  • Slingshot resonance for ocean wave energy conversion 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (Springer, 2019-06-13)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The slingshot effect and its application to converting ocean wave energy are discussed. It is shown that, owing to the large inertia transported by ocean waves and their periodicity, the slingshot effect can result in the ...

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-05-21)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work, consideration is given for a novel technology based on the use of compliant surfaces (membranes) for hydrokinetic energy conversion (HEC) from residual waters where the use of traditional turbines is either ...
  • Solar thermal panels for small-medium scale air cleaners in major cities 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-03-01)
    Article

    Air quality in major cities is reaching worrisome levels across the planet owing to large-scale industrialization. As a result, air purification systems are becoming a fertile and emerging field for research. Here, ...
  • The Extractable hydrokinetic power from an oscillating membrane-based harvester 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (Elsevier, 2019-01-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    The extractable hydrokinetic power from an oscillating membrane in standing motion and induced by a water flow and its possible significance with regard energy harvesting is discussed. The main attractiveness of such an ...
  • On thermocapillary rings from radioactive particles suspended at the surface of liquids 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-07)
    Article

    Thermocapillary motion and its significance with regard the thermal behavior of heat sources and with particular reference to radioactive particles suspended in fluids is discussed. It shown that because the heat source, ...
  • Sensor placement for classifier-based leak localization in water distribution networks using hybrid feature selection 

    Soldevila Coma, Adrià; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Pergamon Press, 2018-01-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a sensor placement approach for classifier-based leak localization in water distribution networks. The proposed method is based on a hybrid feature selection algorithm that combines the use of a filter ...
  • Magnetic Mars dust-removal technology 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (springer-Verlag, 2019-02-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Environmental data recorded by the Mars exploration rovers show that the martian dust is magnetic containing mostly the strong magnetic mineral magnetite ( Fe3O4 ). On the other hand, it is known that dust settling onto ...
  • Sandbraking. A technique for landing large payloads on Mars using the sands of Phobos 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The basis of a novel braking technique by using the Phobos sands for landing large payloads on Mars is outlined. Here consideration is given to the utilization of the Phobos or Deimos regolith as material for aerobraking ...
  • Pumps condition assessment in water distribution networks 

    Soldevila, Adrià; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Meseguer Amela, Jordi; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a method for the detection of faults in electrical pumps. The method relies on the computation of two features, the pump efficiency and the hydraulic balance, that present reference values during healthy ...
  • Robust fault diagnosis of non-linear systems using interval constraint satisfaction and analytical redundancy relations 

    Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Escobet Canal, Teresa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper, the robust fault diagnosis pro- blem for non-linear systems considering both bounded parametric modelling errors and noises is addressed using parity equation based Analytical Redundancy Relations and Interval ...
