Patrick LE TALLEC field of research is concerned with computational mechanics. A part of his career was devoted to Augmented Lagrangian and operator splitting methods in nonlinear mechanics, to the numerical analysis and simulation of nonlinear elastic problems, to domain decomposition techniques and to fluid structure interaction problems. His current interests concern the dynamics and control of nonlinear structures, the multiscale simulation of contact problems, and the development of multiscale and multimaterial modelling for nonlinear structures.
