Laser Shock Peening: stato dell'arte e prospettive

by Dr. Leonardo Orazi , UniMoRe

At 10:30 a.m. Ground floor, meeting room - CSHR (IIT), Corso Trento 21, 10129 Torino

Leonardo Orazi è Ricercatore di Tecnologie e Sistemi di Lavorazione presso il Dipartimento di Scienze e Metodi per l’Ingegneria dell'Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia. Titolare dei corsi di Tecnologia Meccanica, Tecnologie Speciali e Sistemi Integrati di Lavorazione presso i corsi di Laurea Meccatronica e Laurea Gestionale.
Dal 2005 si occupa di lavorazioni laser in particolare di integrazione di sorgenti laser su centri di lavoro a 3/5 assi per la fabbricazione di tessiture su superfici complesse; la messa a punto di metodi per la determinazione automatica dei parametri di processo nel laser texturing e laser milling in funzione del materiale in lavorazione e del set-up del sistema ottico; lo sviluppo di modelli tridimensionali per la simulazione dei processi di ablazione laser con impulsi al nanosecondo; lo sviluppo di modelli numericamente efficienti per la simulazione degli effetti della piuma di plasma e di modelli per predire l'indurimento laser di acciai in presenza di geometrie e distribuzione di potenza qualsiasi, nonché di percorsi sovrapposti.
Si è occupato inoltre di sviluppo di modelli per la simulazione del processo di Laser Shot Peening a caldo con l'introduzione di modelli meccanici innovativi e la predizione della densità di dislocazioni generate.
Prima del 2005 si è occupato di funzioni avanzate per la modellazione di modelli CAD ibridi costituiti da superfici parametriche a geometrie non strutturate provenienti da sistemi di scansione. Le funzioni sono state raccolte in un motore geometrico di deformazione inserito all'interno di soluzioni CAD verticali per il footware.

Physics-based modeling and simulation of planetary missions

At 03:00 p.m. Ground floor, meeting room - CSHR (IIT), Corso Trento 21, 10129 Torino

Multi-physics simulation meets critical mission needs throughout the spacecraft design, test and verification and operations phases of missions. It allows the use of high-fidelity dynamics models for elements of a spacecraft system, without sacrificing simulation speed, enabling more reliable flight software design and testing, reduced development costs and reduced mission risks.

The modeling and simulation techniques discussed in this talk are based upon state-of-the-art computational algorithms from the Spatial Operator Algebra mathematical framework for multibody dynamics. The Spatial Operator Algebra is a mathematical approach for modeling the dynamical behavior of complex, articulated collections of bodies interacting with each other in free-space or in contact with the environment. This talk describes the various elements of this simulation framework, as well as several recent applications in different physical domains.


Dr. Marco B. Quadrelli

Dr. Quadrelli is an internationally renowned expert in modeling for dynamics and control of complex space systems. He has a Masters Degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT and a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech. He was a visiting scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and a lecturer at the Caltech Graduate Aeronautical Laboratories. After joining NASA JPL in 1997 he has contributed to a number of flight projects including the Cassini-Huygens Probe, Deep Space One, the Mars Aerobot Test Program, the Mars Exploration Rovers, the Space Interferometry Mission, the Autonomous Rendezvous Experiment, and the Mars Science Laboratory, among others. He has been the Attitude Control lead of the Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter Project, and the Integrated Modeling Task Manager for the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna.  He has led or participated in several independent research and development projects in the areas of computational micromechanics, dynamics and control of tethered space systems, formation flying, inflatable apertures, hypersonic entry, precision landing, flexible multibody dynamics, guidance, navigation and control of spacecraft swarms, terramechanics, and precision pointing for optical systems. He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics, and of the journal Computer Modeling in Engineering Sciences. Dr. Quadrelli is here today representing himself, not his organization.
