Within the marine world many boats are constructed from composite materials, that useclassification society rules to predict their strength. As these vessels age, fatigue and remaining lifetime are of considerable interest to owners and operators. This paper seeks to identify an appropriate S-N curve and produce an example lifetime calculation.
