Steel and Mixed Construction Technologies

The Steel and Mixed Construction Technologies (SMCT) group is coordinated by Luís Simões da Silva from the University of Coimbra and consists of 17 PhD members (65% faculty and 35% postdocs). SMCT addresses the societal challenges of security, industry 4.0, blue economy, energy, cities of the future and climate change effects, focusing on buildings, bridges and infrastructures, wind towers and offshore structures.

Overview

Group SMCT - Steel and Mixed Construction Technologies

Security covers the resilience of infrastructures to accidental actions (e.g. fire and seismic) and new risks (climate change or terrorist attacks). Industry 4.0 aims to develop disruptive products/solutions using a multidisciplinary holistic approach covering the characterization and improvement of material properties, integration of technologies and production processes and assembling.

Energy and the blue economy use the sea resources with new and improved solutions for the exploitation of renewable energy/safe extraction of fossil fuels and the quantification of the risk of exceptional hazards on offshore structures. Cities of the Future and Climate Change effects aim to develop adaptive housing and building solutions in line with the demography/well-being of populations.
