报告人简介：Dr. Lombardi is an Assistant Professor of Geotechnical Engineering in the School of Mechanical Aerospace and Civil Engineering at The University of Manchester, UK. His main research interests are in geotechnics and soil dynamics, related to problems of offshore and earthquake engineering.
Dr. Lombardi is author of over twenty publications focusing on different civil engineering problems, including long-term performance of offshore wind turbines and design of pile-supported structures in liquefiable soils. He is a co-author of a textbook entitled "Fundamentals of Engineering Mathematics", published by the Institution of Civil Engineers, ICE Publishing. The book aims at bridging the gap between school mathematics and a first year engineering degree, providing students with an essential foundation of skills that will be valuable throughout their academic career and beyond. As part of his academic life, he has been actively involved in the knowledge transfer process by delivering Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses tailored for the offshore and nuclear industries.
In this presentation, Dr. Lombardi is going to present his ongoing research activities, including dynamic behaviour of offshore wind turbines, seismic performance of pile-supported structures during liquefaction phenomena, and lessons learnt from recent earthquakes.
