Università degli Studi dell’Aquila
Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale e dell’Informazione e di Economia

He graduated as Electric Engineer with honours in December 1980 at the University of L’Aquila (Italy). Since this date, he started a continuous cooperation with the Thermal Engine Division of the Department of Energetics, University of L’Aquila, Italy. Just after his graduation, he was called to a training activities concerning the official courses of Machines, Machine Design and he was the reference for some Research Project concerning the thermodynamic properties of potential fluids in thermal power plants (ORC Cycles) developing a new equation of state (BWR modified), concerning an important District Heating Plant in L’Aquila and also the energetic and environmental characterization of a Territory (“Fucino” site).After the military service held as Technical Officer of the Italian Army Force, he joined the Von Karman Institute in for Fluid Dynamics (Brussels, Belgium) winning, as best research done, the Belgian Government Prize in 1984, discussing a novel theoretical approach to represent the three-dimensional flow inside high speed centrifugal compressor impellers.In 1987 he got the Philosophy Doctor Degree on “Engineering of thermal engines” at the University of L’Aquila. The PhD thesis was referred to an original theoretical and experimental treatment of the unsteady convective heat transfer in reciprocating internal combustion engines (ICE) opening the way to the unsteady treatment of this process.The ICE sector will remain one of his main research topic. During these years (1987-1989), Roberto Cipollone has been contract professor on “Mechanics and Machines” and “Dynamics and control of machines”, giving a strong support to the Machine and Machine Design courses: this was done at the Engineering Faculty, University of L’Aquila. Thanks to this deep academic activities which was reinforced by a strong scientific growth, Roberto Cipollone joined the Department of Energy of the University of L’Aquila (DIMEG) as Researcher in 1989, in 1990 as Senior Researcher, in 1992 as Associate Professor on Dynamics and control of thermal engines, and in 1993 as Full Professor on Interactions between the Environment and thermal engines, so and reaching the top level of University status. In 2012 the mentioned Department (DIMEG) was redefined and actually it is the Industrial and Information Engineering and Economics, DIIIE.
This official course was a national novelty in the training university program, so starting one important continuous updating of the research and training activities to the new scientific and technological requirements coming fro the Society.
According to this principle, from a scientific point of view his career was mainly oriented toward the evaluation of the “engineering” interactions between energy transformation and the environment. Unconventional thermodynamics approaches were applied to the study of machines behaviour and thermal engines & energy optimization systems. Also the sector of the Dynamics of thermal engines, mainly referred to reciprocating internal combustion engines, represented one of the main research activities.
In the framework of several important research project done for Companies having an international dimension (Parker Hannifin, Cleveland USA, Dayco Inc. , USA, Mark Four-MIV- Systèmes Moteur, Orbey, France, Daytech Vigo Spain, MTU Italy, Hunsheal, Sweden, Ing. E. Mattei S.p.A, Italy, C.e.set. S.p.A. Emerson Appliances, USA, etc.), Roberto Cipollone went deep inside several engineering aspects, offering the University skills to the industrial sector.
