El LIM/UPC (Dept. E.H.M.A. de la 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 Hydraulic, Maritime 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

  • Analysis of current intensification in the NorthWest Mediterranean Shelf 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Flow intensification episodes lasting more than 12 h are observed occasionally at different locations along the Northwestern Mediterranean coast. In the last years, these pulses have hindered ship operations outside the ...
  • Operational forecasting as a tool for managing pollutant dispersion and recovery 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; González Marco, Daniel; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique; García Sotillo, Marcos; Capella, Salvador; Mora, Javier; Llinás, Octavio; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo (2016)
    Conference lecture

    The fate and concentration of plastic pollutants in coastal seas depends on meteo-oceanographic factors and the multiple entry points in the domain. This will in turn control the implications for water quality, transmission ...
  • Planform and mobility in the Meaípe-Maimbá embayed beach on the South East coast of Brazil 

    Albino, Jacqueline; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Oliveira, Tiago C.A. (2016-01)
    Article
