  • Microstructural effects of strain aging on NiTi pseudoelastic wires by synchrotron X-ray micro-diffraction 

    Isalgue Buxeda, Antonio; Auguet Sangrá, Carlota E.; Concustell, Amadeu; Cinca Luis, Nuria (2015)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this work, we explore the consequences of strain aging NiTi wires (2.46 mm diameter) at moderate temperatures (100ºC). The changes of the stress-strain behaviour on aged, as compared with non-aged wires, with comparatively ...
  • Urban canopy shading: opportunities to reduce cooling requirements

    As a result of the current economic and energy crisis, it has become necessary to rethink urban planning, starting from a global concept of efficiency and considering buildings not as isolated entities, but as part of ...
  • Characterization of solar access in mediterranean cities: oriented sky factor 

    García Nevado, Elena; Pagès Ramon, Anna; Coch Roura, Helena; Beckers, Benoit (Building Green Futures, 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The link between city morphology and urban energy consumption, although proved, requires further research. In that sense, the analysis of parameters describing the urban texture may be a useful approach for energy assessment ...
  • Shop window lighting: the use of sun to improve the visual appeal and reduce energy demand 

    Anagnou, Eleni; Coch Roura, Helena; Crespo Cabillo, Isabel (CEPT University Press, 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The present study deals with the potential reduction of energy consumption for the lighting of shop window displays, which is a highly energy-consuming sector. Light has the power of attracting people´s attention, which ...
  • Urban morphology and energy performance: the direct and indirect contribution in mediterranean climate 

    Salvati, Agnese; Coch Roura, Helena; Cecere, Carlo (Building Green Futures, 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The combined effects of urban heat island (UHI), urban population growth and energy overexploitation are undermining the safety of urban areas. Urban morphology plays a prominent role in this context, because it affects ...
