Salvatore Saputo is a mechanical engineer currently working as an assistant professor at Politecnico di Torino. His main research activities involve the mechanical behaviour of composite aeronautical structures under low/high velocity impact, and the numerical and experimental investigation regarding the thermo-mechanical properties of Ni–Ti shape memory alloy used to realize powerful miniaturized actuators. He got his BSc with an activity concerning the effects that the shape relationships of a bottom-heated canal have on a controlled airflow in mixed convention. Then, he gained his MSc in December 2010 at Seconda Università Degli Studi di Napoli discussing a thesis about the optimization of skins and core of a trunk in unidirectional composite fibre material with a sandwich structure. Posteriorly, in April 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli" with a thesis concerning the development of numerical procedures for intralaminar damage evaluation in composite material induced by low-velocity impacts.
