Abstract null null A comprehensive study on the impact behaviour of UHMWPE woven fabrics is presented in this paper, which consists of four parts: geometric measurement of fabric parameters, tensile testing of constituent yarns, impact testing of fabrics, and numerical modelling of fabrics subjected to impact loading. Two fabric materials, i.e. a plain weave fabric made of Spectra® 1000 fibres and a 4-harness satin weave fabric made of Dyneema® SK75 fibres, were examined. Firstly, the geometric ...

Abstract Stiffened panel is a common application of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) laminates in engineering industries, particularly those in mechanical and aerospace domains. However, laminated structures such as stiffened FRP panels are sensitive to impact and frequently suffer from invisible inter-laminar defects, for instance, in the bonding interface between the stiffener and the skin plate, which results in a considerable reduction of structural load capability and service lifetime. In thi...

Abstract This paper presents a combined experimental and numerical study on the low-velocity impact behavior of honeycomb-core sandwich panels with different structural parameters, including facesheet thickness, core height, honeycomb cell size, and cell wall thickness. Impact tests were conducted at four different energies using a drop-weight impact facility, and the deformation and damage characteristics of the tested sandwich panels were analyzed by microscopic X-ray computed tomography. The ...

Abstract A pre-stressing technique for improving the ballistic performance of a circular silicon carbide tile has been tested against o12-mm spherical steel projectile. The confining pre-stress was achieved through a heat-shrunk steel collar and was evaluated through neutron diffraction for the ceramic-collar system. Subsequent ballistic experiments and simulations of the impact event were used to elucidate the mechanisms and benefits of pre-stress on the ballistic response. CT-scans of various ...

Abstract Nature has a wide range of biological protection strategies that show resilience to impact loading. These strategies also serve certain amount of flexibility that contribute to body movement and locomotion. Consequently, researchers have developed biomimetic engineering structures emulating natural strategies. However, biological entities are often complex and are difficult to replicate with conventional manufacturing technologies. Recent advances in additive manufacturing provide a pat...

Abstract This paper reports on the results of an experimental study on glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) pultruded profiles subjected to low-velocity impact loading. The effects of impactor mass on the impact response of pultruded composites were investigated. Composite specimens were tested under two series of loading conditions using a drop-weight impact facility. The first set of tests was conducted with different impactor masses (i.e. 5.5, 10.5, 15.5 and 20.5 kg) under the same impact en...

Abstract Woven wire mesh is a metallic fabric outperforming traditional metal sheets in air circulation, weight saving, impact resistance, etc. In this study, the dynamic mechanical response of steel wire mesh subjected to low-velocity impact loading was investigated using both experimental and numerical methods. An instrumented drop-weight impact facility was used for experimental impact tests, with the effects of clamping wire direction, impact energy, impactor’s mass and size being considered...
