Development of Composite Structures for Ballistic Protection

Abstract:

Article Preview

The mechanical behaviour and ballistic performance of carbon, glass (E and S type), aramide and polyethylene fabric reinforced composites with different epoxy resins were studied. The specimens −produced by hand lay-up method− were qualified by low velocity (Charpy and drop weight tests) and high velocity (two different bores ballistic) impact tests. The energy absorption capacity of the composites were found to be strongly affected by material properties of reinforcing fibre, type of fabric structure and elasticity of resin.
