This study is about the shock response of Continuous Filament Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Composite (CFTC) plates subjected to blast loads. CFTC plates were produced as layered structures with different configurations by using parameters such as the orientation angles, the number of layers, and fiber volume fractions. CFTC plates were subjected to shock pressure wave in the shock tube setup. Glass fibers and Carbon fibers in continuous filament forms were used as reinforcing materials. Polypropylene thermoplastic polymer was chosen as a matrix material. Deformations and damage patterns of composite panels were concluded comparatively by using post mortem pictures.
