Mechanical Engineering, Fluids and Aeronautics

The doctoral programme in Mechanical Engineering, Fluids and Aeronautics of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) is the result of collaboration between two departments – Mechanical Engineering and Fluid Mechanics – and the Terrassa School of Industrial, Aerospace and Audiovisual Engineering (ESEIAAT). Doctoral programmes in Mechanical and Fluid Engineering (formerly called Fluids, Turbomachines and Fluid Power) have been taught for over 20 years. Both of the departments involved have extensive experience in third-cycle studies.

The ESEIAAT – a school with a long tradition in the field of industrial engineering that introduced aeronautics studies in the 2004-2005 academic year – has joined these two departments with the aim of offering quality third-cycle studies.

The programme includes several research groups, some of which are members of TECNIO, an initiative of ACC10, the Catalan Government's agency for technological innovation:

Centre for Industrial Diagnostics and Fluid Dynamics, CDIF. A research centre with expertise in the dynamic behaviour of hydraulic turbomachines, diagnosis of vibration problems, fluid dynamic studies, and fluid-structure interaction phenomena. The Centre’s main research areas are structural analysis, diagnostics, simulation and cavitation.

Biomechanical Engineering (Group and Lab) Lab-BIOMEC. The Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC), a research group of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), covers one of the eight research areas of the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB). The Group focuses its research on developing theoretical, numerical and experimental methods for dynamic simulation of human movement and the design of assistive and monitoring devices for rehabilitation. BIOMEC has a movement analysis laboratory for studying human movement and collaborates with renowned international groups and leading hospitals and technology centres.

Fluid Power Systems Laboratory, LABSON. LABSON is primarily an applied research laboratory where theoretical and simulation studies are complemented by strong experimental support.

Industrial and Aeronautical Fluid-Dynamic Applications Research Group, IAFARG. The research conducted by IAFARG focuses on industrial and aeronautical applications and on gaining experience and knowledge in the field of fluid dynamics technologies.

Acoustic and Mechanical Engineering Laboratory, LEAM. A research centre dedicated to developing and applying noise and vibration reduction techniques, from both a technical and management perspective.

Turbulence and Aerodynamics in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Research Group, TUAREG. TUAREG is a lab that focuses on developing numerical methods for fluid dynamics studies, mainly in external flow and aerodynamics.

Manufacturing Technologies Research Group, TECNOFAB. A UPC group that carries out projects related to product manufacturing processes. The Group’s research focuses on processes, methodologies, and integration of different manufacturing technologies. It is also involved in the study of computer-aided manufacturing systems.

MicroTech Lab, MICROTECH LAB. A UPC research group that focuses on applying miniaturisation to create novel micro and nanofluid mechanical systems to improve on their larger predecessors in various fields of engineering (e.g. biomedicine, energy, automotive engineering, and communications).

Continuum and Computational Mechanics, (MC2)-UPC. A research group that works on structures and the mechanics of continuous media and computational mechanics.

Laboratory for Technological Innovation in Structures and Materials, LITEM. This research group aims to support the industrial fabric in research, development and innovation activities involving the design, analysis, testing or certification of materials and structures for strength purposes.

Strength of Materials and Structural Engineering Group. RMEE. The Group focuses on research and technology transfer in the field of mechanics of continuous media and structures in engineering, applying analytical, mechanical simulation and experimental methods.

The doctoral programme is also supported by the Centre for Advanced Technologies in Mechanics, TECNIO-CATMech Group. CATMech emerged as an association of the LABSON, LEAM, LITEM and MICROTECH research groups. The Group is organised into the three divisions: Fluids, Vibrations and Acoustics, and Materials and Structures.

The result is a multidisciplinary programme aimed at training students who wish to deepen and develop their research in mechanical engineering, fluids or aeronautics.

The doctoral programme, which is part of the UPC's Industrial Engineering area, organises its academic activity as follows:
• Basic techno-scientific research focusing on the mathematical formulation, numerical resolution and experimental validation of fluid mechanics and dynamics phenomena.
• More applied research, grounded in basic research and focusing on the design and optimisation of mechanical systems, turbomachines and fluid power systems, which has generated significant technology transfer.
• The research carried out enables members to contribute to teaching on bachelor's, master's and doctoral programmes, in industrial engineering subjects related to the areas of basic and applied research that the Group focuses on.

This framework has facilitated feedback between teaching, research and technology transfer, driving continuous improvement in these activities. Graduates have found employment in academia and private enterprise, with opportunities evenly distributed between these two areas. The doctoral programme ensures that all theses defended are of high quality by applying the principles and procedures set out in its specific regulations.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. 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 five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

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 minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

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 maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the scientific field of the doctoral programme in Mechanical Engineering, Fluids and Aeronautics, there are a wide range of degrees that qualify applicants for admission. The most suitable entrance qualifications are pre-EHEA technical and science degrees and bachelor’s degrees in scientific and technological fields. Applicants should also have completed a master's degree (or 60 ECTS master's degree credits) in an area related to the scientific field of the programme.


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 thinking 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.

The main entrance qualifications for the programme are the following master’s degrees in related fields:
Master's degree in Industrial Engineering

Access requirements

Applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor’s degree or equivalent and a Spanish master’s degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

To study on the doctoral programme, students must be admitted by the academic committee.
Students seeking admission should contact the academic committee and follow the application procedure established for the programme.

The academic committee may set additional admission requirements, including the requirement to pass specific tests.

Admission criteria are based on the academic background of applicants. Specifically, their academic record and university of origin will be considered, with input from their possible/planned tutor, in relation to the subject area initially proposed for the thesis. To facilitate this process, potential applicants are recommended to complete a number of questionnaires and exercises so that we can better understand their aptitudes and chances of successfully completing a doctoral degree in the subject area indicated. The languages used are those of the doctoral programme (Spanish, Catalan and English).

Criteria for assessment of merits and weighting:
• Academic record, 30%.
• Personal contact through questionnaires, exercises and telephone interviews, 40%.
• Motivation, 20%.
• Knowledge of languages, 5%.
• Research experience, 5%.

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 will provide research training. In no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits. (The academic regulations for UPC doctoral courses state that bridging courses may also provide cross-disciplinary training, but it is anticipated that this point will be changed so that bridging courses are associated only with research training credits, particularly in the case of students admitted to a doctoral programme with a bachelor’s degree that carries 300 ECTS credits.)

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

Procedure for determining bridging courses required.
The academic committee will determine what bridging courses students need to take based on their previous training. Students will also receive individual guidance from their thesis supervisor and/or tutor, who will advise them and indicate the subjects that are most appropriate based on their entrance qualifications.

Any bridging courses that students are required to pass will be subjects offered on one of the master's degrees related to the programme:
• Master's degree in Industrial Engineering
• Master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering
• Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering
• Master's degree in Automatic Control and Robotics
• Master’s degree in Research on Mechanical Engineering

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

The enrolment period for new doctoral students will be in September.

More information at the registration section for new doctoral students

Enrolment period

After the first year, the enrolment period for doctoral students will run from September to mid-October.

More information at the general registration section

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.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of 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 maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: This PhD mostly focuses in studding the flow around a square cylinder with an upstream splitter plate and considering different velocity ratios between the upper and lower inlet velocities. The PhD is based in three main studies:1.-The flow instabilities, involving the transition from two dimensional to three dimensional flow, the Hopt, Neimark Sacker bifurcations as well as the road to chaos, all of them were determined as a function of the velocity ratio. A parametric study was also performed involving the instabilities performance as a function of the splitter plate length and the distance splitter plate square cylinder.2.-Two dimensional and full three dimensional CFD-DNS simulations were undertaken to find out the wake topology and aerodynamic performances such as, dynamic lift, drag, pressure and friction coefficients, Strouhal numbers, boundary layer dynamics as well as the different instability modes.3.- Wake past circular cylinder has been investigated to characterize the three-dimensional instability in the transitional regime when the boundary layer over the cylinder surface is laminar and shear layer separating the surface undergoes intermittently unstable displacements which manifests in the form of small time and length scale vortical structures. The wake in this flow regime is modestly turbulent and the streamwise velocity profiles across the flow stream feature typical U-shape profile.

    Thesis abstract: We are currently immersed in the fourth industrial revolution that involves, among others, technology to prevent climate change,transformation of the transport sector, digitization and artificial intelligence. An important question regarding vehicles designoptimization and environmental care are energy management strategy and efficiency determination. There are different types oftechnology to alleviate this problem such as those used in pure electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fuel cell vehicles. Automotivebrands work with a wide range of technologies and electrified mobility is considered to be one of the solutions to the growingenvironmental question.My doctoral thesis contributes to technological development, to accelerate the design of ecological vehicles and to its introductionin smart cities. It is presented a novel approach to a model that forecasts specifications data of a future car to allow finding its optimal structure regarding its volume, weight and/or cost to reduce any social, environmental and/or economic impacts and,consequently, mitigates climate change and contributes to general conservation strategies.The objective of my doctoral thesis is to develop a flexible, expandable and simple mathematical methodology of vehicle design optimization, capable to maximize a vehicle range with finest computational effort, thanks to a genetic algorithm, and to givepredictive information to minimize cost, volume and weight of the drive-train in vehicle structure and according to the designer¿s desire.Initially, the desired range, specifications, and architecture of the vehicle must be known, as well as the drive cycle (time and speed). The reliability of the system has been verified making a component-to-component revision through commercially available 4-wheeled vehicles (e.g. Tesla X P90D, MIA electric, Twizy 45 and Twizy 80, BMW i3 Rex, Toyota Prius, Ford C-MAX Energi, Toyota Mirai, etc.) taking into account their technical specifications such as electric motor type (e.g. induction, permanent magnet and hybrid electric motor), technology of energy storage system (e.g. NiMH or lithium-ion battery and fuel cell), with different degrees of electrification (e.g. pure electric vehicle, series/parallel/series-parallel (plug-in) hybrid electric vehicle and fuel cellvehicle) and their category (light quadricycle [L6e], heavy quadricycle [L7e], passenger cars [M1], vans [N1] and low-speedvehicle) for different well-known/standard (i.e. EPA cycle, NEDC, JC08, WLTP, etc.) or customised drive cycles.All requisite data gathered is fed into the genetic algorithm to obtain the results. The methodology returns to the user the bestchoice, taking into account the desired requirements, in relation to the technology of the electric motor and the energy storagesystem, the price of each of them in ,¿their volume in m3 and their weight in kg. Besides, an analysis of vehicle efficiency, energyconsumption, battery and fuel cells costs and energy densities, electric motor costs and power densities is performed. Calculationof the carbon dioxide (CO2) formed from producing the electricity necessary to charge the batteries or produce H2 for the fuelcells. This information also helps designers when deciding the structure of a vehicle if they cannot decide on the primary energysource from which electricity is obtained.The results obtained demonstrates that the model is capable to give a result with great effectiveness and efficiency because the dispersion of the values of the discrepancy between real values and the calculated ones is less than 15 %.The future research work is going to be focused on expanding the casuistry in relation to vehicle configurations and the number of components that make up the drive train of an EV, (P)HEV and FCV. It is also planned to develop an application with the procedure and developed software.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis is concerned with the development of efficient and practical numerical methodologies to deal with longitudinally invariant soil-structure interaction problems in elastodynamics. All the approaches appearing in this thesis are formulated in the frequency-wavenumber domain. Moreover, the formulations can deal with full-space and half-space models of the soil. The novel proposed methods are mainly based on meshless approaches, which provide three main benefits: simplicity on the formulation and implementation, to avoid meshing requirements and to increase the computational efficiency of the evaluation of the soil-structure system response. Generally, these approaches are employed to model the wave propagation in unbounded mediums. Thus, in this thesis, meshless methods are used to model the soil, while the finite element method is mainly used to deal with the structure modelling. However, this thesis also demonstrates that meshless methods can also be used to model homogeneous structures. The performances of the novel approaches presented have been assessed in the context of railway tunnels embedded in the soil, especially for the case studies of circular and cut-and-cover tunnels. The studies are carried out for different elastodynamic models of the soil, including homogeneous full-space, homogeneous half-space and horizontally layered half-space.Four new methodologies are presented in this thesis. Firstly, a two-and-a-half-dimensional finite element-boundary element methodology coupled with the method of fundamental solutions is developed. This approach uses the method of fundamental solutions to model the wave propagation in the soil once the soil-tunnel interaction has been determined, reducing the computational needs of computing the soil response. Afterwards, the second methodology further enhances the computational efficiency, the robustness and the simplicity of the approach, by modelling the soil response using the singular boundary method. To reach even higher computational benefits, a hybrid method that combines the singular boundary method and the method of fundamental solutions is proposed. This hybrid approach is found to be inheriting the computational efficiency of the method of fundamental solutions while keeping the robustness and accuracy presented by the singular boundary method. The hybrid methodology is finally extended to model both the structure and wave propagation in the soil, which leads to a fully meshless and efficient approach to deal with the soil-structure interaction problems.

    Thesis abstract: Heavy vehicles are generally equipped with Shock Absorber Suspension Cylinders, which, in addition to integrating in the same element, the damping and suspension mechanism, allow obtaining greater suspension travels, maintaining the rest extension in the event of possible variations of load. They are normally made up of two or more oil chambers and a pair of Nitrogen chambers. During reciprocating suspension movements, oil and gas flow up and down between two consecutive chambers often separated by one or more nozzles or valves. The main objective of this Doctoral Thesis is to make a model that predicts the performance of an asymmetric shock absorber of known geometry, under dynamic conditions of use. Addressing such a complex issue in an agile and simple way has motivated the author to study the cylinder by subdividing it into different sub-models, initially evaluating the mass transfer between the gas chambers, Cd, later studying the evolution of pressures, only contemplating the gas chambers interconnected with the study nozzle and concluding with a general model that studies the entire Damped Suspension Cylinder and which is the object of study in this Thesis. The simulation of the dynamic characteristics of mechanical components of this nature makes it possible to predict the performance of said cylinders based on the design parameters and the initial operating conditions, saving design time and development means, while also avoiding the generation of significant errors in said designs. This contribution allows the possibility of optimizing and applying significant improvements without the need to invest resources in experimental studies. All this translates into financial savings, always sought after by developers. Thanks to the large volume of experiments carried out and analysed, in the different test benches, designed and built for this purpose, a model capable of predicting the behaviour of the CSA in the face of external disturbances has been validated, obtaining a good correlation between the experimental data and the theoretical data, the maximum error obtained being less than 7%, for the working conditions proposed in the study.

    Thesis abstract: Active noise cancellation is a unique approach that helps passive noise control in reducing sound levels at low frequencies; nevertheless, successful use of active noise cancellation necessitates performing numerous and tedious experiments together with defining several parameters properly. The locations and quantity of active control system transducers are among these parameters.The present research provides a comprehensive framework for placing control sources and error microphones near a noise barrier in order to improve its efficiency in both narrowband and broadband noise spectra. To accomplish this, the appropriate locations for the control sources are first determined using a repetitive computation method, and then the optimizations are completed by determining the best position for the error microphone.Several alternative transducer locations near the barrier are incorporated in the repetitive computation, and the optimal sites for the control sources and error microphones are found using two-step optimization methods as well as the genetic algorithms approach.The findings reveal that the best places to put the control sources are on the incident side, below the barrier's edge, and the best locations to place the error microphones are on the shadow side, as close as possible to the target area. The effect of ground reflection on the efficiency of the active noise control system is also investigated, and it is discovered that while ground reflection has no significant effect on the performance of the active noise control system for broadband frequency ranges, it does reduce the control system's efficiency at tonal noises.In order to optimize more parameters, further calculations are performed based on the genetic optimizer. The output of the GA calculations found new configurations for the control units that result in higher noise level reduction at the target area.In addition to the active noise barrier, the application of active noise cancellation for open windows as a particular case of the barrier is explored as a particular case of the barrier. Different arrangements are studied for the control units close to the open windows, including linear, boundary, and planar control arrangements.The effect of several parameters such as the incident angle of noise waves, the distance between error microphones and the opening, and the number of control units are investigated. The results demonstrate that the active noise control system with obliqued linear placements of transducers have higher performance than the other arrangements. Furthermore, when the frequency and incident angle increase, the effectiveness of active noise reduction decreases.

    Thesis abstract: This doctoral thesis addresses topology ptimization problems at a single scale. Based on this purpose, a new topology optimization approach is developed in order to improve existing and widespread techniques in the research community on the topic. The proposed technique presents several characteristics that overcome some of the well-known difficulties in topological optimization while maintaining a considerable degree of simplicity.In the first place, the formulation of the topological optimization technique is presented, as well as its algorithm. The method is based on 4 fundamental features: (1) the use of a 1-0 characteristic function, as well as the precise identification of the material boundaries from a discrimination function (0-level-set function), (2) the definition of a topological derivative consistent with the ersatz method (used in the state problem), as an approximation to the exact topological derivative, (3) the inclusion of a Laplacian regularization with minimum size control of the different components, and (4) the formulation of an analytical optimality condition aiming at the optimal topology solution. The approach is applied to different topology optimization problems, well-reported in the literature and used as numerical benchmarks (in structural and thermal problems), to examine their performance. In these fields, stiffness and conductivity maximization problems are considered for validation, respectively. In addition, different topological optimization problems of major engineering interest are tackled, including the design of compliant mechanisms within the structural field and thermal cloaking devices within the thermal field.Finally, a comparison of the formulation with other existing topology optimization techniques is performed, including (1) SIMP, (2) ESO/BESO, and (3) Level-set with Hamilton-Jacobi as the updating equation. The analysis of the results provides a comparison in terms of the quality of the topology of each method, the computational cost of the optimal solutions, as well as the simplicity of implementation. The resulting study reveals the potential of the developed methodology in these specific comparison terms.In an attempt to bring the method closer to other researchers and to promote its use, an educational version of the method (written in MATLAB) has been published in an online repository, together with documentation, facilitating its dissemination and subsequent use in other applications of interest.

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.
