    Most structural systems are designed to operate in their elastic regime, resulting in a linear relationship between applied loads and resulting displacements. This behavior is easy to analyze but not necessarily optimal ...
  • Evaluating the impacts of start-up and clearance behaviors in a signalized network: A network fundamental diagram approach 

    Morales Fresquet, Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-27)
    Master thesis

    The objective of the present TFM is to analyze the performance of the Advisory Speed Limit (ASL), which is a control strategy, inside a city's signalized network grid using Newell's simplified car-following model with ...
  • Modeling of traffic instabilities and phantom jam: The LWR model with stochastic speed-density relation 

    Alcoba Corominas, Alicia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-27)
    Master thesis

    This study will evaluate the real causes of phantom traffic jam by evaluating different continuous car-following models under different conditions. Finding the origins of these instabilities would lead to apply some control ...
  • Novel airplane roll mechanism implementation in a wind tunnel 

    Ventura Siches, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-09-25)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of California, Irvine
    According to recent research conducted by professor Haithem E. Taha and Ahmed M. Hasan, there is a loss in the control capabilities of the ailerons when flying at stall regime. Not only the sensitivity of this control ...

    Variable speed limits (VSL) are an effective method for preventing, eliminating, or delaying the occurrence of capacity drop at active bottlenecks. Many studies are focused on feedback algorithms to adapt ...
  • Resource, recycling and waste challenges for storage resources in a 100% renewable economy 

    Tirado Creixell, Núria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-05)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of California, Irvine
    In this thesis, the battery storage needed for a 100% renewable economy was calculated. It was determined that the use of batteries as a worldwide energy storage solution is not viable. Other systems, such as power-to-gas, ...
  • Simulation of unsteady flow: dynamic stall on a pitching wing 

    Vescovi Pérez, Gonzalo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of California, Irvine
    La entrada en pérdida dinámica se ha estudiado utilizando CFD para el caso de un perfil NACA0012 3D haciendo un movimiento de cabeceo, a un número de Reynolds moderado. Los resultados se compararán con resultados experimentales. ...
  • Texture-Based brain tumor segmentation in MR images 

    Rodríguez Gálvez, Borja (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-08-02)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of California, Irvine
    In this thesis, we explored the idea of texture as a tumor segmentation approach in MR images. To deal with this, we extended the definition of the texture descriptors provided by Kovalev et al., co-occurrence matrices ...
