Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper reports the ballistic penetration behavior of 2D basalt fiber plain woven composite (2DPWC). The residual velocity vs. strike velocity curve was recorded. The dissipated energy was also calculated for each strike velocity. Furthermore, the impact damage morphologies of the tested 2DPWC coupons were given to indicate the damage modes and the mechanisms of energy absorption.
