In spite of the continuously increasing economic incentives for the use of composite materials, there exists a pronounced lack of understanding of their fundamental property-morphology-processing relationships. Difficulties in determination of these relationships arise from the complex chemorheology of cure, the viscoelastic nature of the polymeric matrix and the complex morphologies of the resin and the resin-reinforcement boundary region. In this paper, the results of a very recent study of the effect of pressure, temperature and time on the thermomechanical properties of graphite/epoxy composites are reported.
