Abstract : Techniques for the jinpact testing of composite materials are briefly discussed. The application of the torsional Hopkinson pressure bar to the study of the dynamic failure of glass-reinforced epoxy-based composites is then described. Torque-twist curves are presented for thin-walled tubular specimens of cross-ply and woven mat reinforced laminates, cut with the specimen
