University of Porto, Portugal


José A. Correia, born 1984 in Peso da Régua, Portugal, is Researcher of LOME/INEGI and CONSTRUCT of the University of Porto (Portugal). He is also Invited Assistant Professor at the structural mechanics section of the University of Coimbra. Since 2018, he is Guest Teacher at the Engineering Structures Department of the Delft University of Technology (Netherlands). He obtained B.S. (2007) and M.S. (2009) degrees in civil engineering by the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro, Vila Real, Portugal. He is specialist in steel and composite (steel and concrete) construction by the University of Coimbra in 2010. He received Ph.D. degree in civil engineering by University of Porto in 2015. Since 2008, he has lectured several unit courses, such as steel structures; timber structures; fatigue and fracture mechanics; steel structures for offshore and renewable energies; structural engineering design. He is coauthor of more 40 scientific journal papers in the most relevant scientific journals devoted to structural integrity, fatigue and fracture of engineering materials and structures, 80 proceedings in international and national conferences, congresses and workshops, and 1 chapter book about local approaches applied in the fatigue crack propagation modelling. In Scopus platform, he is author and/or coauthor of 58 documents in the most relevant scientific journals and he has an h-index equal to 12. In Google Scholar platform he has an h-index and 10-index equal to 14 and 18, respectively, with more than 600 citations.Proof of the international recognition of the scientific activities was the recent appointment (since January 2017) of José António Correia to chairman of the technical committee called ESIS TC12. His current research interests are behaviour to fatigue and fracture of materials and structures; probabilistic fatigue modelling of metallic materials; probabilistic design of glass structural elements.
