    Air quality in major cities is reaching worrisome levels across the planet owing to large-scale industrialization. As a result, air purification systems are becoming a fertile and emerging field for research. Here, ...
  • Labeling strategy for evaluating the performance of thin asphalt wearing courses 

    García Gil, Lívia; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Traditional design procedures of asphalt mixtures are based on volumetric parameters and the compliance with the mechanical performance, while functional properties receive less attention. Additionally, even though the ...

    The market penetration of Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) is escalating due to their energy saving and environmental benefits. In order to address PEVs impact on the electric networks, the aggregators need to accurately ...
  • Maximum-principle preserving space–time isogeometric analysis 

    Bonilla de Toro, Jesús; Badia, Santiago (2019-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work we propose a nonlinear stabilization technique for convection–diffusion–reaction and pure transport problems discretized with space–time isogeometric analysis. The stabilization is based on a graph-theoretic ...
