As a result, the CAI's of the toughened composite could be described as a rather simplistic function of impact energy, In addition, to exclude possible effects of inaccuracy in impact energy delivered by different impactor, the CAI's of the toughened composite could be conveniently correlated to the damage area, with the CAI's exhibiting a monotonous decrease with the linear dimension of the damage areas.
