Vice President of INEGI joins editorial board of world-renowned magazine in mechanical engineering

18 February 2021

Pedro Camanho, researcher and vice president of INEGI, and president of the Associated Laboratory of Energy, Transport and Aeronautics (LAETA), is the most recent member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Solids and Structures, a world renowned magazine in the field of mechanics of solids and structures. He is the only Portuguese to occupy a position in the editorial board of the magazine.

The international Elsevier publication focuses on "all aspects of the field from the more classical problems of structural analysis to mechanics of solids, including fracture, flow, wave propagation, heat transfer, thermal effects in solids, optimum design methods, model analysis, structural topology and numerical techniques. Interest extends to both inorganic and organic solids and structures.”.

It is important to highlight that the prestigious position arises from a very relevantacademic career in the area, since the researcher's work in the study and development of advanced composite materials is an international reference.

Full Professor at FEUP since 2014, Pedro Camanho is also a member of the Advisory Board of the European Mechanical Society (EUROMECH), a member of the Board of the European Composite Materials Society (ESCM) and of the Engineering Panel of the European Research Council (ERC). Most recently, the reseacher was named a fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society and researcher of the year at the University of Porto.
