Dr. Eng. Adrián Santilli

My areas of research are auxiliary systems and equipment (formwork and scaffolding mainly) and concrete technology. In the area of formwork design, I am interested in the load distribution between multi-story building props and lateral pressure, performed by fresh concrete over vertical surfaces of formwork and the velocities of lateral pressure and its stabilization time. 

In the area of concrete technology, I have investigated which are the key factors to optimize the compressive strength of concrete, and the importance of curing it. On the other hand, I have also worked with non-traditional construction systems, seeking to determine dosages of concrete that allow the technical viability of these systems.
