Innovative topology optimization techniques for the design of 3D-printable structures and materials

In collaboration with Thales Alenia Space Italia, MOX has developed a new technology based on advanced mathematical algorithms for the topology optimization of mechanical components, in a finite element setting. The resulting configurations are characterized by lightness and high structural performances, while exhibiting free-form features particularly suited for 3D printing […]

High-order hybrid Computational Aero-Acoustics

  In the framework of a joint PhD between the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DMEC) and the Department of Mathematics (DMAT), Alberto Artoni is developing a high-order hybrid Computational Aero-Acoustics simulation tool coupling the spectral element solver SPEED and the OpenFOAM CFD library. The activity involves a multi-disciplinary research group […]
