    The Fangar Bay, located at the northern lobe of the Ebro delta in the Spanish Mediterranean coast, supports an important aquaculture industry that must coexist with eco-tourism and water sports enterprises.These activities ...
  • A new open source solver for modelling fluid-structure interaction: case study of a point-absorberwave energy converter with power take-off unit 

    Tagliafierro, Bonaventura; Montuori, Rosario; Vayas, Ioannis; Ropero, Pablo; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Altomare, Corrado; Viccione, Giacomo; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho (National Technical University of Athens, 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, the capabilities of the open source code DualSPHysics coupled with the multiphysics library Project Chrono are shown. The framework is validated through an experimental campaign performed on a wave energy ...
  • Numerical modeling of underwater noise induced by shipping traffic in the Balearic Sea 

    Castro Alves Oliveira, Tiago; Fonollosa Magrinyà, Jordi; Mujal Colilles, Anna (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a novel methodology to model theunderwater noise induced by ship traffic in the Balearic Sea. Inthis regard, a three-dimensional underwater sound propagationmodel is used with realistic time-dependent physical ...
  • New strategies for environmental management in harbours: the case of the Tarragona port monobuoy 

    Morell, Mariano; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Mestres Ridge, Marc (Edicions UPC, 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Ports are a potential focus of sea pollution and therefore port authorities and operators have a key role on the sustainability and environmental protection of the coastal waters. In the last decades, monitoring techniques ...
  • Relative sea-level rise induced changes in habitat distribution in the Ebro Delta: implications for adaptation strategies 

    López-Doriga Sandoval, Uxía; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, the impact of relative sea-level rise (RSLR) and the potential damage to habitats in the Ebro Delta have been analysed. We present a methodology for improved flood-damage assessments caused by RSLR in natural ...
  • DualSPHysics: a numerical tool to simulate real breakwaters 

    Zhang, Feng; Shang, Shaoping; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; Altomare, Corrado; Marzeddu, Andrea (2017)
    Conference report

    The open-source code DualSPHysics is used in this work to compute the wave run-up in an existing dike in the Chinese coast using realistic dimensions, bathymetry and wave conditions. The GPU computing power of DualSPHysics ...
  • DualSPHysics: an open-source code for engineering purposes 

    Rogers, Benedict D.; Fourtakas, Georgios; Stansby, Peter K.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; García-Feal, Orlando; González-Cao, José; Birjukovs Canelas, Ricardo; Vacondio, Renato; Altomare, Corrado; Tafuni, Angelantonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The DualSPHysics project is an open-source smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) code for simulating free-surface flow. The DualSPHysics code can be run on both multi-core central processing units (CPUs) or on a graphics ...
  • A hybrid numerical model for coastal engineering problems 

    Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, T.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The implementation and first validation of a hybridization technique between a NLSWE model and a meshless fully Navier-Stokes equation-based model are presented. The scope is to overcome the limitations of each numerical ...
  • Wave reflection: small and large scale experiments on wave absorbing quay walls 

    Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim (Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 2013)
    Conference report

    The paper reports on small and large scale experiments carried out to assess the response of prefabricated caissons with internal rubble mound in terms of wave reflection. The research was conducted to analyse the effect ...
  • Dynamics of the rhythmic morphology on the low-energy Trabucador beach (Ebro delta) 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Falqués Serra, Albert (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Observations of rhythmic morphology along the Trabucador beach are contrasted with two numerical models to unravel the mechanisms of their formation. The Trabucador is a long narrow barrier at the SW side of the Ebro ...
