    A probabilistic earthquake risk assessment was developed for urban planning and emergency response activities in the landscape unit of 'Pla de Barcelona', Catalonia, Spain. This assessment was developed under an integral ...
  • Iber v3: manual de referencia e interfaz de usuario de las nuevas implementaciones 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Cea Gómez, Luis; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Lopez Gomez, David; Sañudo Costoya, Esteban; Corestein Poupeau, Georgina; García Alén, Gonzalo; Aragón Hernández, José Luis (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2022)
    Book
    Open Access
    Iber is a two-dimensional hydraulic model for the simulation of free surface flow in rivers and estuaries, and the simulation of environmental processes in fluvial hydraulics. Since the release of the first version of Iber, ...
  • A systematic review on MIVES: a sustainability-oriented multi-criteria decision-making method 

    Boix Cots, David; Pardo Bosch, Francesc; Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Aguado de Cea, Antonio; Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo (Elsevier, 2022-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sustainability has practically become a mandatory concept to be considered in every decision, and multiple decision-making methods have been adapted to take it into account. Among them, sustainability centred methods are ...
  • On the use of ensemble averaging techniques to accelerate the Uncertainty Quantification of CFD predictions in wind engineering 

    Tosi, Riccardo; Núñez Corbacho, Marc; Pons Prats, Jordi; Principe, Ricardo Javier; Rossi, Riccardo (2022-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work we focus on reducing the wall clock time required to compute statistical estimators of highly chaotic incompressible flows on high performance computing systems. Our approach consists of replacing a single ...
  • A machine learning-based surrogate model for the identification of risk zones due to off-stream reservoir failure 

    Silva Cancino, Nathalia; Salazar González, Fernando; Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest (2022-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Approximately 70,000 Spanish off-stream reservoirs, many of them irrigation ponds, need to be evaluated in terms of their potential hazard to comply with the new national Regulation of the Hydraulic Public Domain. This ...
  • Extension of 2D shallow water models to hydrological modelling 

    Cea, Luis; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; García Feal, Orlando; Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; Farfán Durán, Juan Fernando (International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), 2022)
    Conference report
