    Heat treatment processing consists in heating a metallic material above austenitization temperature to later quickly cool it down. The accurate simulation of this phenomenon is a current industrial need in order to predict ...
  • Damage and failure modelling of composite materials for the automotive industry 

    Salas Ordóñez, Ana (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Fibre-reinforced polymer-based composite materials fail due to a wide variety of interacting damage mechanisms, which require complex constitutive models in order to develop Finite Element (FE) predictive analysis. In ...
  • Gradient based porosity calculation in casting simulation 

    Díez Rodríguez, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06-15)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Porosity is one of the most common defects in casting production. When some parts of the casting begin to solidify they contract due to the difference of densities between the liquid and solid phases. The areas that are ...
  • 3D FEM model of ground deformation in Deception Island (Antarctica)

    Ground deformation has been demonstrated to be one of the most common signals of volcanic unrest. A variety of processes can cause ground deformation in active volcanic areas (e.g. magmatic processes, pore pressure ...
  • Sensitivity analysis and experimental calibration for the Additive Manufacturing computational framework 

    Varona Poncela, Tomás (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-22)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    A reliable computational framework for the simulation of additive manufacturing by blown powder is crucial for its profitable use in the industrial world. Therefore, this Master Thesis addresses a validation of an ...
  • Development of a computational tool for structural verification of dams 

    Gracia Llinares, Lorenzo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-22)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Nowadays, dam safety is becoming more relevant in our society due to the importance of its functions (power generation, water supply, flood control) and the severity of the consequences in case of a serious breakdown. ...
  • Optimization of thermal energy storage systems for data centres 

    Codina Gessé, Marta (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-22)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Data centres are facilities used to house computer systems and associated components which aim for performance. The increment of these facilities is translated into a huge increment on energy consumption representing a ...
  • Study of the front cut out splices of an aircraft with a finite element model 

    Collado Uribe, José María (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Cut- Outs throw the fuselage are very common in commercial aircrafts. One of the most critical Cut- Out that an aircraft has in its fuselage, is the one used to mount the Horizontal Stabilizer because a very high ...
  • Development of an empirically-based numerical model for the BTMS design of an EV's lithium-ion battery pack 

    Millet Biosca, Lluís (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    Covenantee:  Fraunhofer-Institut für Solare Energiesysteme ISE
    In this thesis, the electrochemical and thermal behavior of an LFP lithium-ion pouch battery is modeled, within a finite elements method framework, in order to study the fast charge procedure that is sought in most of ...
