The missions of Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) (www.cnrs.fr) are to evaluate and carry out research capable of advancing knowledge and bringing social, cultural, and economic benefits to society; to contribute to the application and promotion of research results; to develop scientific information. CNRS is involved in all fields of knowledge.

The Process and Engineering in Mechanics and Materials laboratory (PIMM UPR CNRS Arts et Métiers Paris Tech) in Paris brings together a wide range of specialists from the mechanics of materials and structures to the polymer chemistry and from forming and assembling processes, to advanced methods for numerical simulation. Since 1989, PIMM works on applications using Shock produced by laser. Based on experimental and numerical modeling approaches, it studies interaction laser-matter in water confinement regime, dynamic behaviour and damage of material under shock, Laser shock peening and adhesion test. In 2014, PIMM built a laser facility, called „ HEPHAISTOS“ dedicaded to laser shock applications for material science towards industrial processes. Since 2000, PIMM collaborates on the developpement of the technique LASAT with PPRIME (CNRS laboratory) located in Poitiers. Since 2008, labs work on the use of shock laser to test a different scales Carbon Fiber Reinforce Polymers.

Role in the project

The main role of CNRS in COMBONDT will be concerned the study and the improvement of Shock Wave Adhesion Test (WP4) as predictive and robust method to test the state of assembling in relation with material properties. An effort will be done on the development of new operating process in manufacturing environment and for ground operation.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 636494.

This project is endorsed by the European Aeronautics Science Network - EASN.
