To create protective elements, information is needed on the resistance of various combinations of metal, ceramic, and heterogeneous plates, including layered ones, both in contact and with spacing. In addition, an intensive process is underway to create complex materials such as cermet composites. In this work, for verification of the code, numerical calculations of the breakdown of both monolithic and layered steel barriers by a striker with an ogival nose are performed. A series of 2D and 3D calculations for modeling the processes of penetrating heterogeneous barriers has been performed. It is shown that the resistance of heterogeneous barriers to penetration by a rigid striker is approximately the same, whereas the impact of a deformable striker on heterogeneous barriers shows that the resistance of layered barriers is lower compared to a monolithic barrier, and spacing of layers reduces the resistance of the barrier.
