  • Large-scale rock slope failures in the eastern Pyrenees: identifying a sparse but significant population in paraglacial and parafluvial contexts 

    Jarman, David; Calvet, Marc; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Delmas, Magali; Gunnell, Yanni (2014-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    This first overview of large-scale rock slope failure (RSF) in the Pyrenees addresses the eastern third of the range. Around 30 principal RSFs >0.25 km2 and 20 lesser or uncertain cases have been identified from remote ...
  • Improving the accuracy of risk prediction from particle-based breakthrough curves reconstructed with kernel density estimators 

    Siirila, Erica; Fernández García, Daniel; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier (2015-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    While particle tracking techniques are often used in risk frameworks, the number of particles needed to properly derive risk metrics such as average concentration for a given exposure duration is often unknown. If too few ...
  • Probabilistic human health risk assessment of degradation-related chemical mixtures in heterogeneous aquifers: risk statistics, hot spots, and preferential channels 

    Henri, Christopher Vincent; Fernández García, Daniel; Barros, Felipe de (2015-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The increasing presence of toxic chemicals released in the subsurface has led to a rapid growth of social concerns and the need to develop and employ models that can predict the impact of groundwater contamination on human ...
  • Pile groups under deep expansion: a case history 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Sauter, Simon; Ramon Tarragona, Anna (2015-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    A viaduct in a high speed railway line experienced severe heave of its central pillars as a result of deep expansion of an anhydrite rock. Bridge pillars were founded on pile groups which experienced vertical heave ...
  • Mathematical equivalence between time-dependent single-rate and multirate mass transfer models 

    Fernández García, Daniel; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier (2015-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The often observed tailing of tracer breakthrough curves is caused by a multitude of mass transfer processes taking place over multiple scales. Yet, in some cases, it is convenient to fit a transport model with a single-rate ...

    Book
    Open Access
    En esta monografía de presenta de forma resumida, los conceptos fundamentales relacionados con la acción sísmica, la respuesta estructural de los edificios, la evaluación de la vulnerabilidad, el riesgo y el daño sí­smico. ...
  • Application of particle motion technique to structural modal identification of heritage buildings 

    Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Martínez, Guillermo; Clapes Boixader, Jaime; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    Determining the behavior of a structure estimated by means of finite elements analysis requires not only an in-depth knowledge of its geometry and dynamic properties but also an experimental validation to corroborate the ...
