Improving fatigue life predictions: theory and experiment on unidirectional and crossply polymer matrix composites
MetadataShow full item record
The unidirectional fatigue predictions were vastly improved over the traditional SN Curve. While the crossply predictions were not as good, they still demonstrated the applicability of the critical element SN curve to a material with a different geometry. Additionally. such a method may have application in real-time durability evaluation of composite components.
