      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A tissue machine suffering from Yankee chatter marks has been experimentally investigated. A series of vibration measurements during normal operation at various Yankee speeds on both the creping and the cleaning blade ...
    • Experimental investigation of added mass effects on a hydrofoil under cavitation conditions 

      Torre Rodríguez, Óscar de la; Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Farhat, Mohamed (2013-03-13)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The influence of leading edge sheet cavitation and supercavitation on the added mass effects experienced by a 2-D NACA0009 truncated hydrofoil has been experimentally investigated in a hydrodynamic tunnel. A non-intrusive ...
    • Numerical modal analysis of a Kaplan turbine runner 

      Roig Bauzà, Rafel; Torre Rodríguez, Óscar de la; Jou Santacreu, Esteban; Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier (2020)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The aim of the research has been to investigate the change of dynamic behavior of a Kaplan turbine runner when submerged in still water. More specifically, the effects of the added mass on the modes of vibration have been ...
    • Numerical simulation of cavitation erosion aggressiveness induced by unsteady cloud cavitation
