Hub International Partner Lead Academic: Professor Philippe Olivier
Clément Ader Institute (ICA) is a young research laboratory which works predominantly in the field of Solid Mechanics, the most representative subdomains being Materials, Structures, Systems, Processes and Measurement. The main applications are aeronautics and space, but also transport and energy, and more generally those linked with mechanical industry. Its activities are focused on the modelling of the behaviour of materials and structures, and the study of their sustainability. It aims to develop equally theoretical, numerical and experimental approaches. An important part of his research concerns composite materials since they are essential in today’s aerospace sector.
The laboratory is organized into four research groups: Composite Materials and Structures; Surfaces, Machining, Materials and Tools; Modelling of Mechanical Systems and Microsystems; Metrology, Identification, Control and Monitoring. The ICA has about 80 research professors, 20 temporary researchers, 20 engineers and technicians, 90 doctoral students, as well as many students. Clément Ader Institute is actively involved in numerous international, national, regional projects, with many local, national and international partners.
