This report is second in a series of literature reviews in which hygrothermal effects on aerospace composite materials CM with polymeric matrixes are examined. This report Part II deals primarily with the glass transition temperature and expansion properties due to temperature and moisture. The chapter on residual stresses is also included in this part as these stresses are a direct consequence of the expansion properties. Specific heat, thermal conductivity and emittance are briefly mentioned in Chapter 3.0, while properties connected with moisture absorption have been reviewed extensively in Part I of the series.
