LaCàN with 14-research faculty is a well-balanced active and young group in Computational Mechanics with strong commitment to both high-educational training (15 PhD theses supervised in the past 5 years) and research (130 indexed papers in the last 5 years, among those 52% with international coauthors).
LaCàN focuses on both mathematical modeling and computational methods, and their applications to applied sciences and engineering. This includes fields extending across engineering and mathematics. This is reflected in the composition of the group, the nature of the research projects and pattern of publications. Consequently, there are contributions in a wide number of applied areas (viz. acoustics, mechanics of solids and fluids, geophysical and biomechanics) and applications of these techniques include mechanical, aerospace, automotive, civil or energy engineering.
