Dario Vecchio, from Italy, recently joined the S4H Team as a PhD student. He graduated in Building Engineering and Architecture at the University of Pisa in September 2018, with a final dissertation on the implementation of digital methods (H.B.I.M. environment) for the conservation of Built Heritages. For his S.A.H.C. (Advanced Master in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Construction) thesis, he investigated the tensile stresses’ numerical and analytical evaluation of a metallic tie-rod (XVIIth century) that is connecting two side walls in the cimborio of the Monastery of Saint Cugat (Catalonia, ES).
His research work, in the past, has included, in addition to the conservation of historic structures, the development of a design procedure for prestressed concrete girders reinforced with FRP auxiliary reinforcement. Currently, within the scope of the S4H project, he will be engaged in the study and characterization, from the analytical, numerical, and experimental point of view, of the out-of-plane and rocking motion of masonry structures under dynamic loading. In particular, he will lead several campaigns based on the use of shaking tables.
