  • Double multi-head attention for speaker verification 

    India Massana, Miquel Àngel; Safari, Pooyan; Hernando Pericás, Francisco Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Most state-of-the-art Deep Learning systems for text-independent speaker verification are based on speaker embedding extractors. These architectures are commonly composed of a feature extractor front-end together with a ...
  • Improving Web API usage logging 

    Koçi, Rediana; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Jovanovic, Petar; Abelló Gamazo, Alberto (Springer, 2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A Web API (WAPI) is a type of API whose interaction with its consumers is done through the Internet. While being accessed through the Internet can be challenging, mostly when WAPIs evolve, it gives providers the possibility ...

    Article
    Open Access
    The design of sustainable sewerage infrastructure is fundamental for achieving long-term sustainability goals. Piping systems are essential components in the water supply chain and in waste disposal systems worldwide. Among ...
  • Factors for the automation of the creation of virtual reality experiences to raise awareness of occupational hazards on construction sites 

    Mora Serrano, Javier; Muñoz La Rivera, Felipe; Valero López, Ignacio (2021-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Two of the differential characteristics of the AECO sector (architecture, engineering, construction and operation) are barriers for the mass creation of training materials for its workers. On the one hand, the workplace ...
  • A variable order framework for 3D nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete frames under general loading 

    Poliotti, Mauro; Bairán García, Jesús Miguel; Moller, O. (Elsevier, 2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    A framework for the analysis of three-dimensional reinforced concrete frame structures, capable of reproducing general failure modes, is presented. A force-based model which guarantees the equilibrium between nodal and ...
  • Warpage analysis and control of thin-walled structures manufactured by laser powder bed fusion 

    Lu, Xufei; Chiumenti, Michele; Cervera Ruiz, Miguel; Hua, Tan; Xin, Lin; Song, Wang (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Thin-walled structures are of great interest because of their use as lightweight components in aeronautical and aerospace engineering. The fabrication of these components by additive manufacturing (AM) often produces ...
  • Fostering sustainability and critical thinking through debate: a case study 

    Rodríguez Dono, Alfonso; Hernández Fernández, Antonio (2021-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Transversal competences such as sustainability or critical thinking have become more important in the last decades in University teaching. The objective of this article is to assess the effectiveness of debate as a teaching ...
  • Strain localization of orthotropic elasto–plastic cohesive–frictional materials: analytical results and numerical verification 

    Kim, Sungchul; Cervera Ruiz, Miguel; Wu, Jian-Ying; Chiumenti, Michele (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Strain localization analysis for orthotropic-associated plasticity in cohesive–frictional materials is addressed in this work. Specifically, the localization condition is derived from Maxwell’s kinematics, the plastic flow ...
  • Elimination properties for minimal dominating sets of graphs 

    Martí Farré, Jaume; Mora Giné, Mercè; Puertas González, María Luz; Ruiz Muñoz, José Luis (2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A dominating set of a graph is a vertex subset such that every vertexnot in the subset is adjacent to at least one in the subset. In this paper westudy whenever there exists a new dominating set contained (respectively, ...
  • Mapping vote transition at the 2012 outset of the Catalan push for independence 

    Puig Oriol, Xavier; Ginebra Molins, Josep (2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    In 2012 Catalan politics came to a standstill, and a push for independence was triggered by a huge pro-independence rally. That push led, in 2017, to the Spanish government taking over the Catalan government, and top Catalan ...
  • Analysis of a stabilized finite element approximation for a linearized logarithmic reformulation of the viscoelastic flow problem 

    Codina, Ramon; Moreno Martínez, Laura (2021-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper we present the numerical analysis of a finite element method for a linearized viscoelastic flow problem. In particular, we analyze a linearization of the logarithmic reformulation of the problem, which in ...
