You are confronted with a fire or a freeze-thaw climatic variation? You are in the construction phase of a reinforced concrete structure? You have a problem of mechanical resistance and waterproofing of the walls?
We can accompany you and help you find the solution.
Structures can be subject to geometric variations of thermal origin such as expansion or contraction. They can also undergo drying (desiccation of concrete) or creep problems. This often leads to the degradation of mechanical properties such as fire resistance.
These efforts are complex subjects not always handled by engineers. Moreover, the calculation software treats these phenomena in a simplified way.
These phenomena are important and can impact both new designs and the re-evaluation of existing projects.
Simplified studies that are carried out in the feasibility phase or preliminary opinion.
Detailed studies are carried out with multiphysical modelling to meet a wide range of requirements.
We master the physical models that describe these phenomena and their interactions.
We exploit all the regulatory possibilities such as Eurocodes or Code Model.
Each methodology used is calibrated and validated by current regulations and experimental tests.
We are modeling these phenomena using the finite element method.
