RESEARCH activities at MATEIS laboratory Design and manufacturing architectured materials, a promising class of structural materials with added properties. We use various methods to tailor the structure of the materials, including additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy. Microstructure and structure characterization: hardness, optical and electron microscopy, X-Ray diffraction and 3D tomography Assessment of their mechanical behavior (compression, tensile, fatigue) using in situ and 3D experiments Link to publications: https://scholar.google.fr/citations?user=5aX-s00AAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao TEACHING activities in the Mechanical Engineering Department of INSA Lyon Materials Science with an emphasis on the link between process-induced microstructures (all classes of materials) and mechanical properties Materials selection methods Heat treatments of steels and aluminium alloys Phase transformation of various classes of alloys (precipitation, recovery/recrystallisation)
