Know-how


Analysis and development of efficient digital methods for the digital modelling by finite elements, analysis and optimization of linear and non-linear problems in solid mechanics with multi-physical couplings

Research axis : - Mechanical modelling by finite elements of damage and fissuration for creation of a virtual global chain of digital shaping simulations - Digital modelling, optimization and control of processes with electromagnetic couplings (continuous or alternative current) for heating and shaping applications - Reduction of calculation time, development of efficient multi grid methods, development of explicit methods for high speed process simulation - Biomechanical activity, mechanical comportment of living organs : hyper elastic comportment of soft tissue, elastic comportment of bones depending on bone density, implant and prosthesis modelling

Applications
