    • Diseño y construcción de un hidroavión biplaza 

      Planella Cuadrat, Carles (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2023-10-30)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      This project began a year and a half ago with the acquisition by Carles Algué of the assembly kit of a two-seater seaplane corresponding to the Sea Rey model from the manufacturer Progressive Aerodyne. The aircraft came ...
    • Diseño y estudio de un sistema de aerofreno de un "hydroplane" 

      Gonzalez Reverte, Francisco Javier (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2007-07-06)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      El presente Trabajo de Fin de Carrera tiene como objetivo el estudio aerodinámico de un hydroplane, una barca motorizada exclusiva para carreras. Los hydroplanes son las barcas más rápidas que existen y se llaman hydroplanes ...

    • Numerical investigation into the influence on hydrofoil vibrations of water tunnel test section acoustic modes 

      Wang, Wei; Zhou, Lingjiu; Wang, Zhengwei; Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; De La Torre, Oscar (2019-06-17)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      High-speed water tunnels are typically used to investigate the single-phase and two-phase flows around hydrofoils for hydraulic machinery applications but their dynamic behavior is not usually evaluated. The modal analysis ...
    • Numerical investigation of the cavitation effect on natural frequencies of a hydrofoil 

      Liu, Xin; Zhou, Lingjiu; Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; Wang, Zhengwei (2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The added mass effects on a NACA0009 hydrofoil under cavitation conditions determined in a cavitation tunnel have been numerically simulated using finite element method (FEM). Based on the validated model, the effects of ...
    • Projecte d’un avió contra incendis amfibi 

      Ayats López, Roger (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-06)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      El nombre d’aeronaus amfíbies dissenyades per a l’extinció d’incendis és molt reduït. Només s’ha desenvolupat un únic model específicament amb aquest objectiu, mentre que els altres són meres adaptacions d’aeronaus comercials ...
