Mr. Simone D’Amore is currently a PhD student with scholarship of the XXXVI cycle, at the Department of Structural and Geotechnical Engineering at Sapienza University of Rome.
He received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at Sapienza University of Rome in 2016 with a final score of 110/110 cum laude and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Structural Engineering in 2020 with a final score of 110/110 cum laude. His thesis, “Seismic assessment of Point Fixed Glass Facade Systems (PFGFS): Comparing traditional vs innovative low-damage connection systems”, was supervised by Professor Stefano Pampanin. In this work, an innovative connection system has been proposed for such glazed facades.
The main research interests of Mr. Simone D’Amore refer to integrated seismic-energy retrofit strategies for existing RC buildings. From a seismic point of view, the interests concern global external interventions using innovative low-damage walls or frame systems (exoskeleton). From an energy point of view, the interests concern the use of thermal coats and ventilated facades, paying critical attention to connection details to reduce the vulnerability of such components.
