    La industria avícola mundial genera una gran cantidad de residuos que en la actualidad son mayoritariamente desechados. Entre ellos, las plumas (CFs), estructuras queratínicas que presentan grupos funcionales y otras ...
  • Fluid dynamics and heat transfer in the wake of a sphere 

    Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María; Lehmkuhl, Oriol; Soria Guerrero, Manel; Gómez, Samuel; Domínguez Pumar, Manuel; Kowalski, Lukasz (2019-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Direct numerical simulation and large-eddy simulation have been performed for a heated sphere at Reynolds numbers of $Re=1000$ and $Re=10^4$, respectively. The Prandtl number for both simulations has been $Pr=0.7$. ...
  • Active flow control for external aerodynamics: from micro air vehicles to a full aircraft in stall 

    Lehmkuhl, Oriol; Lozano-Durán, Adrian; Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2020-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We investigate the aerodynamic performance of active flow control of airfoils and wings using synthetic jets with zero net-mass flow. The study is conducted via wall-resolved and wall-modeled large-eddy simulation using ...
  • Effects of the actuation on the boundary layer of an airfoil at Reynolds Number Re = 60000

  • Versatile image-based measurements of granular flows and water wave propagation in experiments of tsunamis generated by landslides 

    Bregoli, Francesco; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Bateman Pinzón, Allen (2020-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Landslides falling into water bodies can generate destructive waves, which can be classified as tsunamis. An experimental facility to study this phenomenon has been set up. It consists of a landslidegenerator releasing ...
  • New epoxy thermosets derived from clove oil prepared by epoxy-amine curing 

    Santiago Abraira, David; Guzmán, Dailyn; Ramis Juan, Xavier; Ferrando Piera, Francesc; Serra Albet, Maria Àngels (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    New thermosets from a triglycidyl eugenol derivative (3EPOEU) as a renewable epoxy monomer were obtained by an epoxy-amine curing process. A commercially-available Jeffamine® and isophorone diamine, both obtained from ...
  • On the formation of Taylor-Görtler structures in the vortex induced vibration phenomenon

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work, the three-dimensional structure of the boundary layer in the context of the vortex induced vibration of a circular cylinder is presented and investigated for the first time. Large-eddy simulations of a low ...
  • A numerical approach for non-Newtonian two-phase flows using a conservative level-set method 

    Amani, Ahmad; Balcázar Arciniega, Néstor; Naseri, Alireza; Rigola Serrano, Joaquim (2020-04-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A finite-volume based conservative level-set method is presented to numerically solve the non-Newtonian multiphase flow problems. One set of governing equations is written for the whole domain, and different phases are ...
  • Synthesis and thermophysical characterization of fatty Amides for thermal energy storage 

    Canela Xandri, Anna; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Balcells Fluvia, Mercè; Fernández Francos, Xavier; Cabeza Fabra, Luisa Fernanda; Canela Garayoa, Ramon (2019-10-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    Nine monoamides were synthesized from carboxylic acids (C8–C18) and crude glycerol. The final monoamides were the result of a rearrangement of the acyl chain during the final hydrogenation process. The purity of the final ...
  • A water balance model to estimate climate change impact on groundwater recharge in Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico 

    Rodríguez Huerta, Edgar; Rosas Casals, Martí; Hernández Terrones, Laura Margarita (2020-03)
    Article
