This paper focuses on validating a numerical modelling of woven materials subjected to ballistic impact based on experimental data. Studied impact system is a 3D warp interlock fabric (4 layers of angle interlock – through the thickness) and FSP projectile (Fragment Simulating Projectile). Numerical prediction is compared with ballistic tests on data obtained from ultra-rapid camera in two typical impact cases: no perforation and perforation. Effect of deformation rate is investigated by using both mechanical properties of yarn in static and dynamic states for numerical modelling. The numerical model using dynamic parameters shows a better prediction of impact behaviour of the 3D woven fabric than the one using static parameters.
