Diagnostic and civil engineering

The area is responsible for technology transfer of innovative materials and technologies to civil engineering.


  • development of materials and components for sustainable building using recycled material, both from industrial wastes Construction and Demolition - C&D
  • design of reinforcement interventions and seismic retrofitting 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 structural strengthening and monitoring (SHM - Structural Health Monitoring)
