E-prints UPC cobreix dues finalitats: per una banda, és el dipòsit institucional de la UPC que recull els articles de revista, les comunicacions de congrés i els reports de recerca generats en les activitats de recerca del personal docent i investigador de la universitat; per l'altra, és una eina que permet accelerar la producció científica, allotjant versions de documents prèvies a la publicació en una revista o a les actes d’un congrés.

L'objectiu d'E-Prints UPC és augmentar la visibilitat i l'accessibilitat d'aquests documents, així com garantir la seva preservació. Els membres de la UPC interessats a dipositar documents en accés obert, si us plau contacteu amb Info.Biblioteques@upc.edu

E-prints has two aims: it is the UPC's institutional repository, collecting journal articles, conference papers and research reports generated in the research activities of the University's teaching and research staff; and it is a tool for accelerating scientific output by hosting pre-print versions of journal articles and conference papers.

The aim of UPC E-prints is to increase the visibility and accessibility of these documents and ensure their preservation. Members of the UPC who are interested in depositing documents in open-access form should contact Info.Biblioteques@upc.edu

    It is well known that the solution by means of iterative methods of very ill-conditioned systems leads to very poor convergence rates. In this context, preconditioning becomes crucial in order to modify the spectrum of the ...
  • Simulation of fluid-structure interaction and impact force on a reed valve 

    Castrillo Green, Pablo; Schillaci, Eugenio; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim (2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The cyclic impact force between a reed valve and the seat plate is the main reason of the valve failure in many thermo-technical devices as compressors, engines, etc. According to experimental observations the latter is ...
  • Experimental and numerical analysis of reed valve movement in an impact fatigue test system and reciprocating compressors
