In this paper, loading and loading-unloading tests of carbon fiber reinforced aluminum laminates (CRALL) have been carried out in a tensile impact apparatus, and quasi-static tensile tests have been performed on a MTS-810 machine. Complete stress-strain curves of composite in the strain rate range from 0.001–1200 1/s have been obtained. Experimental results show that CRALL composite is a strain rate sensitivity material, the tensile strength and failure strain both increased with increasing strain rate. A linear strain hardening model has been combined with Weibull distribution function to establish a constitutive equation for CRALL. The simulated stress-strain curves from model are in good agreement with the test data. The analysis of the model shows that the Weibull scale parameter, σ0 , increased with increasing strain rate, but Weibull shape parameter, β, can be regarded as a constant.
