Fatigue of fiber reinforced composites under multiaxial loading Chapter uri icon


  • The chapter provides an overview on the multiaxial fatigue behavior of short fiber and continuous fiber reinforced composite materials based on recent experimental results as well as on those coming from an extensive literature investigation. Life prediction criteria available in the literature are illustrated and the reliability of their estimations is discussed. Eventually, indications for future developments on the subjects are provided. © 2010 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
