Abstract

Fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites (FRPMCs) are the most promising and valuable material developed in the last few decades. In response to the increased research and publications concerning the thermal stability of FRPMCs, this review has culled typical journals for publications relevant to structural stability. In this review, the effects of temperature on the structural integrity of FRPMCs are discussed from the perspective of matrix types, fiber types, nanoparticle (NP) modifications on resin matrix, and various related mechanical properties. For NP-modified FRPMCs, characterization of all anisotropic properties under various strain rates and temperatures becomes essential for analysis, design, and numerical simulations. Improving the structural stability of FRPMCs at different temperatures is an important direction.
