Abstract: In this study, the glass/epoxy composite laminate is layered with polyurethane foam/ polyurethane sheet and silicon carbide to analyse their response during high mass and low velocity impact. The silicon carbide is layered in two forms, one is as plate and the other is as inserts. The target materials are prepared in various combinations and the bonding of layers is done by using epoxy. Effectiveness of silicon carbide inserts and plates are compared in terms of their energy absorbing capacities. The numerical…
