APPLIED MECHANICS Department Research Teams

"Micromechanics: materials and processes"

2PC : Polymères et polymères chargés en Micro et Nano-Particules
  (Polymers and Polymeric Micro- and Nanoparticles)

The objective of our 2PC team is to master materials and the processes of shaping and fabrication, including their interactions, for the production of functional components at a high level of added value.

PMMCM : Propriétés Mécaniques des Matériaux en Couches Minces
  (Mechanical Properties of Thin-Film Materials)

Our PMMCM team targets the comprehension and modeling of the principal mechanical phenomena at stake in thin films to allow the sizing of varied mechanical devices using thin films (typ. <100 μm), and the development of micrometric devices that make the most of scale effects.

TFCS : Tribologie, Fonctionnalisation & Caractérisation des Surfaces
Tribology, Functionalization and Characterization of Surfaces)
On the TFCS team we target a better understanding of interfacial phenomena, when two sliding solids are in contact, in order to provide new and innovative solutions for real problems and thus better control of friction.

PM2 : Procédés et Mécanique des Matériaux (Processes and Mechanics of Materials)
The objective of our PM2 team is to develop research on the modeling and characterization of materials for and by fabrication processes.

D-SMART : Structures et Matériaux ARchitecturés pour la vibroacousTique
Dynamics of Architectured Structures and Materials for Vibro-acoustics)
The objective of our D-SMART team is to develop research on the use of architecturing strategies (periodicity and gradients, but also liaisons and junctions) for the production of vibroacoustic control and the use of materials with thermo- (or even electro-) mechanical couplings in order to pilot their behavior.

› MEMS : MEMS Acoustique et Énergie (MEMS, Acoustics and Energy)
- Modeling and optimization of energy conversion mechanisms with MEMS interfaces;
- Implementation and reliability of processes of microfabrication in the production of prototypes;
- Electromechanical characterization of MEMS produced internally on a specific experimental platform developed for each theme.
