Abstract : The Composite Materials Research Group has been very active in the development of methods to cast thermoset resins into the necessary shapes for mechanical and physical testing. This fabrication of neat resins has evolved over the last 5-6 years into a fairly routine process. Nine resin systems from several resin formulators have been molded including Hercules 501-6, 3502, 2220-1, 2220-3, and 4001, Shell Epon 9101, Ciba-Geigy Fibredux 914 and Fiberite 930 and 934. Various specimen configurations were needed for the present program for tension, torsion, fracture toughness, coefficient of thermal expansion, and coefficient of moisture expansion measurements.
