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...

Aravind Sasikumar has achieved his PhD Degree July 18th in the conference hall of the Polytechnic School of the University of Girona after presenting his thesis “Improving compression after impact response of composite laminates through ply level hybridization with thin plies and unsymmetrical designs”.   The main...

Last 10th July, Dr. Gerard Guillamet, who did his PhD in AMADE, has been invited to our facilities to give a seminar on "Residual Strength and Structural Health monitoring using High Performance Computing”, a research he is currently developing at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC)....

On June 28th , Santiago García has presented his PhD thesis in the conference hall of the Polytechnic School. This contribution has focused on understanding how ply-thickness affects the out-of-plane response of thin quasi-isotropic non-crimp fabric laminates and on enhancing the impact tolerance of the...

On September 7th , AMADE’s PhD student Albert Soto has very satisfactorily presented his PhD dissertation. This contribution is aimed at imporving the design of relatively large composite sub-components under the potential failure caused by low velocity impact (LVI) and subjected to Compression After Impact...

During the week of March 4th-8th, and in the framework of the Master's Mechanics of Materials and Structures  we will receive the visit of two leading researchers on composites: Dr. Silvestre Pinho (Imperial College of London) and Dr. Julien Jumel (Université of Boudeaux). Dr. Pinho is...
