Model layered composites were made of polyester resin reinforced with layers of glass fibre and aramid fibre fabrics. The fabrics for the study were selected in a manner enabling the comparison of their ballistic resistance depending on the material type and density. Additionally, aluminium plates were used to produce the composites.The study examined the resistance of the model composites to 1.1 g fragment simulating projectile (FSP) penetration, their susceptibility to deformation caused by shock waves produced by pure TNT charges, and their resistance to the effects of detonation of model improvised explosive devices (IED) containing fragments in the form of bearing balls. The analysis and optimisation of the test results enabled the selection of a layer configuration combining the materials studied that has the lowest area density and that protects car bottom structures against perforation in the case of a detonation of a small improvised explosive device.
