[EN] Normally, classroom problems are solved using over-simplified models which allow to obtain
the solution manually. However, these problems are addressed in the industry with
very sophisticated software packages that have long learning curves. For obvious reasons
of time and space, this professional software cannot be used in the classroom activities.
In this work, it is built LPRES Library that emulates the elements of the professional
ESPSS Library and it is possible to simulate liquid rocket engines using EcosimPro
LPRES library employs simple models that the student manages to solve classroom
problems but now they can address the simulation of real systems with many elements.

[EN] This work presents the design and construction of a spectrometer made in the laboratory and the development
of mathematical models needed to process and analyze the acquired spectrum. For modeling functions
it has been used LabVIEW program. The aim is to bring this type of instrumentation to engineering students
from both, physical and mathematical point of view. The application has been successfully integrated
in the learning strategies of the course Sensores Fisicos, Master Universitario en Sensores Para Aplicaciones
Industriales at the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia. As an example, we have characterized
different light sources emitting in different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.

[EN] In this work a study of the mechanical properties of a biodegradable polymer, poly(lactic acid) (PLA),
and its variation due to the addition of 25 wt % of another biodegradable polymer, poly(hydroxybutyrate)
(PHB) is presented. The PLA sample and the PLA-PHB (75:25) blend were characterized in terms of
their mechanical properties by means of tensile test measurements, microhardness and nanoindentation
with the aim of providing a comprehensive approach of the mechanical properties of these materials to
facilitate the students of material science understanding the mechanical properties of biodegradable polymers.

[EN] We present some control characters and digits present in the Spanish national identity
document as an example of the application of modular arithmetics to the design of error
correcting codes. This activity has been developed inside the ESTALMAT programme for
the stimulation of mathematical talent and in the summer scientific campuses organised
