  • Independent learning as class preparation to foster student-centred learning in first-year engineering students 

    Pejuan Alcobé, Arcadi; Antonijuan Rull, Josefina (2019-11-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    In first-year engineering students, a common teacher-centred, passive learning and deficient secondary educational backgrounds are often observed. However, there is a problematic difference whether the individual background ...
  • Efficient aeroelastic analysis of wind loads on inflatable hangars 

    Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Ortega, Enrique (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Wind loads play a crucial role in inflatable structures. Unfortunately, design loads from safety regulations grossly overestimate the real aerodynamic forces. Thus, a more accurate estimation of wind loads is desirable. ...
  • Analysis of weather impact on flight efficiency for Stockholm Arlanda Airport arrivals 

    Lemetti, Anastasia; Polishchuk, Tatiana; Sáez García, Raúl; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2019)
    Conference report

  • A numerical investigation of wind tunnel model deformations caused by the twin-sting support system 

    Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Ortega, Enrique; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2009)
    External research report
    Open Access
    This work presents a wing deformation analysis of a twin-sting-mounted commercial aircraft model. Twin-sting arrangements minimize flow disturbances around the model fuselage and tail; on the other hand, they cause important ...
  • A 3D low-order panel method for unsteady aerodynamic problems 

    Ortega, Enrique; Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2010)
    External research report
    Open Access
    An unsteady low-order panel method for three-dimensional subsonic analyses is presented. The method, which is based on well-established techniques in computational aerodynamics, is intended to achieve a cost-effective ...

    This report is the Deliverable 2.1 R-WAKE System Specification Document, which provides the compilation of high-levelR-Wake requirements, resulting from Task 2.1 activities. More specifically, this ...
  • Advanced methodology for wind resource assessment near hydroelectric dams in complex mountainous areas 

    Yang, Lin; Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de (2019-11-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    To increase renewable energy generation in some hydroelectric dams, a solution consisting in installing wind turbines close to dams is proposed. Indeed, dam surroundings are prone to benefit from wind speed-up effect, extra ...
  • Evidence for a dynamics crossover and its implication on the freezing temperature determination of relaxor ferroelectrics 

    Levit Valenzuela, Rafael; Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; Martínez García, Julio Cesar; García García, José Eduardo (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2019-09-27)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Relaxor ferroelectrics are characterized by a broadened and dispersive permittivity peak in their temperature-dependent dielectric spectra. Although several models have been proposed to explain the nature of these materials, ...
  • Shape optimization in aeronautical applications using neural networks 

    Daring, Alan; Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Bugeda Castelltort, Gabriel; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2007-06)
    External research report
    Open Access
    An optimization methodology based on neural networks was developed for use in 2D optimal shape design problems. Neural networks were used as a parameterization scheme to represent the shape function, and an edge-based ...
