Albertino Arteiro received a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering - Specialisation in Structural Engineering and Machine Design - from the Faculty of Engineering - University of Porto in 2012, and a Doctoral Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the same University in 2016, with a thesis entitled “Structural Mechanics of Thin-Ply Laminated Composites”, with the supervision of Prof. Pedro P. Camanho and Dr. Giuseppe Catalanotti, funded by a Doctoral Studentship of the Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation (FCT) and in collaboration with AIRBUS (Hamburg, Germany) in the scope of project “2genComp – Second Generation Composites”. During his Doctoral Programme, Albertino Arteiro was a Visiting Student Researcher at the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics of Stanford University, with the supervision of Prof. Stephen W. Tsai.
Albertino Arteiro is currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEMec) of the Faculty of Engineering – University of Porto in the scope of project “IAMAT – Introduction of advanced materials technologies into new product development for the mobility industries”, in the scope of programme MIT Portugal, under scientific supervision of Prof. Pedro P. Camanho. Albertino Arteiro is collaborating and contributing in the definition and implementation of numerical models at different length-scales to represent the mechanisms of deformation and failure of nano-reinforced thin-ply laminates, using nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, and in the definition and implementation of experimental test programmes for calibration and validation of the numerical models.
His research interests include the structural mechanics of advanced composites, fracture mechanics, numerical modelling at different length-scales, constitutive modelling, design and analysis based on new concepts, and nano-composites and nano-reinforcements.
