Abstract

This paper presents the experimental results of the influence of water ageing after mechanical on glassfiber composites, compared with Kevlar-fiber composites. The tested specimens were subjected to fatigue during various numbers of cycles (100 to 50000). After that, they were immersed into tap water and simulated seawater for different periods (4, 20 and 40 days). Next, the tensile tests were made on the unaged and aged samples in order to determine the evolution of the strength and stiffness under local interactions of the water absorption and fatigue. The obtained results showed that tensile characteristics were clearly affected by the immersion treatment and fatigue loading. In fact, the residual stiffness and residual strength decreased when the immersion time and cycle number of fatigue increased, indicating that the studied composites have experienced some forms of mechanical damage
