A joint research unit UMR5259 of the INSA Lyon and the CNRS, the role of LaMCoS is to carry out research on understanding and controlling the behavior of mechanical structures and systems by studying their interfaces.
We innovate to improve understanding of fundamental phenomena to anticipate major societal challenges and respond to technological problems in the fields of Transport, Energy, Health, Biomedicine, Sport and Machine Tools.

Main axes :

  • Surfaces and interfaces, tribology
  • Non-linear dynamics
  • Vibration Control, Structural Monitoring, Energy Recovery
  • Integrity of surfaces, solids and structures under extreme stress
  • Formatting composites
  • Numerical simulation of processes / innovative processes
  • Mechanical and electromechanical transmissions
  • Bioengineering
