    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 ...
  • Ground movement control in the construction of a new metro line in Barcelona 

    Gens Solé, Antonio; Mariano, Alessandra di; Gesto Beiroa, José Manuel; Schwarz, H (CRC Press, 2005)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Ground movement control is of paramount importance in the construction of a new Metro line in Barcelona given the large diameter of the excavation and the need to cross heavily built areas. A variety of construction ...
  • Laboratory test to study the effect of comminution in rockfalls 

    Matas Casado, Gerard; Parra, E.; Lantada, Nieves; Gili Ripoll, José Antonio; Ruiz Carulla, Roger; Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Moya Sánchez, José; Prades Valls, Albert; Buill Pozuelo, Felipe; Núñez Andrés, María Amparo; Puig i Polo, Càrol (2021)

    Montserrat Mountain is located near Barcelona in Catalonia, at the north-east cornerof Spain, and its massif is formed by conglomerate interleaved by siltstone/sandstone withsteep slopes very prone to rock ...
  • Temperature and loading rate susceptibility of bituminous mixtures on monotonic testing 

    Botella Nieto, Ramón; Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; López Montero, Teresa (International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM), 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The loading rate and temperature susceptibility of bituminous materials is of great importance. Their modulus and phase angle are strongly affected by any change of these two variables. For that reason, many researchers ...
  • A simplified approach to account for directionality effects on 2D dynamic soil-structure interaction analysis 

    Pinzón Ureña, Luis; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Alva Bañuelos, Rodrigo Esteban; Mánica Malcom, Miguel Ángel (CRC Press, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, a simplified approach to account for directionality effects on twodimensional (2D) dynamic soil-structure interaction analyses (DSSI) is proposed. When an earthquake is recorded, the direction with the maximum ...
