According to Wikipedia, Mechanics refers to a branch of physical science concerned with the behavior of physical bodies when subjected to forces or displacements.
The Mechanical Industries design and produce parts, machines, and all engines, vehicles, bodies that generate or transmit motion, forces or deformation.
The Mechanical Industry is a leading industrial employer in France with 620,000 employees and achieves a turnover of more than € 101 billion from which 40% of exports (figures 2010, French Federation of Mechanical Industries).
Two years of theoretical Solid and Fluid Mechanics in Grenoble, in the French Alps , completed with one year in University Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris granted me a Master of Applied Mechanics.
Then, I’ve been enrolled in a PhD Thesis, titled Elastoviscoplasticity at variable temperature, in order to develop constitutive equations for the behavior at high temperature of metal alloys used in the aircraft industry.
Once my PhD achieved, I’ve been hired within a research department of a worldwide automotive company, as a research engineer for the development of numerical tools modeling the different casting processes, using well known finite elements and finite differences packages.
