    Carbon fibre in polyphenylene sulfide composites (C/PPS) became a popular material in the aircraft industry but its fragility and low impact resistance limits its application in primary aircraft structures. This study is focused on damage propagation in the laminated composites reinforced with carbon fibres. The damage may be inflicted during the ground maintenance, by an inflight bird strike or during a flight in severe meteorological conditions (heavy storms). The initial damage was created by a drop-weight out-of-plane impact using a spherical indenter. The response of the material was analysed by monitoring the impacted zones and their propagation history. The influenced area and specimen thickness in the centres of indents were chosen as the degradation parameters. The post-impact damage propagation induced by cyclic loading was assessed using a custom-designed computer-controlled laser-profilometery device. Both the upper and lower profiles of the specimen were scanned during the interruptions of the fatigue test. Global deformation was described with an analytically determined centroidal-axis curve. Local topography changes were obtained with a subtraction of this curve. Surface-deformation maps were created and used for a demonstration of the damage propagation in the specimen.
