Computer experiments and reliability

For several years now, select has collaborated with the EDF-DER Maintenance des Risques Industriels group. One important theme involves the resolution of inverse problems using simulation tools to analyze incertainty in highly complex physical systems.

The other major theme concerns reliability, through a research collaboration with Nexter involving a Cifre convention. This collaboration concerns a lifetime analysis of a vehicle fleet to assess ageing.

Moreover, a collaboration is ongoing with Dassault Aviation on the modal analysis of mechanical structures, which aims to identify the vibration behavior of structures under dynamic excitation. From the algorithmic point of view, modal analysis amounts to estimation in parametric models on the basis of measured excitations and structural response data. In literature and existing implementations, the model selection problem associated with this estimation is currently treated by a rather weighty and heuristic procedure. In the context of our own research, model selection via penalization methods are being tested on this model selection problem.
