In the last 30 years there has been an extraordinary increase in simulation and modeling tools used by design engineers, decision makers and public services. Research in mechanical and process engineering has provided a significant contribution to progress in these areas.
Today's scientific and technological challenges arise from new issues: sustainable development, alternative resource management, green technologies, environmental impact reduction, risk management, health care...
The aim of Tec 21 Laboratory of Excellence is that our research contributes to developing new engineering solutions for today’s increasingly complex challenges.
The amazing coils of the entangled wire
The researchers from Laboratoire 3SR and their colleagues from ILM (Lyon) have designed a new material consisting in a single long coiled elastic or superelastic wire which showed unprecedented mechanical behaviour. (read more).
