Abstract: In today’s world, Armor Industries are striving for the better safe body vests, having high impact energy absorbing capacity. Advanced tools like Ansys may be used for improving the vest efficiency and hence controlling the bullet. This review attempts to discuss various types of work wear (in particular Bullet proof vests)in relation to the properties of the manmade fibres and polymers from which these types of vests are made and to identify the best one based on directional deformation, total deformation, shear stresses and principal stresses, when it is subjected to a bullet impact.

Keywords: Ansys, Von Mises Stress, Deformation, Bullet proof materials, vest.
