    Abstract

    Compression fatigue of composites has attracted considerable interest in recent years. It has been established that, unlike metallic structures, compression fatigue of composites is an important design consideration. There is significant life reduction for both tension-compression and compression-compression loading when compared to tension-tension loading. The fatigue failures are generally accompanied by progressive delaminations, fiber splitting, and fiber buckling.
