    Article
    Open Access
    Two of the differential characteristics of the AECO sector (architecture, engineering, construction and operation) are barriers for the mass creation of training materials for its workers. On the one hand, the workplace ...
  • A Lagrangian nodal integration method for free-surface fluid flows 

    Franci, Alessandro; Cremonesi, Massimiliano; Perego, Umberto; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2020-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a Lagrangian nodal integration method for the simulation of Newtonian and non-Newtonian free-surface fluid flows. The proposed nodal Lagrangian method uses a finite element mesh to discretize the computational ...
  • Simulations of landslide wave generation and propagation using the particle finite element method 

    Mulligan, Ryan P.; Franci, Alessandro; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Take, William Andrew (Wiley, 2020-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study, the impulse waves generated by highly mobile slides in large-scale flume experiments are reproduced numerically with the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM). The numerical technique combines a Lagrangian ...
  • A fully Lagrangian formulation for fluid-structure interaction problems with free-surface flows and fracturing solids 

    Cornejo Velázquez, Alejandro; Franci, Alessandro; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2021-07)
    Article

    This paper presents a novel coupled formulation for fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems involving free-surface fluid flows, fracture phenomena, solid mutual contact and large displacements. The numerical formulation ...
  • 3D simulation of Vajont disaster. Part 2: multi-failure scenarios 

    Franci, Alessandro; Cremonesi, Massimiliano; Perego, Umberto; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Crosta, Giovanni Battista (2020-12)
    Article

    Prediction of multi-hazard slope stability events requires an informed and judicious choice of the possible scenarios. An incorrect definition of landslide conditions in terms of expected failure volume, material behavior, ...
  • Suitability of seismic isolation for buildings founded on soft soil. Case study of a RC building in Shanghai 

    López Almansa, Francisco; Weng, Dagen; Li, Tao; Alfarah, Bashar (2020-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Base (seismic) isolation is a promising technology for seismic protection of buildings and other constructions. Nowadays, it is accepted that such a technique is efficient and reliable; however, it has two major limitations: ...
  • Physiological and geometrical effects in the upper airways with and without mandibular advance device for sleep apnea treatment 

    Martínez Fernández, Adela; López Muñiz, Alfonso; Soudah Prieto, Eduardo; Calvo Blanco, Juan; Álvarez Suárez, Alberto; Cobo Plana, Juan Manuel; Cobo Díaz, Teresa (Nature, 2020-03-24)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that occurs when the breathing of a person is interrupted during the sleep. This interruption occurs because of the patient has narrowed airways and the upper airways muscles relax, closes ...
  • Partitioned strong coupling of discrete elements with large deformation structural finite elements to model impact on highly flexible tension structures 

    Sautter, Klaus Bernd; Teschemacher, Tobias; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Bucher, Philipp; Bletzinger, Kai Uwe; Wüchner, Roland (Hindawi, 2020-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article presents a staggered approach to couple the interaction of very flexible tension structures with large deformations, described with the finite element method (FEM), and objects undergoing large, complex, and ...
  • 3D simulation of Vajont disaster. Part 1: numerical formulation and validation 

    Franci, Alessandro; Cremonesi, Massimiliano; Perego, Umberto; Crosta, Giovanni Battista; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (2020-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This work presents a numerical method for the simulation of landslides generated impulse waves and its application to the historical Vajont case study. The computational tool is based on the Particle Finite Element Method ...

  • Systemized structural predesign method for selective racks 

    Bové Tous, Oriol; Casafont Ribera, Miguel; Ferrer Ballester, Miquel; López Almansa, Francisco; Roure Fernández, Francisco (2020-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a simplified stability-based method for practical structural predesign of down-aisle unbraced frames of selective racks. Given the uniformity of actual racks, only a single upright and its adjoining ...
