The aim of this work is to perceive if the outcome from a ballistic impact can be predicted beforehand with the help of material testing and finite element simulations. Use of refined numerical simulation are gaining more importance especially in extreme load cases. A numerical investigation of the ballistic performance of monolithic, double layered metallic plates made of either steel or aluminium or combinations ,were impacted by a 7.62-mm APM2 projectile at a velocity of 820m/s. The numerical models were developed using the explicit finite element code LSDYNA®.The effect of different metallic parts- thickness on the residual velocity of APM2 projectiles is examined. Three configurations of plate arrangements with different total thicknesses were used. Both aluminium target and projectile have been modelled as deformable bodies with Modified Johnson-Cook material model based on input parameters from literature[1].The predicted values of residual velocities were compared with the literature and a good correlation was found between the two.
