Our domains of expertise are characterized by a strong multidisciplinarity between several branches of solid and fluid mechanics:
Most of these themes belong to the field of engineering sciences. To tackle the problems, a global approach is often necessary where theoretical modeling, numerical formulation and experiments are closely linked.
Some examples of current interdisciplinary studies are the following:
An important part of the experimental research carried out in the laboratory takes benefit of a large variety of high quality and dedicated equipment: electronic microscope, wind tunnel, laser scanning vibrometer, anechoic chamber, rotating table, …
Most of the research results can be applied to industrial problems, particularly in the transportation, energy and environment domains. Medicine and music are also potential fields of applications. Recent examples are:
UME defines and organises all Mechanics courses given at ENSTA ParisTech during the three-year term of the engineering studies. All faculty members of UME contribute to the teaching activities.
In addition, UME is a partner of several Masters in Mechanics in Paris area, through a joint agreement with other Institutes and Universities:
Particular consideration is given at UME for training young engineers and scientists through research. The laboratory hosts each year a number of trainees at both the Master and PhD levels.
