**Analysis of Lamina Hygrothermal Behavior**

**Effects of changes in hygrothermal environment on mechanical behavior of polymer composites:**

1. Hygrothermal deformations change the stress and strain distributions. 2. Matrix – dominated properties under transverse, off-axis and shear loading are altered, particularly in the glass transition region.

**From http://en. wikipedia**

From The failure of an O-ring seal was determined to be the cause of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on January 28, A contributing factor was cold weather prior to the launch. This was famously demonstrated on television by Caltech physics professor Richard Feynman, when he placed a small O-ring into ice-cold water, and subsequently showed its loss of pliability before an investigative committee. O-rings are now examined under high-power video microscopes for defects. The material of the failed O-ring was FKM (a fluoroelastomer) which was specified by the shuttle motor contractor, Morton-Thiokol. FKM is not a good material for cold temperature applications. When an O-ring is cooled below its Tg (glass transition temperature), it loses its elasticity and becomes brittle. More importantly, when an O-ring is cooled near, but not beyond, its Tg, the cold O-ring, once compressed, will take longer than normal to return to its original shape. O-rings (and all other seals) work by creating positive pressure against a surface thereby preventing leaks. On the night before the launch, exceedingly low air temperatures were recorded. On account of this, NASA technicians performed an inspection. The ambient temperature was within launch parameters, and the launch sequence was allowed to proceed. However, the temperature of the rubber O-rings remained significantly lower than that of the surrounding air. During his investigation of the launch footage, Dr. Feynman observed a small out-gassing event from the Solid Rocket Booster (SRB) at the joint between two segments in the moments immediately preceding the explosion. This was blamed on a failed O-ring seal. The escaping high temperature gas impinged upon the external tank, and the entire vehicle was destroyed as a result.

**Challenger O-ring stiffness vs. temperature**

Actual O-ring temperature at launch was below Tg and material was too stiff to fill gaps and form proper seal against metal motor case as it expanded under pressure O-ring Stiffness Desired O-ring temperature is above Tg so that material is pliable enough to fill gaps and form seal proper seal against metal rocket motor case as it expanded under pressure Temperature Tg

11
Conclusions When designing with polymers, knowledge of the glass transition temperature , Tg, and the operating temperature range are essential Structural polymers should operate below Tg, and rubbery polymers (elastomers) should operate above Tg The operating temperature should not be in or near the glass transition region, as stiffness and strength are very sensitive to temperature in this region

**Distribution of Temperature and Moisture – one dimensional case**

For typical composites, the values of C, Kz, Dz and are such that T approaches equilibrium ~ 106 times faster than C, so temperature can usually be assumed equal to ambient temperature Ta. Moisture concentration requires further analysis, However,if diffusivity is constant, Fick’s second law is (5.3)
