At THIOT INGENIERIE, we know that it is essential to combine laboratory testing with numerical simulation, both to gain a good understanding of how materials behave when subjected to shocks and to obtain reliable and realistic numerical simulation results.
How does ceramic armour behave when hit by a bullet? What should the security perimeter be for demilitarisation operations? How well can an armoured door stand up to an explosion? Numerical simulation of fast phenomena—impact, blast, and crash phenomena—makes it possible to appropriately determine material behaviour laws without the need for long test campaigns, assess the vulnerability of materials and structures, and extrapolate the results of laboratory tests to full-scale phenomena. We put our expertise in shock physics and numerical simulation at the service of a great number of manufacturers, scientific organisations and collaborative research programmes.
