ENSTA Bretagne : Modélisation Aéronautique

Advanced Modeling of Materials and Structures

STUDYING NEW, MORE DURABLE, RESISTANT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY MATERIALS WITH NOVEL PROPERTIES.
ENSTA Bretagne : Modélisation

Many sectors are following the trend of using new materials.

In order to make use of composites or light alloys, it is necessary to understand both their behavior and their interaction with the structures in which they are used. This understanding is also useful to materials manufacturers and can impact manufacturing processes.

The Advanced Modeling of Materials and Structures program offers students a fascinating field of study and research drawing on the work of teams at Institut de Recherche Dupuy-de-Lôme (IRDL), whose applied research is carried out in close collaboration with large industrial firms.
 

Program strengths

A multiplicity of applications

Steel, composites and elastomers have diverse applications in the automotive, medical, naval, aerospace, defense, construction and clothing industries.

Gaining an understanding of their structure, behavior (especially during forming and annealing), aging process and reaction to damage is a necessary first step before their utilization.

Cutting-edge applied research

ENSTA Bretagne's Mechanical Science department research professors working in the IRDL lab have developed high-speed characterization techniques for fatigue properties in materials, assemblies and structures. These techniques have been validated by multiscale experimentation and allow manufacturing partners to predict and efficiently verify the lifespan of mechanical systems.

Continuous innovation

ENSTA Bretagne contributes to numerous innovative projects such as FASTLITE. Financed by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency's Investments for the Future program, this project focuses on the use of lighter materials in the automotive industry. ENSTA Bretagne contributed to the characterization and modeling of assembly strength.

Extensive experimental facilities

The ENSTA Bretagne campus comprises 1,200 m2 of experimental facilities where various types of materials, structures and assemblies can be characterized on a wide range of scales. The MASMECA technology platform is constantly growing.

L’Institut de Recherche Dupuy de Lôme (IRDL, UMR CNRS 6027)

Les recherches sur les matériaux et structures sont au cœur du projet scientifique de l’IRDL, qui réunit le CNRS et les équipes de sciences mécaniques de 4 campus bretons. Des entreprises industrielles de toute la France et de nombreux domaines d’activités s’appuient sur les compétences et connaissances du laboratoire et de l’ENSTA Bretagne pour mener à bien leurs projets de R&D.

Thématiques de recherche
  • Comportement & durabilité des matériaux
  • assemblages multi-matériaux
MASMECA : Plate-forme technologique

Composée de 5 plateaux techniques, MASMECA concentre de nombreux moyens d’essais  en caractérisation dynamique,  thermo-mécanique et physico-chimique.
