Abstract: AbstractThe microstructure and damage of the interlaminar interface of continuous carbon fiber polymer-matrix structural composites were monitored during dynamic changes in temperature, humidity and stress by contact electrical resistivity measurement. The stress was compressive, in the direction perpendicular to the interface. Temperature, humidity and stress had reversible effects on the resistivity, due to the effects on the interfacial microstructure, such as the extent of contact between fibers of adjacen…
