This research investigates the influence of numerical parameters of micromechanical fatigue damage models on the obtained progressive damage behaviour of fibre-reinforced plastics at transverse tensile fatigue loads. The simulated damage behaviour is evaluated using experimentally observed crack patters published in the literature. The investigated numerical model parameters are (1) whether or not the model considers static failure within a simulated load cycle, (2) the degree of material property degradation after sudden failure and (3) the size of the cycle jump. The results reveal a significant influence of the degree of material degradation and of the cycle jump on the simulated matrix crack formation at both higher and lower fatigue loads. Static failure within a simulated load cycle primarily affects the damage behaviour at higher fatigue loads. The paper gives recommendations of the parameter choice for plausible progressive fatigue damage simulation results. Regarding the cycle jump, an adaptive algorithm is proposed and implemented. This approach leads to plausible fatigue damage results paired with a significant reduction of computation time comparing to a cycle-by-cycle analysis.
