Industrial Projects
1.PI of the project with Re.Al. Service P.I.E. "Development of Decision Support System for the manage ment of environmental emergencies". The aim of the project is to develop a DDS (Decision Support Sys tem) for the management of environmental emergencies: in this context statistical analysis of historical
data are carried out and prediction algorithm are going to be developed. Moreover the DSS will include also simplified models for the simulation of

4.PI of the project with ENI E&P Division: Mathematical and Numerical modeling of plate tectonics. The project aimed at the development of new mathematical and numerical models for the simulation of plate tectonics. The first mathematical model that has been developed is a based on the
lation for the Stokes problem along with a suitable preconditioning technique have been developed in order to solve eﬃciently the problem at hand. A parallel code based on Deal.II library has been imple mented. A multiscale model for the simulation of oceanic rift has also been developed. The second step
of the project was related to the study of the continental margins in which the fluid approximation is no longer valid hence elastic eﬀects have to be included. In this sense a new family of variational time integrators for the solution of the elasticity problem has been developed, analyzed and implemented into an Octave package; moreover a preliminary GPU implementation has been realized.
5.PI of the project with COMES: Development of optimization algorithm for the production of opti cal lenses. The project aimed at the development of eﬃcient and optimized algorithm to design toric lenses. In this context a new prototype software has been developed; the algorithm has been imple mented into NC (Numeric Control) machine to produce real lenses.
6.PI of the project with filippi Lido Srl: Development of algorithm for motion capture and application to acquisition of motion of athletes". During the project computer vision algorithms have been used for developing a prototype software able to automatically capture the motion of some markers placed on the body of the athletes using simple videos as input.

9.Collaboration to the the project with ENI E&P Division: "Mathematical and Numerical modeling of salt tectonics". Various types of oil traps have been found to be associated with salt domes in subsurface geology. In this project the diapiric rise of light salt layers through a denser overburden has been modeled assuming that, in a geological time scale, salt and rocks layers behave like Newtonian fluids. A Lagrangian approach has been adopted to track the interface between layers, within the framework of a finite element space discretization. An accurate description of large deformations due to salt movement has been achieved using a grid adaptation technique based on geometrical refinement.
10.Collaboration to the project with ENEL Hydraulic and Structural Division: "Development of a software for the simulation of 3D water flows". In this project the mathematical and numerical model developed in [J2] and [J1] has been implemented into a parallel code.

Research activities
Free surface flow
In [J2] and [J1] a new finite element method for the solution of the hydrostatic 3D Shallow water equations has been proposed. The method has been also ported to parallel architectures using MPI and the results of the parallelizzation along with some applications to real cases are reported in [J3]. In order to consider a wider range of applications the hydrostatic approximation has to be removed: in [J7] a review of the math ematical models for free surface flow is reported along with a proposal for the development of a non hydro static free surface model. An eﬃcient method for the solution of the non hydrostatic model is reported in [J4] where a suitable algebraic factorization procedure is introduced: essentially the idea is to generalize to the 3D non hydrostatic free surface equations the algebraic
Multiscale and multiphysics modeling
In the context of hydraulics and hydrology there are many phenomena requiring a multiphysics or a multi scale approach to be properly described or solved. In particular the study has been focused on two issues: the surface and groundwater coupling and the multiscale modelling of free surface flow. It must be noticed that surface water and groundwater are not separate and independent and hence, in order to simulate
Dynamics of floating bodies
In [J12] a fluid structure algorithm has been developed to describe the dynamics of floating objects: in particular the algorithm has been applied to boat dynamics. The same idea has been exploited in [J20] and [BC4]: a new algorithm based on the Uzawa method and on the 3D Shallow water model developed in [J2] has been proposed for the simulation of general floating objects. In [J14] the previous mentioned
Interpolation and reconstruction methods
In [J17] and [BC2] a new method based on Radial Basis Function for the interpolation of vector fields has been introduced and studied. The method has been efficiently applied for the reconstruction of velocity vec tor field in the context of free surface
Computational geodynamics
