Summary Tensile tests at high speeds corresponding to automotive crash events were conducted to understand the dynamic properties of rapidly cured woven carbon fiber composites. The High Strain Rate (HSR) experiments were conducted on a servo-hydraulic machine at constant velocities up to a maximum of 25 m/s (82 ft/s). Results from HSR tests were compared with the static results to determine the rate sensitivity of the composite. A high speed camera was used to capture the failure at HSR. The tensile properties of rapidly cured laminate were compared to oven cured laminate to justify its productivity while maintaining the desired properties. The methodology used to achieve constant velocity during HSR tests is discussed in detail. The specimen geometry was specially designed to suit the test rig and to achieve high speeds during tests. All the specimens failed with linear elasticity until sudden brittle fracture. The Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) images of the fracture zone were used to identify the failure modes observed at static and high strain rates.
