      Este trabajo consiste en analizar cómo interactúan las cubiertas esbeltas frente a las fuerzas del viento mediante el ejemplo de un estadio de fútbol: Anoeta. El mayor problema que presentan las cubiertas formadas por ...
    • Determinación de fuerzas aerodinámicas en una esfera y media esfera 

      Troyano Sánchez, Raúl (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-01-26)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Aquest treball de final de grau té com a objectiu estudiar les forces aerodinàmiques generades en una esfera llisa i mitja causada per un flux d'aire extern. Per a això, es realitza un anàlisi experimental al laboratori ...
    • Efficient aeroelastic analysis of inflatable structures using enhanced potential flow aerodynamics 

      Ortega, Enrique; Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Cuartero Zaragoza, Eric; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2019-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      An efficient method for the aeroelastic analysis of wind effects on inflatable structures is presented. The solution scheme is staggered and uses an explicit finite-element structural solver and potential flow aerodynamics. ...
    • Efficient aeroelastic analysis of wind loads on inflatable hangars 

      Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Ortega, Enrique (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Wind loads play a crucial role in inflatable structures. Unfortunately, design loads from safety regulations grossly overestimate the real aerodynamic forces. Thus, a more accurate estimation of wind loads is desirable. ...
    • Experimental visualization study of the velocity flow in the bass-reflex port of a loudspeaker 

      Cunill Jufré, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-01-20)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      A bass-reflex port is an open pipe that connect the volume of the loudspeaker with the surrounding environment. Its role is to accentuate the low frequency range of sound.  For some geometries a vortex shedding can be ...
