Strenghthening the scientific partnerships at our major facilities

Assessment of the rain tightness of roof elements in the athmospheric test section of Jules Verne climatic wind tunnel

A Platform Scientific Council for the Jules Verne wind tunnel was set up to strengthen and develop scientific partnerships with academic laboratories. The same will be true very soon for the other major CSTB test facilities.

These major facilities, which are substantial investments, must be made more visible both nationally and internationally. They have the capacity, but they must make sure they stand on recognized scientific foundations shared with academic partners. The role of the Platform Scientific Council is to convey the contributions of academic research regarding the experimental capabilities of the platforms and their pairing with digital simulation tools. This is so that we can develop them to address more complex questions while using the results already achieved.
