The effect of elevated and lowered temperatures on the elastic properties of carbon fiber-epoxy composite material was studied using multi-phase unit cell (MPUC) numerical model. Evaluation of the elastic properties of carbon fiber-epoxy composite material is based on the finite element method. Obtained results confirmed that elevated and lowered temperature has noticeable influence on elastic properties of carbon fiber-epoxy composite material. As demonstrated, this fact has considerable influence on accurate evaluation of generated thermal stresses in real laminated composite structures, exposed to extremely high or low operating temperatures.
