Regional Initiatives


Participant : Ivan Guéguen.


Participant : Xavier Chapeleau.


Participants : Xavier Chapeleau, Laurent Mevel, Frederic Gillot.

SURFEOL: SURveillance et Fiabilité des Fondations d'EOLiennes

Participants : Xavier Chapeleau, Michael Doehler, Laurent Mevel, Flavien Bouché.

The regional project SURFEOL was in collaboration with les Chantiers de l'Atlantique and ended in 2017. Many months of data were collected. Three main axes were investigated.

A Master 2 internship was dedicated on the analysis of multiple months of data by means of data analysis and subspace identification techniques.

Collaboration with IETR

Participants : Vincent Le Cam, David Pallier.

The thesis is directed by Sébastien Pillement at IETR. It is funded by RFI WISE Electronique Professionnelle within the SENTAUR project. The objective is to correct the time drift of the quartz in wireless sensor networks. Quartz modelizations, test platforms under real GPS conditions have been built. First results are based on Kalman algorithms to correct drift[34].

Collaboration with GeM

Participants : Laurent Mevel, Michael Doehler.

I4S' PhD student Md Delwar Hossain Bhuyan has done his PhD on damage localization on civil structures in collaboration with GeM (Institute of Civil and Mechanical Engineering), Université de Nantes, and successfully defended in November 2017. In the follow-up, a mockup of the Saint Nazaire bridge has been funded by GeM in 2018 for damage localization, and tests on it are ongoing [25].

Vibration analysis by video image processing for civil engineering structure monitoring

Participants : Bian Xiong, Qinghua Zhang.
