    This document presents the impacts of future climatic conditions as a function of coastal typology. The impact assessment is carried out at decadal and storm scales showing how such a combination produces the worst levels ...
  • Experimental RAO’s analysis of a monolithic concrete spar structure for offshore floating wind turbines 

    Campos Hortigüela, Alexis; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Trubat Casal, Pau; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel (2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Nowadays the offshore wind energy market is clearly oriented to be extended around the world. Bottom fixed solutions for supporting offshore wind turbines are useful in shallow waters which are available in ...
  • Experiments on a scale model of a monolithic concrete spar for floating wind turbines 

    Campos Hortigüela, Alexis; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Trubat Casal, Pau; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Preliminary studies of a concept consisting of a monolithic concrete SPAR platform were presented in 2014. The studies were performed in the framework of the AFOSP KIC-InnoEnergy project (Alternative Floating Platform ...
  • Erosive and accretive mobile bed experiments in large scale tests 

    Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Traditionally data and analysis for erosive or Accretive wave conditions have been carried out at relatively small scales and without enough spatial coverage or resolution. This limits the in depth analysis and does not ...
  • Natural accretion mechanisms: the role in future coastal sustainability 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; García León, Manuel; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    Conference report

    Although recent research has focused on erosive processes, natural accretion mechanisms have been known for many years, and they can provide an efficient solution to deal with sediment starved coasts. In this paper we shall ...
  • Modelling barrier beaches under storms with XBEACH: The case of the Trabucador bar 

    García León, Manuel; Solé, J.M.; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Alomar, Marta; Tolosana Delgado, Raimon; Fernández, J.; Pallarès López, Elena; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2011)

  • Testing water pollution in a two layer aquifer 

    García León, Manuel; Lin Ye, Jue (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Water bodies around urban areas may be polluted with chemical elements from urban or industrial activities. We study the case of underground water pollution. This is a serious problem, since under- ground water is high ...
  • Operational forecast of beach morphodynamics: reliability and prediction limits 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Grifoll Colls, Manel; García León, Manuel; Pallarés, Elena (Coastal Engineering Research Council, 2012)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The paper presents a nested and coupled modelling suite including meteorological, waves, currents and morphodynamics sub-routines. The sequence has been applied to two distinctiv e beaches along the Catalan coast in the ...
  • Reliability analysis of beaches as defenses against storm impacts under a climate change scenario 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gómez Martínez, Marta; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; García León, Manuel (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    An analysis of the probability of failure of beaches along the Catalan coast (Northwestern Mediterranean) is presented. The failure condition is defined when waves are able to overtop the beach and reach the backshore. The ...
  • Sediment transport and dispersal in the nearshore of “flash-flood” rivers 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Guillén Aranda, Jorge; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    River sediment dispersal on the near-shore of “flash-flood” rivers is investigated using a coupled wave-current-sediment transport model. Besòs and Llobregat rivers (short and mountainous rivers in NW Mediterranean Sea, ...
