  • Multiscale proper generalized decomposition based on the partition of unity 

    Ibáñez Pinillo, Rubén; Ammar, Amine; Cueto Prendes, Elias; Huerta, Antonio; Duval, Jean Louis; Chinesta, Francisco (John Wiley & sons, 2019-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Solutions of partial differential equations could exhibit a multiscale behavior. Standard discretization techniques are constraints to mesh up to the finest scale to predict accurately the response of the system. The ...
  • Moore–Gibson–Thompson thermoelasticity 

    Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2019-07-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    We consider a thermoelastic theory where the heat conduction is escribed by the Moore–Gibson–Thompson equation. In fact, this equation can be obtained after the introduction of a relaxation parameter in the Green–Naghdi ...
  • Boron removal from aqueous solutions by using a novel alginate-based sorbent: Comparison with Al2O3 particles 

    Demey Cedeño, Hary; Barrón Zambrano, Jesús Alberto; Mhadhbi, Takoua; Miloudi, Hafida; Yang, Zhen; Ruiz Planas, Montserrat; Sastre Requena, Ana María (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Boron removal was evaluated in the present work by using calcium alginate beads (CA) and a novel composite based on alginate–alumina (CAAl) as sorbents in a batch system. The effects of different parameters such as pH, ...
  • Out-of-field generic ML training with in-field specific adaptation to facilitate ML deployments 

    Shariati, Mohammad Behnam; Ruiz Ramírez, Marc; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A two-phase strategy to facilitate ML algorithm deployment in real networks is demonstrated: out-of-field training uses data from simulation and testbed experiments with generic equipment whereas in-field adaptation is ...
  • Optical signal tracking for robust PAM4 deployment in filterless metro network scenarios 

    Shariati, Mohammad Behnam; Fresi, Francesco; Ruiz Ramírez, Marc; Cugini, Filippo; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Highly accurate and reliable optical signal tracking is proposed that estimates sub-GHz laser drift failures by analyzing spectra acquired by cost-effective coarse-granular OSAs. Its application on PAM4 systems in filterless ...
  • Out-of-equilibrium mechanochemistry and self-organization of fluid membranes interacting with curved proteins 

    Tozzi, Caterina; Walani, Nikhil; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (2019-09-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    The function of biological membranes is controlled by the interaction of the fluid lipid bilayer with various proteins, some of which induce or react to curvature. These proteins can preferentially bind or diffuse towards ...
  • Self-learning approaches for real optical networks 

    Ruiz Ramírez, Marc; Boitier, Fabien; Layec, Patricia; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Self-learning approaches to facilitate the deployment of ML algorithms in real networks are analyzed and their performance evaluated through an illustrative use case. Results show large benefits of collective self-learning ...
  • Fault management based on machine learning 

    Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo; Rafique, Danish (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Machine Learning (ML) brings many benefits for network operation. In this paper, basic ML concepts and its integration into existing network control and management planes are reviewed. Case studies covering fault management ...
  • Converse flexoelectricity yields large piezoresponse force microscopy signals in non-piezoelectric materials 

    Abdollahi Hosnijeh, Amir; Domingo, Neus; Arias Vicente, Irene; Catalan, Gustau (2019-03-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    Converse flexoelectricity is a mechanical stress induced by an electric polarization gradient. It can appear in any material, irrespective of symmetry, whenever there is an inhomogeneous electric field distribution. This ...
  • Size-degree trade-offs for Sums-of-Squares and Positivstellensatz proofs 

    Atserias, Albert; Hakoniemi, Tuomas Antero (Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We show that if a system of degree-k polynomial constraints on n Boolean variables has a Sums-of-Squares (SOS) proof of unsatisfiability with at most s many monomials, then it also has one whose degree is of the order of ...
  • Mechanotransmission of haemodynamic forces by the endothelial glycocalyx in a full-scale arterial model 

    Sáez Viñas, Pablo; Gallo, Diego; Morbiducci, Umberto (2019-06-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The glycocalyx has been identified as a key mechano-sensor of the shear forces exerted by streaming blood onto the vascular endothelial lining. Although the biochemical reaction to the blood flow has been extensively ...
  • Strategies for surface modification with Ag-shaped nanoparticles: electrocatalytic enhancement of screen-printed electrodes for the detection of heavy metals 

    Torres Rivero Andrade, Karina Victoria Alejandra; Torralba Cadena, Lourdes; Espriu Gascon, Alexandra; Casas Pons, Ignasi; Bastos Arrieta, Julio Alonso; Florido Pérez, Antonio (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-09-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Screen-printed carbon nanofiber electrodes (SPCNFEs) represent an alternative with great acceptance due to their results, as well as their low impact on the environment. In order to improve their performance, in the present ...
