Since 2003, he has been working on different aspects of the Structural Integrity discipline, by mainly focusing attention on problems related to the static and fatigue assessment of engineering materials and components. In particular, he has attempted to devise engineering methods suitable for designing components (experiencing different kinds of stress concentration phenomena) against fatigue as well as against static failures.

Prof.Berto’s areas of expertise can be summarised as follows:

  • Metals and advanced materials
  • Mechanical behavior of metallic materials
  • Materials Engineering Science of metals
  • Fracture behaviour of additive manufacturing components
  • Fracture and Fatigue of hybrid and functional materials for biomedical and aerospace applications
  • Fatigue behaviour of light structures for aerospace applications
