Interaction of inter- and intralaminar damage in scaled quasistatic indentation tests: X-ray CT-scan Images



This set of X-Ray Computed Tomography (CT)-scanning images presents the complete
internal damage structure of a composite laminate under transverse static indentation
loading. This provides additional information to complement the journal paper 'Interaction of inter-
and intralaminar damage in scaled quasi-static indentation tests: Part 1-Experiments'. It has been made available to facilitate readers’ understanding of the interaction between difference damage mechanisms in low-velocity impact in laminated composites.
CT-scanning was conducted at by the Advance Composite Centre for Innovation and Science (ACCIS), University of Bristol. A Nikon XTH225ST CT scanner was used. It has a 1 micron focal spot size and 225 kV, 225W microfocus X-ray source. X-ray images were re-sized and rearranged into a single .pdf file.
