    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 ...
  • Simulation of full-scale rockfall tests with a fragmentation model 

    Matas Casado, Gerard; Lantada, Nieves; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Gili Ripoll, José Antonio; Ruiz Carulla, Roger; Prades Valls, Albert (2020-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, we present the upgraded version of RockGIS, a stochastic program for the numerical simulation of rockfalls and their fragmentation, based on a fractal model. The code has been improved to account for a range ...
  • A persistent scatterer interferometry procedure based on stable areas to filter the atmospheric component 

    Crosetto, Michele; Devanthéry Arasa, Nuria Virginia; Montserrat, Oriol; Barra, Anna; Cuevas Gonzalez, Maria; Mróz, Marek; Botey Bassols, Joan; Vázquez Suñé, Enric; Crippa, B. (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper describes a Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) procedure to monitor the land deformation in an urban area induced by aquifer dewatering and the consequent drawdown of the water table. The procedure, based ...
  • Particle density estimation with grid-projected and boundary-corrected adaptive kernels 

    Solé Marí, Guillem; Bolster, Diogo; Fernández García, Daniel; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier (Elsevier, 2019-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The reconstruction of smooth density fields from scattered data points is a procedure that has multiple applications in a variety of disciplines, including Lagrangian (particle-based) models of solute transport in fluids. ...
  • Modelling acid attack of oilwell cement exposed to carbonated brine: effect of specimen geometry on experimental results 

    Barandiarán Villegas, Lucía Belén; Liaudat, Joaquín; López Garello, Carlos María; Carol, Ignacio (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In recent years, the authors and co-workers have developed a diffusion-reaction model for the degradation process of oilwell cements exposed to carbonated brines in the context of CO2 capture and storage in abandoned oil ...
  • Viscoplastic constitutive models for zero-thickness interface elements, formulation and applications 

    Jaqués Adell, Irene; Carol, Ignacio (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An energy-based work-softening visco-plastic model for zero-thickness interface elements has been developed as an extension of an existing elastic-perfectly-viscoplastic formulation. In the inviscid limit the model also ...
  • Coupled THM analysis of long-term anisotropic convergence in the full-scale micro tunnel excavated in the Callovo-Oxfordian argillite 

    Tourchi, Saeed; Vaunat, Jean; Gens Solé, Antonio; Vu, M. N.; Bumbieler, F. (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The main purpose of this paper is to analyse the convergence measurements of the ALC1604 in situ heating test carried out in the Callovo-Oxfordian claystone formation (COx) in the Meuse/Haute-Marne underground research ...
  • A zero-thickness mortar / Interface formulation with application to fracture mechanics 

    Francisco Sans, Miguel de; Carol, Ignacio (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A zero-thickness mortar/interface element formulation is briefly described and demonstrated. This element may be considered as an extension of traditional zero-thickness interface element, in order to represent material ...
  • Thermo-hydro-mechanical simulation of a full-scale steel-lined micro-tunnel excavated in the Callovo-Oxfordian claystone 

    Tourchi, Saeed; Vaunat, Jean; Gens Solé, Antonio; Vu, Minh-Ngoc; Bumbieler, F. (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The paper presents an interpretation of the full-scale ALC1604 in situ heating test carried out in Callovo-Oxfordian claystone (COx) in the Meuse/Haute-Marne underground research laboratory (MHM URL). The MHM URL is a ...
  • What are the main factors influencing the presence of faecal bacteria pollution in groundwater systems in developing countries? 

    Ferrer Ramos, Nuria; Folch Sancho, Albert; Masó Ferrerons, Guillem; Sánchez, Silvia; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier (2020-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Groundwater is the major source of drinking water in most rural areas in developing countries. This resource is threatened by the potential presence of faecal bacteria coming from a variety of sources and pollution paths, ...
  • Coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical behaviour of a deep clay 

    Sau Valenzuela, Núria; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Van Baelen, H (EDP Sciences, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An experimental study on Ypresian clays –one of the potential deep formations in Belgium for the geological disposal of heat-emitting radioactive waste– was undertaken to systematically study its thermal properties and ...
  • Multi-scale effects on the hydraulic behaviour of a root-permeated and compacted soil 

    Fraccica, Alessandro; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Fourcaud, Thierry (EDP Sciences, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    While roots have been generally proved to be beneficial to soil mechanical behaviour, different and counterposed results have been found when investigating their effects on soil hydraulic response. Roots affect the ...
