  • Viability, design and implementation and business plans of a regional airport in Europe 

    Tudoran Pavalan, Vlad (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-01-13)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Although being the continent with the highest number of airports, Europe has some problems in terms of air transport. There are a few zones which have the need of being better communicated in terms of air transit and there ...
  • Study on vertical-axis wind turbines using streamtube and dynamic stall models 

    Vallverdú Cabrera, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:   Illinois Institute of Technology
    The expected exhaustion of fossil sources of energy requires the improvement of other renewable sources, such as wind turbines. Vertical-axis wind turbines present very attractive performance characteristics but extremely ...
  • Symmetry-preserving discretizations applied to Large-Eddy Simulation techniques in Navier-Stokes equations 

    Plana Riu, Josep (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-09-28)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Direct Numerical Simulations of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations for relatively high Reynolds numbers, as required for airfoils, are extremely expensive in terms of number of CPUs as well as processing time. Thus, ...
  • Study of reduced-order modeling techniques for augmented reality applications

    Bachelor thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    In a world that is becoming more digital and online, powerful computation strategies can be used to performtest and simulations that reduce the design and validation costs of new products. However, standard FE computations ...
  • Study of buckling phenomena for smart structural applications 

    Llauradó Costa, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06-30)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    This project analyses the structural instability known as buckling, both from a displacement and energypoint of view. In order to do so, first of all, a time integration method is implemented and checked to beproperly ...
  • Study of thin-walled and periodic structures using model reduction and domain partition methods
