Effect of Environment

Chapter
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 236)

Abstract

The advantageous properties of FMLs with respect to environmental conditions are explained based on the different diffusion characteristics compared to composites. The chapter illustrates how various environments influence the mechanical, fatigue and damage tolerance properties. In this context, the effect of test frequency on the fatigue performance is illustrated.
