Abstract:

Three aspects of the fatigue of reinforced plastic composite materials were examined in detail. Included were a study of cumulative fatigue damage mechanisms and analysis for several composite materials a study of the effect of a complex cyclic high temperature and high humidity on fatigue life and determination of the influence of fiber orientation and matrix on the fatigue life of composites.
