El LIM/UPC (Dept. Enginyeria Civil i Ambiental de l'ETSECCPB) està format per investigadors altament qualificats i de disciplines tecnicocientífiques diverses. Les línies de treball són: hidrodinàmica costanera i estuariana, clima i qualitat del medi ambient marí, física i enginyeria oceanogràfiques, enginyeria i morfologia costanera, enginyeria portuària, i gestió de la zona costanera i els recursos costaners.
El LIM/UPC ha desenvolupat un avançat conjunt de models numèrics i disposa d’una infraestructura de laboratori i camp per al vessant experimental dels projectes desenvolupats (destaca el canal d’onatge ICTS-CIEM, tercer en importància a la UE).

The Maritime Engineering Laboratory (LIM/UPC) of the Technical University of Catalonia has long-standing experience in the field of maritime engineering. It is a unit of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of Barcelona. The LIM/UPC is made up of a team of highly qualified professionals who have solid experience and come from different technical and scientific disciplines (mathematics, physics, geology, civil engineering, oceanography, etc.), who are organised into specialised workgroups that are well-coordinated among themselves. This enables a naturally multidisciplinary approach to the services offered. The basic aims are to undertake basic and applied research, to develop oceanographic and maritime technology, to draw up training programmes for different levels and to organise dissemination activities in the maritime and coastal engineering fields. The main research lines are coastal and estuarine hydrodynamics, maritime environment climate

  • Quantification of the tidal stream exergy in the ría de Vigo (NW Spain) 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Griño Colom, Maria; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Mösso Aranda, César (2017)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The exergy of the tidal currents in the ría de Vigo area (NW Spain) is quantified using the results of a 28-day long simulation of the tidal flows. The results show that the northernmost strait connecting the ría with the ...
  • Assessment of green measures as coastal defences using numerical models

    Article
    Accés obert
    Twin propellers without a rudder were studied using a physical model with a fixed clearance distance and three different rotating velocities. Experimental results were compared with results from theoretical expressions ...
  • Multivariate statistical modelling of future marine storms

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Extreme events, such as wave-storms, need to be characterized for coastal infrastructure design purposes. Such description should contain information on both the univariate behaviour and the joint-dependence of storm-variables. ...
  • Comparison between nested grids and unstructured grids for a high-resolution wave forecasting system in the western Mediterranean sea 

    Pallarès López, Elena; López Marco, Jaime; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2017-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Traditionally wave modelling uses a downscaling process by means of successive nested grids to obtain high-resolution wave fields near the coast. This supposes an uncertain error due to internal boundary conditions and a ...
  • Spar concrete monolithic design for offshore wind turbines

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Significant research efforts are now being directed at floating offshore wind turbines. The main challenge posed by floating wind turbines is the high construction and installation costs of the substructure, which make it ...
