This paper presents a review of a series of significant publications on the mechanical and thermal properties of filamentary-reinforced structural composites in the cryogenic temperature range. The objective, scope of work, and significant conclusions of the selected works are discussed. The temperature dependence of the ultimate tensile strength, tensile modulus, thermal conductivity, and thermal contraction (expansion) is presented for selected composites developed in each program. Problem areas are defined and suggestions are made for future work.
