Some restorers used to apply molten beeswax on their granite surfaces to stop imminent deterioration of the monuments. At first, this treatment was a good solution to consolidate the stone, but with time it resulted counterproductive. This method allows removal and cleaning of wax and other contaminants from porous stones in historical monuments and artworks using nondestructive means through laser technology.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Beafire – simulating fire resistance of reinforced concrete beamsThe Beafire technology consists of an originally developed algorithm for finding fire resistance of reinforced concrete beams and a prototype of an engineering application based on it. The algorithm couples 1D mechanical modelling with 2D simulation of cross-section temperature distribution what makes it very efficient. The application consists of GUI and stimulation engine modules.

This interesting project gives the University the leading position in the sector of energy efficient building.
University of Vigo posted this:Lateral connection system by removable clamps for I or H profilesThe presented system allows detachable lateral connections, at right angles, type ‘cross beam to column flange’ of I and H standard profiles made of steel. The system uses standard mounting clamps without previous specific machining operations (as may be welding or drilling).
University of Vigo posted this:Removable and reconfigurable system for corner connection of square tube profilesThis removable connection system can be adapted to the size of the section, by adjusting the length of the connecting bolts, using the same flanges. Is usable for a wide range of standard profiles, which avoids the need for a flange size for each profile section.
University of Vigo posted this:Removable system for continuous connection of square tube profilesThe removable system allows mounting on each profile separately, joining then in continuity with plates at the head of each of the flanges. The use of anti-buckling clamps prevents local buckling of the walls of the profiles, associated with tightening of flanges. Flanges have nerves to reduce stresses. The same flanges are valid for connecting different sized sections of square tube profiles.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Diagnosis of the Building Pathologies by qualified and quantified images.The research group "Image, Metrics and Architecture" from the University of Alcalá along with the startup Voar has developed the tool for the diagnosis of pathologies in the construction by the images processing. The images are captured with digital, thermal imagers, with the use of drones and robots to enter to areas with difficult access and from them, the processing that facilitates the diagnosis is carried out with a software. This tool is useful for conservation and maintenance companies of buildings, real estate corporations, insurance companies or certification to achieve collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Machine-to-Cloud Management System of Distributed Heterogeneous DevicesThe Specialized Processors Architecture Laboratory (SPA-Lab group) research group from University of Alicante has developed a system which improves remote control systems processes of different kind of devices geographically spread, through the Cloud. This suggested system provides independence between application layer and remote-controlled devices. Its main advantage is the homogeneity of mechanisms and functions for their interaction with the devices no matter their nature and the scope of the application. The supplied technology may be used in sectors needing monitoring and controlling a wide range of devices. The research team supplies the companies both the “know-how” for the necessary adaptation and implementation of the system and the possibility of licensing this technology.

This method consists in separating the two signals which comprises the probe signal to obtain the difference between amplification band and attenuation stimulated band or vice versa. The group is looking for companies in the technology sector and telecommunications to reach licensing agreements, collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.

It also allows dynamic strain measurements completing a full strain measurement per second in each of the 50000 measurement points.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Home automation and smart environmentsThe Group has been working in the development of technologies that integrate the management of the entire set of electronic devices existing in a home. The group is specialized in providing home automation solutions to people with mobility problems, such as elderly people, children or disabled people. It also is experienced in the development of computer systems for energy management of housing. Innovative aspects The research group has significant experience in developing automated systems for all types of environments. The possibility to develop specific integration solutions for any type of device used in a home (lighting, security system, wireless appliances and entertainment equipment, sensor network environment, etc.). They can also integrate all kinds of control systems and power generation to facilitate saving and energy efficiency of buildings. The group is able to develop new solutions based on the requirements and user needs. Main advantages of the technology The technology developed by the research group is established in the project metalTIC - Digital Home. This project, conducted for the Federation of Employers of the Metal of the Province of Alicante (FEMPA), has been the design and development of a set that simulates a house with the latest innovations in TICC to provide services at home. The 50 square meters house has a living room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, showing key concepts such as energy control, monitoring and security, comfort and leisure, communications, accessibility and management.
