An experimental investigation was undertaken in order to study the behaviour of laminated fabric and steel plates when subjected to impulsive load and fragment impact. Fully clamped rectangular plates were loaded by the blast wave generated due to explosion of TNT charges and by a steel fragment accelerated by the explosion products. The velocities of steel fragments and blast wave impulses were estimated experimentally and theoretically.
