Centre for Mechanics of Biological Materials - University of Padova
Date of birth: October 04, 1942
Bernhard Schrefler is professor emeritus at the University of Padova, Secretary General of the International Centre for Mechanical Science (CISM) at Udine and Hans-Fischer Senior Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study of the Technical University of Munich. He o btained a Ph.D. and D.Sc. from the University of Wales, Swansea. He published over two hundreds papers in refereed journal, five textbooks and twenty three edited texts. The text "The Finite Element Method in the Static and Dynamic Deformation and Consolidation of Porous Media" is an accepted state-of-the-art book. He serves on the Editorial Board of many academic journals. Active within European Community R & D and training initiatives. Within the sixth framework programme he took part in MAECENAS, UPTUN, IALAD, KMM-NoE, RAMWASS, a MARIE CURIE Programme and in a EURATOM/CNR-ENEA contract on thermo-mechanical problems in superconducting coils for ITER. Within FP seven he is involved in INVINN and Marie Curie Programme MUMOLADE, further he takes part in a SOCRATES contract with Poland and in the Training Network BESTOFRAC within the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions. Research interests are in the following areas: Environmental Geomechanics, Soil Science and Reservoir Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Structural-and Materials Engineering, Fusion Technology.
