    We present a stable finite element formulation for the shallow water equations using the finite increment calculus (FIC) procedure. This research is focused on the stability properties of the FIC technique and uses linear ...
  • A simple and effective 1D-element discrete-based method for computational bone remodeling 

    Quexada Rodríguez, Diego; Márquez Flórez, Kalenia; Cerrolaza Rivas, Miguel Enrique; Duque Daza, Carlos; Trabelsi, Olfa; Velasco, M. A.; Ramtani, Salah; Ho-Ba-Tho, Marie Christine; Garzon Alvarado, D. A. (Gordon and Breach Science Publishers, 2022-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    In-silico models applied to bone remodeling are widely used to investigate bone mechanics, bone diseases, bone-implant interactions, and also the effect of treatments of bone pathologies. This paper proposes a new methodology ...
  • Study of the aerodynamic forces on a simplified shape X-43 aircraft under supersonic conditions, design optimization 

    Carós Roca, Lidia; Jané Ippel, Christian; Coma Company, Martí; Pons Prats, Jordi; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria (2020-01-22)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper focuses on the shape optimization, based on the resultant aerodynamic forces, of a simplified X-43 aircraft. The equations of oblique shock waves and Prandtl-Meyer expansion waves, along with the improvement of ...
  • Comparing hysteretic energy and ductility uniform annual failure rate spectra for traditional and a spectral shape-based intensity measure
