Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

This paper describes the use of dielectric spectroscopy as a nondestructive method for monitoring first solvent ingress at elevated temperatures within aluminum adhesively bonded joints, and second, water uptake within carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) bonded joints. Dielectric measurements were carried out in both frequency and time domains, allowing for changes in the dielectric permittivity and loss to be calculated.
