Fatigue of composite materials under aircraft service loading

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

1 Citation (Scopus)


Fatigue damage accumulation and analysis methods are considered for composites and contrasted with metals. The failure of current analysis methods is illustrated and explained by the information missing in load idealization data. Detailed local strain operational monitoring with local strain fatigue data is proposed as a future approach to fatigue life assessment of composite materials under aircraft service loading.
