In Belgium, the Boom Clay is being considered as a potential host formation for the disposal of nuclear waste. Part of the safety assessment and feasibility studies of a potential nuclear waste disposal consists of hydrogeological modeling. In order to model the groundwater flow and possible radionuclide transport in the clay, the spatial distribution of the hydraulic conductivity of the clay has to be assessed. In this study, geostatistical methods are used to characterize the hydraulic conductivity field. More specific, direct sequential simulation of the hydraulic conductivity is carried out, using measurements of hydraulic conductivity and 4 types of soft data or secondary variables: resistivity logs, gamma ray logs, grain size measurements and descriptions of the lithology. The primary and secondary information is analyzed with geostatistical tools and combined to generate 100 fields of the hydraulic conductivity of the Boom Clay. Next, each field is input to a groundwater flow model to predict the advective travel time of constituents released from the disposed waste in the Boom Clay to the aquifers surrounding the Boom Clay. Statistical analysis of the ensemble of model predictions results in a predictive distribution for the advective travel time. This distribution reflects the uncertainty of the advective travel time that results from the uncertainty of the spatial distribution of the hydraulic conductivity of the Boom Clay [less ▲]

The SDSS has confirmed the existence of populations of broad absorption line quasars with extreme properties. I will discuss the discovery of redshifted absorption troughs (confirmation of a rotating disk wind?), absorption from FeIII but not FeII (a very large column density of moderately ionized gas?), extremely reddened objects (extinction curves even steeper than that of the SMC), objects with overlapping troughs that remove 90% of the flux below MgII, and two mysterious objects which may or may not be unusual BALs. Implications of these objects for quasar and BAL outflow models will be discussed, along with preliminary results of various followup observations. [less ▲]

Recognition of product quality and conformity supposes the existence of two elements: a users’ requirements document and a certification system for product conformity with this document. The document is generally drawn up by a group representing all the interested parties (public and private users, producers, certification or monitoring bodies, testing laboratories, experts …). Depending on circumstances, the document appears as the norm approved in a certain country or as a normative document (approval guide, technical prescriptions,…) recognised by the various interested parties. The certification body is a public or private body which has the competence, independence and impartiality to certify that a duly identified product conforms to a normative document. The certification body works within a certification system that also includes inspection bodies and testing laboratories. In certain cases, the certification body is approved by a competent national authority. In Belgium, the Ministry of Communication and Infrastructures approves certification or inspection bodies and also testing laboratories for building activities. [less ▲]

Results concerning surface charge characterizations of coagulated dye with an aim to evaluate the predominant destabilization mechanism taking place during colour removal by chemical coagulation are presented. A model wastewater comprising of commercially used dye with a CI “Reactive Red 2” was studied. The effect of the combination coagulant/flocculant on colour removal by filtration and sedimentation was evaluated in terms of progression of sludge surface charge. On that basis, an implications about the predominant colour removal mechanisms have been drawn. On selected sludge samples, floc characterisations in terms of size by laser scattering and shape were performed. The measurement techniques used have encompassed for particle size and Small Angle Light Scattering (SALS) for fractal dimension. [less ▲]

Groundwater analysis strongly depends on the availability of large volumes of high-quality data. Putting all data in a coherent and logical structure supported by a computing environment helps ensure validity and availability and provides a powerful tool for hydrogeological studies. A hydrogeological Geographical Information System (GIS) database that offers facilities for hydrogeological modeling has been designed in Belgium for the Walloon Region. Interest is growing in the potential for integrating GIS technology and groundwater simulation models. A “loose-coupling” tool was created between the spatial database scheme and the groundwater numerical model interface GMS© (Groundwater Modeling System). Following time and spatial queries, the hydrogeological data stored in the database can be easily used within different groundwater numerical models. [less ▲]

In hydrogeology, protection zones of a spring or a pumping well are often delimited by isochrones that are computed using calibrated groundwater flow and transport models. In heterogeneous formations, all direct and indirect data, respectively called hard and soft data, must be used in an optimal way. Approaches involving in situ pumping and tracer tests, combined with geophysical and/or other geological observations, are developed. In a deterministic framework, the calibrated model is considered as the best representation of the reality at the current investigation stage, but result uncertainty remains unquantified. Using stochastic methods, a range of equally likely isochrones can be produced allowing to quantify the influence of our knowledge of the aquifer parameters on protection zone uncertainty. Furthermore, integration of soft data in a conditioned stochastic generation process, possibly associated with an inverse modeling procedure, can reduce the resulting uncertainty. A stochastic methodology for protection zone delineation integrating hydraulic conductivity measurements (hard data), head observations and electrical resistivity data (soft data) is proposed.

The main purpose of this study was to show potential uses of very high resolution (VHR) image in an urban analysis of Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. As for many of the Third-World cities, Bukavu grew up during the last decades and available topographical information on Bukavu dates back to the middle of the twentieth century. This lack of updated information can be compensated by an appropriate use of VHR images. In this study, IKONOS image recorded on the 14th February 2001 was used. Image registration are highly dependant on accurate Digital Elevation Models (DEM), these last ones are also useful in urban analyses. The range between the minimum and maximum altitudes observed in the image was more than 500 meters. Furthermore, the viewing inclination angle is more than 28 degrees. In this case, orthorectification is mandatory for correcting relief displacements. Nevertheless, the lack of good Ground Control Points (GPS’s) on the old topographic maps and the failure to collect field verification data in Bukavu explains the remaining global 2D RMSE of 10 meters. For easier image interpretation, multispectral (4m) and panchromatic (1m) images were fused together by means of the LMVM algorithm. Depending on the object, the Computer Aided Photo Interpretation (CAPI) uses or does not use the near infrared information (true or false colour composite). For a more detailed interpretation about the city morphology we draped the 1m multispectral fused image over the 1m resolution DEM grid. The Built-up Area Index (BAI) computed on the urban mask obtained by CAPI and classification of the vegetation, was compared with the 1954 situation interpreted from topographic maps. The present city shows higher BAI values and in the same time the centre of the city has clearly shifted southward. Statistical analyses are also done on built-up versus slope data. The lack of good GCP’s and the use of DEM produced inaccurate orthorectification which was not adequate for topographical features extraction. Nevertheless the present extensions of Bukavu built-up areas are more than the double of those observed at the beginning of the last half century. New constructions are located on steeper slopes where landslides are frequents. More features could be extracted from the Ikonos image if good GPS measurements were made and if verification by the city authorities was possible. Some practical applications of this study could involve determining better location of new Bukavu extensions. [less ▲]

Dans le cas du théâtre, les données codicologiques (qualité des supports, ajouts marginaux, ratures, présence de notation musicale, de didascalies rubriquées…) sont à considérer en tenant compte de la fonction pratique des mss et du rapport des textes à la scène. L’enquête codicologique éclaire donc l’activité dramatique dans son ensemble (de l’écriture des textes à la conception du spectacle), et ses résultats s’insèrent dans une réflexion plus générale sur le statut littéraire du texte de théâtre occitan au Moyen Âge.

Since the late 1960s, The Sahel of West Africa is affected by a long-term drought and increasing human pressure on the environment leading to desertification processes. The Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), calculated from satellite imagery, is a reliable index of the vegetation status as the vegetation response to rainfall is very strong in semiarid environments. This article presents the NDVI and rainfall evolution from 1981 to 1999 in nine locations along a north-south transect from north-western Niger to north-eastern Benin. These two parameters are then statistically analysed to identify breaks in the trends within the datasets. Over the 19 years analysed, it appears that five out of the nine locations have recorded a significant increase of rainfall, while only two presented a significant increase in NDVI. This dichotomy in observed trends may highlight the on-going slow processes of environmental degradation. [less ▲]

Original free-surface flow solvers have been developed by the HACH during the last years. The resulting fully integrated WOLF package allows engineers to study a very wide range of free surface flows situations. Successful and accurate computations are performed for phenomena as various as hydrological run-offs and dam breaking in quasi 3 dimensions including solid transport effects, as well as rivers networks modelling with explicit exchanges between river paths. All the models, physically based, use efficient and original numerical methods to solve continuous or discontinuous free-surface flow equations. They handle structured or unstructured grids with both first and second order accurate explicit or implicit algorithms in time and space. WOLF also includes powerful user-friendly pre- and post-processing with 2D and 3D animated visualizations as well as a parameters optimization software interconnected with all the package components and based on the innovating method of genetic algorithms. In this paper, the production of the hydroelectric power plants installed on a 60 km long section of the rivers Amblève and Warche in Belgium is presented in details to illustrate the numerical calculation and optimization process. The river network is modeled using real natural topographic data. Hydrological balance is closed and roughness coefficients are calibrated from water level and discharge field measurements. Hydroelectric production is optimized by an automatic calibration of the parameters of the hydrogram injected in the network from the Robertville dam. This approach leads to a substantial gain in both hydroelectric production and financial benefits and deals with all management and security criteria. [less ▲]

This paper presents the results of the investigation of the biological activity that takes place in three municipal solid waste landfills (MSW landfills) situated in different regions of two dry climate in Tunisia. Since the climatic water balance is negative (potential evapotranspiration being 1.5 to 5 times higher than rainfall), it has often been considered that this kind of landfill has neither environmental impact nor efficient biological activity. However, the three landfills revealed a biological activity with biogas often containing more than 60 percent of methane. Indeed, the upper waste layer that was effectively dry (dry weight from 85 to 98%), the core of refuse contained between 35 and 65% of dry matter. In some boreholes, the produced gases periodically expelled leachates like small geysers. Therefore, the results assess that landfill management in countries with dry climate should be considered with adapted technologies, not necessary the same as under temperate or humid climates.

Aerated flow over stepped chutes is principally studied on laboratory models. Consequently, the obtained design relations have a limited field of application. In order to propose a more general description of the flow, a quasi-2D numerical model is developed. The fluid is considered as an air-water mixture governed by the shallow-water equations. Moreover, a transport equation for air concentration represents the self-aeration of the flow and a coefficient of uneven vertical velocity distribution integrates indirectly the turbulent structures. The paper includes a brief description of the flow behaviour, the quasi-2D model equations, and a comparison of the numerical results with the measured flow characteristics in a 30° stepped flume.

We present preliminary results from observations of the massive WR+O binary WR 22 performed with the XMM observatory. The star is brighter in the X-ray domain near apastron and fainter at periastron. The change in brightness is very progressive and mainly corresponds to a lowering of the soft part of the spectrum. [less ▲]

Abstract: Different types of landslides known or assumed to have been triggered by a specific earthquake were investigated at different places in the Tien Shan (Central Asia).

This paper presents a method to sort Jonagold apples using a four bands multi-spectral image acquisition device. Multi-spectral images of sound tissue and various defects were acquired. Defects could be divided into four classes: slight defects (e.g. small russet), more serious defects (scar tissue), defects leading to the rejection of the fruit (e.g. rot) and recent bruises (between one hour and two hours old). Image segmentation was based on the Bayes' theorem. Each pixel of the fruit was classified into 'healthy' or 'defect' classes according to the probability distribution of the spectral components of each class. Once segmented, the fruit was graded by linear discriminant analysis on the basis of the relative area of the defect and statistical parameters computed on the spectral components of the two tissues classes. Results (cross validation) showed 94% and 84% if the sound and defective fruits respectively well classified. Most of the misclassified defective fruits (89%) belonged to the slight defect category.

Coatings are designed to protect concrete against environmental aggression. Water is one of the aggressive parameters able to deteriorate the concrete structure. The objectives of this paper are to present the effects of water (i) during application of coating on the concrete substrate and (ii) pull-off test. Semi-permanent moisty state produced by absorption from the uncoated face, total immersion or diffusion of water from the back face of the substrate are analysed. Water vapour diffusion and influence of hydrophobic treatment are also investigated. A classification based on increasing influence of the tests and application conditions on adhesion is proposed and clearly points out the negative effect of capillary action from the uncoated face.

The clinching process, also known as “press joining”, is a mechanical joining technique for sheet metal. Its basic principle is to clamp together several metal sheets by an impact extrusion between a punch and a die. The joint is formed by a localized cold plastic deformation. Forming is used as a joining method. Within the context of this research, University of Liège is developing numerical models, with the FEM code LAGAMINE, that simulate the clinching process. On the other hand, shear tests on simple joints with one or two clinches were realized and their behaviour is reproduced numerically with LAGAMINE. This work opens the way to the analytical formulation of the behaviour of clinched joints. The article will focus on comparisons between experiments and numerical simulations. First, the identification of model parameters will be explained. Then, the predicted failure modes will be analysed by comparison with the xperiments. [less ▲]

This paper presents the numerical simulation of a cyclic simple shear test. The blank tested is a high strength steel sheet for which we use three different constitutive plastic laws derived from Teodosiu's model. These laws take into account respectively isotropic, kinematic and mixed isotropic-kinematic hardening. The goal of the paper is to provide a first numerical idea of the stress-strain path in the center of an experimental test sample. [less ▲]

This paper describes the implementation of an online transient stability assessment software, composed of algorithms for contingency screening and for the design of preventive control actions. The implementation of the two parts rely on a hybrid method called SIME, coupled with a time domain simulation engine and power flow program. The speed up of the contingency screening module is obtained by distributing contingencies on a cluster of computers to comply with extended real-time speed requirements. A compensation scheme is used to determine active power rescheduling alternatives in order to stabilize the dangerous contingencies identified at the screening step. The software has been coupled with an industrial EMS platform, and tested in the simulation environment. [less ▲]
