The “Multi-scale" team endeavors to understand and predict the mechanical, and more generally multi-physical, behaviors of materials and structures from a description of their heterogeneities present at one or more fine scales, phenomena elementary physics that operate there, and the complex local interactions that result from it. To do this, it develops advanced modeling, numerical simulation and experimental analysis tools capable of understanding the links between scales, and implements them on a wide range of solid materials, in particular construction materials and geomaterials, but also materials for energy, as well as on heterogeneous civil engineering structures.
