His PhD research activity mainly concerns the development and implementation of numerical models for thermo-fluid dynamics and the aeroacoustics of energetic systems within open-source codes.

Capsule bio

Matteo Falone received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering in 2013 with a thesis entitled “Group contribution method for the prediction of second virial coefficients”. In 2017 he received the master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering with a thesis entitled “Thermo-fluid dynamic analysis of a catalyzed exhaust system for a four-stroke engine by CFD OpenFOAM numerical approach”. From November 2018 he is a PhD student in Industrial Engineering at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (DIISM) of Marche Polytechnic University.
