    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The Conditional Moment Closure (CMC), devised for turbulent combustion modelling, was implemented in the multiphysics code Alya, based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), in the frame of Large Eddy Simulations (LES) for ...
  • Optimization of the progress variable definition using a genetic algorithm for the combustion of complex fuels 

    Both, Ambrus; Mira Martínez, Daniel; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol (MCM, 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this work counterflow diffusion flamelets of n-heptane and air are used at stable and unsteady extinguishing conditions for building a thermo-chemical database for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations. The ...
  • High-fidelity simulations of the mixing and combustion of a technically premixed hydrogen flame 

    Mira Martínez, Daniel; Both, Ambrus; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol; Gomez Gonzalez, Samuel; Forck, Jonathan; Tanneberger, Tom; Stathopoulos, Panagiotis; Paschereit, Christian Oliver (MCM, 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Numerical simulations are used here to obtain further understanding on the flashback mechanism of a technically premixed hydrogen flame operated in lean conditions. Recent work from the authors (Mira et al., 2020) showed ...
  • Semi implicit solver for high fidelity LES/DNS solutions of reacting flows 

    Surapaneni, Anurag; Mira Martínez, Daniel (MCM, 2021)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    A semi-implicit/point-implicit stiff solver (ODEPIM) for integrating chemistry in context of high fidelity LES/DNS simulations is presented. A detailed overview of the algorithm and its numerical formulation is discussed. ...
  • Subdivided linear and curved meshes preserving features of a linear mesh model 

    Jiménez Ramos, Albert; Gargallo Peiró, Abel; Roca Navarro, Francisco Javier (Sandia National Laboratories, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    To provide straight-edged and curved piece-wise polynomial meshes that target a unique smooth geometry while preserving the sharp features and smooth regions of the model, we propose a new fast curving method based on ...
  • Improving object detection in paintings based on time contexts 

    Marinescu, Maria Cristina; Reshetnikov, Artem; More López, Joaquim (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a novel approach to object detection for the Cultural Heritage domain, which relies on combining Deep Learning and semantic metadata about candidate objects extracted from existing sources such as ...
  • Measuring spatial subdivisions in urban mobility with mobile phone data 

    Graells Garrido, Eduardo; Meta, Irene; Serra Burriel, Feliu; Reyes Valenzuela, Patricio Alejandro; Cucchietti, Fernando (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Urban population grows constantly. By 2050 two thirds of the world population will reside in urban areas. This growth is faster and more complex than the ability of cities to measure and plan for their sustainability. To ...
  • Random forest parameterization for earthquake catalog generation 

    Llácer Giner, David; Otero Calviño, Beatriz; Tous Liesa, Rubén; Monterrubio Velasco, Marisol; Carrasco Jiménez, José; Rojas Ulacio, Otilio (Springer, 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    An earthquake is the vibration pattern of the Earth’s crust induced by the sliding of geological faults. They are usually recorded for later studies. However, strong earthquakes are rare, small-magnitude events may pass ...
  • Effect of the actuation on the boundary layer of an airfoil at moderate reynolds number 

    Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol; Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María; Borrell Pol, Ricard (Springer, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Synthetic (zero net mass flux) jets are an active flow control technique to manipulate the flow field in wall-bounded and free-shear flows. The fluid necessary to actuate on the boundary layer is intermittently injected ...
  • Toward an interdisciplinary methodology to solve new (old) transportation problems 

    Graells-Garrido, Eduardo; Peñas-Araya, Vanessa (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The rising availability of digital traces provides a fertile ground for new solutions to both, new and old problems in cities. Even though a massive data set analyzed with Data Science methods may provide a powerful solution ...
  • Parallel SFC-based mesh partitioning and load balancing 

    Borrell Pol, Ricard; Oyarzun Altamirano, Guillermo; Dosimont, Damien; Houzeaux, Guillaume (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Modern supercomputers allow the simulation of complex phenomena with increased accuracy. Eventually, this requires finer geometric discretizations with larger numbers of mesh elements. In this context, and extrapolating ...
  • Urgent supercomputing of earthquakes: use case for civil protection 

    Puente, Josep de la; Rodríguez Rodríguez, Juan Esteban; Monterrubio Velasco, Marisol; Rojas, Otilio (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Deadly earthquakes are events that are unpredictable, relatively rare and have a huge impact upon the lives of those who suffer their consequences. Furthermore, each earthquake has specific characteristics (location, ...
