Structural Composites

The Structural Composites research group (SC) is leaded by Prof. Joaquim Barros and has the following main research areas: fibre reinforced concrete and fibre reinforced polymers for new construction and for the retrofitting of the built environmental; bituminous materials, road infrastructures and their conditions for connected and autonomous vehicles, including systems for safe protection of pedestrians; computational mechanics; BIM and digital processes in construction.

Overview

Group SC - Structural Composites

This research involves multidisciplinary and complementary fields and has been supported by the high capacity of SC to get projects funded by FCT, EU, in co-promotion and demonstration with the industry, and from specialized consultancy. SC has members in several technical committees of fib, ACI and RILEM, and has organized regularly national and international events, some of them of highest reputation in SC’s key-research areas.

The SC coordinates the European Master BIM A+ and FRP++. SC has had an excellent record on forming PhD and MSc students, with a high percentage supported by PhD-grants obtained in competitive regime. Since SC formation, the publication per staff member in ISI journals varied between 1.7 to 4.
