We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
EUROPLEXUS is a computer code for the simulation of fast transient fluid-structure interaction problems. It is co-owned by JRC and CEA and is developed jointly by the co-owners plus the members of a Consortium (currently including EDF and ONERA), and a number of Universities. Its application field ranges from blast analysis to assess strategic building vulnerability, to safety of power plants, chemical plants, transportation (blast in tunnels, crash), maritime (under-water explosions and impacts), design of the protection of critical infrastructure against terrorist attacks.
