Multi scale approaches and multiphysic couplings in fluid and solid mechanics

Grenoble, September 12 to 20, 2018

Important societal issues require to solve problems of increasing complexity in mechanical and process engineering. A key vector of progress relies on multi-scale  and multi-physics approaches.

One week for connecting theory to experiment and numerical simulations

The aim of this summer school is to make an overview of the different approaches, numerical and experimental techniques allowing to tackle this complexity.

All the courses will be illustrated through various up-to-date examples. Two entire days will be dedicated to practical excercises on « high tech demonstrators » based on the most recent techniques and methods developed by partner laboratories of Tec21 (see details about our demonstrators here).

The last day will be dedicated to the particular question of instabilities in fluid and solid mechanics. 

Please note that the number of participants is limited

and the registration dead line is on the 1st of September


For PhD students, a certificate of attendance will be delivered on demand for any administrative purpose.

All lectures and courses will be given in english


The participants will attend two practical sessions (one day each) to manipulate the most recent experimental and numerical tools and methods


Three poster sessions will be held during the first three days of the school to give the participants the opportunity to pitch about their work



A welcome dinner is organised on Wednesday 12 in the evening to get the participants to know each other before the beginning of the summer school.


An icebreaker cocktail is organised on Thrusday 13 for the participants and the teachers to share a friendly moment after the first day of the school


Saturday afternoon is time off. A nice city tour, with an unforgettable lift to the highest point of Grenoble will be organised for those who wish to visit the town


On Sunday, an excursion will be organised to take the participants to the great outdoors of the Alps around Grenoble


On wednesday evening all the participants and the teachers will meet for dinner in an easy-going atmosphere
