  • Influence of the controller design on the accuracy of a forward dynamic simulation of human gait 

    Pàmies Vila, Rosa; Pätkau, Olga; Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Font Llagunes, Josep Maria (2017-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The analysis of a captured motion can be addressed by means of forward or inverse dynamics approaches. For this purpose, a 12 segment 2D model with 14 degrees of freedom is developed and both methods are implemented using ...
  • An energy flow study of a double-deck tunnel under quasi-static and harmonic excitations 

    Clot Razquin, Arnau; Romeu Garbí, Jordi; Arcos Villamarín, Robert (2016-10)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents a comparison between the vibration energy flow radiated by a double-deck tunnel and the one radiated by a simple tunnel when both are excited by constant or by harmonic moving loads. For both cases, the ...
  • Assessment of environmental noise and its effect on neonates in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit 

    Romeu Garbí, Jordi; Cotrina, Laura; Perapoch, Josep; Linés, Marcos (2016-10-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    A method for analyzing the influence of noise on newborns is proposed. The method consists of defining three different types of time interval (quiet, noisy and nursing) and, for each period, environmental noise levels, ...
  • The use of rapid prototyping techniques (RPT) to manufacture micro channels suitable for high operation pressures and uPIV 

    Farré Lladós, Josep; Casals Terré, Jasmina; Voltas Aguilar, Jordi; G. Westerberg, Lars (2016)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper aims to present a new methodology to manufacture micro-channels suitable for high operating pressures and micro particle image velocimetry (µPIV) measurements using a rapid-prototyping high-resolution 3D printer. ...
  • Electric power generation from combustion in porous media 

    Bubnovich Ivanovice, Valeri; Pedro San Martin, Pedro; Henriquez Vargas, Luis; Orlovskaya, Nina; González Rojas, Hernan Alberto (2016-09-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Combustion of lean air/fuel mixtures in an inert porous medium provides an efficient way to convert chemical energy of hydrocarbons into thermal energy. The porous medium effectively redistributes the heat allowing the ...
  • An empirical methodology for prediction of shape and flow rate of a free-falling non-submerged liquid and casting iron stream 

    Gámez Montero, Pedro Javier; Castilla López, Roberto; Freire Venegas, Francisco Javier; Khamashta Llorens, Maria; Codina Macià, Esteban (2016-09-19)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The work presented in this article demonstrates the use of an empirical and simplified approach based on an optical technique and a home-made ad hoc code that give knowledge of the shape and falling velocity of a free-falling ...
  • Injury pattern in lethal motorbikes-pedestrian collisions, in the area of Barcelona, Spain 

    Rebollo-Soria, M. Carmen; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos; Sánchez Molina, David; Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; Galtés Vicente, Ignasi (2016-08-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Introduction: There are several studies about M1 type vehicle-pedestrian collision injury pattern, and based on them, there has been several changes in automobiles for pedestrian protection. However, the lack of sufficient ...
  • Intra-rater reliability and diagnostic accuracy of a new vaginal dynamometer to measure pelvic floor muscle strength in women with urinary incontinence 

    Romero-Culleres, G.; Peña Pitarch, Esteve; Jane Feixas, C.; Arnau Bartes, Ana; Montesinos Muñoz, Jesús; Abenoza Guardiola, Montserrat (2015-11-20)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The first choice treatment in urinary incontinence (UI) is rehabilitation of the pelvic floor in order to improve muscle strength. However, no entirely reliable instruments for quantifying pelvic floor muscle (PFM) strength ...
  • Driving device for a hand movement without external force 

    Peña Pitarch, Esteve; Ticó Falguera, Neus; López Martínez, Joan Antoni; Al Omar Mesnaoui, Anas; Alcelay Larrión, José Ignacio (2016-11)
    Article

    People with disabilities have limitations in activities of daily life such as grasping a glass of water or moving an object. Orthotic products that improve or restore the functionality of the musculoskeletal system of a ...
  • Influence of eccentricity on roughness distributions in side milling 

    Buj Corral, Irene; Vivancos Calvet, Joan; González Rojas, Hernan Alberto (2016-06-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this paper, a numerical model was used based on the tool-piece geometric intersection, which enables the determination of a roughness profile as a function of feed, tool radii and tool eccentricity in side milling ...
