Above some critical velocity the contact load is such that the yarns fail and only a small © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2012 Key issues in body armour: threats, materials and design 9 amount of energy is extracted from the projectile. But the projectile is progressively decelerated and the ensuing layers accelerated until yarn failure does not occur. Assuming the yarns do not immediately fail, a tensile wave propagates along the yarns away from the impact point, and in this way some energy is absorbed from the projectile.

In effect this marks a transition from a net-like behaviour to a penetration and absorption behaviour.
