PMFE (Plateforme de Mécanique des Fluides environnementale)
This is a platform for experimentation on the flows which occur in a great variety of environmental issues (whether in drainage basins, rivers, coasts, oceans, or the atmosphere), and their interactions with the living environment. The three laboratories (two of which are air-conditioned) cover a combined floor area of more than 1,000 m2, with underground tanks for storage, preparation and circulation.
The platform is designed to accommodate large-scale high-precision hydraulic equipments (long water flume, tilting channel, mesocosm with inert or biological substrate, wave flume), as well as smaller, more specialized devices. All feature specially designed powerful diagnostic tools (PIV, PLIF, ADV, etc.). These experimental tools are complemented by high-performance numerical simulation tools (DNS, LES, Saint-Venant).
