  • Advances in Contact Mechanics

    This is a reading class intended for graduate students interested in learning about the recent and fast developments in the field of contact mechanics and tribology. We will read basic introductory chapters and have in-depth class discussions on recent publications (from nanotriboly to earthquakes).

    Teachers : Molinari Jean-François.

  • Continuum mechanics (for GC)

    This class addresses Continuum Mechanics, which is fundamental component of the civil engineering curriculum. It covers the concepts of deformation, stress, general principles, equilibrium equations, and constitutive laws.

    Teachers : Molinari Jean-François.
    Language : french


  • Numerical modelling of solids and structures

    Solids and structures numerical modeling is addressed through the finite-element method. Purely analytic aspects are first presented, before describing numerical interpolation, integration and resolution of solid mechanics problems by using various finite element types.

    Teachers : Anciaux Guillaume. Molinari Jean-François.

  • Parallel programming

    Learn the concepts, tools and API's that are needed to debug, test, optimize and parallelize a scientific application on a cluster from an existing code or from scratch. Both OpenMP (shared memory) and MPI (distributed memory) paradigms are presented and experimented.

  • Programming concepts in scientific computing

    The aim of this course is to provide the background in scientific computing. The class includes a brief introduction to basic programming in c++, it then focus on object oriented programming and c++ specific programming techniques.

    Teachers : Anciaux Guillaume.
    Language : english


  • Scientific programming for Engineers

    The students will acquire a solid knowledge on the processes necessary to design, write and use scientific software. Software design techniques will be used to program a multi-usage particles code, aiming at providing the link between algorithmic/complexity, optimization and program designs.

    Teachers : Anciaux Guillaume.
    Language : english


  • Selected topics in mechanics of solids and structures

    The class covers the fundamentals of wave dynamics and fracture mechanics. The aim is to deepen their knowledge in advanced topis in mechanics of solids and structures and discuss current research topics. Case studies on catastrophic failure will be presented and discussed in class.
