Abstract

Measurements of thermal conductivity, specific heat, and dielectric properties of an epoxy resin after electron, gamma, fast-neutron, and thermal-neutron irradiation are presented. The experimental results show the influence of the different types of radiation on the typical amorphous behaviour of the thermal properties. The H2-permeation rate for two types of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastics are presented.
