Abstract:

This report covers an effort to understand, model and modify the fundamental electrical properties of advanced composite materials, specifically graphiteepoxy and boronepoxy. The electrical properties of graphite and boron fibers and of epoxy were measured. The anisotropic conductivity of boron fibers was studied. Models were developed which predicted and electrical properties of the composites--with reasonable accuracy for some cases.
