A review of the high strain rate behavior of filamentary composite materials is presented. The experimental techniques used for evaluating the dynamic performance of composites are discussed, as well as results obtained by researchers for various types of filamentary composites. Areas of research needed for expanding the information base for composites as well as the testing devices needed to obtain composite test data are chronicled. This review article contains 120 references.
