Apresentação Pessoal

Lucas FM da Silva is Full Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). He obtained his PhD in structural adhesive bonding of composites from the University of Bristol (United Kingdom) in 2004 and Aggregation from FEUP in 2011.

 He leads the Advanced Joining Processes Unit (AJPU) of the Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering (INEGI) composed of approximately 40 members post-doc, doctoral students and master students. The work includes the development welded joints, joints by plastic deformation and adhesively bonded joints. The research methodology is based on the mechanical characterization of materials and joints in terms of strength and fracture, modeling with analytical models and finite elements supported by careful experimental tests.

 He coordinated 25 research projects mostly funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and the European Commission.

 He published 437 articles from the Web of Science (382 as author and 55 as editor), 43 books (17 as author and 26 as editor) and 59 international book chapters. His works were cited 15939 times and correspond to an h index of 65 (SCOPUS, 26/4/2023).

One of his articles won the SAGE Best Paper Award 2010 and Donald Julius Groen Prize 2010 (both awards given by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers). He received the FEUP Scientific Excellence Award in 2013 and a second time in 2018. He was awarded the Pedagogical Excellence Award in 2023.

 He is editor-in-chief of The Journal of Adhesion (Taylor & Francis), Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part L: Journal of Materials: Design and Applications (Sage), International Journal of Mechanical Engineering Education (Sage), Journal of Advanced Joining Processes (Elsevier), U. Porto Journal of Engineering (University of Porto), Discover Mechanical Engineering (Springer) and Journal of Machine Design and Automation Intelligence (De Gruyter). He recently launched the Springer Proceedings of Engineering Mechanics: Research, Technology and Education book series. He is also the editor of two Springer book series (Advanced Structured Materials and Springer Briefs in Engineering: Computational Mechanics).

 He organizes international conferences on joining technologies (Adhesive Bonding, Industrial Applications of Adhesives and Advanced Joining Processes), materials and structures (Materials Design and Applications, Mechanics of Solids, Durability, Repair and Maintenance of Structures and Vehicle Body Engineering), manufacturing (Engineering Manufacture), machine design (Machine Design) and education (Science and Technology Education).

 He founded and presides over the Portuguese Adhesion and Adhesives Association, which belongs to the European Group of Adhesion Societies (EURADH).

 He has 13 patents mainly on production methods and testing of structural adhesive bonds. He developed a commercial software available online (jointdesigner) to design adhesive joints. He does consulting work for national (e.g. Bosch, Amtrol, Frezite, etc.) and international companies (e.g. Nagase Chemtex, Henkel, Aston Martin, Honda, John Deere, Safran, Infineon, etc.).
