Composites are commonly used materials in many structural applications because of their advantageous like lightness or strength-to-weight ratio. With the increased use of composites it has been understood that their deformations in terms of fatigue is more complex than that of metals. Although fatigue behavior of composites has been studied extensively, little attention was paid to optimization of composites under fatigue.
