    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In order to pursue sustainable objectives in the construction industry, a new composite material using vegetal fibre mesh coated with resin and embedded in mortar is developed and characterized. In this study, meshes of ...
  • Experimental investigation on ferritic stainless steel composite slabs 

    Arrayago Luquin, Itsaso; Ferrer Ballester, Miquel; Marimón Carvajal, Federico; Real Saladrigas, Esther; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique (2018-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Steel-concrete composite structures are well established in the construction of floors and roofing, being interesting solutions as steel decks act as formwork for relatively large spans and support the weight of the concrete ...
  • Experimental comparison of reinforced concrete beams strengthened against bending with different types of cementitious-matrix composite materials 

    Escrig Pérez, Christian; Gil Espert, Lluís; Bernat Masó, Ernest (Elsevier, 2017-04-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) materials overcome some hazard limitations of organic resins and are becoming a competitive technology on retrofitting reinforced concrete structures. In this work, five types ...
  • Reduced order modeling strategies for computational multiscale fracture 

    Oliver Olivella, Xavier; Caicedo Silva, Manuel Alejandro; Huespe, Alfredo Edmundo; Hernández Ortega, Joaquín Alberto; Roubin, Emmanuel (2017-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper proposes some new computational strategies for affordably solving multiscale fracture problems through a FE2 approach. To take into account the mechanical effects induced by fracture at the microstructure level ...
  • On the static strength of aluminium and carbon fibre aircraft lap joint repairs 

    Pitta, Siddharth; de la Mora Carles, Victor; Roure Fernández, Francisco; Crespo Artiaga, Daniel; Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio (2018-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The behaviour of various aircraft lap joint repair configurations is investigated experimentally and numerically under static loading. The lap joints consist of aluminium alloy (AA) 2024-T3 substrates repaired with twin ...
  • Coupled effective stress analysis of insertion problems in geotechnics with the Particle Finite Element Method 

    Monforte Vila, Lluís; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Gens Solé, Antonio (Elsevier, 2018-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper describes a computational framework for the numerical analysis of quasi-static soil-structure insertion problems in water saturated media. The Particle Finite Element Method is used to solve the linear momentum ...
  • Multi-objective design optimisation of stamping process for advanced high strength steels 

    Lee, Dong Seop; Pons Prats, Jordi; Espinoza Román, Héctor Gabriel; Fruitós Bickham, Óscar Alejandro; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper investigates the multi-objective design optimisation of stamping process to control both the shape and quality of final Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSSs) in terms of springback and safety using Distributed ...
  • GPR clutter amplitude processing to detect shallow geological targets 

    Salinas Nadal, Victor; Santos Assunçao, Sonia; Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The analysis of clutter in A-scans produced by energy randomly scattered in some specific geological structures, provides information about changes in the shallow sedimentary geology. The A-scans are composed by the coherent ...
  • GPR building inspection: Examples of building structures assessed with Ground Penetrating Radar 

    Pérez Gracia, María de la Vega; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Clapés Boixader, Jaume; Santos Assunçao, Sonia (University of Edinburgh, 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The GPR assessment of buildings depends on the structure or part of the building studied. In this paper, three different case study are presented, all of them about old buildings that need to be restored or modified. ...
  • An experimental investigation of a new perfect bond technology for composite slabs 

    Ferrer Ballester, Miquel; Marimón Carvajal, Federico; Casafont Ribera, Miguel (2018-03-30)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Steel-concrete composite slabs generally fail due to the debonding with separation of sections caused by longitudinal shear forces, regardless of the shape of the sheeting profile or the design of the embossments. This ...
  • Effect of Sporosarcina Pasteurii on the strength properties of compressed earth specimens 

    Bernat Masó, Ernest; Gil Espert, Lluís; Escrig Pérez, Christian; Barbé, Jordi; Cortés, Pilar (Instituto Técnico de la Construcción y del Cemento, 2018-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Microbial biodeposition of calcite induction for improving the performance of rammed earth is a research area that must be analysed in a representative environment. This analysis must consider the compaction force, particle ...
  • Study of the compressive response of masonry using non-conventional joint materials 

    Bernat Masó, Ernest; Escrig Pérez, Christian; Gil Espert, Lluís (InderScience Publishers, 2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    The compressive response of masonry is influenced by geometric, material and execution variables. In addition, the nature of bricks and mortar typically introduces uncertainty to the experimental results. In order to reduce ...
