    Abstract

    Polyamide 66 and two glass fibre composite (DS1110 and DS1143) samples were conditioned in common automotive fluids, water and ethylene glycol at a range of temperatures and their dimensional changes were monitored over a range of times up to 2500 hours. Percentage weight changes in the samples suggested absorption due to Fickian diffusion and that an increase in temperature increased this process.
