Fatigue in Composites: Science and Technology of the Fatigue Response of Fibre-reinforced Plastics

1 Review
Fiber composites, like metals, exhibit a form of degradation in service described as fatigue. Engineers must understand composite fatigue because it is a causative agent of design and structural failures. Engineers need to increase their knowledge of the mechanisms which result in degradation in order to predict the life of a composite under specified conditions and produce composites with greater durability.

This book provides an extensive account of contemporary research on fatigue from a selection of internationally recognized researchers. Part one introduces the concept, delivering a historical review of the fatigue behavior of fiber-reinforced plastics and illustrating fatigue test methods and fatigue under multiaxial stress systems. The second part reviews current research on micromechanical aspects, emphasizing long-term behavior, interface performance, delamination, and damage accumulation. The next two sections cover the analysis and testing of fatigue behavior and detail physical, micromechanical, computational, statistical, and life-prediction models for constant and variable stress. The final parts offer an overview of the wide range of composite fatigue-related problems experienced by engineers in aerospace, marine, and structural engineering.

About the author (2003)

Professor Bryan Harris graduated in Industrial Metallurgy from the University of Birmingham, subsequently taking a PhD at Cambridge University and a DSc, again from Birmingham. After working in industry for ICI Metals Division in Birmingham, followed by a spell at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, Connecticut, USA, Professor Harris returned to academia, developing a keen interest in the field of composite materials. In 1976 he was appointed Professor of Materials Science at Bath University where he is now Professor Emeritus. He retains his interest in composite materials, with special emphasis on fatigue, fracture and non-destructive evaluation, but he has also at various times worked on the manufacturing of polymer-, ceramic and metal-matrix composites. From 1984-1999 he was Editor-in-Chief of the international journal Composites Science & Technology. He is currently Materials Consultant for Buro Happold Civil Engineers Ltd.
