    Vegetal materials were one of the first construction materials used by humans, but the development of petrol-based synthetic materials in the last century replaced them in mainstream construction techniques. However, since ...
  • DA white dwarfs from the LSS-GAC survey DR1: the preliminary luminosity and mass functions and formation rate 

    Rebassa Mansergas, Alberto; Cojocaru, Elena Ruxandra; Torres, S.; García-Berro Montilla, Enrique; Liu, X.; Yuan, H-B.; Xiang, M.-X.; Huang, Y.; Koester, D.; Hou, Y.; Li, G.; Zhang, Y. (2015-06-11)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Modern large-scale surveys have allowed the identification of large numbers of white dwarfs. However, these surveys are subject to complicated target selection algorithms, which make it almost impossible to quantify to ...
  • Aftershock sequences of three seismic crises at southern California, USA, simulated by a cellular automata model based on self-organized criticality

    Observations of lifted temperature minimum (LTM) profiles in the nocturnal boundary layer were first reported in 1932. It was defined by the existence of a temperature minimum some centimetres above the ground. During the ...
  • Turbulence vertical structure of the boundary layer during the afternoon transition 

    Darbieu, Clara; Lohou, Fabienne; Lothon, Marie; Vilà Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Couvreux, Fleur; Durand, Pierre; Pino González, David; Patton, Edward; Nilsson, Erik; Blay-Carreras, Estel; Gioli, Beniamino (2015-09-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We investigate the decay of planetary boundary layer (PBL) turbulence in the afternoon, from the time the surface buoyancy flux starts to decrease until sunset. Dense observations of mean and turbulent parameters ...
  • Experimental study of heat transport in fractured network 

    Pastore, Nicola; Cherubini, claudia; Gassi, C.I.; Allegretti, N.M.; Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Tarquis Alfonso, Ana Maria (2015-07-01)
    Article

    Fractured rocks play an important role in transport of natural resources through subsurface systems. In recent years, interest has grown in investigating heat transport by means of tracer tests, driven by the important ...
  • Continuation of bifurcations of periodic orbits for large-scale systems 

    Net Marcé, Marta; Sánchez Umbría, Juan (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    A methodology to track bifurcations of periodic orbits in large-scale dissipative systems depending on two parameters is presented. It is based on the application of iterative Newton-Krylov techniques to extended systems. ...
