The political pressure in favour of multi- and inter-modal transport has oriented the focus on sustainable transport solutions. Inter-modal transport is one of the (partial) possible solutions, but its efficiency strongly depends on the places where the container terminals are located. The number of possible locations on large scale networks such as the European one becomes rapidly too large to be taken as input by exact location methods. That’s why the first goal of this paper is to outline a method that helps to identify the best potential locations out of the thousands of potential nodes. The basic idea is to use the flows of commodities and their geographic spreading as input to determine a set of good potential locations for transfer inter-modal terminals. This set can, in a second step, be used as input for already well known optimal location models in order to identify the optimal locations for container terminals in Europe. The complete methodology is illustrated by means on a case study that concerns multi-modal transport over the whole trans-European networks. [less ▲]

Um Abschätzungen der S-Wellengeschwindigkeit für die verschiedenen geologischen Formationen in der Region zu erhalten, wurde eine grosse Anzahl von Arraymessungen durchgeführt. Das Ziel einer solchen Messung ist die Bestimmung der Phasengeschwindigkeit der Rayleighwellen (Fundamentalmode und höhere Moden) als Funktion der Frequenz. Aus der Phasengeschwindigkeit lassen sich Modelle für die S-Wellengeschwindigkeit der lokalen Struktur invertieren. Bei der Inversion werden sowohl geologische Informationen, als auch die gemessene Eigenfrequenz der Lockersedimente und die Eigenschaften der gemessenen H/V Kurve verwendet. Ergänzt wurden die Messungen des Schweizerischen Erdbebendienstes durch Messungen des Bureau de Recherche Geologique et Miniere (BRGM) und des Leibniz Instituts für Geowissenschaftliche Gemeinschaftsaufgaben, Hannover (GGA). Abbildung 1 zeigt die Standorte der durchgeführten Messungen im Untersuchungsgebiet. Die Charakterisierung der verschiedenen geologischen Strukturen ist die Grundlage für die Entwicklung von Modellen für die numerische Modellierung. [less ▲]

Supplied by the Ganga–Brahmaputra fluvial system, the Bengal Fan provides an integrated record of the Himalayan basin history through time. The active channel-levee system of the middle fan documents the last glacial/interglacial cycle. Organic geochemistry studies have shown that the organic matter contained in the Bengal Fan sediments is mainly of terrestrial origin. We analysed terrestrial n-alkanes (C27–C33) from Bengal Fan sediments and modern Ganga–Brahmaputra sediments. Comparison of compound specific hydrogen and carbon isotopic ratios in these samples allow us to follow the evolution of paleoenvironmental conditions since the Last Glacial Maximum. Carbon molecular isotopic data on the odd-HMW n-alkanes show a shift of 4&, corresponding to an evolution in the Himalayan system from a C4-dominated vegetation at LGM to a C3- dominated vegetation during the Holocene. It is now well known that C4 plants are more adapted than C3 plants to low atmospheric CO2 concentrations and to relatively hot and dry climate. In the same time, molecular D/H isotopic ratios measured on the same samples show an increase of the deuterium content of about 20& during the Holocene, which is consistent with lower temperature at the end of the LGM in the Himalaya. As low temperature should favored C3 plants, the predominance of a C4 vegetation have to be linked with dryer conditions at the end of the LGM. Afterwards, the increase of the C3/C4 ratio in the Himalayan system is related to a concomitant increase of humidity and pCO2 during the Holocene. [less ▲]

We study numerically and analytically the dynamics of passive energy transfer from a damped linear oscillator to an essentially nonlinear end attachment. This transfer is caused by either fundamental or subharmonic resonance capture, and in some cases is initiated by nonlinear beat phenomena. It is shown that, due to the essential nonlinearity, the end attachment is capable of passively absorbing broadband energy at both high and low frequencies, acting, in essence, as a passive broadband boundary controller. Complicated transitions in the damped dynamics can be interpreted based on the topological structure and bifurcations of the periodic solutions of the underlying undamped system. Moreover, complex resonance capture cascades are numerically encountered when we increase the number of degrees of freedom of the system. The ungrounded essentially nonlinear end attachment discussed in this work can find application in numerous practical settings, including vibration and shock isolation of structures, seismic isolation,. utter suppression, and packaging.

This paper deals with a new 3D finite element scheme for nondestructive eddy-current testing (ECT) problems. It concerns a perturbation technique applied to the magnetodynamic h- φ formulation. The unperturbed field (in the absence of the flaw) is computed conventionally in the complete domain. The source of the perturbation problem is determined by the projection of the unperturbed field in a relatively small region around the defect that depends on the work frequency. The discretisation of this reduced domain is adapted to the size of the defect and independent of the discretisation of the complete domain. The impedance change is computed by integrating only over the defect and a layer of elements in the reduced domain that touch its boundary. As test case, we consider the second eddy current benchmark problem proposed by the WFNDEC. It involves a pancake coil scanning the inner surface of a metal tube for the detection of flaws on the outer surface. [less ▲]
