The primary objective of this study was to establish the interaction of fiber and non-woven fiber felt properties to projectile resistance or impact. For the purpose of this work, the non-woven structures were needled synthetic fiber felts with slight modifications in special instances. Projectile penetration refers to a ballistic technique used by the U. S. Army for the acceptance testing of armor vests and frequently called a V-50 test.
