Activités de recherche

Matthieu Blanc obtained his Engineering Degree in Civil Engineering in 2007, a diploma delivered by ENTPE/Lyon University.

He received his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering, delivered by ENTPE/Lyon University in 2011 for research on the effects of the principal stress axes rotations in sand.

From 2011, he moved to the Gustave Eiffel University - Nantes Campus  (formerly IFSTTAR, formerly  LCPC) to work on physical modelling as a researcher in the Geotechnical Centrifuge team.

Matthieu Blanc’s current research explores themes concerned with physical modelling in geotechnics, particularly with the geotechnical centrifuge. He is working mainly on soil-structure interactions under complex loading, such as soil reinforcement, deep and shallow foundations. Recent applications are orientated towards Renewable Marine Energy foundation and anchoring systems. The ongoing challenge for each of these topics is to observe and understand the phenomena, and also to obtain appropriate experimental data to be compared to numerical or theoretical models.

Author of 16 publications in journals, he received in 2018 the Jean Kérisel prize rewarding young geotechnical engineer/researcher served by the French Soil Mechanics Society.

In 2021, he took the lead of the Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory.
