    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a procedure for determining unfrozen water saturation in a partially saturated frozen soil (clayey silt) using bulk electrical conductivity (EC) measurements. A modification of Archie’s law is proposed ...
  • 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)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert

    Gallipoli, Domenico; Grassl, P.; Wheeler, Simon; Gens Solé, Antonio (Elsevier, 2018-09)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The net stress plus suction and the average skeleton stress plus modified suction are two alternative sets of energetically consistent stress variables for modelling the hydro-mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils. ...
  • Smart helical structures inspired by the pellicle of euglenids 

    Noselli, Giovanni; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino; DeSimone, Antonio (2019-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper deals with a concept for a reconfigurable structure bio-inspired by the cell wall architecture of euglenids, a family of unicellular protists, and based on the relative sliding of adjacent strips. Uniform sliding ...
