Under repeated impact composite domes subjected 6 J energy, changes locally with increasing drop height. The action of the dynamic load generates reactions at the support and bending moments at points on the surface of the composite. The peak loads were noted to increase and stabilise about some mean value; and the 150mm diameter shell was more damage tolerant compared to the 200 mm diameter one.
