    The ICTA-ICP Rooftop Greenhouse Lab (RTG-Lab) is a research-oriented RTG situated in the UAB Campus (Bellaterra, Barcelona). In contrast to current RTGs, the RTG-Lab integrates energy, water and CO2 flows into the building’s ...
  • Coherent structures in oscillatory flows within the laminar-to-turbulent transition regime for smooth and rough walls 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Christensen, Kenneth T.; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Garcia, Marcelo Horacio (2016-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    We investigate coherent structures present in oscillatory boundary layers over smooth and rough beds for Reynolds numbers between 103 and 104, in the transition to turbulence regime. A two-camera 2D- particle image velocimetry ...
  • Environmental assessment of drinking water transport and distribution network use phase for small to medium-sized municipalities in Spain 

    Sanjuan-Delmás, David; Petit Boix, Anna; Gasol, Carlos M.; Farreny, Ramon; Villalba Mendez, Gara; Suárez-Ojeda, María Eugenia; Gabarrell Durany, Xavier; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro; Rieradevall Pons, Joan (2015-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Previous studies assessing the environmental impacts of drinking water supply networks have considered a bottom-up approach, analysing single case studies. This paper presents a top-down approach for the assessment of the ...
  • A review of potential physical impacts on harbours in the Mediterranean Sea under climate change 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Brown, Sally; Casas-Prat, Mercè; Nicholls, Robert J.; Lionello, Piero; Conte, Dario (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The potential impact of climate change on port operations and infrastructures has received much less attention than the corresponding impact for beach systems. However, ports have always been vulnerable to weather extremes ...
  • Vulnerability of Catalan (NW Mediterranean) ports to wave overtopping due to different scenarios of sea level rise 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casanovas, Ignacio; Mösso Aranda, César; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The overtopping of port breakwaters may affect the assets located at the breakwater lee side. If adaptation measures are not taken, the sea level rise will increase the overtopping discharges putting those assets at ...
  • The trophic status of an Amazonian estuary under anthropogenic pressure (Brazil) 

    Cunha Monteiro Brenardi, Marcela; Pereira, Luci Cajueiro Carneiro; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2016-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The effects of the anthropogenic process on the trophic status of the Caete estuary (located 150 km southwest of the Amazon delta) were undertaken under different climate conditions. To do this, oceanographic data were ...
  • Real-time simulation techniques for augmented learning in science and engineering 

    Quesada, C.; González, D.; Alfaro, Icíar; Cueto Prendes, Elias; Huerta, Antonio; Chinesta, Francisco (Springer, 2016-11)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this paper we present the basics of a novel methodology for the development of simulation-based and augmented learning tools in the context of applied science and engineering. It is based on the extensive use of model ...
  • Comparison of finite element and finite difference modelling results with measured performance of a reinforced soil wall 

    Puig Damians, Ivan; Bathurst, Richard; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro; Lloret Morancho, Antonio (2014)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
