Miguel Azenha
University of Minho

Miguel Azenha is a member of the permanent staff of the Structural Division in the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Minho.

He has obtained is PhD degree in Civil Engineering in 2009 at the University of Porto, Portugal, with a co-supervised work involving a stay/supervisor at the University of Tokyo, Japan.

His research interests comprise: 1) numerical and experimental study of concrete at early ages regarding phenomena such as thermo-hygral-mechanical couplings, concrete properties evolution during hydration, creep and shrinkage; 2) use of digital processes in construction, namely Building Information Modelling.

He is the Director of the ERASMUS+ Master Course in Building Information Modelling, Deputy Coordinator of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action European Training network – Innovative Training Network

(ETN ITN) – SUBLime - Sustainable Building Lime Applications Via Circular Economy and Biomimetic Approaches.

He is the current Chair of RILEM TC 287-CCS “Early age and long-term crack width analysis in RC Structures”, past deputy-chair of RILEM TC 254-CMS “Thermal cracking of massive concrete structures” and past Chair of COST Action TU1404 “Towards the next generation of standards for service life of cement-based materials and structures”.

Member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Advanced Concrete Technology.
