In order to better understand the fatigue performance of textile composites research, this paper reviews the influence of fabric structure, environmental factors, self-heat during fatigue experiment on the fatigue of composite materials, and the recent research on fatigue strength model of composite materials are scrutinized. Firstly, the fatigue properties and damage of composites reinforced by different fabric structures are compared and analyzed, revealing that the fatigue and damage of composites are affected by the reinforcing structures. Environmental factors, such as water, temperature, chemical medium and ultraviolet radiation, have different damage mechanisms on textile composite materials, but they all make the composite fatigue life shorter. The spontaneous heat generated by the sample during the experiment also leads to premature failure of the composite. The problems in composite fatigue are summarized, and the development directions of composites in the future are proposed.

Key words: fabric structure, composite material, fatigue performance, fatigue strength model
