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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.

Legal framework

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.

In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

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

    Thesis abstract: The recent developments in hydraulic machinery will increase the possibility of damage resulting from cavitation and/or vortex-induced vibrations. Yet, many researchers have shed light on the vortex street flow and the associated vortex-induced vibration in cavitating-free regimes, but less attention has been paid to the presence of cavitation. In the present study, the effects of cavitation on the vortex street flow behind a blunt trailing edge hydrofoil and its interaction with the vortex-induced vibration have been investigated. This will help to understand the mechanisms involved and to predict the dynamic of vortex-induced vibration with the presence of cavitation, allowing further control of this complex phenomenon in hydraulic machinery and systems.Thus, numerical solvers have been developed that are capable of accounting for the cavitating vortex street flow behind bluff bodies which have been validated and verified using some benchmark cases. Then, the effects of the fluid compressibility in the vortex street flow behind the wedge have been determined. Moreover, a series of numerical studies on cavitating vortex street flow behind a blunt trailing edge hydrofoil NACA 0009 have been conducted by predicting the boundary layer transition. As a result, the effects of cavitation on flow dynamics and its interaction with vortex-induced vibration have been examined.The impacts of fluid compressibility on the dynamics of the cavitating wake flow have been found to depend on the frequency range. At low frequencies, the effects of fluid compressibility are minimal and can be disregarded. On the other hand, fluid compressibility has been observed to amplify spectral energy at high frequencies. Interestingly, it has been found that almost identical numerical results with and without fluid compressibility are obtained in terms of predicted mean pressure profiles, dominant vortex shedding frequencies, and instantaneous and mean void fraction fields, which suggests that the compressibility effects on cavitating vortex shedding can be neglected. For the cavitating vortex street flow behind a blunt trailing edge hydrofoil NACA 0009, high-fidelity numerical simulations have been established in the current thesis. Based on the results, it has been observed that cavitation has a significant impact on the wake flow dynamics, notably increasing the shedding frequency of the primary vortices. Additionally, cavitation growth leads to increased hydrodynamic loads on the hydrofoil surface. Furthermore, cavitation development enhances the advected velocity of the vortices while decreasing the streamwise inter-vortex spacing. Both factors are believed to contribute to the increase of the vortex shedding frequency while the reduction of streamwise inter-vortex spacing tends to dominate this increase.The numerical results related to cavitating vortex street flow behind a blunt trailing edge hydrofoil NACA 0009 subjected to forced oscillation have shown that the induced dynamic response due to the oscillation is influenced by the presence of cavitation. In the lock-in regime, cavitation appears to widen the upper bound of this regime and cause a decrease in the added moment of inertia and an increase in the added damping. Moreover, the timing of the vortex shedding changes with the presence of cavitation. On the other hand, the oscillation of the hydrofoil affects the dynamics of cavitation in terms of cavitation inception and cavity length. Generally, the cavitation inception number gradually increases with the forced oscillation frequency. Meanwhile, approaching the bounds of the lock-in regime will cause local decreases in cavitation inception numbers. Besides, the length of the cavitating wake is influenced by the variation of the oscillation frequency, and the maximum cavitating wake length occurs under stationary conditions.

    Thesis abstract: Over the last decade, biosensing has been moving towards the miniaturized and cost-effective point-of-care (POC) testing. Even though microfluidics is becoming a key enabling technology for POC testing, the need for robust peripheral equipment has been a notable limiting factor in extending its prevalence. By manipulating microchannels' geometry and surface properties, capillary-driven microfluidics can control fluids spontaneously, reducing the need for external instrumentation. This advantage is becoming more accessible, considering that additive manufacturing technologies are reaching a high level of maturity that allows cost-effective and rapid fabrication of three-dimensional (3D) features down to the sub-millimeter scale. Therefore, capillary-driven microfluidics are achieving higher technological readiness.A key component within the field of capillary-driven microfluidics is the capillary valve. The capillary valve can automatically stop and actuate fluid flows depending on the molecular interactions between the liquid and the microchannel surfaces. However, a major concern for these valves is the presence of unwanted diffusion and mixing during the valve function, leading to cross-contamination between reagents or even with the sample. This thesis studied different methods in the literature to stop and actuate the flow as the two main stages of these valves. Then, passing over the state-of-the-art, a novel 3D diffusion-free capillary valve was developed: the ¿-valve. This valve incorporates an air gap between solutions to eliminate diffusion between them. Based on the valve's distinctive configuration, the capillarity of the microfluidic circuit displaces the air gap at a predefined time to actuate without producing bubbles into the circuit. The proposed valve's design and study were performed via numerical simulation and experimental assays, while 3D printing (3DP) was employed to fabricate the microfluidic devices.The ¿-valve's functionality, single and in array, was proven and compared with the conventional capillary valves. Then, it was applied to the precise control of reagents for biosensing, demonstrated by two different competitive immunoassays via (i) the subsequent washing step for the lateral flow assay of cortisol, and (ii) the valve array for the sequential delivery of sample and three reagents to detect benzodiazepine quantitatively. The sensitivity was enhanced by avoiding the reagent diffusive premixing when using the ¿-valve by approximately 40%. As a result, the proposed capillary valve is a promising capillary component for conducting automated immunoassays at POC.In conclusion, the novel capillary valve addresses a current biosensing sensitivity issue coming from reagent diffusive premixing, and together with other disruptive capillary-driven circuit components, paves the way for truly packing lab-on-a-chip without requiring a lab around the chip. In this regard, the next generation of capillary-driven microfluidic devices will be promising tools offering (i) miniaturized features needing fewer samples and reagents, (ii) non-costly POC testing without peripheral instrumentation, (iii) automated, preprogrammed, and easy-to-use for non-expert users, as well as (iv) sensitive, precise and reliable based on novel 3D designs employing surface properties. This is owing to the recent advancements in microfabrication based on additive manufacturing extending 3D forming freedom.

    Thesis abstract: The development of more accurate, computationally efficient and practical methodologies for a better understanding of dynamic soil-structure interaction and prediction of ground-borne vibration levels in the vicinity of man-made induced vibration sources is greatly sought-after by practising engineers, as these vibration levels might cause harmful effects on buildings and/or on their occupants. This dissertation aims to develop an approach that requires low computational resources to simulate the response of pile-soil systems accurately and is intended to be simplistic in formulation terms towards a more practical methodology. Thus, an efficient, fully coupled three-dimensional approach for solving pile-soil interaction problems is presented in the current dissertation, as well as its numerical and experimental validation. The proposed approach employs classic rod and Euler-Bernoulli theories to model the pile. The soil, in the presence of the pile's corresponding cavity, is modelled as an elastic half-space using an emerging meshless methodology that approximates the dynamic unknown states of the soil to linear combinations of the fundamental solution of the medium. Thus, this methodology, referred to as the singular boundary method, is adapted in this dissertation to deal with three-dimensional elastodynamic problems. Furthermore, the proposed piled foundation model allows the rotational motions and reaction torques associated with the pile to be accounted for in the pile-soil interaction, and their contribution to the accuracy of the scheme is assessed.To achieve an acceptable trade-off between the accuracy and numerical performance of the methodology, a comprehensive criterion to define the discretization scheme is also proposed. The robustness of the approach is studied in the context of single-pile and pile-group systems, the latter with and without attaching its corresponding pile cap, where the relevance of including torsional motions in the piles-cap coupling is discussed. Comparisons with existing approaches show that the formulation provides strong computational advantages to detailed modelling approaches, such as the ones based on the three-dimensional finite element-boundary element method, as well as overcoming the fundamental limitations of plainstrain and axisymmetric methods. Finally, a set of experimental tests on a full-scale single-pile foundation and 2x2 pile-group system embedded in layered soil were conducted to validate the modelling strategy for the simulated responses.

    Thesis abstract: Meshless methodologies have emerged as a valuable tool in the field of computational acoustics, offering an efficientapproach to model complex acoustic phenomena. These innovative numerical techniques offer a promising alternative totraditional mesh-based methods to deal with scattering and radiation acoustic wave propagation problems. Unlikeconventional mesh-based approaches, meshless methods do not rely on structured grids of the domain or its boundary,enabling more flexible and adaptive discretisation. The absence of a mesh eliminates the need for time-consuming gridgeneration and refinement, simplifying the simulation process and reducing the computational effort. This efficiency isespecially valuable in addressing large-scale acoustic simulations, such as those encountered in environmental noiseassessments and underwater acoustics.This dissertation is particularly centred on the study and development of a novel group of numerical meshless methodsrelated to boundary collocation approaches. These methods are employed to address problems involving the propagation ofacoustic waves in unbounded domains. The novel approaches presented in this research offer several benefits with respectto existing methodologies, in terms of robustness, accuracy and computational efficiency. Furthermore, in contrast to a fullythree-dimensional analysis, the approaches presented in this dissertation are formulated in the two-and-a-half-dimensionaldomain. This domain is particularly suited for scenarios where the system is subjected to longitudinally moving loads orsources and where the geometry of the system remains longitudinally invariant.The meshless methodologies developed in this thesis mainly rely on two of the most well-established meshless methods inthe field: the singular boundary method and the method of fundamental solutions. In the first instance, an approach based ona two-and-a-half-dimensional version of the singular boundary method is proposed and studied to address acousticradiation and scattering problems. Subsequently, its applicability for real case acoustic scenarios is evaluated throughsimulations involving point source diffraction in the presence of thin noise barriers. As probably representing the mostsignificant novelty of this dissertation, a hybrid method that combines the singular boundary method and the method offundamental solutions is introduced. It is specifically devised to tackle acoustic wave propagation problems featuringcomplex boundary geometries with corners and sharp edges. Finally, two modification techniques are proposed to enhancethe previously mentioned approach based on the two-and-a-half-dimensional sin- gular boundary method. The Burton¿Millerformulation in a first instance, and a dual surface scheme in the second. These modifications aim to overcome the issue ofspurious eigensolutions, which arises from the non-uniqueness solution problem associated with boundary collocationmethods. To comprehensively assess the capabilities and performance of the proposed meshless methods, the availableanalytical solutions and alternative numerical strategies such as the well-known boundary element method are also utilisedin various designed benchmark problems.

    Thesis abstract: The primary goal of this thesis is to unlock the potential of hemp stalk, an agricultural byproduct that currently lacks practical applications. The overarching aim is to promote the use of eco-friendly materials, reduce waste, emphasize recyclability, and embrace the principles of a circular economy, all while combating climate change by adopting more sustainable materials in lieu of synthetic ones.To achieve these objectives, an extensive review of existing literature served as an initial step to explore the untapped potential of hemp stalk. This thorough exploration identified five possible applications: acoustic insulation materials, thermal insulation materials, particleboard, coffered ceiling, and parquet flooring.Subsequent research delved into identifying suitable plant-based binders and environmentally responsible manufacturing techniques.Following this material-focused phase, an initial investigation was carried out by experimenting with various materials and manufacturing methods to ascertain which of the five applications held the most promise.The results were particularly encouraging for insulation materials, although coffered ceiling also displayed significant potential. The insulation materials utilize recycled cardboard as a binder and employ manufacturing methods with minimal energy consumption during mixing and drying, resulting in low carbon emissions and sustainable materials.Once the material was selected, efforts were made to enhance its properties. This involved incorporating a plant-based coating (comprising arabic gum and colophony) to provide protection and introducing a crosslinking agent (citric acid) to bolster durability and material properties. These additions were meticulously assessed through a battery of tests related to thermal and acoustic insulation, mechanical characteristics, water resistance, fire resistance, and chemical analysis, such as FTIR spectroscopy.To validate the material¿s performance, durability tests were conducted, exposing samples to humidity cycles over 0, 3, 6, and 9 months, alongside a scaled-down life cycle analysis. The end result was a material boasting superior thermal insulation properties compared to commercial alternatives, albeit with slightly lower acoustic insulation performance. Notably, citric acid was found to marginally enhance the material¿s durability.Furthermore, it was determined that different coatings could be selected depending on the application environment, thereby optimizing specific properties.

    Thesis abstract: The introduction of the intermittent and unpredictable solar and wind power into the electrical grid is pushing hydraulic turbines to work for longer periods of time in off-design conditions. Under these circumstances, it is necessary to investigate the prediction of structural damage induced on hydraulic turbines by flow instabilities. For this reason, the present work aims firstly to characterize the rotating vortex rope and vaneless space vortex structures, then to understand the fluid-added modal coefficients induced by the water surrounding runners and finally to quantify the fatigue damage inflicted on runner blades. In this sense, experimental onboard and off-board measurements of strain, force, torque, pressure, displacement and acceleration on different components of a Kaplan turbine model were performed when operated at part load, speed-no-load and during ramping of load. The data was analyzed in the time and frequency domains as well as using a novel experimental methodology to infer fatigue damage on runner blades from blade strains. Additionally, two new methods, which only use shaft strains and off-board measurements, were developed to compute fatigue damage. On the other hand, new numerical and experimental methodologies, combined with proposed analytical models, were employed to investigate the fluid-added modal coefficients of confined rotors partially submerged in water. In summary, the present work has permitted to conclude that speed-no-load, and specially with cavitation, is the most damaging operating condition, that the fatigue damage on runner blades can be predicted using shaft strains and that rotor dynamic responses depend on the water surrounding the runner, the rotating speed and the ramp acceleration and direction.

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.
