  • Preliminary study on fluidic actuators. Design modifications 

    Campo Sud, David del; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria; Campo Gatell, Vanessa del (2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    As fluidic actuators have the advantage of lacking moving parts, their use in real applications brings high reliability. This is why, once having overcome their drawbacks, which means being able to provide the appropriate ...
  • Influence of the added mass effect and boundary conditions on the dynamic response of submerged and confined structures 

    Valentín Ruiz, David; Presas Batlló, Alexandre; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Valero Ferrando, M.del Carmen (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The dynamic response of submerged and confined disk-like structures is of interest in the flied of hydraulic machinery, especially in hydraulic turbine runners. This response is difficult to be estimated with accuracy due ...

    At present, new renewables like wind, solar and marine energy are having a strong development. The generation of energy by renewables has the disadvantage that it depends on atmospheric conditions. It means that they ...
  • Experimental analysis of the dynamic behavior of a rotating disk submerged in water 

    Presas Batlló, Alexandre; Valentín Ruiz, David; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Valero Ferrando, M.del Carmen; Seidel, Ulrich (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    To study the dynamic behavior of turbine runners (natural frequencies and mode shapes) not only the added mass effect of still water has to be considered. Also the effect of rotation may not be neglected in the dynamic ...
  • Proyecto vibro-impact: modelo predictivo del impacto por vibraciones ocasionadas por trabajos de obra pública sobre edificaciones circundantes 

    Cardona, Joan; Clot Razquin, Arnau; Arcos Villamarín, Robert; Torres del Castillo, Rafael (Sociedad Española de Acústica (SEA), 2014)
    Conference report

    VIBRO-IMPACT is an investigation project co-funded by the Spanish Centre for Industrial Technological Development, CDTI, which aim is to develop a model for the prediction of the vibration induced in near buildings due to ...
  • Sediment and plankton lift off recirculations in strong synthetic turbulence (KS) 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Castilla López, Roberto; Sekula, Emil; Furmanek, Petr (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The study of particle diffusion and of turbulent sedimentation is of great importance in many geophysical fields, such as in Environmental Science or Oceanography as well as in Bio-environmental and industrial processes. ...
  • The role of vorticity in maximal swimming propulsion 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Arellano, Raul; Carrillo Cortés, José Alejandro; Terrés Nicoli, José María (Institute of Thermomechanics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Experimental and theoretical results on the propulsion of swimrners are presented with an emphasis on the specific characteristics of the wakes produced by the swimmers in the water. We introduce the subject revising ...
  • Boundary layer effects on the vortex shedding in a Donaldsontype hydrofoil 

    Fontanals García, Alfred; Guardo Zabaleta, Alfredo de Jesús; Zobeiri, Amirreza; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Farhat, Mohamed; Avellan, François (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Fluid - Structure Interaction (FSI) phenomena is becoming a relevant study field for the design or revamping of hydropower plants. The generalized trend of increasing flow rates and reducing rotor blades/stay vanes thickness ...
