Armours are used in many applications for ballistic protection. The most common performance requirement in armour design is to achieve the highest penetration resistance against threats at a minimum weight. Using multi-layered plate targets is one of the solutions to achieve the armour design requirement, while the weight of the target is not increased. In this work, the ABAQUS/Explicit finite element (FE) analysis code and experimental testing are used to investigate the penetration process of projectiles into different target configurations in order to investigate the different parameters affecting the penetration behaviour.
