Section: Application Domains


Wave propagation in solids is with no doubt, among the three fundamental domains that are acoustics, electromagnetism and elastodynamics, the one that poses the most significant difficulties from mathematical and numerical points of view. A major application topic has emerged during the past years : the non destructive testing by ultra-sounds which is the main topic of our collaboration with CEA-LIST. On the other hand, we are developing efficient integral equation modelling for geophysical applications (soil-structure interaction for civil engineering, seismology).
