Methods used for life prediction of titanium matrix composites under isothermal and thermomechanical (TMF) fatigue are reviewed. Models containing a single parameter are shown to have applicability only under limited conditions. Two models, a dominant damage and a life fraction model, demonstrate predictive capabilities over a broad range of loads, frequencies, temperatures, and TMF parameters. Relationships between the underlying fatigue mechanisms and the individual terms in the models are illustrated.
