Roberta Sburlati is Philosophical Doctor in Structural Engineering from 1986 and Associate Professor in Mechanics of Solids and Structures (Scienza delle Costruzioni ICAR/08) at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering of the University of Genoa from 2001; she teaches Advanced Structural Mechanics (Scienza delle Costruzioni 2) and Computational Structural Mechanics Courses to Civil Engineering and Mechanics Engineering students and the courses of Elasticity and Structural Mechanics to PhD students. She carries out his research activity at the Department of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, in the topics of the Mechanics of Solids, Structural Mechanics and Advanced Composite Materials. Roberta Sburlati is a member of the Council of PhD in Structural and Geotechnical Engineering in the PhD School of Mechanics of Fluids and Solids. She is member of the Materials Mechanics Group of the Italian Association of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (AIMETA) and member of the Physical Mathematics Group of the Italian National Institute for High Mathematics (INDAM). She was at the Department of Materials Science and Mineral Engineering of the University of California in Berkeley and at the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering of the University of Arizona in Tucson as Visiting Scientist. The main research subjects treated are the following: energy minimization in classical elastic solutions; universal solutions; internal constrained materials; free edge effects in composite laminates; local instability in composite laminate with interface delamination; low velocity impact problem on sandwich plates; contact mechanics, adhesion theories. From 1994 is responsible of national and international research projects (University, Murst, CNR, PRIN) for the study of the mechanical behavior of internal constrained materials, composite laminates and sandwich structures, contact mechanics in multistrate materials, adhesion forces models, functionally graded materials.
