Seabream (Sparus aurata) production is growing in theMediterranean and the evaluation of its quality concerns both producers andconsumers alike. In this area, most of the sea bream culture is carried out incages but there is also production in land-based facilities. The culturesystem,and specifically its degree of intensity, greatly influences final(More)
The objective of the work is to improve the design rules of rectangular aquaculture tanks in order to achieve better culture conditions and improve water use efficiency. Particle tracking velocimetry techniques (PTV) are used to evaluate the flow pattern in the tanks. PTV is a non-intrusive experimental method for investigating fluid flows using tracer(More)
Porous titanium specimens have been produced by means of the space holder method. Titanium grade 3 (TiCP3) has been used as material and ammonium bicarbonate as spacer. Process parameters (compaction pressure, metal grain size range and spacer volume) influence on porosity morphology and distribution and bending strength has been analysed. The results(More)
The excellent properties of Ti have resulted in its generalised use for bone implants. However, Ti is very stiff in comparison with human cortical bone, and this creates problems of bone weakening and loosening of the implant. This article discusses the mechanical properties (flexural and compressive strength, and stiffness) of porous Ti–6Al–4V specimens(More)
The suitability of using acoustic Doppler velocimetry (ADV) to study fish swimming activity is evaluated in this study. ADV makes it possible to detect and quantify the relationship between fish density and the turbulence generated by fish swimming activity and to show differences in fish swimming patterns during the scotophase (dark period) and photophase(More)
Porous Ti6Al4V samples were produced by microsphere sintering. The Zero-Order Reaction Rate Model and Transition State Theory were used to model the sintering process and to estimate the bending strength of the porous samples developed. The evolution of the surface area during the sintering process was used to obtain sintering parameters (sintering(More)
Land-based production of sea bream (S. aurata) isone of the alternative types of aquaculture for different areas of theMediterranean coast, but its future development will mainly depend both on thecapacity to make this technology compatible with other uses of the land and thecapacity to make it cost-effective, especially in comparison with production(More)
Ceramic materials represent around 45% of construction and demolition waste, and originate not only from the building process, but also as bricks and tiles rejected from the industry. Despite the fact that these wastes are mostly used as road sub-base or construction backfill materials, they can also be employed as supplementary cementitious materials, or(More)
