    Present 3D printing technology allows the efficient design and construction of structures with complex shapes and high porosity satisfying biological and coastal protection demands. In this case, an array of ultra-porous ...
  • Experimental set-up and calibration errors for mapping wave-breaking pressures on marine structures 

    Marzeddu, Andrea; Stagonas, Dimitris; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Capturing the detailed spatial variation of pressures induced by breaking waves on physical model structures has become possible using a high resolution mapping system. It can provide data with 4 measuring points/cm2, ...
  • Impulsive wave loads on rigid structure, an experimental approach 

    Marzeddu, Andrea; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Within the European project ‘Hydralab IV’, HyRes we aim to improve the characterization of wave loads on rigid structures and the associated response by carrying out some laboratory experiments. Wave loads on rigid structures ...

  • Measuring impact loads on rigid coastal structures 

    Marzeddu, Andrea (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-04-19)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is the study of laboratory effects on the measurement of wave impact induced loads on rigid maritime structures. A high number of experiments (more then 4000 using regular wave attacks) have been carried ...
  • Measuring wave impact induced pressures with a pressure mapping system 

    Stagonas, Dimitris; Marzeddu, Andrea; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Muller, Gerald (2016-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    The use of a pressuremapping system formeasuring wave impact induced pressures is evaluated in this paper. A set-up and a calibrationmethodology are suggested and employed for thiswork. The system is validated against ...
