  • A model for a multiresolution time series database system 

    Llusà Serra, Aleix; Escobet Canal, Teresa; Vila Marta, Sebastià (WSEAS Press, 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we propose a model for multiresolution time series database management systems. Thismodel stores compactly a time series and manages consistently its temporal dimension. This is achieved byextracting different ...

    A previous study carried out by the authors allowed to identify the optimum MgO by-product for a 100% SO2 removal efficiency in a wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process. The present research analyzes the synergistic ...
  • Magnesium phosphate cement formulated with low grade magnesium oxide with controlled porosity and low thermal conductivity as a function of admixture 

    Niubó Eslava, Maria; Formosa Mitjans, Joan; Maldonado Alameda, A.; del Valle Zermeño, Ricardo; Chimenos Ribera, Josep Maria (2016-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Magnesium phosphate cement (MPC) formulated with low-grade magnesium oxide (LG-MgO) can be better considered as sustainable MPC (sust-MPC). Among other properties, sust-MPC could be used as building material for constructive ...
  • Health-aware model predictive control of wind turbines using stifness degradation approach 

    Eloy Sanchez, Hector; Escobet Canal, Teresa; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Wind turbine blades are under signi cant gravitational, inertial, and aero-dynamic loads, which cause their fatigue and degradation during the wind turbine operational life. The present work proposes a Model Predictive ...
  • A survey on modulation techniques in molecular communication via diffusion 

    Kuran, Mehmet Sükrü; Yilmaz, Hüseyin Birkan; Demirkol, Ilker Seyfettin; Farsad, Nariman; Goldsmith, Andrea (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-12-31)
    Article
    Open Access
    This survey paper focuses on modulation aspects of molecular communication, an emerging field focused on building biologically-inspired systems that embed data within chemical signals. The primary challenges in designing ...
  • Fracture toughness to understand stretch-flangeability and edge cracking resistance in AHSS 

    Casellas Padró, Daniel; Lara, Antoni; Frómeta Gutiérrez, David; Gutierrez Castillo, David; Molas Busquets, Sílvia; Pérez Caro, Lluís; Rehrl, Johannes; Suppan, Clemens (2016-10-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    The edge fracture is considered as a high risk for automotive parts, especially for parts made of advanced high strength steels (AHSS). The limited ductility of AHSS makes them more sensitive to the edge damage. The ...
  • Metabolisme urbà de Terrassa: comprensió de la ciutat amb el seu entorn natural 

    Sánchez Balvás, Lizeth Artemisa; Felipe Blanch, José Juan de; Sureda Carbonell, Bàrbara (2011-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    El problema que actualment encaren les ciutats és la linealitat del seu metabolisme, per la qual cosa es fa necessari quantificar els fluxos materials que travessen les economies al llarg del temps a fi d’entendre la relació ...
  • BRIDGE: matching model-based diagnosis from FDI and DX perspectives 

    Travé-Massuyès, Louise; Escobet Canal, Teresa (Springer Nature, 2019-06-22)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    After the introduction section of Chapter 7, section 7.2 first presents a brief overview of the approaches proposed by the FDI and DX model- based diagnosis communities. Although quite commonplace, this overview is neces- ...
  • Fault detection and identification in a fuel cell system 

    Escobet Canal, Antoni; Nebot Castells, M. Àngela (IOS Press, 2009)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work a fault diagnosis system for non-linear plants based on fuzzy logic, called VisualBlock-FIR, is presented and applied to an energy generation system based on fuel cells. VisualBlock-FIR runs under the Simulink ...
  • Influence of ore grade and mineral medium on chalcopyrite bioleaching with mixed microbial consortia 

    Benzal Montes, Eva; Solé Sardans, Maria Montserrat; Lao Luque, Concepción; Morral Molto, Eloi; Gamisans Noguera, Javier; Dorado Castaño, Antonio David (2021-01-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the present work, key parameters in copper bioleaching from chalcopyrite have been investigated at long-term operation. In detail, the type of mixed microbial consortium (origin and adaptation); the composition of two ...
  • Fatigue resistance of press hardened 22MnB5 steels
