Since 1989 Alberto Pavese performs his experimental and numerical research in the fields of the seismic response assessment of r.c. structures, isolation systems and experimental methods applied to seismic engineering. Head of the team in charge of the design and implementation of the experimental facilities at TREESLab, the experimental Laboratories at the Foundation EUCENTRE, which includes the largest European shake table and one of the biggest dynamic simulator for 3D test on antiseismic devices. He is author of more 110 scientific papers.
His main scientific interests are focused on the cyclic behaviour of existing r.c. structures, reparation of damaged structures with fibre reinforced materials and construction techniques based on the use of lightly reinforced panels. In the isolation field his interests are focused on antiseismic devices characterization and the implementation of design techniques for isolated structures. Other interests are related to the implementation of innovative experimental techniques for structural and seismic engineering.
He has been coordinator of several national and international research projects.
