    Adequate mechanical properties make stainless steel an excellent construction material for structures. The current stainless steel European structural code EN1993-1-4 (2015) is largely based on provisions given for carbon ...
  • Cyclic loading in vertical stainless steel links 

    Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio; Martínez, Jean (2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Vertical links are dissipative devices in form of beam-column segments that are included in eccentrically braced frames (EBF). Studies related to different configurations of links have been presented for carbon steel ...
  • On the use of systems for tests on stainless steel members and frames aimed at interoperability 

    Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio; Puig i Polo, Càrol; Real Saladrigas, Esther (2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An experimental development of systems for tests on stainless steel members and frames aimed at providing interoperability is presented. In the context of the project PINOX, tests on stainless steel members and frames have ...
  • Effects of unidirectional tensile stresses on punching shear strength of RC slabs 

    Fernández Sánchez, Pablo Gonzalo; Marí Bernat, Antonio Ricardo; Oller Ibars, Eva; Domingo Tarancón, Magí (Féderation Internationale du Béton (fib), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    RC slabs can be subjected to transverse loads and in-plane tensile forces simultaneously, as it occurs in top slabs of continuous box girder bridges at intermediate supports, or in floor slabs supported on columns and ...
  • Mooring fatigue verification of the WindCrete for a 15 MW wind turbine 

    Trubat Casal, Pau; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel; Arramounet, Valentin; Mahfouz, Mohammad Youssef (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    LCOE reduction in FOWTs is heading to larger wind turbines in order to increase power production and capacity. NREL and DTU have recently developed a 15MW reference wind turbine, which can be used to validate the platform ...
  • Flexural stiffness factors for stability design of stainless steel planar frames 

    Shen, Yanfei; Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio (Curran associates, 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The Direct Analysis Method is the primary method for the stability design of carbon steel frames in AISC 360-16. The method refers to a second-order elastic analysis performed on members whose tangent stiffness moduli are ...
  • Data analysis using ARX models applied to static structural health monitoring of the Monastery of Sant Cugat 

    Makoond, Nirvan Chandra; Pelà, Luca; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Roca Fabregat, Pedro (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The church of the monastery of Sant Cugat close to Barcelona is a medieval construction characterized by a complex structural behaviour stemming from the interaction among various structural elements built over different ...
  • Machine-learning model for the determination of macro-scale masonry properties based on a virtual laboratory at micro-scale 

    Kalkbrenner, Philip; Pelà, Luca; Rossi, Riccardo (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    Cutting-edge methods in the computational analysis of structures have been developed over the last decades. Such modern tools are helpful to assess the safety of existing buildings. Multi-scale techniques have been proposed ...
  • Numerical simulation of traditional timber-masonry buildings subjected to lateral loads 

    Jiménez Ramírez, María Belén; Pelà, Luca (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Existing heritage buildings are often composed of diverse structural typologies, representing a challenge for structural analysis. This work investigates the use of nonlinear static analysis to assess the seismic behaviour ...
  • Experimental assessment of shear response of brick masonry retrofitted with TRM 

    Garcia Ramonda, Larisa; Pelà, Luca; Roca Fabregat, Pedro; Camata, Guido (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2021)
    Conference report
