Expertise fields – Competences

 

They are built on three main foundations.

 

The first one is modeling : we are developing numerical and stochastic modelling and also multiscale approaches.

Second pilar focuses on experimental characterization : our main originality is to develop home-made and non-standard tools and tests with a strong emphasis on single fibre testing and multiscale fatigue testing of composite materials.

The last pilar, that was developed more recently, aims at implementing multifunctionality in material and structures. It includes health monitoring based on acoustic emission, passive morphing and sustainability and recyclibality.

The common and global aim of all of our activities is to predict the lifetime of standard composites and biobased composites.
