My research activity is in the field of Mechanical Design and Mechanics of Materials, with a special focus to material mechanical characterization and modelling in quasi-static, dynamic and cyclic conditions. My studies concern both the theoretical and experimental testing points of view, and structural analysis by means of the Finite Element Method.
The characterization process often involves inverse calibration techniques, both analytical and numerical, of the most appropriate constitutive model present in literature. In many cases it was necessary to modify the model to adapt it to the particular material characteristic studied.
