Fulfilling its commitment in the advance and development of technology, Calpe I.T. and its researchers are involved in some research projects: 

IRONESS: Develoment and application of an integral solution to corrugation in railroads based on a theoretical-experimental analysis of the rail

IRONESS: Develoment and application of an integral solution to corrugation in railroads based on a theoretical-experimental analysis of the rail

FEDER INTERCONNECTA 2015 Project leaded by ArcelorMittal and in partnership with TECSA

In situ measurements, determination of the relationship between dynamic parameters and corrugation, and generation of a model and database to diagnosing and proposing efficient solutions for wearing.

IRONESS Project consists in developing an integral solution for diagnosing corrugation and providing an effective solution for each case, allowing the effective reduction of the maintenance costs of railways (more information)
Intensimmetry tests for characterization of elevator components

Intensimmetry tests for characterization of elevator components

Research Group TEP 157, from the Plan Andaluz de Investigación PAI, and subsidised by Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía (2010)

Vibroacoustic characterisation of the elevator component to fulfil the requirements of the CTE.

Intensimmetry tests according to UNE-EN ISO 9614-2 for characterisation of elevator traction machines, in order to verify if they fulfilled the requirements of the CTE regulation.
Development of a railway barrier with a triple functionality: wind, energy and noise (Tripantalla)

Development of a railway barrier with a triple functionality: wind, energy and noise (Tripantalla)

Requested by the research group TEP131, Elasticidad y Resistencia de Materiales from Seville University

Members of Calpe I.T. were part of the project "Tripantalla", intended to develop a new concept of railway sound barrier, its verification using computational methods and in situ validation by using experimental methods.

Calpe was part of this project to perform the sound absorbance tests of the different materials proposed, the simulation models for testing the effectiveness of the barriers for reducing noise propagation in a testing area, and the in situ noise tests for validating the barriers.
System for designing and calculating optimised pressure vessels

System for designing and calculating optimised pressure vessels

Project in collaboration with Research group TEP 157, from the Plan Andaluz de Investigación PAI, and subsidised by Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía. The subsidy was completely covered by the Consejería de Economía y Conocimiento of the Junta de Andalucía and by the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad.

Optimised pressure vessels advanced system, which allows to calculate the vessel and generate an optimised version of it.

This project is a software tool to design optimised pressure vessels, and validating these equipment after repairing works. This system is an improves the existing tools by adding optimisation algorithms. Main innovations of this project come from the distributed system, in relation to new devices and marketing platforms that are now available.
