DIMS covers different research areas in Structural Engineering of great current interest, as the analysis of the behaviour of new and existing structures and bridges/footbridges, the long term monitoring of structures and bridges/footbridges as well as the development of innovative structural composite systems. The research activities rely heavily on a balanced and integrated use of experimental testing, analytical and numerical modelling. DIMS manages the Materials and Structural Testing Laboratory (http://www.unitn.it/en/dims/7275/materials-and-structural-testing ) whose essential parts are the 9.5 m tall pre-stressed concrete bi-directional reaction wall and the 42 m long reaction floor, which are designed to resist forces of several MN.

UNITN is very active at the European and international level in terms of project and collaborations.
