SpreadDEM team visits IRSTEA

On April 4th, 2018, a delegation of CIMNE leaded by Prof. Eugenio Oñate has visited the National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture (IRSTEA) based in Montoldre (France).

The CIMNE researchers Mercè López, Miguel Ángel Celigueta and Guillermo Casas, developers of the software code Spreaddem, attended the visit hosted by Emmanuel Piron, team leader at IRSTEA. During de visit Dr. Piron explained the research and development activities carried out at IRSTEA in the experimental testing of fertilization spreaders, both mineral and organic, and the link between tractor and soil, with the aim of evaluating tire performance and modelling soil compaction.

The PRT PEE team (IRSTEA Technology Research Platform Center for Spreading and the Environment) is developing and implementing innovative methods (simulation tools, demonstrators, test benches and tests, etc.) that encourage development and characterize the performance of technological devices in relation to research and industry stakeholders. Its research streams focus specifically on improving the fertilization machines that play a key role in the agricultural production chain and in respecting the environment.
