2006-2017: System and Software Consulting, Paris/France & Bucharest/Romania. Commissioners in Japan: Nippon Steel Corporation (NSC), Advanced Simulation Technology of Mechanics (ASTOM) Corporation.

Study of the equations of Mathematical Physics (Einstein, Maxwell, Schrödinger, Dirac, Laplace, Transport, Continuity) in differential, integral, variational and distributional form and suggesting the design of calculi allowing symbolical syntactic specification and numerical semantic modelling, in particular also for the equations of Continuum Mechanics.

Study of the systems of partial differential and algebraic equations which describe the plastic behaviour of cristaline materials, in order to validate the initial and boundary conditions.

Study and adoption of the usage of super-elements in Finite Element Methods applied to cylindrically symmetric models in order to significantly reduce the computation time.

Study and recommendation of the additive symmetric-rotational decomposition method for 3D large rotational deformations appearing for instance in the fabrication process of car wheel rims.

Recommendations concerning the implementation of vectorisation and parallelization techniques in Finite Element Methods.

1994-1997 System and Software Development, Chantilly/France. Commisioners in France: Renault Recherche Innovation, Peugeot-Citroën and Eurocopter/EADS.

Software environment: using and extending the procedural language and toolboxes of MatLab 4.2 and 4.5 of which  several licenses were accorded by the commissioners, not including a license for the expensive SimuLink functional blocksets.

Hardware environment: a self-installed and -configured dual boot french Windows 95 and french-adapted, german Suse Linux systems accessing common data.

Paradigms: rapidly understanding and extending an implemented event programming approach, and subsequently designing and implementing a suitable object based extension using the present constructs of the language which was to be thoroughly enriched according to a consistent object-based approach two years later on.

Toolboxes: Signal processing, Optimisation, Splines, Interpolation, Approximation, 2D & 3D Graphics, Graphical User Interface. 

Language usage and extensions:

Developing a minimal profiling toolbox, vectorisation of the essential parts of the project, developing in particular a Tensor Spline Toolbox from the existing Spline Tolbox.

Developing a minimal input/output toolbox that abstaracts the interaction with the user through file and command line interfaces.

Developing a minimal debugging toolbox that allows to test and set parameters of the functions in the entire call stack up to the environment level.

Developing a minimal toolbox that allows to interactively label, transform and animate 2D/3D graphics.

Participating 1995 in Paris at a MathWorks presentation by the designers of the existing MATLAB 4.5 language and toolboxes about the present state and the possible future extensions of the MATLAB language. Communicating with insistence my own concern about the necessity and benefit of an object-based or -orientated extension of the language, suggestions that contributed during the next two years to a complete overhauling of the language according to this view.

Evaluating and testing the ability of the language to lend itself for developing a toolbox allowing to interactively set and get the properties of graphical elements and to interactively design graphical user interfaces. Both concerns were addressed and implemented by the designers of the language during the next three years.

Modelling and Programming:

Implementing convex and non-linear optimization extensions for the numeric evaluation of the characteristics of signals which are recorded by vibrational surveyance of test-cars.

Study of the open and closed source environments and packages available on the Internet for the simulation of crashes recommending DynaCrash as the one that suits car crash simulations best.

Participating at the mathematical modelisation of the vibrational dynamics of polyurethane seats in helicopters.

1990 Scientific Software Development, LPMTM, Grenoble University. Solvers for Algebraic Systems of Finite Element Method (FEM) Simulations.

Analysis, implementation, testing, recommendation and adoption for 2D models of iterative Conjugate Gradient methods for solving the algebraic systems generated by 2D Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations.

Analysis and recommendation for 3D models of advanced techniques for exactly solving the sparse or structured linear systems of equations by exploiting the reduced incidence degree of mesh elements or the simplicial complex modularity of the mesh of the algebraic systems generated by 3D Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations.

1987-1991 Hardware and Software Development, Institute for System Control Engineering (ISW), Universität Stuttgart. Control of Optical Periphery by Embedded Microprocessor Prototypes in Industrial Robots.

Developing a Turbo-C and Turbo-PASCAL alphanumeric library on PCs for the movement detection and control of optical periphery and assembling it for the embedded microprocessor prototype. Evaluating the benefit of an object-based or -oriented design and of the acquisition of a C++ native compiler for PCs in order to design more rapidly and use more flexibly the alphanumeric/graphical library.

Designing and developing an I/O library extension for the C micro-compiler of an embedded microprocessor prototype.

Programming a VAX FORTRAN to ANSI FORTRAN 77 cross-complier in order to translate an existing ample library for the control of a network of industrial robots trough a DEC workstation.
