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: The aim of this research is to provide an in-depth understanding of energy consumption in abrasive disc cutting processes. The specific energy consumed in cutting is measured,analysed, and then characterised in to three components. To this end, an experimental device is built using an Arduino-controlled grinder to measure the specific energy consumed by cutting at different feed rates. Using a model, the experimental data is validated and the Specific Energy Consumed is separated into three energy components: sliding, ploughing and specific cutting energy. Furthermore, the influence of cutting conditions and material properties significantly influenced the specific energy consumption and its components.To analyse the effect of grain shape and the relative dependence of the different components of the Specific Energy Consumed as a function of material removal rate, integral models of specific ploughing energy, specific sliding energy and specific cutting energy are developed. Conventional and super abrasive cubitron abrasive grains were used. Cutting with pyramidal abrasive discs (cubitron) was used for the determination of the relative components of the specific energy consumed. It was found that the specific ploughing energy is more sensitive to the change in material removal rate compared to the sliding energy. Due to the fast shearing and precisely shaped cubitron grains, the transition from sliding to a specific shear regime was so fast for some materials that the magnitude of the ploughing energy was found to be negligible.However, the model implementation for some materials showed that the absence or presence of ploughing energy also depends on the rate of material removed.Finally, the development of a cutting grain model is presented which will allow the study of the chip compression ratio which is not possible to characterise by means of a single cutting grain in metal cutting with thin abrasive discs. This latest development is the beginning of a study of chip formation in the primary cutting zone of an abrasive grain.This research provides a machine and a methodology to characterise cutting with commercially available abrasive discs in terms of the Specific Energy Consumed parameter.

    Thesis abstract: The internal cushioning systems of hydraulic linear actuators, of special interest in mobile machinery, pursue to avoid mechanical shocks at their end of stroke. The design where the piston, with perimeter grooves, regulates the flow by standing in front of the outlet port has not been studied in depth until now. Consequently, the operating fundamentals, influencing factors and optimization of these cushioning designs have been investigated. First, a dynamic model has been developed using the bond graph technique that integrates the mechanical equations of the actuator, the hydraulic circuit and the flow through the studied internal cushion design. This considers the evolution of internal flow during cushioning, characterized in detail by fluid-dynamic simulation. This CFD model has been validated experimentally for its refinement and well-founded determination of discharge coefficients. Subsequently, the complete dynamics of the actuator and, in particular, the radial movement of the piston are experimentally studied by means of the difficult installation of a sophisticated displacement sensor. Finally, the experimental observations and the fluid-dynamic coefficients are integrated into the dynamic model; ultimately, the model aims to predict the experimental behavior of the cushioning during the movement of the arm of an excavator. The radial movement of the observed piston turns it into an active and adjusting element that is essential in cushioning. This radial movement in coherence with the significant drag force estimated in the CFD simulation, generated by the flow through the grooves, where the laminar flow regime predominates. Analytical models are suitable for predicting the behavior of the cushioning system, observing results comparable to those experimentally obtained . There is an optimal behavior, highly influenced by the mechanical stress conditions of the system, subject to a compromise between an increasing section of the grooves and an optimization of the radial gap. In addition, given the difficult direct measurement of the radial movement of the piston, an indirect measurement method has been evaluated using low-cost accelerometers. Thus, a bond graph simulation model predicts the results of the double integration of acceleration, observed experimentally. Influenced by the diverse nature of the existing movements, the severe propagation of measurement errors makes indirect measurement of piston radial motion inadequate.

    Thesis abstract: In recent years, the use of prostheses has widely increased due to their ability to replace defective parts of the skeleton. Among artificial implants, hip joint plays a critical role in the human body since it allows to walk, run, and jump. Hip prostheses have a hemispherical shape in which the outer surface should be rough enough to favour cell ingrowth and proliferation. In contrast, inner surface should be smooth to enable movement between femur head and inner surface of acetabulum. In this thesis, study and analysis of the properties of printed scaffolds that can be used in the external part of the acetabulum is performed. The ultimate goal of the research is to print ceramic prostheses, which are strong and inert, and release low debris. However, in the present study the specimens were printed in plastic material, whose printing technique by extrusion is far more developed than that for ceramics.First, in order to mimic the outer surface, different mesostructures such as Voronoi, honeycomb, grid, imitation of the trabecular bone structure or bone-like, and octet-truss were designed and printed. The samples were designed using specific drawing software such as Rhinoceros. In order to check the possibility to use each structure, samples were printed utilizing the fused filament fabrication (FFF) technique, using PLA (polylactic acid), which is more cost-effective for testing and final printing than ceramics. Grid, trabecular and octet-truss were the most appropriate mesostructures, because in these cases porosity and pore size are controllable, with interconnected porosity, and these two factors are critical for bone growth in osseointegrated prostheses.With the purpose of obtaining required pore size and porosity of the structures, two geometrical models were defined for both the grid and the bone-like structures respectively. By help of tailored geometries and use of Matlab, proper pore size and porosity for cell growth have been analyzed and generated, which is between 0.1~0.5 mm and 55~75%, respectively.In order to assess the influence of printing parameters on dimensional error, roughness and porosity, design of experiments (DOE) was carried out. The grid structure was selected among the different ones in this case as an example. A factorial design and later multiobjective optimization were used to select the most appropriate values for the printing variables. Four parameters, namely layer height, speed, temperature, and flow rate were considered for printing the samples. Results of obtained dimensional error indicated that the layer height and flow rate are the most significant parameters. Roughness depends mainly on layer height. Porosity is mainly influenced by layer height and interaction between layer height and flow rate.Afterwards, compression tests for both the octet and the bone-like structure, were carried out. Prismatic samples were printed with a width to height ratio W/H of 2 and 4, for the determination of compression strength and elastic modulus respectively. FEM analyse were also performed using the ANSYS software. The results showed that for both octet and bone-like structure, increasing the radius of the struts, increases the stiffness and, therefore, the modulus of elasticity of the structures. The results for H/W = 4 were more similar to the simulated ones, than the results for H/W=2. Furthermore, for the bone-like structure, it was concluded that, for a greater strut radius, the experimental results of Young¿s modulus were lower than that predicted by FEM.The present thesis will help to select proper structures for the outer surface of the hip prostheses, considering both their porosity and their mechanical properties that are essential factors for the creation of the porous structures.Future research could apply the structures analysed in this thesis to the ceramic impression, in order to advance in the manufacture of customized hip prostheses.

    Thesis abstract: The Future Circular Hadron Collider (FCC-hh) is a proposal for a 100 km long hadron collider conceived as the successor of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The FCC-hh is designed to reach 50 TeV of beam energy, greatly surpassing the current energy frontier set by the LHC at 7 TeV. Thus, it is expected to expand the current horizon of understanding of the Standard Model of particle physics. The beam vacuum chamber of the FCC-hh will have to cope with unprecedented levels of synchrotron radiation power for hadron colliders, around 160 times higher than its predecessor, dealing simultaneously with a tighter magnet aperture. Since the higher radiation power will result in a much higher gas load, the difficulty to achieve a good vacuum quality increases considerably compared with the LHC. This thesis presents a study of the so-called beam induced vacuum effects in the FCC-hh, meaning the different phenomena which, due to the presence of the particle beam, have a detrimental impact on the accelerator¿s vacuum level. These studied effects are the photon stimulated desorption (PSD), the electron stimulated desorption (ESD) and ion stimulated desorption (ISD). Each effect has been thoroughly studied, calculating analytically and with a series of Monte Carlo simulations the resulting gas density in the chamber for all the common gas species. Finally, the feasibility of the FCC-hh from the vacuum point of view has been assessed. To mitigate the beam induced effects and to improve the vacuum quality in the FCC-hh (essential for a proper machine operation) it was necessary to propose a new beam screen design. The new beam screen features new solutions to mitigate the e- cloud, to handle the synchrotron radiation and a much higher pumping speed, at the expense of a higher manufacturing complexity. A dedicated experimental setup was used by CERN during the design phase to measure the vacuum performance of the developed beam screen prototypes. Finally, the obtained experimental results were compared with the theoretical results to further enhance their validity. It is concluded that thanks to the new beam screen design, the vacuum level in the FCC-hh should be adequate. Using nominal beam parameters, the established FCC-hh vacuum specifications could be met within the first months of conditioning, a reasonable amount of time.

    Thesis abstract: In food and pharmacological industries, reducing the production time and improving the machine flexibility to be adapted to new products is a constant necessity. This generate changes on the initial working conditions for which the machines were designed. These conditions cause alterations on its dynamic response that can lead to structural failures. To detect the earliest signs of damage of the different elements of the machines makes possible to avoid unplanned downtimes and the economic losses that this involves.The use of agitators at these types of industries is common. The agitators are rotating machines composed for one or several blades, working with different types of fluids and with a wide range of shapes. The company Vak Kimsa S.A., with 48 years of history, has consolidated its position in recent years as agitators and in-line mixing manufacturer, being a leader in the national market. Due to the continuous development of new technologies, their integration to the industry and the increasing demand for competitive products, the company raise a long-term project to take its products to the next level. The objective is to be able to offer an agitator¿s monitoring service in order to avoid unplanned downtimes. Analysing, from the vibrational point of view, the state of the elements that compose the agitator and being able to stablish alarms according to this.The study is part of an Industrial Doctorate together with the CDIF (Centre for Industrial Diagnostics and Fluid Dynamics) of the UPC of Barcelona. The whole project has been financed by the Government of Catalonia, thanks to the funds earmarked for Industrial Doctorate projects.The objectives and the methodology used to carry out the project are detailed in this document. The experimental test, numerical simulations and the subsequent data analysis are explained, as well as the new knowledge obtained by the company in terms of the dynamic behaviours of the agitators and the use of new technology. Finally, and based on this, the minimum hardware and software are established in order to perform the monitoring service.

    Thesis abstract: In this document, a non-linear constitutive model with micro-cracking and irreversibility is proposed for cortical bone of the human rib, extended with a stochastic fracture model, based on acoustic emission. Both models are innovative and describe the behavior of the human rib from the zero-load to macroscopic fracture. Experimentally, the models have shown to describe adequately the mechanical behavior of the rib, even in the non-elastic zone, where irreversible processes have been mainly associated with the propagation of micro-cracks through the material. Furthermore, the constitutive model is thermodynamically consistent, showing a notable increase in entropy as cracking process goes on, a region in which, in turn, a notable asymptotic increase in the released energy by the material has been observed in the form of waves, detected by the acoustic emission technique.In addition, the constitutive parameters of the model show significant correlation both with anthropometric variables and with micro-structural parameters, such as density, fractal dimension or mineral content, pointing to a clear importance of micro-structure in the behavior of cortical bone. Thus, the quenched disorder parameter, which represents the micro-structural damage previous to failure and which has been introduced into the model by means of the Statistical Mechanics, has shown to have a great influence of age. Likewise, a relationship has also been found between the mineralization of the sample and the possible paths that the main crack can take in its progression through the osteon network. The number of paths has been determined by means of combinatorics.On the other hand, the stochastic fracture model adequately and quantitatively predicts the occurrence of acoustic signals or hits associated with the stress level introduced into the sample, being one of the first models developed for bone.

    Thesis abstract: Cloud cavitation is a unwanted phenomenon taking place in many hydraulic machines which damages the surfaces of the solid walls due to the erosive aggressiveness induced by the collapse process. Therefore, it is necessary to accurately predict the occurrence of cloud cavitation and quantify its erosion intensity to improve the design and to extend the life cycle of existing machines and systems. The application of numerical simulation (CFD) offers the opportunity to predict unsteady cavitation. For that, it is of paramount importance to investigate how to select the most appropriate models to obtain more accurate results in an efficient way and how to relate the collapsing vapor structures with their erosion power. In the current study, the influence of the different turbulence models was assessed and the performance of cavitation models was improved. The relationship between the unsteady behavior and its erosion character was also considered by implementing an erosion model.For the assessment of the turbulence models, three Unsteady Reynolds Average Navier-Stokes (URANS) turbulence models were employed to simulate the cloud cavitation around a NACA65012 hydrofoil at eight different hydrodynamic conditions. The results indicate that the Shear Stress Transport (SST) model can better capture the unsteady cavity behavior than the k-e and the RNG models if the near wall grid resolution is fine enough. For the improvement of the cavitation models, the influence of the empirical constants of the Zwart model on the cavity dynamics was firstly investigated. The results show that the cavity behavior is sensitive to their variation, and thereby an optimal range is proposed which can provide a better prediction of the vapor volume fraction and of the instantaneous pressure pulse generated by the main cloud cavity collapse. Secondly, the original Zwart and Singhal cavitation models were corrected by taking into account the second order term of the Rayleigh-Plesset equation. The performances of the original and corrected models were compared for two different cavitation patterns. The results for a steady attached cavity demonstrate that the corrected model predicts better the pressure distribution at the cavity closure region and the cavity length in comparison with the experiment observations. The results for unsteady cloud cavitation also confirm that the prediction of the shedding frequency can be improved with the corrected Zwart model.For the investigation of the cavitation erosion power, an erosion model based on the energy balance approach was employed. It has been found that the spatial and temporal distribution of the erosion aggressiveness is sensitive to the selection of the cavitation model and to the collapse driving pressure. In particular, the use of average pressure levels combined with the Sauer cavitation model permit to achieve reliable results. Then, two erosion mechanisms have been observed, one occurs at the closure region of the main sheet cavity characterized by low-intensity collapses but with high frequency, and the other is inducted by the collapse of the shed cloudy cavity which presents a high erosion intensity but with low frequency. Finally, it has been found that the erosion power follows a power law with the main flow velocity with exponents ranging from 3 to 5 depending on the erosion estimate being used.

    Thesis abstract: The acoustic field inside a car cabin for low driving speeds is dominated by the engine or the tire noise. However, for mid to high velocities, the noise generated by the interaction of the car with the external air becomes more relevant. The flow separation from the A-pillar or the side mirror generates strong pressure fluctuations which results in acoustic waves propagated to the interior via excitation of the side window or the windshield. At each point of the flow field domain, the pressure is composed by the hydrodynamic pressure and the acoustic pressure. For typical car speeds, the Mach number is so low that the fluctuations of the compressible part of the flow are much smaller than those of the incompressible part but their characteristic lengths and convection velocities have a higher correlation with the bending waves of the windows of the vehicle. As a consequence, it is usually accepted that the major part of the interior noise in the car cabin is generated by the compressible part of the external flow field arriving to the transmission surfaces. The present thesis is focused on the research of a suitable computational methodology that enables to obtain the acoustic pressure near the transmission surfaces. To this aim, an extensive review of the most popular methods of Computational Aeroacoustics is carried out in order to understand the physical mechanisms of sound generated by a fluid in motion around a solid body and the mathematical models that describe it based on the up-to-date available literature. Due to its simplicity, efficiency and usefulness, the so-called 'acoustic analogy' proposed by Curle as an extension of the theory developed by James Lighthill is chosen to evaluate the acoustic pressure of the cases of study within this dissertation.n particular, among all the different components of a vehicle the flow pattern and acoustic performance of very wide open cavities have been deeply analysed due to its common presence in any type of vehicle design for soiling management or manufacturing restrictions. This configuration is known to be the cause of conspicuous acoustic problems such as whistles due to the well defined tonal noise known in the literature as Rossiter modes. The flow nature of this phenomena as well as its radiating pattern and response to different geometrical modifications are addressed in this work. A particular feature of this configuration is the oscillatory mode: shear layer mode (SL) or wake mode (WM). For the parameters considered in the present dissertation it is seen that while in SL the flow shows a two-dimensional behaviour, in WM the flow is three-dimensional, resulting in significantly different sound sources. The computation of the acoustic pressure is done using Curle's formulation evaluated as a post-process of an unsteady incompressible three-dimensional Navier-Stokes solution and compared with the results obtained with Direct Simulation (DS). It is found that DS and Curle's analogy are in good agreement except in the wake area, where quadrupole acoustic sources are present. Regarding the evaluation of the passive noise control techniques, the results show that the modifications on the trailing edge are the most effective to control the flow. They allow to reduce the pressure fluctuations produced by the recirculation confined inside the cavity and the abrupt ejection of the flow at the trailing edge. As a consequence, the overall sound pressure level can be decreased up to 9dB. Once the model has been validated for an isolated geometry, the application of the same method is extended for a real car geometry. The acoustic radiation to the side window and windshield of a side mirror and A-pillar of a vehicle is shown as an example of the potential of this procedure for aeroacoustic analysis and optimisation of a vehicle straight from the drawing table.

    Thesis abstract: Over the past decade, microfluidic technology has proven its capabilities to start bringing detection and quantification capacities to novel miniaturized devices. The current generation of microfluidic platforms provide great precision in detection and quantification. At the same time, they have started to evolve towards self-sufficient (stand-alone) setups. These platforms are relying less and less on external power sources and they use built-in detection and quantification methods to be flexible and mobile. Among the various Lab on a Chip (LOC) applications, micro¿Total Analysis Systems (µTAS) and Point of Care Tests (POCT) are the pinnacles of microfluidic platforms. They are accurate, rapid, cost-effective, and user-friendly. They can monitor and measure compounds that were, previously, only detectable in state-of-the-art laboratories. This characteristic is quite important and vital, especially when it comes to human health status monitoring. Therefore, developing POCs and µTASs has been the center of attention for researchers in recent years.To reduce the reliance of microfluidic platforms on external power sources and measuring instruments. There is the need to improve and enhance the microfluidic platforms, not only from the performance point-of-view but also from their manufacturability, to be able to batch produce them at lower costs. Most microfluidic circuits detect or measure a compound and in the first step, they need to label/enhance a reaction, in other words, mix two or more components and then analyze the results based on the readout. This thesis proposes an enhancement of the performance of a key element in most µTAS and POC devices such as the micromixer, with the introduction of a geometrical expansion that increases the diffusion path without increasing the pressure loss. Afterwards, its performance is validated and the design has been used to quantify for the first time on a microfluidic platform the ionic strength of buffered and non-buffered solutions. Finally, and to avoid the need for syringe pumps, in the same quantification strategy, we have introduced paper as a substrate material and optimized the inlet geometry to enhance the performance of the novel microfluidic paper-diffusion-based sensor for ionic strength quantification. The proposed sensor was able to quantify the ionic strength of buffered and non-buffered solutions down to 0.1 M concentrations using Whatman 5 paper substrate.

    Thesis abstract: The mobility of the future undoubtedly involves the electrification of vehicles. The increase in social awareness towards a reduction in CO2 emissions, together with the introduction of new laws regulating them, has finally led to an increase in the sales of electric vehicles. Furthermore, this trend is expected to continue to increase due to the global interest in reducing these emissions.The growth in sales has meant that lithium-ion batteries have become an indispensable element in the automotive sector. The overall emissions of an electric car are between 20 and 40 % lower than those of conventional vehicles, with the current energy mix. With the increase in green power generation, the EU expects to reduce emissions by up to 75 % by 2050 compared to fossil fuel vehicles.The battery, like any other vehicle component, wears out over time and use. Car manufacturers recommend that when these batteries reach 70 % of their health, they should be replaced, as the manufacturers cannot guarantee their proper functioning and they could suffer a drastic drop in capacity, i.e. in the vehicle's range.However, before these batteries are recycled, there is a possibility that they could be reused, as they still have enough power and capacity, to be used in other, less demanding applications. As a result, the reuse of these batteries, whose cost represents between 30 and 40 % of the final price of an electric vehicle, is seen within the automotive sector as a great possibility to reduce the selling price of the electric car and make it more competitive than internal combustion cars.Batteries have therefore become an indispensable element not only for the automotive industry, but also for any application that needs to store electrical energy. Consequently, it is already suggested that there is a market niche where these batteries could have great potential. The objective of reducing the heavy dependence on fossil fuels has led to an increase in renewable energies in the European energy mix. Their intermittence opens the door for energy storage sources to cover the moments when there is no generation.Giving a second life to electric vehicle batteries has prompted the research interest of this doctoral thesis, which analyses different new models of use and business once they are no longer valid for the automobile.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis is focused on the enhancement and development of advanced methodologies for the dynamic characterisation of resilient elements used in railway applications. On the one hand, this thesis proposes several improvements to the application of the indirect method described in ISO 10846 standard for determining the dynamic stiffness of resilient elements using a swept-sine excitation. Within this framework, this work proposes a method that allows to design the swept-sine excitation parameters in order to ensure a predefined maximum error of those estimated frequency response functions that are needed to determine the dynamic stiffness. This method is based on a procedure that uses a numerical simulation of the test-rig and the resilient element of study which allows to predict the error made as a function of the excitation parameters and of the existing background noise, allowing to optimise the test in terms of required time and results quality. The method is then validated experimentally for two case studies: a sample of an elastomeric material and a coil spring. This work has also studied the influence that the experimental setup, the static preload and the dynamic loading have on the estimation of the frequency response functions. On the other hand, this thesis considers the adaptation of an existing in situ methodology to laboratory testing. The methodology allows to determine the dynamic stiffness of an elastic element in a broad frequency range with a single test. This alternative methodology has been validated using the two case studies previously mentioned. By including the improvements made to the indirect method to this methodology, it is possible to obtain a simple and robust method that can take into account the uncertainty related to several effects such as the excitation, the background noise and the experimental setup. Finally, the dynamic stiffness results obtained for both case studies have been compared to the results obtained using standardised methods such as the direct and indirect methods. From these comparisons it can be concluded that the proposed alternative method is the best choice to determine the frequency dependence of the dynamic stiffness, specially at high frequencies, as it allows to perform a broad-band characterisation in a single test and it overcomes the problems induced by the inertia forces found when the direct method is applied at high frequencies.

    Thesis abstract: Since the map from quaternions to rotation matrices is a 2-to-1 covering map, this map cannot be smoothly inverted. As a consequence, it is sometimes erroneously assumed that all inversions should necessarily contain singularities that arise in the form of quotients where the divisor can be arbitrarily small. This misconception was clarified when we found a new division-free conversion method. This result triggered the research work presented in this thesis. At first glance, the matrix to quaternion conversion does not seem to be a relevant problem. Actually, most researchers consider it as a well-solved problem whose revision is not likely to provide any new insight in any area of practical interest. Nevertheless, we show in this thesis how solving the nearest rotation matrix problem in Frobenius norm can be reduced to a matrix to quaternion conversion. Many problems, such as hand-eye calibration, camera pose estimation, location recognition, image stitching etc. require finding the nearest proper orthogonal matrix to a given matrix. Thus, the matrix to quaternion conversion becomes of paramount importance. While a rotation in 3D can be represented using a quaternion, a rotation in 4D can be represented using a double quaternion. As a consequence, the computation of the nearest rotation matrix in 4D, using our approach, essentially follow the same steps as in the 3D case. Although the 4D case might seem of theoretical interest only, we show in this thesis its practical relevance thanks to a little known mapping between 3D displacements and 4D rotations. In this thesis we focus our attention in obtaining closed-form solutions, in particular those that only require the four basic arithmetic operations because they can easily be implemented on microcomputers with limited computational resources. Moreover, closed-form methods are preferable for at least two reasons: they provide the most meaningful answer because they permit analyzing the influence of each variable on the result; and their computational cost, in terms of arithmetic operations, is fixed and assessable beforehand. We have actually derived closed-form methods specifically tailored for solving the hand-eye calibration and the pointcloud registration problems which outperform all previous approaches.

    Thesis abstract: Additive Manufacturing is the process of joining materials to make objects from a 3D model data, normally layer-upon-layer through series of some cross-sectional slices, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing technologies. In terms of themedical field, its expansion seems to have no end and can reach unexpected roads, and, in recent years, this progress has helped to minimize the health-related setbacks in our society. Different paths were opened in dental and hearing aids,biofabrication, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, implants, the manufacture of surgical planning prototypes, etc.Doctors sometimes need to face complex surgeries that require a lot of time and this can lead to a higher likelihood of having a mishap. Additionally, until now, on many occasions, surgeons only had available the information that the DICOMsprovide, which might not be enough for preparing a surgery.That is why, the fabrication of 3D physical models is a useful method for improving the surgery skills of surgeons. Their use can be vital to help the doctor in understanding beforehand what is needed to be done in the operation for two reasons: (1)reducing operation time; and (2) decreasing the danger.Despite offering such a good improvement, there are relevant limitations with the prototypes manufactured recently: (1) a lack of prototypes which can mimic the corresponding tissues; (2) cost-effective AM technologies which are able to 3D print material that can reach the softness of soft living tissues. Among the seven categories of the AM technologies, four were used: vat-photopolymerization, powder bed fusion (PBF) for plastic parts, material extrusion (ME) and material jetting (MJ).The later one mentioned is the technology which have achieved s o far to 3D print prototypes that were ¿m ore mimetic than others ¿. But, it is a very expensive 3D printing process. Therefore, it was seen necessary to explore new roads to go onestep further and try to overcome the drawbacks of this AM technology by finding materials and 3D printing technologies which are both cost-effective and able to 3D print more realistic and cost-effective prototypes.In this way, a first approach by combining ME and PBF with indirect 3D printing is explored. Three different cases are introduced with the objective of reducing costs and achieving multi-materiality and softer parts: (1) two full-processes of indirect 3D printing of two hepatic cases using soft silicones; (2) a full-process of a neuroblastoma case using a hybrid multi-material 3D printer (ME by FFF and DIW), which is also presented; and (3) a full-process of a neuroblastoma case using a hybrid manufacturing, in other words, combining separately 3D printed in parts FFF and SLS. This approach was excellent for visualization as long as it is a multi-colour and multi-material 3D printed prototype. However, for hands-on training, this is more limited and, therefore, a necessity to keep working in the search of cost-accessible 3D printable materials: hydrogels and silicones.The characterization of materials is fulfilled and its correlation to the soft living tissues is done based on viscoelasticity (DMA), hardness (Shore hardness tests), cutting feeling (Warner-Bratzler shear test) and roughness . The results of the mimicking of the soft living tissues are explained, analyzed, and discussed with previous research studies. It was seen that hydrogels have similar properties to soft tissues in terms of hardness and viscoelasticity, but not for Warner-Bratzler shear test. Silicones, however, obtained disparate results: (1) commercial silicones are away from the range of soft tissues, and (2) self-synthetized silicones have better properties.It is confirmed that is possible to develop a 3D mimetic surgical planning prototype using indirect 3D printing, and this is done with a real case of a biliary tract rhabdomyosarcoma. The material used for the soft part is one the best materials showed in the analysis

    Thesis abstract: As a type of renewable energy that can provide rapid response to the requirement of the power grid, hydropower plays a fairly important position in the energy market. In recent years, with the enormous entrance of new renewable energies (NREs) such as wind energy and solar energy, the stability of the power grid has been challenged: the intermittent power supply from the NREs requires the hydraulic turbines to work more in off-design conditions and regulate the output much more frequently than they did before. In this new scenario, several problems have appeared in hydraulic turbine units. In order to reduce the maintaining periods and critical damages on the unit, condition monitoring techniques have been proved to be a useful tool for operators. However, these techniques shall be improved and updated in order to consider this new situation for hydropower.At present, hydraulic turbines have been monitored by different types of sensors. However, new data analysis technologies such as artificial intelligence haven¿t been implemented in the systematical analyses of the prototypes. These techniques could improve the actual condition monitoring systems and could help to improve the diagnosis capacity for some critical problems, where classical analysis may fail.In this study, existing monitoring and field test data from various types of turbines (Pump turbine, Francis turbine and Pelton turbine) has been used and several artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and data-driven methods have been applied in order to improve the existing condition monitoring techniques.Firstly, for the pump turbine analyzed, artificial neural network (ANN) have been used to generate vibration hill charts based on the indicators used for condition monitoring. This has helped to analyze abnormal behaviors of the machine and to propose a better condition monitoring based on the generated maps. This can provide effective guidance for the operation plan of the unit.Secondly, the limits of operation of a large Francis turbine due to overload instability have been analyzed. AI techniques have been applied on existing data to analyze the feasibility to detect the overload instability several seconds before it occurs. It is shown that by implementing these techniques in the existing condition monitoring system, the operating range of the unit could be safely increased.Finally, for a failure that occurred in a Pelton turbine (broken bucket), artificial neural networks combined with dimension reduction techniques have been used to build up a model that can accurately predict the damage, which is helpful for the scheduled maintenance.This is an Article-Based Thesis, so it is based on three Journal Papers that have been published during the thesis duration. These three Journal papers are about the improved hydro turbine condition monitoring and fault diagnosis based on AI techniques, and they are attached and commented though the whole document of this thesis.

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.
