Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an highly disabling airways pathology, with a high prevalence and a significanteconomic and social cost. It is caused by a complex variety of interactions between genes and the environment that give rise to severalclinical phenotypes. New therapeutic targets have recently been found, giving hope for improving the living...

Design and maintenance of future pressurized fuselage composite structures is mainly influenced by the requirement to cope with accidental impact damages. Current aerospace certification process for composite structures is derived from deterministic approaches used for metallic airframe design. But within this concept, the stochastic nature of impact damages in composite...

High-fidelity flow simulation is one of the main goals to pursue in the research towards exascale computing. This capability will allow a cheaper exploration of aeronautical and automotive designs that fulfill energy consumption and noise emissions policies of the European agencies. In this project, the integration of three high-performance tools will be studied as a...

The European consumption of plastics increased from 24,6 Mtons in 1993 to 39,7 Mtons in 2003 and its growth rate exceeds that of the economy as a whole. At the same time, polymer recyclers and manufacturing industries have a problem buying feed materials and secondary polymers of sufficient volume and quality, as a result of the pull of China and India on all raw material...
