Gianmarco de Felice
Gianmarco de Felice is Professor of Structural Engineering at the Department of Engineering of Roma Tre University. Graduated in 1990 at the University La Sapienza in Rome, he got his PhD in 1994 from the University of Florence. Research fellow at the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, Paris in 1994-95, researcher at the Faculty of Architecture of Roma Tre University in 1996-2001, associate professor at the Faculty of Engineering and then full professor since 2011.
He teaches the following courses at the Department of Engineering of Roma Tre University: Design of Steel and Reinforced Concrete Structures, Earthquake Engineering, Rehabilitation of Structures.
He is chairman of the RILEM Technical Committee TC-250 CSM “Composites for Sustainable strengthening of Masonry”; chair of the ACI Liaison Committee ACI 5490L, member of the Management Committee of the COST Action TUD 1207 “Next Generation Design Guidelines for Composites in Construction”;member of the Drafting Committee of the “Charter of Rome on the Resilience of Art Cities to Natural Catastrophes”, approved by IAP – The Global Network of Science Academies; associate editor of the Frontiers Structural Materials Journal and of the Journal Advances in Civil Engineering.
He has been the scientific coordinator for the design of engineering projects on heritage conservation and structural rehabilitation, such as: the restoration of Abbey of San Clemente in Casauria supported by the World Monuments Fund and awarded by the Domus International Prize for Restoration and Conservation, the seismic retrofitting of San Bernardino Convent after L’Aquila 2009 earthquake, the restoration of the Farnese Palace in Ischia di Castro, attributed to Antonio da Sangallo.
His current research activity encompasses the structural performance of architectural heritage, the seismic assessment and retrofitting of masonry and reinforced concrete structures, the modelling of soil-structure interaction due to excavation, the development of strengthening systems with composites, the mechanical characterization of composites. On these topics he has the responsibility of different research projects and has been invited to give general or keynote lectures to the several Conferences, among which 8th SAHC 2012, 15th MASE 2013; MuRiCo4 2014; Lincei Academy 2015; 10th SAHC 2016.
