Important societal issues require to solve problems of increasing complexity. A key vector of progress relies on multi-scale and multi-physics approaches. The aim of the winter school is to make an overview of the different approaches, numerical and experimental techniques allowing to tackle this complexity. All the courses are illustrated through various up-to-date examples. Two entire days are dedicated to practical excercises on « high-tech demonstrators » based on the most recent techniques and methods developed by partner laboratories of Tec 21.
One week for connecting theory to experiments and numerical simulations starts with 2 theoretical sessions dealing with multiscale approaches in mechanics and numerical and experimental tools and methods, followed by two practical sessions during which the attendants will be dispatched in the laboratories to manipulate some of the most up-to-date equipment used in research. The last day is dedicated to the specific problem of nanoscale mechanics.
