Paper Title:
Fatigue Damage in On-Axis and Off-Axis Woven-Fiber/Resin Composite
  Abstract

In this study the tensile static and fatigue behaviour of a woven-fabric laminate is investigated in both the on-axis and off-axis material directions. Emphasis is placed on the development of damage and its influence on the stress-strain behaviour of the laminate. The test results illustrate that there is a high degree of anisotropic behaviour due to anisotropic damage development, which is evident by the variation of the material behaviour between the on-axis and off-axis test specimens. The fatigue tests also suggest that the on-axis specimens exhibit noticeable stiffness degradation, while the off-axis specimens do not. The qualitative results provide significant insight into the type of damage mechanism responsible for the observed behaviour.
