In this article, experimental results are presented investigating the response of glass fiber composites subjected to low velocity impact loading. The resulting load‐displacement traces and deformation modes have been used to validate a number of numerical models. Here, finite element models have been developed to predict the impact behavior of the composite plates. Damage in the woven glass‐fiber...
