Ce projet s’intéresse à la place que tient aujourd’hui l’esquisse et les représentations 3D au sein du processus de conception, et plus particulièrement au sein des phases amont de la création chez les designers de produit. La question posée est la pertinence de l’esquisse au sein du système global des représentations externes et sa place actuelle dans le monde des possibles offerts par la CAO. La finalité de la recherche est l’objectivation d’un concept IHM pouvant effectivement et efficacement supporter les designers en phase créative. [less ▲]

We present an easy way to simulate and fit light curves of microlensing events for the particular case of binary stellar systems with occultation, using semi-automatic graphical interfaces written in IDL language. Gravitational microlensing effects are known to induce light amplifications of the background source and, until now, photometry has been the main technique used to study this phenomenon. A good software, capable to fit multiple parameters of the observed light curve of the microlens event, would allow astronomers to obtain important informations about the physical characteristics of the objects studied. The developpement of such a software is focused to some peculiar case, briefly treated in Sec. 1. The software, written following the parametrization described in Sec. 2, is presented in Sec. 3 and 4. [less ▲]

Teaching cooperation-related issues to AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) students is a major stake nowadays. There are many reasons for that: construction projects become more and more complex and cooperation practices are evolving in both organizational and IT-based ways. It is notably for these reasons that the issue of IT is addressed in most of the AEC-oriented schools and universities. Traditionally IT is taught to support the tasks of each specific construction field (e.g. CAD for architects, simulation tools for static engineers etc.). The Digital Cooperative Studio, presented in this article, considers IT as a support to cooperation and especially its communication and coordination dimensions. Moreover, we describe here a living lab involving students, teachers and researchers. This strong link between research and teaching allows both the students to be “analysts” of their real project situations and the researchers to experiment their development in real project situations.

A formalism is presented to evaluate the Sivers function in constituent quark models. A non-relativistic reduction of the scheme is performed and applied to the Isgur-Karl model. The results obtained are consistent with a sizable Sivers effect and the signs for the u and d flavor contributions turn out to be opposite. The Burkardt Sum Rule is fulfilled to a large extent. After the estimate of the QCD evolution of the results from the momentum scale of the model to the experimental one, a reasonable agreement with the available data is obtained. A calculation of nuclear effects in the extraction of neutron single spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering off 3He is also described. In the kinematics of forth-coming experiments at JLab, it is found that the nuclear effects arising within an Impulse Approximation approach are under control. © American Institute of Physics.

Understanding the natural heterogeneity of coral zooxanthellae density appears as very important to understand variations in coral survival due to bleaching (the loss of these micro-algal symbionts). Heterogeneity of coral bleaching at different observation scales (within a colony, among neighbouring colonies of the same species or on a wider scale) remains largely misunderstood. The present work explores intracolonial, spatial and temporal variations of zooxanthellae density in the coral Acropora globiceps Dana 1846, over a period of three months on the forereef of Moorea, French Polynesia. In our study, intracolonial zooxanthellae densities did not vary significantly. However, zooxanthellae densities differed slightly between inner and outer branches but this trend was not significant at 6, 12 and 18 meters depth. On a wider scale, zooxanthellae densities also vary spatially : a positive correlation was observed between depth and symbiont density (density increases when light intensity decreases, so according to depth). Moreover, the location of colonies exposed to different hydrodynamical conditions was not a parameter controling the concentration of zooxanthellae. Finally, the temporal variation of zooxanthellae densities did not show significant variations even if it decreased slightly over the study period. The results of this study highlight the importance of accounting for variations within and among colonies to determine zooxanthellae densities and to assess the evolution of zooxanthellae populations.

Then the equations of the developed model, so-called ACMEG-TS, are detailed. Finally, the model is validated by the means of comparisons with experiments. This constitutive model constitutes an effective tool for modelling the thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) behaviour of geomaterials involved in the confinement of nuclear waste disposal. [less ▲]

Recent events such as natural catastrophes or terrorism attacks have highlighted the necessity to ensure the structural integrity of buildings under exceptional events. Accord-ing to Eurocodes and some different other national design codes, the structural integrity of civil engineering constructions should be ensured through appropriate measures but, in most of the cases, no precise practical guidelines on how to achieve this goal are provided. A European RFCS project entitled “Robust structures by joint ductility” has been set up in 2004, for three years, with the aim to provide requirements and practical guidelines ensuring the structural integrity of steel and composite structures under exceptional events through an appropriate robustness. In particular, one substructure test simulating the loss of a column in a composite building has been performed at Liège University. Present paper describes ana-lytical, numerical and experimental investigations carried out at Liège University as part of this European project. [less ▲]

The European project SESAME (Southern European Seas: Assessing and Modelling Ecosystem changes) is dedicated to the assessment of ecological changes in the Mediterranean and Black seas during these last decades. This assessment will be done by combining statistical analysis of available data and the development of a 3D hydrodynamical-biogeochemical model. Data available since 1960 for the Black Sea from the databases MEDAR and NATO have been completed with data provided by SESAME partners. These data sets have been analyzed using DIVA, a geostatistical analysis tool developed by the GHER laboratory of the University of Liège. The DIVA analysis relies on a finite element resolution, taking into account coastlines, sub-basins, and advection by ocean currents. DIVA analysis generates spatially interpolated fields for biogeochemical and physical variables. Outputs consist in sets of analysis as well as error fields, and colorimetric scaled maps related to several depth layers. Biogeochemical variables considered consist in measures of chlorophyll, inorganic nutrients concentration, and phytoplankton abundances; physical variables consist in temperature and salinity. These treatments of the Black sea data sets offer an overview of the global pattern of the Black sea biogeochemical structure, and its evolution through the time periods concerned by the project. The interpolated fields generated by the DIVA tool will be used to validate the outputs of the 3D hydrodynamical-biogeochemical model developed for the north-western shelf of the Black sea in the framework of SESAME.

It has been found in experiment that the local-scale pit corrosion of aluminum alloy 7075-T6 can lead to dramatic loss of its macroscopic tensile ductility. Based on the Gurson’s void model, the present paper aims to investigate quantitatively the changing characteristics of the plastic property and ultimate strength for the aluminum alloy with skin-deep pit corrosion. The tensile behaviors of the corroded 7075-T6 specimens with the different degrees of pit corrosion and weight loss are estimated by micromechanical analysis in this paper, and also the yielding strengths of the specimens are evaluated by the Gurson’s criterion. The predicted properties of the corroded specimens are in accordance with the experimental results very well. [less ▲]

During the editorial boom in the Argentina of the 40s and the 50s, several translations of authors like William Faulkner, Virginia Woolf, Samuel Beckett, Jean Genet, and Henry James, among others, were published.

This paper deals with the synergy between these translations and a new anti-realistic poetics of narrative texts that emerged in Argentine literature in that period. Being Jorge Luis Borges the paradigmatic translator in this process, his translations of Woolf's Orlando and Faulkner's The Wild Palms are analyzed showing their foreignizing translation strategies.

We study targeted energy transfer (TET) in a two degree-of-freedom damped system caused by 1:1 transient resonance capture (TRC). The system consists of a linear oscillator strongly coupled to an essentially nonlinear attachment. First, we study the underlying structure of the Hamiltonian dynamics of the system, and then show that, for sufficiently small values of viscous damping, the nonlinear damped transitions are strongly influenced by the underlying topological structure of periodic and quasiperiodic orbits of the hamiltonian system. Then, a detailed computational study of the different types of nonlinear transitions that occur in the weakly damped system is presented. As a result of these studies, conditions that lead to effective or even optimal TET from the linear system to the nonlinear attachment are determined. Finally, direct analytical treatment of the governing strongly nonlinear damped equations of motion is performed through slow/fast partition of the transient responses, in order to analytically model the dynamics the region of optimal TET, and to determine the characteristic time scales of the dynamics that influence the capacity of the nonlinear attachment to passively absorb and locally dissipate broadband energy from the linear oscillator.

The CAMEVA project (Automated system for the identification and quantitative measurement of ore minerals) aims to develop an automated system able to perform the identification and quantification of the different minerals present in a sample of metallic ores, in order to facilitate their industrial use. The system comprises a motorised reflected light microscope, a filter wheel (monochromator), a research BW camera, and a computer running a digital image analysis software associated to an expert system specially developed for this application. Multispectral reflectance values are measured for visible light and near IR and UV (350-1000 nm), and no polarisation is usually employed in order to reduce measurement variability due to mineral anisotropy. Mineral identification is carried out by comparison of measured reflectances with spectral reflectance databases (e.g. IMA-COM). Previous experiences showed that the most common ores can be differentiated through the analysis of a microscopic RGB colour image, by constraining the search with additional information such as the type of deposit and the corresponding mineral association. The project goes further, and intends to identify most of the ores from multi-spectral images, including non-visible bands, resorting to an expert system specifically built to deal with the different types of information available (spectral reflectance, sample origin, mineral associations, morphology, etc). 2 Validation of the method will be carried out by comparative análisis of standards and samples exchanged between the laboratories. Development pays special attention to the total automation of the process (including calibration) and to the self-learning capabilities of the system. Contacts with research institutions and with the industry will allow to apply the system to real problems. The system can be used to control the processing of ores as well as to prevent pollution for the protection of the environment (e.g. sulphides in coal or in industrial tailings). Further applications can be envisaged in the future: e.g. other minerals, coal or materials, particles, etc. [less ▲]

The tuned mass damper (TMD) is a simple and efficient device, but it is only effective when it is precisely tuned to the frequency of a vibration mode. Because nonlinear vibrating structures have resonant frequencies that vary with the amount of total energy in the system, the efficiency of a TMD is questionable in this case. In the present study, the performance of an essentially nonlinear attachment, termed a nonlinear energy sink (NES), is assessed. It is shown that, unlike the TMD, an NES has no preferential resonant frequency, which makes it a good candidate for vibration mitigation of nonlinear vibrating structures. [less ▲]

The morphology and dynamics of the host are described. The gas ionization and velocity are mapped as a function of the distance to the central QSO. Reflection or scattering of the QSO Halpha line from remote regions of the galaxy is detected. The line shifts show that the matter responsible for the light reflection moves away from the QSO, likely accelerated by its radiation pressure. Moreover, different resolved emission regions are found in the central kpc, both in the images and the spectra. [less ▲]

This paper investigates the succession process as perceived and lived by daughters taking over the family business, with a gender perspective. Despite the rich literature on the succession process in family firms, few studies use a gender approach, though an increasing number of ventures are launched, taken over and managed by women, largely contributing to the economic development. In line with Dumas (1998), Barbot et al. (2005) and Vera & Dean (2005), our research aims at analyzing the succession process when daughters take over the family business. Our contribution is a gender analysis of the process, including the social phenomena of separation and hierarchy, with a focus on family composition. Using the model of Cadieux et al. (2000), we identify at each stage of the succession process, the key actors of the environment, we analyze their interactions and see how they open opportunities or rise difficulties in terms of legitimacy for daughters. The qualitative thematic analysis of eleven detailed case studies reveals a strong influence of the presence or absence of a son on the motivations and positioning of daughters, as well as on the construction of their legitimacy towards family and stakeholders. This study leads to several implications for public and private initiatives. [less ▲]

Le Master Complémentaire Formasup (60 crédits) est organisé depuis maintenant 6 ans à l’université de Liège. Son public-cible est constitué d’enseignants du supérieur, de Belgique et de l’étranger, désireux de réfléchir à leur pratique enseignante, de se remettre en question, d’entrer en projet pour innover dans leur classe, de mener une recherche et de communiquer sur ces avancées professionnelles. Le courant du « Scholarship of Teaching and Learning » (SoTL, Boyer 1990) nous a guidés dans la constitution d’un référentiel de compétences qui s’est affiné au fil des années et reflète aujourd’hui ces préoccupations. Pour développer ces compétences, les enseignants inscrits à Formasup sont chacun aidés d’un accompagnateur. Ils interagissent à travers un outil en ligne qui leur permet de dialoguer à propos de leur développement des compétences ciblées dans le référentiel. Ils se voient progresser, sont encouragés dans ces progrès et construisent peu à peu leur portfolio professionnel. Ce portfolio jouera le rôle de « dossier de réussite » (Tardif 2006). Après un cadrage contextuel et conceptuel, les trois outils (référentiel - outil d’accompagnement au développement de compétences - portfolio) font chacun l’objet d’une présentation, dont se dégage l’importance de la cohérence entre les différents instruments de la formation professionnelle des enseignants.

In architectural design process, the human error has a particular status. The later it is detected, the more expensive it is. Moreover, some errors can not be detected given the current state of the design process and object definition. In this paper, we propose a model based on cognitive theories about human errors, applied to architectural preliminary design. In this model we classify the consequences of a design decision (direct, indirect, detected and undetected), we describe the steps of decision in architecture in relation to the process of errors detection and we introduce the concept of evolutive context.

Wind Turbines seem for many people to be an intrusive change in the cultural landscape especially in countryside (Pasqualetti). The Lacsawep research project aims to analyse and asses the landscape capacity and social attitudes toward wind energy parks in Belgium. Two complementary research lines are developed. On the one hand, a representative survey is done in order to understand the way people valorise landscape in relation to the location of wind energy. On the other hand, the research looks for the background and the underlying in-depth process explaining attitudes and possible “NIMBY-ism” toward energy park. The paper focuses on the attitudes relating to five wind parks in different areas in Belgium. The first case studies underline one interesting concept to understand the acceptation of wind turbines in local landscape: the “reterritorialisation”. People may accept a scar in their landscape if the turbines work “symbolically” for their needs. The paper analyses what people means by landscape, and how they are ready to barter a part of their landscape capital for a local effort to reduce the ecological footprint. [less ▲]

Environmental causes of heaves are well described, but the molecular mechanisms of the disease remain unclear. Using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), disparate results have been obtained concerning cytokines expression profile. cDNA microarray appears to be so far the platform of choice for massively parallel gene expression profiling and provides a good tool for exploratory research. However, equine-specific microarrays are not yet available on the market. Because they are commercially available, highly specific and well annotated, human and mouse large-scale microarrays are an exploratory alternative to equine-specific microarrays. In the present study, the purpose was to highlight new targets not previously related to the disease and able to improve our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of the disease. A human microarray was used to study gene expression in nucleated cells originating from peripheral blood and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in heaves-affected horses. With a four-fold cut-off, a total of 46 candidates were identified with differentially regulated genes between heaves-affected horses and controls. Based on their documented function, five of these genes were selected for the real-time quantitative RT-PCR (RT-qPCR) validation procedure: CYBB, BTG1, MARCKS, PTX3 and PTPRC. The RT-qPCR results confirmed those obtained with the microarray, pointing out these genes as new directions for future experiments. However, the human microarray failed to detect the presence of IL-1beta and Il-8, otherwise confirmed by RT-qPCR, and the expression profile of the disease could not be obtained [less ▲]
