Abstract

The increasing use of polymer composite in civil infrastructure, transportation, and the building industry has generated a great need to improve our understand of issues related to durability and life prediction. Deficiencies in these areas are often a major barrier to the use of composites. To assess the state of the art in composite durability and to identify the most important gaps in our knowledge, a group of experts from industry, university, and government split the topic into 4 areas and organized groups of experts to discussed the key issues in each area. This chapter of the report addresses the area of moisture effects. After a brief summary of critical literature in the area, the report gives the concusses view reached by the committee on the status and needs for the most important scientific and technical issues of the area.
