Abstract:

A detailed description of an interferometric method for measuring diffusivity is described. Preliminary data obtained from this device are presented and briefly compared with the results of long-term immersion studies on both cast resin and filament-wound cylinders. Moisture absorption in the former was observed to be a relatively constant phenomenon, while a more random data spread was observed in the filamentwound group.
