11 departments and a network of 3 Faculties of Engineering and Architecture, with a central administration and management. The researchers working at the Structural Engineering section of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (D.I.C.A.) develop their research activity in the following fields: computational mechanics; structural monitoring; structural restoration; earthquake hazard; seismic protection systems, and are involved in many national and international projects.
The laboratory “M. Salvati” for materials and structure testing, that is going to be transferred to a new structure thus becoming the greatest laboratory in the South of Italy, can perform dynamic tests on civil structures, as well as tests for improving the earthquake resistance of constructions.
