    • Ductile-brittle transition behaviour of PLA/o-MMT films during the physical aging process 

      Maspoch Rulduà, Mª Lluïsa; Santana Pérez, Orlando Onofre; Cailloux, Jonathan; Franco Urquiza, E; Rodríguez González, Cristina; Belzunce Varela, F. Javier; Martinez, A. B. (2015-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The ductile-brittle transition behaviour of organo modified montmorillonite-based Poly(lactic acid) films (PLA/o-MMT) was analysed using the Essential Work of Fracture (EWF) methodology, Small Punch Tests (SPT) and Enthalpy ...
    • Modified tannin extracted from black wattle tree as an environmentally friendly antifouling pigment 

      Peres, Rafael Silveira; Armelín Diggroc, Elaine Aparecida; Alemán Llansó, Carlos; Ferreira, Carlos Arthur (2015-03-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The use of modified black wattle tannin as an antifouling pigment is reported in this work. A mixture of tannin adsorbed in activated carbon (soluble fraction of tannin) and low soluble fraction of tannin was used as an ...
    • Improving the corrosion performance of hybrid sol-gel matrix by modification with phosphonic acid 

      Dalmoro, Viviane; Dos Santos, J.H.Z.; baibich, Lone M; Butler, Ian S; Armelín Diggroc, Elaine Aparecida; Alemán Llansó, Carlos; Azambuja, Denise S. (2015-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Sol–gel films were prepared using different ratios of two silica precursors, vinyltrimethoxysilane (VTMS) and tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS), targeting the anticorrosion treatment of aluminum alloy 2024-T3. The electrochemical ...
    • Tool for the identification and assessment of Environmental Aspects in Ports (TEAP) 

      Puig Duran, Martí; Wooldridge, Chris; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Darbra Roman, Rosa Maria (2015-08-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A new tool to assist port authorities in identifying aspects and in assessing their significance (TEAP) has been developed. The present research demonstrates that although there is a high percentage of European ports that ...
    • Consideration of human resources in the Mixed-model Sequencing Problem with Work Overload Minimization: Legal provisions and productivity improvement 

      Bautista Valhondo, Joaquín; Alfaro Pozo, Rocío; Batalla García, Cristina (2015)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Beginning with a variation of the sequencing problem in a mixed-products line (MMSP-W: Mixed-Model Sequencing Problem with Workload Minimization), we propose two new models that incorporate a set of working conditions in ...
    • Microbial community dynamics in two-chambered microbial fuel cells : effect of different ion exchange membranes 

      Sotres Fernandez, Ana; Diaz Marcos, Jordi; Guivernau Ribalta, Miriam; Illa Alibés, Josep; Magrí Aloy, Albert; Prenafeta Boldú, Francesc Xavier; Bonmatí Blasi, August; Viñas Canals, Marc (2015-08-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      BACKGROUND: The utilization of different kinds of ion exchange membrane is a common practice in bioelectrochemical systems such as two-chambered microbial fuel cells (MFCs). However, little is known about the effect of ...
    • Size distribution for potentially unstable rock masses and in situ rock blocks using LIDAR-generated digital elevation models 

      Mavrouli, Olga Christina; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Jaboyedoff, M. (2015-07-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In this paper, two analytical procedures which are independent from the existence of empirical data are presented for the calculation of (1) the size distribution of potentially unstable rock masses that expresses the ...
    • Very fast solution to the PnP problem with algebraic outlier rejection 

      Ferraz Colomina, Luis; Binefa, Xavier; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We propose a real-time, robust to outliers and accurate solution to the Perspective-n-Point (PnP) problem. The main advantages of our solution are twofold: first, it integrates the outlier rejection within the pose estimation ...
    • A factory of comparable corpora from Wikipedia 

      Barrón Cedeño, Luis Alberto; España Bonet, Cristina; Boldoba Trapote, Josu; Márquez Villodre, Luís (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Multiple approaches to grab comparable data from the Web have been developed up to date. Nevertheless, coming out with a high-quality comparable corpus of a specific topic is not straightforward. We present a model ...
    • Stabilized finite element formulation for the mixed convected wave equation in domains with driven flexible boundaries 

      Guasch Fortuny, Oriol; Arnela, Marc; Codina, Ramon; Espinoza Román, Héctor Gabriel (2015)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A stabilized finite element (FEM) formulation for the wave equation in mixed form with convection is presented, which permits using the same interpolation fields for the acoustic pressure and the acoustic particle velocity. ...
