AMADE group is happy to have had Ms. Carolina Furtado from the University of Porto performing a short experimental campaign in our facilities from 23-10-2017 to 4-11-2017 on the experimental determination of the crack resistance curves of thin-ply nano-reinforced interfaces under supervision of Prof. Pedro...

Magdalena Pérez greets us from the Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology. She has been working there for three months, among other things, on the implementation of an MMB test, on the test of wood adhesive joints and on using accoustic...

During the week of March 5th-9th, 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. Frederic Laurin (ONERA) and Dr. Giuseppe Catalanotti (Queen's University, Belfast). Dr. Laurin will give us 4...

The contribution A 3D Progressive Failure Model for predicting pseudo-ductility in hybrid unidirectional composite materials under fibre tensile loading  by J.M. Guerrero et al. has been published in the journal Composites: Part A. A 3D failure model is proposed that includes progressive damage and pseudo-ductile...

Three contributions from AMADE members have been presented in MATCOMP 2017 (San Sebastián): Pérez-Galmés, J. Renart, C. Sarrado, J.Costa and A.Rodríguez-Bellido’s contribution “Configuración del ensayo ELS para la determinación de la tenacidad a la fractura en modo II en uniones adhesivas” proposes a strategy to successfully...

A stay of three months of the student Aida Cameselle, from the EPFL (Switzerland) has concluded on May 31th. Her work has focused on the study of 3D crack propagation in GFRP (Glass Fibre Reinforced Plates) using cohesive elements in FE simulations. She has been...
