Fatigue damage growth mechanisms in 16 and [0, 90]4s laminates of APC-2 subjected to three-point flexure were studied using scanning electron microscopy. Building on an understanding gained from the study of statically tested samples, specific fatigue mechanisms were identified. For each laminate geometry a coherent progression of damage build-up is proposed.
