The LARSP (Language Assessment, Remediation and Screening Procedure) (Crystal et al., 1976) is a linguistic profile commonly used by researchers and clinicians to carry out detailed analyses of the grammar and morphology of children’s spontaneous language samples. This paper discusses the methods used to adapt the profile from English to French using a large corpus of child language in order to accurately assign morphosyntactic structures to age-based stages.

Rapport de recherches final présentant les résultats du projet de recherches SAFE (2009-2012). Le projet de recherches SAFE portait sur l'évaluation énergétique des quartiers périurbains existants dans le but d'en améliorer l'efficience énergétique par le développement de nouveaux modes de conception et de planification des tissus périurbains. L'objectif concret de ce projet de recherche est d'offrir un outil informatique interactif, accessible sur le web (www.safe-energie.be), qui permette d'évaluer l'efficience énergétique des lotissements wallons existants et de comparer différentes stratégies de renouvellement périurbain. Cet outil est destiné à l'ensemble des acteurs du processus de conception, réalisation et rénovation du milieu urbain. L'outil informatique développé estl'aboutissement d'une recherche de pointe basée sur la modélisation énergétique de quartiers périurbains à l'aide de simulations du microclimat urbain (logiciel de CFD, etc), de simulations dynamiques des consommations énergétiques des bâtiments pendant leur utilisation et de simulations énergétiques des fragments urbains sur l'ensemble de leur cycle de vie (intégrant l'évaluation énergétique des bâtiments, du transport et des réseaux d'énergie).

Although Bharati Mukherjee is famous, or rather infamous, for her shameless embrace of America and its melting-pot ideology, in Desirable Daughters India, the homeland, is unexpectedly made to re-enter the stage of immigrant identity construction. In many respects it would seem that it has now become untenable to represent immigrant identity in terms of a one-directional movement from “India” to “America.” In Desirable Daughters the rise of India, the accelerated time/space compression of late capitalism, the post-90s paradigm shift in matters of transnational migration, the emphasis on return migrations and the emergence of a new global interaction indeed dramatically outflank Mukherjee’s previous narrative of American “exceptionalism” – which suddenly seems dated by comparison. By portraying the complex transnational network of connections operating between RIs (Resident Indians) and NRIs (Non Resident Indians), Mukherjee’s book gestures towards the “de-spatialization” of immigrant identity construction and its consequent “re-metaphorization” in terms of “time zones.” What is more, the increasingly compelling influence of contemporary India on the Indo-American diasporic subjectivity marks a “back to the future” return of the repressed which temporally repositions migrant identity between a ghostly time of repetition and a “hauntology” of new becomings. What Mukherjee suggests, I will contend, is that immigrant agency and self-fashioning cannot be associated anymore with the “pioneering spirit” of forward-looking characters that discard their “Indianness” upon (geographical) entry into the West. In my reading of Desirable Daughters the protagonist’s zigzagging path to self-transformation will be emphasized, so that it will become apparent that time has become the fourth space through which new spaces for diasporic identity can be renegotiated.

Carbon nanotube reinforced polymer foams filling a metallic honeycomb were processed and characterized for the production of hybrid materials with high electromagnetic absorption potential. Electromagnetic modeling and experimental characterization of the hybrids proved that the honeycomb, acting as a hexagonal waveguide, improves the absorption properties in the gigahertz range above the cutoff frequency. The electromagnetic absorption can be tuned by changing the hybrid material properties. The required levels of electrical conductivity are attained owing to the dispersion of low amounts (1–2 wt%) of carbon nanotubes inside the polymermatrix. The combination of the foam and honeycomb architecture contributes to decrease the real part of the relative effective permittivity Re{εr,eff }. Varying the cell shape of the honeycomb changes the frequency range for high absorption. An analytical model for the absorption has been developed, showing good agreement with the experimental results. [less ▲]

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.

Within the framework of policies to promote the diversity, the use of quota is more and more discussed, what besides brings to the foreground tensions about this issue. There is no uniform model about that in the European countries. This article realizes an inventory of fixtures, in Belgium and in France, on the laws concerning the usage of the quota and the arguments (positive and negatives) in this issue. This research participates to show that the development of the quote in Europe joins in the passage of a regulation " soft law " towards one " hard law ". [less ▲]

The authors consider a power system composed of several non-synchronous AC areas connected by a multiterminal high-voltage direct current (HVDC) grid. In this context, the authors propose a distributed control scheme that modifies the power injections from the different AC areas into the DC grid so as to make the system collectively react to load imbalances. This collective reaction allows each individual AC area to downscale its primary reserves. The scheme is inspired by algorithms for the consensus problem extensively studied by the control theory community. It modifies the power injections based on frequency deviations of the AC areas so as to make them stay close to each other. A stability analysis of the closed-loop system is reported as well as simulation results on a benchmark power system with five AC areas. These results show that with proper tuning, the control scheme makes the frequency deviations converge rapidly to a common value following a load imbalance in an area. [less ▲]
