Experimental results are presented for the linear elastic dynamic response of periodically laminated composites. A shock tube-capacitive transducer technique is used to determine the rear surface velocity history of three laminated samples that have different lamination angles and are subjected to a step pressure loading. Viscosity effects are discussed, and comparisons are made with predictions based on previous theoretical work. Author-PL
