This paper reviews the topic of ballistic impact of dry woven fabric composites. It highlights previous work done in modeling the fabrics and the theory involved. Attention is also given to experimental testing, ballistic penetration resistence, projectile characteristics, and failure modes in yarns and fabric. Concepts to further enhance the ballistic penetration resistance of woven fabrics are discussed. This paper serves as an effective source of literature for those interested in conducting research into this topic. Altogether, 176 references have been cited to allow further investigation.
