A Multiaxial Fatigue Damage Model for Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites
(Elsevier (Scienc Direct), 2013)
A multiaxial fatigue damage model for fibre reinforced polymercomposite materials is presented. The model combines (i) fatigue-induced fibre strength and modulus degradation, (ii) irrecoverable cyclic strain effects and ...
A preliminary design methodology for fatigue life prediction of polymer composites for tidal turbine blades
Tidal turbine blades experience significant fatigue cycles during operation and it is expected that fatigue strength will be a major consideration in their design. Glass fibre reinforced polymers are a candidate low-cost ...
