Abstract: This paper presents the response of ballistic grade UHMWPE (Dyneema HB- 50, HB- 26) fabric materials to Low Velocity Impact loading in which impact tests were performed with the help of vertical drop-weight testing machine. These ballistic grade fabrics were characterized by a stacking sequence in [0/90]s . In Experimental Results, impact parameters such as peak load, absorb energy force- energy- time history were evaluated and compared. Damage processes examined from the initiation of damage to final perforation.
