    Abstract

    The economic and efficient exploitation of composite materials in critical load bearing applications relies on the ability to predict safe operational lives without excessive conservatism. Developing life prediction and monitoring techniques in these complex, inhomogeneous materials requires an understanding of the various failure mechanisms which can take place. This article describes a range of damage mechanisms which are observed in polymer, metal and ceramic matrix composites.
