Shock From A to Z
THIOT INGENIERIE offers a 2 500 m² facility fully dedicated to shocks, blasts and their effects on our materials and structures.
With our gas guns, we will test or certificate your products in accordance with European or American standards. As long as a projectile fits our 350 mm barrel, we will launch it.
We also have a unique dynamic press which can charge 200 T in 3 ms ! With its 1 m² capacity, it’s perfect for heterogeneous materials such as concrete, rocks, foams and much more. It can reproduce loading and stress produced during a blast or a crash with an amazing reproductibility and of course, all our measurement means can be adapated on it.
For certification or product development purposes, we will support you to set the quality of your product to a next level.

Our Shock Laboratory
Why Chose Us?
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!
What We Do For You
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. For aerospace, defense or global security applications, we perform dynamic material characterization and certification tests.
Our powerful dynamic press can charge 200 T in 3 ms. Ideal for dynamic tensile and compression tests, we can also set it to reproduce blast effects. Equiped with a wide range of dynamic load cells and laser velocimeters we determine dynamic properties for all materials.
