Paper Title:
A Method for Identifying Asymmetric Dissimilar Constant Fatigue Life Diagrams for CFRP Laminates
  Abstract

The full shape of constant fatigue life (CFL) diagram has been identified for three kinds of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) laminates of [45/90/-45/0]2s, [0/60/-60]2s and [0/90]3s lay-ups, respectively. First, the effects of mean stress on fatigue behavior are observed for the quasi-isotropic [45/90/-45/0]2s CFRP laminate. It is clearly observed that the CFL diagram turns out asymmetric and the peak of the CFL diagram is slightly offset to the right of the alternating stress axis. The CFL plots indicate that the alternating stress component of fatigue load becomes maximal at a critical stress ratio closely equal to the compressive strength to tensile one (i.e. a C/T strength ratio). It is also demonstrated that CFL curves for different constant values of life are linear in the range of a short life, but they turn quadratic in the range of a longer life. Similar features are observed for the other kinds of CFRP laminates. Then, to construct the asymmetric dissimilar shape of CFL diagrams, a new methodology is developed on the basis of the static strengths in tension and compression and the reference S-N relationship for the critical stress ratio. An efficient procedure for determining the reference S-N relationship for the critical stress ratio by using fatigue data for another stress ratio is also developed.
