Abstract

Barely Visible Impact Damage (BVID) can occur when laminated composite material is subject to out-of-plane impact loads and can result in a significant reduction in compressive strength. This paper will report on compression testing of laminates optimised to maximise damage tolerance. Results show an increase of up to 29% in Compression After Impact (CAI) strength in comparison to a baseline configuration.
