The Urban and Civil Engineering Testing and Modeling Laboratory – EMGCU conducts research and expertise focused on the life cycle and the safety of infrastructures.

Born on January 1st, 2018 from the merger of the Experimentation and modeling of materials and structures and Safety and durability of structures laboratories, the research team brings together around forty employees.

The laboratory's activities cover the modeling and experimentation of engineering structures in the field of transport, but also on hydraulics, industry, energy or historical monuments. They are divided into four themes:

  1.     Innovative design of materials and structures
  2.     Anomaly detection
  3.     Materials and structures diagnosis and innovative repairs
  4.     Prognosis: structural performance and risk mitigation
