Welcome Research Publications



Research topics

The common point of my research topics is  flow-induced vibrations. Generally, these vibrations, or oscillations, have to be avoided or calculated when it is not possible to mitigate them. These researches use massively experimental tools such as wind tunnels. Applications are numerous but my main domain of interest is Wind Engineering for large flexibles structures.

Currently I am interested in the simulation of wind effects in the temporal domain, notably by developping mechanical models that are fed by coefficients measured in wind tunnels.
