Domain of digital mechanics and digital process modelling.

Development of digital methods to find solutions for problems from digital simulation of material forming.

Key competences : - Development of process simulation software - Generation and adaption of anisotropic cross-linking - Calculation of free surfaces, interfaces or multi domains and mobile domains - Optimization - Object oriented programming - Stabilization of finite element methods


The research activities at Cemef cover all types of materials (metal, polymers, composites, glass and materials for food production industry ...).


The group develops and maintains tools and software components for various applications: adaptive separating and linking machine, partitioning of mesh, optimizer, CimLib : a C++ object library_

Parallel and sequential calculation capacities with about 10 parallel calculators with different architectures including one new cluster with 500 processors installed in 2008.
