    • Air demand estimation in bottom outlets with the particle finite element method. Susqueda Dam case study 

      Salazar González, Fernando; San Mauro Saiz, Javier; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (Springer, 2017-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      Dam bottom outlets play a vital role in dam operation and safety, as they allow controlling the water surface elevation below the spillway level. For partial openings, water flows under the gate lip at high velocity and ...
    • Applications of numerical methods in design and evaluation of overtopping protection systems 

      Salazar González, Fernando; San Mauro Saiz, Javier; Larese De Tetto, Antonia; Irazábal González, Joaquín; Morán Moya, Rafael; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Toledo Municio, Miguel Ángel (Colorado State University, 2016)

      The development of overtopping protection systems often requires detailed analyses of complex physical phenomena. This hinders the comprehensive knowledge of their behavior, and therefore the development of suitable design ...
    • Hydraulic and stability analysis of the supporting layer of wedge-shaped blocks 

      San Mauro Saiz, Javier; Larese De Tetto, Antonia; Salazar González, Fernando; Irazábal González, Joaquín; Morán Moya, Rafael; Toledo Municio, Miguel Ángel (Colorado State University, 2016)

      Wedge shaped blocks (WSB) are attracting increasing attention as protection against overtopping for earth and rock-fill dams. However, there are limited examples of application and some aspects of the technology merit ...
    • Shockwaves in spillways with the particle finite element method 

      Salazar González, Fernando; San Mauro Saiz, Javier; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (Springer, 2020-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Changes in direction and cross section in supercritical hydraulic channels generate shockwaves which result in an increase in flow depth with regard to that for uniform regime. These disturbances are propagated downstream ...
