Abstract

This paper presents a review on the status of micromechanical and engineering modeling of polymeric matrix composites under shock and impact loading conditions. The various stages of projectile penetration mechanisms, damage mechanisms, and modeling approaches are briefly reviewed. In the modeling efforts, an outline of the various relationships developed for individual damage mechanisms followed by phenomenological constitutive relations used in modeling the penetration process is presented.
