AbstractThe low-speed impact and the compression after impact properties of a carbon fibre/epoxy composite material were investigated using several advanced non-destructive evaluation techniques and experimental mechanics methods. The impact damage measurements, and the residual compressive strength after impact and after cyclic loading, are presented and compared with data generated following a different impact condition. The potential application of non-destructive testing techniques to evaluate deformation/damage growth during cyclic loading is also discussed.
