  • Airlines' network analysis on an air-rail multimodal system 

    Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Gurtner, Gérald; Bolic, Tatjana; Trapote Barreira, César; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de (2024-03-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article explores the potential impact of short-haul flight bans in Spain. We build the rail and flight network for the Spanish peninsula, merging openly available ADS-B-based data, for the reconstruction of air schedules ...
  • A shifted boundary method based on extension operators 

    Zorrilla Martínez, Rubén; Rossi, Riccardo; Scovazzi, Guglielmo; Canuto, Claudio; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (Elsevier, 2024-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    We consider formulations of the Shifted Boundary Method based on extrapolation operators other than the Taylor expansion. In the specific case of the Poisson equation, we prove that this approach is stable, provided some ...
  • Thermally driven winds on Mars: a review and a slope effect numerical study 

    Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Arias Calderón, Santiago; Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio (John Wiley & sons, 2024-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Regional and local thermally driven winds are planetary boundary layer phenomena frequently observed on Mars over sloping and flat regions, when diurnal surface temperature variations are significant and large-scale winds ...
  • Transversal flexoelectric coefficient for nanostructures at finite deformations from first principles 

    Codony Gisbert, David; Arias Vicente, Irene; Suryanarayana, Phanish (American Physical Society (APS), 2021-03-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a novel formulation for calculating the transversal flexoelectric coefficient of nanostructures at finite deformations from first principles. Specifically, we introduce the concept of radial polarization to make ...
  • Finite element method for sustainable and resilient structures made with bar and fiber -reinforced EAFS concrete 

    Garcia Llona, Aratz; Piñero Santiago, Ignacio; Ortega López, Vanesa; Santamaría León, Amaia; Aguirre Font, Miquel (Elsevier, 2024-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Structural engineers have to address the climate change challenge by designing sustainable and resilient structures. At this juncture, Electric Arc Furnace Slags (EAFS), a steel-industry waste, are used in replacement of ...
  • Switchable tribology of ferroelectrics 

    Cho, Seongwoo; Gaponenko, Iaroslav; Cordero Edwards, Kumara; Barceló Mercader, Jordi; Arias Vicente, Irene; Kim, Daeho; Lichtensteiger, Céline; Yeom, Jiwon; Musy, Loïc; Kim, Hyunji; Han, Seung Min; Catalan, Gustau; Paruch, Patrycja; Hong, Seungbum (2024-01-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Switchable tribological properties of ferroelectrics offer an alternative route to visualize and control ferroelectric domains. Here, we observe the switchable friction and wear behavior of ferroelectrics using a nanoscale ...
  • Adaptive phase-field modeling of fracture in orthotropic composites 

    Ishank, Jain; Muixí Ballonga, Alba; Annavarapu, Chandrasekhar; Mulay, Shantanu; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2023-11-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An adaptive phase-field method is developed and applied to model fracture propagation in orthotropic composites. The proposed approach extends the work of Muixí et al. (2020) to orthotropic composites through following ...
  • Effect of foot stato-dynamic disorders on hemodynamics of the lower limb using strain-gauge plethysmography 

    Tsimba, Laure; Rastel, Didier; Dechandon, Emilie; Vincent, Patrick; Micholet, Céline; Chaigneau, Cyril; Avril, Stephane; Aguirre Font, Miquel (Elsevier, 2023-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Background: The plantar venous pump (PVP), composed of deep plantar veins, is the most distal contributor to venous return from the lower limbs. A pressing need still exists to assess how plantar muscle contraction and ...
  • Patient-specific computational modelling of endovascular treatment for intracranial aneurysms 

    Bisighini, Beatrice; Aguirre Font, Miquel; Pierrat, Baptiste; Avril, Stephane (Elsevier, 2023-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Endovascular techniques, such as endoluminal or endosaccular reconstruction, have emerged as the preferred method for treating both ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms, replacing open surgery in most cases. The ...
  • Patterning and dynamics of membrane adhesion under hydraulic stress 

    Dinet, Céline; Torres Sánchez, Alejandro; Lanfranco, Roberta; Di Michele, Lorenzo; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino; Staykova, Margarita (2023-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Hydraulic fracturing plays a major role in cavity formation during embryonic development, when pressurized fluid opens microlumens at cell-cell contacts, which evolve to form a single large lumen. However, the fundamental ...
  • Domain-driven multiple-criteria decision-making for flight crew decision support tool 

    Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (Elsevier, 2023-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    During the flight, the crew might consider modifying their planned trajectory, taking into account currently available information, such as an updated weather forecast report or the already accrued amount of delay. This ...
  • Topology optimization of flexoelectric metamaterials with apparent piezoelectricity 

    Greco, Francesco; Codony Gisbert, David; Mohammadi, Hossein; Fernández Méndez, Sonia; Arias Vicente, Irene (Elsevier, 2024-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The flexoelectric effect, coupling polarization and strain gradient as well as strain and electric field gradients, is universal to dielectrics, but, as compared to piezoelectricity, it is more difficult to harness as it ...
