Glass Fiber Composite laminates were subjected to low velocity impact at 2 m/s using a semi-hemispherical drop tower tup. Impact damage were observed and recorded over a wide range of temperatures. Of particular interest is the post impact strength at these test temperatures. The effect of temperature variation on the impact damages and on the residual compressive buckling strength and elastic modulus is evaluated based on the test results.
