The cost of manufacturing textile-reinforced composite aerostructures using Resin Infusion under Flexible Tooling (RIFT) can be reduced by computational modelling. This paper outlines the current progress and contributions made towards this goal. A continuum-based material model was incorporated into a finite element package to simulate the draping of a dry carbon fibre fabric. It accurately tracks the changes in the warp and weft fibre orientations and has been experimentally validated. Material characterisation was performed to determine the tensile and shear properties of a plain weave fabric reinforcement material. In support of bias extension shear testing, an accessible Digital Image Correlation (DIC) approach was developed for accurate optical strain measurement. A relationship between permeability and shear angle was also experimentally determined using a novel permeability measurement technique. Future work is planned to combine all these aspects in an infusion model and demonstrate the complete process model. [less ▲]

Experience in transboundary river basins emphasizes the need for more cooperative transnational water management. In this respect, the Interreg IVB project AMICE aims at developing a shared adaptation strategy of the basin of the river Meuse to the hydrological impacts of climate change. The basin covers parts of France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. The project combines scientific research with innovative natural and structural water retention measures, as well as enhanced transnational crisis management. In this framework, common climate and hydrological scenarios were derived for the time horizons 2021-2050 and 2071-2100. A “coordinated” procedure was set up to conduct the first hydraulic modelling of the entire river Meuse, from its spring to its mouth. For the considered climate scenarios, the increases in future flood levels were found about twice higher in the central part of the Meuse basin compared to the upper and lower parts. This distinctive spatial pattern results from the morphology of the valley. The characteristics of the hydraulic models used for this “coordinated” analysis differed significantly from one region to the other (e.g., 1D vs. 2D, steady vs. unsteady). Therefore, a more refined analysis was undertaken on a 100 km long stretch of the Meuse, crossing the border between Belgium and the Netherlands, using very similar (“harmonized”) models for the whole computation (2D unsteady models). As a result, the influence of using different interconnected models could be appreciated. The results of hydraulic modelling were used to conduct damage assessment based on a common methodology throughout the Meuse basin and combined with landuse change scenarios in the floodplains (change in vulnerability of the floodplains). In turn, several adaptation measures were tested, including upstream water retention, dredging as well as upgrade of flood defences and mobile weirs. Hydrological and hydraulic modelling was also performed for a sub-basin of the river Meuse, partly controlled by two large reservoirs. A detailed model of the operation rules of these reservoirs was implemented. This enabled to investigate the impact of the considered climate change scenarios on the performance of these multi-purpose reservoirs as well as to investigate possible enhancements in the operation rules, which may serve as adaptation measures to compensate for the detrimental effects of climate change.

Regarding renewable energy and environment- friendly issues, wind energy nowadays has become the fastest-growing energy source in the world, and thus attracts a lot of research interest in the wind turbine generation system. A doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) is used for variable speed operation in a wind turbine system to extract more power. Following a systematic approach, this paper investigates on the modelling and simulation of wind turbine generating systems using the flexible multibody simulation software SAMCEF/MECANO [1]. The objective of this work is to analyze the control-generator-structure interactions in a wind turbine system. Firstly, an extension of the finite element method is integrated into the flexible multibody dynamics solver, and thus extends the solver to represent mechatronic systems in a strongly-coupled way. Secondly, DFIG and the control systems are modularly modeled for the wind turbine package. Control of DFIG for grid synchronization and power optimization are elaborated in detail, and the methods are validated through a 2MW DFIG wind turbine prototype model. At the end, a systematic system model of wind turbine structure connected with the DFIG generating system is presented, which provides the dynamic analysis for the whole system in an overall range.

This paper proposes to rely on power indices to measure the amount of control held by individual shareholders in corporate networks. The value of the indices is determined by a complex voting game viewed as the composition of interlocked weighted majority games; the compound game reflects the structure of shareholdings. The paper describes an integrated algorithmic approach which allows to deal efficiently with the complexity of computing power indices in shareholding networks, irrespective of their size or structure. In particular, the approach explicitly accounts for the presence of float and of cyclic shareholding relationships. It has been successfully applied to the analysis of real-world financial networks.

Taguchi introduced a new philosophy in quality control that accounts for the economic loss associated to process variation measured by deviations from the target value of a product quality characteristic. The Taguchi loss function has been considered in the design of control charts only for the computation of costs associated with nonconformities. This paper considers sample statistics based on the Taguchi loss function as a means to implement Shewhart control charts monitoring both the deviation from the target and dispersion of normally distributed quality characteristics. The aim of this proposed control chart is to perform on-line quality control of a process by monitoring its quality loss cost performance over time. To compute the quality loss performance, we consider a nominal-the-best quality characteristic. The statistical performance of the proposed control charts has been evaluated and compared with that of widely used control charts. Implementing target costing philosophy by means of one of the proposed charts is also discussed. An example illustrates the Taguchi control chart in a practical implementation. [less ▲]

A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs (ADAMTS) constitute a family of endopeptidases related to matrix metalloproteinases. These proteinases have been largely implicated in tissue remodeling associated with pathological processes. Among them, ADAMTS12 was identified as an asthma-associated gene in a human genome screening program. However, its functional implication in asthma is not yet documented. The present study aims at investigating potential ADAMTS-12 functions in experimental models of allergic airways disease. Two different in vivo protocols of allergen-induced airways disease were applied to the recently generated Adamts12-deficient mice and corresponding wild-type mice. In this study, we provide evidence for a protective effect of ADAMTS-12 against bronchial inflammation and hyperresponsiveness. In the absence of Adamts12, challenge with different allergens (OVA and house dust mite) led to exacerbated eosinophilic inflammation in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and in lung tissue, along with airway dysfunction assessed by increased airway responsiveness following methacholine exposure. Furthermore, mast cell counts and ST2 receptor and IL-33 levels were higher in the lungs of allergen-challenged Adamts12-deficient mice. The present study provides, to our knowledge, the first experimental evidence for a contribution of ADAMTS-12 as a key mediator in airways disease, interfering with immunological processes leading to inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness.
