Fed3G Conference

On the 7th of October 2021, the Fed3G and Tec21 organise a scientific conference entitled "mechanics of porous media: gels and biological tissues"

The conference is open to everyone, including master students, and will give plenty of opportunities for discussions between speakers and attendees.


8:30 - 9:00 Welcome coffee

9:00 - 10:15 Session 1 - Generalities on porous media

  • Eric Lemarchand (Institut Navier, Marne-la-vallée): mécanique des milieux poreux: apport de la stratégie micromécanique (55')
  • Marie Plazanet (LIPhy, Grenoble): couplage entre transport et contrainte mécanique dans les milieux nanoporeux déformables (20')

10:15 - 10:45 Coffee break


10:45 - 12:55 Session 2 - Gels

  • Tristan Baumberger (Institut des nanosciences de Paris): Environmental control of crack growth in soft hydrogels (55')
  • Thibaut Divoux (Laboratoire de Physique, ENS Lyon): Métrologie des gels : transition sol-gel et propriétés d'adhésion de gels d'agar (55')
  • Mehdi Bouzid (3SR, Grenoble): Interplay between structure and mechanical performances of multi-component colloidal gels

12:55 - 14:15 Lunch break


14:15 - 15:30 Session 3 - Biological tissues

  • Davide Ambrosi (Politecnico di Torino): Growth and mechanics in multicellular spheroids (55')
  • Pierre Recho (LIPhy, Grenoble): The mechanical role of extracellular matrix in cell aggregates (20')

15:30 Conclusion

Sanitary restrictions

In accordance with current regulations, all participants are required to present a valid "health pass" to gain access to the conference. Thank you for your understanding.


The event is free, but for practical reasons, the participants are asked to register before the 20th of September.
