The GPM2 group is conducting research on the mechanics of materials by addressing their processing, forming and properties. GPM2 researchers are working to establish the relationships between the microstructure/architecture of materials resulting from their processing, the elementary mechanisms of deformation and their macroscopic behaviour. This research is based on a methodology combining experimental methods, microstructural characterization and numerical simulations.
The team is currently composed of 15 researchers and a researcher on leave (start-up VULKAM). Our research relies on 20 to 30 doctoral and post-doctoral students and on four engineers and technicians of "Mechanics and Materials Processing" axis.
