    This article presents the results of the works of the PROMETHEAS project, which focuses on the mental health of sea workers. This project is carried out at the Maritime University of Szczecin and brings together a consortium ...
  • An invariant based transversely-isotropic constitutive model for unidirectional fibre reinforced composites considering the matrix viscous effects 

    Gerbaud, Paul William; Otero Gruer, Fermín Enrique; Bussetta, Philippe; Camanho, Pedro P. (2019-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Fibres Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) are found in several applications in aeronautics, space and in the automotive industry. These applications are exposed to loading conditions, including impact, which results in a complex ...
  • Fatigue prediction of composite materials, based on serial/parallel mixing theory 

    Jurado Granados, Joel; Martínez García, Javier; Barbu, Lucia Gratiela; Capua, Daniel di (2022-03-31)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work, a numerical procedure to obtain the fatigue performance of composite laminates is proposed. The formulation used is based on the Serial/Parallel Mixing Theory (SP-RoM) and a fatigue damage model. The SP-RoM ...
  • Blind benchmarking of seven longitudinal tensile failure models for two virtual unidirectional composites 

    Breite, Christian; Melnikov, Alexander; Turon Travesa, Albert; de Morais, Alfredo Balacó; Otero Gruer, Fermín Enrique; Mesquita, F; Costa Balanzat, Josep; Mayugo Majó, Joan Andreu; Guerrero García, José María; Gorbatikh, Larissa (2021-01)
    Article

    Many models for prediction of longitudinal tensile failure of unidirectional (UD) composites have been developed in the last decades. These models require significant assumptions and simplifications, but their consequences ...
  • A ship routing system applied to the statistical analysis of the western mediterranean wave trends 

    Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier; Ventura Jariod, Elisenda; Belmonte López, Román (MDPI, 2021-05-31)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Western Mediterranean basin is a busy route by Short Sea Shipping with an important route between Barcelona (Spain) and Genoa (Italy), where climatic patterns show similarities but vary during the year. One essential ...
  • Ship emissions reduction using weather ship routing optimisation 

    Borén Altés, Clara; Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2022-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A significant proportion of global carbon dioxide emissions are attributed to ocean-sailing ships and shipping emissions are predicted to double in less than 30 years. This paper investigates the benefit of using weather ...
  • Open-loop exhaust-gas cleaning system: analysis of effects produced on Barcelona port water pH 

    Díaz Delgado, Nelson Gustavo; Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier (2022-03-31)
    Article
    Open Access
    The implementation of a 0.5% mass/mass sulphur cap in fuels used by ships has become a reality. Furthermore, regulation 14 of the MARPOL Convention–Annex VI (amended) establishes that the limit on fuel used by ships operating ...
  • Numerical and experimental procedure for material calibration using the serial/parallel mixing theory, to analyze different composite failure modes 

    Jurado Granados, Joel; Martínez García, Javier; Nash, Niamh; Bachour, Carlos; Manolakis, Ioannis; Comer, Anthony; Capua, Daniel di (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work proposes a calibration procedure to obtain the material parameters required by the Serial/Parallel Mixing Theory for the analysis of composites. A set of experimental tests are defined to obtain the main composite ...
  • Analysis and measurement of SOx, CO2, PM and NOx emissions in port auxiliary vessels 

    Murcia González, Juan Carlos (2021-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The objective of this paper is to provide an estimation of air emissions (CO2, NOx, SOx and PM) released by port assistant vessels at port level. The methodology is based on the “full bottom-up” approach and starts by ...
