Academic researchers who are working on the development of composite materials for ballistic protection need a deeper understanding on the theory of material behavior during ballistic impact. Those working in industry also need to select proper composite constituents, to achieve their desired characteristics to make functional products. Composite Solutions for Ballistics covers the different aspects of ballistic protection, its different levels and the materials and structures used for this purpose.

The emphasis in the book is on the application and use of composite materials for ballistic protection. The chapters provide detailed information on the various types of impact events and the complexity of materials to respond to those events. The characteristics of ballistic composites and modelling and simulation results will enable the reader to better understand impact mechanisms according to the theory of dynamic material behavior. A complete description of testing conditions is also given that includes sensors and high-speed devices to monitor ballistic events. The book includes detailed approaches and schemes that can be implemented in academic research into solutions for ballistic protection in both theoretical and experimental fields, to find solutions for existing and next generation threats. The book will be an essential reference resource for materials scientists and engineers, and academic and industrial researchers working in composite materials and textiles for ballistic protection, as well as postgraduate students on materials science, textiles and mechanical engineering courses.
