Teaching

Mechanical engineering Department (GM) at INSA, mainly Fluid Mechanics:

  • General principles (mass, momentum and energy conservation)
  • Aerodynamics
  • Compressible flows
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Open-channel hydraulics

Research topics

Page under construction

My research activities deal mainly with open-channel hydraulic, often related to risk managements:

  • river flooding and compound channels
  • urban flooding and open-channel intersection
  • urban water, sewer networks
  • supercritical flows
  • fluid/obstacle interaction

mainly with an experimental approach using the different open-channel facilities located in our laboratory, including the open-channel intersection.
