This new book, Protective Armor Engineering Design, provides an in-depth survey of the state of the art of research and practical techniques in the area of protected fabrics, especially stab-resistant and bulletproof fabrics. There is increasing interest in the area of protective vests, either for protection against bullets or protection from the most realistic threats within domestic frontline operations: edged weapon, knives, and medical needles, and this volume addresses that interest.

Written by an expert in textile composite material engineering, this volume fills an important gap the area of the protective fabric against stabbing or bullets and provides practical knowledge for body armor design. Protective Armor Engineering Design will be highly valuable for designers of protective armor, professionals in the body armor industries, materials science researchers and students, textile technologists, and others.
