Abstract:

The article presents the results of preliminary work carried out for flexible body armour systems designs which contained three types of magnetorheological fluid (MRFs). The stab resistance of the multilayered material systems with magnetorheological fluids were investigated. Tests were carried out on a newly built rig at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology. Three different configurations of flexible body armour were made. It was found that samples of the multilayered material system containing MRF had lower depth of deformation by about 30% than the reference samples. The combination of MRFs with para-aramid woven fabrics in several usable forms and/or sheets of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibres gives possibilities for obtaining new types of multi-layered systems protecting effectively against various kind of threats.
