Catherine Doneux

Funding: Regional SKYWIN project
Supervisor(s): Thomas Pardoen

graduated as Civil Engineer at University of Liege in 1992. She began her career with a first experience on the assessment of an existing prestressed railway bridge. Thanks to several FNRS grants, she obtained a PhD degree in the domain of steel-concrete composite structures under seismic action in 2002 and was involved in several researches on paraseismic design at ULg until 2005. After some career break, she joined UCLouvain in December 2008 to take part to the development of new composite activities related to various applied research projects in collaboration with the industry (aeronautics) Her main fields of expertise are the mechanical characterization of composite materials by mechanical testing, the quality control of the standardised tests and the development of new tests. She has also some experience in fatigue testing, damage characterization and fracture mechanics. She is currently working on the preforming of composite thermoset prepreg fabrics.
