Assistant Professor

Davide Leonetti


He graduated at Federico II University of Naples in Mechanical Engineering defending a Thesis about a Strength analysis of a railway switch manoeuvring system for high-speed tracks, awarded by CIFI (Italian Board of Railway Engineers) in 2016. Currently he is a doctoral researcher supervised by Prof. J. Maljaars and Prof. H.H. Snijder. His research focuses on the required safety for fatigue of steel bridges and involves two Phd's. The aim of the research is to put forward a set of partial factors, for damage-tolerant desing against fatigue failure of steel bridges, that is derived on a probabilistic framework and on the required reliability level.
