      This paper presents a use case of the Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) technique apply to Civil Engineering to monitor the dikes settlement on the Port of Barcelona. A geostatistical analysis of the two available ...
    • Compresibilidad de escoleras. Influencia de la humedad relativa 

      Hueso Cuberos, Oscar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2003-12-01)
      Minor thesis
      Open Access
      Castellà: Las escolleras presentan algunas particularidades en su comportamiento mecánico y volumétrico como son el desarrollo de deformaciones diferidas en el tiempo y de deformaciones de colapso causadas por el humedecimiento. ...
    • Coupled models in dam engineering 

      González Gutiérrez, María De Los Ángeles (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-10-21)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Rock ll dams are certainly one of the most important engineering structures due to their economic advantages and exible design. Unfortunately their vulnerability to overtopping still remains their weakest point. For that ...
    • Evaluación de ecuaciones de resistencia al flujo sobre escollera 

      López Alonso, Raúl; Barragan Fernandez, Javier D.; Colomer Cugat, M. Angeles (2006-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      Uno de los principales problemas que surgen a la hora de diseñar o analizar hidráulicamente cauces revestidos de escollera es la incertidumbre asociada a la estimación de los coeficientes de resistencia al flujo. El presente ...
    • Evaluation of wave loads on a new type of perforated caisson 

      Vazquez, Miguel Angel; Negro, Vicente; Lopez-Gutierrez, Jose Santos; Monso de Prat, José Luis (2016-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      A new type of perforated breakwater has been tested combining the advantages of cylindrical geometry with stepped wave energy dissipation. Thus, the new type of caisson implies a significant reduction of maximum wave forces, ...
    • Hydro-mechanical behaviour of water-repellent gravels 

      Monserrat Amat, Marina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-01-25)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      El comportamiento de escolleras y gravas ha sido ampliamente estudiado debido al gran número de aplicaciones de estos materiales en ingeniería civil. Las escolleras experimentan una deformación de colapso bajo carga ...
    • Overtopping formula for vertical tiers-headed breakwaters 

      Altomare, Corrado; Damiani, Leonardo; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The semi-empirical methods are useful tools to understand the wave overtopping phenomena, but uncertainty remains on their applicability. It’s necessary to carry out campaign surveys or laboratory tests to support them. ...
    • Shoreline response to detached breakwaters: overview of design guidelines and application to field cases 

      Pérez Boloix, Guillermo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-10-18)
      Minor thesis
      Open Access
      Anglès: This study consists on the analysis of detached breakwaters and their influence on the shoreline response. Their importance to protect coastal strips against erosion and the difficulty to determine their complete ...
    • Variability of wave impact measurements on vertical breakwaters 

      Marzeddu, Andrea; Oliveira, Tiago; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2017-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      The measurement of wave-induced impacts on structures involves significant scientific and engineering challenges. Regular nearly breaking pgbgand broken waves generated following cnoidal and first-order Stokes wavemaker ...
    • Wave reflection on dissipative quay walls: an experimental study 

      Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim (2013)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The paper discusses the influence of slope porosity and model scale for a low reflective vertical quay. Physical model tests were carried out in the small and large scale facilities at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, ...
