STRUCTURAL AND MATERIALS MECHANICS

This work involves the behaviour of composite structures applied to different industrial segments. Our research aims to develop new solutions in the area of architecture as well as in the perfection of processes for the design, dimensioning and manufacture of parts and subassemblies.

In the design phase, this may involve, for instance, integration of the anisotropy characteristic of the composite into the design rules in order to optimise solutions. During the calculations, the challenge lies in developing models that factor in the characteristics of the composites and the richness of the possible solutions (new resin, new thickness range, new fibre orientations).

  • Digital simulation
  • Laboratory testing
  • Analytic formulation
  • Materials characterisation
  • Systems (signal processing, IT, automation)

Once the modelling has been established, we have a corpus of data capable of indexing and predicting the behaviours of composite materials.

    Industrial glueing: towards reinforced confidence
    Although invisible to the naked eye, adhesives are present in numerous assembled structures (both monolithic and stratified) used in the aeronautics, automotive, railway or even construction sectors.
  • Composite impact study
    Screening the composites
    Numerous technologies have been developed in order to enhance security, performance and the cost of the latest generation of airplanes. In the area of structure, a new family of composite materials has been developed, called CFRP (Carbon-Fibre-Reinforced Plastics).
