The Scruton Lecture is part of ICE’s prestige event series and is held in honour of Christopher ‘Kit’ Scruton, a British industrial dynamics engineer. The topic contributes to ICE's Energy, Resilience and Climate Change campaign.
Professor of Structural Mechanics & Chair of Computational Mechanics of Structures, University of Florence
Prof. Borri has edited 9 books (3 textbooks and 6 proceedings of international conferences) and authored more than 340 scientific publications (more than 110 in refereed journals; h‐index: 15; citation index: 458).
As a professional consultant and chartered Structural Engineer involved in Statics and Dynamics of Structures, Prof. Borri has dealt, with several major structural engineering designs and projects over his 35 year career. Main topics of concern are: wind effects on large buildings and structures (like TV towers and antennas, large roofs, tall buildings, bridges and footbridges), large wind turbines, off‐shore wind energy structures, etc., at national and international level. In June 2010, till the end of 2012, Prof. Borri was appointed by the Italian Ministry of Infrastructures as a Member of the Higher Advisory Board (Scientific Committee) of the “Stretto di Messina” Spa for the design and construction of the ever largest suspension bridge (3,300 m) across the strait of Messina (Calabria‐Sicily).
