Presentation of the laboratory
LMANM consists of four major two-way teams, one for experimental study of new materials and the other for modeling and simulation of innovative materials. These two approaches are complementary and inseparable from the level of technological research. The objective of LMANM is to support recent developments in the innovative materials industry in Algeria to meet the future needs of this sector in terms of training specialized managers to provide solutions to various problems in this area and the social and economic benefits of our country.
LMANM aims to develop new technologies to master the lifecycle of new materials, from extractions, transitions and functions in service conditions to recycling.
Take advantage of the skills in the laboratory to apply reliable techniques for the extraction of natural fibers (palm, cactus, agave, etc.) in Algeria and to spread their exploitation in the various Algerian industries (chopsticks, small boats, kayaks, prostheses, etc.).
Objectives of Scientific Research and Technological Development:
Laboratory skills in various research topics intend to combine basic and applied research in order to provide effective solutions that solve and address the various problems facing the national industry. As a result, our laboratory differs from other laboratories by:
Development and design of new materials; study of high-performance composite materials for space uses, satellites, military industry (rockets, bulletproof vest, helmet, ...) .
Extract and manufacture local natural fibers such as palm fiber, agave and cactus. These natural materials are a source of renewable and environmental energy with many applications in agriculture, bio-vehicles in the automotive industry ... etc. This will enable, for example, the manufacture and use of this type of fiber in the Algerian manufacturing industry (cord plant) and the reduction of imports from Brazil and Tanzania;
Contribute to the development of the Algerian prosthetic and shipbuilding industry through the use of consumables;
Study the natural and synthetic aging of complex chemicals and polymeric composites designed to determine their life span in various industrial uses;
Recycling these new materials is a source of renewable energy for communities and businesses.
Understand the various damage mechanisms that govern the fatigue problem and control aspects of material durability;
Numerical simulation and experimental study of formation by plastic deformation in industrial problems;
Study the dynamic impact of structures made up of new materials to control the impact of vibration when placed in service;
Study of mechanisms governing friction of materials;
Analysis of non - linear behavior of structures.
In addition, the objectives of our laboratory project include the following:
Training of doctoral and master's students specializing in composite structures and innovative materials;
Responding to skills training needs through new LMD reforms in Algerian universities by proposing and re-evaluating relevant courses;
Exchange of experiences in the fields of research, education and industrial know-how;
Establishing cooperative links between our laboratories and foreign laboratories working in the same field and developing the same topics;
Organizing international conferences on composite materials and structures;
Publish the results of our laboratory research in internationally renowned journals.
