We Will Shock You
Shocks and fast dynamics events are everywhere. For a better understanding of these events and their consequences on our environment, we provide impact tests and shock physics expertise in a unique 2 500 m ² facility.
With 25 years of experience in shocks, we support you in developing more resistant products, from dynamic material characterization to impact certification tests.
We contribute to enhance industrial security by supporting architects to design more blast resistant building and perform numerical simulation to help you find solutions for your existing infrastructures.
If you are involved in making planes safer, building military equipment stronger or want to understand how a satellite reacts to a 50 000 km/h impact, then we can work together.
We are the right dynamic and experienced partner for vulnerability studies, dynamic material characterization, impact tests campaigns or even fast dynamics numerical simulation.
We are THIOT INGENIERIE, We Will Shock You.
Why Chose Us?
We collaborated with most prestigious world’s reasearch centers and private companies arround the world such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Centre d’Etudes de Gramat, Moscow University and much more.
Equipped to cover a wide range of strain-rates, we are also capable to launch anything that fits our 350 mm diameter barrel with 1,5% repeatibility. Flash X-Ray, very high speed cameras, 1 Gs/sec acquisition or laser surface velocimeter, you won’t miss any detail.
Thanks to our light structure, we can easily adapt our procedures to your requirements or change shots parameters during a tests campaign. Because our customers’ satisfaction comes first… always!
We Support You
Shock Physics Expertise
Vulnerability assessment or need to know more about materials resistance to shocks? Our experts perform shock physics studies, and characterize materials at high strain rates.
Our lab team will proceed to any kind of impact test from 10 m/s to 7 km/s. Do you want to get a souvenir, we can record it with a 200 Mio fps very high-speed camera.
