Comportamento Estrutural de Pilares Construídos com CBPB. 

This work is part of a research project for the use of CBPB (Cement-Bonded ParticleBoards) as
structural material and aims to explore the possibility to use CBPB as structural elements, predominantly subjected to compressive forces – columns. In this dissertation issues related to the compressive strength of CBPB, the behaviour of some types of connections and proposals for the detailing of columns, are studied.

Comportamento Estrutural de Ligações Dissipativas em Painéis de Fachada Pré-fabricados

The precast as a construction technique has several advantages, such as the increased strength and durability of concrete, the reduction of time and the necessity of fewer workers in the construction site, which leads to the reduction of the global cost of the construction.

High Seismic Performance Beam-Column Connection

The present work refers to the study of seismic behavior and retrofitting of beam-column connections. The motivation of this work relates to the need of improve or increase the safety of structures in relation to seismic actions.

This work arises from the requirement of SMAS (Almada) to make a sustainable management of its vast architectural heritage. So it was decided to make a general assessment of the conservation status of seven water towers belonging to the water supply system to the population. Accordingly to the general assessment made on the water towers it could be said that in general, the water towers are in a reasonable condition with the exception of Cassapo and Estrelinha.This analysis allowed sort priorities with regard to the rehabilitation.

Contribuição para o Conhecimento do Efeito de Cristalização de Sais na Alterabilidade de Arenitos. Aplicação ao Património Edificado de Atouguia da Baleia

This work intends to be the beginning of a process of study about the importance of sandstones in Portuguese cultural heritage.

The author refers to important monuments all over the world and in Portugal where sandstones are widely used. Atouguia da Baleia village is an example and it constitutes the case study of the present work.
