Nontrivial experiments and advanced modeling to assess joints and interfaces for civil and industrial applications
Mechanical response of joints or interfaces can be effectively assessed by combining synergistically nontrivial tests, mechanical modeling and inverse procedures. Alternative measures, for instance kinematic measurements provided by Digital Image Correlation (DIC), and non-conventional experiments specifically conceived to generate stress states as close as possible to the expected service conditions, can lead to improve finite element modeling and enrich the information available for the identification of interface parameters. This strategy can be extended to diverse scales and several engineering contexts, as outlined with reference to a few meaningful applications developed by the author, concerning FRP-reinforced masonry elements, adhesively bonded assemblies for airplanes, high temperature metal-ceramic joining in energy plants and space vehicles.
Biographical sketch. Roberto Fedele, born in 1973, is currently associate professor of Solid Mechanics at Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy), Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In 2017 he got the habilitation as full professor. His main research interests concern experimental and computational mechanics of materials and structures in multidisciplinary frameworks.
