About the author (2011)

Miguel Vaz Jr. heads the research group "Development and Application of Numerical Methods to Continuum Mechanics" at the State University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in 1998 from the Swansea University, UK. He has worked in multi-physics and coupled problems, especially computational plasticity, thermo-mechanical coupling and polymer melt flow.

Eduardo A. de Souza Neto is a Reader at the School of Engineering, Swansea University, UK. He received his Ph.D. in 1994 from Swansea University for his work in computational plasticity. He has dedicated his research activities to the development of constitutive models and numerical algorithms aimed at large strain inelasticity. He authored key papers on finite element technology, finite strain plasticity and damage mechanics and has been more recently publishing articles on multi-scale methods in non-linear solid mechanics. He is also the author of a textbook on computational methods for plasticity.

Pablo Andrés Muñoz-Rojas leads the "Computational Mechanics Laboratory" at the State University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. He obtained his Ph.D. degree at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, with research on the application of optimization techniques to metal forming problems. He has focused his work on numerical techniques for sensitivity analysis, parameter identification of elastic-plastic properties and viscoelasticity.
