    Remotely sensed optical data are fundamental to be integrated into biogeochemical models, since the key role of the optical properties on lower trophic dynamics. In this paper, it is shown how ocean optics satellite products ...
  • Dynamic model for axial motion of horizontal pelton turbine and validation in actual failure case 

    Rodriguez Godoy, Cristian Gabriel; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Egusquiza Montagut, Mònica; Reyes, S.; Zambrano, D.; Tapia Ladino, Juan Antonio (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Pelton turbines are important machines for power generation from a renewable energy source such as water. For power rates below 20 MW, the rotor of Pelton turbines is usually in horizontal position. Considering ideal ...
  • Advanced analysis of in-service movements of vehicle closures 

    Fernández Osete, Ismael; Montané, Francesc Xavier; García, Juan Jesús; Maureso, Miquel (2004)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Closures (doors, hood, tailgate, etc.) are attached to the vehicle body by means of articulated elements that allow a high level of mobility. This may cause the poor vibration performance of the closure when exposed to ...
  • Discharge coefficients of a heavy suspension nozzle 

    Río Cano, Carlos; Monshi Tousi, Navid; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria; Comas Amengual, Ángel (MDPI, 2021-03-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    The suspensions used in heavy vehicles often consist of several oil and two gas chambers. In order to perform an analytical study of the mass flow transferred between two gas chambers separated by a nozzle, and when ...
  • Revision of cancellation at the edge approach for active noise barrier 

    Sohrabi, Shahin; Pàmies Gómez, Teresa; Romeu Garbí, Jordi (2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In most of the investigations, the active noise barriers are configured placing both secondary sources and error sensors close to the edge of barriers, but it is unclear how far is this approach from the maximum theoretical ...
  • Prediction of mechanical properties of human rib cortical bone using fractal dimension 

    Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; García Vilana, Silvia; Sánchez Molina, David; Llumà Fuentes, Jordi; Martínez González, Eva; Rebollo-Soria, M. Carmen; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos (Gordon and Breach Science Publishers, 2020-10-26)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A large number of post mortem human subjects was used to investigate the relation between the micro-structure of rib cortical bone and the mechanical properties using Fractal Dimension. Uniaxial tensile tests were performed ...
  • Investigation on electromagnetic vibration energy harvesting in water distribution control valves 

    Ordóñez Izquierdo, Víctor Hugo; Arcos Villamarín, Robert; Romeu Garbí, Jordi; Josefsson, Andreas (2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Control stations of a water distribution system monitor several variables such as the pressure, the flow, and the quality of water. For these monitoring tasks, wireless sensor networks with ultra-low power consumption ...
  • Investigate the effect of the active noise barrier on the reduction of noise level at the shadow zone and the neighboring building 

    Sohrabi, Shahin; Pàmies Gómez, Teresa; Romeu Garbí, Jordi (Institute of Noise Control Engineering, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Barriers are among the most widely used strategy to control the ambient noise in the urban areas. However, the previous studies approve the inefficiency of the barriers to degrade low-frequency spectra noise. The technique ...
  • Efficiency of isolated concrete blocks applied in railway slab tracks as mitigation measures for railway-induced ground-borne vibration in tunnels 

    Arcos Villamarín, Robert; Liravi, Hassan; Ghangale, Dhananjay; Romeu Garbí, Jordi (Institute of Noise Control Engineering, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a study of the efficiency of isolated concrete blocks as vibration mitigation measures for railway-induced ground-borne vibration problems in subway metro tunnels. The study is performed numerically, ...
  • Flow topology and heat transfer analysis of slotted and axisymmetric synthetic impinging jets 

    Miró Jané, Arnau; Soria Guerrero, Manel; Cajas García, Juan Carlos; Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María; Moulinec, Charles (2021-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This work is focused on exploring the flow and heat transfer capabilities for slotted and axisymmetric cavity configurations for synthetic impinging jets; the jet is enclosed between two isothermal parallel plates, impinging ...
  • A 2.5D FEM-BEM-MFS methodology for soil-structure interaction problems in layered half-spaces 

    Liravi, Hassan; Arcos Villamarín, Robert; Ghangale, Dhananjay; Romeu Garbí, Jordi (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a new prediction methodology to deal with longitudinally invariant soil-structure interaction problems in elastodynamics is presented. The method uses the finite-element method to model the structure, the ...
  • Freeform reversible embedding of suspended hydrogels for the manufacturing of biomedical applications 

    Tejo Otero, Aitor; Colly, Arthur; Courtial, Edwin-Joffrey; Fenollosa i Artés, Felip; Buj Corral, Irene; Marquette, Cristophe A. (2020)
