  • NUEVO SISTEMA DE REVISIÓN E ARTÍCULOS

    Estimados revisores de RIMNI.
    Estamos completando un nuevo sistema de revisión de los artículos de RIMNI en Scipedia que pensamos puede mejorar varias de las prestaciones del actual.

    Basicamente se vuelve al clásico sistema de revisión por dos revisores seleccionados por la revista. Los autores solo recibirán la información de la revisión de su artículo una vez finalizada esta.

    En breve os informaremos de los detalles de cómo  se implementará el nuevo sistema de revisión.

    Gracias por vuestra colaboración con RIMNI.

    Cordialmente

    Eugenio Oñate

    • History of documents (revisions)

      During the process of reviewing the articles, different changes are usually made in the document, and in some cases, it can be useful to revisit a previous version. You, as reviewer or author, can always access the different versions of the document through the "History" menu option (next to "Review").

      In the History page, you only need to click on the date of the revision to access that particular version. There is also a tool that allows to compare the changes between two versions.

      This utility to save the document revisions is also available (just for the authors) once the document has been published. Its main goal is to allow the authors to add data files, videos and any other additional information, which was not included in the first version.

    • Access to previous versions of a document

      Dear colleagues:

      During the process of reviewing the articles, different changes are usually made in the document, and in some cases, it can be useful to revisit a previous version. As you may already know, you can always access the different versions of the document through the "History" menu option (next to "Review").

      In the History page, you only need to click on the date of the revision to access that particular version. There is also a tool that allows to compare the changes between two versions.

      This utility to save the document revisions is also available once it has been published and has been included to allow the authors to add data files, videos and any other additional information, which was not included in the first version.

    • Acceso al formulario de áreas de especialidad / temas de revisión

      Dado que varios de vosotros lo habéis solicitado, se ha habilitado la siguiente dirección para que podáis acceder al formulario de selección de áreas de especialidad / temas de revisión:

       https://www.scipedia.com/sj/select_topics/19187

      Tened en cuenta que es necesario que hayáis hecho previamente "login" en vuestra cuenta en Scipedia, antes de acceder a ese formulario.

    • Recordatorio: Seleccionar áreas de especialidad

      Para aquellos que no lo hayáis hecho todavía:

      Es muy importante que rellenéis lo antes posible la información del formulario de selección de áreas de especialidad, para que podamos poner en marcha los procedimientos de revisión de RIMNI.

      Muchas gracias por vuestra colaboración.

    • Edit your manuscript during the review

      If you are familiar with the Wiki format, you can make any changes in the manuscript using the Wiki editor ('Edit' menu option) or the Wiki visual editor ('VisualEditor' menu option). These are usually the preferred options in case of minor changes in the manuscript.
      In the case of major changes, it is probably easiest to make the necessary changes in the original Word or LaTeX document and then reimport it, by using the 'RE-IMPORT' option of the right hand side panel.

    • Proceso de revisión de RIMNI en Scipedia

      Nos gustaría daros unas indicaciones sobre el proceso de revisión de RIMNI en Scipedia, que esperamos os sean útiles.

      La revisión de los artículos se hará por un grupo de evaluadores, que se seleccionarán quasi-automáticamente del Panel de Evaluadores de RIMNI en función de su área de especialidad y la del artículo (escrito en español, portugués o inglés). Cada posible evaluador seleccionado recibirá un email para aceptar o rechazar la invitación a evaluar el manuscrito. Una vez aceptada la invitación, el revisor podrá abrir un diálogo con los autores a través del foro de revisión del documento (accesible a través de la pestaña "Review" de la página del documento).  Este diálogo será transparente para el autor y todos los evaluadores implicados, cuyos nombres permanecerán anónimos.

      ​En cualquier momento de este diálogo, el revisor puede emitir su recomendación, pulsando el correspondiente botón del panel “PEER REVIEW INFORMATION”. Esta recomendación es reversible mientras el proceso de revisión continúe.

      El artículo se aceptará o rechazará, cuando un mínimo de revisores así lo determine, en función de una serie de pesos relativos al “prestigio” de cada revisor. Dicho prestigio variará en función de la actividad del revisor en el proceso de evaluación y otras actividades para las que se requiera su colaboración con la revista.

      Si tenéis cualquier duda o comentario al respecto, no dudéis en transmitírnoslos a través de este foro.

    • Institutional profile

    • Coffee Talk - "Augmented and virtual reality applied to the Construction sector", by Oscar de Coss and Sara Rebollo

       

      Wednesday, July 12th, 2017. Time: 15h

      Place: C-110 Room, UPC North Campus, Barcelona.

      Abstract

      There is no doubt about the attractiveness of the augmented and virtual reality technologies, also for the largest IT companies but still it is not clear their real value excepting for entertainment, in the videogame industry.

      Nevertheless, there are some initiatives trying to show that it could have some room for these technologies in the AEC sector, as not only an expensive and dazzling novelties, but also to be a useful tool.

      This talk would like to contribute to this debate. It includes a review of both technologies, describing of two of the most recent devices, HTC Vive and MS Hololens, as well as software, such as unity 3d and Vuforia, used to create AR/VR experiences, and a couple of examples to assess their potential practical use.

      CV of the speakers

      Mr. Oscar de Coss, is a civil engineer and has recently finished his Master in Structural and Construction Engineering at the UPC with a work entitled "Augmented reality applied to construction".

      Ms. Sara Rebollo is currently finishing her civil engineering degree, and is working in a final thesis about how to apply virtual reality experiences to strength the awareness of the workers about the risks in a building site, as a possible activity in the occupational safety and health plan.

    • CIMNE Seminar -"Brief introduction to Discrete Exterior Calculus", by Dr. Rafael Herrera Guzmán

       

      Wednesday, July 5th, 2017. Time: 12h.

      Place: O.C. Zienkiewicz Conference Room, C1 Building, UPC Campus Nord, Barcelona.

      ABSTRACT

      Discrete Exterior Calculus is a recent method to discretize partial differential equations using concepts from Differential Geometry and Topology, which allow rewriting equations in an intrinsic manner.

      The main steps in such an approach are as follows:

      1. Write out the PDE in terms of smooth differential operators.
      2. Replace the smooth domain, variables, and operators by their DEC counterparts.
      3. Use DEC-based analysis to set up an appropriate linear system of equations.

      The resulting linear system can then be solved by existing numerical methods to approximate solutions to the PDE.

      SPEAKER CV

      Dr. Rafael Herrera Guzmán obtained his Degree in Mathematics at the UNAM in 1993 with the medal “Gabino Barreda”. He is PhD in Mathematics by the Oxford University, England, in 1998. He is a researcher at CIMAT from 2005 and member of the SNI Level II within the Physics, Mathematics and Earth Sciences Area.

      Previously, Dr. Herrera has worked at Yale University, University of California at Riverside, Princeton University and City University of New York. He has been awarded with the “Guggenheim Fellowship” (2002-2003) and a “Research Fellowship” by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (2005-2006).

      New developments in computational aeroacoustics for the simulation of human phonation using the Variational Multiscale Method

      by Arnau Pont (CIMNE)
          
      Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 - 15h   
      O.C. Zienkiewicz Room, C1, Campus Nord UPC, Barcelona
       
      Abstract

      The numerical calculation of fricative sounds with a FEM code in realistic 3D geometries requires a very fine spatial discretization in order to capture all relevant turbulent scales, which leads to heavy parallel computations. For low speed flows, like in the present case, conservative compressible flow formulations might fail, for which the more affordable incompressible approach is often used. However, most available formulations in Computational Aeroacoustics based on incompressible flow either require modeling acoustic source terms or are not valid at the near field, where flow perturbations are still non-negligible. Therefore, new developments in both incompressible and compressible formulations and the corresponding results will be presented.

    • How to embed a Youtube video in your document

      It is easy to embed a Youtube video in your presentation. You just need to copy the URL of your video, edit the section of your presentation and insert the following code. 

      {| style="font-size:75%; color: #222222; border: 1px solid darkgray; background: #f3f3f3; table-layout: fixed; width:100%;"
      |- 
      | {{#evt:service=youtube|id=[Youtube link https://youtube_link]|alignment=center}}
      |- style="text-align: center;" 
      | Video 1. Caption. 
      |}

      Finally, overwrite the text "youtube_link" with the URL of your video, and replace the text "Video 1. Caption." with the caption of your video. 

      The result will be similar to that shown in section 5.1.2 of the following document:

      The role of the Orthogonal Sub-Grid Scales - Variational Multi-Scale (OSGS-VMS) method in describing the Burgers "turbulence" phenomena

      by Camilo Bayona (CIMNE)
          
      Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 - 15h   
      O.C. Zienkiewicz Room, C1, Campus Nord UPC, Barcelona
       
      Abstract
      The Orthogonal Sub-Grid Scales-Variational Multi-Scale (OSGS-VMS) method can accurately approximate Burgers "turbulence" (a highly simplified version of the incompressible Navier–Stokes turbulence), only with the addition of purely dissipative numerical terms. The analysis of a one-dimensional Burgers equation in the Fourier space allows to clarify the scale dependence of the numerical diffusion introduced by the OSGS-VMS method. In particular, results can be contrasted with Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) and with a spectral Large Eddy Simulation (LES).
