• #### A model for estimating the impact of the domino effect on accident frequencies in quantitative risk assessments of storage facilities ﻿

(2013-11)
Article
Restricted access - publisher's policy
It is well known that the domino effect can have a major impact on accidents in storage facilities, as it can increase the consequences of an initial event considerably. However, quantitative risk assessments (QRAs) do not ...
• #### A model for grain-size sorting over tidal sand ridges ﻿

(2004-07)
Article
Restricted access - publisher's policy
A model was developed and analyzed to quantify the effect of graded sediment on the formation of tidal sand ridges. Field data reveal coarse (fine) sediment at the crests (in the troughs), but often phase shifts between ...
• #### A model for non-free circle actions ﻿

(1997)
Article
Open Access
Let $\Phi: \Bbb S^{1}\times M\longrightarrow M$ be a smooth action of the unit circle $\Bbb S^{1}$ on a manifold $M$. In this work, we compute the minimal model of $M$ in terms of the orbit space $B$ and the fixed point ...
• #### A model for opinion agreement and confidence in multi-expert multi-criteria decision making ﻿

(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Secció de Matemàtiques i Informàtica, 2004)
Article
Open Access
In multi-expert multi-criteria decision making problems, we often have to deal with different opinions, different importance of criteria and experts, missing data, unexpressed opinions and experts who are not fully ...
• #### A model for railway induced ground vibrations in the frame of preliminary assessment studies ﻿

(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2007-07-13)

• #### A model for revocation forecasting in public-key infrastructures ﻿

(2015-05-01)
Article
Restricted access - publisher's policy
One of the hardest tasks of a certification infrastructure is to manage revocation. This process consists in collecting and making the revocation status of certificates available to users. Research on this topic has focused ...
• #### A model for rockill compressibility ﻿

(Institution of Civil Engineers (http://www.ice.org.uk/), 2001)
Article
Open Access
The paper presents a macroscopic constitutive model for rockill that includes the effect of water on compressibility and collapse phenomena. Breakage of rock particles and fracture propagation are basic underlying mechanisms ...
• #### A model for sand ridges on the shelf: effect of tidal and steady currents ﻿

(2001-05)
Article
Open Access
The dynamics of sand ridges, as observed on the innershelves and midshelves of various coastal seas, are investigated within the framework of an idealized model. These seabed undulations include shoreface-connected sand ...
• #### A Model for the analysis of concrete dams due to environmental thermal effects ﻿

(Emerald, 1996)
Article
Open Access
In this article, an analytical model is presented for the simulation of the thermal behavior of dams that are subjected to the environmental thermal action during service. The method of solution adopted as well as the ...
• #### A model for the global airport network based in the intermediation degree of the edges ﻿

(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-07-25)
Bachelor thesis
Open Access
Many real networks as the World Wide Web, the telephone and electrical networks and transportation (including air routes), biological or social systems belong to a category called ―small-world scale-free‖. The features of ...

• #### A model for the ultrasonic detection of surface-breaking cracks by the scanning laser source technique ﻿

(2004-01)
Article
Open Access
A model for the scanning laser source (SLS) technique is presented. The SLS is a novel laser-based inspection method for the ultrasonic detection of small surface-breaking cracks. The generated ultrasonic signal is monitored ...
• #### A model grid for the spectral analysis of X-ray emission in young Type Ia supernova remnants ﻿

(2005-08)
Article
Restricted access - publisher's policy
We address a new set of models for the spectral analysis of the X-ray emission from young, ejecta-dominated Type Ia supernova remnants. These models are based on hydrodynamic simulations of the interaction between Type Ia ...
• #### A model in price formation ﻿

(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07)
Master thesis
Open Access
In this thesis a particular example of a price formation model was studied. The model consist of a (large) group of buyers and a (large) group of vendors trading a particular good at a certain price. The model is given by ...
