Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    Joint Research Centre of European Commission (November 2008-today)


    Main research activity conducted at Joint Research Centre of ISPRA is inherent ADVISE (Advanced Dynamic Validations using Integrated Simulation and Experimentation) project. ADVISE is a pre-normative project for experimental validation of computational simulations of dynamic events using full-field optical methods of shape and deformation measurement. (ADVISE Grant Agreement Nr. 218595,Theme 7: Transport Call identifier: FP7-SST-2007-RTD-1) The project will propel the EU into the leading position in the field and allow EU industry to gain a significant technological advantage. Design, Modelling, Finite Element model design and updating, Experimental Modal Analysis, Full field measurements and validation by optical methods validation are main activities conducted. JRC is task manager to develop a reference material that allows traceability and calibration of full-field optical methods of deformation measurement in cyclic, transient and non-linear dynamic events. Optical methods for deformation and strain measurement are a generic technology, which support life cycle performance, safety, and reliability assessments, and design optimisation of products, components, and devices varying in scale from micro-machines to ships. Recently, there have been considerable advances in full-field optical techniques and these have led to new instrumentation. Consequently, optical techniques form a powerful set of tools for use in evaluating the performance, reliability, and safety of primary structures and for validating computational design of such structures.The partners are Airbus (UK), Centro Richerche Fiat (Italy), Dantec Dynamics GmbH (Germany), EC Joint Research Centre, EMPA Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research, High Performance Space Structure Systems GmbH (Germany), Michigan State University (USA), University of Liverpool (UK) and the University of Patras (Greece).

    Main tasks accomplished have been:

    • Design and 3D modelling of complex structure
    • Numerical simulation by finite element model (COMSOL) and updating process of the model by experimental validation,
    • Manufacturing of the first reference material prototype,
    • Arranging of modal analysis test set-up at mechanical laboratory of JRC,
    • Arranging and participation to full field measurement session on reference material by speckle interferometry and digital image correlation.

    Main outcomes for me are:

    • Improving of technical expertise in field of structural mechanics
    • Improving of expertise on updating of finite element model by experimental validation.
    • Acquisition of knowledge in the field of calibration and standard reference design.
    • Acquisition of knowledge in the field of calibration of optical systems for displacement or strain measurement under non-static conditions, i.e. cyclic, dynamic or transient conditions.
