Diagnostic and civil engineering

Diagnostic and Civil Engineering area is responsible for technology transfer of innovative materials and technologies to civil engineering.


  • Materials and Components development for sustainable building using recycled material from Construction and Demolition industrial wastes
  • Design of reinforcement interventions and seismic upgrading with innovative materials (composite materials, shape memory alloys)
  • Physical-mechanical characterization of traditional and innovative materials, static and dynamic tests on structural elements, durability tests, thermal conductivity measurements
  • Non-destructive diagnostic tests of components and structures
  • Energy efficiency evaluation of building envelopes
  • Design and development of FRP smart devices for structural strengthening and monitoring (SHM - Structural Health Monitoring)
