SIMCO Platform

SIMCO PlatformDigital simulation for sustainable construction and civil engineering

This platform is a part of the UPPA Instrumental Service Center: UPPATECH.

It is linked to the SIAME laboratory and is managed by Christian LA BORDERIE and Olivier MAUREL.

The SIMCO platform is specialized in advanced numerical simulation, analysis and expertise of civil engineering structures. The numerical simulations use methods and software not available to conventional structural engineering offices and apply to materials and structures in civil engineering, building and public works.
