  • Advanced analysis of in-service movements of vehicle closures 

    Fernández Osete, Ismael; Montané, Francesc Xavier; García, Juan Jesús; Maureso, Miquel (2004)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Closures (doors, hood, tailgate, etc.) are attached to the vehicle body by means of articulated elements that allow a high level of mobility. This may cause the poor vibration performance of the closure when exposed to ...

    In most of the investigations, the active noise barriers are configured placing both secondary sources and error sensors close to the edge of barriers, but it is unclear how far is this approach from the maximum theoretical ...
  • Investigate the effect of the active noise barrier on the reduction of noise level at the shadow zone and the neighboring building 

    Sohrabi, Shahin; Pàmies Gómez, Teresa; Romeu Garbí, Jordi (Institute of Noise Control Engineering, 2020)
    Conference report

    This paper presents a study of the efficiency of isolated concrete blocks as vibration mitigation measures for railway-induced ground-borne vibration problems in subway metro tunnels. The study is performed numerically, ...
  • A 2.5D FEM-BEM-MFS methodology for soil-structure interaction problems in layered half-spaces 

    Liravi, Hassan; Arcos Villamarín, Robert; Ghangale, Dhananjay; Romeu Garbí, Jordi (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a new prediction methodology to deal with longitudinally invariant soil-structure interaction problems in elastodynamics is presented. The method uses the finite-element method to model the structure, the ...
  • Freeform reversible embedding of suspended hydrogels for the manufacturing of biomedical applications

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) can be applied in different medical applications. Amongst all the AM technologies, DIW (Direct Ink Writing), FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) are some of the ...
  • Numerical modal analysis of a Kaplan turbine runner 

    Roig Bauzà, Rafel; Torre Rodríguez, Óscar de la; Jou Santacreu, Esteban; Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier (2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The aim of the research has been to investigate the change of dynamic behavior of a Kaplan turbine runner when submerged in still water. More specifically, the effects of the added mass on the modes of vibration have been ...
