  • Hydraulic fills liquefaction : effect on quay stability 

    Tarragó Munté, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-03)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    The starting point of this thesis is the failure of part of a quay wall under construction. The quay was divided in two phases, failure affected Phase 1 only. The failure and all the relevant associated information on quay ...
  • Modelling time-dependent plastic behaviour of geomaterials 

    Song, Fei (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-28)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Representing the time-dependent plastic behaviour of geomaterials is a critical issue in the correct application of tunnelling design techniques such as the convergence-confinement method or numerical modelling. Furthermore, ...
  • Development of novel instruments and techniques for passive microwave remote sensing 

    Muñoz Martin, Joan Francesc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-17)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Earth Observation using satellites has helped to better model our planet. The goal of such systems is to provide large data sets to help to understand the effects of our actions on the climate, to predict storms in near ...
  • Urban mobility network design : functional analysis and modeling for a concentric city 

    Medina Tapia, Marcos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-15)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Cities face problems influencing urban mobility, such as traffic growth, congestion, explosive population growth, urban sprawl. According to the literature, traffic, congestion, and urban development have an interrelationship ...
  • Wireless sensors embedded in high permittivity lossy media 

    González López, Giselle (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-29)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    The design of wireless sensors for operation embedded in a medium with high losses creates a series of additional constraints that should be taken into consideration at design stage to enhance sensor performance. In such ...
