Fatigue damage accumulation in notched woven-ply thermoplastic and thermoset laminates at high-temperature: Influence of matrix ductility and fatigue life prediction

Abstract : This work was aimed at investigating the influence of matrix ductility on the high-temperature tensile fatigue behaviour in notched and unnotched C/PPS (thermoplastic) and C/Epoxy (thermoset) laminates. Damage mechanisms and overstress accommodation near the hole have been discussed by means of X-rays observations and fractography analysis. In order to quantitatively evaluate the fatigue damage within notched and unnotched laminates as a function of the cycles, a damage variable based on a mean strain calculated on each cycle from the experimental stress–strain loops has been used. Finally, a simple analytical model was applied to test its predictive capabilities to evaluate the fatigue damage accumulation in both materials. This model proved to be relevant to predict the evolution of fatigue damage in notched C/PPS composites but not in C/Epoxy laminates.
