Fatigue Behavior of Non-Crimp Fabrics
The fatigue behavior of non-crimp-fabrics under different multi-axial loading conditions is presented, using a beneficial characteristic of the material, i.e. the fact that cracks may be detected by using an optical microscope. This allows to compare two different damage parameters, the crack density and the stiffness reduction over the life of the specimens.
