  • Concerning the role of cigarette smoke particles on aerosolization and transport of COVID-19 through face masks 

    Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las; Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier (2021-04-19)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this note the role of cigarette smoking in the aerosolization and transport of COVID-19 through face masks is considered. On one hand, it is known that COVID-19 spreads primarily through water droplets generated ...
  • Film boiling heat transfer from micro heat sinks driven by Bénard-Marangoni convection 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2021-01-26)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Bénard-Marangoni convection and its significance with regard to film boiling heat transfer from micro heat sinks is discussed. In recent works cooling performance of micro heat sinks has been studied showing that two-phase ...
  • Magnetic hyperthermia for particle image velocimetry (MH-PIV) 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2021-01-26)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this work a novel approach is investigated for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) which is a technique used as optical method for instantaneous flow visualization. So far traditional PIV is based in the injection of small ...
  • Hornet Vespa velutina selective capture by air entrainmen 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-06-09)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In a previous report, [1], the possibility for selective capture of Vespa velutina by the use of an air cannon was discussed. In this second report, we address the alternative possibility for selective capture of ...
  • A method for selective hornet Vespa Velutina baited traps using a compressed air cannon 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-05-28)
    External research report
    Open Access
    The efficiency and selectiveness of baited traps to control the invasive hornet Vespa velutina has been often questioned. Recent studies show that capture of Vespa velutina accounted for less than 1% of all captures, ...
  • Hybrid linear sewer network model 

    Joseph Duran, Bernat; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2013)
    External research report
    Open Access
    This technical report presents a novel control-oriented hybrid linear sewer network model. It also provides the mathematical details of the Mixed Logical Dynamic (MLD) systems reformulation of the system equations to turn ...
