Abstract:

Data were generated on the effect of various environments on the physical, thermal, and mechanical properties of Thornel 300Narmco 5208 composites. The laminates were prepared from three-inch wide prepreg tape in accordance with current aerospace specifications. The environments included steady state humidity conditioning for two exposure periods, cyclic humidity conditioning which conductivity, density, steady state thermal exposure, thermo- humidity cycling, intralaminar shear, flex tests, Thornel 300 GraphiteNarmco 5208, graphiteepoxy composites, laminate data, laminate fabrication, moisture weight gain. The mechanical properties investigated included tension, compression, in-plane shear, interlaminar shear and flexural static properties, fatigue, creep and stress-rupture resistances.
