Abstract

The fundamental concepts of dielectric behavior of polymers and the utilization of dielectric measurements for in situ monitoring of cure of polymers and composites are discussed. Information is presented on currently used dielectric sensors and the procedure for calculation of dielectric parameters from the monitored signal. The review is written to accommodate both the fundamental and the pragmatic aspects of dielectric monitoring of cure. In the final part of the review, a critical assessment is offered of the advantages and disadvantages of dielectric measurements for the in situ monitoring of processing of polymers and composites.
