In this paper, the influence of nanoclay Closite 30B on ballistic impact behavior of 2D woven E- Glass/Epoxy laminated composite has been investigated Theoretical and experimentally. The structure of the hybrid nanocomposite is glass/epoxy/nanoclay laminate and is manufactured by hand layup method under pressure. The nanoclay is dispersed into the epoxy system in a 0%, 3%, 5%, 7% and 7% ratio in weight with respect to the matrix. Comparison of theoretical results and results of the ballistic impact test are shown a good correlation. The results have shown that optimal to increase in energy absorption is 10% in 3% nanoclay content. Howevere, in the impact velocities far than ballistic impact, maximum increasing in energy absorption is 20% in 10% nanoclay content.
