  • The extraction of urbanized areas through images of high resolution nighttime lights 

    Arellano Ramos, Blanca; Roca Cladera, Josep (2020-08-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    Satellite nocturnal images of the earth are a useful way to identify urbanisation. Nighttime lights have been used in a variety of scientific contributions, including studies on the identification of metropolitan areas as ...
  • Three-Dimensional Modelling for Cultural Heritage 

    Marques, Luis; Roca Cladera, Josep (IGI Global. Publisher of Timely Knowledge, 2021-04)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The creation of 3D models of urban elements is extremely relevant for urbanists constituting digital archives and being especially useful for enrich maps and databases or reconstruct and analyze objects/areas through time, ...
  • Application of conventional UAVs for the identification and classification of dense green spaces 

    Roca Cladera, Josep; Arellano Ramos, Blanca (IGI Global. Publisher of Timely Knowledge, 2021-04)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The objective of this chapter is to show the usefulness of conventional UAVs for the identification, inventory and classification of trees in the context of dense green spaces. The aim is to demonstrate the potential of ...
  • Stability index of linear random dynamical systems 

    Cima Mollet, Anna; Gasull Embid, Armengol; Mañosa Fernández, Víctor (2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    Given a homogeneous linear discrete or continuous dynamical system, its stability index is given by the dimension of the stable manifold of the zero solution. In particular, for the n dimensional case, the zero solution ...
  • Can nighttime imagery identify urban sprawl? 

    Arellano Ramos, Blanca; Roca Cladera, Josep (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Nighttime light imagery of the earth are a useful way to study the urbanization process. Satellite nocturnal images have been used to identify metropolitan areas as well as urban growth. However, the study of the extent ...
  • Urban landscapes and night time urban heat island 

    Arellano Ramos, Blanca; Roca Cladera, Josep (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The study of urban heat islands (UHI) is of great importance in the context of climate change (CC) and global warming. Cities accumulate heat in urban land covers as well as in built infrastructures, representing true ...

  • Laser surface texturing of PECM tools and the validation 

    Ernst, Andreas T.; Llanes Pitarch, Luis Miguel (Elsevier, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    As a non-contact unconventional machining approach, Electrochemical Machining (ECM), it is widely used for the machining of modern high-strength materials in the automotive, aerospace, or medical industry. ECM is also ...
  • Fabrication of interference textures on cemented carbides using nanosecond and femtosecond laser pulses 

    Llanes Pitarch, Luis Miguel (Elsevier, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Laser surface texturing is becoming popular in recent years, as its application in variant fields can bring in many benefits, such as to improve tribological performances of contact surfaces. As frontline engineering ...
  • 3D FIB/FESEM tomography of grinding-induced damage in WC-Co cemented carbides 

    Roa Rovira, Joan Josep; Llanes Pitarch, Luis Miguel (Elsevier, 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    WC-Co cemented carbides (hardmetals) represent the backbone materials for the tooling industry. In order to achieve particular tool geometries, diamond wheel grinding is a well-established method for machining hardmetals. ...
  • El ingenio (in)visible: Desde las pioneras en ingeniería hasta la actualidad

    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    En la actualidad, hombres y mujeres accedemos a la formación en general, y a la universitaria en particular, aparentemente en paridad. Pero no en todos los ámbitos. Las titulaciones del ámbito de la tecnología muestran ...
  • Simulation of COVID-19 propagation scenarios in the Madrid metropolitan area 

    Singh, David E.; Marinescu, Maria Cristina; Guzmán Merino, Miguel; Durán, Christian; Delgado Sanz, Concepción; Gómez Barroso, Diana; Carretero Pérez, Jesús (Frontiers Media SA, 2021-03-16)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents simulation results for different mitigation and confinement scenarios for the propagation of COVID-19 in the metropolitan area of Madrid. These scenarios were implemented and tested using EpiGraph, an ...
