    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Numerical simulation of undrained insertion problems in geotechnical engineering with the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) 

    Monforte Vila, Lluís; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Gens Solé, Antonio (Elsevier, 2017-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper presents total-stress numerical analyses of large-displacement soil-structure interaction problems in geomechanics using the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM). This method is characterized by frequent remeshing ...
  • Generation of segmental chips in metal cutting modelled with the PFEM 

    Rodriguez Prieto, Juan Manuel; Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Cante Terán, Juan Carlos; Oliver Olivella, Xavier; Jonsen, Par (2017-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Particle Finite Element Method, a lagrangian finite element method based on a continuous Delaunay re-triangulation of the domain, is used to study machining of Ti6Al4V. In this work the method is revised and applied ...

    In this paper, conserving time-stepping algorithms for frictionless and full stick friction dynamic contact problems are presented. Time integration algorithms for frictionless and full stick friction dynamic contact ...
  • Optimisation procedure for additive manufacturing processes based on mask image projection to improve Z accuracy and resolution 

    Bonada Bo, Jordi; Muguruza Blanco, Asier; Fernández Francos, Xavier; Ramis Juan, Xavier (Elsevier Ltd, 2018-01-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Mask image projection is an additive manufacturing (AM) technique used in photocurable materials which allows the simultaneous energy delivery in a whole area instead of a single spot. A common problem for this AM process ...
  • Cálculo de estructuras reticulares. Carlos Fernández Casado 

    Pons Poblet, Josep Maria (2017-12-22)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    There are written works held in such esteem that they are purely referred to by the name of the author. This is the case of the Arguelles, the Jiménez Montoya, the Salinger and, evidently, the Fernández Casado. In this ...
