This paper presents a macro FEM isothermal model for simulating the impact of a 9 mm FMJ bullet on a stratified packs in order to restrain the preliminary tests for actual stratified packs made of layers of Twaron LFT SB1plus (Teijin), taking into account the friction between layers and between bullet and layers, in order to obtain the number of layers that arrest the bullet. The layers were considered as an orthotropic material, with maximum equivalent plastic strain of 0.06. The materials are modeled as bilinear isotropic with hardening. The analyzed parameter to validate the model was the number of broken layers. The average value of back face signature for a 12 layer pack was of 19.44 mm recommending it for protection level of II and IIA (NIJ Standard-0101.06-2008).
