    Open Access
    La propuesta es la “Formulación e Implementación tipo u-p de un Modelo Mecánico para el Análisis de la Desecación en Suelos”. Considero que este es un buen primer paso para lograr el objetivo final que es el estudio del ...
  • Simulation models for cranktrains of combustion engines 

    Müller, Holger (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-03-01)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The avoidance of excessive free forces and torsional vibration at cranktrains is essential for a long lifetime and silent operation of internal combustion engines. Hence numerical simulations of these properties play an ...
  • Aproximation of the Aeroacoustics sources with finite element techniques 

    Jazarevic, Vladimir (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-05-05)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this work a stabilized formulation of the nite element method for solving the incompressible Navier-Stokes equation and Lighthill's tensor for calculation of acoustic sources are presented. The important feature of ...
  • Coupling of numerical and statistical methods in acoustics 

    Díaz Cereceda, Cristina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-01-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Problems in the field of vibroacoustics can be modelled in two fundamental ways. On the one hand, they can be addressed in a deterministic way, using numerical methods like the Finite Element Method. On the other hand, ...
  • Modelación numérica del oleaje en zonas costeras con batimetría no constante mediante elementos finitos
