Non-contact optical measurement methods are essential tools in many industrial domain. Hololab developed an original out of plane, in line and almost common path interferometer based on polarization states separation using a coated prism for fringes projection. This setup has proven efficient in the field of arts and archaeology but does not meet the demands of the industrial world. Above the acquisition speed and the post treatment process, one of the disadvantages comes from the sensitivity of the system to the environment. To overcome this disadvantage, the coated prism is substituted by a Savart plate. This device has already been used in another field of optical metrology as a shearing device. Many advantages of the prism substitution are discussed and recorded fringes patterns will be shown. [less ▲]

Relative positioning with GNSS is generally used to achieve precise positions in the frame of critical applications (surveying, photo-control...). On this basis, we have developed a software which allows to compute a positioning error due to the ionosphere only using reference stations belonging to the Belgian Dense Network (BDN). This network consists in 66 GPS (dual-frequency) receivers over the whole Belgium. The drawback of this method is that this computation needs the design matrix which contains coefficients depending on satellite constellation geometry. Therefore, like for absolute positioning, a poor geometry (evaluated by the Dilution of Precision, or DOP) can also lead to large positioning error that cannot be separated from the one due to ionospheric effects, and in particular the small-scale structures. The main goal of this paper is to build a similar index to DOP for relative positioning in our software to be able to separate the ionospheric effects from the geometric ones. The final step is to study the feasability of a service for users of relative positioning using the BDN. The objective is to give in post-processing the positioning accuracy degradation for all BDN baselines and to associate a colour scheme to the different degradation classes created. [less ▲]

The marine carbon cycle constitutes a key component of the climate system. It has been shown that one-fourth of the anthropogenic CO2 emitted to the atmosphere is absorbed by the ocean, leading to the acidification of the surface ocean and the modification of seawater carbonate chemistry. This could have major impacts on the ocean biogeochemical carbon cycling and ecosystem dynamics. Yet, the resulting feedbacks on climate change are still poorly understood. Interdisciplinary biogeochemical investigations, assisted by remote sensing, have been conducted during three consecutive years along the shelf break of the Northern Bay of Biscay where coccolithophorid blooms dominated by Emiliania huxleyi are frequently and recurrently observed. Rates of various processes governing the coccolithophore ecosystem dynamics have been determined and air-sea CO2 fluxes evaluated. The key results will be presented and discussed to evaluate the role in climate regulation of calcification, primary production and export processes during coccolithophorid blooms. [less ▲]

Composite materials are known to combine interesting properties of different materials. This research concerns magnesium alloys reinforced by carbon fibres weaves. Such a material can theoretically exhibit a yield strength/density ratio around 500 compared to ~200 for Ti6Al4V and ~125 for Al2024-T6. This composite is thought to be especially promising for aeronautics if interaction between fibres and magnesium can be controlled and optimized. The strategy studied to enhance interaction between matrix and fibres consists in covering a thin layer of carbide former metal (Zr, Ti) by PVD as a primary treatment of carbon weaves. This intermediate product can then be heated up between 300-700°C in an argon atmosphere in order to form stable carbides. The wetability of treated weaves by liquid magnesium is potentially higher because carbides are not fully covalent (partially metallic) and so they can have more interface interaction with liquid metals. Further crystal lattice parameters of particular carbides can be close to the ones of metal crystal lattices and interface energy can consequently be reduced when they form carbide-metal bonds. Furthermore magnesium is known for its high oxygen attraction and is able to reduce a lot metallic oxides. It is a key fact because liquid magnesium easy wets its oxide in certain conditions.

Although intensive works have been devoted to spatiotemporal modeling during the last two decades, there are only a few models dedicated to relationships between two (or more) moving objects. This paper proposes a classification framework of spatiotemporal relationship models based on the ways spatiotemporal histories are analyzed. First, we discuss model conditions of application. Then we propose a classification of spatiotemporal relationship models based on a pyramidal representation of the quantity of extracted information, i.e. the nature and the complexity of provided information, from spatiotemporal histories. This classification aims helping users to choose adequate models for their purposes. The proposed spatiotemporal histories analysis method could lead to the development of new spatiotemporal relationship models. [less ▲]

This paper presents new developments to link OptiView and a Discrete Event production Simulation (DES) software. The OptiView Software, is designed to maximize the number of ship blocks and ship sections produced in workshops during a certain time window. We decided to combine the strong points of both, the OptiView software and the DES simulation. Indeed, the production simulation is very effective for the modelling of the movement of the gantry crane while OptiView is very powerful for the allocation of blocks and optimization of the surface. This tool was developed to support planners to improve the space utilization and workshop productivity. The combination of both methods will deliver better results for lead time and cost. [less ▲]

This paper deals with time-domain surface-impedance boundary conditions in computational magnetodynamics considering both magnetic-vector potential and magnetic-field formulation. Based on the resolution of the 1-D eddy-current problem in a semi-infinite slab, the massive conducting region is accounted for by choosing a number of exponentially decreasing trigonometric basis functions covering the relevant frequency range. Herein the method is elaborated for the magnetic-field formulation. Results for both formulations are compared and validated on a two-dimensional test case. [less ▲]

Nowadays, mean 3D data aquisition techniques are photogrammetry and laserscanning. Their advantage is the huge amount of points that can be measured in a very short time on the field. Nevertheless, the post-processing associated to these techniques allowing to build a real 3D model from the clouds of points is very long. Therefore, we developed a geocodification ("field to finish") for the 3D data acquisition at a low and/or middle level of details. Despite each point is measured one by one with a total station, the user can gain a lot of time because of the almost-absence of post processing. This paper shows some of the developed techniques and tries to demonstrate the possible complementarity between geocodification, laserscanning and photogrammtry. [less ▲]

As a part of a commissioning study, the cooling ceiling system of a large commercial building located in Belgium is evaluated. A representative office has been instrumented and data on the cooling ceiling system operating in real conditions have been collected. The simulation of the whole system is performed by means of a dynamic thermal model of the building and its HVAC system. The model considers the radiant panels as a dynamic-state finned heat exchanger connected to a simplified lumped dynamic model of the building. The behavior of the radiant ceiling system and the interactions with his environment (walls, ventilated façade, internal loads and ventilation system) has been experimentally and numerically evaluated. Commissioning test results show that the influence of surfaces temperatures inside the room, especially the façade, is considerable. Then, it is clear that the radiant ceiling system must be evaluated together with its designed environment and not as separate HVAC equipment. [less ▲]

Nowadays, techniques for real-time interpretation of video scenes are widespread. Amongst these techniques, the foreground segmentation is one of the favorite. It can be applied to color images as well as depth maps. The point of using depth maps is straightforward as a single color camera is not able to provide depth information. Technologies capable to acquire 3D informations are thus adequate to complement color cameras in consumer products. Practice has shown that 3D or RGB signals, taken alone, are unreliable to extract the foreground under arbitrary conditions. Therefore we combine both modalities to counter the intrinsic limitations of both modalities, which is only possible if the problems specific to a technology are handled appropriately. This paper presents a new global approach for enhanced foreground segmentation that handles limitations to 3D and RGB in a combined way. [less ▲]

Dans un premier temps, il expose les facteurs contrôlant l'érosion linéaire et dans un deuxième temps, il génère des cartes prédictives des zones propices au ravinement. [less ▲]

Faculties at the University of Liège, just like so many of their academic colleagues worldwide, have to write and orally present a syllabus for each of their courses every year. Although very demanding, this effort is clearly described by many authors as an important opportunity to make a decisive first impression and to favourably affect students’ attitude and perceptions toward a given course regarding their personal needs and motivation notably. Even if the hypothesis seem plausible and inspiring for practice at first sight, the likelihood of a given syllabus to actually impact those perfection in the right way still has to be experienced. So, for a syllabus whose qualities / characteristics seem to make it likely or not to impact positively or negatively learners’ perceptions of courses linked to their motivation and individual needs, will consistent effects be observed on the ones who have read / heard it? Among the students’ perceptions that an effective syllabus would be likely to positively impact according to the literature, some appear to correspond to the three determining factors of the motivational dynamics’ model from Roland Viau [1997]: the perception of controllability [Bain, 2004; Lang, 2006; Hudd, 2003], the perception of activities value [Wasley, 2008, Hammons & Shock, 1994; Johnson, 2006] and the perception of competency [Slattery & Carlson, 2005; Madson, Melchert, Whipp, 2004]. Other theoretical benefits of the syllabus on students’ attitude refer to the “consideration of what students need in order to be successful learners” [Hess & Whittington, 2003] or the support of “developmental needs of the students” [Haugen, 1998]. Here, items used to check learners’ perceptions and to observe if “the syllabus addresses the question of whether the class will meet student needs” [Birdsall, 1989] have been closely related to the levels of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Chart. In 2008, within its mandatory program of pedagogical training for new faculties, the IFRES (Institute for Training and Research in Higher Education) has created a thematic seminar offering guidelines to promote syllabi aiming notably to motivate students and meet developmental needs. At the beginning of the following academic year, ten syllabi and introduction speeches - meant to Freshmen or Sophomores and designed by ten faculties who followed the seminar - were collected and recorded in order to be analyzed. Their likelihood to impact the targeted students’ perceptions was then rated according to criteria rigorously derived from literature. During the second class of the ten teachers, questionnaires were submitted to their 1300 First/Second-Year students in order to investigate the possible corollary impact of those transmitted pieces of information on their concerned perceptions. In order to measure hypothetical gains due to syllabi, couples of symmetrical pre and post items were included. Data collected from the students concerning their post perceptions and their answers about their reading / hearing or not of their respective syllabi /oral speeches are currently crossed. Chi squares are calculated to identify significant relationships between them, as well as correlations indexes. Afterwards, synoptic tables are produced to observe consistencies between ratings of teachers’ performances and students’ levels of declared perceptions. At this stage, it appears that variables regarding motivation are clearly independent for about 2/3 of the studied relations. Nevertheless, considering the cases where the X²test indicate links between the data, concrete consistencies can be observed between the ratings obtained from the content analysis of syllabi or speeches and the observed percentages of students declaring good perceptions. Besides, the comparison of the percentages of students declaring good perceptions before and after having received syllabi and speeches clearly indicate frequent consistencies with the syllabi’s ratings on the same variables. Looking at the impressive number of universities everywhere asking or urging their teachers to produce syllabi for each of their courses, it seems obvious that this task has become a classic in any faculty’s pedagogical practice. This generalization also seems to indicate a consensus on the fact that this effort make sense and can be useful, particularly for students. This research aims to objectify this usefulness in order to guide and promote professors’ reflection on effective syllabus - for instance in the context of a regulated training seminar -, especially since it is also considered to benefit as planning tool for faculties [Littlefield, 1999; Matejka & Kurke, 1994 ; Sinor & Kaplan], or as permanent record for promotions or program consistency [Parkes & Harris, 2002; Leibow, 2003 ; Seldin, 1998].

Background: Rodents are recognized as hosts for at least 60 zoonotic diseases and may represent a serious threat for human health. In the context of global environmental changes and increasing mobility of humans and animals, contacts between pathogens and potential animal hosts and vectors are modified, amplifying the risk of disease emergence. An accurate identification of each rodent at a specific level is needed to understand their implications in the transmission of diseases. Among Muridae, the Rattini tribe encompasses 167 species inhabiting South East Asia, a hotspot of both biodiversity and, emerging and re-emerging diseases. The region faces growing economical development that affects habitats, biodiversity and health. Rat species have been demonstrated as main hosts of pathogens but are still difficult to recognize at a specific level using morphological criteria. DNA-barcoding methods appear as the only tool for accurate rat species identifications but their usefulness is hampered by the need of reliable identifications of reference specimens. To provide a rigorous systematic framework for epidemiological surveys, we used DNA data to explore the limits of the current taxonomy of the Rattini tribe. Results: As morphological characters are often misleading, we decided to use the DNA sequence information itself as the primary information source to establish group membership and estimate putative species boundaries. We sequenced two mitochondrial and one nuclear genes from 122 rat samples to perform phylogenetic reconstructions and applied the method developed by Pons and colleagues (2006) that determines with no a prior expectations, the locations of ancestral nodes defining putative species. To give an appropriate name to each cluster recognized as a valid species, we reviewed information from the literature and obtained sequences from a museum holotype specimen following all the ancient DNA criteria. One of the most striking results is that at least 6 putative species including a new cryptic one could exist among the Rattus rattus species group. Conclusions: Using a suitable methodology, this study succeeds in refining the taxonomy of one of the most difficult groups of mammals and lays the foundations to better investigate rodent-born diseases in South East Asia. Recognition of a new cryptic Rattus species in Southeast Asia could have serious implications for human health since each species is expected to have its own ecological traits and to carry its own set of diseases. To finish, first results based on independent nuclear DNA data (microsatellite loci) will be briefly exposed to demonstrate that defining species is not an easy task. [less ▲]

Redundant connectivity (or multiconnectivity) between adjacent autonomous systems (ASes) is important for inter-domain traffic engineering and fast recovery in case of failures. However, the redundancy of ASes business relationship links has not been quantitatively studied, mainly due to the difficulty of obtaining relevant data. In this paper, we show that the mrinfo multicast monitoring tool can provide useful data about the Internet topology and such redundant links in particular. Our analysis relies on more than four years of daily queries to about ten thousand routers mapped into more than two hundred ASes. We demonstrate that peering links between ASes are frequently redundant. In particular, our analysis shows that more than half of the studied ASes pairs are connected through multiple physical links. We then refine our analysis by considering the different types of ASes and their business relationships. A particular result of our analysis is that at least 75% of the peer-to-peer relationships between adjacent Tier-1 ASes are redundant, i.e., the con- nections between these ASes involve several physical links. Our analysis is conservative, providing so a lower bound, as some links might not be seen by mrinfo due to ISPs filtering policies. [less ▲]
