Thermal-Fatigue Oxidation of Carbon-Fiber Reinforced Polyimide Composite
Extensive studies of thermal oxidation have mostly focused on the isothermal oxidation of high-temperature polyimide-matrix composites; very few have addresses thermal fatigue or nonisothermal oxidation and the associated weight loss kinetics in the literature. According to thermal activation theory and experimental results concerning isothermal oxidation, a method for predicting anisotropic thermal-fatigue oxidation is developed for the composites.
