A preliminary study was conducted regarding Thermoelastic Stress Analysis (TSA) for use in monitoring stiffness degradation of multi-directional GFRP laminated specimens during tension-tension fatigue loading. The specimens were made from a non-crimp fabric consisting of UD fibers stitched to a layer off-axis backing fiber bundles. The thermoelastic responses of the UD surface and backing fiber surface were compared. It was observed that the thermoelastic response differed between two faces of the fabric and was influenced by the presence of backing fibers on the surface.
