    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents two mechanisms that have been designed, built and put into operation by our research team at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona (Spain) which have many practical applications in ...
  • Damage detection and diagnosis for offshore wind foundations 

    Puruncajas Maza, Bryan; Vidal Seguí, Yolanda; Tutivén Gálvez, Christian (2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Structural health monitoring for wind turbines (WT) in remote locations, as offshore, is crucial (Presencia and Shafiee, 2018). Offshore wind farms are increasingly realized in water depths beyond 30 meters, where lattice ...
  • Finite-time stabilization of Chameleon hidden hyperchaotic flows 

    Reyhani, Arezoo; Mobayen, Saleh; Fekih, Afef; Pujol Vázquez, Gisela (2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The Chameleon hidden chaotic system is a chaotic system with exciting and particular properties. One of its specific features is that by changing its constant parameters, the flow exhibits three classes of hidden attractors ...
  • Monitorización de la integridad estructural para aerogeneradores offshore con estructura tipo jacket mediante métodos de aprendizaje automático 

    Aquino, Gabriela; Vidal Seguí, Yolanda; Gutiérrez Arias, José Eligio Moisés; Pozo Montero, Francesc (2020)

  • Application of manifold learning algorithms to improve the classification performance of an electronic nose 

    León Medina, Jersson Xavier; Anaya Vejar, Maribel; Pozo Montero, Francesc; Tibaduiza Burgos, Diego Alexander (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report

    The problem of classification and the use of robust methodologies in electronic nose sensor arrays applications are still open. Among the several steps in the developed method- ologies, it is clear that feature extraction ...
  • 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 ...
  • An effective strategy of real-time vision-based control for a Stewart platform 

    Rossell Garriga, Josep Maria; Vicente Rodrigo, Jesús; Rubió Massegú, Josep; Barcons Xixons, Víctor (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A Stewart platform is a kind of parallel robot which can be used for a wide variety of technological and industrial applications. In this paper, a Stewart platform designed and assembled at the Universitat Polit`ecnica de ...
  • A boundary control technique to the string-tip-mass system based on a non-symmetric peak-detector model 

    Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; Pujol Vázquez, Gisela (2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a vibration control design to the string-tip-mass system by using a non-symmetric peakdetector mechanism. Previously, this peak-detector system was used as an easy algorithm to mitigate vibration on ...
  • Adaptive predictive control of a base-isolated hysteretic system 

    Ponce de León Puig, Nubia Ilia; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; Rodellar Benedé, José (2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This article proposes an adaptive predictive control design technique to mitigate the displacement in a hysteretical base-isolated system seismically perturbed. The obtained predictive control law is based on the ...
  • Advanced computational design of shared tuned mass-inerter dampers for vibration control of adjacent multi-story structures 

    Palacios Quiñonero, Francisco; Rubió Massegú, Josep; Rossell Garriga, Josep Maria; Karimi, Hamid Reza (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Inerters are a novel type of mechanical actuation devices that are able to produce large inertial forces with a relatively small mass. Due to this property, inerters can provide an effective solution to the main drawbacks ...
  • An asymmetric-friction based model for magnetorheological dampers 

    García Baños, Isabel; Ikhouane, Fayçal; Aguirre Carvajal, Naile (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The modeling of magnetorheological dampers combines the use of the laws of physics along with a phenomenological description. The phenomenological models that are used to describe these devices present a symmetric ...
  • Non-linear damage classification based on machine learning and damage indices 

    Tibaduiza Burgos, Diego Alexander; Torres-Arredondo, Miguel Ángel; Vitola Oyaga, Jaime; Anaya Vejar, Maribel; Pozo Montero, Francesc (2017)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The use of guided wave-based approaches presents some advantages in the structural inspection and damage identification processes. It is driven by the fact that these waves can propagate over relatively long distances and ...
