N2 - It is generally appreciated that the ingress of moisture in composites can have adverse effects on matrix-dominated properties such as the glass transition temperature and compressive mechanical properties. Moisture ingress in composites can also lead to swelling and blistering. A number of excellent studies have been reported on the detection, modelling and effects of moisture ingress on the properties of thermosetting resins (matrix) and composites. However, it is generally taken for granted that the quality of the resin and the processing conditions used to cross-link the resin are identical.
