Fatigue Resistance

Generally composites show excellent fatigue resistance when compared with most metals. However, since fatigue failure tends to result from the gradual accumulation of small amounts of damage, the fatigue behaviour of any composite will be influenced by the toughness of the resin, its resistance to microcracking, and the quantity of voids and other defects which occur during manufacture. As a result, epoxy-based laminates tend to show very good fatigue resistance when compared with both polyester and vinylester, this being one of the main reasons for their use in aircraft structures.
