Michelin, French institute open materials modelling lab

Clermont-Ferrand, France – The Michelin Group and Institut de Chimie de Clermont-Ferrand (ICCF) have inaugurated a joint public-private research laboratory dedicated to the modelling of polymers.

SimatLab, said Michelin on 24 May, is set up to speed up the design of new materials, the ability to model them and simulate their behaviour.

The lab’s goal is to establish a multi-scale approach, from atomic to macroscopic scale, to interpret the properties of polymer materials based on their structure and behaviour at the atomic scale.

According to Michelin, the scientific…
