How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Accomplished and result driven Civil & Environmental Professional Engineer with over seven years of comprehensive experience in Earthquake & Structural Engineering. I achieved a master’s degree in Structural Engineering and a doctorate in Earthquake Engineering. A strong academic background on design of new structures and seismic upgrade of existing ones. I gained expertise in analytical methods, numerical modeling and sustainability oriented optimizations of RC and steel structures.
In the context of developing an innovative seismic dissipation system, which aims to compromise on the steadiness of friction and processes costs, this work deals with the tribological characterization of an S355JR structural steel, whose surface has been preliminarily treated by different mechanical and galvanic processes. Tribological tests were...
Any design of standard structures in keeping with seismic safety norms is usually founded on an approach characterised by force-based design. Research has proven, over the course of several decades, that such an approach has a solid basis and can easily be applied by the engineers in charge of the design project. Furthermore, when taken in conjunct...
Pilotis buildings have widely spread out in developed countries since World War II onwards. From the structural point of view, Pilotis RC frames exhibit substantial lack in ductility capacity and shear resistance localized at the first floor, since they have been mainly realized before the seismic codes’ era. The present study shows the performance...
Seismic design of standard structures is typically founded on a force-based design approach. Over the years this approach has proven robust and easily applicable by design engineers and – in combination with capacity design principles – it provides a good protection against premature structural failures. However, it is also known that the force-bas...
Competitor for: Innovation in Concrete Structures and Cementitious Materials ACI Italy Chapter, Federbeton Award – 2018 Summary of the PhD Dissertations defended in Italy in years 2017 Editors: Pietro G. Gambarova and Roberto Realfonzo SAIE, Bologna, October 19, 2018 ISBN: 978-88-98720-20-0
Seismic upgrading of existing structures is a technical and social issue aimed at risk reduction. Sustainable design is one of the most important challenges in any structural project. Nowadays, many retrofit strategies are feasible and several traditional and innovative options are available to engineers. Basically, the design strategy can lead to...
