Low velocity impact on laminates reinforced with Polyethylene and Aramidic fibres

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The present study reports low velocity impact tests on composite laminate plates reinforced either with Kevlar 29 or Dyneema. The tests are produced using a Rosand Precision Impact tester. The experimental results obtained for Kevlar 29 are simulated numerically. The deflection history and the peak of the impact force are compared with experimental data and used to calibrate the numerical model.
