Nuno Manuel Mendes Maia
Prof. Nuno Manuel Mendes Maia received his habilitation in mechanical engineering in 2001 from Instituto Superior Tecnico, University of Lisbon. Prof. Maia has authored and co-authored two textbooks and about 200 scientific publications in international journals and conference proceedings on the subject of modal analysis and structural dynamics. He obtained his first degree in 1978 and his master\'s degree in 1985, both in mechanical engineering from Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), University of Lisbon. He received his PhD in mechanical vibrations (1989) from Imperial College London, UK. His current research interests are modal analysis and modal testing, updating of finite element models, coupling and structural modification, damage detection in structures, modeling of damping, transmissibility in multiple degree-of-freedom systems, and force identification.
