Dr Enrico Tubaldi


Civil and Environmental Engineering

Personal statement

I joined the the Center for Intelligent Infrastructure at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of University of Strathclyde in October 2017 as Lecturer in Structural Engineering. Before joining University of Strathclyde, I was Marie Curie Reaserch Fellow at Imperial College London (UK).
My research interests include risk assessment and mitigation of structures and infrastructure under natural hazards such as earthquakes and floods, and material and structural testing and modelling. My research aims at reaching a better understanding of the behavior of building and bridge structures under extreme loadings, by also taking into account the stochastic nature of the loading environment and of the structural properties. This effort can lead to safer, more economic and more rational design procedures and contribute to make the built environment more resilient against the impact of natural disasters.

Please feel free to contact me if interested in research or knowledge exchange collaborations or doing a PhD under his supervision.

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is an emerging technology for damage identification of aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering infrastructure, with significant potential for life-safety and economic benefits. Vibration-based SHM entails measuring the response of structural systems to dynamic excitations through appropriate sensors, and intelligently analysing the measured response to identify damage occurrence or degradation. This project supports the development and build of a vibration laboratory (VibLab) across the Faculty of Engineering, a new inter-disciplinary facility for there is a strong need, but is currently missing at Strathclyde. The laboratory will benefit the short- and long-term career development plans of Early Career Researchers (ECRs), enhancing their capabilities in the field of SHM. It will also strengthen the connections across departments, and contribute to maximise external funding income and attract new industrial and academic partners. The facility is a joint initiative between the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Naval Architecture and Ocean and Marine Engineering.

£32K EPSRC Capital Award for ECRs, £11K Faculty of Engineering Strategic Research Funding, £20k total combined departmental funding.
