Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the numerical modelling of structures by breaking them down into a discrete number of ‘elements’. Elements share nodes and at these nodes physical fields such as displacement are calculated. The model is then resolved for a vector of displacements, and from this the effect of loading on the structure can be obtained.

FEA is a computer-based numerical-analysis technique which involves breaking down large, complex structures (‘models’) into a mesh of discrete elements. The elements are connected to each other, at points called ‘nodes’, creating a continuous surface. The model is ascribed some material properties; it is restrained (to allow the forces to act in a physically realistic manner); a loading scenario is applied; and the FEA software generates sets of equations according to the shape of the elements and material properties.

Ballistic Armour is a generic term for a protective layer of material that protects a person or object from projectiles. The common requirement of all systems is to dissipate the projectile energy with minimal damage to the target. This requirement for energy dissipation is where multi-layer composites can provide some advantages.
