    Gili Ripoll, José Antonio; Ruiz Carulla, Roger; Matas Casado, Gerard; Moya Sánchez, José; Prades Valls, Albert; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Lantada, Nieves; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Buill Pozuelo, Felipe; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Martínez Bofill, Joan; Salo Salgado, Lluis; Mavrouli, Olga Christina (2022-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Fragmentation is a common feature of rockfall that exerts a strong control on the trajectories of the generated blocks, the impact energies, and the runout. In this paper, we present a set of four real-scale rockfall tests ...
  • Capturing rockfall kinematic and fragmentation parameters using high-speed camera system 

    Prades Valls, Albert; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Lantada, Nieves; Matas Casado, Gerard; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo (2022-06-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a procedure for tracking rockfall trajectories and extracting kinematic parameters from both the impacts and the resultant fragments. A set of full scale rockfall experiments was performed in a quarry ...
  • Spatial data infrastructure (SDI) for inventory rockfalls with fragmentation information 

    Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Lantada, Nieves; Martínez llario, Jose (2022-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The fragmentation phenomenon has a significant effect on rockfall risk assessment. This information is difficult to obtain, but it is key to improving rockfall modelling. For this reason, the RockModels team has gathered ...

    It is widely accepted that future environmental changes will affect rainfall-induced shallow slides in high-mountain areas. In this study, the Val d’Aran region located in the Central Pyrenees was selected to analyze and ...
  • Incertidumbre en el análisis multitemporal en terrenos escarpados debido al uso de MDE 

    Rodríguez Jordana, Juan; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Buill Pozuelo, Felipe (2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    La calidad de los modelos digitales de elevación (MDE) es fundamental en geomorfología, especialmente en los estudios multitemporales en los que se quiere reconocer los cambios de relieve mediante el cálculo del volumen ...
  • Comparative analysis of a new assessment of the seismic risk of residential buildings of two districts of Barcelona 

    Aguilar Meléndez, Armando; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro; Monterrubio Velasco, Marisol; Puente Álvarez, Josep de la; Lantada, Nieves (2022)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    There are personal and institutional decisions that can increase the seismic resilience of the buildings in a city. However, some of these decisions are possible if we have basic knowledge of buildings’ seismic risk. The ...

    Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Martinez-Molina, Antonio; Casquero-Modrego, Núria; Yong Suk, Jae (2021-07-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    Purpose: the importance of sustainability in architecture currently necessitates the integration of innovative teaching strategies on the subject into architecture programs. This study aims to introduce and examine peer ...
  • A new morphodynamic instability associated with cross-shore transport in the nearshore 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Puig i Polo, Càrol (2021-07-16)
    Article
    Open Access
    The existing theory for shore-transverse rhythmic sand bars relies on morphodynamic instabilities involving the wave-driven longshore current and rip currents. Intriguingly, transverse finger bars are common on coasts with ...
  • Past, present and future monitoring at the Vallcebre landslide (Eastern Pyrenees, Spain) 

    Gili Ripoll, José Antonio; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Moya Sánchez, José; Crosetto, Michele; Montserrat, Oriol (2021-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Works carried out to monitor the displacements of the Vallcebre landslide (Pyrenees range, NE of Spain) since 1987 are presented. The landslide, which extends over an area of about 0.8 km2 and affects more than 20 × 106 ...
  • TLS measurements of initial imperfections of steel frames for structural analysis within BIM-enabled platforms
