Ludovic Gavérina

I am a postdoctoral researcher at IFSTTAR Nantes.

Research interests / field of activity

My activities are mainly related to non-destructive testing and non-destructive evaluation (thermal characterization of heterogeneous materials) for civil engineering.

  • Non-destructive testing and non-destructive evaluation
  • Infrared and thermal solutions for Infrared cameras
  • In-plane thermal diffusivity measurements
  • Inverse problems
  • Optics and laser technology
  • Image processing and computer vision

Short bio

I graduated with an engineering degree from Telecom Saint-Etienne and a master of research in optic, image and computer vision from Jean Monnet University in 2013. In 2017, I received the PhD degree (title of my thesis: “Thermal characterization of heterogeneous material by flying spot laser and infrared thermography”) in mechanical engineering from Bordeaux University under the supervision of Christophe Pradère. In 2017, I joined IFSTTAR (Nantes) for ANR Project (RESBATI).

Recent projects

  • ANR RESBATI: This is an applied research project whose objective is to develop a field measurement
    device that meets precise specifications to systematically measure the level of thermal insulation
    of building walls. The preferred metrological tool is infrared thermography.
