    En este artículo se muestra el estudio realizado a la Provinciadel Guayas Ecuador, en cuanto a las experiencias de losmunicipios en la implementación de los Planes de Desarrolloy Ordenamiento Territorial (PDOT) y el Índice ...
  • Lagrangian analysis of multiscale particulate flows with the particle finite element method 

    Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Latorre Sánchez, Juan Salvador; Casas González, Guillermo; Rossi, Riccardo; Rojek, Jerzy (Springer, 2014-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a Lagrangian numerical technique for the analysis of flows incorporating physical particles of different sizes. The numerical approach is based on the particle finite element method (PFEM) which blends concepts ...
  • Labeling strategy for evaluating the performance of thin asphalt wearing courses 

    García Gil, Lívia; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Traditional design procedures of asphalt mixtures are based on volumetric parameters and the compliance with the mechanical performance, while functional properties receive less attention. Additionally, even though the ...
  • Leaving no one behind: evaluating access to water, sanitation and hygiene for vulnerable and marginalized groups 

    Ezbakhe, Fatine; Giné Garriga, Ricard; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Elsevier, 2019-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Achieving equitable access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services requires paying special attention to the most disadvantaged segments of the population. Yet, despite all the progress made to evaluate the access ...
  • Shear crack width assessment in concrete structures by 2D distributed optical fiber 

    Rodríguez, Gerardo; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Villalba Herrero, Sergi (Elsevier, 2019-09)
    Article

    This paper outlines the second part of an experimental study to show the capabilities of distributed optical fiber sensors (DOFS) in their application to the structural health monitoring (SHM) of the shear performance of ...
  • Maximum-principle preserving space–time isogeometric analysis 

    Bonilla de Toro, Jesús; Badia, Santiago (2019-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work we propose a nonlinear stabilization technique for convection–diffusion–reaction and pure transport problems discretized with space–time isogeometric analysis. The stabilization is based on a graph-theoretic ...
  • Evaluation of Mallorca Cathedral seismic behavior using different analysis techniques 

    Elyamani, Ahmed; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Caselles Magallón, Josep Oriol; Clapes Boixader, Jaime (University of the Aegean, 2019-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper discusses the seismic assessment of Mallorca cathedral in Spain. This cathedral is an audacious Gothic structure built on the island of Mallorca during 14th-16th centuries, characterized by its large dimensions ...
  • Standard penetration testing in a virtual calibration chamber 

    Zhang, Ningning; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Ciantia, Matteo Oryem; Gens Solé, Antonio; Butlanska, Joanna (Elsevier, 2019-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The virtual calibration chamber technique, based on the discrete element method, is here applied to study the standard penetration test (SPT). A macro-element approach is used to represent a rod driven with an impact like ...
  • Postglacial deformation history of sackungen on the northern slope of Pic d'Encampadana, Andorra 

    McCalpin, James P.; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi (2019-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Slopes undergoing deep-seated gravitational deformation create surface landforms that, if trenched and dated, yield critical data on slope kinematics. The northern slope of Pic d'Encampadana descends steeply 800 m down ...

    Podestá, J.M.; Méndez, C. M.; Toro, Sebastian; Huespe, Alfredo Edmundo (2019-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An analysis of the symmetries characterizing the micro-architecture topologies and the elastic material properties is performed. The goal is to elucidate a systematic procedure that facilitates the design of elastic ...
