The material content is the essence of a product; it confers colour, shape and sets the conditions for high-quality parts. All industrial products depend largely on the original materials assembled together.

"A polymer “opal” which changes colour when stretched, a material lighter than an aerogel, a contractile gel which stores light energy, an “invisible” man’s cape, or a self-welding polymer… a full mosaic of revolutionary materials soon available to support reliability constraints and all ecologically compliances, to better serve the need of the Industry of the Future."

Research activities

Research units involved

  • Laboratory of Mechanical & Material Engineering (LASMIS)
  • A Corresponding Research Laboratory, viz., NICCI: the Nogent international centre for CVD innovation
    The French national Agency for Atomic and Alternative Energy Sources – CEA signed an agreement recognizing the UTT Nogent spinoff site as a Corresponding Laboratory, enabling access to special equipment and co-financing of PhD theses. The scientific fields explored are as numerous as they are varied: extreme milieus, new energy-related technologies, health-care, environment, energy efficiency.


3D digitisation and virtual engineering (“Num3D”)

Num3D is a regional, multi-site platform operated and managed by UTT-LASMIS. It is equipped with instruments, devices and associate software to ensure in-house development of virtual engineering: reverse engineering design, immersive visualization, digital mock-ups, virtual shaping for mechanical engineering components, advanced PLM (product lifecycle management). 


This platform is equipped to provide ways and means to make and test deposits and surface-added functionalities. ADHERE contributes to strengthening the partnership between UTT-LASMIS and the CEA concerning surface sciences and engineering.


A dual site plateform (Troyes and Reims) specialized in nanofabrication and nano-characterization for numerous applications. Its purpose and main aims are to accompany research work, alongside academic and industrial development.

Collaboration with enterprises 

  • Material life expectancy assessments, analysis of residual stress, modelling of surface pre-stress shot-blasting processes with IRT M2P
  • Measurements of residual stresses in aluminium alloy parts, with PSA
    (car manufacturer)
  • Modelling of behaviours and catastrophic material failures, with the CEA.
  • Assessment of the impact of residual stress due to shot-blasting in designing industrial assembly parts (an IRT M2P project) CONDOR, in a collaboration with ONERA, ENSAM Paris-Tech, SAFRAN Group, AREVA and PSA.
