  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nanozonation in dense cities : testing a combined methodology in Barcelona City (Spain) 

    Salinas Naval, Víctor; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega; Santos Assunçao, Sonia; Clapes Boixader, Jaime; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; González Drigo, José Ramón; Canas Torres, José Antonio; Martínez Sánchez, Joan (2014-01-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Microzonation is widely used in seismic risk evaluations to define the predominant period values, which are usually associated with extended areas of a few hundred meters. However, the representative values corresponding ...
  • Assessing the energetic and environmental impacts of the operation and maintenance of Spanish sewer networks from a life-cycle perspective 

    Petit Boix, Anna; Sanjuan Demás, David; Chenel, Sergio; Marin, Desiree; Gasol, Carlos M.; Farreny, Ramon; Villalba Mendez, Gara; Suárez Ojeda, María Eugenia; Gabarrell Durany, Xavier; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro; Rieradevall Pons, Joan (2015-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    The environmental impacts resulting from sewer networks are best analysed from a life-cycle perspective to integrate the energy requirements into the infrastructure design. The energy requirements for pumping wastewater ...
  • Probabilistic seismic damage assessment of RC buildings based on nonlinear dynamic analysis 

    Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro; Hurtado Gómez, Jorge Eduardo (2015-06-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The incremental dynamic analysis is a powerful tool for evaluating the seismic vulnerability and risk of buildings. It allows calculating the global damage of structures for different PGAs and representing this result by ...

    The preservation of old downtowns has become a necessity of growing interest. New urban policies have been approved in different countries in order to revive the old city centers and make them economically sustainable. In ...
  • Parametric model for capacity curves 

    Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Vargas Alzate, Yeudy Felipe; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro; González Drigo, José Ramón (2015-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A parametric model for capacity curves and capacity spectra is proposed. The capacity curve is considered to be composed of a linear part and a nonlinear part. The normalized nonlinear part is modelled bymeans of a cumulative ...
