This paper deals with the fatigue behaviour of a short fibre reinforced thermoplastic under multi-axial cyclic stress. Based on experimental results on notched and plain specimens, limits of existing methods for the fatigue life estimation in the design process of components exposed to complex multi-axial loads were investigated. In this study, a fatigue failure hypothesis was implemented that assesses the stress components in accordance with the correlating fatigue strengths in the material coordinate system, considering potential interaction between the stress components. Striving for a verified multiusable fatigue life assessment method, multiaxial load cases were examined experimentally. The experimental results on unnotched and notched specimens and the fatigue life estimation on the basis of the Tsai-Wu-failure hypothesis will be presented.
