dc.description.abstractGlass fiber reinforced composites (GFRC) are used in a wide variety of applications within the U.S. Navy. With a potential increase in arctic operations in the Navy’s future, it is important to understand how GFRCs will react at arctic temperatures. Previous research has shown that material properties of GFRC at cold temperatures are dependent on the reaction between the fiber and the resin, but little research has been conducted that was geared toward naval applications at arctic temperatures. This thesis focuses on the tensile properties of GFRC, resin, and glass fiber used in previous NPS-related composite research. The properties of the individual components are compared to assist in the design of composite structures, and provide a baseline to assess the need to re-conduct previous composite experiments at arctic temperatures.en_US
