It is the purpose of this study to investigate the effects of fatigue loading on two variations of hybrid composite tubes. The two types of samples are both composed of AS-4D/carbon fibers and e-glass fibers. The key distinctions between the two samples being the orientation and the number of layers. The samples were composed of the following orientations [90/20/90/20/90/20/20/90/20] and [90/90/20/90/20/20/90/20]. The experiment is designed to not only compare the two samples, but to develop some experimental data for a fatigue curve for similar materials. All loading for this experiment takes place in a controlled environment. Both temperature and the specific gravity of the water are measured and controlled.
