CDIF is a R&D center within the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). It belongs to the TECNIO network , a technology transfer initiative from ACC10, the Technology Innovation Agency of Catalonia.

The reserarch activities are developed by a group of Ph.Ds in industrial engineering, with over 20 years of experience in the field of turbomachinery vibrations, diagnosis and preventive maintenance, damage detection and fluid dynamics.

Our goal is to provide technological support to industry worldwide in areas related to the field of power generation groups diagnosis, focusing on hydropower.
Our center offers technology transfer services to industry by means of consultancy and technological innovation projects in our areas of expertise: analysis and diagnosis of vibration problems in turbomachinery, remote on-line monitoring, predictive maintenance, fluid dynamics studies and on-site specialized training.

We are part of the UPC's Mechanical Engineering, Fluids and Aeronautics Ph.D. program. Our main research lines are: Structural Analysis, Diagnosis, Fluid Dynamics Simulation and Cavitation. We actively participate in leading scientifical societies/meetings/congreses in our area of ​​expertise and our research results are published in top tier scientific journals internationally.
