On January 29th, AMADE researcher Jordi Llobet Vallejo has presented his PhD thesis in the University of Girona. His contribution “A constitutive model for fatigue and residual strength predictions of composite laminates” deals with the fatigue issue of composites structures. In general, composites present an...

During the week of November 11th-15th, and in the framework of the Master’s Mechanics of Materials and Structures, we will receive the visit of Dr. Ernesto Zumelzu Delgado from the Universidad Austral de Chile (https://www.uach.cl/). Dr. Zumelzu is the coordinator of the Master studies of:...

Prof. Peter Bischoff, from the University of New Brunswick, in Canada, has been in a research visit with the AMADE Group during September and October 2019. Prof. Bischoff is widely recognized for his work on deflection calculation of reinforced concrete (RC) structures, and his visit...

High performance fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are at increasing demand in key industry sectors (e.g., aerospace, automotive) due to modern lightweight design strategy, which triggers reduced structural weight while preserving the high mechanics performances; reduced fuel consumption and consequent reduced NOx emission; and increased...
