To properly understand the performance of Composites, one of the most broadly used methods is the CAI (Compression After Impact) test. Low energy impacts can be considered the most dangerous since the damage they cause can be complex and affect all plies of the structure from matrix and fiber crack to delamination. To ensure a level of high quality and compliance with safety standards, impact testing is a key in gathering knowledge as to how these materials behave and may be damaged when impacted.
