IRDL is university research area, capable of supporting scientific and technological innovation thanks to its resources for the testing and measurement of materials and structures which are at the forefront in France and on the international stage.
The implementation of tools for the dimensioning of structures plays a central role in IRDL’s strategy. These testing, measurement and observation resources cover a wide range of scales from micro-structures to mini-structures. Our test and simulation resources are grouped together by generic themes which form platforms. These platforms are managed by one or several members of the Institute responsible for the monitoring, development and maintenance of all the equipment that it is made up of. In particular, they organise and establish the occupancy timetable of the equipment on the platform that they are responsible for.
