The effect of accelerated environmental ageing on the interphase of a glass fibre/vinyl ester composite

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


This study aims to examine the correlation between the moisture uptake at the glass fibre/vinyl ester interphase and its effect in the micro-mechanical performance of the system. Moreover, the transferability of material properties and ageing effects between the microscale and macroscale were investigated.
