Recent research has shown that the frequency of cyclic loading significantly affects the fatigue life of certain composites. The effect of loading frequency on various composites like boron/epoxy, boron/aluminium, glass/epoxy laminates, fiber reinforced metal composites of different layup orientations have been reviewed. The influence of loading frequency in the range of 0.01-50 Hz under varying stress ratio (0-1.0), maximum stress, loading waveform, temperature, environment, have been discussed. Loading frequency influences the stiffness change, temperature rise and fatigue life in majority of the tests. The effect of loading frequency on fatigue life is varying with the operating frequency range, temperature range and maximum stress.
