Pietro Meriggi is a Postdoctoral fellow and member of the Structures Research Group at the Department of Engineering of Roma Tre University, in Rome (Italy). Born in 1992, he got his BSc in 2014, his MSc in 2017, and his PhD in Civil Engineering in 2021 at Roma Tre University.
Pietro’s research interests include the design of FRCM systems for repair and strengthening masonry structures, laboratory testing on FRCM systems and FRCM-strengthened masonry structural members, development of analytical formulations for the design of masonry structures strengthened with FRCMs, earthquake engineering, Distinct Element Modelling of masonry buildings under static and dynamic/seismic loading.
In January 2020 Pietro was visiting PhD Student at Navier Laboratory – IFSTTAR in Paris, where he worked on the investigation of possible strengthening techniques for 3D printed digital concrete structures.
Pietro has recently been involved in International Technical Committees, including the RILEM TC 250-CSM “Composites for sustainable strengthening of masonry” and the ACI 549 0L – RILEM TC 250 CSM Liaison Subcommittee “Design and Construction of Externally Bonded Fabric Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) Systems for Repair and Strengthening Masonry Structures”.
