  • Reconstructing the Aznalcóllar mine accident 20 year later: numerical modelling of the flood 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Dolz Ripollès, Josep (CRC Press, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The Aznalcóllar mine-pond break is the most catastrophic mining accident regis-tered in the Iberian Peninsula (April 1998), and caused a tailings spill that affected around 45 km of the Agrio and Guadiamar Rivers. The flood ...
  • Classification of granular materials via flowability-based clustering with application to bulk feeding 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (2021-01-22)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Feeder selection impacts the performance of bagging machinery throughout its life cycle, and yet it is usually based on qualitative assessments of flowability. We propose a data analysis methodology aimed at verifying the ...
  • A stabilized mixed finite element approximation for incompressible finite strain solid dynamics using a total Lagrangian formulation 

    Castañar Pérez, Inocencio; Baiges Aznar, Joan; Codina, Ramon (2020-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work a new methodology for both the nearly and fully incompressible transient finite strain solid mechanics problem is presented. To this end, the momentum equation is complemented with a constitutive law for the ...
  • How good are symmetric triangular synthetic storms to represent real events for coastal hazard modelling 

    Duo, Enrico; Sanuy Vázquez, Marc; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Ciavola, Paolo (2020-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Coastal risk assessments rely on proper quantification of storm-induced erosion and flooding, and often involve calculations via numerical models. When the real time-series data of a storm are not available as forcing ...
  • Optimización del cálculo de la Vía de Intenso Desagüe con criterios hidráulicos 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Escolano Tercero, Enrique (2020-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    La legislación española actual exige que en los estudios de inundabilidad se delimite la Zona de Flujo Preferente (ZFP), compuesta por envolvente de la Zona de Inundación Peligrosa (ZIP) y la Vía de Intenso Desagüe (VID). ...
  • Automated data analysis for static structural health monitoring of masonry heritage structures 

    Makoond, Nirvan Chandra; Pelà, Luca; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel (Wiley, 2020-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Masonry heritage structures are often affected by slow irreversible deterioration mechanisms that can jeopardise structural stability in the foreseeable future. Static structural health monitoring (SHM), aimed at the ...
  • Hydrographic variability and estuarine classification of Inhambane Bay (Mozambique) 

    Solana Arteche, Gorka; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2020-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This study investigates the hydrographic variability and the estuarine classification obtained from a set of field campaign data in Inhambane Bay (Mozambique). In situ measured salinity, temperature and sea-level data, ...
  • Early warning system for flood warning in campings 

    Olivares Cerpa, Gonzalo; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Gurrera, Joan; Sanz Ramos, Marcos (Springer, 2020)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The following paper explain a new methodology for an early warning system for rain events at a campsite over the Pyrenees in Lleida in the Northeast of Spain. The typology of rainfall events is well known in this part of ...
  • New tools to assess the suitability of physical habitat (SPH) and the weighted usable area (WUA) for fishes 

    Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Vericat Querol, Damià; Palau Ibars, Antoni (Springer, 2020)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The assessment of the Suitability of Physical Habitat (SPH) and the Weighted Usable Area (WUA) for fishes has been traditionally performed by means of simple habitat models based on experimental campaigns. In parallel with ...
  • Simulating the hydrodynamics of sewer-inlets using a 2D-SWE based model 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (Springer, 2020)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Sewer inlets are one of the most important elements for avoiding floods in urban areas, capturing runoff and introducing into the sewer system. Traditionally the inlets have been designed by resistance criteria, without ...
  • Element boundary terms in reduced order models for flow problems: domain decomposition and adaptive coarse mesh hyper-reduction 

    Reyes, Ricardo; Codina, Ramon (2020-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper we present a finite-element based reduced order model and, in particular, we consider two aspects related to the introduction of inter-element boundary terms in the formulation. The first is a domain decomposition ...
  • Combining fiber optic DTS, cross-hole ERT and time-lapse induction logging to characterize and monitor a coastal aquifer 

    Folch Sancho, Albert; Val Alonso, Laura del; Luquot, Linda; Martínez Pérez, Laura; Bellmunt, F.; Le Lay, Hugo; Rodellas, Valentí; Ferrer Ramos, Nuria; Palacios Pierluissi, Andrea Viviana; Marazuela Calvo, Miguel Ángel; Diego Feliu, Marc; Pool Ramírez, Maria; Goyetche, Tybaud; Ledo, J.; Pezard, Philipe; Bour, Olivier; Queralt, P.; Marcuello, A.; Garcia Orellana, Jordi; Saaltink, Maarten Willem; Vázquez Suñé, Enric; Carrera Ramírez, Jesús (Elsevier, 2020-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The characterization of saline water intrusion (SWI) and its hydrodynamics is a key issue to understand submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) and manage groundwater resources in coastal areas. To test and compare different ...
