Paper Title:
Studies on the Low-Velocity Impact Response of Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Laminated Composites
  Abstract

The low-velocity impact response of Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) laminated composites were studied by drop-weight experiments. Laminated composites were fabricated with unidirectional UHMWPE prepreg using hot-pressing process. Laminated composites of size 150mm×100mm were subjected to low-velocity impact loading at three energy levels of 15J, 25J and 35J. It is found that the slops of load-time and energy-time curves increase with increase in the impact energy. However, load-time curve shows that there are some fluctuations before the peak load was reached. Peak load and absorbed energy increase with increasing impact energy. However, time to peak load decreases linearly with increasing impact energy.
