Biography

Davide Moro was born in Pesaro on June 28th 1962, in july 1981 he received the final diploma from the scientific lyceum secondary school "Enrico Fermi" in Bologna and he received his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bologna on febrary, 24th 1988 presenting an experimental thesis titled "Fluid flow analysis in bend diffondent ducts".

 

Academic career and activity

He wan an university Researcher position in the scientific sector ING-IND/08 at the University of Bologna and there has worked in the Engineering Faculty from march 21st, 1990 to October 30th, 1998. On march 1993 he was put in the permanent research staff, Associate Professor in October 1998 and then Full Professor since October 2001 at Bologna 's Second Engineering Faculty.

He has always been a member of the research staff of the Machine and Energetic System Section of the Department of Mechanical, Nuclear, Aerospace Engineering Design and Metallurgy of the University of Bologna .

He began his didactic activity as assistant for Machine and Energetic System courses in the Engineering Faculty of the University of Bologna from 1990, then from the Academic Year 1994/1995 up to 1999/2000 he had the responsibility of "Machine experimentation" for the Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. From Academic Year 1998/1999 up to 2004/2005 he teached "Machine Dynamic and Control" for Mechanical Engineer of the five year curriculum degree. From the Academic Year 2006-07 he teaches "Internal Combustion Engines Control" for the specialist degree in Mechanical Engineer of the Engineering Faculty of the University of Bologna,

From Academic Year 2000/2001 he is the titolar of "Energetic System" for the three year degree in Mechanical Engineer in the Second Engineering Faculty of the University of Bologna and from 2001/2002 he is the titolar of "Internal Combustion Engines" for the specialist degree in Mechanical Engineer of the Second Engineeiring Faculty of the University of Bologna

From 2000 he is member of the teacher college of the Engineering PhD on Machine and Energetic System and from 2005 he is the teacher college coordinator.

 

University management activity

From 2002, year of the activation of the Second Engineering Faculty of the University of Bologna , he is member of the Presidency Board that co-ordinate the management and programmation of the Faculty. He is member of the board for the tutor and didactic maneger selection,of the autoevaluation board, member of the tirocinium board, he has been several times the President of the degree board for Mechanical Engineers, President of the orienting test for the Second Engineering Faculty.

He has been called by the Minestry to be President to include in permanent staff Full and Associate Professor and he has been called by the Second Engineering Faculty to be President to include in permanent staff non teaching personal.

He has been member of the board for the research grant attribution for the Industrial Engineering Section.

He is also the responsible for the safety in the Department of Mechanical, Nuclear, Aerospace Engineering Design and Metallurgy of the University of Bologna .

From the November 2008 he is the President of the Mechanical Engeneering Course.

 

Professional experiencies

In the year 2001 he has been called by the Industry, Commerce and Handcraft Minestry as expert for the Technologic Innovation Fund support action.

In the December 2002 he has estabilish a spin-off society, of which he is the president.

In the 2003 year he has been called by the General Direction of the Economic Devopment of the Toscana Region as effective member of the evaluation board for the technical and scientific aspects, of the innovation degree and of the econimics aspects for the projects presented on the basis of article 11 of the Lex 598/94. In the 2004 he has been called by the Productive Activity Minestry - General Direction to evaluate the technical and innovation aspects in the founding request presented in the FIT program for the per-competitive development. In the 2005 year he has been called by the Handcraft and Enterprise Support Politic Sector of the Toscana Region as expert member for the evaluation of the final project document of the enterprise allowed to the call on the basis of article 11 of the Lex 598/94.

 

Scientific Research Activity

The research activity, started on 1990, has followed these different directions:

- Experimental analysis of the fluid flow in diffusive ducts;

- Simulation code development for the evaluation of performance of gas turbine, different architecture of combined plants and cogeneration plants;

- Oleodinamic and pneumatic research;

- Internal Combsution Engines:

- Combustion chamber pressure reconstruction with non intrusive instrumentation for diagnosis purposes;

- Modeling of internal combustione engine for the faults detection in sensors and actuators;

- Misfire detection in high performance engines;

- Evaluation of functional parameters in Formula One engines by means of acoustic emission analysis;

- Algorithm development for the engine control optimisation;

He has also coordinated the development of the engine test cell in the Second Enginerring Faculty.

He was Scientific Coordinator in an European contract (ESPIRIT) named "Very Robust transient exhaust gas emissions cOntrOl algorithms for a 12-cylinder high perforMance engine" (VROOM) with the collaboration of Lamborghini.

He has been and is involved in several research contracts with industrial partner as Magneti Marelli, Alfa Romeo Racing team, Ferrari both Industrial division and racing team on thematic about modelling, control and diagnostic of internal combustion engines.

He is the reference contact for the Department of Mechanical, Nuclear, Aerospace Engineering Design and Metallurgy of the University of Bologna for the regional project SIMECH (integrated simulation and design in the automotive and advance mechanical sectors).

He's included as inventor in two patents.

He is in the direction Board of the Emilia Romagna regional section of ATA (Technical Automotive Association)

Since 2012 is the reference person for the department of Industrial Engineering of the Operative Unit at the Campus of Forlì.
