Curriculum

Michele Zappalorto- Short CV

Michele Zappalorto has worked for about 15 years in the field of composite and nanocomposite materials and has a consistent spectrum of publications on these topics. His scientific and research interests are focused on the study of the structural response and the damage mechanics of composites and nanocomposites, and on the development of predictive models to describe the mechanical and physical behaviour of this class of materials. In particular, understanding and describing the fatigue and fracture behaviour of composite and nanocomposite materials and the study of stress distributions in composite laminates are of primary interest, as well as modelling of the toughening mechanisms and multifunctional response in composites and nanocomposites.

Area di ricerca

L’attività di ricerca di Michele Zappalorto è stata prevalentemente orientata alla modellazione teorica e numerica, affiancata però anche da attività di validazione di carattere sperimentale.
Il principio che ha ispirato le diverse ricerche condotte dallo scrivente è stato il tentativo di sviluppare teorie solide ed affidabili di supporto alla progettazione strutturale di componenti meccanici, criccati o intagliati, realizzati sia in materiali tradizionali, come acciaio o leghe di alluminio, sia in materiali innovativi, come compositi e nanocompositi.
L’attività svolta può essere utilmente suddivisa nei seguenti fronti:
-Analisi della resistenza a fatica di giunzioni saldate;
-Studio analitico e numerico dei campi di tensione elastici ed elastoplastici indotti da intagli di varia forma in componenti piani e tridimensionali;
-Analisi teorica e sperimentale delle proprietà meccaniche di materiali compositi e nanocompositi a matrice polimerica;
-Compositi multifunzionali per il monitoraggio dell'integrità strutturale: sviluppo, modellazione e applicazioni industriali.

Tesi proposte

Gli studenti interessati a svolgere le tesi sulle tematiche di Meccanica dei Materiali e progettazione meccanica avanzata sono pregati di contattare personalmente il docente per fissare un colloquio in cui verranno presentate le proposte di tesi attive.
