THIOT INGENIERIE’s testing laboratory
Our company has its very own Shock Physics laboratory, the world’s first private establishment in this cutting-edge sector. We perform impact, material characterization and certification tests for our clients (in the defence, aeronautics, aerospace and civil engineering sectors, etc.) and we also participate in major research programmes. Our strengths? We provide a comprehensive service to cover your shock-physics requirements. We combine physical laboratory tests with our expertise in numerical simulation to help you gain a better understanding of your materials and optimize your products.
The tests that we conduct in the laboratory allow us to observe impact phenomena by the nanosecond and measure movements in the order of a micrometre. This is all made possible due to our state-of-the-art instrumentation, which allows us to study materials down to their very core during the short duration of an impact.
