Changes of mechanical properties, namely of modulus of elasticity, often play a role of damage accumulation indicators in the framework of fatigue behaviour of composite materials. In order to improve the reliability of these indicators for identification of material degradation process it is necessary to eliminate the influence of external loading and volume forces associated with thermal expansion of heterogeneous material at various temperatures. Therefore the paper deals with description of experimental assessment of relation between external load and material stiffness and also studies the dependency of material stiffness on temperature. For the monitoring of degradation process ultrasonic measurement was used. Obtained results are discussed with respect to fatigue testing of material and also interpreted from the micromechanical point of view.
