Abstract

This work aims to investigate the effect of pre-existing in-plane shear on the ballistic performance of plates made from Dyneema® HB26. This contribution focuses on
experimental characterisation. Specific parameters that are investigated include the degree of shear and fibre orientation, representing the location of impact on a formed hemispherical surface. Details of the manufacturing process of these plates are presented here.
