Rodrigo Gonçalves honoured at the "9th International Conference on Thin-Walled Structures"


Rodrigo Gonçalves, professor and researcher at the Department of Civil Engineering, recently received the "Outstanding Paper Award" in the "Analytical Research" category at the "9th International Conference on Thin-Walled Structures".

The award recognised the work "Applications of the Geometrically Exact Beam Theory to Non-Prismatic Beams", which proposes a geometrically exact mathematical formulation to model the structural behaviour of thin-walled bars with variable cross-section, curved and/or pre-twisted axis, in the domain of large displacements and finite rotations.

The event, which brought together experts in the field, took place between 29 November and 1 December 2023 in Sydney, Australia.
