This paper presents experimental results on the mechanical performance of advanced carbon/epoxy composites with embedded polymeric films. The composite laminates with polymeric films, which are potentially used as a sensor/actuator carrier for structural health monitoring applications, were investigated under various mechanical loadings including low velocity impact, single lap shear and short beam shear. The preliminary work showed that embedment of those polymeric films does not degrade, but could significantly improve, the mechanical properties of the composite laminates.
