In this laboratory theoretical and experimental investigations of protective clothing are carried out. The main objects of research are body armor and smart garments. Computational modeling of ballistic impact and heat transfer processes is developed, micro- and macro- level computational models of finite elements of textile structures are created to determine functional properties of body armor and other protective garments. The models of protective clothing are designed and their functional and ergonomic properties are investigated. Smart textile products are created using new materials, wearable electronics and IT systems.
