  • Comparison of different low-cost sensors for structural health monitoring 

    Komarizadehasl, Seyedmilad; Turmo Coderque, José; Mobaraki, Behnam; Lozano Galant, José Antonio (CRC Press, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Recently, the need for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and inspection is growing as a result of the increasing age of the structural stock worldwide. SHM includes bringing into use a sensor or an array of sensors into ...
  • Response of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Wind 15MW WindCrete and Activefloat floating wind turbines to wind and second-order waves 

    Mahfouz, Mohammad Youssef; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Trubat Casal, Pau; Hernández Blanco, Sergio; Vigara, Fernando; Pegalajar Jurado, Antonio; Bredmose, Henrik; Salari, Mohammad (Copernicus Office, 2021-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The EU Horizon 2020 project COREWIND (COst REduction and increase performance of floating WIND technology) has developed two floating platforms for the new International Energy Agency (IEA) Wind 15MW reference wind turbine. ...
  • Modeling serviceability performance and ultimate capacity of corroded reinforced and prestressed concrete structures 

    Marí Bernat, Antonio Ricardo; Bairán García, Jesús Miguel; Oller Ibars, Eva; Duarte Gómez, Noemí (Wiley, 2021-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Corrosion reduces the area of reinforcement steel, affects its mechanical properties, the bond properties, and produces concrete cracking. Thus, reduction of the bearing capacity and stiffness, increments of deflections ...
  • Embedded distributed optical fiber sensors for health monitoring of concrete bridges 

    Bado, Mattia Francesco; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Kaklauskas, Gintaris (CRC Press, 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The idea behind Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is the identification of early structural malfunctions, which, in the case of concrete bridges, is mainly shown as deformation and cracking and the consequent feedback on ...
  • Analysis using modal information in SSI by dynamic observability method 

    Peng, Tian; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Turmo Coderque, José (CRC Press, 2021)
    Conference report

    Fernández Sánchez, Pablo Gonzalo; Marí Bernat, Antonio Ricardo; Oller Ibars, Eva; Domingo Tarancón, Magí (Féderation Internationale du Béton (fib), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    RC slabs can be subjected to transverse loads and in-plane tensile forces simultaneously, as it occurs in top slabs of continuous box girder bridges at intermediate supports, or in floor slabs supported on columns and ...
  • Planning low-error SHM strategy by constrained observability method 

    Peng, Tian; Nogal, María; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Turmo Coderque, José (2021-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Structural identification using dynamical parameters (such as the natural vibration frequencies and mode shapes) is an important issue, especially in bridges or high-rise buildings. However, incorrect decisions could happen ...
