|Summary||The impact energy absorption characteristics of glass epoxy composites and glass polyester composites with respect to fiber volume fraction were investigated by the instrumented Charpy impact test method. Also, the glass polyester composites both with and without silane treatment were tested. The interlaminar shear properties were measured by the short beam shear test to investigate the correlation between the interlaminar shear properties and the impact energy absorption characteristics. Additionally, the glass epoxy hybrid composites embedded with glass fibers without silane treatment were tested. From the tests, the optimum fiber volume fraction for impact energy absorption was obtained and the progressive impact fracture model was proposed to predict the impact absorption characteristics of composites.
