  • Modelling and simulation of the effect of blast loading on structures using an adaptive blending of discrete and finite element methods 

    Labra, C.; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco; Rojek, Jerzy (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a new computational model for predicting the effect of blast loading on structures. The model is based in the adaptive coupling of the finite element method (FEM) and the discrete element method (DEM) for the ...
  • Modeling of surface wear by the particle finite element method: application to tunneling processes 

    Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Suárez Arroyo, Benjamín; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work introduces the advances in the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) for the modeling of contact and wear between solid materials. The PFEM is an original conjunction of solution strategies. The method has its ...
  • Jørn Utzon: plataformas y recintos en Højstrup 

    Ferrer Forés, Jaime Jose (2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    Este artículo analiza el proyecto del arquitecto danés Jørn Utzon (1918-2008) para la construcción de la Escuela de la Unión de trabajadores daneses en Højstrup, Helsingør (1958-1962), desde las dos propuestas presentadas ...
  • Comportament mecànic i resistent de la fàbrica de pedra: experimentació i modelització 

    Roca Fabregat, Pedro (Patrimoni 2.0 Edicions, 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Aquest article té per finalitat presentar una breu panoràmica sobre les estratègies i tècniques disponibles per a la determinació d’algunes propietats mecàniques fonamentals de la fàbrica de pedra. De manera prèvia a la ...
  • Edge dislocations as sinks for sub-nanometric radiation induced defects in a-iron 

    Anento Moreno, Napoleón; Malerba, L.; Serra Tort, Ana María (Elsevier, 2018-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The role of edge dislocations as sinks for small radiation induced defects in bcc-Fe is investigated by means of atomistic computer simulation. In this work we investigate by Molecular Statics (T = 0K) the interaction ...
  • 5G transport network blueprint and dimensioning for a dense urban scenario 

    Seyfettin Demirkol, Ilker; Camps Mur, Daniel; Bartelt, Jens; Zou, Jim (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we provide a quantitative evaluation of the deployment aspects and dimensioning of the 5G transport architecture in a representative European city. In particular, we select an example dense urban city scenario ...
  • Capacity self-planning in small cell multi-tenant 5G networks 

    Muñoz, Pablo; Sallent Roig, José Oriol; Pérez Romero, Jordi (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Multi-tenancy allows diverse agents sharing the infrastructure in the 5th generation of mobile networks. Such a feature calls for more automated and faster planning procedures in order to adapt the network capacity to the ...
  • Variational Multiscale error estimators for solid mechanics adaptive simulations: an Orthogonal Subgrid Scale approach 

    Baiges Aznar, Joan; Codina, Ramon (2017-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work we present a general error estimator for the finite element solution of solid mechanics problems based on the Variational Multiscale method. The main idea is to consider a rich model for the subgrid scales as ...
  • Physics-based Motion Planning with Temporal Logic Specifications 

    Ud Din, Muhayy; Akbari, Aliakbar; Rosell Gratacòs, Jan (2017-07-01)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    One of the main foci of robotics is nowadays centered in providing a great degree of autonomy to robots. A fundamental step in this direction is to give them the ability to plan in discrete and continuous spaces to find ...
  • On the robustness to corrosion in the life cycle assessment of an existing reinforced concrete bridge 

    Cavaco, E. S.; Neves, Luís A.C; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (Taylor & Francis, 2018-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Management of existing structures has traditionally been based on condition assessment, based on visual inspections, disregarding the susceptibility of different structural types to aging and deterioration. Robustness, as ...
