Video-of-Inauguration

  • End of March 2015 was inaugurated the Chair for Computational Mechanics attributed by FEDER to French Region Picardie. A two-day inauguration symposium entitled “Challenges and Perspectives for Innovation in Mechanics” helped clarify the main goals of this chair, spelled out by Professor Adnan Ibrahimbegovic, the Chair holder: “The Chair for Computational Mechanics Picardie is a creation of UTC with the intention to restructure the school offers in this area, and provide jobs and resources to meet the challenges posed by our industry partners,” added Adnan Ibrahimbegovic. The latter are many at current time where globalization generates greater competition, with only innovation that can bring a timely response. “We also going through a transition period in terms of R & D, where large industrial groups no longer can afford to keep the whole battalions of researchers,” says the professor. The mechanics in the heart of the regional economy: R & D is increasingly outsourced, and partnerships with laboratories and research centers have become a necessity. “It turns out that UTC was created with such ideas in mind pertinent to applied research and close links with industry: the creation of this chair responds to the current challenge of uniting the human and financial resources to innovate and create partnerships over the long term period, ” he analyzes. Thus, the historical partners of UTC and other industrial partners (CETIM CEREMA, ESI Group, Altair, DeltaCAD, IRT-Railenium, PlasticOmnium …) were invited at the second day of the inaugural conference, to present their needs and expectations. The Regional Council of Picardie is financially supporting the Chair creation, since Mechanics is one of the pillars of the regional economy. “Whether in the fields of transportation – road, rail and waterway -, energy or health, mechanics plays a key role,” says Adnan Ibrahimbegovic. Gather all forces in the logic of a project. In the field of energy, the wind power sources are of interest, both for the development of offshore wind turbines (with large blades to benefit from strong winds) or inland wind farms (with flexible blades to capture variable wind speed). In health care, further collaboration with the laboratory BMBI are already being considered. Finally, in dealing with complexity and uncertainty that characterize real engineering problems, the partnership with the laboratories of control Heudiasic and of Applied Math are envisaged. “The goal is to unite the forces in the logic of a project, which can also allow us to present projects at European level”, aims Adnan Ibrahimbegovic. The Chair support was initially planned for three years, to be subsequently renewed, in order to perpetuate its activities thereafter.
