  • Numerical continuation in classical mechanics and thermodynamics 

    Gimenez, Aleix; chausse, victor; Meseguer Serrano, Álvaro (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, modern numerical continuation methodologies are presented as a way of understanding and computing multiplicity of solutions in undergraduate physics problems. Mechanical and thermodynamical problems are used ...

    Ferreira Junior, Antinio Carlos; Simoes do Carmo, Maristela; Jorge Sánchez, Juan (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Objetivamos construir máscaras de vegetação e não-vegetação sobre a evolução da cobertura vegetal no território Pontal do Paranapanema entre 2003 e 2013, com a utilização de imagens geradas pelo Thematic Mapper (TM) do ...
  • Onshore sandbar migration in the surf zone: new insights into the wave-induced sediment transport mechanisms 

    Fernández Mora, María de los Ángeles; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Falqués Serra, Albert; de Swart, Huib E. (2015-04-28)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a novel process-based morphodynamic model, which includes transport processes due to both velocity and acceleration skewness and a new formulation for intrawave motions, that successfully simulates observations ...
  • Growth and physical properties of highly oriented La-doped (K,Na)NbO3 ferroelectric thin films 

    Vendrell Villafruella, Xavier; Raymond, Oscar; Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; García García, José Eduardo; Mestres, Lourdes (2015-02-27)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Lead-free (K,Na)NbO3 (KNN) and La doped (K,Na)NbO3 (KNN-La) thin films are grown on SrTiO3 substrates using the chemical solution deposition method. The effect of adding different amounts of Na and K excess (0-20 mol%) is ...
  • Effects of gravity level on bubble formation and rise in low-viscosity liquids 

    Suñol Galofre, Francesc Xavier; González Cinca, Ricardo (2015-05-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present an experimental analysis of the effects of gravity level on the formation and rise dynamics of bubbles. Experiments were carried out with millimeter-diameter bubbles in the hypergravity environment provided by ...
  • Mixing efficiency across Rayleigh-Taylor and Richtmeyer-Meshkov fronts 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Lopez Gonzalez-Nieto, Pilar; Cano Marchante, Jose Leandro; Andrés Garzón, Germán (World Scientific Publishing, 2015-06-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Mixing generated by gravitational acceleration and the role of local turbulence measured through multifractal methods is examined in numerical experiments of Rayleigh-Taylor and Richtmyer-Meshkov driven front occurring ...
  • An experimental-computer modeling study of inorganic phosphates surface adsorption on hydroxyapatite particles 

    Rivas Cañas, Manuel; Casanovas Salas, Jordi; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Bertran Cànovas, Òscar; Revilla López, Guillermo; Turon Dols, Pau; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The adsorption of orthophosphate, pyrophosphate, triphosphate and a trisphosphonate onto hydroxyapatite has been examined using experiments and quantum mechanical calculations. Adsorption studies with FTIR and X-ray ...
  • External temperature effects on the hysteresis of NiTi wires in dampers for stay-cables 

    Torra Ferré, Vicenç; Carreras, Guillem; Casciati, Sara; Auguet Sangrá, Carlota E. (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The use of NiTi wires, one of the Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) materials that permits efficient damping in stayed cables for bridges, requires an appropriate behavior when exposed to the external temperature effects. The ...
  • Dynamics of axially localized states in Taylor-Couette flows 

    López Alonso, José Manuel; Marqués Truyol, Francisco (2015-05-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present numerical simulations of the flow confined in a wide gap Taylor-Couette system, with a rotating inner cylinder and variable length-to-gap aspect ratio. A complex experimental bifurcation scenario differing from ...
  • Dynamics of shoreface-connected and inactive sand ridges on a shelf, Part 2: The role of sea level rise and associated changes in shelf geometry 

    Nnafie, Abdel; de Swart, Huib E.; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Garnier, Roland Charles (2015-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Many inner continental shelves are characterized by the presence of large rhythmic bedforms, such as shoreface-connected ridges and the more offshore located sand ridges, which have heights of several meters and are spaced ...
