A review of the literature on high-velocity impact calculations is presented, with emphasis on laminated composition plates. This review indicates that extensive work has been done in the last two decades in the development of two- and three-dimensional computer programs for the analysis of high velocity impact. Much of the current computational research is focussed on a realistic modeling of impact phenomena, especially material modeling and failure. A summary of results of the geometrically nonlinear transient analysis of layered anisotropic composite plates is presented.
