A New S-N Curve Model of Fiber Reinforced Plastic Composite
Based on an amount of fatigue experimental data of fiber reinforced plastic composite, a new three-parameter S-N curve model is proposed to describe the relationships between the loads and fatigue life under constant amplitude cyclic loading. As the logistic curve behaves as sigmoidal which is the similar with previous S-N models, and from this comparability, an S-N equation with logistic’ form has been established. The model can assess the fatigue behaviors of FRP under various loading conditions, such as, tension-tension (T-T), tension-compression (T-C) or compression-compression (C-C) loading under different stress ratios of the whole region of fatigue life. Several examples are employed to illustrate that the model has ability to fit several different sets of experimental data accurately.
