This work was carried out to bring out the differences in drop weight low velocity impact behavior of two quasi-isotropic (QI) laminates. These laminates were made of AS4/914 carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The layup sequence chosen was [0/45/-45/90]2Sand [0//90/45/-45]2S.Two types of impactors were employed for the impact tests. One is a hemispherical-end and the other is of a conical-end. Coupon level specimens were supported on all four sides during the impact test. The impact energy was calculated for the laminates and the difference, as a comparison, in each case is presented. It has been observed that the layup sequence has a significant effect on the impact resistance of the laminates under hemispherical impactor. In the case of conical impactor, both the laminates were perforated while absorbing similar energy levels. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
