Damage accumulation during cyclic loading of a continuous alumina fibre reinforced aluminium composite

Fibres fracture gradually during the fatigue cycling of continuous alumina fibre reinforced aluminium. The number of fibre breaks increases linearly with the logarithmic cycle number, depends on the maximum stress and the stress ratio, and agrees with published data for the fatigue of bare fibres.
