The Mechanics and Rheology laboratory (LMR) was created in 1990 by the engineering school of Tours university (Polytech' Tours) and INSA Centre-Val de Loire.

The fields of expertise of LMR are:
  • Characterization (identification of behavior at micro, nano and macro scale) and mechanical modeling of materials (elastomers, metals, polymers, composites, ceramics).
  • Materials fatigue (study of behavior and identification of the fundamental mechanisms of fatigue damage).
  • Acoustic vibration, wave propagation and vibration monitoring.
