Abstract

We investigate both experimentally and numerically the failure behavior of woven glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite laminates subjected to tensile cyclic loading at cryogenic temperatures using the open hole specimens. Tension-tension fatigue tests on the open hole specimens were performed at cryogenic temperatures, and micrographic investigations of failed specimens were undertaken to assess the damage around the hole. Then, a numerical procedure based on the finite element method was used to evaluate the material fatigue strength of the woven GFRP laminates. A comparison of the obtained results against existing experimental results was made, and the relationship between the material fatigue strength and the notched fatigue strength of the woven GFRP laminates was discussed.
