Our team counts 14 researchers, 4 engineers & technicians, and about fifteens PhD students & postdocs. We are specialized in the study and the modeling of the properties of complex materials made of solid particles, drops or bubbles, suspended in one or several fluids. We also study transport properties in porous media. Our studies combine both experimental and theoretical approaches, as well as numerical simulations, from continuous to discrete methods. They focus mainly on granular materials, colloidal and non‐colloidal suspensions, foams and bubbly materials, gels, porous materials, woods, capillary systems, … The main domains of application of our research are the materials for construction, energy and environment.
Bio-based construction materials are systems containing or formed of vegetal particles, such as wood, hemp, cellulose, flax, cotton, etc., possibly…
