My research project
Uncertainty Investigation in Microvibration Predictions
The aim of this project is the investigation of the effects of structural uncertainties in microvibration predictions. In particular, source-related and transfer function-related variability on the satellite are studied in order to account for both contributions in the analysis.
University roles and responsibilities
- Responsible for Environmental Testing (Shock and Vibration)
Salvatore obtained his Bachelor Degree in Aerospace Engineering (2014) and Master Degree in Space Engineering (2016) from Politecnico di Milano. He then started his PhD at Surrey Space Centre (University of Surrey) in October 2016.. His research is mainly interested in microvibration characterisation and analysis. His research involves the study of microvibration source mechanisms, such as Reaction Wheel, and the evaluation of their effects on the performance of the satellite. In addition, he is also interested in the quantification of structural uncertainties and the development of a reliable and cost-effective tool for their predictions.
His doctorate project is sponsored by Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) and Airbus DS
The PhD project is in collaboration with Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) and Airbus DS.
