  • Adaptive phase-field modeling of fracture propagation in bi-layered materials 

    Khan, Salman; Muixí Ballonga, Alba; Annavarapu, Chandrasekhar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2023-11-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We study fracture propagation in bi-layered materials using an adaptive phase-field method. The method combines a phase-field representation of fracture with spatial adaptivity to provide mesh refinement in the smeared ...
  • Numerical modelling of opposing subduction in the Western Mediterranean 

    Peral Millán, Mireia; Fernandez Ortiga, Manel; Vergés Masip, Jaume; Zlotnik, Sergio; Jimenez Munt, Ivone (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2023)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The geodynamic evolution of the Western Mediterranean related to the closure of the LigurianTethys ocean is not yet fully resolved. We present a new 3D numerical model of double subduction with opposite polarities fostered ...
  • Dynamic topography and satellite gravity data joint inversion using Reduced Order Models (DYGIRO) 

    Ortega Gelabert, Olga; Fullea, Javier; Arnaiz Rodríguez, Mariano S.; Zlotnik, Sergio (2023)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Geophysical observables, such as surface elevation, gravity field anomalies, seismic data, surface heat flow, etc, are essential pieces of information used to make inferences about the structure and dynamics of the Earth’s ...
  • Airlines' network analysis on an air-rail multimodal system 

    Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Gurtner, Gérald; Bolic, Tatjana; Trapote Barreira, César; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de (2024-03-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article explores the potential impact of short-haul flight bans in Spain. We build the rail and flight network for the Spanish peninsula, merging openly available ADS-B-based data, for the reconstruction of air schedules ...
  • Airlines network analysis on an air-rail multimodal system 

    Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Gurtner, Gérald; Bolic, Tatjana; Trapote Barreira, César; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de (TU Delft, 2023)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The network is a key asset for airlines because it defines their market power and constrains resource 12 allocation. In a hub and spoke network, short flights feed the airlines’ hubs to distribute passengers. 13 This network ...
  • A shifted boundary method based on extension operators 

    Zorrilla Martínez, Rubén; Rossi, Riccardo; Scovazzi, Guglielmo; Canuto, Claudio; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (Elsevier, 2024-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    We consider formulations of the Shifted Boundary Method based on extrapolation operators other than the Taylor expansion. In the specific case of the Poisson equation, we prove that this approach is stable, provided some ...
  • Thermally driven winds on Mars: a review and a slope effect numerical study 

    Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Arias Calderón, Santiago; Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio (John Wiley & sons, 2024-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Regional and local thermally driven winds are planetary boundary layer phenomena frequently observed on Mars over sloping and flat regions, when diurnal surface temperature variations are significant and large-scale winds ...
  • Transversal flexoelectric coefficient for nanostructures at finite deformations from first principles 

    Codony Gisbert, David; Arias Vicente, Irene; Suryanarayana, Phanish (American Physical Society (APS), 2021-03-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a novel formulation for calculating the transversal flexoelectric coefficient of nanostructures at finite deformations from first principles. Specifically, we introduce the concept of radial polarization to make ...
  • Finite element method for sustainable and resilient structures made with bar and fiber -reinforced EAFS concrete 

    Garcia Llona, Aratz; Piñero Santiago, Ignacio; Ortega López, Vanesa; Santamaría León, Amaia; Aguirre Font, Miquel (Elsevier, 2024-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Structural engineers have to address the climate change challenge by designing sustainable and resilient structures. At this juncture, Electric Arc Furnace Slags (EAFS), a steel-industry waste, are used in replacement of ...
  • Switchable tribology of ferroelectrics 

    Cho, Seongwoo; Gaponenko, Iaroslav; Cordero Edwards, Kumara; Barceló Mercader, Jordi; Arias Vicente, Irene; Kim, Daeho; Lichtensteiger, Céline; Yeom, Jiwon; Musy, Loïc; Kim, Hyunji; Han, Seung Min; Catalan, Gustau; Paruch, Patrycja; Hong, Seungbum (2024-01-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Switchable tribological properties of ferroelectrics offer an alternative route to visualize and control ferroelectric domains. Here, we observe the switchable friction and wear behavior of ferroelectrics using a nanoscale ...
  • Adaptive phase-field modeling of fracture in orthotropic composites 

    Ishank, Jain; Muixí Ballonga, Alba; Annavarapu, Chandrasekhar; Mulay, Shantanu; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2023-11-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An adaptive phase-field method is developed and applied to model fracture propagation in orthotropic composites. The proposed approach extends the work of Muixí et al. (2020) to orthotropic composites through following ...
  • Effect of foot stato-dynamic disorders on hemodynamics of the lower limb using strain-gauge plethysmography 

    Tsimba, Laure; Rastel, Didier; Dechandon, Emilie; Vincent, Patrick; Micholet, Céline; Chaigneau, Cyril; Avril, Stephane; Aguirre Font, Miquel (Elsevier, 2023-11)
    Article
