Thesis type THEORETICAL/EXPERIMENTAL

Description There is growing hazard of tree collapse due to sudden tilting under wind loads or simple mechanical againg. This phenomenon already caused a lot of damage and casualties in italian cities, also due to climate change and more frequent strong hurricanes., The idea is to define an innovative methodology to identify stiffness and strength of the tree trunk and root structure by means of automatic sensor monitoring able to indicate warning and alert to the city managers. The activity will be carried in collaboration with Torino Municipality.
