    • Arc tracking control in insulation systems for aeronautic applications: challenges, opportunities, and research needs 

      Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Gómez Pau, Álvaro; Moreno Eguilaz, Juan Manuel; Bogarra Rodríguez, Santiago (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-03-16)
      Article
      Open Access
      Next generation aircrafts will use more electrical power to reduce weight, fuel consumption, system complexity and greenhouse gas emissions. However, new failure modes and challenges arise related to the required voltage ...
    • Bio-based insulation materials and their hygrothermal performance in a building envelope system (ETICS) 

      Palumbo, Mariana; Lacasta Palacio, Ana María; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Giraldo Forero, María del Pilar; Correal Modol, Eduard (2018-09-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Bio-based insulation materials (such as wood or hemp) are emerging as a promising alternative in building envelope applications, aiming at improving in-use energy efficiency. When compared to common insulation materials ...
    • Caracterització mecànica de polímers compostos en conductors elèctrics

    • Characterization of a phenolic Resin for Offshore Applications 

      Campo Zorío, Javier (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Aberdeen, 2013)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Covenantee:   University of Aberdeen
      Nowadays, there is a strong interest in wet insulation systems for offshore applications. Oil and gas extractions are being performed in deeper waters, where the extreme conditions of temperature and pressure lead flow ...
    • Characterization of thermal insulation materials developed with crop wastes and natural binders 

      Lacasta Palacio, Ana María; Palumbo Fernández, Mariana; Navarro Ezquerra, Antonia; Avellaneda Díaz-Grande, Jaume (2014)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      This paper seeks to discuss the possibility of developing insulation materials for the construction sector made of non-industrial crop wastes and natural binders. Three different crop wastes widely available in Spain, ...
    • Diseño de un aislador galvánico USB 

      Rodríguez Orihuela, Andreu Josep (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06-28)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      El prototipo de aislador USB que se usa actualmente en Neuroelectrics Barcelona S.L.U. no cumple con la última publicación de la normativa de equipos médicos debido a que en la última edición de la norma UNE-EN 14385:2015 ...
    • Dropping an impurity into a Chern insulator: A polaron view on topological matter 

      Camacho-Guardián, Arturo; Goldman, Nathan; Massignan, Pietro Alberto; Bruun, Georg M. (American Physical Society (APS), 2019-02-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      We investigate the properties of an impurity particle interacting with a Fermi gas in a Cherninsulating state. The interaction leads to the formation of an exotic polaron, which consists of a coherent superposition of the ...
