About the editors

LUCAS FILIPE MARTINS DA SILVA is currently a Professor at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto (FEUP). His work covers a wide range of engineering structural adhesives such as epoxies, acrylics and bismaleimides. Several test methods for adhesive joints are available at the FEUP, including various joint configurations such as bulk specimens, lap shear joints and butt joints. In addition to experimental work, detailed analytical models and finite element analyses of stresses and strains within the joints are also undertaken.
