Personal profile

Research interests

Antonio Pellegrino is a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath.

His expertise focuses on the development of novel experimental apparatus for measuring the mechanical response of engineering materials at high strain rates. His research concentrates on studying the effects of strain rate and the environment on the response of lightweight reinforced polymers, titanium alloys, and naturally occurring materials.

He is also interested in applications of artificial intelligence in solid mechanics and materials modelling.

In the recent past, he has developed a novel combined loading tension-torsion Hopkinson Bar capable of controlling the loading history for both direct and shear stresses.

Other research interest include the mechanical behaviour of biological materials such as human and animal eye lenses.
