As part of TANDEM*, an Investment in the Future Programme, the Cardamom project-team is contributing to “the expansion of scientific knowledge of France to anticipate the impact of a tsunami on France's Atlantic coastlines.” Ten renowned partners have committed to the four-year multidisciplinary project designed to provide improved awareness of risks and corrective actions to take.
What are the laws of physics that determine the movements of millions of grains in a silo?It’s a question that has baffled scientists for over a century.The work of Nicolas Brodu, a post-doctoral researcher in the Geostat project team at Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest, has thrown a little more light on the matter.
The global community of scientific computing has assembled in Salt Lake City, and will remain there until 16 November. Inria, a committed member of this event, established in 1988, has participated for nearly 20 years by sending its specialising in high performance computing (HPC).
European Research Council 2011
This year anew, four young researchers form Inria have got a grant from the very selective European Research Council, ERC, to take the lead of a five year long exploratory research with a budget of 1 to 1.5 million Euros. Interview with one of the prize-winners, the mathematician and computer specialist, Andreas Enge, head of the Inria project-team Lfant in Bordeaux.
How can populations be protected in the event of an earthquake? The answer is by identifying the areas at risk by mapping the subsoil. This is one of the fields of application of the work of Inria’s Magique-3D project-team, a joint team with the applied mathematics laboratory of the University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour. The aim of this team is to better understand geophysical phenomena using 3D simulation methods. Magique-3D is the fruit of a successful collaboration between industry (Total) and public research entities (Inria, CNRS).
