In this study, the residual strength of CFRP filament winding pressure vessel after low velocity impact was evaluated quantitatively. After impact test, the pressure vessel was sectioned to produce 25 mm-wide ring specimen and the bursting pressure of this specimen was measured. A finite element model was also fabricated to investigate the deformation and stress distribution characteristics of the impacted CFRP vessel. The degradation of the residual strength along with the increase of impact energy was successfully measured and reviewed.
