Digital Stone: Robotic Construction of a Masonry Arch Bridge

Stone bridges and buildings were widely built up until the 1920s. They last for hundreds - and in many cases thousands of years, for example those built by the Romans. Read more

18 PhD programmes

Politecnico di Torino is an international University where traditions and future, past and modernity are interlinked. It covers the fields of Engineering and Architecture, with excellence in education, training and research as well as performing high levels of internationalization, innovation and entrepreneurship. Read more

Digital technologies for Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructures

The PhD student will work closely with our industrial partners to develop innovative digital tools and methodologies for improving the resilience and sustainability of critical infrastructure. Read more

Stainless steel joints in dissipative zones of earthquake resistant structures

To accommodate the detrimental effects of severe earthquakes without collapse, earthquake resisting structures rely on energy dissipation via stable hysteretic response of ductile structural components. Read more

The effects of cross winds on the aerodynamics of high-speed trains

As a train moves through the air, it generates a slipstream which can result in highly turbulent local wind fields. These turbulent flows can have a detrimental impact on infrastructure, trackside workers and passengers on platforms. Read more

Modelling the economic impacts of non-regulated road transport safety in the Global South

The growth of countries of the Global South may rely on various transport modes, referred to as irregular, informal, para-transit, and non-regulated transport, that do not conform to international standards. Read more

Methods of estimation of pedestrian flow suitable for low and middle income countries

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective. Read more

3D-printable fibre-reinforced low-carbon concrete for additive construction

3D concrete printing (3DCP) can allow freeform construction without the use of expensive formwork, but the current progress is limited by the range of printable concretes and reinforcing methods. Read more

Development of low-cost ultra-high performance low-carbon concrete

According to the Portland Cement Association (PCA), ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) is ‘‘a high-strength, ductile material formulated by combining Portland cement, silica fume, quartz flour, fine silica sand, high range water reducer, water, and steel or organic fibres. Read more

Effective infrastructure measures to improve pedestrian safety at unsignalised crossings

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective. Read more

Strain-hardening geopolymer composites for sustainable and durable construction

Fiber-reinforced strain-hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) are a unique class of fiber-reinforced concrete exhibiting a pseudo strain-hardening behavior in tension after first cracking, accompanied by multiple cracking up to relatively high strain levels. Read more

Economic modelling of gender issues in road transport

The inclusion of gender issues in road transport has been long recognised. Therefore it appears necessary that effective road transport policies should address gender issues sufficiently. Read more

Distinct Element Modelling of masonry structures

A large number of residential and historical structures in the UK and around the world are made of masonry. Due to the low tensile strength and brittle response of these materials, as well as their deterioration (due to aging), masonry structures are particularly vulnerable to natural and man-made hazards.
