Abstract
Short fiber reinforced composite (SFRC) materials have a different fiber orientation distribution (FOD) at every point. The fatigue properties of SFRC are known to depend on the FOD. The Master SN curve (MSNC) method for predicting an SN curve for a given FOD based on the known SN curve for the reference FOD is used to predict the local SN curve of a SFRC component by relating the damage at the microscopic level to the macroscopic fatigue properties. A simplified version of MSNC method, which needs even less experimental input, uses an assumption of constant SN curve slope is also presented in this paper. The paper validates both variants of the MSNC method on t...
