    M.Sc. in Aeronautical Engineering, "Sapienza" Universitá di Roma, final mark: 110/110 cum laude (equivalent to First-Class Honours with Distinction).

    Thesis title: Theoretical and numerical approaches for impact load identification on an aerospace structure. Correlation with experimental data. Advisors: Prof. Franco Mastroddi, Ms. Claudia Di Trapani (Avio S.p.A.), Mr. Mauro Linari (MSC.Software)

    The thesis arose under a request by Avio S.p.A. in order to investigate an impact issue on the VEGA launcher’s first stage solid rocket motor (P80). The objective was to develop a procedure to identify impact load and position given the experimental acceleration data referred to the phenomenon. Data were analyzed by means of theoretical tools, then numerical simulations were run on a FE Model of the motor to maximize the numerical - experimental correlation: a sensitivity analysis and an optimization process led to the impact load and location, and a fully nonlinear explicit dynamic analysis served to verify the obtained results, which were found to be successfully correlated to the experimental data.
