  • Mapping and holistic design of natural hydraulic lime mortars (33 citations)
  • In-plane behavior of cavity masonry infills and strengthening with textile reinforced mortar (29 citations)
  • Structural assessment and seismic vulnerability of earthen historic structures. Application of sophisticated numerical and simple analytical models (24 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Structural engineering
  • Composite material
  • Statistics

Paulo B. Lourenço spends much of his time researching Masonry, Structural engineering, Unreinforced masonry building, Mortar and Finite element method. His Masonry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Numerical analysis, Structural system and Composite material, Stiffness, Homogenization. His Structural engineering study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Discrete element method and Brick.

His Unreinforced masonry building research incorporates elements of Frame, Linear elasticity and Mode. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Mortar, concentrating on Compressive strength and frequently concerns with Flexural strength, Cement and Artificial neural network.
