“Study and modelling of the rheological behaviour of powdery ceramic materials during mould filling”. ABSTRACT: A software for the simulation of the rheological behaviour of particulate material was developed. Thanks to this software, new atomised powder feeding systems were designed in the ceramic industry.

“Development of an integrated tool for the safe and efficient implementation of shallow geothermal energy harvesting systems”.
ABSTRACT: Development of a simplified heat exchange model for the preliminary assessment of the suitability of a low enthalpy geothermal installation based on energy needs and ground properties.
“Modelling the sintering of ceramic tiles using the SOVS model”.
ABSTRACT: Development of a ceramic tile sintering model to evaluate the shrinkage, densification and curvature of tiles during firing and cooling.
“Research and development of a methodology for the implementation of digital twins in key manufacturing processes for the Valencian industrial fabric”.
SUMMARY: development of an ad-hoc discrete event simulation tool in Java. It also includes the creation of an OPC-UA client for data exchange and interconnectivity between the model and the plant. The tool can be used as a digital twin in ceramic tile manufacturing.
