  • Rockfalls: analysis of the block fragmentation through field experiments 

    Gili Ripoll, José Antonio; Ruiz Carulla, Roger; Matas Casado, Gerard; Moya Sánchez, José; Prades Valls, Albert; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Lantada, Nieves; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Buill Pozuelo, Felipe; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Martínez Bofill, Joan; Salo Salgado, Lluis; Mavrouli, Olga Christina (2022-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Fragmentation is a common feature of rockfall that exerts a strong control on the trajectories of the generated blocks, the impact energies, and the runout. In this paper, we present a set of four real-scale rockfall tests ...
  • The effect of temperature, rest periods and ageing on the response of bituminous materials in fatigue tests: considerations and proposals on analytical dimensioning model 

    Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Botella Nieto, Ramón; López Montero, Teresa; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    One of the basic assumptions of analytical dimensioning models of asphalt pavements is failure due to fatigue cracking of the bituminous layers. Furthermore, it is considered that the damaging effects of different traffic ...
  • Structural response of a fibre reinforced concrete pile-supported flat slab: full-scale test 

    Aidarov, Stanislav; Mena Sebastià, Francisco; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la (2021-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The total substitution of traditional reinforcement in the form of steel bars by fibres can be mainly found in elements with favourable boundary conditions and subjected to low-moderate load levels. However, the rigorous ...
  • Phase distribution and properties identification of heterogeneous materials: a data-driven approach 

    Valdés Alonzo, Gabriel Rolando; Binetruy, Christophe; Eck, Benedikt; García González, Alberto; Leygue, Adrien (2022-02-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a new methodology to extend the Data-Driven Identification (DDI) to heterogeneous samples made of multiple elastic materials. By using the Correspondence Analysis (CA) technique to post-process DDI, we ...
  • A new proposal to assess shear fatigue resistance of asphalt pavement interfaces 

    Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Ortiz Ripoll, Jorge; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Botella Nieto, Ramón; Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; López Montero, Teresa (2021-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The degree of adherence between two bituminous layers can be assessed from shear tests carried out at constant displacement speed, which allow the shear strength and stiffness of the interface to be obtained, being usual ...
  • PFEM formulation for thermo-coupled FSI analysis: application to nuclear core melt accident 

    Franci, Alessandro; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Carbonell Puigbó, Josep Maria; Chiumenti, Michele (2017-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this paper is to present a Lagrangian formulation for thermo-coupled fluid–structure interaction (FSI) problems and to show its applicability to the simulation of hypothetical scenarios of a nuclear core melt ...
  • Demand model estimation from smartphone data: an application to assert new urbanistic development scenarios 

    Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Ortigosa Marin, Javier; Alarcón, Xavier; Linares, Maria Paz; Cuatrecasas Capdevila, Marta; Cluet, Jordi (Elsevier, 2022-03-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The pervasive use of mobile devices has brought a valuable new source of data. The work presented here has a twofold objective: firstly, to demonstrate the capability of mobile phone records to feed traditional trip-based ...
  • Capturing rockfall kinematic and fragmentation parameters using high-speed camera system 

    Prades Valls, Albert; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Lantada, Nieves; Matas Casado, Gerard; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo (2022-06-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a procedure for tracking rockfall trajectories and extracting kinematic parameters from both the impacts and the resultant fragments. A set of full scale rockfall experiments was performed in a quarry ...
  • Spatial data infrastructure (SDI) for inventory rockfalls with fragmentation information 

    Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Lantada, Nieves; Martínez llario, Jose (2022-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The fragmentation phenomenon has a significant effect on rockfall risk assessment. This information is difficult to obtain, but it is key to improving rockfall modelling. For this reason, the RockModels team has gathered ...
  • Fatigue analysis of a naval composite structure 

    Jurado Granados, Joel; Martínez García, Javier; Barbu, Lucia Gratiela; Capua, Daniel di (CRC Press, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The use of composite materials in marine industry has many potential benefits, such as lower weight. However, there are still some failure mechanisms, such as fatigue, that are not yet completely under- stood. This work ...
  • A non-oscillatory face-centred finite volume method for compressible flows 

    Vila Pérez, Jordi; Giacomini, Matteo; Sevilla, Rubén; Antonio, Huerta (Elsevier, 2022-03-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents the face-centred finite volume (FCFV) paradigm for the simulation of compressible flows. The FCFV method defines the unknowns at the face barycentre and uses a hybridisation procedure to eliminate all ...
