There is a drive for modem engineering structures to exploit the excellent specific properties of advanced fibre reinforced composite materials, particularly in aerospace, where manufacturers are under intense pressure to reduce costs and engineer lighter more efficient aircraft. However it is widely recognised that the susceptibility of these materials to transverse impact damage is restricting the extent to which these benefits can be exploited.
