Presentation of the SIAMELaboratory for applied sciences in mechanics and electrical engineering

The SIAME laboratory is a resident research team of the University of Pau and the Pays de l'Adour whose research is carried out in the field of Engineering Sciences.

The unit is structured in 4 teams:

- Complex and energetic flows (EE),

- Geomaterials and structures for civil engineering (GS),

- Wave / Structure Interaction (IVS),

- High Voltage Processes (PHT).

The research is based on experimental expertise, modelling and numerical simulations.

The laboratory is a member of the research federations IPRA and MIRA, of the Carnot ISIFOR Institute.

One of the Laboratory's major assets is its long-standing partnership activity, which is reflected in the participation of teams in three joint research laboratories (SAGE, KOSTARISK and UPPA - Nobatek/INEF4).

The research themes developed within the SIAME laboratory are in line with 2 of the 4 main research fields structuring the research at the level of the institution, notably through membership of these 2 federations:

  • Field 1: Energy and Territories. The laboratory contributes to field 1 through the thermophysical characterization of materials associated with the storage of thermal energy and the optimization of sustainable energy systems (EE Team) and the implementation of devices for the conversion of electrical energy into high frequency and high power (PHT Team),
  • Field 2: Ecosystems, biodiversity and secure development. In this field, the research developed at SIAME concerns the control of coastal risks (IVS Team) and the development of bio-based and geosourced construction eco-materials, technical-environmental optimization (GS Team).



Doctoral and Post Doctoral Position

In the framework of the E2S UPPA project, CEA and UPPA have decided to join forces to set up a
research program around new solid-state topologies for pulsed power called HIgh VOltage Solid Switch
(HiVoSS) within the common laboratory SAGE.

In order to perform this project, the PHT team opens the recruitment of a post-doc and a PhD student. Those contracts will begin in september 2021.

The Post-doctoral position will be dedicated to the numerical simulation of the propagation of short high-voltage pulses in dispersive coaxial lines.

All information are available in the document.

The Phd student position will be dedicated to the investigations on solid-state pulsed power for a multi-pulse Inductive Voltage Adder (IVA) application.

All information are available in the document.
