About the creep-fatigue interaction on the fatigue behaviour of off-axis woven-ply thermoplastic laminates at temperatures higher than Tg

Abstract : The influence of plasticity and viscous effects on the fatigue behaviour of off-axis C/PPS laminates was investigated at temperatures higher than glass transition temperature. The obtained results clearly show that creep and fatigue are mutually influencing phenomena. Compared to the reference fatigue behaviour (with no prior loading), the fatigue life can be significantly extended with prior creep depending on loading conditions. Indeed, the strain accumulation seems to slow down after a long time creep preload, as if the time-dependent mechanisms were “evacuated” during this preload. The same conclusion can be drawn for the damage accumulation when the prior creep stresses are higher than the damage threshold or when the hold time is long enough, inducing significant plastic deformations. In angle-ply laminates, such deformations are associated with the reorientation of fibres. They contribute to the reduction of stress intensities, which results in increasing both fatigue life and maximum strain ɛmax at failure during fatigue loadings.
