  • 3D numerical model of a confined fracture tests in concrete 

    Montenegro, Oscar Ivan; Sfer, Domingo; López Garello, Carlos María; Carol, Ignacio (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The paper deals with the numerical simulation of a confined fracture test in concrete. The test is part of the experimental work carried out at ETSECCPB-UPC in order to elucidate the existence of a second mode of fracture ...
  • Analysis of cracking resistance of bituminous mixtures under monotonic and cyclic loads 

    Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Botella Nieto, Ramón (Springer, 2016)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Although cracking resistance is one of the most important properties affecting the durability of asphalt mixtures, this property is often not considered as a requirement in the mixture design stage, and the bitumen content ...
  • Effect of ageing and water action on the cracking resistance of asphalt mixtures 

    López Montero, Teresa; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Botella Nieto, Ramón (Springer, 2016)
    Conference lecture

    Cracking in asphalt layers is one of the most frequent distress mechanisms in flexible pavements due to thermal stresses and traffic loads. Furthermore, the ageing phenomenon along with moisture damage are the key factors ...
  • Effect of bitumen type and content on the cracking resistance of asphalt mixtures at different temperatures 

    Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Botella Nieto, Ramón (Springer, 2016)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Bitumen type and content are two of the variables that most influence on the cracking resistance of an asphalt mixture, since both determine a more or less ductile fracture. Furthermore, this cracking resistance will be ...
  • Estado de la resistencia a la fisuración de las mezclas bituminosas: ensayos Fénix y EBADE 

    Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Botella Nieto, Ramón; Valdés Vidal, Gonzalo A. (2011-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Este artículo propone el empleo de dos ensayos desarrollados por el Laboratorio de Caminos de la Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña, uno estático de tracción (ensayo Fénix) y otro cíclico de tracción-compresión (ensayo ...
  • Sources of error and limits of applying the energetic-based-regularization method 

    Aissaoui, N.; Matallah, M. (CIMNE, 2015)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this work, the energetic regularization technique based on the Crack Band approach is studied. The main objective is to identify the sources of errors related to the application of such technique under 2D and 3D ...
