Keywords: Reinforced concrete structures Non linear models Dynamic and seismic analysis Vertical ground motion Seismic design Fluid-viscous dampers Base isolation Seismic reliability Masonry structures Dynamic identification Structural Health Monitoring

1) Development of models for the non-linear static and dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete structures: spread plasticity models; fibre models; determination of deformation capacity at collapse.
2) Study on the seismic behaviour and design criteria of RC structures: influence of the vertical seismic component; damage evaluation; influence of masonry infills; design according to Eurocode 8; displacement based seismic design methodologies.
3) Pushover procedures for the estimate of seismic response: simplified procedures for the estimate of seismic response; standard, multi-modal and adaptive procedures; pushover procedures for plan-asymmetric buildings.
4) Insertion of devices for the control of seismic effects: base isolation of structures subjected to near-fault ground motions; fluid-viscous dampers for the seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings.
5) Reliability analysis and probabilistic approaches for structures subjected to seismic actions: determination of seismic hazard; influence of seismic intensity measure; evaluation of failure probability of RC structures subjected to seismic action.
6) Evaluation of seismic vulnerability of masonry buildings: analysis of collapse mechanisms.
7) Dynamic identification of structures and damage detection from vibration data.
