Frédéric HEYMES


Frédéric Heymes is associate professor at IMT Mines Ales (France)

Born in France in 1975 he is a chemical engineer specialized in fluid dynamics. He achieved in 2005 a master degree at Laval University (Canada) in multiphase flows and neural networks. He received in  2005 his  PhD in Chemical Engineering at Montpellier University (France).

Since more than 15 years in IMT Mines Alès, he is working in hazardous phenomena. He was responsible for the research team Physics of Phenomena and the experimental facility Spark.

His research work focus on vapour cloud explosions, boiling expanding vapour cloud explosions (BLEVE), dust explosions and wildfires. He is currently senior researcher in the Laboratory for Risk Sciences at IMT Mines Ales.

He is an expert in large scale testing of dangerous phenomena, involving high speed instrumentation.
