    The design and evaluation of parachute-payload systems is a technology field in which numerical analysis tools can make very important contributions. This work describes a new development from CIMNE in this area, a coupled ...
  • Stochastic and Robust design procedures applied to the optimization with uncertainties 

    Pons Prats, Jordi; Bugeda Castelltort, Gabriel; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Engineers agree with the fact that uncertainty is an important issue to get a better model of real behavior. Uncertainty quantification techniques have been largely developed during the recent years; Stochastic and ...
  • The Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM): an effective numerical technique for solving coastal engineering problems 

    Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Idelsohn Barg, Sergio Rodolfo (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present some developments in the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) for the solution of complex coupled problems in coastal engineering involving fluid-soil-structure interaction (FSSI) such as the stability of ...
  • Advances in the Discrete Element Method for drilling mechanics problems 

    Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Arrufat Garcia, Ferran; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco; Ubach Fuentes, Pere-Andreu; Gandikota, Varadaraju; Ring, Lev (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present recent developments in the Discrete Element method (DEM) for analysis of drilling mechanics problems typical in the oil and gas industry. A new local DEM constitutive model able to predict the non-linear behavior ...
  • Multi-objective design optimisation of a 3D-rail stamping process using a robust multi-objective optimisation platform (RMOP) 

    Lee, DongSeop; Coma Company, Martí; Espinoza Román, Héctor Gabriel; Fruitós Bickham, Óscar Alejandro; Pons Prats, Jordi (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The paper investigates the multi-objective design optimisation of a stamping process to control the final shape and the final quality using advanced high strength steels. The design problem of the stamping process is ...
  • Finite element computation of diphthong sounds using tuned two-dimensional vocal tracts 

    Arnela, Marc; Guasch Fortuny, Oriol; Codina, Ramon; Espinoza Román, Héctor Gabriel (European Acoustics Association (EEA), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Finite element methods (FEM) are increasingly being used to simulate the acoustics of the vocal tract. For vowel production, the irreducible wave equation for the acoustic pressure is typically solved. However, diphthong ...
  • Comparing a sumulated loss scenario with the observed earthquake damage: the Lorca 2011 case study 

    Salgado Galvez, Mario A.; Carreño Tibaduiza, Martha Liliana; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro; Cardona Arboleda, Omar Dario (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A loss assessment was performed for the buildings of Lorca, Spain, considering an earthquake hazard scenario with similar characteristics to those of a real event which occurred on May 11th 2011, in terms of epicentre, ...
  • Probabilistic earthquake risk assessment of Barcelona using CAPRA 

    Marulanda Fraume, Mabel Cristina; Carreño Tibaduiza, Martha Liliana; Cardona Arboleda, Omar Dario; Ordaz Schroeder, Mario Gustavo; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The seismic risk assessment of Barcelona has been performed using the modules of CAPRA and the corresponding holistic estimation of the seismic risk of this urban area. In addition, according to the physical risk results ...
  • Holistic seismic risk assessment of port of Spain: an integrated evaluation and tool in the framework of CAPRA 

    Carreño Tibaduiza, Martha Liliana; Cardona Arboleda, Omar Dario; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro; Velasquez, Cesar A.; Salgado Galvez, Mario A. (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In recent years disaster risk has been defined, for management purposes, as the potential economic, social and environmental consequences of hazardous events that may occur in a given period of time. However, in many cases, ...
  • Hybrid loss assessment curve for Colombia: a prospective and a retrospective approach 

    Velasquez, Cesar A.; Cardona Arboleda, Omar Dario; Mora Cuevas, Miguel; Yamín Lacouture, Luis Eduardo; Carreño Tibaduiza, Martha Liliana; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Countries prone to seismic hazard need to assess the expected risk as a permanent activity in their financial plan; otherwise, they will experience a lack in the information required for the application of disaster risk ...
