    • Natural convection in a horizontal cylinder with axial rotation 

      Sánchez Casals, Odalys de la Caridad; Mercader Calvo, María Isabel; Batiste Boleda, Oriol; Alonso, Arantxa (AMER PHYSICAL SOC, 2016-06-23)
      Article
      Open Access
      We study the problem of thermal convection in a laterally heated horizontal cylinder rotating about its axis. A cylinder of aspect ratio Gamma = H/2R = 2 containing a small Prandtl number fluid (sigma = 0.01) representative ...

      This work aims at providing a tool for supporting cognitive rehabilitation. This is a wide field, that includes a variety of diseases and related clinical pictures; for this reason the need arises to have a tool available ...
    • On the time decay of solutions for non-simple elasticity with voids 

      Liu, Zhuangyi; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (Wiley-VCH, 2016-07-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In this work we consider the non-simple theory of elastic material with voids and we investigate how the coupling of these two aspects of the material affects the behavior of the solutions. We analyze only two kind of ...
    • Epoxy sol-gel hybrid thermosets 

      Serra Albet, Àngels; Ramis Juan, Xavier; Fernández Francos, Xavier (MDPI AG, 2016-02-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Sol-gel methodologies are advantageous in the preparation of hybrid materials in front of the conventional addition of nanoparticles, because of the fine dispersion of the inorganic phase that can be reached in epoxy ...
    • In situ photoelectron spectroscopy study of ethanol steam reforming over RhPd nanoparticles and RhPd/CeO2 

      Jiménez Divins, Nuria; Llorca Piqué, Jordi (2016-05-25)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In situ X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) was carried out over model Rh0.5Pd0.5 nanoparticles and Rh0.5Pd0.5 nanoparticles supported on CeO2 following exposure to oxygen at 573-823 K, to hydrogen at 573 K (activation ...
    • Silicone microreactors for the photocatalytic generation of hydrogen 

      Castedo Rodriguez, Alejandra; Mendoza Gómez, Ernesto; Angurell Purroy, Inmaculada; Llorca Piqué, Jordi (2016-09-15)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A silicone microreactor with 500 mu m-width microchannels coated with a Au/TiO2 photocatalyst was manufactured and tested for the photocatalytic generation of hydrogen from gaseous water-ethanol mixtures under dynamic ...
    • Comparison of two PV array models for the simulation of PV systems using five different algorithms for the parameters identification 

      Kichou, Sofiane; Silvestre Bergés, Santiago; Guglielminotti, Letizia; Mora-López, Llanos; Muñoz-Cerón, Emilio (2016-07-15)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Simulation is of primal importance in the prediction of the produced power and automatic fault detection in PV grid-connected systems (PVGCS). The accuracy of simulation results depends on the models used for main components ...
    • Mobile Autonomous Sensing Unit (MASU): a framework that supports distributed pervasive data sensing 

      Medina Medina, Esunly; López Nuevo, David Andrés; Meseguer Pallarès, Roc; Ochoa, Sergio; Royo Vallés, María Dolores; Santos, Rodrigo (2016-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      Pervasive data sensing is a major issue that transverses various research areas and application domains. It allows identifying people’s behaviour and patterns without overwhelming the monitored persons. Although there are ...
    • Integration of GMR sensors with different technologies 

      Cubells Beltrán, M. Dolores; Reig Escriva, Abilio Càndid; Madrenas Boadas, Jordi; De Marcellis, A.; Santos, Joana; Cardoso, Susana; Freitas, P.P. (2016-06-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Less than thirty years after the giant magnetoresistance (GMR) effect was described, GMR sensors are the preferred choice in many applications demanding the measurement of low magnetic fields in small volumes. This rapid ...
    • Stochastic model predictive control based on Gaussian processes applied to drinking water networks 

      Wang, Ye; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016-05-16)
      Article
      Open Access
      This study focuses on developing a stochastic model predictive control (MPC) strategy based on Gaussian processes (GPs) for propagating system disturbances in a receding horizon way. Using a probabilistic system representation, ...
