    • Bi-layer diaphragm walls : experimental and numerical analysis 

      Segura Castillo, Luis (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-11-22)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Leakage is a widespread problem associated with the construction of diaphragm walls whenever they are erected in water-bearing ground. The aim of the present research is to develop a new type of slurry wall: the bi-layer ...
    • Bi-layer diaphragm walls: structural and sectional analysis 

      Segura Castillo, Luis; Aguado de Cea, Antonio; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (2016-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      The bi-layer diaphragm wall, a new slurry wall type designed to cope with the problem of watertightness is studied in this paper. These walls consist of two bonded concrete layers, the first, a conventional Reinforced ...
    • Correlation of residual strength and fibre orientation for highly anisotropic SFRC 

      Segura Castillo, Luis; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Goodier, Chris; Austin, Simon; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2016)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The objective of this research was to evaluate the mechanical response of Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) with high anisotropy (produced by spraying). The results of an experimental program conducted with the ...
    • Environmental performance of rainwater harvesting strategies in Mediterranean buildings 

      Angrill Toledo, Sara; Segura Castillo, Luis; Petit Boix, Anna; Rieradevall Pons, Joan; Gabarrell Durany, Xavier; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (2017-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Purpose: The rapid urbanization and the constant expansion of urban areas during the last decades have locally led to increasing water shortage. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems have the potential to be an important ...
    • Expansions with different origins in a concrete dam with bridge over spillway 

      Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Segura Pérez, Ignacio; Segura Castillo, Luis; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (Elsevier, 2018-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      Concrete dams with expansions from different origins are rare and scarcely documented in the literature, therefore their study gains special interest. This study presents the case of a 62-year-old concrete dam with signs ...
    • Fibre distribution and tensile response anisotropy in sprayed fibre reinforced concrete 

      Segura Castillo, Luis; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Goodier, Chris; Aguado de Cea, Antonio; Austin, Simon (2018-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      Sprayed steel fibre reinforced concrete (SSFRC) is a material that tends to present anisotropy, due to the action of the spraying process inducing preferential fibre orientation. Despite numerous applications worldwide ...
