Experimental investigation of the fatigue behaviour of off-axis CFRP laminates using Non Destructive Techniques Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Composite materials are in practice subjected to fatigue loading, which most of the times happens to be multiaxial. This multiaxiality can for example appear in tubular specimens under combined tension/torsion loading or in cruciform specimens tested bi-axially. Due to the anisotropy that characterizes composite materials, multiaxial internal loads also occur even under simple uniaxial external loading. Therefore, it is preferable to use ...
