dc.description.abstractA 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 (iii) inter-fibre fatigue. The inter-fibre fatigue aspect is based on a fatigue-modified version of the Puck multiaxial failure criterion for static failure. The model is implemented in a user material finite element subroutine and calibrated against fatigue test data for unidirectional glass fibre epoxy. A programme of uniaxial fatigue tests on quasi-isotropic glass fibre epoxy laminates is presented for validation of the novel fatigue damage methodology. The latter is successfully validated across a range of stress levels.en_US
