    Abstract

    The first part of this paper [1] described the nondestructive evaluation of ±45° carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) laminates before and after exposure to thermal cycling or electron irradiation. In contrast to predictions based on computational analyses, only minor matrix cracking could be observed in the graphite/epoxy laminates. The effects of different types of fibers in the prepregs and of different curing temperatures of the epoxy resins were negligible. The polyimide-based laminate, however, suffered both severe cracking and delaminations due to thermal cycling.
