Pr. François BOUSSU, Pr Damien SOULAT  and Pr. Pascal BRUNIAUX are very pleased to welcome you on this new edition 2019 of the LWAG - October 8 - 9, 2019 - in Roubaix, France



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

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



  • Protection against ballistic impact and blast for soldier, vehicle, aircraft and naval platforms
  • New materials for ballistic protections and blast attenuation
  • Dynamic testing and modelling of materials under ballistic impact or blast
  • Damage and failure mechanisms under impact or blast
