Abstract

This paper deals with an experimental tests campaign addressed to investigate the structural behaviour of short Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymers (GFRP) plates (PA66 GF30) under Low Velocity Impact (LVI) phenomena, characterized by different impact energy levels, according to the ASTM D7136 requirement. The scope of this research activity must be found in a wider scenario, in which the experimental characterization can be the key-step to develop an established numerical model for the simulation of the experimental tests. Under a Certification by Analysis (CbA) purpose, an established numerical model can be used, rather than to virtually characterize the behaviour of specimens (reducing the costs related to the experimental tests), to simulate LVI on large structural component difficult to test in a laboratory.
