Oreste S. Bursi graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Padua in 1984, and achieved his PhD. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol. He interacted with, invited, financially supported and coordinated a number of visiting professors and scientists. See Benson Shing, Heterogeneous Substructuring, University of California, San Diego, (USA). Masayoshi Nakashima, Heterogeneous Substructuring, Kyoto University, (JP). R. Tremblay, Earthquake Engineering, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, (CA). Bin Wu, Numerical Methods in Structural Dynamics, Harbin Institute of Technology, (PRC). D. P. Stoten, S.D. Neild, Control Engineering, University of Bristol, (UK). David J. Wagg, Dynamic Substructuring, University of Sheffield, (UK). P. Pegon, F.J. Molina, Numerical methods in structural dynamics, Joint Research Centre, EU, Ispra, (I). J-P Jaspart, J-M Franssen, Steel Connnection modelling under static/fire loadings, Université de Liège, (BE). These successful interactions resulted in a large number of journal publications, published in the top journals of Structural Dynamics, Earthquake Engineering, Computational Mechanics, Numerical Methods and Control (91 ISI articles, 48 of which co-authored with partners from foreign Universities).
