    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) in bridges is an important field, which implements increasingly innovative damage detection strategies for both theoretical developments and laboratory-scale implementations. However, is ...
  • Mooring fatigue verification of the WindCrete for a 15 MW wind turbine 

    Trubat Casal, Pau; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel; Arramounet, Valentin; Mahfouz, Mohammad Youssef (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2021)
    Conference report

    LCOE reduction in FOWTs is heading to larger wind turbines in order to increase power production and capacity. NREL and DTU have recently developed a 15MW reference wind turbine, which can be used to validate the platform ...
  • A combined kernel-PCA with clustering analysis for bridge damage detection under changing environmental conditions 

    Delgadillo Ayala, Rick Milton; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Damage caused in bridges can be hidden by the service conditions mainly due to environment effects as temperature and traffic loading. The literature review indicates that the majority of investigations are limited since ...
  • 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

    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 ...
  • WASH your data off: navigating statistical uncertainty in compositional data analysis 

    Ezbakhe, Fatine; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    International monitoring of access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is essential to inform policy planning, implementation and delivery of services. The Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and ...
  • Simulating the hydrodynamics of sewer-grates using a 2D-hydraulic model 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (Société Hydrotechnique de France (SHF), 2019)

    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 ...
  • New tools to assess the Suitability Physical Habitat (SPH) and the Weighted Usable Area (WUA) for fishes 

    Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Vericat Querol, Damià; Palau Ibars, Antoni (Société Hydrotechnique de France (SHF), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    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 ...
