Presentation of PILEDYN: a boundary element - finite element software package for PILE group linear DYNamic analysis (
This paper aims at studying the influence of the nature and direction of incidence of impinging seismic waves on the dynamic response of arch dams. A model for the seismic excitation is proposed in which the three free-field accelerograms defining the seismic input signal at ground surface are generated by different sets of simultaneous obliquely-i...
An analysis of the influence that reservoir levels and bottom sediment properties (especially on the degree of saturation) have on the dynamic response of arch dams is carried out. For this purpose, a Boundary Element Model developed by the authors that allows the direct dynamic study of problems that incorporate scalar (dammed up water), viscoelas...
This paper describes a comprehensive experimental study of the influence of the geometrical and mechanical properties of polypropylene fibres on the fracture parameters and ductility of low, normal, and high-strength fibre-reinforced concrete. Three-point bending tests were carried out on 88 notched beams using the simplified boundary effect method...
A three-dimensional boundary element model is presented for the computation of time-harmonic dynamic stiffness coefficients of piles and pile groups embedded in two-phase poroelastic soils. Piles are modelled as continuum elastic solids and soil as a fluid-filled poroelastic half-space governed by Biot’s theory. Piles are bonded to the surrounding...
Conference Paper
We describe a high performance/low price "computer cluster" named Beowulf Cluster. This kind of device was initially developed by T. Sterling and D. Becker (N.A.S.A.) and it is a kind of cluster built primarily out of commodity hardware components, running an OSS (Open Source Software) operating system like Linux or FreeBSD, interconnected by a pri...
