The “Airbus CAI” fi xture is used to test the impact resistance of carbon and other fi ber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) composite laminates. These materials are prone to great reduction in compressive strength even when the impact load is insuffi cient to cause visible damage. The post-impact compression test is used widely to assess the relative performance of different composite laminates with different fi ber matrix combinations. In the fi rst part of the test the laminates are subjected to low-velocity impact loading simulating tool drops and fl ying debris. Specimens then undergo a compression after impact(CAI) test on an electromechanical or servohydraulic testing machine.
