The structural mechanics and coupled systems laboratory (Lmssc) is a research group of the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers. It was created in 1997 and is recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research as a research unit (EA 3196).
The studies carried out concern the development of robust predictive models of dynamic coupled systems using adaptive treatments. The results of this research are mainly applied to the academic world, research centers and R&D department of high technology industries. The associated mechanical engineering teaching activities benefit from this original developed research.
The team has various industrial collaborations, mainly with aeronautics and astronautics. The Lmssc is also involved in several European and international projects.
