This cahier aims to identify and analyze the consequences of international migration movements on the school itineraries and aspirations of children who have been exposed to international migration between Mexico and the U. S. Some of these children are active actors of migratory flows because they moved from one country to another. Others are not active migrants; however, given the fact that they belong to divided families due to international migration, they are exposed to the impacts of their family members’ decisions. Consequently, two critical components of their migratory experiences will be the focus of our analysis. Firstly, we will analyze their school trajectory and secondly the family dispersion due to their migratory decisions. [less ▲]

The aim of “HSS-SERF” project was to investigate and evaluate the seismic performance of dual-steel building frames, realized from two different steel grades: Mild Carbon Steel (MCS) and High Strength Steel (HSS). A comprehensive set of dual-steel frames (moment resisting, concentrically and eccentrically braced) were designed, which allowed the identification of realistic member sizes for both MCS and HSS components. Several practical solutions for bolted and welded beam-to-column joints were identified and designed. Further, an extensive numerical program was carried out for the seismic performance evaluation of frames. The ductility and over-strength demands, and q-factors associated with different performance levels were evaluated. Furthermore, experimental and numerical investigations were carried out on joint assemblies and components. Guidelines were elaborated for the conceptual design and PBD of dual-steel frames under seismic actions, and the technical and economic efficiency of dualsteel structures vs. conventional ones were finally evaluated. The main outcomes of the project consist in: (i) development and characterisation in terms of global ductility and over-strength demands of dual-steel frames with composite columns (innovative solutions in European context); (ii) development of design recommendations; (iii) proposal of innovative solutions for beam-to-column joints with composite columns; (iv) recommendation for weld details and appropriate component method design approaches; (v) evaluation of technical and economic efficiency of the dual-steel approach.

The goal of the project FloodLand is to investigate the complex interactions between landuse change and future flood risk. Landuse change is assumed to be mainly driven by population growth and socio-economic factors. It affects future flood risk by altering catchment hydrology as well as vulnerability in the floodplains; but the feedback effect of (the perception of) changes in flood hazard on landuse evolution is also considered. The research is based on a chain of modelling tools, which represent parts of the natural and human systems, including: landuse change modelling, transportation modelling as an onset for the estimation of indirect flood damage, continuous hydrological modelling (forced by precipitation and temperature data disturbed according to climate change scenarios), as well as efficient hydraulic modelling of inundation flow in the floodplains. Besides reproducing a broad spectrum of processes, the modelling approach spans over multiple scales, from the regional or catchment level down to the floodplain and building levels. This distinctive feature is reflected both within the individual models and through their combination involving fine-scale detailed analyses (or data) embedded within coarser models at a broader level.

Ce projet a pour objectif de caractériser la flore recolonisant spontanément les zones xériques non exploitées récemment de la carrière de Loën, du point de vue de la diversité spécifique et de la fonctionnalité écologique. Les communautés végétales ont été caractérisées au sein du site de Loën (diversité alpha) et d’un ensemble d’autres carrières représentatives de la diversité des contextes géographiques des carrières calcaires en Région Wallonne (diversité béta). L’étude a montré que, sur des laps de temps de plusieurs décennies, un processus de succession écologique s’est mis en place au sein du site de Loën, mais que cette succession ne tend pas vers une formation typique de pelouse sèche. Les explications peuvent être d’une part, que la disponibilité et l’apport de graines de pelouses sèches avoisinantes est insuffisant, et d’autre part, que le contexte abiotique pourrait être plus favorable à d’autres types de végétations herbacées. Cette étude illustre que des expériences de semis seraient souhaitable afin de définir les objectifs de restauration de la carrière de Loën et des carrières qui se trouvent dans des situations comparables.

With respect to water management in the Meuse basin, the hydrological consequences of climate change have been taken into account in several studies so far; but this is not the case of many other environmental and socio-economic changes, including trends in future water demand. The objective of this report is to serve as an onset for the development of a first approach to estimate at a relatively large-scale future water demand in the Meuse basin. Based on a review of recent literature, this report discusses the key drivers which influence water demand, with the aim of identifying the most suitable methods to implement in a subsequence more detailed analysis, as well as to highlight the data needs.

During this research, previously unexplored meandering flows in free-surface rectangular shallow reservoirs were investigated theoretically, experimentally and numerically. For the first time, a complete description of the hydrodynamics of the meandering flows was obtained from laboratory experiments. An innovative procedure for the characterisation of the physics of the flow was developed based on several techniques, including Large Scale Particle Image Velocimetry (LSPIV), Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and a new topology algorithm. This research provides new insights into these fascinating meandering flows, of high practical relevance in civil and environmental engineering. Six papers were written and, so far, five of them have been accepted for publication (two in international journals and three in peer-reviewed international conference proceedings). [less ▲]

Le projet de recherche est basé sur le concept de système de production de l'habitat. Un système de production de l'habitat vise à accroître et à améliorer l'offre en logements. Il se structure par les interactions entre les modes d'habiter (la demande), les modes de production (l'offre) et les modes de gestion (l'intervention de la puissance publique). Pour le contexte wallon, le système de production actuel est lié à un usage peu parcimonieux de la ressource foncière et à des problèmes importants d’étalement de la périurbanisation. Néanmoins, des signaux avant-coureurs de la mise en place d'un système de production plus vertueux vis-à-vis des principes stratégiques de l'aménagement du territoire semblent se manifester. La recherche I.5. intitulée « Production de l’habitat et enjeux territoriaux » ambitionne d'étudier l'ampleur de ces changements et de comprendre quels sont les processus socioéconomiques qui les instituent. Au final, son objectif est de préciser comment l’intervention de la puissance publique peut s’appuyer sur ces pratiques émergentes en vue de soutenir la transition vers un nouveau système pour la production de l’habitat wallon. Notre ambition est donc d’identifier les conditions qui conduisent à des pratiques plus vertueuses vis-à-vis des principes stratégiques de l’aménagement durable, afin de les renforcer et de les généraliser dès que possible.

The shared frailty model is one of the popular tool to analyze correlated right-censored time-to-event data. In the shared frailty model, the latent frailty is assumed to be shared by the members of a cluster and is assigned a parametric distribution, typically, a gamma distribution due to its conjugacy. However, in case of interval-censored time-to-event data, the inclusion of gamma frailties results in complicated intractable likelihoods, where the conjugacy property does not hold anymore. Here, we propose a semiparametric Bayesian frailty model for analyzing such data. We discuss three parametric specifications for frailty distribution in the analysis of interval-censored data. Afterwards we call particular attention to nonparametric specification of the frailty distribution. The results of the simulation study suggest that the proposed approach is robust to misspecification of the frailty distribution. Moreover, the performance of the proposed methodology is quite good in practical situations where the frailty distribution is multimodal or skewed. The approach is applied to dental data arising from the Signal Tandmobiel Study. [less ▲]

This paper aims at exploring how countries of origin can affect migrants’ socio-cultural integration in multicultural European societies. Socio-cultural integration is considered through the lenses of different kinds of social interactions between migrants and host society namely: intermarriages, interethnic friendship, interethnic relations in workplaces, and encounters in the neighbourhood. The literature review highlighted that these social interactions prove to depend on a multiplicity of factors related mainly to the destination country (such as residential segregation, degree of racism and acceptance, opportunities for encounters and neighbourhood effects) and of individual factors related to the migrant (such as demographic characteristics, migration trajectory and length of residence and work position). The impact of countries of origin and transnational links is more difficult to assess considering that little research has directly dealt with the issue. However, the paper shows that some non-state actors such as family members and some state-actors such as Ministries or consulates, may have an influence on the social interactions of emigrants abroad even though this influence can be indirect. The paper tries to map actors and related actions including very specific cases like family pressure to discourage intermarriage or broader ones through programmes targeting diaspora which may have an empowerment effect on emigrants and thus foster their socio-cultural integration. Finally, through the paper, some specific case studies on transnational ties and integration are presented and several hypotheses and questions for further research are highlighted. [less ▲]

This paper offers an insight into how emigration countries influence immigrants in their host society. Our main objective is to explore the following questions: first, whether and how emigration countries can influence the civic participation of immigrants in immigration countries and second, whether transnational links, in particular political transnational activities, have an impact on civic participation in receiving countries. Civic participation is approached as a form of political participation outside of traditional political institutions. As an active and collective dimension of engagement in society, one form of civic participation consists in being active in organizations. This paper addresses three forms of involvement: in local politics (mainstream organizations focused on mainstream issues), immigrant and homeland politics (migrant organizations focused on ethnic or country of origin issues) and finally a combination of mainstream and other issues with bi-national associations. The paper also raises the issue of maintaining links with the country of origin and simultaneously integrating into the immigration country. It questions, in particularly, the impact of transnational civic engagement on civic participation in destination countries. Several case studies are presented and, in the case of Mexico/U.S., some show that the Mexican migrant experience in hometown associations help maintain civic ties with Mexico and positively affect civic participation with U.S. issues. Other cases indicate that civic participation can, indeed, be influenced by transnational links, but also that it relies on the institutional context of the receiving country: for example questions such as access to citizenship). Possible conflicts of interests with countries of origin and countries of destination are also raised in relation to the civic participation of emigrants here and there. Finally, different diaspora policy mechanisms are put forward and in particular, the paper hypothesizes the existence of diaspora empowering mechanism. In order to highlight this mechanism, we map country of origin actors also chart the different kind of actions that can affect civic participation. [less ▲]

Le présent rapport avait pour objectif d’éclairer les choix de la BICfB en matière d’archivage pérenne des périodiques électroniques, en examinant en particulier les conditions contractuelles des abonnements en cours et les solutions tierces d’archivage existantes (LOCKSS, CLOCKSS, Portico), en évaluant le coût des solutions envisagées, en articulant ces solutions avec l’archivage papier et en proposant des scénarios d’application. Il propose en conclusion une échelle de solutions garantissant l’accès pérenne aux périodiques électroniques, en distinguant une stratégie prioritaire, basée sur la participation à la LOCKSS Alliance, la présence de clauses garantissant l’accès aux titres sur la plateforme éditeur en cas de transfert, de cessation de publication ou de fin d’abonnement, et la prise en compte de l’archivage via CLOCKSS, et des pistes complémentaires, plus diverses et plus ou moins coûteuses, à sélectionner au cas par cas en fonction d’éléments externes et d’analyse coûts-bénéfices, pour garantir la préservation pérenne du portefeuille non couvert par le premier scénario.

Within the RFCS project RobustImpact an experimental campaign, aimed at investigating the behaviour of framed steel and concrete composite structures under accidental loading conditions, was planned. The residual strength of the damaged member after an impact as well as the dynamic interaction of the member with the surrounding structure will be experimentally investigated. The activation of alternate load paths will be also studied through tests on 3D slab and 2Dbeam systems. Additional tests on composite joints, beam-to-column joints, column bases and T-stub tests under high speed loading and impact loading will contribute at investigating the influences of strain rate effect on the deformation capacity of the connections.This document collects the drawings prepared by the above mentioned partners for producing the test specimens.

Rhagoletis completa est un insecte (Diptera : Tephritidae) nuisible listé à l’annexe I, partie A, chapitre I de la directive 2000/29/CE. À ce titre, cet organisme nuisible est également listé en annexe B de l’arrêté du 31 juillet 2000, ce qui en fait un organisme de lutte obligatoire sous certaines conditions sur tout le territoire français. En France métropolitaine, cet organisme nuisible est très largement répandu dans le bassin de production du grand sud-est où la stratégie de lutte mise en place visait à limiter sa pression. Il est également présent dans le bassin de production du grand sud-ouest (Aquitaine et Midi- Pyrénées), bien que le coeur de ce bassin de production de noix semble encore préservé. La stratégie mise en place dans cette région vise encore à limiter son extension et à protéger les zones encore exemptes. Au vu de la dispersion de R. completa dans le grand sud-est, l’Anses est saisie pour la réalisation d’une analyse de risques phytosanitaires (ARP) portant sur R. completa et ce, sur l’ensemble du territoire de l’Union Européenne. Cette ARP pourra servir de base aux discussions communautaires permettant la révision du statut de cet organisme au sein de la directive 2000/29/CE ainsi que la définition de mesures de gestion appropriées le cas échéant dans le cadre du dispositif passeport phytosanitaire européen (PPE).

In this paper, the problem of integrating photo- voltaic panels into low-voltage distribution networks is addressed. A distributed scheme is proposed that modulates the active and reactive power output of inverters to prevent overvoltage problems. The proposed scheme is model-free and makes use of limited communication between the controllers, in the form of a distress signal, only during emergency conditions. It prioritizes the use or reactive power, while active power curtailment is performed only as a last resort. The performance of the scheme is tested using dynamic simulations, first on a single low-voltage feeder, then on a larger network composed of 14 low-voltage feeders. Its performance is compared to a centralized scheme based on the solution of an Optimal Power Flow problem, whose objective function is to minimize the active power curtailment. The proposed scheme successfully mitigates overvoltage situations due to high photovoltaic penetration and performs almost as well as the Optimal Power Flow based solution with significantly less information and communication requirements.

From the 17th until the 28th March 2014, the faculty of architecture of University of Liège has organised a workshop for its students (heritage conservation orientation), together with the students of the joint specialized master in conservation and students from Hasselt and Antwerp Universties. The aim of the workshop was to consider different scenarios for the future of the church. This rich pedagogic experience, including lectures, a study trip and team work on the site, has resulted in a general report presenting scenarios for the future of the church, ranging from mere conservation and restoration to provocative perspectives such as demolition and different types of reuse.

For a good understanding of security related phenomenons on a specific period and a specific place, autorities use different tools: objective crime data, mostly understood as police data, is then completed by subjective data which permits to include the citizen's opinion. Since de borders are no obstacle for criminals, our understanding of crime must also be international. Concerning objective crime data, this is already the case in the Euregio Maas-Rhine. With this study, the autorities also have a tool for a better understanding of subjective data. In fact, 2035 subjects of 4 different regions from 3 different countries have been questionned. The added value of this transborder approach has to be found in the fact that the same mesure has been applied to the entire territory which allows us to compare the results. In fact, different results can help to find best-practices and experts. On the opposite, same results can show common problems which need common solutions. In the whole report we see that the existence or non existence of borders is very important. [less ▲]
