At THIOT INGENIERIE, we know that it is essential to combine laboratory testing with calculation, both to gain a good understanding of how materials behave when subjected to shocks and to obtain reliable 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? Impact, blast, and crash phenomena… Calculation of fast phenomena makes it possible to:
- appropriately model material behaviour laws without long test campaigns,
- assess the vulnerability of materials and structures,
- 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.
