Danubia Adria Symposiums are focused on:

  • highlighting latest innovations, R&D and industrial activities in area of experimental methods in mechanics
  • providing forum for discussion of the latest research results, new developments of concepts and technologies, proven techniques,  as well as practical applications and standardization of the experimental methods in mechanics.


Main topics

    • Structural analyis:

      experimental tests, structural health monitoring, system identification, damage assessment, self-adaptive structures

    • Material characterization and testing:

      smart materials, residual stress, fatigue, fracture, creep

    • Biomechanics:

      biomaterials, biomechanics, medical and orthopedic devices, bio-fluid mechanics

    • Instrumentation:

      new sensors and actuators, advanced measurement systems, validation and reliability of instrumentation

    • Integration of mathematical/numerical methods with experimental mechanics
    • Recent developments in international standardization and technical regulations
    • Practical applications and case studies

The Military Hospital was built in 1863 when Trieste was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in an area of the city which, at that time, was not very inhabited. For over a century, the imposing building housed 600 beds and offered treatment and refuge to soldiers.

In the late 1980s the Hospital was closed and experienced a long period of neglect and deterioration, until a new beginning in 2006 when restoration and renovation work commenced.
