Paper Title:
Fatigue Life Prediction of Impacted Glass/Epoxy Composites under Variable Amplitude Loading
  Abstract

This paper presents the fatigue behavior of plain-weave E-glass/epoxy composites with impact-induced damage under constant and variable amplitude loading. The constant amplitude fatigue life of the impacted composites can be identified through the prediction model, which was proposed on the carbon/epoxy laminates by authors. Also, the models are derived to calculate the equivalent stress of the composites under variable amplitude loading, considering the impact damage. These models allow fatigue data of the unimpacted and impacted composites under variable amplitude loading to be correlated with constant amplitude data of the unimpacted composites.
