  • Transfer and dissipation of energy during wave group propagation on a gentle beach slope 

    Padilla, Enrique; Alsina Torrent, José María (2017-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    The propagation of bichromatic wave groups over a constant 1:100 beach slope and the influence of the group modulation is presented. The modulation is controlled by varying the group frequency, fg, which is shown to ...

    In this work, we developed a software tool for the simplified, automated definition and viewing of loci in the plane, an essential task in the design, engineering and architectural fields. The process was started by ...
  • Latent heat thermophotovoltaic batteries 

    Datas Medina, Alejandro; López-Ceballos, Alicia; López, Esther; Ramos Cabal, Alba; del Cañizo, Carlos (2022-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Latent heat thermophotovoltaic (LHTPV) batteries store electricity as latent heat at very high temperatures (>1,000°C) and convert this heat back to electricity on demand using thermophotovoltaics (TPVs). In this study, ...

  • Numerical modeling of flow and bed evolution of bichromatic wave groups on an intermediate beach using nonhydrostatic XBeach 

    Ruffini, Gioele; Briganti, Riccardo; Alsina Torrent, José María (2020-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper analyzes the modeling of the hydro- and morphodynamics of bichromatic wave groups on an intermediate beach with an initial 1:15 slope. The nonhydrostatic version of XBeach was used to simulate two incident wave ...
