Numerical simulations were performed on the damage behavior of carbon-fiber-wrapped composite cylinder subjected to impact by a flat-ended impactor. The simulation results were in agreement with the test in terms of both the damage morphology of the cylinder and the impact acceleration-time curve of the impactor. The relationship between the impact acceleration-time curve characteristics and the initiation and propagation process of the various damages was analyzed. The effects of the internal pressure on the damage morphology of the cylinder, the impact acceleration-time curve of the impactor, and the critical perforation energy of the cylinder wall were discussed. Change law of the residual burst pressure of the cylinder with different impact energies was obtained. The conclusions in this paper are helpful for the safety assessment of the composite cylinders subjected to impact by foreign objects.
