Abstract

High-performance fibers are virtually ubiquitous in our everyday lives. In a variety of structural applications, fibers and fiber-reinforced composites are subjected to cyclic mechanical loading. This paper reviews the fatigue behavior of some common high-performance fibers such as polymer, metal, and ceramic fibers. Fatigue mechanisms unique to each type of fiber are identified and a description of fatigue damage and fracture is provided.
