    Summary of Expertise

    Actually, he is ExoMars system engineer. Never the less he arrived in AeroSekur to perform trajectories analysis on parachutes systems and to build a software with a GUI, to do this. Starting from this, he has handled different problems regarding body dynamic, orbital decay for deorbiting system, buoyancy analytical code for IXV ESA program. To try to go in deep he has arrived to the statistical methods, like Monte Carlo method. In this period he is interested in FSI calculation with Ls Dyne to investigate the flow around the canopy and inflation time and structural problems.

    Analytical and strong calculation is for him always a challenge.
