ELAN Research team
modELing the Appearance of Nonlinear phenomena
ELAN has the ambition to become a unique simulation team at Inria with an original positioning across Computer Graphics and Computational Mechanics.
of scientic skills across Mechanics and Physics, Applied Mathematics, and Computer Science.
The ELAN team is focussed on three main research axes:
- The numerical modeling of slender elastic structures (rods, plates, and shells), especially when prone to large displacements and buckling
- The discrete handling of frictional contact problems, within the framework of nonsmooth contact mechanics
- The modeling, analysis and solving of inverse design problems.
International and industrial relations
The ELAN team is involved, since 2015, in the ERC Starting Grant GEM. Within this project, several national and international collaborations have been set up, among which:
- Inria teams MORPHEO and IMAGINE
- Institut Jean le Rond d'Alembert (Paris)
- OLM Digital (Japan)
The team is also involved in a long-term partnership with the University of Minnesota (USA) and IIT Delhi (India), and in several industrial collaborations in the fields of mechanical engineering and the feature film industry.
