Noël Challamel is Professor at University of South Brittany (Université de Bretagne Sud – Lorient, France). He is the head of a research team in Civil Engineering and Multiscale Mechanics. His research at University of South Brittany mainly concerns civil engineering, theoretical and applied mechanics problems, with a particular emphasis on scale effects, structural mechanics, stability, vibrations and material modeling (Continuum Damage Mechanics and Plasticity). He is the co- author of three books in the field of mechanics and civil engineering. He has published over a hundred papers in high standard journals. He is often consulted as a referee in more than 50 international journals in Civil Engineering, Physics or Mechanics. He is member of the editorial board of 11 international journals, and is associate editor of the Journal of Engineering Mechanics, one of the leading journals published by the American Society of Civil Engineering. He is also editor and head of the collection « Solid Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering » published by ISTE Wiley.
