GENERAL PARTNER DESCRIPTION

MSM team is a numerical team with a strong experimental involvement within Materials and Structures Mechanics Laboratory (M&S) mainly focused on MATERIAL BEHAVIOUR (steel, Ti, Al, Ni... metals + coating). Its activities are the development and identification of constitutive thermo-mechanical-metallurgical laws within multi-scale approaches. These rheological models are applied within FE codes to predict damage and rupture during forming process, specific static or fatigue loading. The simulations can be extended toward the modelling of forming processes such as deep drawing, straightening, cold roll forming, continuous casting, incremental forming, vertical spincasting, superplastic forming, microforming... MSM team has develop since 1984 its own non linear finite element code Lagamine.
