Scientific papers/books

Author of about 150 scientific papers, most of which (about eighty) published on International Journals.  The papers deal with problems in the following fields:


·         Linear free oscillations of elastic suspended cables

·         Nonlinear oscillations of one dimensional, elastic, structural systems (wires, beams);

·         Critical and post-critical behaviour of thin-walled beams;

·         Nonlinear interaction among nearly-simultaneous buckling modes;

·         Nonlinear dynamics of wires orbiting systems;

·         Localization phenomena in Dynamics and Buckling;

·         Sensitivity analysis of defective and nearly-defective dynamical systems;

·         Aero-elastic stability phenomena in linear and nonlinear systems;

·         Passive control of aero-elastic oscillations by Tuned Mass Dampers and Nonlinear Energy Sinks;

·         Perturbation methods for multiple-bifurcations analysis of multi-parameter systems;

·         Dynamics and buckling of linear and nonlinear spatially-periodic systems;

·         Dynamics of strings and beams with travelling masses;

·         Piezo-electro-mechanical systems for passive control and enegy harvesting.


Co-author of six educational and scientific books, on Continuum Mechanics, Structural Mechanics and Elastic Stability.

Editor of a scientific book  (‘Recent Research Developments in Sound & Vibration’, ISBN:81-7736-186-4, 2003).
