Rui Miranda Guedes research work has been developed on polymer based composite materials. His main interest is in durability and long-time prediction of mechanical behavior of composite structures. This includes modeling time-dependent behavior (viscoelastic/viscoplastic), hygrothermal effects and physical aging. More recently has been working in biodegradable medical devices for ligament repair. He acted as principal investigator in two research programs, funded by the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT), to develop biodegradable solutions for augmentation devices used for repairing ligaments (ACL).
