Copulas enable to specify multivariate distributions with given marginals. Various parametric proposals were made in the literature for these quantities, mainly in the bivariate case. They can be systematically derived from multivariate distributions with known marginals, yielding e.g. the normal and the Student copulas. Alternatively, one can restrict his/her interest to a sub-family of copulas named Archimedean. They are characterized by a strictly decreasing convex function on (0, 1) which tends to +infinity at 0 (when strict) and which is 0 at 1. A ratio approximation of the generator and of its first derivative using B-splines is proposed and the associated parameters estimated using Markov chains Monte Carlo methods. The estimation is reasonably quick. The fitted generator is smooth and parametric. The generated chain(s) can be used to build "credible envelopes" for the above ratio function and derived quantities such as Kendall's tau, posterior predictive probabilities, etc. Parameters associated to parametric models for the marginals can be estimated jointly with the copula parameters. This is an interesting alternative to the popular two-step procedure which assumes that the regression parameters are fixed known quantities when it comes to copula parameter(s) estimation. A simulation study is performed to evaluate the approach. The practical utility of the method is illustrated by a basic analysis of the dependence structure underlying the diastolic and the systolic blood pressures in male subjects. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V.

A wide range of scientifically validated Building Performance Simulation tools BPS is available internationally. The users of those tools are mainly researchers, physicists and experts who value empirical validation, analytical verification and calibration of uncertainty as defined by e.g. BESTEST. However, literature and comparative surveys indicate that most architects who use BPS tools in design practice are much more concerned with the (1) Usability and Information Management (UIM) of interface and (2) the Integration of Intelligent design Knowledge-Base (IIKB). Those two issues are the main factors for identifying a building simulation program as “Architect Friendly”. Now, with the advancement of BPS tools and the recent announcements of direct links between BIM or non-BIM modeling tools and BPS tools it is important to compare the existing programs. Based on an online survey, this paper presents the results of comparing ten major BPS tools. The following programs are compared: ECOTECT, HEED, Energy 10, Design Builder, eQUEST, DOE-2, Green Building Studio, IES VE, Energy Plus and Energy Plus-SketchUp Plugin (OpenStudio). With 249 valid responses, the survey ranked the tools in three classes and revealed that architects seek the IIKB above the UIM of the interface. Finally, the paper summarizes the key findings and underlines the major requirements for future improvement and development of BPS tools, mainly from an architectural perspective. [less ▲]

Late modernity and its corollary, cultural capitalism, demand that everybody adopt self-sculpture as a life project. This phenomenon, which Bell describes as an « aesthetic justification of everyday life», seems to have led cities to exhibit themselves as well –in a Bilbao effect - and architecture to put on a show of itself. But what becomes of the artistic field’s limits and of beauty in the face of this new contemporary injunction? These are the questions we intend to tackle as a contribution to the seminar on venustas in the age of world market. [less ▲]

S’inscrivant dans un contexte complexe, la production architecturale des années 1930 offre un visage bigarré reflétant les bouleversements technologiques, formels, politiques et sociaux d’une société en quête de stabilité. Les innovations de la nouvelle architecture développées au lendemain de la guerre trouvent peu d’écho à Liège. Alors que des personnalités comme Huib Hoste ou Victor Bourgeois se lancent dans un rationalisme d’inspiration internationale, Liège continue de miser sur le régionalisme ou sur le style Beaux-arts. Il faut attendre la fin des années 1920 pour voir apparaître les premiers signes d’une remise en question des principes académiques. La conférence replacera en premier lieu l’architecture au centre du débat culturel. L’analyse de la scène éditoriale liégeoise permettra notamment d’identifier précisément les tensions qui ont animé la scène professionnelle locale et qui ont largement débordé du cadre restreint de l’architecture. Au niveau de la production, l’exposé abordera plusieurs typologies qui ont marqué les années 1930 comme le logement social, l’habitation unifamiliale, l’immeuble à appartements ou les infrastructures publiques.

Cette communication à deux voix vise à apporter un regard particulier sur l’évolution de la prison. Il s’agit avant tout de partager une réflexion menée conjointement par un architecte et un criminologue. Il s'agit d'observer l'évolution des prisons belges sous deux échelles : l'une "macro" s'interrogeant sur le rapport ville-prison, et l'autre "micro" orientée sur l'organisation interne des établissements pénitentiaires.

This paper presents the software architecture of a traffic engineering toolbox. The methods already included cover MPLS-based intra-domain traffic engineering (TE), but will soon cover IP-based TE and inter-domain TE. This toolbox provides an open source software that allows an operator to test methods coming from the academic research. A researcher can also use the toolbox for comparing and promoting his/her TE algorithms. The toolbox is designed to be deployed as an on-line tool in a operational network or as a traffic engineering simulator. We present a case study of traffic optimisation on the GÉANT network that compares different routing algorithms, evaluates different protection cost, and analyses the worst-case link failure.
