    This paper presents a method to evaluate the seismic performance of RC walls, based on the local (material) response obtained from computational simulation. The latter relies on a recent implementation of the nonlinear ...
  • Ductile fracture simulation of stainless steel coupons under monotonic tensile forces 

    González de León, Isabel; Arrayago Luquin, Itsaso; Nastri, Elide; Real Saladrigas, Esther (Wilhelm Ernst & Sohn, 2022)
    Conference report

    Due to the acute water scarcity, the consumption of water resources to serve our daily purposes has gone crucial. An ingenious way for rainwater harvesting can help all modern town planners make design arrangements for ...
  • 3D analysis of a fragmental rockfall 

    Ruiz Carulla, Roger; Matas Casado, Gerard; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Lantada, Nieves (Springer Nature, 2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Fragmentation in a rockfall event influence the total number of fragments, the mass distribution, and the impact energies and runouts. Then, the probability of impact and hazard characterization should consider fragmentation. ...

  • Control and monitoring of an unstable slope 

    Mariano, Alessandra di; Gost, Xavier; Gens Solé, Antonio; Álvarez, Eugenia (British Geotechnical Association (BGA), 2022)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    North of the city of Barcelona, a slope adjacent to a road has been showing signs of instability for a few years. In the area object of the present study, the road borders an existing river and its pavement has shown damage ...
  • SDMT testing and its use in the numerical modelling of a deep excavation 

    Mariano, Alessandra di; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio; Amoroso, Sara; Monaco, Paola (Hungarian Geotechnical Society, 2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The role of in situ tests in numerical analyses of deep excavations is investigated. The construction of a metro station in Barcelona required a deep excavation in a densely built urban area. Geological conditions were ...
  • Floating lidar assessment of atmospheric stability in the North Sea 

    Silva, Marcos Paulo Araujo da; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Farré Guarné, Joan; Salcedo Bosch, Andreu; González Marco, Daniel; Peña Diaz, Alfredo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, the 2D parametric-solver algorithm [1] used to assess atmospheric stability from floating Doppler wind lidar (FDWL) measurements is revisited. The algorithm performance is studied using data from IJmuiden ...
