See the cv
Francesco Pellicano was born in Rome, Italy on 1966. He received a M.S. degree in Aeronautical Engineering in 1992 and Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics in 1996, both at the University of Rome La Sapienza, Dept. of Mechanics and Aeronautics.
He was Researcher at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Faculty of Engineering, Dept. of Mechanical and Civil Engineering, 1996-2003.
He is currently Associate Professor at the same University since January 2004.
He was involved in investigations concerning: nonlinear vibrations of structures; nonlinear normal modes; axially moving systems; nonlinear vibration of shells with fluid structure interaction; gears modeling; non-smooth dynamics; Chaos; Nonlinear Time Series Analysis; Forecasting Methods in Oceanography.
He cooperated with Prof. Vestroni, Prof. Sestieri and Prof. Mastroddi of the University of Rome La Sapienza and with with: Prof. Païdoussis (Mc Gill Univ. Canada); Prof. Vakakis (Univ. of Illinois at Urbana Champaign; recently National Technical Univ. of Athens, Greece); Prof. Amabili (Univ. of Parma, Italy).
The teaching activity regards: Vibrations of Discrete and Continuous Systems; Signal Processing; Machine Theory and Machinery.
He was coordinator of an international NATO CLG-Grant project on Nonlinear Dynamics of Shells with Fluid Structure Interaction and was the local coordinator of an Italian project on Shells Vibrations.
His research activity regards also industrial problems, he cooperated for research and consultancies with several companies about: vehicle stability; experimental vibrations; clutch instabilities and failures.
He was reviewer for the following international journals: SIAM Journal of Applied Mathematics, Nonlinear Dynamics, ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics, J. of Solids and Structures; J. of Sound and Vibration, Computer Methods in applied Mechanics and Engineering, Int. J. of Systems Science; and reviewer for the foundations: FCAR (Fonds pour la Formation de Chercheurs et l' Aide à la Recherche) Québec, CANADA; Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
He is Associate Editor of the journal: Mathematical Problems in Engineering, Hindawi, and takes part to the international advisory editorial board of the journal: Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation, Elsevier.
He published a Book, 35 Journal papers and more than 60 conference papers.
