Stefano Lenci

Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy

Stefano Lenci received a degree in civil engineering from the University of Ancona, Italy, summa cum laude, in 1992 and his Ph.D. degree in structural engineering from the University of Florence, Italy (1993–1997). After that, he gained a Postdoctoral degree from Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France (1998–2000), and then he gained the position of Maître de Conférences (Associate Professor) in France (2000). He became an Assistant Professor at Sapienza University of Rome (2000–2001) and an Associate Professor at the University of Ancona (2001–2005). Since 2005, he became a Full Professor at Marche Polytechnic University, Ancona, Italy, and he also serves as the Head of the Ph.D. program in structural and building engineering at the same university, since 2006. He became a Member of the Technical Committee on Control and Dynamics of Structures and Systems, American Society of Mechanical Engineering, since 2007 and a Member of the Academy of Science of the Marche Region since 2008. His research is focused on the nonlinear dynamics of mechanical systems and models, like buckled beams, shallow arches, rolling ships, pendulum, rigid block, beams on unilateral soil, frictional impact oscillator, and so on. Other specific research issues include laying of marine pipelines, the dynamic of windscreen wiper, various aspects of the mechanical behavior of interfaces, and mechanical models for detecting elastic and damaged behavior of composites.
