  • Transmission Loss formulas for junctions taking into accountin-plane waves 

    Poblet-Puig, Jordi (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the transmission of vibrations through structural junctions at high frequencies,the distribution of energy between wave types con suffer important variations. It means, for example, that incoming energy concentrated in ...
  • Application of inverse SEA models to obtain the Coupling LossFactor in structural junctions from numerical simulations 

    Poblet-Puig, Jordi; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An inverse SEA procedure that mimics the Experimental SEA (ESEA) is used in order to obtain the Coupling Loss Factor (CLF) of structural junctions. The main differences with respect to ESEA are that: 1) the subsystem ...
  • Comparison of continuous and hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin methods in incompressible fluid flow problems 

    Fernández Méndez, Sonia (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A comparison of the computational efficiency between Continuous Galerkin (CG) methods, with Taylor–Hood approximations, and Hybridizable Discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods is presented for the solution of the incompressible ...
  • Coupling of continuous and HDG methods 

    Paipuri, Mahendra; Tiago, Carlos; Fernández Méndez, Sonia (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A coupling strategy between hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) and continuous Galerkin (CG) methods is proposed in the framework of second-order elliptic operators. The coupled formulation is implemented and its ...
  • Classifying granular materials for feeding performance using experimental and numerical techniques 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Caba, Joan; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar (2018)
    Conference report

    Flowability of powders and bulk solids is critical for the packaging industry in the selection and design of bulk material handling equipment. Nowadays, a variety of feeder systems are used for dosing operations in bagging ...
  • Hygroscopicity issues in powder and grain technology 

    Torres Serra, Joel; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The effect of hygroscopicity on flowability of powders and bulk solids with applications in the packaging industry is experimentally and numerically investigated. Firstly, four granular materials are tested at different ...
  • Caracterización numérica y experimental de un sistema vibroacústico mediante "Advanced Transferer Path Analysis" 

    Cierco, Ester; Vicens Rodríguez, Pere; Aragonès Martín, Àngels; Arcas, Kevin; Poblet-Puig, Jordi; Magrans Fontrodona, Francesc Xavier; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (Sociedad Española de Acústica, 2018)
    Conference report

    ATPA (Advanced Transfer Path Analysis) is a method that allows knowing the noise paths and contributions of a vibroacoustic problem. It is clear that a good quantification of the less dominant contributions is essential ...
  • Arrival trade-offs considering total flight and passenger delays and fairness 

    Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Delgado Muñoz, Luis (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper studies trade-offs between flight and passenger delays and fairness when assigning delay pre-tactically (on-ground at origin airport) due to reduced airport capacity. The paper also defines and analyses ...
  • Cell-DEVS modeling and simulation of artificial hydraulic fracturing of rocks in boreholes (WIP) 

    Oyelowo, I.; Wainer, G.; Echegini, N.S.; Ukeme, J.B.; Zlotnik, Sergio (Society for Computer Simulation International, 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Hydraulic Fracturing is a technique used in the extraction and exploration of oil and gas. During hydraulic fracturing, a high-pressure fluid is injected into a wellbore; this fluid flows through some artificially made ...
  • Reshaping of large aeronautical structural parts: a simplified simulation approach 

    Mena Andrade, Ramiro; Aguado, José Vicente; Guinard, S.; Huerta, Antonio (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Large aeronautical structural parts present important distortions after machining. This problem is caused by the presence of residual stresses, which are developed during previous manufacturing steps (quenching). Before ...
  • Engagement of civil engineer students in the first academic year 

    Estela Carbonell, M. Rosa; Díez, Pedro (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Stronger student engagement or improved student engagement are common instructional objectives expressed by Higher Educational Institutions. They aim, in particular, at reducing the early dropouts of Science, technology, ...
  • Alternative Trajectory Options for Delay Reduction in Demand and Capacity Balancing 

    Xu, Yan; Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Melgosa Farrés, Marc; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Aiming to a more collaborative demand and capacity balancing (DCB), in the scope of trajectory based operations, this paper presents an approach that takes alternative trajectories into a DCB optimization algorithm. ...
