Table A, Low-velocity impact properties of the samples at dry condition.

Table B,Low-velocity impact properties of the samples at water-immersed condition.

Fig. A, Tensile test results of PCL matrix (AR-0) and hemp/PCL biocomposites samples for (a) dry and (b) wet conditions, showing the effect of hemp fiber aspect ratios on tensile properties of the FRP samples.

Fig. B,Flexural behavior of PCL matrix (AR-0) and hemp/PCL biocomposites for (a) dry (b) wet conditions during 3-point bending test.

Fig. C, Visual images of different samples after impact testing, showing front and rear faces at (a) dry and (b) water-immersed conditions, greater damage response at dry condition and less radial and circumferential fractures as the aspect ratio increases.
