  • monitoring and modeling of the quality of stormwater flushing surfaces for production use and road infrastructure;
  • numerical modeling of pressurized and open pit currents;
  • technical hydrology;
  • urban drainage systems;
  • basins accomodation;
  • hydrogeological risk;
  • experimental and numerical simulation activity in biomedical engineering field (radiofrequency hepatyc ablation);
  • experimental and numerical simulation activity concerning evosive phenomena;
  • fluid dynamic behavior of valves simulation through Eulerian and Lagrangian techniques (SPH, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics);
  • fluid dynamic analysis of multiphase gas-liquid systems in the context of active sludge depuration.


 SANITARY

  • waste recovery in construction industry;
