In this paper we summarize the research activities at the Instituto de Telecomunicações--Pólo de Aveiro and University of Aveiro, in the field of fiber Bragg grating based sensors and their applications in dynamic measurements for Structural Health Monitoring of slender structures such as towers. In this work we describe the implementation of an optical(More)
The present paper presents a comparison of seismic provisions of three seismic design codes, the Philippine code, Eurocode 8 and the American code, to the most common ordinary residential frames of standard occupancy. Regular and irregular reinforced concrete frames were analyzed and compared for four storey building types. The response spectrum and the(More)
Partial molar volumes at infinite dilution have been obtained for 3 perfluoroalkylalkanes (PFAA) in n-octane at 298.15 K from experimental apparent molal volumes. The results were interpreted estimating the contributions of the hydrogenated and perfluorinated segments to the partial molar volume. For this reason, partial molar volumes at infinite dilution(More)
Teleconsultation involves the use of technology so that the medical professionals and patients can interact with each other bringing health to where ever it is needed. Although it has been demonstrated to be feasible and effective its sustainability remains an important question. This paper presents the results of a literature review on teleconsultation,(More)
According to the Ministry of Health (2006), Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is hearing loss caused by prolonged exposure to noise. It is characterized as sensorineural hearing loss and is usually bilateral, irreversible, and progressive while the exposure to noise continues. A NIHL is a predictable and preventable disease with an epidemiologically(More)

Acknowledgements I would like to thank my supervisor Luís Veiga for all the effort he has put on helping me complete this work, which proved to be a worthy and ever too interesting challenge, but not impossible. I would also like to thank all the Distributed Systems Group students and professors from INESC-ID which helped me along the way, providing useful(More)
Nonlinear structural analyses allow reproducing in a more realistic sense the behaviour of structures subjected to several types of complex loading conditions, e.g. earthquakes. However, it is largely recognized that these analyses normally generate a considerable amount of results, being difficult its interpretation. Over the last years considerable(More)
