César Miguel Almeida Vasques

Short biography

Dr. César Vasques graduated in 2000 and got MSc and PhD pre-Bologna degrees in 2003 and 2008 in Mechanical Engineering from University of Porto, Portugal. During his post-graduation studies, he worked on vibration control of adaptive multi-functional structures. He was granted PhD and post-doc scholarships, and a Marie Curie visiting PhD student fellowship in 2004 for a 1 year stay at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), University of Southampton, UK. Since 2008 he has worked in R&D, technology transfer and consulting in dynamics, vibrations, structural acoustics, structural health monitoring and composite materials/structures. From 2009-14 he worked as Senior Researcher at INEGI-University of Porto, Portugal. From 2014-2018 he worked as invited Assistant Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the School of Engineering of Polytechnic of Porto (ISEP/P.PORTO). From 2014-2017 he worked as Senior R&D Engineer at EFACEC Energy SA, working on noise and vibration control problems in power transformers. From 2018-20 he was invited Assistant Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal, and currently he is Assistant Professor in the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Group, at the School of Technology and Management (ESTG), Polytechnic Institute of Viana do Castelo (IPVC), Viana do Castelo, Portugal.

Dr. Vasques publication outputs: 1 book by Springer in 2011, 5 book chapters, 20 articles in international journals (Google Scholar as of 29/06/2022: 773 citations | h-index: 13) and 3 in national journals, 45 articles in international and 13 in national conferences, 1 book review and 2 posters. He supervised 3 MSc, 3 PhD, 1 visiting PhD, 2 visiting scholars, 10 MSc research assistants, 1 laboratory technician and 3 engineers in industrial R&D activities. He was recipient of 4 prizes/distinctions (best national 2008 PhD thesis in Applied and Computational Mechanics; 1 best student article; 2 article highlights by IOP and Elsevier). He co-organized 1 ECCOMAS conference, organized 3 conference symposiums, chaired 8 conference sessions, has been scientific board member of 28 conferences and edited 4 sections of conference books. He has been Associate Editor of 8+ and Editorial Board member of 18+ international journals, scientific committee member of 29+ international conferences, reviewed 80+ manuscripts for 25+ international journals, given 6 invited talks, and participated in 20+ post-graduate/graduate juries. He is affiliated to 14 international professional organizations in engineering, acoustics, vibration and aerospace (e.g., AIAA, ASA, NAFEMS, IIAV, EURASEM, GEM1-EDA).

As a leading and independent scientist, he coordinated 13 R&D projects (e.g., 3 for ESA, 1 for EDA, and several others nationally funded) with a total budget under his responsibility of 4+ M€, and participated in 11 other R&D projects with a total budget of 7+ M€. He contacted professionally with more than 20 companies (e.g., CASSIDIAN, EADS, HPS, EMBRAER, EFACEC, ISQ, AIRWORKS). He has authored and co-authored 50+ technical reports. Worth to mention is the experience attained by Dr Vasques as project/technical manager of the qualification testing activities of project NeXA for HDRM (Non-Explosive Actuator for Hold-Down and Release Mechanisms) for ESA, the experience as project leader and project/technical manager of the project IMFC (Innovative Materials: Impact Detection by Functional Coatings) for European Defence Agency and the experience as work-package leader and technical manager of the material characterization and environmental (vibration, shock and thermal vacuum) testing activities for project RTM-EBOX (Thermally Conductive RTM CFRP) for ESA. Since 2014 Dr. Vasques has been cooperating with nationally R&D funding agencies as an Invited Expert for the evaluation of 100+ R&D projects (50+ M€ total budget) and since 2018 with the European Commission as Invited Expert in the evaluation of 10+ H2020 projects (28+ M€ total budget).

Dr. Vasques has sound R&D experience in experimental mechanics (e.g., composite materials, space qualification testing, vibration testing, experimental modal analysis, real-time vibration control, Matlab/Simulink, Labview) and computational mechanics (e.g., finite element modelling, rigid/flexible multibody dynamics). His field of expertise, current interests and activities cover mechanical, aerospace and energy engineering applications, somewhat related with multibody dynamics, vibration and damping, smart materials and structures, computational mechanics (deformation theories, finite element modeling, damping models and active structures), experimental mechanics (vibration testing, modal analysis, shock testing, materials characterization and NDT), mechatronics and structural control, structural acoustics, structural health monitoring (ultrasonic methods, vibration-based, electrical impedance, self-sensing), impact mechanics and wave propagation, composite structures (constitutive behavior, damage, crashworthiness, multi-scale mechanics), transformers noise and vibration, and additive manufacturing technologies for metals and polymers applied to new mechanical design concepts (geodesic lattice structures and 3D printed robotic systems).

Since 2002 Dr. Vasques has also a significant pedagogical experience, attested by several part- and full-time lecturing activities undertaken when lecturing 75+ Mechanical Engineering courses in Portuguese high education institutions, having produced 125+ pedagogical resources and supervised 160+ engineering students in 80+ graduation/post-graduation works.
