Abstract: Filament winded composite pipes are used in various environments conditions for different applications. In this study filament winded hybrid (Glass/Carbon/Epoxy) composite pipes with interwoven (CG90/CG60) orientation were tested under various low velocity impact conditions for two different thickness. Internal diameter as 50 mm with various thicknesses such as 4 mm, 6mm are used to study the effect of impact. The impact test conducted at three different energy levels as 20 J, 25 J and 30 J. Effect of impact on these pipes were measured by the comparison of energy absorption, force and deformation values. The results shows that increasing thickness of specimens increase maximum load carrying capacity and reduces the energy absorption and deformation of impacted specimens.
