  • Periodic spiking by a pair of ionic channels 

    Ramírez de la Piscina Millán, Laureano; Sancho Herrero, José María (2018-09-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Neuronal cells present periodic trains of localized voltage spikes involving a large amount of different ionic channels. A relevant question is whether this is a cooperative effect or it could also be an intrinsic property ...
  • Activity-aware HVAC power demand forecasting 

    Sala Cardoso, Enric; Delgado Prieto, Miquel; Kampouropoulos, Konstantinos; Romeral Martínez, José Luis (2018-07-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The forecasting of the thermal power demand is essential to support the development of advanced strategies for the management of local resources on the consumer side, such as heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) ...
  • Fixed-density boundary conditions in overdamped Langevin simulations of diffusion in channels 

    Ramírez de la Piscina Millán, Laureano (2018-07)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We consider the numerical integration of Langevin equations for particles in a channel, in the presence of boundary conditions fixing the concentration values at the ends. This kind of boundary condition appears for instance ...
  • Sliding mode analysis applied to improve the dynamical response of a spherical 3D wind sensor for Mars atmosphere 

    Atienza García, María Teresa; Kowalski, Lukasz; Gorreta Mariné, Sergio; Jimenez Serres, Vicente; Castañer Muñoz, Luis María; Domínguez Pumar, Manuel (2017-11-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The objective of this paper is to show how the structure of a thermal wind anemometer can be tuned to ensure a fast response when the sensor works in closed loop configuration (constant temperature operation). If the thermal ...
  • Bubble dynamics in turbulent duct flows: Lattice-Boltzmann simulations and drop tower experiments 

    Bitlloch, Pau; Ruiz Martí, Xavier; Ramírez de la Piscina Millán, Laureano; Casademunt Viader, Jaume (2018-06-23)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Lattice-Boltzmann simulations of a turbulent duct flow have been carried out to obtain trajectories of passive tracers in the conditions of a series of microgravity experiments of turbulent bubble suspensions. The statistics ...
  • Effect of dielectrophoretic force in the self-assembly process of electrosprayed nanoparticles 

    Castañer Muñoz, Luis María; Bermejo Broto, Sandra; Domínguez Pumar, Manuel (2017-03-31)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this work the effect of the dielectrophoretic force (DEP) in the self-assembly process of nanoparticles electrosprayed onto a substrate, is examined. DEP force is originated by the electric field created by the electrospray ...

    König, Caroline; Shaim, Ilmira; Vellido Alcacena, Alfredo; Romero Merino, Enrique; Alquézar Mancho, René; Giraldo Arjonilla, Jesús (Nature, 2018-07-05)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Biocuration in the omics sciences has become paramount, as research in these fields rapidly evolves towards increasingly data-dependent models. As a result, the management of web-accessible publicly-available databases ...
  • Three dimensional structures of flow through a square cylinder with an upstream splitter plate and for several velo city ratios 

    El Mansy, Reda; Sarwar, Wasim; Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria (2018)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In the present paper, three-dimensional Fluid structures and wake characteristics are evaluated for a square cylinder with an upstream splitter plate. The splitter plate divides the incoming flow in two streams, the ...
