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:
Main outcomes for me are:
Research activity at Italian Space Agency ( March-November 2008)
Fellowship researcher as a result of national selection - Research activity has been conducted about new scenarios of International Space Station utilization for Moon and Mars Exploration
Management and technical review on behalf of ASI of FLECS program(inflatable structure for International Space Station).The main aim of the project has been to design and built an innovative inflatable module for International Space Station. Technical requirements and constraints analysis of module structure, module configuration and structure design review, intermediate report review, release mechanism analysis have been main activities conducted.
