    This document presents the impacts of future climatic conditions as a function of coastal typology. The impact assessment is carried out at decadal and storm scales showing how such a combination produces the worst levels ...
  • Experimental RAO’s analysis of a monolithic concrete spar structure for offshore floating wind turbines 

    Campos Hortigüela, Alexis; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Trubat Casal, Pau; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel (2015)
    Conference report

    Nowadays the offshore wind energy market is clearly oriented to be extended around the world. Bottom fixed solutions for supporting offshore wind turbines are useful in shallow waters which are available in ...
  • Experiments on a scale model of a monolithic concrete spar for floating wind turbines 

    Campos Hortigüela, Alexis; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Trubat Casal, Pau; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Preliminary studies of a concept consisting of a monolithic concrete SPAR platform were presented in 2014. The studies were performed in the framework of the AFOSP KIC-InnoEnergy project (Alternative Floating Platform ...
  • Erosive and accretive mobile bed experiments in large scale tests 

    Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Traditionally data and analysis for erosive or Accretive wave conditions have been carried out at relatively small scales and without enough spatial coverage or resolution. This limits the in depth analysis and does not ...
  • Natural accretion mechanisms: the role in future coastal sustainability 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; García León, Manuel; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    Conference report

    Although recent research has focused on erosive processes, natural accretion mechanisms have been known for many years, and they can provide an efficient solution to deal with sediment starved coasts. In this paper we shall ...
  • Modelling barrier beaches under storms with XBEACH: The case of the Trabucador bar 

    García León, Manuel; Solé, J.M.; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Alomar, Marta; Tolosana Delgado, Raimon; Fernández, J.; Pallarès López, Elena; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2011)

    Entre los componentes del drenaje urbano superficial se encuentran los tejados. El flujo de la lluvia que cae sobre estos, puede ser descargado a las calles, colectores, o en ambos. En este trabajo se presenta un modelo ...
  • Testing water pollution in a two layer aquifer 

    García León, Manuel; Lin Ye, Jue (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Water bodies around urban areas may be polluted with chemical elements from urban or industrial activities. We study the case of underground water pollution. This is a serious problem, since under- ground water is high ...
  • Experimental studies on 3D impulse waves generated by rapid landslides and debris flows 

    Bregoli, Francesco; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Gómez Cortés, Diego (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The input of material in a water body at high velocity, like a landslide or a debris flow, can induce a big, abnormal wave, known as impulse wave or landslide tsunami wave. Once the wave is triggered, the effects on the ...
  • Effect of a termal pre-treatment and the temperature range on anaerobic digestion of water hyacinth (Eichornia Crassipes) 

    Ferrer Martí, Ivet; Campos Pozuelo, Elena; Palatsi Civit, Jordi; Porras, Silvia; Flotats Ripoll, Xavier (2004)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Water Hyacinth (WH -Eichornia Crassipes) causes environmental problems in tropical areas, such as water eutrophication. A possible solution is to collect the plant and to use it for biogas production, trying to valorise ...
