Abstract: The analysis of a pultruded E-glass reinforced polyester (GFRP) composite is performed by TGA, DSC and DMA methods. The data obtained from these analysis methods agreed well with theoretical models applied to the GFRP. The specific heat capacity of the composite was found to decrease over heating and the decomposition process.
