Generation and assessment of fatigue data for fibre-reinforced plastics GPG115

This Guide provides best practice guidance for generating and assessing long-term cyclic fatigue data for fibre-reinforced plastics for material qualification and design purposes. It covers tension-tension, compression-compression and tension-compression fatigue testing and examines both in-plane and through-thickness characterisation. Guidance is given on the use of test methods, non-destructive evaluation and strain measurement techniques, and data analysis and interpretation. The guide is primarily concerned with continuous carbon and glass fibre-reinforced laminated materials.
