Research and development

The constant evolution of knowledge and the scientific tools available allow us to better understand the structures and their materials.

The end result: projects that are less and less costly and more and more environmentally friendly. The essential lever of this evolution is the consecration of a significant energy in R&D.

Research and development: a growing and multiple need

Do you want to explore an academic topic that seems promising to improve the state of the art or that of your activity?

An administrative authority increases the levels of requirements on the expected performance of your infrastructure and you can’t justify them with existing methods?

Disasters bring new risks to your assets?

To identify these problems, define the solutions and deepen them, we can accompany you.reveal new risks on your assets?

At Sixense necs, 30% of our turnover is dedicated to research and development.

The activities related to R&D correspond to internal innovation programs. They include the development of new modeling techniques, the improvement of the robustness and reliability of production tools and participation in collaborative projects with external partners.

Listed below are some examples of collaborative projects related to programs and funding offered by various organizations:

  • EVSIM (ANR) : A mechanical approach to assessing the seismic vulnerability of masonry
  • MARS (FED): Advanced methods for seismic risk
  • SIPRIS (OSEO) : Intelligent system for the prevention of structural risks
  • ILMAB (OSEO) : Building modeling and software infrastructure
  • SICODYN (OSEO) : For credible simulations via test-calculation correlation test and uncertainty estimation in structural dynamics
  • CEOS.FR (PN, RGC&U) : Behavior and evaluation of special structures with respect to cracking and shrinkage
  • OASIS (OSEO) : Optimization of bonding surfaces in deep drawing
  • COLL@VIZ (ANR) : Open source platform for remote collaborative multi-domain pre/post processing
  • SPE3 (CNRC, BARCOM) : Standard exercise on containment performance under severe accident conditions
  • SMART (FED/CEA) : Model seismic behavior of reinforced concrete
  • SPÈCES (OCDE/NEA, FED) : Benchmark on seismic capacity beyond reinforced concrete shear wall design
  • MACENA (Investissement d’Avenir) : Control of the containment of an accident vessel
  • VERSIONS (FED) : Pre-stressed concrete at an early age and aging
