Research team for the development of planned maintenance of ship systems work in the field of marine engineering, specifically in fault analysis, reliability assessments and maintenance optimization of ship systems and machinery including analyze, dinamical modeling, evaluation and create a solution for the optimum maintenance interval of ships systems.
IRDL's ambition is to play, in the short term, an even more important role at the regional, national and international levels in the resolution of current issues related to the engineering of materials and systems used in the industrial sectors related to automotive, energy, aeronautics, health, transport and more particularly all areas in dynamic interaction with the marine environment, such as shipbuilding and offshore, marine energies.
