Eloy Rubio Blanco, MS, ME

Mr. Eloy Rubio is an Associate Engineer at the National Biomechanics Institute. He holds two Masters degrees: a Master of Engineering (ME) in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, as well as a Master and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering with a Mechanical Engineering concentration from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain.

Mr. Rubio’s current research focuses on accident reconstruction, automotive software development and crash simulation. He has previous research experience focused on high-performance motorcycle helmet safety studies applying Finite Element Analysis (CAE). He has also been involved in powertrain and engine electronic control development, vehicle performance evaluation and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) related to the automotive industry.

Previously, he worked as a researcher for the Armour College of Engineering in Chicago investigating a new concept of six-stroke adaptive internal combustion engine technology for the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). He has expertise in PC-Crash, accident reconstruction, vehicle inspection, and biomechanics injury evaluation. Mr. Rubio has demonstrated Computer-Aided Engineering aptitude in thermal and structural analysis using Finite Elements Methods to evaluate safety and reliability in Hypermesh, Abaqus and ANSYS.

Mr. Rubio has experience as a Mechanical Engineer for the French telecommunications industry conducting the structural analysis, computational testing, and certification of more than 100 telecom systems throughout France including the design of critical components under material regulations. He is also involved in human development and pro-bono engineering projects in Africa.
