Abstract
The manuscript focuses on investigation of various composite materials used to make bulletproof vests, thereafter to analyze their effectiveness and to identify the optimum material based on directional deformation, total deformation, shear stresses and principal stresses by using ANSYS. When a bullet strikes body armor, it is caught in a web of a very strong fiber. These fibers absorb and disperse the impact energy that is transmitted to the vest from the bullet causing the bullet to deform or mushroom. Additional energy is absorbed by each successive layer of the material in the vest, until such time as the bullet has been stopped. The fiber helps the bullet from penetrating into the body by distributing bullet’s force uniformly. Hence after comparison of different properties of the fibers, a bulletproof vest would be designed using Ansys software. These vests will be tested for penetration and hence its effectiveness would be determined.
