Abstract : A review of current state-of-the-art test methods for evaluation of selected physical and mechanical properties of advanced composites is presented. This report includes constitutive and composite materials acceptance tests, design and structural element tests, and the recommendation, where possible, of specific test methods as accepted standards for current industry wide use.
