Modelling of transport infrastructures
LAMES develops constitutive models and numerical programs dedicated to the mechanical behavior of transport infrastructures: specific programs based on semi-analytical or finite element methods.
It carries out research on the damage mechanisms of transport infrastructures: fatigue, cracking, behavior of interlayer interface, frost/thaw-induced damage.
It is also involved in the development of software and design methods of road and airfield pavements as well as in their reinforcement methods.
Contribution to RILEM works on Mechanisms of Cracking and Debonding in Pavements (MCD)
Twenty years after earlier publication, the RILEM Technical Committee TC 241-MCD on Mechanisms of Cracking and Debonding in Asphalt and Composite Pavements (2011/17) has conducted a new State-of-the-Art Report (STAR) published by Springer.
This STAR book completed all the papers published for the 8th RILEM International Conference on Mechanisms of Cracking and Debonding in Pavements (MCD2016) in Nantes, France, on June 7-9, 2016. More information about MCD2016 : website of the conference.
