Prof. Silvano Marchetti was the inventor and the patent owner of the first DMT blade in the 1974.
In a relatively short time, he was able to build a worldwide reputation for the company, also throughout the collaboration with prestigious University and Research Institutes. More than 1000 papers, including various National standards, ASTM standard, Eurocode, research reports and thesis have been published on the Flat Dilatometer (DMT) by researchers around the world.
Prof. Marchetti has made determination of design parameters from DMT in over 1000 construction sites. His passionate research activity went on during the following years and benefited from the innovative breakthrough introduced by Eng. Diego Marchetti, who joined the company in 2001 and gave his contribution to the invention of the Seismic DMT, a combination of the flat dilatometer with an add-on seismic module for the measurement of the shear wave velocity Vs.
Since then, the company continued to look ahead, by developing the nearshore as well as the offshore soil test, to meet the growing demands of the clients. Medusa DMT and Seafloor are two innovative and integrated system for that kind of measurement.
From 1974, a long path has been trodden, a lot of progresses have been made, but the same spirit of innovation, the same passion, accuracy and attention to the detail define us and we are proud of that.
