  • Experimental studies on 3D impulse waves generated by rapid landslides and debris flows 

    Bregoli, Francesco; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Gómez Cortés, Diego (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The input of material in a water body at high velocity, like a landslide or a debris flow, can induce a big, abnormal wave, known as impulse wave or landslide tsunami wave. Once the wave is triggered, the effects on the ...
  • Desarrollo de herramientas para la evaluación preliminar de la peligrosidad de corrientes detríticas 

    Bregoli, Francesco; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel (2010)
    Conference report

    Con el objetivo de proporcionar recomendaciones para la alerta temprana de fenómenos potencialmente desencadenantes de corrientes detríticas (“Debris Flow”), uno de los temas principales es la identificación preliminar de ...
  • High-speed debris-flows generating 2D impulse waves: Experimental analysis 

    Bregoli, Francesco; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    When a landslide or a debris-flow falls in a water body, a big wave, known as impulse wave or landslide tsunami wave, can be generated. That phenomenon can be highly destructive and unlikely predicted, involving dams and ...
  • Setup of an experimental device for high-speed debris flows generating 2D impulse waves 

    Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Bregoli, Francesco; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Rast, Manuel; Bentz, Clara (2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Landslides and debris flows falling into reservoirs, natural lakes, fjords or seas can generate impulse waves, which can be assimilated to tsunami-water waves. Such wave’s behavior can be highly destructive regarding dams ...
  • Simulación numérica del flujo de un tramo fluvial con una turbina de paso situada en su lecho y los efectos en el comportamiento de su lámina libre 

    Oller Aramayo, Sergio A.; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Nallim, Liz; Oller Martínez, Sergio Horacio (Asociación Argentina de Mecánica Computacional, 2012)
    Conference report

    Las turbinas de paso o WCT (Water Current Turbines) abren nuevas y mayores posibilidades, con grandes ventajas en cuanto al aprovechamiento hidroeléctrico. Éstas evitan las construcciones de costosas presas y reducen ...
  • Flow structure and resistance in flexible vegetated channels 

    Velasco Montes, David; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel (2010)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The present paper helps to understand the behaviour of the flow through plants, as a first approximation to the environmental interactions happening in natural rivers.
  • Numerical analysis of MHD-thermofluid flows considering sandwich structures as applied to liquid breeding blankets for fusion technology 

    Mas de les Valls Ortiz, Elisabet; Batet Miracle, Lluís; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Fradera, Jordi; Sedano, L.A. (2011)
    Conference report

    Lead lithium flowing inside breeding blanket’s channels in a fusion reactor is subject to a Hartmann number of 104 and a Grashof number 109􀀀12. Since under such conditions buoyancy can be of the same order of magnitude ...
  • Development of preliminary assessment tools to evaluate debris flow risks 

    Bregoli, Francesco; Ciervo, F.; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel; Chevalier, Guillaume Gerard; Papa, M. (Centro Internacional de Métodos Numéricos en Ingeniería (CIMNE), 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the framework of the IMPRINTS European Research Project (FP7), a toolbox for fast assessment of debris flow hazard has been developed. The aim of this toolbox is to implement different existing models inside a common ...
