As a result of the increasing use of composite materials in engineering fields, the study of the scaling effect on impact performance is essential for the design of large-scale structures. The purpose of this study is to develop a method capable of identifying a corrective factor that can be used to evaluate the behavior of panels made by the same material but with scaled geometry when subjected to low velocity impact. The investigation is performed by a customized small drop tower on two flat sheets differing only in geometric scale and made by overlapping carbon fiber weave sheets.

Abstract

As a result of the increasing use of composite materials in engineering fields, the study of the scaling effect on impact performance is essential for the design of large-scale structures. The purpose of this study is to develop a method capable of identifying a corrective factor that can be used to evaluate the behavior of panels made by the same material but with scaled geometry when subjected to low velocity impact. The investigation is performed by a customized small drop tower on two flat sheets differing only in geometric scale and made by overlapping carbon fiber weave sheets.
