Six types of fats (oils, shortenings and margarines) from different vegetable (hydrogenated or not) or animal origins have been studied in a cake model. Cakes have been characterized through Texture Profile Analysis and sensory evaluation. Texture analysis shows that studied fats can be classified in two main categories, giving different texture characteristics: liquid oils on one hand and fats containing a solid fraction on the other. Descriptive sensory evaluation leads to the same conclusions. On the contrary, hedonic sensory evaluation shows no difference between the different fats. The results in this paper indicate also that shortenings classical solid fat content can be reduced, without impact on the final product characteristics. This paper shows thus that the nutritional profile of bakery products can be improved, without sacrificing the sensory quality. Notably, the palm oil content (and thus the saturated fatty acids content) reduction of today shortenings could be an answer to nutritional and environmental concerns. [less ▲]

Today, state-of-the-art simulation packages in flexible multibody dynamics allow the high-fidelity analysis of industrial mechanisms and machines in many application fields including robotics, automotive systems, aeronautics, deployable structures or wind turbines. The dynamic response of a given system can thus be evaluated in the time-domain for given load cases and given initial values. However, in many practical cases, the engineer does not have a precise knowledge of the mechanical design, the loading conditions and the initial state. This situation occurs for example in structural optimization, optimal control, experimental identification and health monitoring problems. The complexity of simulation codes and the computational cost of high-fidelity models are still important obstacles for the development of efficient resolution methods for these inverse problems. A current challenge is thus to elaborate simplified and more efficient modelling strategies in flexible multibody dynamics in order to enable the development of inverse analysis methods. The talk is divided into three parts. The first part provides an overview of available simulation techniques for flexible mechanisms with a particular emphasis on finite element-based approaches and time integration methods. Some illustrations are presented in the fields of deployable structures, vehicle dynamics and wind turbines. In the second part, optimization problems in flexible multibody dynamics are addressed and solved using gradient-based methods. Efficient methods for sensitivity analysis are discussed and special problems are treated such as the structural optimization of mechanical components or the numerical solution of inverse dynamics problems. The third part discusses a recently-developed Lie group approach which allows the formulation of the equations of motion of a multibody system in a parameterization-free setting. Based on this general formalism, which is characterized by an increased modularity and a reduced complexity, a large variety of Lie group solvers are foreseen not only for time integration but also for model reduction, sensitivity analysis and optimization.

Suite à un appel d’offre lancé par le contrat de rivière « Haute-Sûre », dans le cadre de l’initiative communautaire INTERREG IV Grande Région et du projet « PACTE Haute-Sûre », le CEBEDEAU a réalisé en collaboration avec l'Aquapôle la mise en œuvre et le suivi d’un réseau de mesure transfrontalier de la qualité physico-chimique des cours d’eau du bassin de la Haute-Sûre belgo luxembourgeoise. Pour ce faire, la mission a été découpée en 3 grandes phases : 1) choix des points de mesure devant faire partie du réseau, des éléments à analyser ; 2) collecte et analyses des échantillons ; 3) traitement des données : inclusion dans une base de données, évaluation de la qualité des eaux, interprétation des résultats et fourniture d’éléments permettant l’évaluation du risque de non atteinte du bon état [less ▲]

For several decades, Fair Trade Social Enterprises (FTSEs) have set up partnerships with producer groups in the South and distributed the latter’s products through different types of channels in the North. However, while pioneers in the early years were relatively homogeneous (nonprofit organizations relying on voluntary work and selling through “worldshops”), organizational diversity has tremendously increased in recent times, including other types of legal forms, architectures, and governance models (volunteer-based, manager-based, multi-stakeholder, etc.). As a result, different categories of FTSEs now coexist in the sector with diverse missions and strategies. Since Fair Trade (FT) is a hybrid concept, entailing economic, social and political dimensions, the diversity of organizational models might reflect or enable different ways of articulating these dimensions. In other words, different organizational models might be suited for different ways of conceiving and practicing FT. Such an articulation through specific forms has been suggested by previous concepts that can be related to FT, such as cooperatives, the social economy, the solidarity economy, and, more recently, social enterprise. The latter is particularly useful as an umbrella concept that embraces the diverse types of FTSEs and accounts for their use of market mechanisms to pursue social innovation. This research first aims to explore and to structure FTSEs’ organizational diversity. For that purpose, the managers of 57 FTSEs were interviewed in four European regions: Belgium, France (Rhône-Alpes), the United Kingdom (England) and Italy (Rome). Based on the combinations of different elements of the organizational form, five categories emerge: individual FTSEs; entrepreneurial, business-form FTSEs; volunteer-based FTSEs; multi-stakeholder cooperative FTSEs; and group structures. Although certain FTSEs share features corresponding to several models, these categories seem adequate in the sense are relatively homogeneous and distinct from each other. The second question examines the factors or forces that lead FTSEs to adopt particular and diverse organizational forms. Using sociological and economic “new institutional” approaches, this book explores the influence of a number of factors on the organizational form: age, size, region, goals, activities, resources, and leaders’ profiles. From an economic standpoint, organizational diversity may be explained by the fact that FTSEs do not all produce the same types of goods when practicing FT. Thus, FTSEs will adopt the organizational form that minimizes their transaction costs in the production of particular goods. From a sociological standpoint, the analysis suggests that weak and sometimes conflicting institutional pressures explain organizational diversity. Indeed, uniformity is limited (within certain generations of FTSEs or in particular regions), although there is a dominant trend toward a stronger business orientation in the models. The third question examines how organizational actors within FTSEs experience and foster hybridity at the field level, thereby contributing to organizational diversification. Looking at six cases of FTSEs covering the different types of models, the strategic role of FTSEs is examined, as “institutional entrepreneurs” capable of influencing the environment in a way that legitimizes their own organizational model and secures their access to crucial resources. This strategic analysis allows for a more dynamic view of organizational models as “institutional bricolage”. Finally, the book ends with a number of recommendations for FT entrepreneurs on the strengths and the weaknesses of each organizational model. [less ▲]
