RESEARCH activities at MATEIS laboratory:

Design and manufacturing of 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 CHARACTERISATION: 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

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)
