Summary Out-of-autoclave processing parameters were tailored to investigate the effect of resin viscosity on mechanical performance. Faster heating rates improved the shear and fracture mechanisms of carbon fibre composites by improving their fibre to matrix adhesion, as a result of a decrease in resin viscosity.
