Structures

Mechanical modelling and testing of structures for the evaluation of their behaviour.

Within this field particular attention is dedicated to the design aspects, with reference also structures subjected to seismic actions and to new technologies.

The research works in general regard several issues as:

the design approach, the advanced analysis tools, the use of innovative techniques and materials, the special structures, the protection of historical heritage, the diagnostic and experimental investigations.

Structural reliability

Computational mechanics

Experimental testing, diagnosis and monitoring of structures

Historical/monumental cultural heritage

New materials and special structures

Damage and fracture mechanics

Earthquake engineering

Forensic engineering
