Standard Test Method for Moisture Absorption Properties and Equilibrium Conditioning of Polymer Matrix Composite Materials
|Publication Date:||1 January 1998|
|ICS Code (Laminated sheets):||83.140.20|
1.1 This test method covers a procedure (Procedure A) for the determination of moisture absorption or desorption properties in the through-the-thicknes
1.2 The calculation of the through-the-thicknes
1.3 The evaluation by Procedure A of the moisture equilibrium content material property does not assume, and is therefore not limited to, single-phase Fickian diffusion behavior.
1.4 The procedures used by this test method may be performed, and the resulting data reduced, by suitable automatic equipment.
1.5 This test method is consistent with the recommendations of MIL-HDBK-17B (1), which describes the desirable attributes of a conditioning and moisture property determination procedure.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.7 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text the inch-pound units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
