A. Professor Alberto Pavese, received the Laurea cum laude in Civil Engineering from University of Pavia, and his Ph. D. in Structural Engineering from Polytechnic of Milan/University of Pavia. Alberto Pavese now serves as an associate professor, Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture in the University of Pavia and the head of TREESLab at the Foundation Eucentre of Pavia. Since 1989 Alberto Pavese performs his experimental and numerical research in the fields of the seismic response assessment of R.C. structures, isolation systems and experimental methods applied to seismic engineering. He serves as the head of the team in charge of the design and implementation of the experimental facilities at TREESLab, and the experimental Laboratories at the Foundation EUCENTRE, which includes the largest European shake table and one of the biggest dynamic simulator for 3D test on anti-seismic devices. His other major academic experiences include: the vice president of the sub commission CEN/TC 250/SC 8 Eurocode 8: Earthquake resistance design of structures; member of the subcommission for the revision on the Italian Structural Code (Norme Tecniche per le Costruzioni, NTC 2008); member of the Scientific Committee of the ROSE School Pavia; member of ACI – American Concrete Institute, Italian Chapter; member of the Board of Directors of National Consortium RELUIS “Network of Italian University Laboratories in Seismic Engineering”; and the head of the experimental laboratory of Materials and Structures at the University of Pavia. His main scientific interests are focused on the cyclic behavior of existing R.C. structures, reparation of damaged structures with fiber reinforced materials and construction techniques based on the use of lightly reinforced panels. In the isolation field his interests are focused on anti-seismic devices characterization and the implementation of design techniques for isolated structures. Other interests are related to the implementation of innovative experimental techniques for structural and seismic engineering. He has been coordinator of several national and international research projects and the author of more 110 scientific papers.
