Expertise in Mechanics of Composite Materials and Environment

    1. Innovative Materials and Composite Structures theme

    • Vibro-acoustics of composite materials
    • Acoustics in guided environments: Calculation and measurement of TL and mouth noise, innovative concept of acoustic devices, impedance measurement, engine acoustics
    • Acoustic imaging: Intensimetry, beamforming , near field holography
    • Measurement of acoustic impedance in flat waves: Kundt tube
    • Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
    • Study on the behaviour of composite materials, structures and associated assemblies under dynamic rapid stresses (impact, crash), great distortion and fatigue
    • Investigation of damage and rupture mechanisms via optical methodologies and non-destructive tests
    • Fatigue behaviour of composite materials and structures.
    • Rapid dynamic coupling – fatigue
    • Mechanical characterisation under controlled environment (temperature, relative humidity)

    2. Analysis and Reduction of Polluting Emissions theme

    • Physics of aerosols
    • Study of particulate deposit processes coming into play in the de-pollution of gas/particle mixtures
    • The study on coupling between flow turbulent flows and the spatial-temporal movements of particulate pollutants, and transfer to walls
    • CFD in multi-phase flow
    • Granulometry
