Prediction of the Fatigue Life Based on Stiffness Degradation Concept

Abstract:

Article Preview

In order to predict the fatigue life of matrix-dominated polymer composites, a new model based on stiffness degradation concept was proposed. The effect of off-axis was considered by defining a non-dimensional modified stress level, and the expression of fatigue stress limit could be provided in the new model. Based on the fatigue tension-tension experiment of PI/SiO2 hybrid thin films under different stress levels, the simulated results was confirmed to be well agreeable with the experimental data.
