  • Dynamics of an inchworm nano-walker 

    Ciudad Álvarez, Aleix; Sancho, Jose Maria; Lacasta Palacio, Ana María (Elsevier Science, 2006-05-19)
    Article
    Open Access
    An inchworm processive mechanism is proposed to explain the motion of dimeric molecular motors such as kinesin.We present here preliminary results for this mechanism focusing on observables like mean velocity, coupling ...
  • Kinetic analysis of endothermic degradation of magnesium hydroxide, calcium hydroxide and calcium carbonate in the context of passive fire protection 

    Ciudad Álvarez, Aleix; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Lacasta Palacio, Ana María (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In a fire scenario, huge amounts of heat are generated and high temperatures rapidly achieved in such a way that the integrity of structural materials becomes compromised. One of the aims of passive fire protection is the ...
  • Physical analysis of a processive molecular motor: the conventional kinesin 

    Ciudad Álvarez, Aleix; Lacasta Palacio, Ana María; Sancho, Jose Maria (American Physical Society, 2005-09-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a model that allows for the derivation of the experimentally accesible observables: spatial steps, mean velocity, stall force, useful power, efficiency and randomness, etc. as a function of the adenosine triphosphate ...
