    Structural engineer Avio s.p.a, Colleferro (Roma) - Internship

    I was involved in three different design activities:

    1) Trade – off base cover design for Vega C: different configuration and different materials (aluminium, carbon-epoxy fabric, and sandwich) are analyzed in order to realize a preliminary design of the base cover used in the A1 and A2 stage of the new European launcher Vega C. The main items is the minimization of manufacturing cost. The following activities have been performed:
    - Structural linear analysis, modal analysis, buckling analysis of different configuration
    with Nastran/Patran tool
    - Non linear analysis of non-metallic structural part (thermal blanket) with Dytran
    - Cost analysis
    - Grip joint design
    - Documentation and result presentation for Vega C launcher PDR
    2) Design MLI support for the 12th launcher Vega: in the 4th stage of Vega launcher there are some supports used as interface between the thermal assy and the AVUM structure. Actually they are realized in aluminium but in order to minimize the cost it’s necessary to develop a new design in carbon – epoxy fabric. The following activities has been performed:
    - Structural linear analysis, modal analysis, buckling analysis with Nastran/Patran tool
    - Cost analysis
    - Change Proposal documentation and result presentation.
    3) Preliminary design analysis of the raceways for VEGA C in carbon epoxy fabric materials. Actually they are realized in aluminium but in order to have a simpler design the use of fabric material is taken into account. The following activity has been performed:
    - Structural linear analysis and modal analysis with Nastran/Patran tool

    September 2011 - January 2015 Master degree in space engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”

    Student at the master course in space engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”.  During my master degree programm I fucused my preparation mainly on propulsion system and structures problems. I finished all the exams on February 2014 and then I started to work on my master thesis. The topic of my thesis is the development of a cubesat in composite materials (carbon epoxy fabric). I performed static and dynamic structural analysis with FEM simulator (Adina), I optimized the design, and then I realized it at the university laboratory of Aerospace Composite. My thesis advisor is Paolo Gaudenzi that was my professor of Space Construction and Thermal Problem.
    Total mark of the master degree is 109/110

    September 2007 – July 2011 Bachelor degree in aerospace engineering at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”

    During my bachelor degree I studied the basis of aeronautical and space engineering (like aerospace materials, aerospace propulsion, aerodynamics, aerospace technologies and so on) and obviously the classical subject of engineering.
    Thesis: I discussed a thesis on the new generation thermal barrier coating for aircraft engine and I took my bachelor degree in July 2011.

    September 2002 – June 2007 scientific high school in Cascia, and at the end I have taken a diploma witha total mark of 100/100 in July 2007. During high school I have studied English language for five years, and in the first two years I have studied also French language
