LMN - Laboratoire de Mécanique de Normandie
LMN lab is a research group accreditated by the French Ministry of Research (EA 3828). It is a member of the doctoral school PSIME and of the normand research networks «Energy and Materials», «Digital Normandy» and «Earth and Sea».
The 3 main research fields of the LMN set out below are based on a continuous process connec- ting: data collection - hierarchization and selection of the most significant aspects - modeling under uncertainty - optimization under uncertainty and reliability.
- Uncertainties, variability
- Probabilistic mechanics, reliability
- Renewable energies
- Slender Structures
- Mechatronic systems
- Design, modeling and optimization under uncertainty
- Structural safety
Know-how and expertise
Notion of random fatigue, analysis and hierarchiza- tion of risks: quantification, failure of mechanical and mechatronic systems.
Probabilisticmechanics, reliability, vibratory fatigue
Modeling and optimization under uncertainties, design in uncertain environment, improvement of systems and processes taking into account variability and uncertainties.
Analysis of uncertainties and variability in design, whatever the sectors (customs systems, wind turbines, electronic circuits ...)
The LMN has high quality equipments: vibration fatigue test benches, non-contact measurement and impact test (in creation). The LMN is also associated with «CIEMME», center of innovation and expertise in mechanics, materials and energies, set up in partnership with the leader of additive manufacturing Volum-e. It is also a partner of the «CCU», a common machining center at INSA Rouen Normandie, in particular equipped with a 5-axis machine..
A wide range of collaborations
There are many partners and countries that collaborate with the LMN: Volum-e, Ca Easylan, Aptar, Ceeva, Faurecia. The laboratory is also the leader of a national project (AMI) with the company Freyssinet and the University of Le Havre: Eoli . Germany, Brazil, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the Maghreb are among its international partners.
