Abstract

Plots the degree of cure versus a time dependent temperature based on equations found in Chapter 3 Section 2 of "Experimental Characterization of Advanced Composite Materials" by Carlsson, Adams, and Pipes.  Plots are Temperature vs Degree of Cure, Temperature vs Time, and Degree of Cure vs Time. Inputs are rate constants and time and temperature data points.
