On the mechanism of increasing the mechanical characteristics of cured polymer composite materials under the action of a microwave electromagnetic field

Background and Objectives: The aim of the research is to identify the general mechanism of the processes occurring in the microstructure of polymer composite materials when exposed to an ultrahigh-frequency electromagnetic field in the cured state, contributing to an increase in strength characteristics, based on the analysis of the structural features of the matrix and the interfacial layer of cured carbon fiber and the physical foundations of dielectric heating.
