Design of aircraft and of advanced composite aerospace structures
The research activity in focalized to the numerical and experimental analysis of preliminary and detail design of traditional and innovative configuration aircrafts; furthermore the numerical and experimental analysis of advanced composite aerospace structures is also well carried on as well as the iteration fluid-structure of slender wing.
The main research areas under evaluation are:
Design, manufacturing and flight test of innovative UAV (unmanned Air Vehicles) powered by solar energy and fuel cells fueled by hydrogen
Design and Experimental tests of advanced composite aerospace structures
Aeroelastic behaviour of innovative aircraft configurations by theoretical/experimental analysis of aircraft elements
