This study consists in identifying and testing potential inorganic substitutes to carbon based materials commonly used as adsorbents for the removal of organic pollutants such as dioxins and furans released from Municipal Solid Waste Incinerators (MSWI). Although carbon materials enable to reach the current regulation in terms of dioxins and furans emissions, they exhibit a potential auto ignition risk when present in hot flue gases. Here, the adsorption potential of carbon based products is compared to the one of some inorganic materials. Chlorobenzene was chosen as a reference molecule to compare the removal performance of the different adsorbents. This comparison was based on the determination of the adsorption energies derived from temperature programmed desorption (TPD) experiments. In the first part of this study, five inorganic materials were selected according to their chlorobenzene adsorption performance compared to those of carbon based products currently used to remove micropollutants from MSWI flue gases. In the second part of the study, the influence of the inlet concentration of adsorbate on the adsorption potential of sorbents is investigated. Actually, the organic compound concentration was decreased in order to be closer to those met in MSWI. Furthermore, the adsorption experiments were performed with other adsorbates whose molecular mass or chlorine content are higher. Thanks to these adsorption results a new organic free formulation has been proposed for the removal of micropollutants. Tests carried out on an industrial scale, demonstrated that this product enables to reach the current norm concerning dioxins and furans emissions. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The aim of this work was to determine the ability to produce thin metallic foils by self-induced ion plating. Foils of pure copper and pure zinc with a thickness of 35 μm have been successfully produced and their characteristics have been compared to foils obtained by conventional techniques (i. e. electroplating and rolling). Results show the following: (i) more or less compact microstructures can be obtained by self-induced ion plating depending on gas pressure and substrate temperature; (ii) microstructures obtained by self-induced ion plating are quite different from those obtained by electroplating and rolling; (iii) Young’s modulus depends on foils roughness; (iv) hardness depends on grain size by exhibiting a Hall-Petch behavior in the case of copper foils and an “inverse” Hall-Petch behavior in the case of zinc foils.

Ce 1er juillet 2013, après six années de négociations avec l’Union européenne (UE) et de réformes laborieuses, la Croatie deviendra le 28ème État membre à part entière de la famille européenne. Après la Slovénie, membre depuis 2004, il s’agit du deuxième pays sortant de la dissolution violente de l’ex-Yougoslavie à rejoindre l’UE. Contrairement à son voisin slovène où les hostilités n’ont duré que quelques jours, la Croatie a connu plusieurs années de guerre et de destruction. Raison pour laquelle elle a été confrontée à une longue période de transition. Depuis son indépendance en 1991, tous les gouvernements croates ont engagé, un processus de consolidation de leur État. Ensuite ils ont consacré leur force à l’adhésion de leur pays à l’Organisation du traité de l’Atlantique Nord (OTAN), concrétisée en 2009, enfin ils ont travaillé à leur entrée dans l’UE. Mais quel intérêt l’Union a-t-elle à voir ces pays la rejoindre ? [less ▲]

PURPOSE: To prospectively compare computed tomographic (CT) quantification of pulmonary emphysema in elastase-treated rats with morphometry and to evaluate the information yielded by CT quantification and pulmonary function tests. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was approved by the local committee on care and use of animals in research. Thirty-six animals were used. Emphysema was produced by means of one or two tracheal injections of 300 IU of elastase, 8 weeks apart, in seven and 12 rats, respectively. As a control group, 10 rats received an injection of normal saline. The dynamic resistance, dynamic compliance, and static compliance were measured. CT was performed with 1-mm section thickness and 3-mm intervals. Relative areas of lung with attenuation coefficients lower than nine chosen thresholds (from -900 to -980 HU) and eight percentiles (from 1st to 18th percentiles) of the distribution of attenuation coefficients were compared with measurements of alveoli size--that is, mean interwall distance (MIWD) and mean perimeter per field (MP). Correlations between data obtained with thresholds and percentiles and MIWD and MP were investigated by means of Spearman coefficients (r(s)). Values of pulmonary function tests, most appropriate relative area threshold, and percentile were investigated by means of stepwise multiple regressions. RESULTS: For thresholds, relative surface area with attenuation coefficients less than -940 HU (RA(940)) showed the strongest correlations with findings at microscopy (r(s) = 0.676, P < .001 for MIWD; r(s) = -0.720, P < .001 for MP). For percentiles, the 3rd percentile showed the strongest correlations (r(s) = -0.647, P < .001 for MIWD; r(s) = 0.701, P < .001 for MP). Dynamic compliance and RA(940) or 3rd percentile were complementary for predicting microscopic measurements. CONCLUSION: In rats, RA(940) and the 3rd percentile reflect the extent of elastase-induced pulmonary emphysema and are complementary to dynamic compliance to predict microscopic extent. [less ▲]

We study the transport properties of a Bose-Einstein condensate formed by an ultracold gas of bosonic atoms that is coupled from a magnetic trap into a one-dimensional waveguide. Our theoretical approach to tackling this problem is based on the truncated Wigner method for which we assume the system to consist of two semi-infinite noninteracting leads and a finite interacting scattering region with two constrictions modeling an atomic quantum dot. The transmission is computed in the steady-state regime and we find a good agreement between truncated Wigner and matrix-product state calculations. We also identify clear signatures of inelastic resonant scattering by analyzing the distribution of energy in the transmitted atomic-matter wave beam. [less ▲]

One current challenge related to computational fracture mechanics is the modeling of ductile fracture and in particular the damage to crack transition. On the one hand, continuum damage models, especially in their non-local formulation which avoids the loss of solution uniqueness, can capture the material degradation process up to the localization of the damage, but are unable to represent a discontinuity in the structure. On the other hand cohesive zone methods can represent the process zone at the crack tip governing the crack propagation, but cannot account for the diffuse material damaging process. In this paper we propose to combine, in a small deformations setting, a non-local elastic damage model with a cohesive zone model. This combination is formulated within a discontinuous Galerkin nite element discretization. Indeed this DG weak formulation can easily be developed in a non-local implicit form and naturally embeds interface elements that can be used to integrate the traction separation law of the cohesive zone model. The method remains thus consistent and computationally e cient as compared to other cohesive element approaches. The effects of the damage to crack transition and of the mesh discretization are respectively studied on the compact tension specimen and on the double-notched specimen, demonstrating the efficiency and accuracy of the method.

The elastance of the midthoracic portion of the oesophagus was measured in 14 healthy Dutch Friesians. These were divided into three groups with mean ages of six, 126 and 1636 days, respectively. Mean elastance was 0.17, 0.10 and 0.06 kPa ml-1, respectively. The calculated percentage of error, in relating the endoesophageal pressure with that in the thorax, was found to be smaller than 1 per cent for each animal. [less ▲]
