Composite materials are being widely used in lot of applications with range from regular structural applications to naval applications. When using composites for naval applications, it is necessary to investigate the effect of moisture on the composite behaviour. Much research happened to study the effect of moisture on the strength characteristics of various composites, less investigation has been done to study the effect of moisture on vibration characteristics of composites. The current work aims at evaluating the effect of moisture and salinity on the vibration characteristics of SMA particulate Epoxy matrix composite as well as pure epoxy material. For this purpose, a test rig is fabricated and instrumented using IoT. ADXL345 sensor with Arduino is used for measuring vibrations. Excel is used for further data analysis. The experimental results are detailed in the paper
