Siegfried Fouvry

Siegfried Fouvry is currently Director of Research CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Sientifique) at LTDS laboratory of Ecole Centrale de Lyon. He received his engineering undergraduate degree from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 1992 and his Ph.D Thesis under the direction of Professor. L. Vincent in 1997. Since 2015 he had the responsibility of the tribology research group of the LTDS laboratory. Author of more than 130 papers and 3 patents, he was awarded of the HIRN (1998) and Mandel (2000) prizes from the French Mechanical Society.  More recently he received the 2017 Ragnar Holm scientific achievement award from IEEE Holm organization for his research work concerning fretting wear damage in electrical contacts.  His main research work focuses on the experimental investigation and modelling of fretting damages including the quantification of the fretting sliding conditions, the analysis of local friction coefficient, the quantification of surface wear through a friction energy wear approach and the prediction of fretting cracking risk using non local fatigue modelling. A major interest of his research concerns the fretting wear damage modelling developing a local approach of friction energy concepts.  His current research focuses on coupling strategies between micro mechanical investigations of fretted interfaces and debris layer and modelling of fretting wear processes including tribo-oxidation phenomena.
