Research: Conceptualization, engineerization and experimentation of seismic protection devices aimed at the improvement of the performance capability of precast or partially precast buildings.
Giulio Proietti is a PhD student of the XXXVII cycle in Structural and Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", with a scholarship funded by Lazio Region.
In 2019 he obtained a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and in 2022 a master's degree in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Structural Engineering with a grade of 110/110 cum laude. The master's thesis, "Energy-Based Design: Seismic performance of structures based on the energy equation of motion", was supervised by Prof. Ing. Stefano Pampanin. In this work a new seismic design approach called "Energy-Based Design", referred to both traditional structures and low damage systems (PRESSS or PRES-LAM). The method was then compared with the classic design criteria, such as "Force-Based Design" and "Direct Displacement- Based Design", to prove the best performing post-seismic damage control for any structure.
Giulio Proietti's research interests concern the study and improvement of the performance capability of precast or partially precast buildings, through the physical and numerical experimentation of seismic protection devices capable of dissipating energy with hysteretic and/or viscous mechanisms.
