  • Wall-to-fluid heat transfer in a catalytic reactor at supercritical conditions 

    Mekala, Samuel Jedidiah; Guardo Zabaleta, Alfredo de Jesús; Larrayoz Iriarte, Maria Angeles (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies can be used for improving the understanding of fluid flow and heat transfer in packed bed systems. The objective of this work was to study the heat effects in packed bed reactor ...
  • Active flow control on laminar flow over a backward facing step 

    Mushyam, Aditya; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2015-09-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the present study, two dimensional flow over a backward-facing step in laminar flow regime with application of active flow control (AFC) technique is analysed. The aim of the present work is to gauge the effectiveness ...
  • Piezoelectric energy harvesting system for volcanic seismic acquisition equipment 

    Carreras Pons, Normandino; Toma, Daniel; Gomáriz Castro, Spartacus; Carbonell Ventura, Montserrat; Vidal Morató, Jordi; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    –In this paper it is presented a volcanic seismic acquisition equipment that has been developed together with an energy harvesting system, based on piezoelectric elements, in order to work in autonomous conditions. ...
  • 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
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    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 ...
