Mechanical engineering, energy and electricity (ROBERVAL)

Research unit - UMR 7337


The Roberval laboratory is positioned on the design of innovative mechanical/multiphysical components and systems, proposing to conduct scientific and technological research in an interdisciplinary context, a prerequisite for the design, the study of the behaviour and sustainability of complex systems. In particular, the laboratory makes a substantive contribution to defining a framework for studying these complex systems (choice of systems or mechanistic approach, choice of scales relevant to the study of variability, etc.).
