[EN] Virtual labs can be adopted as a complement of the university traditional teaching methodologies. This
paper describes the results of a teaching pilot project which enabled the use of a commercial processsimulator
(Hysys) in the implementation of five virtual labs related to three important unit operations in
Chemical Engineering: liquid-liquid extraction, distillation, and heat exchange. The software provided a
new approach to the analysis and interpretation of lab results by students. The educational effectiveness
of the implemented project was evaluated through questionnaires, and the results showed that in average
more of 85% of the student considered Hysys of great utility in their learning process. Project...

[EN] This article shows how students can approach hall acoustics problems in a rst degreecourse with the aid of Mathematics subjects. In this way, students nd a direct applicationto their future workplace of the acquired knowledge in Mathematics subjects. This projectis located in the Grado de Ingenier a de Sistemas de Telecomunicaci on, Sonido e Imagenof the Escuela Polit ecnica Superior de Gandia in the Universitat Polit ecnica de Val encia

[EN] Celtic or Rattleback Stone is a solid that if it is rotated as top exhibits a surprising behaviour.
Using a stereoscopic camera and digital monitoring techniques, we capture its
movement. According the laws of classical mechanics, justify its evolution “rattling” and
emphasize the high didactic potential that have these amazing systems for engineering students.

[EN] In this paper we describe the process of designing and developing of interactive digital resources adapted to each student. It is shown the process which the authors have followed during the last years in order to generate virtual learning objects for the learning and teaching of Statistics. It is also shown the main features that the digital resources must fulfil and the different possibilities of use. Finally we describe the advantages of the designing of digital resources using author tools, and the integration of several tools as LaTeX, R, GeoGebra, etc. which let us obtain educational resources adaptable for...

[EN] In this work we introduce a virtual laboratory, APERIODIC DIFFRACT, developed in Matlab GUI (Graphical User Interface) as an informatics tool for teaching the diffractive properties of aperiodic gratings. This GUI allows the student to generate aperiodic sequences by iterating and lets to study the spectra for different iterating orders.

[EN] In this paper we present an application for Android mobile device able of measuring the
fundamental frequency of a sound very precisely. This application may be used in diverse
fields as in music for tuning musical instruments, in physics for measuring the Doppler
effect or in speech recognition systems to determine the fundamental frequency of the voice.
Specifically, in this paper we present some examples in the field of physics related to the
Doppler effect for sound waves
