The GRIDS Research Group, established in 2003 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Aveiro, Portugal, was originally dedicated to the study and development of numerical simulation software applied to engineering problems. With its growth and consolidation along the years, the group has evolved to a large number of members in a wide variety of research engineering areas, dealing not only with computational modelling and simulation but also with experimental analysis and, more recently, automation aspects applied to engineering systems.
Within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and since the beginning, the group has been involved in a number of activities not only related to advanced studies (doctoral and master courses), but also playing a strong role in the undergraduate part of the formation of the future entrepreneur engineers and researchers, for both national and international markets. Nowadays, the GRIDS research group counts with more than 50 extremely active members, internationally recognised by the research community through a number of scientific prizes along the last years.

GRIDS Research Divisions
The group has grown significantly during the last few years and is now structured in six interconnected research divisions. The six divisions are DAPS (Division of Armour & Protection Systems), DiMEO (Division of Mechanical Engineering Optimisation), DiFrACT (Division of Fracture & Advanced Computational Techniques), DiPForm (Division of Plastic Forming), DiSDyn (Division of Structural Dynamics) and DiMould (Division of Moulds and Computational Fluids). For further information on the research activities of these divisions please follow the links on the right banner on this page.
