  • Stress relaxation in epithelial monolayers is controlled by the actomyosin cortex 

    Khalilgharibi, Nargess; Fouchard, Jonathan; Asadipour, Nina; Barrientos, Ricardo; Duda, Maria; Bonfanti, Alessandra; Yonis, Amina; Harris, Andrew; Mosaffa, Payman; Fujita, Yasuyuki; Kabla, Alexandre; Mao, Yanlan; Baum, Buzz; Muñoz Romero, José; Miodownik, Mark; Charras, Guillaume (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Epithelial monolayers are one-cell thick tissue sheets that separate internal and external environments. As part of their function, they have to withstand extrinsic mechanical stresses applied at high strain rates. However, ...
  • Planar differential growth rates initiate precise fold positions in complex epithelia 

    Muñoz Romero, José (2019-11-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Tissue folding is a fundamental process that shapes epithelia into complex 3D organs. The initial positioning of folds is the foundation for the emergence of correct tissue morphology. Mechanisms forming individual folds ...
  • Computational modeling of epithelial wound healing: Short and long term chemo-mechanical mechanisms 

    Roldan, Lisandro; Muñoz Romero, José; Sáez Viñas, Pablo (2019-06-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    During the lifetime of all living multicellular organisms, wounds in their tissues are frequently observed. Thecapability of closing those gaps is fundamental for a healthy development. If done deficiently, many diseasesmay ...
  • A new 3D equilibrated residual method improving accuracy and efficiency of flux-free error estimates 

    Parés Mariné, Núria; Díez, Pedro (John Wiley & sons, 2019-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper presents a novel strategy providing fully computable upper bounds for the energy norm of the error in the context of three-dimensional linear finite element approximations of the reaction-diffusion equation. The ...
  • Flight and passenger efficiency-fairness trade-off for ATFM delay assignment 

    Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Delgado Muñoz, Luis (2020-03-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper studies trade-offs between efficiency (performance) and fairness (equity), when assigning ATFM delay pre-tactically (on-ground at origin airport) due to reduced airport capacity at destination. Delay is assigned ...
  • On the modeling of patient-specific transcatheter aortic valve replacement: a fluid–structure interaction approach 

    Luraghi, Giulia; Migliavacca, Francesco; García González, Alberto; Chiastra, Claudio; Rossi, Alexia; Cao, Davide; Stefanini, Giulio; Rodríguez Matas, José Félix (Springer, 2019-09-01)
    Article

    Purpose Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive treatment for high-risk patients with aortic diseases. Despite its increasing use, many influential factors are still to be understood and require ...
  • Advanced methodology for wind resource assessment near hydroelectric dams in complex mountainous areas 

    Yang, Lin; Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de (2019-11-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    To increase renewable energy generation in some hydroelectric dams, a solution consisting in installing wind turbines close to dams is proposed. Indeed, dam surroundings are prone to benefit from wind speed-up effect, extra ...
  • Combined molecular/continuum modeling reveals the role of friction during fast unfolding of coiled-coil proteins 

    Torres Sánchez, Alejandro; Vanegas, Juan Manuel; Purohit, Prashant K.; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (2019-05-30)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Coiled-coils are filamentous proteins that form the basic building block of important force-bearing cellular elements, such as intermediate filaments and myosin motors. In addition to their biological importance, coiled-coil ...
  • A continuous-discontinuous model for crack branching 

    Tamayo Mas, Elena; Feliu Fabà, Jordi; Casado Antolín, Montserrat; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (John Wiley & sons, 2019-10-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A new continuous-discontinuous model for fracture that accounts for crack branching in a natural manner is presented. It combines a gradient-enhanced damage model based on nonlocal displacements to describe diffuse cracks ...
  • Transmission Loss formulas for junctions taking into accountin-plane waves 

    Poblet-Puig, Jordi (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the transmission of vibrations through structural junctions at high frequencies,the distribution of energy between wave types con suffer important variations. It means, for example, that incoming energy concentrated in ...
  • Application of inverse SEA models to obtain the Coupling LossFactor in structural junctions from numerical simulations 

    Poblet-Puig, Jordi; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An inverse SEA procedure that mimics the Experimental SEA (ESEA) is used in order to obtain the Coupling Loss Factor (CLF) of structural junctions. The main differences with respect to ESEA are that: 1) the subsystem ...
  • Multiscale proper generalized decomposition based on the partition of unity 

    Ibáñez Pinillo, Rubén; Ammar, Amine; Cueto Prendes, Elias; Huerta, Antonio; Duval, Jean Louis; Chinesta, Francisco (John Wiley & sons, 2019-11-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Solutions of partial differential equations could exhibit a multiscale behavior. Standard discretization techniques are constraints to mesh up to the finest scale to predict accurately the response of the system. The ...
