  • Numerical continuation in classical mechanics and thermodynamics 

    Gimenez, Aleix; chausse, victor; Meseguer Serrano, Álvaro (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, modern numerical continuation methodologies are presented as a way of understanding and computing multiplicity of solutions in undergraduate physics problems. Mechanical and thermodynamical problems are used ...
  • Onshore sandbar migration in the surf zone: new insights into the wave-induced sediment transport mechanisms 

    Fernández Mora, María de los Ángeles; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Falqués Serra, Albert; de Swart, Huib E. (2015-04-28)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a novel process-based morphodynamic model, which includes transport processes due to both velocity and acceleration skewness and a new formulation for intrawave motions, that successfully simulates observations ...
  • Dynamics of axially localized states in Taylor-Couette flows 

    López Alonso, José Manuel; Marqués Truyol, Francisco (2015-05-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present numerical simulations of the flow confined in a wide gap Taylor-Couette system, with a rotating inner cylinder and variable length-to-gap aspect ratio. A complex experimental bifurcation scenario differing from ...
  • Dynamics of shoreface-connected and inactive sand ridges on a shelf, Part 2: The role of sea level rise and associated changes in shelf geometry 

    Nnafie, Abdel; de Swart, Huib E.; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Garnier, Roland Charles (2015-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Many inner continental shelves are characterized by the presence of large rhythmic bedforms, such as shoreface-connected ridges and the more offshore located sand ridges, which have heights of several meters and are spaced ...
  • Snow bands over the Gulf of Finland in wintertime 

    Mazón Bueso, Jordi; Niemelä, Sami; Pino González, David; Savijärvi, Hannu; Vihma, Timo (2015-01-16)
    Article
    Open Access
    Large shore-parallel, quasi-stationary snow bands are occasionally observed over the Gulf of Finland during wintertime when the sea is not frozen. On the basis of Weather Research and Forecasting mesoscale model experiments ...
  • Historical, hydraulic, hydrological and meteorological reconstruction of 1874 Santa Tecla flash floods in Catalonia (NE Iberian Peninsula) 

    Ruiz Bellet, Josep Lluís; Balasch Solanes, Josep Carles; Tuset Mestre, Jordi; Barriendos Valve, Mariano; Mazón Bueso, Jordi; Pino González, David (Elsevier, 2015-03-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A multidisciplinary methodology for historical floods reconstruction was applied to 1874 Santa Tecla floods occurred in Catalonia (NE Iberian Peninsula), using both historical information and meteorological data from ...
  • Simulació numèrica de fronts costaners nocturns a la conca de la Mediterrània 

    Mazón Bueso, Jordi; Pino González, David (2014-12-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    During the night, inland air cools faster than the air near the coast or above the water bodies (in our case the Mediterranean Sea). Due to this temperature difference, the colder air moves offshore driven by drainage wind ...
  • Role of the nocturnal coastal-front depth on cloud formation and precipitation in the Mediterranean basin 

    Mazón Bueso, Jordi; Pino González, David (2015-02-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Ten nocturnal coastal front events formed in the Mediterranean basin are simulated and analyzed, focusing on the coastal-front depth by using version 3.3 of the WRF-ARW mesoscale model. During the night the inland air cools ...
  • Transitions between symmetric and nonsymmetric regimes in binary-mixture convection 

    Meca Alvarez, Esteban; Mercader Calvo, María Isabel; Ramírez de la Piscina Millán, Laureano (Elsevier, 2015-05-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present here a comprehensive picture of the different bifurcations found for small to moderate Rayleigh number in binary-mixture convection with lateral heating and negative separation ratio (S). The present work connects ...
  • Study of a prototypical convective boundary layer observed during BLLAST: contributions by large-scale forcings 

    Pietersen, Henk; Vilà Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Augustin, P; van de Boer, Anneke; de Coster, Olivier; Delbarre, Hervé; Durand, Pierre; Fourmentin, M; Gioli, Beniamino; Hartogensis, Oskar; Lohou, Fabienne; Lothon, Marie; Ouwersloot, Huug; Pino González, David; Reuder, Joachim (2015-04-24)
    Article
    Open Access
    We study the influence of the large-scale at- mospheric contribution to the dynamics of the convective boundary layer (CBL) in a situation observed during the Boundary Layer Late Afternoon and ...
