Course Name：Numerical modeling of solids and structures
Ziad MOUMNI is Professor of mechanical engineering, deputy head of the Department of Mechanics, leader of the research group “matériaux et structures” (MS) and head of the “Pôle transport” at ENSTA ParisTech. He holds a Ph.D in non-linear mechanics, (LMS Ecole polytechnique, 1995) and a HDR « habilitation à diriger les recherches » in engineering sciences from the university Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris 6 (2009). His research fields deal with the theoretical and numerical modeling of the behavior, fatigue and fracture of non-linear materials and structures presenting multi-physics and thermo- mechanical coupling, namely smart materials and structures. In 2000, he created the research group MS which is today internationally recognized for
its activities in the field of smart materials and structures. He is involved in many industrial applications in the field of transportation and energy (PSA, SNCF, CNES, CEA, EDF, SNECMA, Renault). He published more than 80 papers in international journals (IJP, JMPS, IJSS, SMS, IJF, IJES etc.). He is a foreign expert in China and holds since May 2012 the position of visiting Professor at the Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi’an. In 2015 Professor Ziad MOUMNI was rewarded by "The People's Republic of China Friendship Award”.
