New civil engineering tools and methods

Objectives

  • Contribute to the development of new methodologies specific to materials-related studies.
  • Participate in shaping recommendations at the national / European levels.

Research and experimental programmes

The research performed under this heading, conducted in collaboration with other Ifsttar units, spans two topic areas: improving current material analysis methods through the use of new tools, and proposing new methods concentrating on special degradation cases. The Division is also working on monitoring cement hydration and designing innovative structures.

Thanks to a wide array of physicochemical resources at its disposal, the Division is able to offer its skills within the framework of multidisciplinary research projects.

Anticipated applications

  • Definition of material characterisation methods.
  • Participation in both regulatory and certification review sessions.
  • Proposal of innovative solutions targeting the field of civil engineering.
