    • Flood depth-damage curves for Spanish urban areas 

      Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo; Forero Ortiz, Edwar Andres; Guerrero Hidalga, María; Castan, Salvador; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (2020-04)
      Article
      Open Access
      Depth‒damage curves, also known as vulnerability curves, are an essential element of many flood damage models. A relevant characteristic of these curves is their applicability limitations in space and time. The reader will ...
    • Flexural stiffness reduction for stainless steel SHS and RHS members prone to local buckling 

      Shen, Yanfei; Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio (2020-10)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In this paper, flexural stiffness reduction factor formulations, applicable to stainless steel members with compact cold-formed square and rectangular hollow section (SHS and RHS), are extended to account for local buckling ...
    • Development of VR/AR applications for experimental tests of beams, columns, and frames 

      Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio; Claure, Fabiola; Coss Henning, Oscar de (2020-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper depicts a set of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications conceived for the enrichment of laboratory experiences within the field of structural engineering. The experimental program corresponds ...
    • GPR spectra for monitoring asphalt pavements 

      Pedret Rodés, Josep; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a prospecting method frequently used in monitoring asphalt pavements, especially as an optimal complement to the defection test that is commonly used for determining the structural condition ...
    • An accurate nonlocal bonded discrete element method for nonlinear analysis of solids: application to concrete fracture tests 

      Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Latorre Sánchez, Juan Salvador; Arrufat Garcia, Ferran; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (Springer, 2020-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      We present a numerical procedure for elastic and nonlinear analysis (including fracture situations) of solid materials and structures using the discrete element method. It can be applied to strongly cohesive frictional ...

    • A plastic-damage model for concrete 

      Lubliner, Jacob; Oliver Olivella, Xavier; Oller Martínez, Sergio Horacio; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (1989)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In this paper a constitutive model based on an internal variable-formulation of plasticity theory for the non-linear analysis of concrete is presented. The model uses a new yield criterion which matches experimental data ...
    • A consistent characteristic length for smeared cracking models 

      Oliver Olivella, Xavier (John Wiley & sons, 1989-02)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A numerical scheme for crack modelling by means of continuous displacement fields is presented. In two-dimensional problems a crack is modelled as a limiting case of two singular lines (with continuous displacements, but ...
