Paper Title:
Damage Assessment through Impact Force History Recording
  Abstract

Low velocity impact is a frequent and inevitable in-service event, with higher occurrence in transportation structures. The damages following such an event are more diverse, extended and with more severe consequences in the case of composite materials and structures. The research work presented here concerns fibre reinforced polymeric composites in the forms of plates and pipes. It is continuing an effort meant to allow customers exploiting such structures to have a short cut in monitoring the integrity of this kind of structures. To this end, it is proposed a careful following of the impact force history recording, which can offer valuable and more direct information about the damage level produced under this insidious loading.
