    In this work, layers of a sol-gel hybrid matrix doped with metal oxide nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs) have been deposited on flat samples of AA6061-T6 aluminum alloy using the dip-coating technique, with the aim of obtaining ...
  • Functionalized electrospun fibers for the design of novel hydrophobic and anticorrosive surfaces 

    Rivero Fuente, Pedro Upna; Yurrita Silanes, David; Berlanga Labari, Carlos Upna; Palacio, José; Rodríguez Trías, Rafael Upna (MDPI, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
    In this work, a novel coating was deposited on aluminum alloy samples by using a combination of electrospinning and chemical vapor deposition (CVD-silanization) techniques in order to create a functionalized film with an ...
  • Holographic acoustic tweezers 

    Marzo Pérez, Asier Upna; Drinkwater, Bruce W. (National Academy of Sciences, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
    Acoustic tweezers use sound radiation forces to manipulate matter without contact. They provide unique characteristics compared with the more established optical tweezers, such as higher trapping forces per unit input power ...
  • Determinación de las curvas IDF en Igueldo-San Sebastián. Comparación de diferentes métodos 

    López Rodríguez, José Javier; Delgado Zabala, Oihane; Campo-Bescós, Miguel Upna (Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
    Las curvas de intensidad-duración-frecuencia (IDF) son una herramienta fundamental en ingeniería hidrológica. Se ha partido de la serie de precipitación de 88 años registrada cada diez minutos en la estación meteorológica ...
  • Frequency domain design of a series structure of robust controllers for multi-input single-output systems 

    Gil Martínez, Montserrat; Rico Azagra, Javier; Elso Torralba, Jorge (Hindawi, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
    The regulation of a disturbed output can be improved when several manipulated inputs are available. A popular choice in these cases is the series control scheme, characterized by (1) a sequential intervention of loops and ...
  • Using a coupled dynamic factor-random forest analysis (DFRFA) to reveal drivers of spatiotemporal heterogeneity in the semi-arid regions of southern Africa 

    Southworth, Jane; Bunting, Erin; Zhu, Likai; Ryan, Sadie J.; Herrero, Hannah V.; Waylen, Peter; Muñoz Carpena, Rafael; Campo-Bescós, Miguel Upna; Kaplan, David A. (Public Library of Science, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
    Understanding the drivers of large-scale vegetation change is critical to managing landscapes and key to predicting how projected climate and land use changes will affect regional vegetation patterns. This study aimed to ...
