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.
Towards interim characterization factors to account for the dissipation of non-energetic abiotic resource in life cycle assessment (2020-05-03)Towards interim characterization factors to account for the dissipation of non-energetic abiotic resource in life cycle assessment
Including co-simulation in modeling and simulation tool for supporting risk management in industrial context (2018)Due to increasing complexity of engineered system of systems, development of software to design and support them must tend to be more and more concurrent and distributed. To more easily tackle these systems ...
Reinforcement of cellular materials with short fibres: Application to a bio-based cork multi-scale foam (Elsevier BV, 2020)A bio-sourced foam, agglomerated cork, was chosen to evaluate the influence of short fibres on the mechanical behaviour of cellular materials. The final material was obtained by mixing cork particles with a thermoset resin. ...
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 ...
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 ...
Correlation of the low and high frequency fatigue responses of pure polycrystalline copper with mechanisms of slip band formation (ELSEVIER, 2020)Ultrasonic fatigue testing at 20 kHz was developed to accelerate fatigue tests and explore the very high cycle fatigue range. However, the use of ultrasonic fatigue systems raises the open question of the impact of frequency ...
