The Aerospace PhD Days are organized by the Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics, AIDAA, and are open to PhD students working on Aerospace Science and Engineering topics. The 2024 proceedings edition has 42 presentations, with authors from more than ten institutions, including delegates from China, Germany, Lithuania, and Switzerland. Many aerospace disciplines and topics were covered, such as fluid dynamics, structures, stratospheric balloons, maintenance and operations, UAV, dynamics and control, space systems, sustainability of aeronautics and space, aeroelasticity, multiphysics, space debris, aeroacoustics, navigation and traffic management, additive manufacturing, and human-machine interaction.
