Mr. Raffaele Vinciguerra
PhD student and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Early Stage Researcher
Mr. Raffaele Vinciguerra graduated from the Universitá degli Studi di Napoli "Federico II" in 2016, with a MSc in Mechanical Engineering. He started working as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Early Stage Researcher at Bombardier Aerospace Belfast, and a PhD student within the Advanced Composites Research Group at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of Queen's University Belfast in September 2017. His PhD research aims to determine and develop a new process capable of determining the behaviour of a complex structure under the action of non-static loads with a view to predicting the in-service conduct. More specificially, his study defines a numerical procedure to find the behaviour of a composite structure under high strain rate load conditions.
