    The Ebro River Delta, in the northwestern Mediterranean basin, has an extension of 320 km2 and is mainly covered by rice fields. Rice fields are known to be one of the main sources of anthropogenic methane emissions, and ...
  • Using fuzzy logic to evaluate fire vulnerability of dwellings located at the wildland-urban interface 

    Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Vacca, Pascale; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa (2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    WUI fires are posing great challenges to firefighting services, which are overwhelmed by the need to not only suppress the fire, but also protect the community. The need for self-protection is therefore growing, as is the ...
  • Vulnerability analysis to wildland- urban interface fires in metropolitan areas: an integrated approach 

    Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Caballero Valero, David; Rodríguez Giralt, Israel; Arenas Conejo, Miriam; Morán Núñez, Francisca Josefa; Canaleta Garcia, Guillem; Vacca, Pascale; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2022)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Wildfires pose a growing threat to populated areas around the world and especially in the Mediterranean Basin. Numerous Mediterranean cities have typically developed neighbourhoods that expand into forest land in which ...

    Conference report
    Open Access
    seven story building made of shipping containers is planned to be built in Barcelona, Spain. This study mainly aimed to evaluate the fire performance of one of these residential shipping containers whose walls and ceiling ...
  • High resolution fire behavior monitoring and plume simulation in the context of experimental fire 

    Paugam, Ronan Gabriel Michel (2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Coupled fire-atmosphere systems are currently developed to respond to the need of operational system in air quality and fire attack management. This work participates to this effort by proposing a simulation strategy where ...
  • Infrared imagery on wildfire research. Some examples of sound capabilities and applications 

    Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Wildfire infrared monitoring is nowadays applied to different problems related to fire prevention, fire suppression and fire behaviour analysis. In terms of research, infrared thermography offers unique capabilities although ...
  • First estimation of CH4fluxes using the222Rn Tracer Method over the central Iberian Peninsula 

    Grossi, Claudia; Vogel, Felix; Morguí, Josep Anton; Curcoll Masanes, Roger; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Batet Torrell, Óscar; Nofuentes, Manel; Occhipinti, Paola; Vargas Drechsler, Arturo; Rodó, Xavier (WIT Press, 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Emissions of CH4 over the central Iberian Peninsula have been estimated experimentally for the first time using the Radon Tracer Method (RTM), which uses the atmospheric noble radioactive gas 222Rn as an auxiliary tracer. ...
  • Enfoque multi-amenaza para abordar peligros Natech

    Los eventos naturales como huracanes, relámpagos, inundaciones, terremotos o deslizamientos de tierra, entre otros, pueden afectar instalaciones de proceso originando la pérdida de contención de materiales peligrosos. A ...
  • Performance analysis of a self-protection system for vehicles in case of WUI fire entrapment 

    Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Sebastià, Joan; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Sheltering inside a civilian vehicle has proved to be a high risk strategy in case of wildfire entrapment. Survival is by no means guaranteed, especially in moderate to high-intensity wildfires. However, vehicles do offer ...
  • Computing wildfire behaviour metrics from CFD simulation data 

    Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Mata, Christian; Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Parsons, Russell (International Association of Wildland Fire, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this article, we demonstrate a new post-processing methodology which can be used to analyse CFD wildfire simulation outputs in a model-independent manner. CFD models produce a great deal of quantitative output but require ...
