Personal information

Ezio Cadoni, born in May 1965 in Iglesias (Italy), studied at the faculty of engineering of the University of Cagliari and received his degree, summa cum laude, in Civil Engineering in July 1990. He subsequently developed, for three years, his PhD studies at the Structural Engineering Department of the Politecnico di Torino. In 1992 he was visiting researcher at the University of Cincinnati (USA) where he studied interferometric holography applied on strain measurement of materials. In 1994 he received his PhD on Structural mechanics with the thesis “On the fatigue behavior of anchors”. In March 1994 he started to Joint Research Centre of the European Commission as Post-Doc fellow and subsequently as scientific officer. Here he developed researches on materials and structures behavior under impact as an extensive experimental campaign on the strain-rate behavior of concrete in the frame of the 3rd European FP, the study of crash absorber in collaboration of 17 European crash laboratories and some third party works for several industrial partners.
At the end of 1997 he arrived to Switzerland as R&D head of a consulting engineering firm and its laboratory of Lugano. Here he worked for Swiss Expo, in several research projects (as tensegrity structures, ESPI, etc.), and in testing services and technical surveys.
In 2000 he was appointed lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland. Two years later he joined to this university full time. He has been SUPSI Professor since June 2004. He chair the Continuing education and the Research of Department since 2002.
His teaching covers the fundamentals of structural mechanics (statics, theory of structures, masonry, and strength of materials). In research he concentrates on the dynamic behavior of materials, measurement by Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry, anchors, durability, impact behavior of structures. He chaired several sessions of international conferences and has been member of several technical committees. He is reviewer of International Journals.
He is author of more than hundred papers in reviewed International journals and conferences. Presently he is the President of the Dymat association.
