Bachelor, masters and PhD courses

  • Advanced continuum mechanics

    Reading class of classic text book of Lawrence Malvern "Introduction to the Mechanics of a Continuous Medium". A special emphasis will be put on advanced topics, including finite kinematics, and non-linear material behavior. Applications will cover both solids and structures fluid mechanics.

    Teachers : Molinari Jean-François.
    Language : english


  • Advances in Contact Mechanics

    This reading class will meet every Friday afternoon to discuss the book of Christopher Scholz (one chapter every two weeks). Class discussions will emphasize a mechanistic understanding of geophysical phenomena, with in depth discussions of fracture mechanics, and friction/wear processes.

    Teachers : Molinari Jean-François.
    Language : english


  • CCMX Tribology and Surfaces Interactions

    This course is intended to give to the participants (graduates, researchers and industrial professionals) a solid background in tribology and surface interactions. It covers the fundamentals concepts of tribology including surfaces, contact mechanics, friction, lubrication and wear.

    Teachers : Molinari Jean-François.
    Language : english


  • Continuum mechanics (for GC)

    This class addresses Continuum Mechanics, which is fundamental component of the civil engineering curriculum. It covers the concepts of deformation, stress, general principles, equilibrium equations, and constitutive laws.

    Teachers : Molinari Jean-François.
    Language : french


  • Numerical modelling of solids and structures

    Solids and structures numerical modeling is addressed through the finite-element method. Purely analytic aspects are first presented, before describing numerical interpolation, integration and resolution of solid mechanics problems by using various finite element types.

    Teachers : Anciaux Guillaume. Molinari Jean-François.
    Language : french


  • Parallel and high-performance computing

    This course provides insight into a broad variety of High Performance Computing (HPC) concepts and the majority of modern HPC architectures. Moreover, the student will learn to have a feeling about what architectures are suited for several types of algorithms.

    Teachers : Richart Nicolas.
    Language : english


  • Parallel programming

    Learn the concepts, tools and API's that are needed to debug, test, optimize and parallelize a scientific application on a cluster from an existing code or from scratch. Both OpenMP (shared memory) and MPI (distributed memory) paradigms are presented and experimented.

    Teachers : Richart Nicolas.
    Language : english


  • Programming concepts in scientific computing

    Teachers : Anciaux Guillaume.
    Language : english


  • Scientific programming for Engineers

    The students will acquire a solid knowledge on the processes necessary to design, write and use scientific software. Software design techniques will be used to program a multi-usage particles code, aiming at providing the link between algorithmic/complexity, optimization and program designs.

    Teachers : Anciaux Guillaume.
    Language : english


  • Selected topics in mechanics of solids and structures

    The class covers the fundamentals of wave dynamics and fracture mechanics. The aim is to deepen their knowledge in advanced topis in mechanics of solids and structures and discuss current research topics. Case studies on catastrophic failure will be presented and discussed in class.
