E-prints UPC cobreix dues finalitats: per una banda, és el dipòsit institucional de la UPC que recull els articles de revista, les comunicacions de congrés i els reports de recerca generats en les activitats de recerca del personal docent i investigador de la universitat; per l'altra, és una eina que permet accelerar la producció científica, allotjant versions de documents prèvies a la publicació en una revista o a les actes d’un congrés.

L'objectiu d'E-Prints UPC és augmentar la visibilitat i l'accessibilitat d'aquests documents, així com garantir la seva preservació. Els membres de la UPC interessats a dipositar documents en accés obert, si us plau contacteu amb Info.Biblioteques@upc.edu

E-prints has two aims: it is the UPC's institutional repository, collecting journal articles, conference papers and research reports generated in the research activities of the University's teaching and research staff; and it is a tool for accelerating scientific output by hosting pre-print versions of journal articles and conference papers.

The aim of UPC E-prints is to increase the visibility and accessibility of these documents and ensure their preservation. Members of the UPC who are interested in depositing documents in open-access form should contact Info.Biblioteques@upc.edu

    González Paez, Claudia; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this communication we propose a way to estimate net thrust and torque applied at the excavation front by cutting tools from EPB machines when they are working in mixed faces constituted by soils and soft rock. The ...

    The Passivhaus standard (PS) provides the foundations for improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gases in the housing sector. In the current Spanish context, several energy certification alternatives are ...
  • Reoptimization of dynamic flexgrid optical networks after link failure repairs 

    Zotkiewicz, Mateusz; Ruiz Ramírez, Marc; Klinkowski, Miroslaw; Pioro, Michal; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In dynamic flexgrid optical networks, the usage of capacity may not be optimal due to the permanent process of setting up and tearing down connections, which, if not controlled, leads to spectrum fragmentation and, as a ...
  • A random walk solution for modeling solute transport with network reactions and multi-rate mass transfer in heterogeneous systems: Impact of biofilms 

    Henri, Christopher Vincent; Fernández García, Daniel (Elsevier, 2015-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The interplay between the spatial variability of the aquifer hydraulic properties, mass transfer due to sub-grid heterogeneity and chemical reactions often complicates reactive transport simulations. It is well documented ...
