Triaxial woven carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRPs) are an important branch of modern engineering materials, with wide applications in space. This communication gives a short overview of the effect of temperature on the tensile strength of triaxial woven CFRP. Tensile tests were performed on this composite at liquid nitrogen temperature (77K), 100K, room temperature and 373K. Mechanical load was applied along both the axial and transverse directions, and the effects of temperature and loading direction on the fracture load were discussed. This work is the first to demonstrate the tensile property of triaxial woven CFRP from low to high temperatures.
