This powerpoint presentation was used as teaching material in a seminar given as part of the course “Ingénierie des matériaux métalliques” at Université de Liège. It outlines important current issues in the developments of additive technologies for the processing of metallic materials by discussing two case studies from researches carried out by the Metallic Materials Science Unit (ULg). In particular, two different metallic alloys, i.e. stainless steel 316L and Ti-6Al-4V, have been processed by laser beam melting under similar conditions, and their microstructures and mechanical behaviours have been compared in details. Under the investigated conditions, Ti-6Al-4V exhibits a more complex behaviour than stainless steel 316L with respect to the occurrence of microstructural and mechanical anisotropy. Moreover, Ti-6Al-4V appears more sensitive to the build-up of internal stresses when compared with stainless steel 316L, whereas stainless steel 316L appears more prone to the formation of “lack of melting” defects. This correlates nicely with the difference in thermal conductivity between the two materials. Thermal conductivity was also shown to increase strongly with increasing temperature. [less ▲]

The Great Nebula in Carina provides an exceptional view into the violent massive star formation and feedback that typifies giant H II regions and starburst galaxies. We have mapped the Carina star-forming complex in X-rays, using archival Chandra data and a mosaic of 20 new 60 ks pointings using the Chandra X-ray Observatory's Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer, as a testbed for understanding recent and ongoing star formation and to probe Carina's regions of bright diffuse X-ray emission. This study has yielded a catalog of properties of >14,000 X-ray point sources; >9800 of them have multiwavelength counterparts. Using Chandra's unsurpassed X-ray spatial resolution, we have separated these point sources from the extensive, spatially-complex diffuse emission that pervades the region; X-ray properties of this diffuse emission suggest that it traces feedback from Carina's massive stars. In this introductory paper, we motivate the survey design, describe the Chandra observations, and present some simple results, providing a foundation for the 15 papers that follow in this special issue and that present detailed catalogs, methods, and science results.

This short communication deals with the introduction of the concept of anticipator, which is one who anticipates, in the framework of computing anticipatory systems. The definition of anticipation deals with the concept of program. Indeed, the word program, comes from “pro-gram” meaning "to write before" by anticipation, and means a plan for the programming of a mechanism, or a sequence of coded instructions that can be inserted into a mechanism, or a sequence of coded instructions, as genes or behavioural responses, that is part of an organism. Any natural or artificial programs are thus related to anticipatory rewriting systems, as shown in this paper. All the cells in the body, and the neurons in the brain, are programmed by the anticipatory genetic code, DNA, in a low-level language with four signs. The programs in computers are also computing anticipatory systems. It will be shown, at one hand, that the genetic code DNA is a natural anticipator. As demonstrated by Nobel laureate McClintock [8], genomes are programmed. The fundamental program deals with the DNA genetic code. The properties of the DNA consist in self-replication and self-modification. The self-replicating process leads to reproduction of the species, while the self-modifying process leads to new species or evolution and adaptation in existing ones. The genetic code DNA keeps its instructions in memory in the DNA coding molecule. The genetic code DNA is a rewriting system, from DNA coding to DNA template molecule. The DNA template molecule is a rewriting system to the Messenger RNA molecule. The information is not destroyed during the execution of the rewriting program. On the other hand, it will be demonstrated that Turing machine is an artificial anticipator. The Turing machine is a rewriting system. The head reads and writes, modifying the content of the tape. The information is destroyed during the execution of the program. This is an irreversible process. The input data are lost. [less ▲]

The aim of the presentation is to give a "friendly" introduction to the PFEM (Particle-Finite Elements Method), a quite recent and powerful numerical method, designed to handle very non-linear problems, involving large displacements and deformations, in a Lagrangian framework. In some cases, as for example in dynamic fluid-structure interaction problems, the Eulerian approach can become very cumbersome, due to the intimate Lagrangian nature of the phenomenon; on the other hand, it is well-known that classical Lagrangian numerical approaches can suffer from mesh distortion problems: the PFEM is one of the methods which try to avoid this kind of issues, still working in a pure Lagrangian framework. During the presentation, some of the key features of the method will be pointed out, also underlining its differences with others so-called "meshless" and "particle" methods. The first applications of the PFEM belong mostly to the fluid dynamics domain, but chances are that the method could be used in a very interesting way in solving solids non-linear problems as well: therefore some perspectives on the possible future applications of PFEM are given.

The R software (R Core Development Team, 2012) is an open-source statistical software that allows data handling, statistical analyses and model fitting, , and graphical representations, among others. It is very flexible and has lots of pre-installed statistical methods. It is working under all operating systems, including Windows, Linux/UNIX and MacOS. The R community is worldwide and proposes free exchanges of shared R packages through the CRAN (comprehensive R archive network). However, the user needs some practice to become familiar with the software, as it does not have easy to use interface, yet. The purpose of this workshop is to illustrate some aspects of this software with applied purposes. A data set from the field of clinical psychology will be considered throughout the workshop as an illustrative example. Data loading in R, data manipulation, summary and simple statistics, graphics, basic (t-tests, ANOVA, …) and advanced (factor analysis, generalized linear modeling, item response theory, …) statistical analyses will be described and illustrated. Live demonstrations will be run and participants will be encouraged to practice during the workshop. Participants are required to bring their own laptops, preferably with R already installed (technical assistance will be provided before the workshop to help participants in installing R if necessary). The workshop will be mostly Windows users oriented. The illustrative data set will also be available for participants.

This working paper is divided into two parts. The first part provides a reminder and theoritical background in fluid thermodynamics (first law, second law, ideal/real gases, liquids, thermodynamic processes). The second part applies the theory to the study of a simple Organic Rankine Cycle, by modeling the 4 main processes (pumping, evaporation, expansion, condensation). [less ▲]
