Aerospace Session

Posted by on Feb 6, 2018 in News | 0 comments

Modern composite and metallic lightweight structures are extensively used as primary load carrying structures and are often more complex, more integrated and more critical than in the past. For this reason there is a stringent need to improve simulation tools, experimental approaches and update inspection and maintenance procedures. Within the aerospace fields, as well as in any transportation engineered system, one of the most critical focus is to guarantee the safety for both persons and components at the minimum cost.
The aerospace session organized within the DRAF2024 conference is aimed at presenting up-to-date research on the most challenging applications for aerospace applications and in general for other transportation vehicles. Contributions on theoretical, numerical, and experimental issues are all welcome. Papers showing examples of structural design, verification and testing are particularly encouraged.

More specifically, suitable topics for this Special Session include but are not limited to:

• Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization of Structures and Materials
• Design / Calibration / Performance of Ground Test Facilities & Subsystems
• Advances in Test Techniques & Test Management
• Non Destructive Testing and Characterization
• Structural Health Monitoring and Management
• Dynamic testing techniques; sensors and actuators
• Design, Analysis and Certification of Aerospace Structures
• Advanced Computational Models for Composite Structures
• Buckling, Fatigue and Fracture of Structures
• Impact Damage and Crashworthiness in Composite Structures
• Impact dynamics and crashworthiness
• Composite Laminate and Structural Optimization
• Other Topics in Structures

Interested authors are kindly invited to submit their contributions by e-mail to Francesco Saverio Marulo ([email protected]) and Fabrizio Ricci ([email protected])
