  • Toward sustainable management: 2D modelling of a self-cleaning system to improve geometry in front of the flushing gate 

    Ruiloba, Luis Carlos; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Russo, Beniamino; Choi, Gyewoon; Jang, Dongwoo (2018-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper aims to show how numerical modelling based on 2D SWE can be used to analyze the cleaning effectiveness of flushing waves in storm tanks. The case study under consideration is an existing storm tank located in ...
  • Stability criteria for flooded vehicles: a state-of-the-art review 

    Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Russo, Beniamino; Djordjevic, S. (2018-02)
    Article

    Hazard conditions related to vehicular circulation are important in flood risk management. The knowledge of vehicles stability when those are exposed to flooding is crucial for an informed flood risk management in urban ...
  • Prediction of organic combined sewer sediment release and transport 

    Seco, Raquel Irene; Schellart, Alma Neeltje Antonia; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Tait, Simon (2018-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Accurate predictions of sediment loads released by sewer overflow discharges are important for being able to provide protection to vulnerable receiving waters. These predictions are sensitive to the estimated sediment ...
  • Is it better to use gate opening as control variable than discharge to control irrigation canals? 

    Horváth, Klaudia; Galvis Restrepo, Eduard; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Rodellar Benedé, José (2015-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Centralized model predictive controllers are common in water systems. The control action variable can be the discharge, and the subsystems (canal pools) are modeled separately. This paper focuses on short canal pools where ...
  • Turbulent convection by thermoelectricity in a cooling-heating didactive device 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Sanchez, Jesus Mary (Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), 2017-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Local Diffusion and the topological structure of vorticity and velocity fields is measured in the transition from a homogeneous linearly stratified fluid to a cellular or layered structure by means of convective cooling ...
  • GoRoSoBo: an overall control diagram to improve the efficiency of water transport systems in real time 

    Bonet Gil, Enrique; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Yubero de Mateo, Maria Teresa; Fernández-Francos, Xavier (2017-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Agriculture plays an important part in the food chain and water resources for agriculture are essential. A problem is that the water transport systems present low efficiencies in practice. Crop yields must be optimized, ...
  • Fractal analysis of growing cities and its relationship with health centre 

    Leyton, Carolina; Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Tarquis Alfonso, Ana Maria; Gil Martín, Joan Carles; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David (Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), 2017-06-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    During recent years, many research group interested in the study of organizational networks from different fields, e.g. studies of behavior of cities growth following the fractal theory. Considering the fractal analysis ...
  • A new experiments-based methodology to define the stability threshold for any vehicle exposed to flooding 

    Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Russo, Beniamino; Djordjevic, S. (Taylor & Francis, 2017-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A vehicle exposed to flooding, after losing stability, becomes buoyant and may be washed away with potential injuries and fatalities. Such vehicles cause additional disruption to traffic that is already affected by flooding, ...
  • Modelación numérica de flujo mixto en conductos cerrados con esquemas en volúmenes finitos 

    Aragón Hernández, José Luis; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest (2017-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    En este trabajo se presenta un modelo numérico para la simulación de flujo mixto (flujo en lámina libre y flujo en presión) en conductos cerrados a través de las ecuaciones de Saint Venant en una dimensión para flujo en ...
  • Predictive control of irrigation canals - robust design and real-time implementation 

    Aguilar, Jose V.; Langarita, Pedro; Rodellar Benedé, José; Linares, Lorenzo; Horvath, Klaudia (2016-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Predictive control is one of the most commonly used control methods in a variety of application areas, including hydraulic processes such as water distribution canals for irrigation. This article presents the design and ...
  • Assessment of inlet efficiency through a 3D simulation: numerical and experimental comparison 

    Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Recasens, Joan; Russo, Beniamino; Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo (2016-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Inlet efficiency is a requirement for characterizing the flow transfers between surface and sewer flow during rain events. The dual drainage approach is based on the joint analysis of both upper and lower drainage levels, ...
  • Estabilidad de personas en flujos de agua
