THE EFFECT OF THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT ON STRESSED AND UNSTRESSED GRAPHITE/EPOXY COMPOSITES

Three types of graphite/epoxy composite materials were tested by immersion in tap and synthetic sea water. One consisted of a laminate comprising undirectionally oriented high tensile strength graphite "prepreg" tape, the second was a combination of "prepreg" tapes, and the third comprised a high tensile strength "prepreg" woven fabric laminate. The data developed show the effects of a marine environment on the interlaminar shear and flexural properties of the composites.
