Abstract:

The objective of this review is to evaluate the potential of new andor improved techniques and combinations thereof in the prediction of field life of polymeric and composite materials in military hardware. Various types of spectroscopic methods, chemical separation techniques, and dielectric and thermal methods of analysis were used to determine mechanisms and rates of deterioration on these materials after prolonged exposure to various weather conditions.
