  • Structural health monitoring for jacket-type offshore wind turbines: experimental proof of concept 

    Vidal Seguí, Yolanda; Aquino, Gabriela; Pozo Montero, Francesc; Gutiérrez Arias, José Elegio Moisés (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    Structural health monitoring for offshore wind turbines is imperative. Offshore wind energy is progressively attained at greater water depths, beyond 30 m, where jacket foundations are presently the best solution to cope ...
  • PCA based stress monitoring of cylindrical specimens using PZTs and guidedwaves 

    Quiroga Méndez, Jabid; Mujica Delgado, Luis Eduardo; Villamizar Mejía, Rodolfo; Ruiz Ordóñez, Magda; Camacho Navarro, Jhonatan (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2017-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Since mechanical stress in structures affects issues such as strength, expected operational life and dimensional stability, a continuous stress monitoring scheme is necessary for a complete integrity assessment. Consequently, ...
  • Analysis of occupational accidents in underground and surface mining in Spain using data-mining techniques 

    Sanmiquel Pera, Lluís; Bascompta Massanes, Marc; Rossell Garriga, Josep Maria; Anticoi Sudzuki, Hernán Francisco; Guasch Cascallo, Eduard (2018-03-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    An analysis of occupational accidents in the mining sector was conducted using the data from the Spanish Ministry of Employment and Social Safety between 2005 and 2015, and data-mining techniques were applied. Data was ...
  • Characterization and automatic screening of reactive and abnormal neoplastic B lymphoid cells from peripheral blood 

    Alférez Baquero, Edwin Santiago; Merino González, Anna; Bigorra López, Laura; Rodellar Benedé, José (2016-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    The objective was to advance in the automatic, image-based, characterization and recognition of a heterogeneous set of lymphoid cells from peripheral blood, including normal, reactive, and five groups of abnormal lymphocytes: ...
  • A wind turbine blade damage detection system based on data analysis: an academic xample on the use of histograms 

    Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; Buenestado Caballero, Pablo (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The main objective of this paper is to introduce an academic example on the use of histograms to develop a wind turbine blade fault (or damage) detection system. This approach merely uses data analysis obtained from a ...
