    Abstract :

    The aim of the research work was to investigate the effect of hygrothermal on mechanical properties such as tensile, flexural and interlaminar shear strength of vinylester/carbon and Isopolyester /carbon composites exposed at a temperature of 600 C for 196 days in artificial sea water. Both composites exhibited reduction of mechanical properties due to higher moisture absorption at initial stages, but in the longer duration saturation in mechanical properties was observed. The UTS and flexural strength of vinylester/carbon dropped by about 3.20% and 5.07% respectively, while for isopolyester/carbon composites the reduction was 9.42% and 11.03% respectively. The moisture observation of vinylester/carbon composites was superior compared to isopolyester/carbon composites. SEM images of fracture surface of carbon reinforced composite samples were analysed.
