  • Coastal adaptation and uncertainties: the need of ethics for a shared coastal future 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Mösso Aranda, César; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; González Marco, Daniel; Gómez Aguar, Jesús Javier (Frontiers Media, 2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Coastal hydro-morphodynamics present significant uncertainties, one order of magnitude larger for sediment transport than for the driving hydrodynamics. Met-ocean factors (waves, currents and levels essentially) are normally ...
  • Sustainability-oriented multi-criteria analysis of different continuous flight auger piles 

    Josa i Culleré, Irene; Tošić, Nikola; Marinkovic, Snežana; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2021-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    With increasing construction activity and concrete consumption globally, the economic, environmental, and social impacts of human activities continue to increase rapidly. Therefore, it is imperative to assess the choice ...
  • Substrate design to minimize residual stresses in Directed Energy Deposition AM processes 

    Lu, Xufei; Chiumenti, Michele; Cervera Ruiz, Miguel; Li, Junjie; Lin, Xin; Ma, Liang; Zhang, Guohao; Enquan, Liang (Elsevier, 2021-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a strategy to optimize the design of the substrate structures used in Additive Manufacturing (AM) by Directed Energy Deposition (DED) to minimize the residual stresses induced by this fabrication process. ...
  • Nonlinear truss models for strain-based seismic evaluation of planar RC walls 

    Deng, Xianjue; Koutromanos, Ioannis; Murcia Delso, Juan; Panagiotou, Marios (Wiley, 2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper introduces a new approach for the seismic performance evaluation of planar RC walls. Compared to existing assessment guidelines, such as those in ASCE/SEI 41-17, where performance limits are described by plastic ...
  • Neural network-aided prediction of post-cracking tensile strength of fibre-reinforced concrete 

    Ikumi Montserrat, Tai; Galeote Moreno, Eduardo; Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la; López Carreño, Ruben Daniel (2021-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Structural fibres are an effective method to improve concrete post-cracking tensile strength (fctR). Currently, the characterization of this property is mainly performed experimentally. This is a source of uncertainties ...
  • Modeling flexoelectricity in soft dielectrics at finite deformation 

    Codony Gisbert, David; Gupta, Prakhar; Marco Alacid, Onofre; Arias Vicente, Irene (2021-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper develops the equilibrium equations describing the flexoelectric effect in soft dielectrics under large deformations. Previous works have developed related theories using a flexoelectric coupling tensor of mixed ...
  • Hybridisable discontinuous Galerkin formulation of compressible flows 

    Vila Pérez, Jordi; Giacomini, Matteo; Sevilla Cárdenas, Rubén; Huerta, Antonio (2021)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This work presents a review of high-order hybridisable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods in the context of compressible flows. Moreover, an original unified framework for the derivation of Riemann solvers in hybridised ...
  • Topology optimization methods for 3D structural problems: a comparative study 

    Yago Llamas, Daniel; Cante Terán, Juan Carlos; Lloberas Valls, Oriol; Oliver Olivella, Xavier (2021-08-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    The work provides an exhaustive comparison of some representative families of topology optimization methods for 3D structural optimization, such as the Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization (SIMP), the Level-set, the ...
  • Three-dimensional finite element modeling of RC columns subjected to cyclic lateral loading 

    Fawaz, Ghassan; Murcia Delso, Juan (Elsevier, 2021-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a detailed finite element modeling scheme to simulate the cyclic response of RC columns considering low-cycle fatigue and bond-slip of reinforcement. The modeling scheme includes a triaxial constitutive ...
  • In-plane shear strength and damage fragility functions for partially-grouted reinforced masonry walls with bond-beam reinforcement 

    Zhang, Zhiming; Murcia Delso, Juan; Sandoval Mandujano, Cristian Eliseo; Araya-Letelier, Gerardo; Wang, Fenglai (Elsevier, 2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a study on the in-plane shear response of partially-grouted reinforced masonry walls with bond-beam reinforcement. A database of 95 tests on partially-grouted walls made of concrete hollow blocks was ...
  • Beachgoer perceptions on health regulations of COVID-19 in two popular beaches on the Brazilian Amazon 

    Cajueiro Carneiro Pereira, Luci; de Sousa-Felix, Rosigleyse Corrêa; Brito Dias, Ana Beatriz; Coelho Pessoa, Rubem Manoel; Ribeiro Padilha da Silva, Brenda; da Costa Baldez, Carlos Alessandro; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho; Sousa da Silva, Taynara; Ferreira da Silva Assis, Luciane; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2021-06)
