This could give rise to premature rupture of the fibre. However, local slip of hydrogen-bonded planes may serve to mitigate the effect of the presence of inhomogeneities. 4 31 Some useful comparisons between aromatic polyamides and copolyamides The levels of tensile properties and thermal stability of Technora® are comparable to highly crystalline para-aramid fibres over standard practical temperature ranges. Technora® has a comparatively high fatigue resistance, which may be the direct result of the flexibility of the copolymer chain and loose crystal structure in the copolymer; this was confirmed using wide-angle X-ray studies [3].

For instance, as noted by Dobb and McIntyre [68], the tensile modulus of a fibre will be largely determined by the details of the molecular orientation about the fibre axis, and the effective cross-sectional area occupied by single chains, which will, of course, be related to the degree of chain linearity. For instance in poly(p-phenylene terephthalamide) the polymer chains are very stiff, which is brought about by bonding of rigid phenylene rings in the para position. In contrast for Nomex® fibres, the phenylene and amide units are linked in the meta position, which result in an irregular chain conformation and a correspondingly lower tensile modulus.

The absorption of the kinetic energy of the projectile is related to the wave propagation, transversely and longitudinally, and the penetration stressestrain profile which largely depends on the frictional energy dissipation and matter deformation and motion therewith. Although there exist separate basic concepts and approaches for fibre and textile fabrics, and their interpretation in the case of embedded textile and/or fibres, it is generally admitted that the crossover tightness for the textile, the delaminating effect obtainable by adhesion tailoring in the composite armour, and the looseness of the yarn ends at the boundaries are key elements in terms of the wave propagation both longitudinally and transversely.
