M.S., 1988, Ph.D., 1991, University of Southern California
Raimondo Betti specializes in the areas of structural dynamics and earthquake engineering with particular emphasis on the analysis of dynamic soil-structure interation effects for horizontally-extended structures. His research interests include the dynamic response of embedded foundations to earthquake excitation, analysis and determination of Green's functions for homogeneous and layered semi -infinite domains, effects of the spatial variation of ground motion on the seismic response of bridges, active, passive and hybrid control systems for the vibration control of structures subjected to earthquake and/or wind excitation, and damage detection for bridges using data correlation analysis. He is a member of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and Sigma Xi.
