Description and Objectives

The purpose of the Group on Structural Integrity (GSI) is to promote the development of new knowledge, to engage in the dissemination of best design project methodologies in mechanical and structural components to bring economic, environmental and social benefits to society. The focus is the development of integrated analytical/ numerical/ experimental models for the structural integrity and to reach safe and environmental friendly structures, constructions and components.

The GSI activities are mainly developed under the follow topics:

  • Fatigue and Fracture of metallic materials, particularly aluminium alloys;
  • Fatigue of welded and bonded joints, for different base materials and advanced joining methods;
  • Tribological behaviour of mechanical and biomechanical systems;
  • Mechanical behaviour of advanced composite: nanocomposites and damage;
  • Developments in biomechanics to the improvement of human mobility, such as: sport actions, ergonomic, dentistry and orthopedic prosthesis, movement control, gait analysis, occupant dynamic analysis for crashworthiness and vehicle safety related research and design.
  • Developments on concrete materials: safety, rehabilitation, new materials and technologies for bridges.
