The paper is reporting a new experimental technique to study the dynamic behaviour of composite materials subjected to bending direct impact. It is based on the Hopkinson bar system allowing to observe material behaviour at very high impact velocities. The material used to perform the tests is a woven glass-fibre-reinforced Polyamide 6.
Keywords: impact velocity, dynamic bending, composite, shock, Hopkinson bar.
