In order to study the impact fracture behavior of brittle materials, a steel-ball-impact experiment was Performed. Five kinds of materials were used in this study : soda-lime glass plates, glass/epoxy prepreg-one layer-bonded and unbonded glass plates, glass/epoxy prepreg-three layers-bonded and unbonded glass plates. Fracture patterns, the maximum stress and absorbed fracture energy were observed according to various impact velocities 40-120m/s. With increasing impact velocity, ring crack, cone crack, radial crack and lateral crack took place in the interior of glass plates. The generation of such cracks was largely reduced with glass/epoxy prepreg coating. Consequently, it is thought that the characteristics of the dynamic Impact fracture behavior could be evaluated using the absorbed fracture energy and the maximum stress measured at the back surface of glass plates.
