    • Características constructivas de un túnel de viento de bajo-coste para aplicación local 

      Villa Farias, Joel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10-13)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Wind tunnels have been used widely in the past 50 years in industry and research. The theme of this project has been chosen before the desire to build some kind of aeronautics-related device in Zaragoza. A wind of this ...

      [CATALÀ] Aquest projecte es centra en realitzar l’estudi i millora dels alerons davanter i posterior d’un Formula Renault Mygale ‘96 des del punt de vista aerodinàmic. Expliquem des de l’inici la importància que té ...
    • Numerical wind tunnel for aerodynamic and aeroelastic characterization of bridge deck sections 

      Scotta, Roberto; Lazzari, Massimiliano; Stecca, Enrico; Cotela Dalmau, Jordi; Rossi, Riccardo (2016-04)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The aim of the present study is to propose a reliable engineering procedure to analyze bridges subjected to wind loads by-passing the expensive wind tunnel tests thanks to numerical simulations. These exploit Kratos, a ...
    • Otterboard hydrodynamic performance testing in flume tank and wind tunnel facilities 

      Mellibovsky Elstein, Fernando; Prat Farran, Joana d'Arc; Notti, Emilio; Sala, Antonello (2018-02-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      © 2017 Elsevier LtdTwo pelagic otterboards, previously tested in a wind tunnel, have been tested in a flume tank prior to their analysis in real working conditions in sea trials. This intermediate step aims at providing ...
    • Particle image velocimetry measurements on a birdlike airfoil 

      Pascual Massana, Alba (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2008-09-29)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      The objective of this project is to study the aerodynamics around a birdlike airfoil. The variables to investigate are the turbulent shear stress and the pressure distribution. With this aim, two experiments were carried ...

    • Tensegrity ring for a sports arena formfinding and testing 

      Peña Villamil, Diana Maritza; Llorens Duran, Josep Ignasi de; Sastre Sastre, Ramon; Crespo Artiaga, Daniel; Tristancho Martínez, Joshua (2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The current prototype’s key contribution to the field of light-weight structures is that it is the first time that a pure tensegrity ring has been used in place of a compression ring. This design features a cladding ...
    • Testing otter board hydrodynamic performances in wind tunnel facilities 

      Mellibovsky Elstein, Fernando; Prat Farran, Joana d'Arc; Notti, Emilio; Sala, Antonello (2015-08-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The feasibility and potential advantages of wind tunnel testing of otter board designs are assessed. Traditional flume tank tests incur high operational costs and present some limitations in terms of flexibility and accuracy. ...
