If you have a question about this talk, please contact Stephen Walley.

Composites manufactured from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene are used extensively for ballistic protection. However, the mechanisms that allow these materials to perform so well are little understood. This talk outlines some of the key physics that have been uncovered through recent work conducted at the Engineering Department, Cambridge.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
