Research topics

  • Development of machine learning algorithms for the prediction of the mechanical behaviour of materials used for structural applications.
  • Research on non-destructive methodologies for the assessment of the residual properties of damaged composite materials.
  • Research on the fatigue behavior of metallic materials produced through additive manufacturing processes: - analysis of the influence of defects on fatigue response. - analysis of the influence of process parameters on the fatigue response. - analysis of the influence of heat treatments on the fatigue response. - analysis of the influence of notches on fatigue response.
  • Research on the mechanical response of lattice structures produced through Additive Manufacturing processes.
  • Research on the Very High Cycle Fatigue (VHCF) response of metallic materials: analysis of size-effect and on the influence of defects.
