The Institut National des science Appliquées de Lyon or INSA Lyon is a Grande École d'Ingénieurs. INSA Lyon is ranked among the top universities of Science and Technology in Europe, pluridisciplinary and international, at the heart of the European Higher Education Area.The school was founded in 1957 to train highly qualified engineers, support continuing education, and conduct research and testing. The five-year curriculum aims at training engineers who possess human qualities and are well versed in the primary areas of science and engineering. Graduates from INSA are called "Insaliens".The education is organised as follows: the first cycle: highly selective, students acquire the necessary scientific background for future engineering studies. the second cycle: students are given the choice between 12 fields of specialisation. They may pursue a Phd upon completion of the 5-year curriculum.The university is located on the La Doua-Lyontech campus, home of science-related universities. La Doua is located in Villeurbanne, a suburb of Lyon. Wikipedia.

Annual Review of Materials Research | Year: 2012
This article reviews studies in which X-ray tomography has been used to characterize the cellular microstructure or the deformation mechanisms of highly porous materials. The technique is suitable for imaging these materials with much detail. Such images can also be used to quantify the micro-structure (wall thickness and cell size distribution and tortuosity of the porous network). Finally, the methods available to produce finite element meshes from the three-dimensional images are presented and discussed in light of one example. © Copyright ©2012 by Annual Reviews.
