The main objective of the present study was to determine the current concentrations of PCDDs, PCDFs and PCBs in dolphins from a region of high industrialization and urbanization in the Southern Hemisphere. Since most of these compounds biomagnify in food chains and changes in ratios of stable isotopes of nitrogen (15N/14N) have been used to elucidate trophic relationships 7, measurements of these isotopes have been carried out in marine tucuxi dolphins and their prey in Guanabara Bay. Stable isotopes were measured, firstly, to quantitatively assess the trophic level of the dolphin, and, secondly, to provide information for future human risk assessment investigations related to fish consumption [less ▲]

This research is part of an integrated paleoecological project which aims at coupling reconstructions of past vegetation and water-quality changes with climate variability. Crater-lakes from East Africa are favourable to the conservation of proxy indicators such as plant macrofossils used to reconstruct the lake ecosystem. The study of modern macrophytic communities in relationship with present environmental parameters was the first step of this research. Eventually, it will allow us to select species with high proxy-indicator value. Phytosociologic and environmental data were collected in 18 crater-lakes in South-western Uganda. In each relevé, species abundance and habitat conditions were described. Environmental parameters were used to develop a lake typology. A cluster analysis identified 6 aquatic and semi-aquatic communities and the indicator species were highlighted. The CA ordination emphasized the importance of geography, physico-chemistry and trophic level in the community structure. Temperature, pH, sediment type, depth and slope were the most correlated parameters to floristic variation in the CCA ordination. These preliminary results give some trends about the ecology of macrophytes communities. A complete dataset and the study of species ecological range will allow us to go further in the ecological significations of macrofossils. [less ▲]

Mais comment les concepteurs de Google font-ils pour classer les milliers de pages se rapportant à un mot-clé donné, de façon telle que les pages les plus représentatives occupent toujours les premières positions du classement ? Ce tour de force repose sur de véritables résultats mathématiques combinant théorie des graphes et algèbre linéaire. [less ▲]

The aim of this work is to improve our understanding of the atmospheric corrosion of bronzes. This work focuses on three axes: - The characterization of tin compounds expected in atmospheric corrosion. The Mössbauer spectroscopy which has been the main tool in our multianalytical approach, allows selective and quantitative analysis. The Mössbauer parameters and f-factors have been determined for many tin oxides, chlorides and sulfates. The f-factors are different from a compound to another and highly T-dependent which justify low temperature Mössbauer measurements. - The development of a low temperature CEMS detector to permit low temperature and non-destructive surface analysis. The detector operation has been optimized for various gases between 41 and 300 K. - The 2-years outdoor exposure in an urban site including CuSn9, CuSn3Zn9 bronzes, CuZn33 brass and pure metals. The corrosion and runoff rates have been investigated as well as the role of alloying elements in corrosion process. [less ▲]

The paper presents a comparative study of different elastoplastic large strain formulations used in research groups in Mendoza and Li`ege. The comparison is focused on a few academic standardized problems, in particular necking of a cylindrical bar in tension. Stress distribution at necking section, as well as load histories are analyzed for all three formulations. Two other test cases consider bending of the so-called ”Greco” beam and upsetting of a cylinder. Numerical results show that all approaches yield very similar results and thus are equally valid. Furthermore, quadratic 6-noded triangles provide a good alternative to bilinear quadrangles, even if sometimes they appear to be more sensitive to big distorsions. [less ▲]

In order to understand better the auto-ignition process in an HCCI engine, the influence of some important parameters on the auto-ignition is investigated. The inlet temperature, the equivalence ratio and the compression ratio were varied and their influence on the pressure, the heat release and the ignition delays were measured, The inlet temperature was changed from 25 to 70 degrees C and the equivalence ratio from 0.18 to 0.41, while the compression ratio varied from 6 to 13.5. The fuels that were investigated were PRF40 and n-heptane. These three parameters appeared to decrease the ignition delays, with the inlet temperature having the least influence and the compression ratio the most. A previously experimentally validated reduced surrogate mechanism, for mixtures of n-heptane, iso-octane and toluene, has been used to explain observations of the auto-ignition process. The same kinetic mechanism is used to better understand the underlying chemical and physical phenomena that make the influence of a certain parameter change according to the operating conditions. This can be useful for the control of the auto-ignition process in an HCCI engine. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
