Composite structures may be subjected to high loading rates in naval applications.Hence, the composite assembly’s dynamic behaviour needs investigation. This paperpresents an investigation on the structural rate dependent behaviour of adhesivelybounded double lap joints. High rate tests showed ringing in the force/displacementcurves. An attempt was made to determine the origins of this phenomenon.
