We help you to design innovative materials or systems based on a rigorous methodology.
Doing so, we may need to develop new predicting models or experimental benches adapted to the behaviors of these newly developed materials.

You can already benefit from our public research works or build a specific partnership with us.

Around 30% of our time is dedicated to internal R&D studies to anticipate your needs.
Most of these internal research works are published in international peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Check our publications for details.

Public research projects

We are continuously appointed to contribute to collaborative research projects at national and Europe levels.

SilentProp, noise assessment and suppression methodologies for the next airplane generation of silent distributed propulsion configurations.
No2Noise, lightweight and silent, multifunctional composite structures for airplanes.
Acoutect, when Acoustics meets Architects.
Denorms, Designs for Noise Reducing Materials and Structures.
LaBS & Climb, ComputationaL methods with Intensive Multiphysics Boltzmann solver.
The main result is a simulation tool ProLB
EcOBEx, Reduction of the pass-by noise for cars.


Modeling developments

Our models are based on the latest analytical, TMM, FEM, SEA or LBM developments.
Below are some current or past examples of our work.

Investigation of the potential of composite porous materials for sound absorption and sound insulation

Description of physical phenomena involved in the damping of concrete floors

Development of a hybrid TMM/FEM model

Development of a model to qualify the sound absorption performance of anechoic wedges


Our methodology

1. Characterize the material

i.e. determine the intrinsic parameters of the materials via measurements or computational approaches (e.g. micro-macro approaches).

2. Understand the material functionning

From the characterization results, deduce the physical phenomena which can occur in the material.

3. Model and optimize the performances

Once physical phenomena are identified, a model can be chosen or build for the material and an optimization of the performances of this material or system containing this material can be processed.

4. Capitalize on the knowledge

One keypoint of our work is that you capitalize on the knowledge we have aquired via a transfer of technology, training programs, customized computational tools, custom test rigs...
