Dr. Vincenzo Moramarco has been a Lecturer at the Department of Mechanics, Mathematics and Management at the Politecnico di Bari since April 2017. In 2010 he received the PhD title (Doctor Europaeus) in Bioengineering and Biomechanical Engineering from Scuola Interpolitecnica di Dottorato (Turin). His research activities are mainly focused on the experimental mechanical characterization and numerical modelling of materials both under static and dynamic load conditions. His work deals with various families of materials (e.g. polymers, metals, foams, biological hyper-elastic materials, sandwich panels and materials obtained by additive manufacturing techniques). He is familiar with several experimental techniques (e.g. thermography, optical methods, X-ray diffractometry) to measure stress, deformation and residual stresses of materials and components.
