  • Aquifer contracts for groundwater resources planning in the MENA region: a means to support stakeholder participation? 

    Ezbakhe, Fatine; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Groundwater resources play a key role in the water economy of the countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. However, groundwater abstraction is estimated to exceed the annual groundwater recharge in 50% ...
  • Ocean classification of dynamical structures detected by SAR and spectral methods 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Martínez Benjamín, Juan José; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Jorge Sánchez, Juan; Díez Rilova, Margarita; Sekula, Emil (European Space Agency (ESA), 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We discuss a taxonomy of different dynamical featuresin the ocean surface and provide some eddy and frontstatistics, as well as describing some events detected byseveral satellites and even with additional cruise observationsand ...

  • Comparison of continuous and hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin methods in incompressible fluid flow problems 

    Fernández Méndez, Sonia (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A comparison of the computational efficiency between Continuous Galerkin (CG) methods, with Taylor–Hood approximations, and Hybridizable Discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods is presented for the solution of the incompressible ...
  • Coupling of continuous and HDG methods 

    Paipuri, Mahendra; Tiago, Carlos; Fernández Méndez, Sonia (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A coupling strategy between hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) and continuous Galerkin (CG) methods is proposed in the framework of second-order elliptic operators. The coupled formulation is implemented and its ...
  • Models for evaluating shear strength on members with circular cross section 

    Turmo Coderque, José; Ramos Schneider, Gonzalo; Aparicio Bengoechea, Ángel Carlos (International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineers (IABSE), 2019)
    Conference report
