[more ▼]One of the biggest upcoming challenges concerning both environmental and energy systems engineering is the control and limitation of greenhouse gas emissions due to human activity. Fossil fuels-fired power plants are in this context one of the main contributors due to the large amounts of CO2 emitted. Different technologies have been developed for capturing CO2 from such power plants. This work focuses on post-combustion CO2 capture by reactive absorption into amine solvents like monoethanolamine (MEA). The main drawback of this technology is actually the high energy requirement of the process, especially for solvent regeneration. It is then highly interesting to model the capture process so that optimal operating conditions could be approached by simulation thus reducing the number of expensive experimental tests. Thanks to the simulation, it has been possible to identify the most influent process variables and to optimize their value. It was also possible to study the impact of process modifications on the global capture efficiency. The improvements studied allowed for a reduction by up to 14% of the process exergy consumption. Another major drawback of the post-combustion CO2 capture is solvent degradation, which can be due to thermal as well as oxidative mechanisms. Degradation affects the CO2 capture process since it may cause corrosion, foaming and fouling, possibly inducing a decrease of the solvent efficiency and high additional operating costs due to solvent replacement. In order to study degradation of conventional amine solvents as well as degradation of novel solvents, a degradation test rig has been built at the University of Liège in collaboration with the company Laborelec, member of the GDF SUEZ group. First results show that degradation obtained on this lab installation can be compared to degradation results observed on CO2 capture pilot installation. The final objective of this thesis is to make a link between degradation and simulation. Experimental data obtained on the degradation test rig will be implemented into the existing simulation model so that optimal operating conditions considering both process energy efficiency and solvent degradation can be determined.

[more ▼]Aims: The X-ray emission of massive stars has been studied when these objects are in their main-sequence phase, as well as in their Wolf-Rayet phase. However, the X-ray properties of the transitional Luminous Blue Variable (LBV) phase remain unknown. Methods: Using a dedicated but limited XMM survey as well as archival XMM and Chandra observations, we performed the first X-ray survey of LBVs: about half of the known LBVs or candidate LBVs are studied. Results: Apart from the well known X-ray sources eta Car and Cyg OB2 #12, four additional LBVs are detected in this survey, though some doubt remains on the association with the X-ray source for two of these. For the other LBVs, upper limits on the flux were derived, down to $\log[L_{\rm X}/L_{\rm BOL}]-9.4$ for PCyg. This variety in the strength of the X-ray emission is discussed, with particular emphasis on the potential influence of binarity.

Toute l’écriture de celui qui a dit « la poésie sera consolatrice, ou rien » est une lutte contre les limites ou les illusions de la pensée et de la parole, une tentative de dépasser l’impuissance de la poésie à conserver trace de l’émerveillement de l’homme devant la nature. Réel et langage, désir et nihilisme sont les pôles d’une œuvre capitale.

[more ▼]Ce papier a pour objectif de réaliser une revue de littérature qui doit permettre de construire une recherche empirique visant à apporter une vision comparative des carrières des hommes et des femmes cadres en regard de trois groupes d’âge : les moins de 35 ans, les [35-50] ans et les plus de 50 ans. Nous considérons les deux sexes étant donné que les trajectoires professionnelles sont influencées par le sexe de la personne ainsi que par les stéréotypes et les rôles qui y sont directement associés (genre). Les générations, quant à elles, nous permettront de tenir compte de l’évolution des facteurs de contexte que sont notamment ces rôles attribués au masculin et au féminin à travers les époques. En effet, les constructions sociales liées au sexe des individus sont susceptibles de changer d’une génération à l’autre et donc d’agir distinctement sur les intentions de carrière. Le fait d’introduire la dimension générationnelle, en plus de celle du genre, est l’occasion d’aborder le concept d’intersectionnalité qui consiste en un croisement des groupes cibles propres à la gestion de la diversité. A l’issue de cet aperçu théorique faisant état de la littérature existante relative à cette thématique des carrières des individus occupant un poste à responsabilités, nous pourrons mettre en évidence différentes questions de recherche qu’il nous faudra, dans un second temps, confronter à la réalité du terrain.

[more ▼]Urban sprawl is a major issue for sustainable development. It represents a significant contribution to energy consumption of a territory especially due to transportation requirements. However, transport energy consumption is rarely taken into account when the sustainability of suburban structures is studied. In this context, the paper presents a method to estimate transport energy consumption in residential suburban areas. The study aimed, on this basis, at highlighting the most efficient strategies needed to promote awareness and to give practical hints on how to reduce transport energy consumption linked to urban sprawl in existing and future suburban neighborhoods. The method uses data collected by using empirical surveys and GIS. An application of this method is presented concerning the comparison of four suburban districts located in Belgium to demonstrate the advantages of the approach. The influence of several parameters, such as distance to work places and services, use of public transport and performance of the vehicles, are then discussed to allow a range of different development situations to be explored. The results of the case studies highlight that travelled distances, and thus a good mix between activities at the living area scale, are of primordial importance for the energy performance, whereas means of transport used is only of little impact. Improving the performance of the vehicles and favoring home-work give also significant energy savings. The method can be used when planning new areas or retrofitting existing ones, as well as promoting more sustainable life styles regarding transport habits.

[more ▼]Physical modeling and numerical modeling are two efficient analysis approaches in hydraulic engineering. The interactive application of both methods is obviously the more effective response to most flow problems analyses. This paper presents the results of a successful application of such a composite numerical – physical study carried out by the Research Group Hydraulics in Environmental and Civil Engineering (former HACH) of the University of Liège on behalf of Coyne et Bellier (Tractebel Engineering). It concerned, at the stage of detailed draft, the hydraulic study of the Taoussa Project on the Niger River in Mali. The studies, performed in less than 6 months, focused on the flow characteristics at the scale of the reservoir and the river, using the numerical approach, as well as on hydrodynamic details in the spillway using a large scale factor physical model with boundary conditions defined on the basis of numerical modeling.

[more ▼]Hedge funds display a strong non-linear payoff structure because of the use of highly dynamic trading strategies. This article examines the relevance of using higherorder comoment equity risk premiums implied in the United States and the emerging markets for capturing these return non-linearities. We provide evidence that the higherorder comoment equity risk premiums help in explaining the returns of the different hedge fund strategies from the Hedge Fund Research classification. We perform a dynamic analysis where moment risk exposures are examined separately in up and down markets. We show that hedge fund styles tend to vary their exposures to moment risks according to the market regimes.
