    Beam-like components help to provide structural integrity in a wide range of applications. Initially made of alloys or natural materials such as wood, today’s technologies like pultrusion make possible the manufacturing ...
  • A scalable thermo-mechanical framework for the part-scale analysis in metal additive manufacturing processes 

    Filho, Carlos Augusto Moreira; Caicedo Silva, Manuel Alejandro; Cervera Ruiz, Miguel; Chiumenti, Michele; Baiges Aznar, Joan (2023)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This work introduces an Additive Manufacturing (AM) Finite Element (FE) framework for the large-scale thermo-mechanical modeling of metal parts. Due to the complexity of the physical phe- nomenon and to meet the demands ...

    Churches represent an architectural archetype deeply rooted in the urban landscape and in the collective memory of Western society. Even for those who do not frequent them, churches play a fundamental role in the image of ...
  • Numerical modelling and experimental validation of structural laminated glass elements 

    Centelles Soler, Xavier; Castro Chicot, Josep Ramon; Cabeza Fabra, Luisa Fernanda (International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Laminated glass combines glass layers, which provide strength and durability, with transparent polymeric interlayers, which provide coupling between glass layers and prevent glass shards from scattering in case of breakage. ...
  • Comparison between numerical models for unbraced multiple bay pallet racks 

    Bové Tous, Oriol; Casafont Ribera, Miguel; Bonada Bo, Jordi; López Almansa, Francisco (John Wiley & sons, 2023)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Unbraced conventional pallet racks are structures intended for the storage of goods (commonly palletized); they are composed of vertical uprights, horizontal beams, and braces, connected together to form a steel skeleton-like ...
