Enrico Radi


I coauthored more than 60 papers published on international scientific journals and more than 50 conference proceedings. I developed my research activity mainly in the field of the mechanics of solids and structures. I studied some problems of fracture mechanics and dynamic crack propagation in elastic anisotropic, in elastic-plastic and poroelastic fluid-saturated media, in advanced ceramics. In particular, I solved some problems about dynamic crack propagation in homogeneous materials and along the interface between different materials. I also provided some contribution to the fields of structural dynamics, seismic engineering, strain localization in elastic-plastic anisotropic materials; unilateral friction contact between linear elastic bodies and stiffer supports. I investigated cracks and dislocations in quasicrystals, which are intermetallic solids characterized by a quasiperiodic spatial distribution of atoms continuously rearranged according to the macroscopic deformation. I also analyzed the problem of crack propagation in ductile and brittle materials with microstructures. In particular, I performed a sound investigation of the crack tip process zone at the microscale level by considering strain gradient elastic and elastic-plastic constitutive relations. These constitutive models are able to simulate the presence of microstructures and the size effects by enclosing one or more material characteristic lengths. I developed an analytical model for a crystalline undulator which exploits the “channelling” phenomenon, namely a coherent, intense and collimated electromagnetic radiations obtained by oscillations of electrical charges confined inside a crystalline lattice. This special device found several applications for the realization of micro-electronic components. I investigated the collapse load of ductile plates on local and non local elastic grade. The results of this investigation find application also for the design of industrial pavements made of Fibre Reinforced Concrete. Moreover, I proposed an analytic model for the simulation of the pullout behavior of polymeric fibres treated with nanosilica from a cementitios matrix. I found accurate analytical bounds for the pull-in parameters of a micro/nanocantilever beam subject to electrostatic actuation and intermolecular surface forces . I also studied the effective elastic and thermal properties of composite materials containing voids, fractures or inclusions of various shapes.
