Abstract: This paper investigates a new type of cellular textile composites for energy absorption. Thermoplastic knitted composites were fabricated with different fabrication methods. Their energy absorption capacities were studied by conducting the quasi-static compression and impact test on the grid dome composite samples of different preforms. The materials selected for the experiments include polyethylene terephthalate (PET) as the fabric material and polypropylene (PP) as the matrix material. Various cellular composites have been produced from PET/PP co-knitted fabrics, pure PET fabric covered by pure PP films and pure PET fabrics with plasma surface treatment covered by pure PP films. The weight ratio between the fabric and the matrix was set to at a constant ratio of 1.6 : 1. The grid-dome thermoplastic composites exhibit many advantageous features such as constant reactive force, a large stroke of deformation, stable deformation mode and possess high specific energy absorption capacity.
