Conference / September 15, 2022 - September 16, 2022
Scope of the workshop
LWAG is intended for all parties (industry, academia and research institutes) involved in the field of light-weight armour for defense 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.
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.
The meeting will take place at the Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics, Ernst-Mach-Institut, EMI. EMI is one of the leading research institutions focusing on dynamic processes in materials and structures. The institute features facilities for ballistic experiments and dynamic testing across several length- and time-scales as well as a comprehensive additive manufacturing laboratory.
