Research Projects & Areas of Interest

Michele Marconcini has an Assistant Professor Contract at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Florence (formerly "Sergio Stecco" Department of Energy Engineering). He carries out research in the field of turbomachinery and aerospace propulsion in cooperation with several industries. His interest is in the development of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)  techniques for steady/unsteady viscous solvers.
Since 1998 he is involved in the research projects of ICAD (International Consortium for Advanced Design).
  • Member of the IGTI Turbomachinery Committee (2006-present).
  • ASME member (2018-present)
  • Member of the Centro di Ricerca, Trasferimento e Alta Formazione "Turbomacchine e Sistemi Energetici - Ce.R.Tu.S." of the University of Florence (DR 178/04).
  • Italian National Scientific Qualification (09/C1 - Associate Professor) 21/01/2014 - 22/02/2024.
  • Member of the AIMSEA "Associazione Italiana delle Macchine a fluido e dei Sistemi per l'Energia e l'Ambiente" (2017-present)

He was involved in the following European Community Research Projects:

  • APPACET (Assessment of Physical Process and Code Evaluation for Turbomachinery flows, 1998-2000)

  • EEFAE (Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Aero Engine, 2000-2004)
