Abstract: Ballistic qualities of the material are important for the military defence barrier application for protection of military persons, their vehicles and equipment. In the present investigation ballistic performance of Kevlar29 fibre reinforced polyester composite (KPC) is analysed. A definite parametric study, taking into account various shape of projectiles (Flat-F, Spherical-S and Conical-C) impact on the composite target of different thicknesses (12, 16 and 20 mm). Impact velocity of the projectile considered for analysis 100-400 m / s. Ballistic parameters such as residual velocity, deformation and penetration behaviour are predicted. Conical projectile has more effect on the composite target compared to other projectile. Composite thickness influenced the energy absorption. The thickness increase from 12 mm to 20 mm which leads to increase in the energy absorption by almost 20%. � 2019 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
