Deep storage of nuclear waste - Thermal study of underground structures
3D thermo-hydraulic modeling : assessment of water and steam pressures in the ground porous environment to value the flow, leakage and risks of hydraulic fracturing
Quality assessment of the 2D (axisymmetrical or plan) simulations results from a ground massif section and exothermic material storage site
Structural stability under fire
Columns made of Ductal® (high performance concrete) - MuCEM (Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée)
Behaviour of the reinforced concrete structures up to failure - Non linear time history thermal analysis - Concrete damage and steel yielding assessment due to the effects of temperature (Eurocode 2/1-2)
Fire study in a tunnel
Simplified 2D thermal analysis of a 3D geometry
Thermal behaviour of a tunnel exposed to fire. Parametric study of local excess of a critical temperature according to the fire properties, the materials and the locale configuration. Simplified 2D thermal analysis of a 3D geometry.
Design studies of vibration and slow strain sensitive structures
Golden Slab of the ESRF synchrotron - EX2 project (particle accelerator)
Design studies of test slabs. Preliminary assessment of the technical solutions for the foundations, monitoring of the structure behaviour during construction, and validation by in situ measures. Stability of the slab to thermal variations, concrete shrinkage, dynamic loads applied on the slabs. Organisation of data collection programs, and validation of numeric modelling.
