Research at structural concrete laboratory

Development and analysis of innovative structures

Innovative projects and structure conceived by the head of the Laboratory have been the object of scientific research. In the past, these have focused on submerged bridges and underspanned structures. Presently, a research on the stability of thin shell structures is under way.
