Fatigue Failure of Fibrous Composite Based on Multiscale Approach

LAUREN KADLEC, CASSANDRA HALLER, YOUNG KWON, SOO-JEONG PARK, YUN-HAE KIM

Abstract


A framework was presented for a fatigue failure model of fibrous composites using a multiscale approach, which uses the fatigue data of the fiber and matrix materials, respectively. Using this model, fatigue failure of fibrous composite materials and structures can be predicted from the constituent material behaviors. To that end, fiber bundles were tested under cyclic loading to determine their residual strength and stiffness. A successful completion of the model is expected to replace many fatigue tests as the configuration of the fibrous composite is varied.
