The team deals with topics specific to physical metallurgy, mechanical metallurgy and digital metallurgy.
The team develops and characterizes microstructures to understand their mechanisms of formation and evolution: during and after development, in an aggressive environment, under mechanical deformation. She studies the mechanical properties (monotone, cyclic) of metal alloys, especially in the environment (liquid metal in particular). It makes the link between microstructures and properties of use.
It develops and implements numerical methods to explain and predict observed microstructures, using both atomic and continuous approaches.
