The correlation between structure/microstructure and thermomechanical properties has been investigated by the Thermally Stimulated Creep (TSC) technique in a high performance thermostable thermoset matrix composite. The high resolving power of this technique allows us to analyse the α retardation mode. The kinetics of molecular movements liberated at the glass transition has been investigated by the technique of fractional loading: the analysis of each elementary process gives the real compliance and the retardation time as a function of temperature. The values of the activation parameters show the existence of a compensation phenomenon which characterizes the microstructure. It also gives access to the loss compliance of the composite material as a function of temperature and frequency. The predictive calculation of loss compliance has been validated by the results obtained by dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA).
