Welcome to the Clément Ader Institute (ICA, CNRS UMR 5312) website.

ICA is a research laboratory that focuses on the study of structuressystems and mechanical processesOur research activities are intimately linked to those in the engineering industry. A special attention is paid to projects in the fields of aeronauticsspacetransportation and energyOur work focuses generally on behavior modelinginstrumentation and study of the durability of structures or products. An important part of our research focuses on composite materials, which is now widely used in structures.
