    We investigate the joint implementation of back-propagation and RF-pilot tone for fiber nonlinear compensation in POLMUX-16QAM and show that the nonlinear tolerance is drastically improved when compared to OFDM system
  • Experimental testing of joints for seismic design of lightweight structures: part 1: screwed joints in straps 

    Casafont Ribera, Miguel; Arnedo Pena, Alfredo; Roure Fernández, Francisco; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2006-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Connections in x-braced shear walls play a crucial role in the seismic performance of lightweight structures: they should be strong enough to allow energy dissipation via plastification of the diagonal straps. An extensive ...
  • Experimental testing of joints for seismic design of lightweight structures: part 2: bolted joints in straps 

    Casafont Ribera, Miguel; Arnedo Pena, Alfredo; Roure Fernández, Francisco; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2006-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    An experimental testing campaign on tensile bolted joints between straps is reported. Two dominant failure modes are identified: (1) tilting, bearing and tearing of the sheets (TS) and (2) tilting, bearing and net-section ...
  • Inflammation evaluation through low-cost 3D scanning of human body parts 

    Girona San Miguel, Guillermo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-01-28)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    [CATALÀ] S'ha creat un programa que permet carregar models 3D adquirits a partir d'articulacions reals. Utilitzant diferents tècniques com l'alineació de models, la comparació visual i el càlcul de diferents mesures l'eina ...
  • Mejora de la resistencia al desgaste de titanio y sus aleaciones utilizados para prótesis articulares 

    Gil, F.J.; Crespo, A.; Manero Planella, José María; Rodríguez Rius, Daniel; Planell Estany, Josep Anton (Sociedad Ibérica de Biomecánica y Biomateriales, 2002-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Se han estudiado los endurecimientos superficiales que se producen en la aleación Ti 6Al 4V, mediante los procesos de anodización electroquímica y mediante diferentes tratamientos térmicos a distintas microestructuras ...
  • Método de análisis biomecánico de la marcha en pacientes portadores de prótesis de rodilla 

    Morgenstern de Muller, Christian Rudolf; Parreño Catalán, José Luis; Ruano Gil, D. (Sociedad Ibérica de Biomecánica y Biomateriales, 1994)
    Article
    Open Access
    El análisis de la marcha ha adquirido en los últimos tiempos un extraordinario desarrollo. En la actualidad la ciencia biomecánica ofrece un gran campo de actuación para el estudio de la patología de la deambulación, ...
  • Numerical modeling of the double punch test for plain concrete 

    Pros Parés, Alba; Díez, Pedro; Molins i Borrell, Climent (2011-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Double punch test is used to indirectly assess the tensile strength of plain concrete, ft. For this normalized test, the tensile strength is obtained as a function of the failure load, P, which is expressed as f_t = F(P). ...
  • Sliding contact conditions using the master-slave approach with application on geometrically non-linear beams 

    Muñoz Romero, José; Jelenic, Gordan (2004)
    Article
    Open Access
    Frictionless sliding conditions between two bodies are usually defined using either the method of Lagrangian multipliers or by prescribing an artificial (penalty) stiffness which resists the penetration at the contact ...
  • Study and design of a balance postural control system 

    Fonseca Benítez, Andrea (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06-24)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    The ability to maintain a proper posture is becoming a more interesting topic as it is necessary to understand the behavior of the human body to be able to apply this knowledge to robotics and mechanics. In this project ...
  • Study of patient-orthosis interaction forces in rehabilitation therapies
