The SMaRT ESRs have spent 3 months together at Politecnico di Torino. Support and availability by professors Luca Bruno and Luigi Preziosi have enabled ESRs to follow specially prepared courses on mathematical and numerical aspects of sand transport:
- Computational wind engineering;
- Mechanics of porous media.
During the period, ESRs have also followed a summer school “Understanding the Middle East”at Università di Torino in order to learn more about the culture of potential future clients.
