This paper presents an experimental investigation concerning low-velocity impact and quasi-static indentation tests on highly oriented laminates used in aeronautical and aerospace applications. The damage observed in such laminates is very particular. Post mortem analysis were carried out which helped to define an impact damage scenario. Microscopic observations led to explain the mechanism of permanent indentation formation which is a fundamental point of damage tolerance justification. Equivalence between static and dynamic is also discussed.
