Institut de Mécanique et d’Ingénierie de Bordeaux (I2M)
I2M regroupe des équipes relatives aux nombreuses facettes de la recherche en mécanique sur Bordeaux. Cette recherche, même si elle peut être amont et très spécifique, n’est pas dissociable des métiers et des préoccupations des formations d’ingénieur.
Notre objectif est d’explorer des mosaïques de petits mécanismes pour concevoir les grandes machines de demain.
I2M : Institute of Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering of Bordeaux.
I2M Institute includes a large range of topics related to research fields in mechanical engineering on the campus of the University of Bordeaux, France. Although the topics are of fundamental nature, they cannot be separated from the applications as well as from training activities.
The aim of our Unit is to investigate a mosaic of mechanisms at the low scales in order to design the future of the mechanical engines.
Virial stress-based model to simulate the silica glass densification with the discrete element method (Wiley, 2017)The discrete element method (DEM) presents an alternative way to model complex mechanical problems of silica glass, such as brittle fracture. Since discontinuities are naturally considered by DEM, no complex transition ...
Towards interim characterization factors to account for the dissipation of non-energetic abiotic resource in life cycle assessment (2020)Towards interim characterization factors to account for the dissipation of non-energetic abiotic resource in life cycle assessment
A Method for the Quantification of Nanoparticle Dispersion in Nanocomposites Based on Fractal Dimension (Springer Singapore, 2019)Dispersion quantification provides critical insight and towards understanding and improving the influence of nanoparticle dispersion on the behaviour of the nanocomposite at macro and nanoscale level. This study was ...
Design for Reuse (DfReu) applied to buildings; anticipate disassembly for the End-of-Life (EoL), in order to preserve resources (2019)The construction and building industry is the principal emitter of GHG in France with 116 million tons of CO2 equivalent, i.e. 33% of total GHG, according to CITEPA, 2015; and the biggest consumer of material. These emissions ...
(2019)Circular Economy(CE) is an economic concept, which is in the framework of sustainable development. Circular economy is mostly related to the use of material after their life cycle, and has to be implemented at the design ...
(ELSEVIER, 2020)This paper is concerned with the computation of the inverse impulse response of a parametrized structural dynamics problem using reduced-order modeling and randomized excitations. A two-stages approach is proposed, involving ...
Development of a conceptual framework to take the dissipation of non-energetic abiotic resources into account within Life Cycle Assessment (2019)Life cycle assessment is a valuable tool to assess the ecological performance of a product system holistically. However, it is still an imperfect tool for which some of the impact categories especially need to be revisited. ...
