  • Anàlisi estructural d’elements de formigó reciclat 

    Torres Serra, Joel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-06-19)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    [ANGLÈS] Experiences with recycled aggregates, recycled aggregate concrete and recycled reinforced concrete regarded in the literature, show that sufficient strength is achievable in these materials to consider its use ...
  • A new column collapse apparatus for the characterisation of the flowability of granular materials 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2020-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The packaging industry is lacking a standard methodology to characterise the granular flow of a wide range of powders and grains in actual handling conditions. We present a new fully-instrumented granular column collapse ...
  • A new granular column collapse device to characterise flowability of bulk materials 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    A wide range of bulk materials with different physical properties are nowadays handled in the packaging industry using different material conveying techniques. Nevertheless, experimental methodologies to characterise ...
  • Classifying granular materials for feeding performance using experimental and numerical techniques 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Caba, Joan; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Flowability of powders and bulk solids is critical for the packaging industry in the selection and design of bulk material handling equipment. Nowadays, a variety of feeder systems are used for dosing operations in bagging ...
  • Discrete element modelling of granular column collapse tests with industrial applications 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Tunuguntla, Deepak R.; Denisen, Irana; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Describing the behaviour of granular materials is a challenging issue for the industry. Our work concerns packaging industries where packing equipment is designed to handle a wide range of powders and bulk solids with ...
  • Flowability of granular materials with industrial applications: an experimental approach 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio; Caba, Joan; Arderiu, Xavier; Padullés, Josep-Manel; González, Juanjo (EPJ Web of Conferences, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Designing bulk material handling equipment requires a thorough understanding of the mechanical behaviour of powders and grains. Experimental characterization of granular materials is introduced focusing on flowability. A ...
  • Hygroscopicity issues in powder and grain technology 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The effect of hygroscopicity on flowability of powders and bulk solids with applications in the packaging industry is experimentally and numerically investigated. Firstly, four granular materials are tested at different ...
