Costantino Menna Costantino Menna is Assistant Professor at the University of Naples Federico II, where he graduated in Materials Engineering in 2009 and received his Ph.D. in Materials Engineering and Structures in 2013, working on damage modeling of advanced composite materials.
He is involved in several multidisciplinary research activities mainly focused on advanced materials for civil and industrial applications, including: finite element modeling of advanced composite materials, experimental and theoretical assessment of innovative materials used for structural retrofit of existing structures, and additive manufacturing in the construction industry. During his academic career, he has been visiting research scholar in several foreign institutions: École Polytechnique de Montréal (Canada), Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics of Penn State University (USA), Laboratoire de Mécanique des Solides of Ecole Polytechnique (Parigi), University of Greenwich (UK).
He is a member of several task groups of fib (Fédération Internationale du Béton) and member of RILEM Technical Committee: “Digital fabrication with cement-based materials”. He is a co-founder of the Spinoff FED, Future Environmental Design, providing services on the integration of Building Integration Modeling (BIM) and Sustainability in the construction sector.
He is author of more than 30 scientific papers published in international peer-reviewed journals and 3 national and international patents.
