Estudio de la influencia de la triaxialidad en la aparición de grietas y evolución de la fractura en soldaduras

(Español) CADE aplica esta metodología para el análisis de soldaduras como herramienta para la detección de fallo en servicio o en las fases previas de diseño en aquellas soldaduras que por su gran tamaño no pueden ser evaluadas con métodos tradicionales.

INNOSPRAY® Waste Drying: Towards Zero Discharge

Sewage depuration, seen from a simplistic, general point of view (omitting some treatment secondary processes) is no more than a series of processes aimed to eliminate suspended or dissolved solids in a pond of water which is required to be as purest as possible. Every regular wastewater flow / sewages treatments are pretend to perform … Read more
