Computation Tools

Computation Tools.

The Applied Dynamics Laboratory is equipped for finite element computations, applied to static and dynamic analysis of complex structures. Such computations are performed using CAST3M, a general purpose computer code developed by our partners from CEA (France). Advanced analysis are performed with specific computational tools, developed at ADL. The test rigs are designed at ADL and developed at the Campus workshop facilities.
