    Sub-Saharan Africa has recently undergone, or still do in many countries, a period of transport infrastructure expansion. Current policies are centred on the development of international links, which require large ...
  • Magnetobiochronology of Lower Pliocene marine sediments from the lower Guadalquivir Basin: insights into the tectonic evolution of the Strait of Gibraltar area 

    Pérez Asensio, José Noel; Larrasoaña Gorosquieta, Juan Cruz; Samankassou, Elias; Salvany Duran, Josep Maria (2018-11)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The Gibraltar Arc is a complex tectonic region, and several competing models have been proposed to explain its evolution. We studied the sedimentary fill of the Guadalquivir Basin to identify tectonic processes that were ...

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The use of composite floor slabs is well established and provides an opportunity to promote the use of visually exposed composite slabs. Stainless steels, with the combination of good mechanical properties and excellent ...
  • Sensor placement for combined sewer system monitoring in the Besòs river basin 

    Cosco, C.; Cugueró Escofet, Miquel Àngel; Tàsies, F.; Aguiló Martos, Pere; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (2018-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper, a sensor placement methodology for sewer systems monitoring in order to measure direct discharge to the river during intense rainfall events is presented. During these events, Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) ...

    The objective of ITER is to build a new Tokamak, with the goal of demonstrating the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power. The First Wall Panels are the inner component of the reactor, built with different ...
  • Construction possibilities for monolithic concrete spar buoy serial production 

    Molins i Borrell, Climent; Yagüe Martín, Adrián; Trubat Casal, Pau (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2018-11)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The monolithic nature of Windcrete, that sees floater, transition piece and tower as a single concrete structure, has direct impact on its potential construction process. The large-draft spar-buoy, to be fully completed ...
  • Monotonic and cyclic testing of clay brick and lime mortar masonry in compression
