The objective of this study is to develop fiber metal laminates (FMLs) that offer better blast and ballistic properties. In short, the study will involve the preparation of cost effective and light weighted probable materials data bank of constituents of FML composite suitable for blast and ballistic applications.
- Finite element modelling and simulation of one of FML composite selected from material data bank for blast and ballistic loading and its validation
- Understand the fabrication of test coupons, identification of test methodology of cost effective, lightweight FMLs composite for blast and ballistic applications
- Clearly identify the advantages of using fiber metal laminate composites over conventional materials in terms of cost and weight
