Caterina Casavola

Polytechnic University of BariItaly

Prof. Casavola is a full professor of Mechanical Design at Politecnico di Bari and she teaches Design of Innovative Materials, Experimentation on Aerostructures and Experimental Mechanics. Prof Casavola’s research activity is concerned with mechanical characterization of innovative materials, experimental stress analysis on real components (1:1 scale) and in situ inspection, study of residual stress generation, evolution and measurements (hole drilling method both with strain gage rosette and ESPI, X-Ray diffractometer, Barkhausen noise), and monitoring of electronic board and components by means of speckle interferometry. Prof. Casavola is the Scientific Director of the Laboratory of Static and Dynamic tests, Laboratory of Residual Stresses, Laboratory of Experimental Stress Analysis, Laboratory EMILIA (Experimental Mechanics Integrated Laboratory In Aerospace), and the Laboratory of Telemetry at Politecnico di Bari.
