LWAG 2024 conference

Light-Weight Armour
for Defence & Security

June 10-13, 2024

Rocamadour (France)

From June 10 to 13, 2024, Thiot Ingénierie is pleased to host the 17th edition of LWAG conference in Rocamadour (Lot, France)

What is LWAG ?

LWAG is intended for all parties (industry, academia and research institutes) involved in the field of light-weight armour for defence and security applications with the objective to help improve the design of armour systems exposed to ballistic and/or explosive threats.

LWAG is interested in all materials involved in armour configurations such as ceramics, metals, composite materials and woven materials, metal matrix composites (MMC), ceramic matrix composites (CMC), metallic foams and other porous materials.

Since 2001, the LWAG workshop aims at gathering engineers, researchers as well as PhD students developing experimental testing, theoretical works and numerical simulations at the material scale or the structural scale to improve the knowledge in this area.

Objectives and topics

Development of new solutions for protection and shock mitigation against ballistic impact and blast for soldier, vehicle, aircraft and naval platform.
The fields of interests can be:

  • New materials
  • Innovative concepts
  • Dynamic testing and modelling
  • Damage and failure mechanisms
