  • Bridge condition and safety based on measured vibration level 

    Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Rodrigues, J. Fernando (International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineers (IABSE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Along the years, there were efforts by researchers in quantifying structural performance and damage in function of vibration measurements. Curves proposed by several authors try to relate acceleration spectrum to damage ...
  • Integrated value model for sustainable assessment of school centers construction 

    Pons Valladares, Oriol; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Hundreds of new school centers were built in Catalonia between 2000 and 2009. It was a governmental decision in order to solve an endemic lack of centers that in the early 2000s had worsen. Masonry and poured on site ...
  • Experimental study on ferritic stainless steel decks in constructions stage according to Eurocode-3 

    Real Saladrigas, Esther; Arrayago Luquin, Itsaso; Marimón Carvajal, Federico; Ferrer Ballester, Miquel (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The aesthetic appeal and thermal capacity of ferritic stainless steels, together with the combination of good mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance, makes them ideal for exposed composite slabs using ...
  • Simulation of in-plane shear test on masonry walls using micro modeling tecniques 

    Drougkas, Anastasios; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Molins i Borrell, Climent (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A series of experimental tests involving in-plane shear loading of masonry walls is numerically simulated using finite element detailed micro models. The experimental tests were performed on masonry walls composed of solid ...
  • On the robustness to damage in the Life-Cyle Assessment (LCA) of deteriorating bridges 

    Cavaco, E. S.; Neves, L. A. C.; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (CRC Press Taylor & Francis Group, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, the susceptibility of reinforced concrete structures to corrosion using a robustnessbased framework is presented. Robustness is regarded as a structural property related with the tolerance to damage and it ...
  • Modelling of bucking failure of load bearing walls 

    Sandoval Mandujano, Cristian Eliseo; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Adam, José M.; Garzón-Roca, J. (Universidade do Minho, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An experimental and numerical research on the characterization of the capacity of load bearing brick masonry walls taking into consideration the non-linear geometric effects and the buckling failure is presented. Experimental ...
  • Design optimization for a truncated catenary mooring system for scale model tests 

    Molins i Borrell, Climent; Trubat Casal, Pau; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Campos Hortigüela, Alexis (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    One of the main aspects when testing floating offshore platforms is the scaled mooring system, particularly with the increased depths where such platforms are intended. When the existing testing facilities do not have ...
  • Investigation of the masonry pillars of a modernist building of Hospital de sant Pau, Barcelona 

    Drougkas, Anastasios; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Alegre Heitzmann, Vicente (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The methodology employed and the results obtained from an experimental campaign to determine the compressive strength of a masonry pillar extracted from an early 20th century building are presented. The samples of the ...
  • Masonry material characterization methodology for micro-modeling 

    Drougkas, Anastasios; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Alegre Heitzmann, Vicente (Universidade do Minho, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Numerical and analytical micro-modeling of masonry structures requires knowledge of several elasticity and strength parameters of the constituent materials of the composite. Furthermore, when dealing with specimens produced ...
