Abstract:

The following aspects of fatigue behavior of reinforced plastic composite materials were studied 1 Fiber surface finish effects on fatigue life of glass reinforced plastics. 2 Low cycle fatigue effects on mechanical properties of Graphite reinforced plastics GRP. 3 Hollow glass prepreg composite performance in compression fatigue. 4 GraphiteEpoxy and GraphiteScrim clothepoxy composite behavior in compression fatigue. 5 Quasi-isotropic GRP behavior in tension fatigue. 6 Effect of hostile Humidity-temperature environment on GRP. 7 Tension crack toughness tests and crack propagation in GRP.
