FRACTURE OF FIBER-REINFORCED BEAMS DUE TO IMPACT LOADING

Experimental studies were made on the dynamic failure of graphite/epoxy fiber reinforced beams of three different angle ply laminates. The cantilevered beam specimens were impacted with tip velocities ranging from 1 ft/sec to 20 ft/sec. Various aspects of the failure of the different types of beams were noted.
