    Conference report
    Open Access
    The instrumental monitoring of torrential catchments is a fundamental research task and provides necessary information to improve our understanding on the mechanisms of debris flows. While most monitoring sites include ...
  • Simulating the hydrodynamics of sewer-grates using a 2D-hydraulic model 

    Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (Société Hydrotechnique de France (SHF), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Sewer inlets are one of the most important elements for avoiding floods in urban areas, capturing runoff and introducing into the sewer system. Traditionally the inlets have been designed by resistance criteria, without ...
  • New tools to assess the Suitability Physical Habitat (SPH) and the Weighted Usable Area (WUA) for fishes 

    Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Vericat Querol, Damià; Palau Ibars, Antoni (Société Hydrotechnique de France (SHF), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    The assessment of the Suitability of Physical Habitat (SPH) and the Weighted Usable Area (WUA) for fishes has been traditionally performed by means of simple habitat models based on experimental campaigns. In parallel with ...
