Z-pin high rate mode I and II experiments



This repository contains experimental data from high rate mode I and mode II testing of z-pinned composites. It was conducted under the EPSRC funded research grant "Understanding Delamination Suppression at High Deformation Rates in Through-Thickness Reinforced Laminated Composites" (grant reference no. EP/M015319/1).
