    • Analysis of the effects of friction on tunned mass dampers. Application to slender tower structures 

      Sabat Bayarri, Arnau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-24)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The thesis will focus on the effects of imperfect tuned mass dampers with non-neglible friction coefficient in the mass sliding surface. The goal is to understand how the friction affects response and assess a design methodology.
    • Latticed towers. Behaviour, analysis, and design considerations 

      Maqueda Castellote, Pablo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Manitoba, 2009)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Latticed towers are used in several industrial activities due to the fact that they are a relatively inexpensive and a reliable structure. In places where the maintenance could be an issue, such as cold weather countries, ...
