Composite materials are often used preshaped and preformed for the construction
of structures, but for several applications they are usually assembled and joined
Therefore machining processes such as drilling are often required to
assemble and join different components.
Damage induced by the drilling
operation reduces the fatigue strength.
In this paper an experimental
investigation on the behaviour of the fatigue strength of drilled components in
glass fibre reinforced plastic composites subjected to fatigue loading is
The influence of cutting speed, feed rate and hole damage on the
fatigue strength of machined holes has been taken into consideration.
The fatigue behaviour of composite materials has been investigated by several
researchers in order to address the problems arising f...
