  • Experimental characterization and two-dimensional hydraulic-hydrologic modelling of the infiltration process through permeable pavements 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Olivares Cerpa, Gonzalo; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest (2022-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Permeable pavements are a common solution for wearing course layers in roads and urban areas. They are composed by highly porous materials with permeability several orders of magnitude above of the natural terrain. This ...
  • City logistics: challenges and opportunities for technology providers 

    Bachofner, Monika; Lemardele, Clement; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel; Pagès Giralt, Laia (Elsevier, 2022-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Current last-mile logistics operations are inefficient. The economic competitiveness of logistics service providers is affected by distinct factors, such as the limited time windows they are given to deliver freight in ...
  • Inferring the connectivity of coupled chaotic oscillators using Kalman filtering 

    Forero Ortiz, Edwar Andres; Tirabassi, Giulio; Masoller Alonso, Cristina; Pons Rivero, Antonio Javier (Nature, 2021-11-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    Inferring the interactions between coupled oscillators is a significant open problem in complexity science, with multiple interdisciplinary applications. While the Kalman filter (KF) technique is a well-known tool, widely ...
  • Phase distribution and properties identification of heterogeneous materials: a data-driven approach 

    Valdés Alonzo, Gabriel Rolando; Binetruy, Christophe; Eck, Benedikt; García González, Alberto; Leygue, Adrien (2022-02-15)
    Article

    This paper presents a new methodology to extend the Data-Driven Identification (DDI) to heterogeneous samples made of multiple elastic materials. By using the Correspondence Analysis (CA) technique to post-process DDI, we ...
  • Prevention of occupational risks in geotechnical drilling works through virtual reality training 

    Fernández, Aitor; Muñoz La Rivera, Felipe; Mora Serrano, Javier (WIT Press, 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The architecture, engineering, construction and operations industry has high accident rates as a result of characteristics of the construction site and work activities, the heavy machinery used and a lack of safety culture. ...
  • A transonic potential solver with an embedded wake approach using multivalued finite elements 

    López Canalejo, Iñigo; Baez Jones, Eloisa; Núñez Corbacho, Marc; Zorrilla Martínez, Rubén; Rossi, Riccardo; Bletzinger, Kai Uwe; Wüchner, Roland (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    A potential transonic solver with an embedded wake is presented. The flow outside of attached boundary layers of streamlined bodies flying at high Reynold numbers can be assumed to be irrotational and isentropic. This ...
  • Traffic accident severity analysis in Barcelona using a binary probit and CHAID tree 

    Aiash, Ahmad; Robusté Antón, Francesc (2021-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Traffic accidents are still wide causation for fatalities around the globe. The set of alarm for this cause of deaths is still on, since the number of fatalities is still representing an enormous issue and a challenge for ...
  • Geometrical discretisations for unfitted finite elements on explicit boundary representations 

    Badia, Santiago; Martorell Pol, Pere Antoni; Verdugo Rojano, Francesc (2022-07-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Unfitted (also known as embedded or immersed) finite element approximations of partial differential equations are very attractive because they have much lower geometrical requirements than standard body-fitted formulations. ...
  • Evaluation of transport events with the use of big data, artificial intelligence and augmented reality techniques 

    Pérez Díez, Fernando; Cabrerizo Sinca, Julià; Roche Vallès, David; Campos Cacheda, Jose Magin (Elsevier, 2021-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    The phenomenon of "smart cities" generalizes the use of Information and Communication Technologies. The generation and use of data to manage mobility is a challenge that many cities are betting on and investing in. Through ...
  • Criteria for optimizing a road network 

    Regalado López, Francisco Javier; Campos Cacheda, Jose Magin; Saurí Marchán, Sergi (Elsevier, 2021-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is the most widely used tool for appraisal of transportation infrastructure projects, but there isn’t generalize guidelines about its implementation, there can be found different approaches that ...
