CARRERA UNIFIED FORMULATION
Refined one-, two- and three-dimensional models can be derived using a compact, unified formulation.
COMPOSITES
Advanced structural models are able to predict complex stress field, a step forward in the composite materials analysis
MULTIFIELD ANALYSIS
Fully-coupled multifield analyses including: piezoelectric and magnetostrictive materials, thermal and moisture effetcs
AEROELASTICITY AND FLUID-STRUCTURE INTERACTION
Development of advanced aeroelastic models for static and dynamic aeroelastic analyses of wings, panels and rotating blades
AIRCRAFT AND SPACECRAFT DESIGN
Refined structural moldes for the analysis of complex structures
ROTOR-DYNAMICS
Refined one-dimensional models can be a valuable alternative to three-dimensional models in the analysis of rotating blades, discs and shafts
BIOMECHANICS
Refined computational models, based on CUF, have been used in the solution of classical bio-mechanical problems
DISSEMINATION
Our work can be found in hundreds of scientific papers and in many books
BEST THEORY DIAGRAMS
The BTD is a tool to edit an arbitrarily given theory to get a lower number of terms for a given error or to increase the accuracy while keeping the computational costs constant.

Dr. Giunta received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering in 2008 at the Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He is currently senior R&D engineer at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology. Over the last years, he has been working on the development of advanced methods and tools for the multi-scale thermo-piezo-mechanical modelling and simulation of composite, sandwich and functionally graded materials and structures (beams, plates and shells) accounting for failure. He also has been working on the finite element method as well as meshless approaches. He has been the principal investigator of the FNR CORE project FUNCTIONALLY (C09/MS/05). He supervised two Ph.D. students. Dr. Giunta serves as peer reviewer for several international journals and national funding agencies. Amongst the others, he has co-authored about 40 Scopus referenced papers and a book on higher-order beam models. His full CV can be found here.
