LMN Lab research activities focus on uncertainty analysis in mechanics modeling and structure optimization. LMN Lab aims at implementing design and dimensioning methods to ensure safe, reliable and solid structures able to manage variability, dispersions, inaccuracies and uncertainties.
Fully committed to reliability, the LMN researchers address experimental, digital and theoretical aspects of mechanical structure optimization. Their research is based on structures in harsh, hazardous or uncertain environments.
The LMN key research topics include reliability optimization, characterization and causal analysis of failures, calculation of design uncertainties and systems analysis involving random aspects. Specific interest is devoted to structures which are subject to damage as a result of harsh environments driven by randomness or uncertainty. A major part of our research involves partnerships with companies operating in automotive, aeronautics, mechanical and civil engineering industries
Working with Mové'o - a competitive cluster and INSA Rouen Normandie partner - our laboratory develops innovative collaborative projects focused on electronic components for embedded systems. At local level, we partnered with several laboratories committed to:
• enhancement of joint multidisciplinary research topics
• sharing of skills
• joint equipment and resources management
• research value creation
• strengthening of industrial or services relationships
• fostering entrepreneurship
The LMN includes research professors, associate professors of various nationalities and researchers working in industry.
Located in the INSA Rouen Normandie premises, the laboratory is equipped to perform non-contact measures of mechanics fields, static and vibration mechanics tests, as well as modeling and optimization.
