Background:

Over the last 150 years, the advancement of scientific knowledge has led the field of engineering to progressively evolve from its civil and military origins, giving rise to the various areas of specialisation that exist today. In an increasingly globalised world, and especially in Europe, where a broad process of integration and convergence in higher education is under way, it makes sense for engineering to redefine its disciplines to achieve better social practice and facilitate specialised problem solving.

The current programme is heir to the doctoral courses first offered in the 1975-1976 academic year. With the passing of the Organic Law on University Reform in 1984, doctoral programmes came under the responsibility of university departments. Despite the trend towards specialisation, under a delegation agreement, the School’s teaching departments decided to maintain one cross-disciplinary doctoral programme: Civil Engineering. In recent years, the programme has coexisted with the specific programmes of the various departments. This cross-disciplinary character and the involvement of various departments is also reflected in the composition of the Doctoral Studies Committee, whose functions at the School are performed by the Research and Postgraduate Committee. The doctoral programme in Civil Engineering currently offered is an interdepartmental programme organised around six broad areas of knowledge: structural engineering and construction, geotechnical engineering, water engineering, transport engineering and regional planning, environmental engineering and sustainability, and computational engineering.

In this context, the doctoral degree in Civil Engineering offers a framework for pursuing research in the field of civil engineering, rounding out the course offering of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering in the three cycles of higher education (bachelor’s, master's and doctoral level). The doctoral programme in Civil Engineering offered by the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering has received the Pathway to Excellence award (MEE2011-0447 – 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013).

The School’s commitment to research is also reflected in the existence of the Research and Postgraduate Studies Committee. The Committee is chaired by the assistant director of Research and Postgraduate Studies of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering, who also acts as the coordinator of the doctoral programme. The other members of the Committee are the director of postgraduate studies; nine full-time doctoral degree-holding professors, including representatives of the School’s teaching departments and the relevant areas of knowledge (structural engineering and construction, geotechnical engineering, water engineering, transport engineering and regional planning, environmental engineering and sustainability, and computational engineering); a representative of students enrolled in the doctoral programme, appointed from among those elected to the Doctoral School Board; and the head of management services of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering.

Over the years that it has been offered, the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering has attracted both domestic and international students. The recognition of the prestige of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering by its students, the quality of doctoral theses produced, and the excellence of teaching and research staff have led the Spanish Ministry of Education to officially recognise the quality of the doctoral programme in successive years since 2004.

Objectives:

To complete students’ training in the topics their research will focus on. To train students in research on subjects related to civil engineering by developing their knowledge of information sources and experimental and bibliographic research tools. To introduce students to methods for making advances in engineering research by identifying unresolved problems and providing students with the knowledge and skills needed to propose solutions to them.

Rationale for the programme:

The doctoral programme in Civil Engineering is needed for two key reasons. First, the programme serves as an umbrella for cross-disciplinary research in the field of civil engineering that cannot be classified within a single specialisation (though specialised research can also be carried out within the framework of the programme). Second, the programme accommodates research topics that do not fit into any classical area, including topics related to instrumentation and experimentation, certain numerical approaches, and areas that are tangentially related to civil engineering.

The doctoral programme in Civil Engineering aims to support students in the acquisition and generation of advanced, highly specialised knowledge in the field of civil engineering in which they choose to pursue their research. To provide students with advanced training in research techniques based on scientific principles generally accepted by the scientific community. To produce doctoral theses that make a high-quality scientific contribution in the student’s area of specialisation and are of relevance in the field of civil engineering or the sciences that underpin the discipline. To disseminate the research work done through scientific publications in all areas. To develop techniques that facilitate continuous improvement with respect to projects, decision-making and the execution of works of civil engineering. To produce doctoral graduates in Engineering who are qualified to take up higher-level management positions in the productive fabric. To produce doctoral graduates who are able to make scientific contributions in their area of expertise in the immediate future and constantly acquire and renew their knowledge in order to remain at the forefront of their discipline in terms of international recognition.

Traditionally, the doctoral programme has been organised into two periods: one focusing on training and the other on research. Currently, in line with legislation in force, the period we have called “training” corresponds to the period of study to earn a master’s degree. During what we have called the “research” period, following completion of the training period, students continue their studies at the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering. In this stage, they work on a doctoral thesis based on specific lines of research, within the framework of a research group made up mainly of professors and researchers at the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering.

The doctoral programme in Civil Engineering offered by the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering provides further training in research areas related to the civil engineering profession and develops the competencies defined in the professional profile for civil engineering that require synergistic integration of knowledge and skills acquired through training in physics and mathematics and in scientific and technical fields. The programme forms part of the postgraduate course offering of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering.


The doctoral programme in Civil Engineering enables students to pursue research aimed at improving planning, design, construction, conservation and monitoring of civil infrastructures, as well as research related to architectural constructions, urbanism and regional planning.


General information

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the scientific field of the programme, there are a wide range of degrees that qualify applicants for admission. For the near future, the applicants considered most suitable for admission to the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering will be bachelor’s degree holders with a scientific and technological background who have completed a master's degree in Civil Engineering or one related to the scientific field of the programme (i.e. in structural engineering and construction, geotechnical and earthquake engineering, water and environmental engineering, maritime engineering, transport engineering and regional planning, environmental engineering and sustainability, or computational engineering).


In addition to having suitable academic qualifications, it is considered important that applicants have certain personal characteristics—namely, an interest in the research projects carried out within the framework of the programme; critical and analytical skills; initiative, perseverance and persistence in their academic work; the ability to work in a team; and the ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.

Therefore, to gain admission to the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering for the research period of their studies, applicants must submit:

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years.

When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the requirement to complete this minimum period of study.

Temporary disability leave and leave for the birth of a child, adoption or fostering for the purposes of adoption, temporary foster care, risk during pregnancy or infant feeding, gender violence and any other situation provided for in current regulations do not count towards these periods. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which must inform the Doctoral School.

Doctoral candidates may request periods of temporary withdrawal from the programme for up to a total of two years. Requests must be justified and addressed to the academic committee responsible for the programme, which will decide whether or not to grant the candidate's request.

Extension of studies
If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

Legal framework

Admission criteria and merits assessment

The Doctoral Programme Committee is responsible for deciding which students are admitted to the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering based on each applicant’s curriculum vitae and how well their thesis proposal aligns with the research areas of the programme. Students may be admitted on the condition that they complete bridging courses (determined on a case-by-case basis) offered within the framework of the official postgraduate programme or other official programmes.

Before presenting their doctoral thesis, students must successfully complete any bridging courses specified as a condition for admission.

Students admitted to the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering will be attached to one of the research areas for the programme and assigned a thesis supervisor.

Admission decisions will be made based on each applicant’s curriculum vitae (with particular consideration to their academic record during the training period, ability to work in a team, and participation in research projects, conferences and publications), the degree of alignment between their doctoral thesis proposal and the research areas of the programme, and the extent to which a research group has made a commitment to fund the applicant’s work on their thesis.

All procedures related to academic administration will be governed by the UPC’s General Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies, approved by the Office of the Vice-Rector for Research.

Admission criteria and weighting
Degrees that qualify applicants for direct admission (no bridging courses required):
• Master's degree in Civil Engineering
 • A master's degree related to the scientific field of the programme

Degrees that qualify applicants for admission subject to successful completion of bridging courses:
There is no group of degrees for which it is possible to define specific bridging courses. If the Doctoral Programme Committee decides to admit an applicant with a master's degree that is not one of those which qualify applicants for direct admission, it will specify the bridging courses that the student must complete.

In general, the Committee will base its decisions on the following criteria:
• Academic record (weighting of 60%)
• Motivation (20%)
• Knowledge of languages (10%)
• Research experience (10%)

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme may require that doctoral students pass specific bridging courses. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.

Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits.

Taking into account the doctoral student activity report, the academic committee for the programme may propose measures that complement those specified in these regulations and which result in doctoral students who do not meet the specified requirements being excluded from the programme.

Master’s subjects are considered bridging courses. The completion of master’s subjects—each with its own specific objectives, methods and assessment processes—will enable students to acquire the competencies defined in the second section of this document.

The degrees listed below qualify applicants for direct admission to the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering. Holders of these degrees do not need to take any bridging courses.
• Master's degree in Civil Engineering
• A master’s degree related to the scientific field of the programme

With respect to admission to the doctoral programme in Civil Engineering, there is no group of degrees for which it is possible to define specific bridging courses.

If the Doctoral Programme Committee decides to admit an applicant with a master's degree that is not one of those which qualify applicants for direct admission, it will specify the bridging courses that the student must complete.

The bridging courses required will be selected from among those included on the curriculum of the master’s degree in Civil Engineering offered by the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

Permanence

The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

Learning resources

The Barcelona School of Civil Engineering is located on the North Campus of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). The campus is also home to two other schools (the Barcelona School of Telecommunications Engineering and the Barcelona School of Informatics), the twenty teaching departments of these schools, and many research centres and other university services.


The North Campus is a modern, dynamic campus with excellent transport links. Located within the urban fabric of the city, the 147,500-m² space has a modular structure consisting of 36 buildings that house common spaces shared by all of the units based on the campus. The following is a list of shared spaces and some of the services offered at the campus:

• Wi-Fi service
• Six classroom modules
• Computer rooms
• Laboratories
• Rector Gabriel Ferraté Library
• Sports centre
• Health surveillance and promotion centre
• International Mobility Office
• Disability care programme
• Student residences
• Car parks
• Parking (Comsa)
• Student Union
• Coordination and security centre
• Shopping area
• Eateries
• Centre for Sustainability

The classrooms currently assigned to the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering are located in six of the North Campus teaching modules. These modules are used exclusively for teaching and are shared with the other schools based on the campus.

The six North Campus modules used for teaching currently have a total of 86 classrooms and two drawing rooms. They occupy 7,871 m² and have a capacity of 13,400 students (6,700 students at one time; morning and afternoon sessions). The assignment of classrooms to schools is reviewed and updated each academic year so that adjustments can be made based on the types of classroom, equipment and capacity required to deliver degree programmes. The Barcelona School of Civil Engineering currently has three assigned classroom buildings (A1, A2 and A3), which house 27 classrooms of various types with a total capacity of 1,974 students (divided between morning and afternoon sessions). All of these classrooms have video projectors, projection screens, Wi-Fi and video.


Classroom buildings on the North Campus have multipurpose spaces designed to accommodate the teaching-learning methods required for new university programmes, such as those now taught at the School. Furnishing therefore include fixed chairs with writing tablets as well as movable tables and chairs.

In addition to the teaching spaces in the classroom buildings, the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering has two classrooms located in its own buildings, with a total capacity of 150. If necessary, each of these classrooms can be split into two to create a total of four classrooms, each with a capacity of 30 to 40. These classrooms, like those in the classroom buildings, are equipped with projection screens, Wi-Fi, and video and overhead projectors.

The Barcelona School of Civil Engineering also has a study room in buildings B0 and C1.

The School has six computer classrooms with a total of 160 workstations that include audiovisual equipment (video projector and projection screen). This translates into roughly one workstation for every 16 students. All classrooms are equipped with computers with the programmes needed for the educational activities that students and professors in each degree programme must carry out. Classrooms are used for teaching and must be booked in advance by academic staff. When no teaching activity is scheduled, classrooms are freely accessible (during regular opening hours). One of the classrooms is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the exclusive use of students who wish to carry out activities related to their teaching duties. This classroom is equipped with two laser printers for printing teaching materials. All workstations in computer classrooms have an internet connection. Wireless connections are available in all buildings and spaces of the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering, including classroom buildings, the library and open spaces on campus, for use by students and other members of the UPC community.

The School has specific laboratories for research and teaching in the field of civil engineering. Laboratories are located between the School’s teaching departments. Laboratories and workshops have specialised equipment for teaching purposes and for carrying out research projects linked to the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering and the doctoral degree in Civil Engineering.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis aims towards the understanding and optimization of Additive Manufacturing (AM) components through the application of accurate computational multiscale simulations. The research is guided by three primary objectives: (1) the development of a multiscale orthotropic material model tailored for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) components, (2) the formulation of an optimization strategy to enhance the mechanical performance of FFF parts, and (3) the comprehensive characterization and modeling of their failure mechanisms.To address the first objective, a printing pattern-based orthotropic material model in the framework of multiscale analysis is constructed. This model accounts for the intricate interactions occurring at both filament and component scales in FFF, offering a nuanced representation of the material's behavior. By bridging these scales, the model ensures a comprehensive understanding of the mechanical response of FFF parts, enabling accurate predictions of their performance and failure modes.The second objective focuses on the optimization of the mechanical performance of FFF components. Leveraging the developed multiscale material model, an optimization strategy based on a novel statistics-based algorithm and an orthotropic failure criterion is formulated. The computational domain generation strategy is also tackled, analyzing different approaches and taking advantage of an Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) technique to reduce the computational cost of the simulations. The developed methodology is fully embedded into the AM workflow.The final objective involves the characterization and modeling of the different failure mechanisms present in FFF parts. The different failure modes exhibited by FFF components are identified for each printing pattern present in the component, and a Mechanism-Based (MB) damage criterion is developed to model their stiffness degradation. In addition, an MB cracking model that accounts for the orthotropic brittleness of FFF parts is presented and validated against experimental tests.The central motivation driving this thesis is to alleviate the dependency on costly experimental procedures for characterizing and/or predicting the mechanical behavior of FFF components by performing high-precision and inexpensive multiscale simulations. The outcomes of this study aim to improve the current Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) guidelines.

    Thesis abstract: This study offers a comprehensive understanding of the hydrological dynamics of the Magdalena River (MR) basin, located in Colombia. Multiple elements that affect streamflow were analyzed, such as climate-forcing drivers and human-induced ones, to understand the complex interactions that shape the region's hydrology.Firstly, the influence of many factors on the flow of water downstream of the Magdalena River was studied. The research identified El Niño southern oscillation (ENSO) episodes as crucial climate-forcing drivers and human-induced modifications such as reservoir evaporation. The complex nature of streamflow changes over time was highlighted by showing the variations in the average, volume, and maximum streamflow, as well as oscillations in evaporation and minimum streamflow, especially during positive ENSO episodes. These findings offer important insights into the changing hydrological regime of the MR basin, emphasizing the complex combination of elements that influence its flow patterns throughout time.Moreover, the study explored the hydrological connection between the MR and the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta (CGSM) wetland, revealing the interdependence of these two ecosystems. For this, the study explores the vulnerability of downstream habitats, especially wetlands, to changes in streamflow inputs by taking a broad approach that views the entire wetland as a unified unit. It identified crucial threshold ranges where the inflow from the Magdalena River to the CGSM becomes uncertain. This analysis highlights the urgent need to understand the interactions between water flow and wetland ecosystems and their significant impact. Furthermore, the present research utilizes Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) neural network models to predict streamflow changes at the Calamar gauging station. The goal was to improve the precision of streamflow predictions by combining data from several gauging stations and reservoir evaporation records. Finally, this study can help enhance the comprehension of the intricate hydrological processes in the MR basin, revealing the interconnected effects of climate fluctuations, human actions, and ecosystem dynamics. In this context, this research sets the foundation for creating well-informed water resource management strategies in Colombia that protect wetland ecosystems' ecological health and adaptability in the face of ongoing environmental changes.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis develops a framework to perform shape optimization under uncertainties for a body under the action of aerodynamic forces. The solution of the flow is performed with finite elements using the full potential equation with an embedded approach, where the object of study is defined implicitly with a level set function. The optimization problem is solved by combining different software packages to perform the solution of the flow, advance in the optimization loop and perform uncertainty quantification. The first contribution of the thesis is the development of a full embedded approach for the solution of the full potential equation. Due to the inviscid hypothesis of potential solvers, these require the definition of a gap in the computational mesh in order to generate lift, known as the wake. Based on previous works where the wake is defined implicitly with an embedded approach, this work also considers the geometry as an embedded body. Mesh refinement and numerical terms are employed to improve the definition of the geometry in the mesh and ensure the definition of the Kutta condition. The solver is validated for two and three dimensions for subsonic and transonic flows with different reference data. Another contribution of the thesis is the development of the adjoint analysis for the subsonic full potential equation with embedded geometries in two dimensions. Each coordinate of the object of study is considered a design parameter in the adjoint analysis, where the effect of the level set function is considered. The sensitivities of the objective function with respect to the design parameters are validated by comparing them to the sensitivities obtained by using a finite differences approach. A shape optimization problem where the lift coefficient is maximized with geometrical constraints is solved as an example of application of the adjoint sensitivities. The embedded shape optimization problem is extended to consider uncertainties in the inlet condition. The optimization problem is reformulated by choosing a risk measure, the Conditional Value-at-risk, which is minimized. The adjoint sensitivities are adapted for the stochastic case, considering the selected risk measure. The estimation of the risk measure is performed thanks to an external uncertainty quantification library, by applying a novel approach which uses Monte Carlo methods to estimate the Conditional Value-at-risk. The stochastic case is solved in a distributed environment, where each optimization step deploys a Monte Carlo hierarchy to estimate the objective function and its gradients.

    Thesis abstract: Interferometry with Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) is a remote sensing technique to measure displacements of the observed surface, either the ground or any structure on it. Although the systematic acquisition of SAR data from satellites started in the 1990s, InSAR is a technique still in development. The continuous improvement of the successive SAR satellite constellations in terms of reliability, revisit time, spatial resolution and data accessibility, and the processing techniques of SAR data in the estimation of surface displacements is improving the performance of InSAR. Thus, this doctoral thesis aims to explore the new opportunities that InSAR offers today. In particular, the objectives are, first, to explore novel contributions of InSAR in geological engineering, more specifically, in land monitoring and the hydrogeological characterisation of the ground; and, second, to do so while covering both qualitative and quantitative applications at both regional and local scales. These goals are addressed through four questions. The first question aims to investigate whether InSAR¿s spatial resolution and precision are high enough today to monitor ground deformation at such a local scale and in such a changing environment as a construction site. Applied to the ground deformation induced by the dewatering of civil engineering works, InSAR provides a much more complete view and understanding of the observed phenomena than more common alternative techniques such as levelling. However, levelling usually provides more precise measurements. Thus, a combination of both techniques will improve and make the monitoring of civil engineering works more reliable. The second question is whether, because of its spatial data density and its precision, InSAR is suitable for the numerical modelling of extensive ground deformation phenomena. The results achieved thanks to InSAR data in the hydromechanical numerical modelling of regional and long-term ground subsidence related to the overexploitation of confined aquifers prove to be significantly better than the results obtained with other data sources. InSAR data can, first, cover the whole extent of the aquifer system and identify several different deformation phenomena and, second, improve the design of the numerical models and the calibration of the ground parameters, thus achieving a significantly better reproduction and understanding of the observed ground subsidence that enable the design of more adequate and effective policies for land planning and the management of (ground)water resources. The third question turns to a novel InSAR technique: coherence change detection (CCD), a method to detect and map, under certain conditions, changes in the observed surface. In particular, the question is whether InSAR coherence can indeed remotely detect torrential sediment transport events in arid environments. The conclusion is that InSAR coherence is not only able to detect the occurrence of such events but shows a greater detection capacity than the meteorological data, being much more operative and economical than field campaigns. Finally, the fourth question is whether InSAR coherence can remotely map these events, aiming to evaluate the uncertainty that other factors that may also affect InSAR coherence introduce in the CCD maps. The comparison of several mapping methods with different sensitivity to each component of the coherence changes show that CCD methods are able to locate the areas affected by such events, although rugged areas require a thorough analysis and the precise delimitation of the affected areas still presents some uncertainty. All in all, despite the weaknesses that are still to be resolved, InSAR already offers valuable contributions to geological engineering.

    Thesis abstract: Induced seismicity due to hydraulic stimulation and circulation is a hurdle for the development of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). The monitored seismicity has occasionally reached magnitudes large enough to be felt by local populations, and in several EGS cases the largest magnitude earthquakes occur few hours to several months after the cessation of the injection operations. This thesis aims to i) deepen the understanding of the processes that trigger such induced seismicity, ii) improve forecasting methodologies and iii) explore strategies to mitigate its occurrence. The focus is especially placed on post-injection seismicity. The well-documented case of Basel EGS, Switzerland, is adopted as verification example.Firstly, the identification of the triggering mechanisms at Basel is performed making use of a coupled hydro-mechanical model with increasing level of complexity. A simple fault-crossed elastic domain is compared with a homogeneous elastic domain to highlight the importance of structural heterogeneities on the direct and indirect (poroelastic) effects of pressure diffusion as triggering mechanisms of seismicity. Additionally, another hydro-mechanical model is implemented by a discrete faulting network, based on seismic interpretations. The model simulates the plastic reactivations of faults, and the effects of pore pressure diffusion, poroelastic stressing, shear-slip stress transfer and slip weakening are distinguished. Simulation results show that the faults located in the vicinity of the injection well fail during injection, mainly triggered by pore pressure build-up. At the stop of injection, poroelastic stress relaxation leads to the immediate rupture of faults that were stabilized during the injection. Stress redistribution is also a prominent triggering mechanisms of post-injection reactivation of distant faults. Slip-induced friction weakening on certain faults amplifies the potential of these faults to reactivate multiple time during injection and after its stop.The development of a forecasting methodology for induced seismicity is the second major achievement of this thesis. The hydro-mechanical model previously implemented is combined with a seismicity rate model, the Gutenberg-Richter law and the Epidemic Type Aftershock Sequence model to quantify the seismicity magnitude, of both mainshocks and aftershocks, associated to the stress changes due to fluid injection. The application of this hybrid methodology on the discrete-faulted hydro-mechanical model of Basel EGS gives the opportunity to explore the effects of different strategies of injection on the enhancement of fault permeability and induced seismicity rate. A constant injection protocol followed by a progressive decrease of injection rate mitigates post-injection seismicity, while enhancing the permeability of the faults in the domain. The thesis also addresses the discussion of the final cessation of injection, comparing the results of shut-in and bleed-off of the well. Results suggest that shutting-in the well can mitigate better early post-injection seismicity than bleeding-off the well, but pore pressure diffusion can destabilize critically-oriented faults in the reservoir for a longer period of time.By providing enhanced understanding, new methodologies and practical solutions, this thesis represents a substantial step-forward in the mitigation and control of induced seismicity, and in particular of post-injection seismicity, in EGS.

    Thesis abstract: In the realm of Computer-Aided Engineering applied to fast solid dynamics, the intricate mechanical behaviours exhibited by materials when subjected to strong dynamic forces, high speed impacts and complex interactions is modelled efficiently and with high fidelity. Employed in diverse fields such as aerospace, automotive, defence and more, the principal interest is to simulate and comprehend the responses of solids, providing insights into stress propagation and deformation patterns. However, the pursuit of such ambitious goals faces inherent limitations: the accurate representation of material behaviours is an ongoing challenge, and the intricate interplay between simulation accuracy and computational efficiency demands thoughtful insights. More specifically, the chosen kinematics paradigm and the discretisation of the continuum often restrict numerical frameworks in the array of problems they can simulate. Simulations in fast solid dynamics may feature locking, numerical instabilities, checker-boarding, or other difficulties related to the nonlinear nature of the equations at stake.In the objective to address the aforementioned shortcomings, this thesis will build on the set of equations by developing a new mixed formulation based on first-order hyperbolic equations and written with the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian viewpoint. That approach, used here to describe solid bodies, aims at circumventing bottlenecks of Lagrangian and Eulerian methods by distinguishing the behaviour of the mesh from the evolution of the continuum. Moreover, an intuitive aspect of the ALE method is to have the mesh move in such a way that large distortions are reduced (numerical advantage) while maintaining a representation of the material's physical behaviour that is either comparable or surpassing the results obtained with classical methodologies (better simulation outcome). A key feature will be the presentation of an ALE computational framework where the mesh motion relies on a conservation law, and the geometry is therefore automatically updated without the need of an ad hoc procedure.An acoustic Riemann solver based on upwinding stabilisation, as well as a linear gradient reconstruction, will be used to counteract instabilities brought by the Vertex-Centred Finite Volume Method employed in the framework, and to enhance the overall accuracy. The nonlinear hardening laws will be solved using a Newton-Raphson algorithm. The new framework introduced in this work will be implemented from scratch on the open-source platform OpenFOAM, a tool of choice in industrial and academic environments. The time integration will be tackled by the multi-stage Total Variation Diminishing Runge-Kutta method. Eventually, the robustness and accuracy of the novel computational framework will be examined through a series of challenging numerical examples involving complex body deformations, as well as plastic and thermal considerations.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis covers the development of large-scale numerical methods for the simulations of partial differential equations on arbitrarily complex geometries. The target application of this thesis is the structural simulation of buildings and civil infrastructures, in which lightweight and aesthetical demands usually increase the complexity of their geometries. In these applications, empirical experimentation is often not feasible during the design loop. Thus, we rely on numerical simulations to predict the performance of these shapes under realistic loads, e.g., wind loads that increase the complexity with the sophistication of the geometry. Current simulation tools are based on unstructured body-fitted meshes. The generation of unstructured meshes is time-consuming and involves human intervention. Furthermore, body-fitted methods cannot efficiently exploit modern high performance computing resources. The main goal of this thesis is to design novel simulation tools for rapid, accurate, and automated solutions of partial differential equations on geometries described by computer-aided design. Thus, we aim for a framework that combines (1) an automated pipeline from computer-aided design to finite element analysis, (2) a novel space-time formulation for moving geometries, and (3) a scalable implementation for high performance computing resources. Our developments are accessible through open-source software within the Gridap ecosystem and FEMPAR packages (written in Julia and Fortran, respectively).The contributions of this thesis increase the functionality of state-of-the-art unfitted (or immersed or embedded) finite element methods. These methods utilize structured background meshes to solve partial differential equations on complex domains. In the literature, these domains are implicitly represented by level sets. To address this limitation, (1) we developed a robust algorithm that solves problems on domains described by linear boundary representations. This algorithm is based on robust polyhedra clipping algorithms. We have tested the algorithm against all the analysis-ready geometries (STL files) in the Thingi10k dataset (almost 5,000). We have extended this algorithm to high-order boundary representations. In this extension, we utilize Bernstein-Bézier basis and multi-variate root-finding algorithms. We validate the resulting method with analytical benchmarks and real-world geometries from computer-aided design files. Then, (2) we formulated an unfitted space-time finite element framework for moving explicit geometries. In this formulation, we utilized space-only meshes, circumventing the need for 4D geometrical algorithms. In turn, we developed a transfer method for evaluating the initial values at each time slab. The results matched with analytical analysis and external numerical experiments. Furthermore, we have demonstrated the applicability of fluid problems on rotating complex (2D and 3D) geometries.Finally, (3) we proposed the acceleration of the methods of this thesis through highly scalable algorithms. These algorithms tackle the bottlenecks of parallelization of the intersection algorithms. We have demonstrated the scalability of these algorithms over one billion cells and 12,000 cores. Furthermore, we can combine these algorithms with adaptive mesh refinement techniques to reduce the computational cost further. These tools provide the means to significantly accelerate the design-to-simulation pipeline while increasing the fidelity of the results.

    Thesis abstract: Geological Carbon Storage (GCS) holds immense promise for mitigating atmospheric CO2 emissions, making the sealing capacity of caprocks pivotal as storage scales up. Despite excellent sealing capacities observed in intact rock samples in laboratory experiments, the presence of discontinuities like bedding planes, fractures, and faults in field-scale applications poses monitoring challenges. This thesis aims to develop a methodology for characterizing potential low-carbon geo-energy sites across various spatiotemporal scales, spanning from millimeters and nanoseconds to kilometers and decades.To achieve this, the thesis employs a multi-scale approach, starting with large-scale investigations and progressing to in-situ underground rock laboratories and laboratory investigations. The initial phase explores four analytical solutions of pore pressure diffusion with periodic sources to enable real-time interpretation of in-situ data. Comparisons with numerical solutions, incorporating reservoir deformation due to pressure waves, reveal consistent results when identical assumptions are maintained. Despite distinct wave propagation patterns depending on the application (energy storage, liquid injection into shale, and enhanced geothermal systems stimulation), errors remain below 3% for effective mean stress variations across all cases. This approach allows for rapid reactions to unexpected events, crucial in real-time decision-making.The subsequent phase involves plane-strain coupled hydro-mechanical simulations of periodic CO2 injection for 20 years, simulating the CO2LPIE experiment at Mont Terri Underground Rock Laboratory. Results highlight the anisotropic behavior of the material, influencing pore pressure changes and stress variations along bedding planes. Capillary effects in nanoscale pores prevent CO2 penetration into Opalinus Clay, causing it to dissolve into the resident brine. Pore pressure oscillations imposed at the injection well attenuate within tens of centimeters, emphasizing the need for closely located monitoring boreholes to observe the periodic signal.Finally, a 3D numerical model simulates water injection into a fractured Opalinus Clay specimen, accounting for fracture geometry with stress-dependent aperture changes. The model reveals a significant nine-order magnitude span in fracture permeability, impacting fluid flow within the rock specimen. Achieving the best fit with experimental results involves incorporating a natural fracture normal stiffness ranging from 18.7 MPa/mm at lower effective mean stresses to 187.2 MPa/mm at higher confinements. This underscores the critical importance of defining hydro-mechanical parameters of fractures under realistic stress conditions, with implications for secure underground storage.In summary, this thesis provides a comprehensive methodology for characterizing low-carbon geo-energy sites at multiple scales. Analytical solutions offer real-time insights, coupled hydro-mechanical simulations illuminate material anisotropy, and 3D numerical models reveal fracture behavior. The findings contribute to advancing the understanding and implementation of Geological Carbon Storage, offering crucial insights for environmentally sustainable energy practices.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
