Abstract The mechanical response of composite structures may be affected by harsh environments, particularly when the matrix has a major contribution, e.g. with off-axis plies. This study aims at investigating the influence of the winding pattern on the axial compressive behavior of filament wound composite cylinder under hygrothermal conditioning. Carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy cylinders were manufactured via filament winding with 1/1, 3/1, and 5/1 mosaic winding patterns and submitted to distilled and artificial seawater environmental conditioning. Water uptake for each hygrothermal conditioning was periodically monitored. The winding pattern influenced both compressive strength and stiffness, and the environmental conditioning decreased strength up to ˜10%. The winding pattern with three diamonds around the circumference of the cylinders provides the properties in term of compressive strength and stiffness.
