Salvatore Brischetto

Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Politecnico di Torino, Italy


After earning his degree in aerospace engineering at the Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy, in 2005, Salvatore Brischetto received his Ph.D. degree in aerospace engineering from the same university and in mechanics (Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense, Nanterre, France) in 2009. He won the Excellence Prize for Ph.D. Students in 2008 and the Prize for Young Researchers in 2011 at the Politecnico di Torino. Dr. Brischetto worked as a Research Assistant in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino, from 2006 to 2010, and has been serving as an Assistant Professor in the same department since 2010. His main research topics are smart structures, composite materials, multifield problems, FGMs, thermal and hygroscopic stress analysis, carbon nanotubes, inflatable structures, plate and shell finite elements, and 3D solutions. He is the author of more than 70 articles on these topics, more than 40 of which have been published in international journals. He serves as a Reviewer for more than 30 international journals, such as Composite Structures, Journal of Applied Mechanics, and Journal of Composite Materials. He has been Guest Editor for Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures for the Special Issues Modeling and Analysis of Functionally Graded Beams, Plates, and Shells, Parts I and II, and he has also organized the special session “Thermomechanical Analysis of Composite and Advanced Structures for the International Conference on Mechanics of Nano-, Micro-, and Macrocomposite Structures” (Torino, June 18&#x201320, 2012). Dr. Brischetto has been a Teaching Assistant at the Politecnico di Torino for courses on computational aeroelasticity, structures for aerospace vehicles, nonlinear analysis of aerospace structures, and principle of structural mechanics. In 2014, he will be an Adjunct Professor for the course “Aeronautic Law and Human Factors and Safety” at Politecnico di Torino.
