On unsteady open-channel flows: a contribution to non-stationary sediment transport in runoff flows and to unstable non-Newtonian mudflow studies
(2016-07-01) [Tese de doutorado]
This thesis was motivated by the need to better understand time-dependent features related to mudflow evolution on natural sloped channels. Basically, the research is focused on events that are confined in channels formed ...
Application of Volterra series in nonlinear mechanical system identification and in structural health monitoring problems
(2016-03-04) [Tese de doutorado]
Nonlinear structures are frequent in structural dynamics, specially considering screwed components, with joints, clearance or flexible components presenting large displacements. In this sense the monitoring of systems based ...
