This study is concerned on the fatigue behaviour of short glass fiber-reinforced styrene-maleic anhydride. Six material configurations manufactured into tensile bars through injection molding were tested in tension-tension fatigue to determine the ways by which the interface controls the change in the mechanical properties of composite. The materials were tested under both wet and dry conditions. The damage in the experimental materials was examined by monitoring three indicators. Fatigue performance was directly related to the fiber-matrix interface. Moreover, fatigue damage was seen to accumulate in a three-stage process in the material.
