The object of this study is an experimental analysis of the repair of a laminate composite damaged by central circular notch. The effects of the repair technique used, single or double patch, the nature of the patch and its stacking sequence, were highlighted. The main results show that the performance of the repair depends on several parameters, namely the nature of the patch and its stacking sequence, the technique repair used.
