Abstract : The general fatigue behaviour of composite structures is presented. The verification and certification philosophy, depending on the special behaviour of this material, is shown. On this basis a lot of structure tests were carried out at IABG, taking test parameters such as damages, environmental influence, load conditions etc. into consideration. The summary of these tests is presented.
