Abstract

One of the most important issues in the use of resin matrix composite materials in the industrial structures, especially in aeronautical structures, is the behaviour of the material due to moisture sorption through long years of service under cyclic environmental conditions. Tliis moisture diffusion yields an important influence on their durability and weakens their mechanical properties. In previous studies, we proposed and assessed quick solutions to determine the moisture content in the
