The Laboratory PITAGOR (Laboratory of Technical Innovations Applied to Reinforcement Geosynthetics) associate the research team GRG of the laboratory LGCIE of the INSA LYON and the TEXINOV company within the framework of the program LabCom financed by the French Agency of the Research. This laboratory aims at leading a collaborative applied research in the field of the geosynthetics of reinforcement.
The aim of this new laboratory is to develop innovative geosynthetics and experimental activities to characterize them. This laboratory will have been destined for four main targets:
- improve and complete the laboratory characterization tests of TEXINOV and LGCIE, allowing the development of standardized procedures to validate the new developed geosynthetics,
- improve the experimental research activity and the numerical modelling in the LGCIE team,
- participate to the formation of students of INSA Lyon
