S. (Stefan) Chaves Figueiredo


Bachelor’s degree in civil production engineering at Federal Center for Technological Education of Minas Gerais (CEFET-MG) (2011). Master degree in Civil Engineering at CEFET-MG with master thesis titled as “ The influence of autoclave cure in the performance of cementitious composites reinforced with cellulose pulp and submitted to accelerated aging cycles“. Teaching experience for technical and bachelors level lecturing construction materials.


My research focus is in the development of new materials, especially fibre reinforced cementitious composites. Currently I am working in the development of smart cementitious composites. Strain hardening cementitious composites were modified to be used in extrusion based additive manufacturing (3D printing) and some enhanced properties were added, such as piezoresistive behaviour and enhanced autogenous self-healing capacity.
