Quantitative fractography From roughness to toughness

Laurent Ponson and Stéphane Vernède, co-founders of Tortoise, have invented a method that deciphers the morphology of new surfaces formed by the failure of a material. The method is applicable from a small fragment (typically 1mm3) of any material.

Tortoise develops technologies for the application of the patented method in the fields of material characterization, predictive maintenance and failure analysis
