Gianluca Chiappini



Research Areas

The main topic of the research activity is in the field of the Mechanical Design and Mechanics of Materials, with particular attention to deformation measurement with optical techniques, to modeling and characterization, static, dynamic and cyclical, of the mechanical properties of materials, both from theoretical point of view that through experimental tests and the analysis of structures using Finite Elements.
The research activity carried out for the characterization of the materials was based on inverse calibration techniques, both analytical and numerical, and on the application of innovative methods such as the Virtual Fields Method.
