A number of multiaxial fatigue systems employed for the testing of fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) composites are discussed, and how they may be used to evaluate failure theories. The effects of anisotropy and end fittings are examined for different specimen geometries. A conservative failure criterion is suggested for predicting the biaxial static and fatigue strength of FRP based on limited test data.
