Sorace Stefano

Stefano Sorace è nato a Firenze nel 1959. Si è laureato in Ingegneria Civile nel 1985 presso l’Università di Firenze. Ha conseguito il titolo di Dottore di Ricerca in Ingegneria delle strutture nel 1990. Dal 1991 al 1998 è stato ricercatore universitario presso l’Università di Perugia. Dal 1998 è professore associato per il settore di Tecnica delle costruzioni presso l’Università di Udine.

È autore di oltre centoventi memorie scientifiche, numerose delle quali pubblicate su riviste internazionali. Gli argomenti di ricerca trattati riguardano varie tematiche all’interno dell’ingegneria sismica e della riabilitazione strutturale, l’analisi del comportamento meccanico dei materiali da costruzione e la caratterizzazione dinamica di elementi e sistemi strutturali.

È stato, ed è attualmente responsabile scientifico per l’Università di Udine in Progetti di Ricerca internazionali e nazionali.

– la realizzazione di un edificio destinato a nuova sede della Pubblica Assistenza “Fratellanza Popolare” in località Grassina – Firenze, dotato di un sistema avanzato di protezione sismica, costituito da isolamento e dissipazione supplementare alla base (2005-2006).

CV of Stefano Sorace

 Graduated “cum laude” in Civil Engineering – Structural Section at the University of Florence, in 1985. In 1990 he receives his PhD in Structural Engineering at the University of Florence. From 1991 to 1998 he is a researcher at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Perugia. From 1995 to 1998 he is teaching Structural Rehabilitation at the same University. Since 1998 he is associate professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Udine, where he was, or is currently teaching Structural Design, Structural Rehabilitation, Earthquake Engineering, Automatic Calculus of Structures, Laboratory of Structural Design, Laboratory of Architecture and Construction. He is author of around 130 scientific papers, several of which printed in international journals. Two among these papers were jointly awarded the 2001 edition of the “Munro Prize”, for the best paper published every year in the Engineering Structures journal, Elsevier Ltd. Another paper was awarded the 2002 “IABSE Outstanding Paper award”, for the best paper published every year in the Structural Engineering International journal. His main research

fields concern various topics within earthquake engineering, advanced seismic protection of structures, structural modelling and assessment, structural rehabilitation, the time-dependent behaviour of building materials, and the dynamic characterisation of structural members and systems. Among other research activities, he carried out the following engagements for the University of Udine: Scientific Responsible person and Team Manager for the European Commission-funded “Research and Technological Development” Project “SPIDER” (Strand Pre-stressing for Internal Damping of Earthquake Response); Scientific Responsible person for the European Commission-funded “Thematic Network” Project “CASCADE” (Co-operation And Standardisation in the Control of Advanced Dynamic Experiments); General Co-ordinator of the International Research Programme “DISPASS” (Dissipation and Isolation Passive Systems Study), within the European Commission-funded Project ECOLEADER; Scientific Responsible person for the Italian National Project M.U.R.S.T. 1999, financed by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research, concerning the evaluation of the design rules of Eurocode 8 for reinforced concrete structures; Scientific Responsible person for the Executive Programme DPC (Italian Department of Civil Defense)-ReLUIS (University Network of Seismic Engineering Laboratories) 2005-2008 – Research Project No. 7, dedicated to innovative seismic protection technologies for structures and infrastructures; Scientific Responsible person for the Executive Programme DPC-ReLUIS 2 – Task No. 2.3.2, dedicated to the seismic retrofit of structures by advanced protection technologies; and Scientific Responsible person for the Italian National Project PRIN 2008, financed by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research, dedicated to the innovative structural projects and the correlations between the leading engineering and architectural activities in Italy, during the 1950s and 1960s.
