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...

7th ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on the Mechanical Response of Composites, Composites 2019, will be held at Girona between 18 and 20 of September. The main goal of Composites 2019 is the scientific investigation of complex mechanical behaviour of composite materials and structures. The conference focuses on...

The October ’18 issue of Composites Part A includes a contribution by S. García-Rodríguez et al. that compares the out-of-plane response of thin-plies with that of standard-ply samples. Damage initiation and propagation has been detailed using quasi-static indentation and impact tests at incremental energy levels,...

Once again, AMADE is happy to announce that a new PhD dissertation has been successfully presented. Magdalena Pérez, on July 27, presented her original research on the shear (mode II) fracture toughness in adhesive joints. She has used two new data reduction methods that allow...

AMADE is pleased to congratulate Laura Carreras for earning her PhD last July 17. She presented her thesis, a contribution to the reliable design of composite structures subjected to fatigue-driven delamination. A first step has been to design a method, using the cohesive zone model...

Make the most of a research stay: That is what Jordi Llobet did in the University of Aalborg (Denmark) under the supervision of Dr. Esben Lindgaard. Three months till June 1 were invested in developing a numerical application to couple the damage occurring inside the...
