Les débats médiatiques sur la mondialisation s’articulent autour de deux thèses apparemment antagonistes. Pour les partisans du libéralisme économique et les représentants des milieux d’affaires, il s’agit de condamner l’interventionnisme et le dirigisme politique dans le libre-jeu de l’économie de marché. Les chefs de file syndicaux et dirigeants réformistes de l’« altermondialisme », entendent, quant à eux, défendre, bec et ongles, l’idée d’un personnel politique victime de la bourse et des pressions de divers lobbies industriels et financiers. Dans les deux cas pourtant, on procède à une dissociation artificielle et trompeuse de l’économique et du politique. Cette représentation dominante de la mondialisation est à l’origine d’une censure, celle qui, derrière le paravent de l’Etat « victime » ou « bourreau » des marchés, refuse la parole aux critiques dénonçant les liens organiques entre pouvoirs économique, politique et médiatique.

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 ▲]

We present our recent results on using previously introduced framework for multi-area security assessment in large interconnections. The basic idea of the framework is exchanging just enough information so that each operator can evaluate the impact in his control area of contingencies both internal and external to his area. We provide illustrations based on a localization concept known as efficient bounding method and recently introduced approximate DC model of the European interconnected system. In this paper we focus on four transmission system operators (within the approximate DC model): Belgium, France, Germany, and Netherlands (for both Summer and Winter-peak load conditions). [less ▲]

The Hilbert transform is one of the most successful approaches to tracking the varying nature of vibration of a large class of nonlinear systems thanks to the extraction of backbone curves from experimental data. Because signals with multiple frequency components do not admit a well-behaved Hilbert transform, it is inherently limited to the analysis of single-degree-of-freedom systems. In this study, the joint application of the complexification-averaging method and the empirical mode decomposition enables us to develop a new technique, the slow-flow model identification method. Through numerical and experimental applications, we demonstrate that the proposed method is adequate for characterizing and identifying multi-degree-offreedom nonlinear systems. [less ▲]

Three groups of five pigs were inoculated intratracheally with Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharides, and 24 hours later with 10 x 10(9) colony-forming units of a non-toxigenic strain of Pasteurella multocida type A; a fourth group was left uninoculated as controls. The three inoculated groups received either no treatment (positive controls), or were treated with 3 mg/kg ceftiofur intramuscularly once a day for five consecutive days, either alone or combined with 2 mg/kg flunixin intramuscularly once a day for three consecutive days. The sustained coughing and hyperthermia recorded in the positive controls disappeared after two days and three days of treatments, respectively, in the treated animals, and the reductions in daily weight gain and changes in breathing pattern observed in the controls were not observed in the treated animals. There were no significant differences between the pigs treated with ceftiofur alone or ceftiofur combined with flunixin. In the positive controls, the number of inflammatory cells in samples of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid continued to increase up to 15 days after inoculation, whereas in the treated animals there were similar increases at six days but the numbers had decreased to baseline levels after 15 days. Similarly, in the treated animals the volume of the lung lesions was significantly less than in the control animals, but the inclusion of flunixin in the treatment regimen had no significant additional effect [less ▲]

Le béton est réputé durable. L’expérience de cette durabilité est toutefois fort limitée en termes d’échelle temporelle : nombreux sont les facteurs – internes et externes - qui peuvent amener une dégradation parfois très rapide du matériau. Fort heureusement, ces dégradations n’ont que très peu souvent d’effet irrémédiable sur le comportement structurel de l’ouvrage en béton. Les réparations permettent en général de prolonger la durée de vie des structures, en réhabilitant le comportement du matériau : l’adhérence du système de protection ou de réparation constitue dans ce cas une condition nécessaire mais pas toujours suffisante. Définir les conditions d’ « appétence » est la première étape du processus : quelles sont les conditions minimales à rencontrer pour que les matériaux « adhèrent », dans un environnement donné ? Ces conditions sont-elles suffisantes pour garantir la durabilité des réparations ? De plus, l’évaluation de l’adhérence pose problème en soi : traction, cisaillement, torsion sont autant de sollicitations censées représenter le comportement réel d’une interface : quel type d’essai employer ? Comment allier facilité et efficacité ? Laboratoire et chantier ? [less ▲]

Groundwater chemistry in groundwater-fed wetlands often is the result of mixing of discharging groundwater and rainfall in combination with chemical reactions altering the chemical composition, mostly due to changes in redox conditions. In this study, a Self-Organizing Map is used to classify chemical groundwater samples of three groundwaterfed wetlands in Belgium in order to identify the origin of groundwater and to deduce redox conditions in the wetlands. The Self-Organizing Map (SOM) algorithm is an unsupervised neural network technique to represent a multidimensional dataset on a two-dimensional grid in a topology-preserving way, allowing investigation of non-linear, complex relationships between variables and grouping of the data (Kohonen, 1995). The SOM is trained with data from a regional groundwater monitoring network and rainfall data. The resulting SOM is able to distinguish between samples of different origin or redox conditions within the regional aquifers. Subsequently, samples of the three wetlands are shown to the SOM and each sample is classified as having a chemical composition comparable to rainfall or to one of the regional aquifers. [less ▲]
