This paper first investigates experimentally the performance of a prototype of oilfree open-drive scroll expander working with water and with HCFC-123. Using experimental data, two different simulation models of the expander are then proposed and validated. These models are finally used to analyze the measured performance with regard to the expander design characteristics. [less ▲]

In this book the information relevant to fire design of steel structures is presented in a systematic way in seven chapters. Each Chapter begins with an introduction of various concepts to be covered and follows with detailed explanation of the concepts. The calculation methods as relevant to code provisions (in Europe, North America or other continents) are discussed in detail. Worked examples relevant to calculation methodologies on simple structural elements are presented. For the case of complete structures guidance on how analysis can be carried out is presented. Chapter 1 of the book is devoted to providing relevant background information to codes and standards and principles of fire resistance design. The chapter discusses the fire safety design philosophies, prescriptive and performance-based design fire safety design issues. Chapter 2 deals with basis of design and mechanical loads. The load combinations to be considered for fire design of structures, as per European and North American codes and standards, are discussed. Chapter 3 discusses the detailed steps involved in establishing the fire scenarios for various cases. Both Eurocode and North American temperature-time relationships are discussed. Procedures in this section allow the designer to establish the time-temperature relationships or heat flux evolutions under a specified design fire. Chapter 4 deals with steps associated in establishing the temperature history in the steel structure, resulting from fire temperature. The various approaches for undertaking thermal analysis by simple calculation models are discussed. Chapter 5 presents the steps associated for establishing the mechanical response of a structure exposed to fire. The possibilities for analysis at different levels: member level, sub-structure level and global level are discussed. Full details related to simple calculation methods for undertaking strength analysis at member level are presented. Chapter 6 is devoted to fire resistance issues associated with design of joints. The steps associated with the fire resistance of a bolted or a welded joint through simplified and detailed procedure are discussed. Chapter 7 deals with thermal and mechanical analysis through advanced calculation models. The procedures involved in the sub-structure analysis or global structural analysis under fire exposure is fully discussed. Case studies are presented to illustrate the detailed fire resistance analysis of various structures. Chapter 8 presents four design examples showing how a complex structure can be designed using the concept of element or sub-structure analysis. The book concludes with two Annexes which present some of the design information related to material properties and temperature profiles. Annex 1 focuses on thermal properties of structural steel and commonly used insulation materials and resulting temperature profiles in steel. Annex 2 focuses on mechanical properties of structural steel. [less ▲]

The malqaf or windcatcher is Egyptian vernacular archetypal device that traps the wind into the building. For centuries, the malqaf has been used as a viable solution to ensure natural ventilation. However, for the last 50 years, Egyptian practice has failed in combining traditional architectural devices into new techniques that could lead to sustainable and energy aware buildings. In Egypt, more than half of the urban peak load of energy consumption in the mean time is used to satisfy air conditioning demands alone. Therefore, the objective of the research is to develop a viable passive alternative to active cooling by exploring the potentials and design parameters of windcatchers as solution for passive cooling and natural ventilation during the summer season for low-rise housing. Experimental wind tunnel and smoke visualisation testing were conducted to compare the air flow in a scale model room with and without windcatcher on top of the roof with different orientations. The final result shows that the performance of the windcatcher depends greatly on the position, orientation and size of the inlet and outlet opening in relation to the wall ratio. The study developed a comparative matrix for examined parameters to support architects with the basic principles for windcatchers design. [less ▲]

Ma thèse répondait à une nécessité : pourvoir les études moyennes iraniennes d’une analyse du système verbal, parfois déconcertant, du moyen-iranien occidental, en apportant le matériel nécessaire, en procurant un système de transcription pour les désinences et enfin en fournissant une réponse sur l’aspect diachronique des désinences. Ma thèse est divisée en quatre parties : 1. Une introduction, 2. Les désinences verbales : apparition et discussion philologique, 3. L’analyse des thèmes et des désinences et 4. Conclusions. Dans l’introduction (pp. 1-54), on expose la méthodologie, les problèmes d’écriture et les textes sélectionnés. Les deux parties centrales forment le cœur de l’ouvrage et sont divisées en trois sections : a) la collection et discussion philologique des attestations, divisées selon leur mode (indicatif, impératif, subjonctif et optatif) dans les différentes variantes du moyen-perse (pp. 55-177 : épigraphique, Psautier, manichéen et zoroastrien) et du parthe (pp. 178-241 : épigraphique et manichéen) ; b) un analyse des thèmes verbaux de ces langues (pp. 242-327 : avec 547 thèmes analysés à partir de leur étymologie) ; c) une analyse grammaticale et phonologique, suivie par une explication synchronique et diachronique des formes attestées (pp. 327-469). Finalement, on a fait une conclusion qui synthétise les recherches réalisées (pp. 470-482), un appendice sur les concordances des versions de l’inscription de Šābuhr (pp. 483-491), un index des formes nommées (pp. 483 521) et une bibliographie (pp. 522-534). Cette thèse aborde le problème de la carence d’uniformité dans les graphies des terminaisons verbales du moyen-iranien. Par exemple, la 1re pluriel indicatif a, au moins, trois variantes (<-wm>, <-ym>, <-m>). En outre, une même graphie peut être utilisée avec des fonctions syntaxiques différentes, par exemple <-yt> sert comme 3e singulier indicatif, 2e pluriel indicatif et impératif et, probablement, comme 2e pluriel optatif. J’expose la raison pour laquelle l’homographie de ces différentes terminaisons est due à la perte des syllabes finales depuis l’iranien ancien, de cette façon le moyen-iranien aurait confondu des terminaisons à l’origine distinctes (par exemple, 1re sg. *mi, 1re pl. *mahi > -m). On a analysé les différents témoignages afin de déterminer de manière exacte la catégorie grammaticale. Quant à l’explication historique, on a pris en compte les évolutions phonétiques régulières, avec une attention particulière au rôle de l’accent, mais aussi les nivellements analogiques et paradigmatiques. Du point de vue historique, quelques terminaisons ont <y>, ce qui avait été considéré comme le résultat de l’ancien suffixe causatif *-aya-, mais mon travail a montré que son origine doit être plus complexe. Contre l’acceptation de la généralisation des thèmes en * aya-, on a montré que les formes avec <y> peuvent avoir des origines variées et que son apparition peut être expliquée à travers différents processus syncrétiques depuis l’iranien ancien : syncrétisme des thèmes (athématiques / thématiques), de temps (présent / imparfait), de modes (indicatif, impératif / optatif) et de thèmes (en *-a- et en *-aya-). Une des conclusions très importantes est que l’extension des terminaisons en <y> s’est produite à partir des terminaisons en <y> de l’optatif (< *-ay-) utilisées comme impératif (notamment à la 2e pluriel). En outre, l’influence des thèmes en *-aya- a signifié l’usage de <yd> comme 3e sg. indicatif et son extension ultérieure. C’est pourquoi, la différence entre thèmes en *-a- et en *-aya- a disparu dans la conjugaison indicatif / impératif, ce qui a été favorisé par les résultats identiques aux modes optatif et subjonctif de thèmes en *-a- et en * aya- en moyen-iranien occidental.

Studies that focused on family issues have allowed a great understanding of the aspectsrelated to its subsystems, such as parenting desire and its expectations, couples’satisfaction and quality of child’s outcomes. All these aspects are greatly interconnectedand contribute to the creation of specific family dynamics, such as the quality offamily interactions. The present study focuses on intuitive co-parental behaviors andthe quality of couple relationship observed during the decision process (intention anddesire) to be (or become) parents. Our first goal was to explore these aspects ina cross-national sample made of Italian and Belgian heterosexual, lesbian and gaycouples. We then aimed to evaluate if the degree of internalized homophobia affectsco-parental alliance. The quality of couple relationship and co-parental behaviors havebeen evaluated through the recruitment of a group of 115 stable heterosexual, gay andlesbian couples (230 individuals, 20–50 years of age) without children, who wanted tobecome parents. We used the Prenatal Lausanne Trilogue Play to evaluate the Co-parental Alliance; the couple’s satisfaction was assessed with the Dyadic AdjustmentScale and the Internalized Homophobia with the MISS-LG. In line with the existentliterature, the analysis did not find any difference between lesbian, gay and heterosexualcouples in terms of co-parental alliance. High levels of couple adjustment lead to betterparental performances among both Italian and Belgian couples. The results suggestalso that sexual stigma differs from one country to another, and it has an impact on thecapability of managing co-parenting. Clinical implications should be verified in furtherlongitudinal studies in order to observe the impact on the inter-generational transmissionof psychopathology. [less ▲]
