My research work is part of the concrete life cycle through the study of the durability of reinforced concrete / prestressed concrete structures in aggressive environments, then the characterization of inert construction and demolition waste including concrete, and finally the design of alternative materials from recycled aggregates. This applied research is based on a scientific experimental and numerical approach of reactive transfers in cohesive or non-cohesive granular media. It is also a social approach aimed at better preservation of natural resources, better protection of the coast and built heritage, and finally, it is a contribution to the development of new circular, local and sustainable pathways.
