  • Hierarchical micro-adaptation of biological structures by mechanical stimuli 

    Sáez Viñas, Pablo; Pena, Estefanía; Doblaré, Manuel; Martínez, Miguel Ángel (2013)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Remodeling and other evolving processes such as growth or morphogenesis are key factors in the evolution of biological tissue in response to both external and internal epigenetic stimuli. Based on the description of these ...
  • An anisotropic microsphere-based approach for fiber orientation adaptation in soft tissue 

    Sáez Viñas, Pablo; Pena, Estefanía; Doblaré, Manuel; Martínez, Miguel Ángel (2011)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Evolutionary processes in biological tissue, such as adaptation or remodeling, represent an enterprising area of research. In this paper, we present a multiscale model for the remodeling of fibered structures, such as ...
  • On the use of the Bingham statistical distribution in microsphere-based constitutive models for arterial tissue 

    Alastrué, V.; Sáez Viñas, Pablo; Martínez, M.A,; Doblaré, Manuel (2010)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Constitutive models for arterial tissue have been an active research field during the last years. The main micro-constituents of blood vessels are different types of cells and the extra-cellular matrix formed by an isotropic ...
  • Variational multiscale based dissipation models for the estimation of atmospheric seeing 

    Baiges Aznar, Joan; Codina, Ramon (Elsevier, 2015-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this work we present a numerical model for the estimation of atmospheric seeing in observation sites. The particularity of the method is that it is based on a Variational Multiscale turbulence model, its main feature ...
  • On the relationship between {1 1 2¯ 2} and {1 1 2¯ 6} conjugate twins and double extension twins in rolled pure Mg 

    Ostapovets, Andriy; Buršík, Jirí; Krahula, Karel; Král, Lubomír; Serra Tort, Ana María (2017-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The paper presents a new type of twin-like objects observed in rolled pure magnesium. They have {11¯26} and {11¯22} habit planes and their misorientations to the matrix are close to 56° and 63° about ¿10¯10¿ axis, ...
  • Self-compacting concrete in the temple of Sagrada Familia 

    Rodríguez, Gemma; Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2017-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The Temple of Sagrada Familia presents singularities in terms of both the original design by architect Antoni Gaudí and the duration of the construction, which started more than 120 years ago. In fact, its design was ...
  • Undergraduate geotechnical engineering education of the 21st century 

    Wirth, Xenia; Jiang, Ning-Jun; Silva, Talia da; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Della Vecchia, G. (2016-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Forum papers are thought-provoking opinion pieces or essays founded in fact, sometimes containing speculation, on a civil engineering topic of general interest and relevance to the readership of the journal.
  • Coupled THM modelling of engineered barriers for the final disposal of spent nuclear fuel isolation 

    Toprak, Erdem; Olivella Pastallé, Sebastià; Pintado, X. (London: The Geological Society, 2016-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper describes the thermohydromechanical (THM) simulation of engineered barrier systems (EBS) for the final disposal of nuclear spent fuel in Finland. The bentonite barriers were simulated with the Barcelona Basic ...
  • Mechanics reveals the biological trigger in wrinkly fingers 

    Sáez Viñas, Pablo; Zöllner, A. M. (2017-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Fingertips wrinkle due to long exposure to water. The biological reason for this morphological change is unclear and still not fully understood. There are two main hypotheses for the underlying mechanism of fingertip ...
  • Open-source digital technologies for low-cost monitoring of historical constructions 

    Basto, Camilo; Pelà, Luca; Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio (2017-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper shows new possibilities of using novel, open-source, low-cost platforms for the structural health monitoring of heritage structures. The objective of the study is to present an assessment of increasingly available ...
