Activités de recherche :

Raffaele D’ELIA recently joined the IMT Mines Albi School of Engineering in October 2022 as Assistant Professor affiliated at the Institut Clément Ader laboratory (UMR-CNRS 5312-ICA). He received his PhD in Composite Materials Science from the IMT Mines Albi in 2014 and was appointed as a Postdoctoral fellow at the same institute in collaboration with Safran Ceramics (2014-2015). He pursued his research activities as Research Associate at the ISL – French-German Research Institute of Saint-Louis (2015-2018) and as Research Engineer at IRT Saint-Exupery, Toulouse (2018-2022). His research interests focus on the physico-chemical and thermo-mechanical characterization of composite materials, in order to model their constitutive behaviour and predict their response during their processing. Recent researches have focused on the development and characterization of polymeric foams for aerospace applications in the frame of two projects founded by Horizon 2020 Clean Sky 2 program and IRT Saint-Exupéry. In this frame R. D’ELIA worked on Out of Autoclave processing technologies coupled with thermosetting and thermoplastic foams development, dynamic mechanical analysis and functional characterization. He is currently supervising two PhD thesis on: (i) porosity analysis in RTPs composites (2022-2025) and (ii) TP foaming modelling through supercritical CO2 assisted extrusion (2023-2026). He is author and co-author of 9 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, 20 communications in international (9) and national (11) conferences.
