Water–Mechanical Property Coupling [chapter]

F. Jacquemin, S. Fréour
2013 Solid Mechanics and its Applications  
The present contribution investigates the effects related to the plasticization of the polymer matrix occurring during the water sorption process on the internal mechanical state profiles, at the constituent and ply scales. Then, two multi-physics models are considered to account that the moisture sorption depends on the internal mechanical states: the free volume theory and a thermodynamic approach.
