Fatigue Behavior of Impacted Plain-Weave Glass/Epoxy Composites under Tensile Fatigue Loading

Abstract:

Article Preview

The goals of this paper are to identify the impact damage behavior of plain-weave E-glass/epoxy composites and predict the fatigue life of the composites with impact-induced damage under constant amplitude loading. To identify these behaviors, the low velocity impact and fatigue after impact tests are performed for glass/epoxy composites having two types of fiber orientations. The impact damage behavior is dependent on the fiber orientation of the composites. The fatigue life of the impacted composites can be identified through the prediction model, which was proposed on the carbon/epoxy laminates by authors regardless of fiber orientations.
