      En este artículo se presenta la aplicación de un nuevo método para la detección de daños en estructuras a partir de su respuesta estática. Este método aplica las técnicas de observabilidad para resolver el sistema de ...
    • New tool to help decision making in civil engineering 

      Castillo Ron, Enrique; Lozano Galant, José Antonio; Nogal Macho, María; Turmo Coderque, José (2015-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      Structural collapses have indirectly produced important progress in science. The last lesson learnt from structural collapses reveals the important role of polyrational systems of equations in the Civil Engineering field, ...
    • Numerical damage identification of structures by observability techniques based on static loading tests 

      Nogal Macho, María; Lozano Galant, José Antonio; Turmo Coderque, José; Castillo Ron, Enrique (2016-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      This article proposes the application of the observability techniques to deal with damage detection in bridges from their structural response under static loading tests. Unlike previous works based on a symbolic approach ...
    • Observability method for structural system identification 

      LOZANO-GALANT, José Antonio; Castillo Ron, Enrique; Nogal Macho, María; Turmo Coderque, José (International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineers (IABSE), 2014)
      Conference report

      The structural response of any structure is traditionally predicted by simplistic physics-based models. In these models the mechanical and geometrical properties are assumed as known. Nevertheless, this is not the case in ...
    • Selection of measurement sets in static structural identification of bridges using observability trees 

      Lozano Galant, José Antonio; Nogal Macho, María; Turmo Coderque, José; Castillo Ron, Enrique (2015-05)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This paper proposes an innovative method for selection of measurement sets in static parameter identification of concrete or steel bridges. This method is proved as a systematic tool to address the first steps of Structural ...
    • Solving some special cases of monomial ratio equations appearing frequently in physical and engineering problems 

      Castillo Ron, Enrique; Nogal Macho, María; Lozano Galant, José Antonio; Turmo Coderque, José (2016)
      Article
      Open Access
      We first show that monomial ratio equations are not only very common in Physics and Engineering, but the natural type of equations in many practical problems. More precisely, in the case of models involving scale variables ...
