  • Study of the bed velocity induced by twin propellers 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Cabrera Crespo, Alejandro Jacobo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2017-09)
    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 

    Lin Ye, Jue; García León, Manuel; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Ortego Martínez, María Isabel; Lionello, Piero; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2017-04)
    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 

    Campos Hortigüela, Alexis; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Trubat Casal, Pau (2016-06)
    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 ...
  • Nera-bed hydrodynamics and turbulence below a large-scale plunging breaking wave over a mobile barred bed profile 

    Van der Zanden, Joep; van der A, Dominic; Hurther, David; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; O'Donoghue, Tom; Ribberink, Jan (Wiley, 2016-08-03)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Detailed measurements are presented of velocities and turbulence under a large-scale regular plunging breaking wave in a wave flume. Measurements were obtained at 12 cross-shore locations around a mobile medium-sand breaker ...
  • Morphological changes, beach inundation and overwash caused by an extreme storm on a low-lying embayed beach bounded by a dune system (NW Mediterranean) 

    Duran, Ruth; Guillén Aranda, Jorge; Ruiz García, Antonio; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Sagrista, Enric (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The geomorphological evolution of a low-lying, micro-tidal sandy beach in the western Mediterranean, Pals beach, was characterized using airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data. Data were collected in prior to ...
  • Impact of climate change on wave energy resource: the case of Menorca (Spain) 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casas Prat, Mercè; Campins, E (2017-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The aim of this paper was to analyse how changes in wave patterns, due to the effect of climate change, can affect wave energy power and yield around Menorca (NW Mediterranean Sea). The present and future wave energy ...
  • Management of estuarine beaches on the Amazon coast though the application of recreational carrying capacity indices 

    de Sousa, Rosigleyse C.; Pereira, Luci Cajueiro Carneiro; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2017-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The purpose of this paper is to determine the Recreational Carrying Capacity of three estuarine beaches (Colares, Marudá and Murubira) on the Amazon coast of Brazil, based on the combined assessment of natural conditions ...
  • Impacts of sea-level rise-induced erosion on the Catalan coast 

    Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia; Bosom García, Eva; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Nicholls, Robert J. (2017-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The Catalan coast as most of the developed Mediterranean coastal zone is characterized by the coincidence of stresses and pressures on the natural system with a high exposure and low adaptive capacity. Due to this, climate ...
  • Modeling circulation patterns induced by spatial cross-shore wind variability in a small-size coastal embayment 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2016-08)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This contribution shows the importance of the cross-shore spatial wind variability in the water circulation in a small-sized micro-tidal bay. The hydrodynamic wind response at Alfacs Bay (Ebro River delta, NW Mediterranean ...
