    A brief description of the progress on mechatronic multi-degree of freedom material testers developed at the US Naval Research Laboratory (US-NRL) is given to describe the enabling technology for acquiring data that encapsulate both the recoverable and the dissipative behaviors of various composite material systems under quasi-static multiaxial loading conditions. The notion of material equivalence is then explored from the perspective of the data-driven dissipative behavior of multiaxially tested composite laminates. Emphasis is given by considering the same ber within the same resins and vice versa. The e ect of di erent curing conditions is also examined. As a follow-up, an overview of a multiscale computational framework is also outlined for the purpose of introducing multiscale implications of how macro- scale behavior in terms of experimental data can yield information about the behavior of materials at lower length scales.
