To ensure the dynamic strength of modern constructions, protective elements are used. Studies have shown that even with the use of double-layer elements from similar materials, multilayer elements have enhanced protective properties with a smaller overall thickness compared to single-layer elements. Even greater effect is achieved when using layers of different materials. These features are widely used in the creation of linings to strengthen the bodies of gas turbine engines when exposed to fragments of blades and foreign objects. Numerical studies of the stress-strain state of three-layer element from two thin layers of a titanium alloy and an average ceramic layer under the influence of projectile with different velocities are carried out. The top layer of the titanium alloy perceives the main local load and plastic deformations occur up to the formation of the crater. In the average ceramic layer, the extensive deformations develop, during which the basic energy of impact is absorbed. The third layer limits the velocity of deformation and increases the protective properties of the element. Thus, it is shown that the multilayer elements can have improved protective properties with a general reduction of the weight of structure.
