      Article
      Open Access
      The ASDEX Upgrade (AUG) programme, jointly run with the EUROfusion MST1 task force, continues to significantly enhance the physics base of ITER and DEMO. Here, the full tungsten wall is a key asset for extrapolating to ...
    • Wildfires vegetation recovery through satellite remote sensing and functional data analysis 

      Serra Burriel, Feliu; Delicado Useros, Pedro Francisco; Cucchietti, Fernando (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-06-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      In recent years, wildfires have caused havoc across the world, which are especially aggravated in certain regions due to climate change. Remote sensing has become a powerful tool for monitoring fires, as well as for measuring ...
    • Measuring and improving the geometric accuracy of piece-wise polynomial boundary meshes 

      Ruiz Gironès, Eloi; Sarrate Ramos, Josep; Roca Navarro, Francisco Javier (2021-10-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      We present a new disparity functional to measure and improve the geometric accuracy of a curved high-order mesh that approximates a target geometry model. We have devised the disparity to account for compound models, be ...
    • Vortex induced vibrations of a pivoted finite height cylinder at low Reynolds number 

      Cajas García, Juan Carlos; Pastrana Maldonado, Daniel; Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol; Houzeaux, Guillaume; Vázquez, Mariano; Treviño Treviño, Cesar (2021-06-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      The vortex induced vibrations (VIVs) of a pivoted cylinder with finite height have been numerically investigated. A mathematical model is introduced and described, and the resulting equations are numerically solved for low ...
    • A review of recent progress in thermoelectric materials through computational methods 

      Gutiérrez Moreno, J. Julio; Cao, Jiang; Fronzi, Marco; Assadi, M. Hussein N. (Springer, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      Reducing our overwhelming dependence on fossil fuels requires groundbreaking innovations in increasing our efficiency in energy consumption for current technologies and moving towards renewable energy sources. Thermoelectric ...
    • A FE2 multi-scale implementation for modeling composite materials on distributed architectures 

      Giuntoli, Guido; Aguilar Mena, Jimmy; Vázquez, Mariano; Oller Martínez, Sergio Horacio; Houzeaux, Guillaume (2019-04-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This work investigates the accuracy and performance of a FE2 multi-scale implementation used to predict the behavior of composite materials. The equations are formulated assuming the small deformations solid mechanics ...
    • A city of cities: Measuring how 15-minutes urban accessibility shapes human mobility in Barcelona 

      Graells Garrido, Eduardo; Serra Burriel, Feliu; Rowe, Francisco; Cucchietti, Fernando; Reyes Valenzuela, Patricio Alejandro (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2021-05-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      As cities expand, human mobility has become a central focus of urban planning and policy making to make cities more inclusive and sustainable. Initiatives such as the “15-minutes city” have been put in place to shift the ...
    • The making of the New European Wind Atlas – Part 2: Production and evaluation 

      Dörenkämper, Martin; Olsen, Bjarke T.; Witha, Björn; Hahmann, Andrea N.; Barcons, Jordi (Copernicus Publications, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      This is the second of two papers that document the creation of the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA). In Part 1, we described the sensitivity experiments and accompanying evaluation done to arrive at the final mesoscale model ...
    • Specific heat effects in two-dimensional shock refractions 

      Martínez Ruiz, Daniel; Huete, Cesar; Martínez Ferrer, Pedro J.; Mira Martinez, Daniel (Springer, 2021)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Compressible mixtures in supersonic flows are subject to significant temperature changes via shock waves and expansions, which affect several properties of the flow. Besides the widely studied variable transport effects ...
    • High order methods for acoustic scattering: Coupling farfield expansions ABC with deferred-correction methods 

      Villamizar, Vianey; Grundvig, Dane; Rojas, Otilio; Acosta, Sebastian (Elsevier, 2020)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Arbitrary high order numerical methods for time-harmonic acoustic scattering problems originally defined on unbounded domains are constructed. This is done by coupling recently developed high order local absorbing boundary ...
    • An extended flame index partitioning for partially premixed combustion 

      Illana, Enric; Mira, Daniel; Mura, Arnaud (Taylor and Francis, 2020)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Compared to partially premixed combustion (or combustion of non-homogeneous reactants in general), fully premixed and diffusion flames represent only two asymptotic limits of combustion modes. However, the deep knowledge ...
