In the field of structural health monitoring or machine condition moni-toring, most vibration based methods reported in the literature require to measure responses at several locations on the structure. In machine condition monitoring, the number of available vibration sensors is often small and it is not unusual that only one single sensor is used to monitor a machine. This paper presents industrial applications of two possible extensions of output-only Blind Source Separation (BSS) techniques, namely Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Second Order Blind Identification (SOBI). Through the use of block Hankel matrices, these methods may be used when a reduced set of sensors or even one single sensor is available. The objective is to address the problem of fault detection in mechanical systems using subspace-based methods. The detection is achieved by comparing the subspace features between the reference and a current state using the concept of angular coherence between subspaces. [less ▲]

In order to analyze and try to mitigate the potential consequences of a hazard threatening a complex socio-technical system, the risk analysis framework is classically used. Many risk analysis models recognize now widely the importance of integrating social aspects into the analysis. Another way to deal with potential consequences of hazards is to analyze the vulnerability of the system considered. This paradigm overcomes the shortcomings of risk analysis in situations when the knowledge about the probabilities and the outcomes is incomplete or insufficient. Studies in the literature considering natural hazards show that socio-economic factors are integrated more often and in a natural way in vulnerability analysis models. Nevertheless, it seems that such considerations are missing into models aiming at evaluating the vulnerability to an industrial hazard, especially at a very local level where the technical aspects seem to be predominant. What can we learn from the analysis of the models addressing vulnerability to natural hazards in terms of the integration of social factors? To answer this question, we realized a systematic literature review from scientific journal papers on vulnerability analysis published in the last two decades. We synthesize this review and we propose an integrated vulnerability analysis model; in order to test this model we use as a case-study the incident reports collected in a nuclear facility in Belgium. This confrontation allows us to highlight important factors to be taken into account for a vulnerability analysis conducted in such a context. [less ▲]

The metaphor of the city as an organism, while referring to renowned and common urban interpretations, has produced a very diverse level of knowledge of the territory. The reading of tissues brought about by the anthropization often seems outdated, or even inefficient by virtue of the complexity of materials which characterize the various spheres that nowadays escape us to the point that they become extraneous. Nebulae, emergences (R. Koolhaas), places of anthroposages (A. Corboz), sprawl or diffuse cities (B. Secchi), are the denominations given to the territories which have neither body nor time. These places are nothing more than the cumulative amounts of corporeality reduced to the status of the plan. This reduction of substance, in correlation with the condition of otherness which provokes a distancing of the contexts we have nonetheless had a part in creating intrigues us and constitutes the triggering event of our approach. Thus, the attention paid to what has emerged is too often limited to the simple description of the situational analysis. Based on this observation, we were interested in the case of the city of Liege, and more particularly in the dynamics between the city´s growth and the mutations of the geomorphologic characters of its location. The observation was primarily aimed at those parts of the territory that are nowadays rejected, also known as «junkspace» (R. Koolhaas). In reality, the research covers vast hybrid areas affected by the industrial decline, leaving them between a state of abandon and a state of future expectations at the same time. This situation today characterises the landscape of the Meuse Valley, upstream and downstream of the city of Liege (BE). Since the XVIIIth century, the human being has, in these places, accumulated materials, machines, different products, production surplus and waste as if he were seized with a fever of change or carried away on a path leading towards an ideal of modernity which becomes more and more elusive. The territory drawn by the rural patterns disappeared in line with the advancement of the industrial tissues which for a very long time represented an entire region´s pride over its economic prowess. However, when the production fever started fading away, and then vanished altogether, the loss of activity gave the landscape the appearance of an injured body, with certain parts amputated. It was soon filled with scattered objects, as ignorant witnesses of new incongruous spatial organisations. The diversity of theses tissues and their abundance of fragments, carrying past and forgotten logics, forced us to reinterpret the process of formation simply to understand what has happened. And hence, maybe also to understand the roots for the forgetfulness and the current lack of interest. This way of acquiring knowledge has helped us re-establish a narrative which nobody keeps the memory. It has also highlighted both the lack and the need for more open means of interpretation of urban and landscape materials. All this is done so as to stimulate reinvention which is essential to re-launch and nurture a transformation process which contains a plethora of new acceptable, distinctive and sustainable solutions for the future.

This article presents a methodology for segmenting industrial markets on the basis of functional involvement in phases of the purchasing decision process. A decision matrix is developed as a structured measurement instrument to collect information about the composition of decision making units within target firms. The implication of this segmentation approach for industrial marketing strategy formulation are discussed. [less ▲]

This paper muses on whether there can be, there is, and there should exist a nexus between European Union (“EU”) competition law and industrial policy. A well-known, long lasting grievance in the history of EU competition law is indeed that the European Commission (“the Commission”) has allegedly enforced the competition rules dogmatically, and turned a blind eye on industrial policy considerations. Lately, this policy debate has revived. With the current economic debacle in the Western world, decades of free-market economic policies – including competition policies – inherited from the so-called “Washington consensus” are called into question. In contrast, thriving economic models like Brazil, China, or India where the State interferes with the market at the expense of free competition, are increasingly looked by the “old world” as a possible source of inspiration. Those new developments justify devoting another paper to the question whether industrial policy considerations could and should inform EU competition enforcement. To address it, we follow a four steps methodology. We first solve definitional issues by describing the various possible meanings of “industrial policy” (I). Second, we follow a legalistic approach to review whether such considerations can, as a matter of positive law, play a role (II). Third, we turn to empirical analysis, to examine if there has been some industrial policy influence in the Commission’s case-law (III). Fourth, we review consequentialist arguments to assess whether industrial policy considerations should play a stronger role in EU competition enforcement (IV). [less ▲]

The cost of pharmacotherapy is increasing in the health care budget. The pharmaceutical industry is facing the exhaustion of medications that are largely prescribed and have a high profitability (blockbusters). Because of patient heterogeneity, there is a great interindividual variability of the responses to drug therapy. Thus, it is essential to better detect potential <<good responders>> to avoid waste of resources resulting from the prescription of expensive drugs to poor responders. The development of personalized medicine, or precision medicine, certainly offers opportunities to the pharmaceutical industry, but also exposes it to new big challenges. [less ▲]
