ABOUT Dr. Pedro Martins

Pedro Sousa Martins obtained his PhD in 2010 from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto, in the area of Biomechanics, more precisely in - Experimental and numerical studies of soft biological tissues. His main research domains are: -Development of mechanical models: Hyperelastic, viscoelastic and damage for fibered biological soft tissues. -Mechanical testing of Biomaterials and biological soft tissues (Mainly human soft tissues) -Women pelvic Floor: Disease induced changes on the mechanical properties of pelvic tissues. -Women breast: Mechanical properties of breast skin, ligaments and mammary tissue. -Male urethral-sphincter mechanisms: Mechanical properties of the urinary sphincter and urethra; urinary continence related problems. -Optimization Algorithms: applied to inverse problems in biomechanics. -Digital image processing and analysis: Applied to the mechanical testing of large deformations, specially hyperelastic materials. -Mechanical properties of polymeric concrete - thermal fatigue effects. -Numerical simulation of composite structures (b beams and plates) using RBFs (Radial Basis Functions) He has authored 25 research papers in international peer-reviewed journals with a H-index of 7, corresponding to 288 citations (Scopus database). He as 55 publications in proceedings of International Scientific Meetings and 32 publications in proceedings of National Scientific Meetings.
