In the present article, the low-cycle fatigue lifetime of carbon/epoxy laminated composites has been investigated. The sensitivity analysis has been also performed to study effects of the displacement amplitude and the loading frequency on the low-cycle fatigue lifetimes in composites. For such objective, displacement-control low-cycle fatigue testing has been done on the open-hole standard specimen. Fatigue tests included 4 different displacement amplitudes at 200 mm/min of the loading frequency and 4 different loading frequencies under 7 mm of the displacement amplitude. The sensitivity analysis was carried out by the MINITAB software, considering a linear function for fitting experimental data by the predicting model. Experimental results showed that by increasing the displacement amplitude, the low-cycle fatigue lifetime decreased, as expected. In addition, when the loading frequency enhanced, the low-cycle fatigue lifetime of composites decreased. Besides, the maximum stress had a reverse behavior, compared to the fatigue lifetime. The sensitivity analysis depicted that the displacement amplitude was sensitive on both the fatigue lifetime and the maximum stress. The loading frequency was sensitive on the maximum stress and was not sensitive on the fatigue lifetime.
