This Guide provides best practice guidance for fatigue loading of composite materials and on
the use of traditional static defect tolerance test methods under long-term fatigue loading.
Guidance is also given on the use of non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques for defect
growth detection, and in particular those techniques that can be used for real-time
measurements. The Guide is primarily concerned with carbon and glass fibre-reinforced
polymer composite material systems.
