  • Twin propeller time-dependent scouring processes: physical experiments 

    Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a new set of experiments in local scour due to confined twin propeller jets aiming to include propeller driving characteristics to the analysis of the scouring action during in-port manoeuvres. The maximum scour ...
  • A new morphodynamic instability associated with cross-shore transport in the nearshore

    This paper analyses the spatio-temporal evolution of Ningbo-Zhoushan port growing from a feeder port to a hub port finding the historical pathways followed by its expanding in terms of container throughput capacity and ...
  • Structural analyses of GLARE-GFRP transition for integrated VHF antenna on a fuselage panel 

    Turon Pujol, Francesc; Otero Gruer, Fermín Enrique; Martínez García, Javier (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The objective of this paper is to describe the numerical simulation of the transition zones in the multifunctional fuselage panel design to integrate a VHF (Very High Frequency) antenna. The panel is made of GLARE (Glass ...
  • Análisis numérico de Eco-composites con procedimientos de homogeneización 

    Barbu, Lucia Gratiela; Martínez García, Javier; Oller Martínez, Sergio Horacio (2020-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Los procedimientos de homogeneización han ido ganando cada vez más énfasis en el campo del análisis numérico de los materiales compuestos. Un procedimiento de homogenización se basa sobre la hipótesis de que existe un set ...

  • Statistical analysis of the weather conditions of the main SSS routes in the western Mediterranean 

    Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier; Ventura Jariod, Elisenda (Springer, 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the early years, maritime education had been mainly focused on the vocational training of deck officers on board. However, as the maritime business evolved, a change in the maritime education curriculum started to be ...
  • Added resistance parametrizations due to waves in a weather ship routing system 

    Borén Altés, Clara; Falevitch, Loïc; Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This contribution compares the parametrization of the wave effect on navigation in a weather ship routing system using three different formulations. The investigation is supported by the use of a ship routing system, the ...
  • Ship propeller effects on harbours 

    Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (Texas Digital Library, 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The increase in marine traffic during the last decades has led to important changes in ship designs. These changes have been directly affecting harbor structures designed to host smaller and less powerful ships. One of the ...
  • Visualization of container throughput evolution of the Yangtze River Delta multi-port system: the ternary diagram method
