There are seven research teams at CEMEF. They are grouped around four scientific divisions. On this page, you will have a summary overview of their activities. You will also be able to access detailed presentations of each of the research teams.
Numerical Mechanics and Physics Division
COMPUTING AND FLUIDS * CFL
Leader : Elie Hachem
The CFL team aims to develop new numerical methods and new techniques with a wide range of applications.
Computational Solid Mechanics * CSM
Leader : Katia Mocellin
The CSM team develops numerical methods, mechanical models and methodologies applied to problems in solid mechanics.
Metal Alloys Division
Metallurgy, microSTRUCTURE, Rheology * MSR
Leader : Nathalie Bozzolo
The MSR team is working on the microstructure evolutions induced by the solid state thermomechanical shaping of metallic materials.
Metallurgy, Mechanics, Structures & Solidification * 2MS
Leader : Charles-André Gandin
It is of paramount importance to master the structure of materials for the control of properties under various mechanical, physical or chemical constraints.
Polymers and Composites Division
BIO-based polymers and composites * BIO
Leader : Tatiana Budtova
The BIO team uses its fundamental knowledge of biosourced polymers to develop new materials with new functionalities in various fields.
Physical mechanics of Industrial Polymers * MPI
Leader : Jean-Luc Bouvard
The MPI team develops theoretical and experimental means and methods at the interface between the mechanics and physics of polymers.
Surfaces and Processes Division
Surfaces and Processes * PSP
Leader : Pierre Montmitonnet
The PSP team analyzes the microscopic mechanisms of interaction of a surface (or interface) with its environment to improve the properties of a system (optimization of surface materials, surface treatment, coating, lubrication).
