A probabilistic model for fatigue damage accumulation in composite laminates
A stochastic model for the accumulation of fatigue damage in composite laminates is proposed. The model considers the accumulation of fatigue damage as an evolutionary stochastic process and attempts to predict the ...
Application of Markov chains to the critical element model for determining the fatigue life of composites
A stochastic model for predicting the lifetime of composite laminates subjected to multiaxial fatigue loading is proposed. The model is based on the application of Markov chains to the well known "critical element" model ...
