Secretary's Office of the RL Dynamics and Vibrations
Stefano Bruni is full professor at Politecnico di Milano, Dipartimento di Meccanica. His scientific work is mainly carried out in the field of dynamics and stability of mechanical systems with applications to Rail vehicle dynamics and train-track interaction, active control and condition monitoring in rail vehicles, pantograph-catenary interaction, wind-induced vibration of large civil structures.
He authored approximately 230 scientific papers and spent a large amount of time lecturing and consulting to industry in Italy and other countries. . He is / has been lead scientist for several research projects funded by the industry and by the EC. From 2003 to date Prof. Bruni has been group leader for the “Rail vehicle dynamics” research group, carrying out research on the dynamic behaviour of rail vehicles and their interaction with the infrastructure..
Prof Bruni is Vice-President of the IAVSD - International Association for Vehicle System Dynamics and has been chairman of the IAVSD’05 International conference held in Milano in 2005. He is Associate Editor of the Journal Urban Rail Transit and member of the Editorial Board of the following journals: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Part F: Journal of Rail and Rapid Transit, Journal of Modern Transportation, International Journal of Railway Technology. He is also a member of the French Technological Research Institute (IRT) RAILENIUM.
