The Department

Welcome to the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology at the Politecnico di Milano (DAER), the only university department in Italy entirely dedicated to aerospace studies. It inherits the long and successful aeronautical and space tradition that the Politecnico di Milano has fostered since the early days of air transport.

01

Experimental Labs

La.S.T. - Transport Safety Lab

The La.S.T. lab is divided in two main branches, passive and active safety. Research on passive safety began in the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology in the late ‘60s leading to the constitution of the first academic crash laboratory in Italy. Our mission is to improve transportation safety through numerical simulations and experimental activities.

02

Experimental Labs

SpLab - Space Propulsion Laboratory

The scientific activity has mostly been devoted to fundamental combustion problems of solid-phase energetic materials, from both experimental and theoretical viewpoints, with specific attention to: steady burning rates and temperature profiles, radiant ignition.

03

Experimental Labs

Aerodynamic Laboratory

The Experimental Aerodynamics Laboratory is provided with different wind tunnels of various dimensions, typology and test regimes. The complete experimental equipment allows carrying out a wide range of tests.

04

Experimental Labs

Technological Laboratory

Tech Lab is divided into three main areas: Conventional technological processes. Composite and SMART Structures. Non-Destructive testing.

05

Experimental Labs

Experimental Test Laboratory

The laboratory is able to carry out several kinds of tests: from characterization tests on simple material coupons to full-scale tests on complete structures, i.e.: Material static, dynamic and fatigue characterization tests. Static tests; buckling tests; modal analysis tests; fatigue tests. Noise active control measure tests; low-energy impact tests.
