Abstract

This SBIR proposal is concerned with the development of design and analysis tools for the assessment of new protection systems against ballistic impact utilizing novel textile materials. The approach is to develop an integrated simulation facility that incorporates the latest physics-based models for textile-based materials into the state-of-the-art computational mechanics simulation engines for describing ballistic and dynamic impact scenarios. This computational tool will allow the study, analysis and quantitative assessment of the penetration-resistance performance of different fiber/layer/inclusion configurations under a wide range of penetration conditions and projectile characteristics.
