IMAC – Suite à la retraite du Prof. Ian Smith, ce laboratoire a fermé le 30 novembre 2020

Informatique et mécanique appliquées à la construction

Project description here


The main areas of research and group leaders are

  • Structural Dynamics (Dr P. Lestuzzi)
  • Applied computing (Prof. I. Smith)
  • Active structures (Prof. I. Smith)

There are no rigid boundaries between groups; they signify only centres of competence. Several existing projects already include methods and techniques of more than one group. Many other synergies are expected in the future.


  • Promote analytic and intuitive understanding of the mechanical behavior of structures.
  • Demonstrate appropriate applications of information technology to young students.
  • Provide courses and documentation on structural monitoring technology, computer aided engineering and structural dynamics to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
  • Offer courses at postgraduate levels on advanced informatics and communication for research engineers
