    Risk assessment and management is an important step towards resilient and sustainable cities. Among many other perils, both natural and manmade, seismic risk is a major threat for resilience and sustainability. In recent ...
  • Stern twin-propeller effects on harbor infrastructures. Experimental analysis 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la; Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier (2018-11-02)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The growth of marine traffic in harbors, and the subsequent increase in vessel and propulsion system sizes, produces three linked problems at the harbor basin area: (i) higher erosion rates damaging docking structures; ...
  • Seakeeping with the semi-Lagrangian particle finite element method 

    Nadukandi, Prashanth; Serván Camas, Borja; Becker, Pablo; García Espinosa, Julio (Springer, 2017-07)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The application of the semi-Lagrangian Particle Finite Element Method (SL–PFEM) for the seakeeping sim-ulation of the Wave Adaptive Modular Vehicle under spray generating conditions is presented. The time integration of ...
  • Adaptive and off-line techniques for non-linear multiscale analysis 

    Zaghi, Stefano; Martínez García, Javier; Rossi, Riccardo; Petracca, Massimo (2018-08-22)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper presents two procedures, based on the numerical multiscale theory, developed to predict the mechanical non-linear response of composite materials under monotonically increasing loads. Such procedures are designed ...

    The main purpose of this paper is to develop a reliable method based on a three-dimensional (3D) finite-element (FE) model to simulate the constitutive behaviour of reinforced concrete structures strengthened with ...
  • Potential economic benefits of using a weather ship routing system at Short Sea Shipping 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier; Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la (2018-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This contribution investigates the economic benefits of using weather ship routing on Short Sea Shipping (SSS) activities. The investigation is supported with the development of a ship routing system based on pathfinding ...
  • Temporal analysis of laser beam propagation in the atmosphere using computer-generated long phase screens 

    Dios Otín, Víctor Federico; Recolons Martos, Jaume; Rodríguez Gómez, Alejandro Antonio; Batet Torrell, Óscar (2008-02-04)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Temporal analysis of the irradiance at the detector plane is intended as the first step in the study of the mean fade time in a free optical communication system. In the present work this analysis has been performed for a ...
  • FIC/FEM formulation with matrix stabilizing terms for incompressible flows at low and high Reynolds numbers 

    Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Valls, A.; García Espinosa, Julio (2006-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We present a general formulation for incompressible fluid flow analysis using the finite element method. The necessary stabilization for dealing with convective effects and the incompressibility condition are introduced ...
