About Professor Gianluca Ranzi

Gianluca is interested in high-performance buildings and, in particular, on how to enhance their functionalities to address the needs of future cities and urban agglomerates. His work ranges from structural engineering to architectural science.

Gianluca's interests are in the fields of structural engineering, architectural science and materials science.

Gianluca’s work in architectural science focuses on the development of structural components that embed multidisciplinary solutions capable of enhancing the functionalities of high-performance buildings, with a particular interest on adaptive structural systems. In the field of structural engineering, Gianluca has been active in research in the areas of composite steel-concrete and concrete structures engaging in both modelling and experimental work. He has also devoted particular attention to their service behaviour considering that this is usually their governing design criterion in Australia.
