      Estimating robust optimum parameters of tuned mass dampers using multiobjective genetic algorithms  [Presentation]

      Jiménez Alonso, Javier Fernando; Sáez Pérez, Andrés (Víctor Compán Cardiel [etc.], 2015)
      Tuned mass dampers (TMD) are a well-known control device widely used to control the vibratory problem originated by the pedestrian action on footbridges. The main purpose of this study is the robust multi-objective ...

      Model updating of a historical building by using ambient vibration tests : Chapel of the Würzburg Residence (Germany)  [Presentation]

      Compán Cardiel, Víctor Jesús; Pachón García, Pablo; Cámara Pérez, Margarita; Sáez Pérez, Andrés (Víctor Compán Cardiel [etc.], 2015)
      One of the first difficulties that can be detected in finite element models of historical buildings is the high level of uncertainty associated with many factors affecting the actual behaviour of the structure. Often the ...

      Motion-based design of viscous dampers for cable-stayed bridges under uncertainty conditions  [Presentation]

      Naranjo Pérez, Javier; Jiménez Alonso, Javier Fernando; Muñoz Díaz, Iván; Sáez Pérez, Andrés (Editorial Club Universitario, 2019)
      Passive damping devices are widely installed to control the vibration level of stay cables of bridges induced by wind action. The design of passive damping devices must ensure the performance for the all the life-cycle of ...

      Piezoelectric lead-free nanocomposites for sensing applications: the role of CNT reinforced matrices  [Presentation]

      Buroni, Federico Carlos; Krishnaswamy, Jagdish; Rodríguez-Tembleque Solano, Luis; García-Macías, Enrique; García Sánchez, Felipe; Melnik, Roderick; Sáez Pérez, Andrés (Editorial Club Universitario, 2019)
      Piezoelectric materials are employed in a wide range of sensing devices. At present, the vast majority of piezoelectric materials used for industrial applications are ceramic and exhibit a high lead content in their ...

      Self-control of a lively footbridge under pedestrian flow  [Presentation]

      Hernández-Díaz, Alejandro M.; Pérez-Aracil, Jorge; Jiménez Alonso, Javier Fernando; Sáez Pérez, Andrés (Víctor Compán Cardiel [etc.], 2015)
      In this paper, a case study about a lively footbridge is developed; the vibration levels caused by the pedestrian action are controlled by the change of the modal parameters of the structure due to the pedestrian-structure ...
