This study deals with cumulative damage and its evolution in already impact damage composite structure. In order to follow the growing damage and to compare it with cumulative model, tests are monitored with an InfraRed thermography system. A carbon-epoxy composite is first low-energy impacted and then fatigued under tensioncompression loading. This study also enables a very fast analysis of predicting the damage evolution coupling InfraRed Thermography as NDT method and InfraRed thermography as a following system.
