Lucas F M da Silva is currently Associate Professor with Aggregation at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and Director of the Integrated Master in Mechanical Engineering. He obtained his PhD in bonding of composites from the University of Bristol (UK) in 2004. He has published 166 ISI papers (137 as author and 29 as editor) and 18 books (6 as author and 12 as editor) mainly on adhesive joint mechanics. His papers were cited 2933 times and correspond to an h-index of 28 (SCOPUS, 24/06/2016).
He leads the Adhesives Group, composed of post-docs, PhD students and MSs students. The work covers adhesives mechanical characterization, especially in terms of fracture toughness, adhesive joint modelling with analytical models and finite element analysis supported by careful experimental testing. He has coordinated 14 research projects mostly funded by the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT).
(He is author of the 4 most cited papers published since 2009 of International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives. One of his papers obtained the SAGE Best Paper Award 2010 and Donald Julius Groen Prize 2010 (both awards given by Institution of Mechanical Engineers). He received in 2013 the Award of Scientific Excellence by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto.
He is editor in chief of The Journal of Adhesion and of Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part L: Journal of Materials: Design and Applications. He is also co-editor of 2 Springer book series (Advanced Structured Materials and Springer Briefs in Engineering: Computational Mechanics). He is member of the editorial board ofInternational Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives and Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology. He is reviewer of 48 ISI journals.
He organises international conferences on adhesive bonding and materials, and founded the Portuguese Adhesion Society that belongs to European Adhesion Societies Group (EURADH).
He has 2 pending Portuguese patents on graded joints and a mixed mode fracture apparatus. He developed a software for designing adhesive joints available online (jointdesigner). He is consultant of several national (e.g. Bosch, Amtrol) and international companies (e.g. Honda, Nagase Chemtex). He gives every year a course on adhesive bonding in the international conference on Joining in Car Body Engineering organized by Automotive Circle International which gathers the main car producers.
