The accuracy of the lamination theory in transient wave propagation problems was studied. In-plane and shear-bending impact experiments were conducted with graphite epoxy angle-ply and cross-ply plates. The measured strain histories of these plates were compared with the theoretical predictions of the lamination theory. The results show that, under the given loading conditions, the lamination theory adequately predicts wave velocities and strains in symmetric angle-ply and cross-ply graphite epoxy plates.
