About this research group:

We work on design, analysis and optimization of lightweight structures. 

Currenlty developing methods to assess crashworthiness in the preliminary design of unconventional aircraft (unconventional configurations and unconventional fuels); and on exploiting the maximum strength of available materials in designs that allow post-buckling.
