Homepage - Theoreticalibus - Software - Experimentation - Junk - About me

Hello everybody and welcome to my personal website!

My name is Stefano Boccelli and I'm a PhD student at Politecnico di Milano and von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics. This simple website is intended to collect some of my free-time or university projects, starting more or less from the begin of my master studies in Aeronautical engineering, in Italy. Some of those works might be useful to you (at least, I hope so!) some might not.. For any questions or suggestion, feel free to e-mail me and I'll be happy to answer you ASAP!

  BoccelliEngineering believes in Open Knowledge. Long live SCI-HUB!

Theoreticalibus - Some theoretical stuff: MSc and RM thesis, publications and some additional material with a somehow more theoretical orientation.

Software - Here you'll find some scripts/programs, mainly in Octave/MATLAB or C++, or computer-related stuff. Mainly engineering programs!

Experimentation and real stuff - Some realizations: from 30-Newton-MAX load cell, to measuring load spectra on a bicicle frame.

Junk - Something that doesn't fit elsewhere. No warranty on quality of this material! :-)

About me - The easiest page to write..
