The energy-based fatigue model presented in this work overcomes different shortcomings of existing model approaches, such as the need of separated assumptions for constant life diagrams. By using the range of the normalised strain energy density and a probabilistic based mode interaction approach, a failure mode dependent fatigue model for CFRP is established for directly predicting constant life diagrams and calculating the fatigue life for multiaxial loads with constant amplitude. In this contribution, the ply-based model and some of its main features, such as the consideration of residual stresses or of mode interactions at general threedimensional stress states, are shortly summarised. The stepwise model validation on different literature datasets is considered in more detail, including prediction of SN-curves with scatter band and constant life diagrams.
