Fatigue Life Prediction of CFRP Laminates under Variable Stress Amplitude and Frequency


Article Preview

This paper is concerned with the fatigue life prediction of CFRP laminates under variable cyclic loading using the linear cumulative damage (LCD) rule with statistical approach. Three-point bending fatigue tests for plain-woven CFRP laminates were carried out undervarious cyclic loading with constant and variable stress amplitude and frequency. As results, the applicability of LCD rule to the flexural fatigue life was confirmed for this CFRP laminates.
