Geodynamics and Structure


GDS is an engineering consultancy involved in the Civil Engineering of major industrial projects or structures integrating seismic risk in France and abroad: nuclear works, large-scale industrial installations and bridges in earthquake-prone areas. GDS will provide its know-how on seismic engineering practice and will make available for the project the large inventory of international design or assessment projects that it has hosted. GDS detains one of the largest databases (if not the largest) in the world for the post-earthquake response of industrial facilities and equipment. Moreover, GDS has collaborated in several international and national research projects on the domain of Earthquake Engineering. A common aspect in all these projects is an emphasis in disseminating cutting edge academic advancements to everyday engineering practice.
