Le présent article analyse les facteurs que les producteurs intègrent aux processus de prise de décisions du choix des cultures et de l’utilisation des produits chimiques de synthèse (PCS) à Dridji, commune de Djidja et les logiques sous tendant ces choix. Les données, collectées auprès de 74 personnes grâce à des entretiens semi et non structurés, d’observations participantes et directes ont été soumises à des analyses de perception et des analyses quantitatives grâce aux outils de la statistique descriptive. Il ressort de l’étude que la décision du choix des cultures est prise par le chef ménage et est déterminée par les objectifs du ménage, les résultats de la campagne antérieure, les caractéristiques des cultures, la disponibilité en main d’œuvre et en PCS, la maîtrise de l’itinéraire technique des cultures. Près de 60% des chefs ménages associent plus leurs épouses que les actifs agricoles à cette décision du fait qu’au sein des ménages (près de 72%), les actifs agricoles sont en majorité des apprenants et donc plus occupés par leur formation le temps que dure celle-ci. Quant à l’utilisation des PCS, elle est déterminée par le type de culture, la connaissance d’alternatives efficaces de lutte contre les ravageurs, la connaissance des effets des PCS sur la santé humaine. Si cette décision est prise par le chef ménage et implique les actifs, elle n’est mise en œuvre que par les hommes bien conscients des dangers liés aux PCS sur l’environnement et la santé humaine.

The report presents the results of a research project and the impact of incorrect design on tensile strength values. According to results of laboratory experiments and modelling, it can be observed that, if there is an influence of 2° and 4° angle of inclination on pull-off bond strength, it is however not statistically significant: the decrease of pull-off strength is usually no larger than 14% for 4°.

Dans le cadre du mémoire de fin d'études sur l'église Saint-Vincent, des recherches documentaires ont été effectuées afin de comprendre les volontés de l'architecte, le système structurel en place, ou encore les modifications apportées depuis la construction. Il est effectivement important d'approcher le bâtiment, avant de chercher ses éventuels défauts ou dégâts. Une inspection visuelle, nécessitant plusieurs visites du bâtiment, a permis de lister les dégradations, à l'aide d'un mètre et d'un appareil photo. Celles-ci concernent des problèmes liés au béton (fissures, épaufrures, traces de corrosion, … ), des problèmes structurels (fissures dans les éléments structurels et en façade) ou des problèmes de types divers (humidité, … ). Pour chacune des dégradations observées, les origines possibles ont été formulées. Ensuite, des sesais ou des examens visuels approfondis, nécessaires à l'identification de l'origine exacte des dégâts, ont été proposés. L'utilisation du radar a permis de préciser l'origine de certaines dégradations décrites dans le mémoire. Elle a également été utile pour rechercher la composition des parois, en comparant les radargrammes aux informations fournies par les prélèvements effectués en façade. Les premiers échantillons, prélevés au niveau du rez-de-chaussée, ont fait l'objet d'essais visant à caractériser les matériaux présents : test à la phénolphtaléine, mesure de l'absorption d'eau, mesure de la résistance en compression et en traction. Des analyses physiques et chimiques, suivies d'observations au microscope d'échantillons rélevés en façade ouest, ont par ailleurs permis de caractériser la Pierre armée Pauchot. [less ▲]

This paper shows how general productivity in the schematic Copular Construction for the verbs become (‘become’, developed from an original sense ‘arrive’) and wax (‘become’, from an original sense ‘grow’) abruptly followed when a pre-copular stage had reached a threshold value. It is argued that the presence of such a threshold itself, or the abrupt switch to general productivity rather than a gradual increase in productivity, results from the fact that the Copular Constructions featuring become and wax are not the end result of a single diachronic lineage of constructions, but that this switch has to be seen as the result of an interaction between lineages of constructions, which belong to two groups: (i) constructions involving a certain lexeme, which gradually change and interact with each other; (ii) constructions involving already existing copulas, notably weorðan ‘become’, which provided a template of general productivity upon which the newly emerging copulas could graft. The paper also contributes to the diachronic research on the largely ignored area of copulas denoting change of state, and in effect provides the first analysis of the development of become, which is surprising given its importance in the English language.

We discuss the use of Bayesian P-spline and of the composite link model to estimate survival functions and hazard-ratios from interval-censored data. If one further assumes proportionality of the hazards, the proposed strategy provides a smoothed estimate of the baseline hazard along with estimates of global covariate effects. The frequentist properties of our Bayesian estimators are assessed by an extensive simulation study. We further illustrate the methodology by three examples showing that the proportionality of the hazards might also be found inappropriate from interval-censored data. [less ▲]

The paper provides a perspective on the development of the Belgian disability insurance system. Using both survey and administrative data, it sketches a picture of the (changing) factors leading towards disability, as well as the outcomes in terms of program participation. The paper shows the key role of integrating other forms of early retirement programs into the analysis. The main findings are an unspectacular trend in the number of DI beneficiaries over time combined with a strong expansion of (early-) retirement schemes. [less ▲]

This paper analyzes the effect of retirement on cognitive functioning using two large scale surveys. On the one hand the HRS, a longitudinal survey among individuals aged 50+ living in the United States, allows us to control for individual heterogeneity and endogeneity of the retirement decision by using the eligibility age for Social Security as an instrument. On the other hand, a comparable international European survey, SHARE, allows us to identify the causal effect of retirement on cognitive functioning by using the cross-country differences in the age-pattern of retirement. The results highlight in both cases a significant negative, and quantitatively comparable, effect of retirement on cognitive functioning. Our results suggest that promoting labor force participation of older workers is not only desirable to insure the viability of retirement schemes, but it could also delay cognitive decline, and thus the occurrence of associated impairments at older age.

A. Context One of the objectives of the European Construction Products Directive (CPD) is to harmonize the technical specifications with regard to dangerous substances and construction materials. Construction products could emit or contain dangerous substances that have been defined as dangerous substances under Commission directives and national regulations. In the future construction products may only be placed on the market in the European Union if they accord with the (second generation) harmonized technical specifications including health aspects and bear the CE mark. B. Objectives The goal of this research project is to improve the flow of knowledge and information vis-à-vis normalisation activities in the domain of indoor air measurements, indoor product emission testing, labeling and certification by proposing an evaluation method and standardized assessment methods for a harmonized approach relating to emissions from building materials into indoor air for implementation in Belgium. This approach will comply with current European harmonizing efforts ongoing on European level. C. Conclusions  International tendencies as well as national developments indicate the growing importance of building material emission testing  Harmonisation of governmental schemes to assess volatile organic emissions in the context of the CPD is necessary to obtain transparency  The topic of different limit values in different countries is a difficult problem to solve  It was demonstrated that it is possible with alternative methods (µ-chamber and FLEC) to achieve a qualitative and quantitative correlation with the reference method. However there is a need to extend this comparative study to more materials  The important influence of the quantification procedure on the emission results was demonstrated  The possiblity to investigate microbial resistance of building materials with the so called µ-chamber technique was demonstrated  A twofold methodology for the odour determination of building materials was developed: a quantitative method based on intensity and a qualitative method based on hedonic scale. Furthermore the basis for the development of an electronic nose specific for evaluation of building materials was laid down  A possible evaluation scheme for Belgium on the basis of AFSSET/AgBB/prEN15052 was proposed with two modifications: - Time path modification (7 or 10 days) - Prescreening with alternative method (< 20 L) D. Contribution of the project in a context of scientific support to transfer of knowledge and innovation This research project for implementation of the essential requirement “Hygiene, health and the environment” of the Construction Products Directive has besides its informative and sensitizing role also performed a supporting role in the development of new innovative low emission construction products. The research project has also ensured a Belgian input in the validation work of the draft standard "Emissions into indoor air" - WI 351009 - Construction products - Assessment of emissions of regulated dangerous substances from construction products - Determination of emissions into indoor air” in development in working group 2 of CEN/TC 351. Furthermore this research project has lead to the development of new innovative test methods tailored to the specific needs of construction products. [less ▲]

In a first chapter, fundamental notions of kinematics and statics of continua are exposed. Constitutive loads are treated in the second chapter. In the frame of thermodynamics, with the local equilibrium hypothesis, the fundamental laws of thermoelasticity are easily obtained. The extreme cases of isothermic and adiabatic deformations are also considered and compared. The third chapter presents a somewhat unexpected application of the above theory, that is the damping due to thermoconduction. [less ▲]

Global Monitoring for Food Security (GMFS) is a Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) Service Element (GSE) project, part of the European Space Agency (ESA) contribution to the European Union (EU) /ESA GMES Programme. GMFS aims to establish an operational service for crop monitoring in support of Food Security Monitoring to serve policy makers and operational users. The GMFS project started in March 2003 as part of Stage 1 of the ESA Earthwatch GMES services Element “Service Consolidation Actions”, and was continued in October 2005 as part of the Stage 2 of the ESA Earth watch GMES services Element – “Scaling Up Consolidated GMES Services”. In this document an overview is given of the work done throughout the previous six years. GMFS aimed at monitoring crop state /vegetation condition at continental and national scale. Low resolution Earth Observation (EO) data was used for monitoring purposes at continental scale, while at national scale products were based upon medium and high resolution data, field work and agro-meteorological models. The project was guided by a project strategy group with members from the United States Agency for International Development - Famine Early Warning System Network (USAID-FEWSNET), Directorate General for Development (DG-DEV), Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research - International Wheat Improvement Center (CGIAR-CIMMYT), European Commission Joint Research Center (EC-JRC), United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO). The goal of the project in Stage 1 (March 2003 –November 2004) was to consolidate an early warning system for food security. This started off by an intensive literature review and setting up an initial service for the Centre de Suivi Ecologique (CSE) in Dakar Senegal. In the second Phase of Stage 1 activities focussed more on the actual service delivery and setting up activities with users. Those activities included the monitoring agricultural production for Senegal, monitoring agriculture in Malawi and giving support to the Crop and Food Supply Assessment Mission (CFSAM) of FAO /WFP. Additionally, services were set up for the centre Agro-Hydro-Météorologique (AGRHYMET) as a result of a meeting between AGHRYMET and Vlaamse Instelling voor Technologisch Onderzoek (VITO). During 2005 the early warning service was continued to support GMFS users although there was at that time no formal contract to do so. At the start of the Second Stage, in October 2005, a GMFS user executive board, consisting of one representative from: EC-JRC, FAO, WFP, Southern Africa Development Community Regional Remote Sensing Unit (SADC-RRSU), Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) and AGRHYMET, was set up to support the consortium in defining the correct services and to review the work. Since the focus for the Second Stage was on up scaling the consolidated services, it was decided that the early warning service and support to the CFSAM were to be continued, the agricultural mapping service was to be expanded to more countries - namely, Senegal, Sudan, Ethiopia, Malawi and Zimbabwe - and extra services on yield modeling using remote sensing and agro-meteorological models were to be provided. During the second year of this stage, the services were even more extended with, support to the Ministry of Agriculture and Meteorological Department in Mozambique, extra activities in Ethiopia and Sudan and support to the regional centers on operational use of the ESA Data Dissemination System (DDS).

Depuis 2007, l’Aquapôle appuie l’Agence Nationale de Protection de l’Environnement (ANPE - Tunisie) dans sa mission de contrôle de la pollution des eaux par la mise en place d’un réseau de contrôle de la pollution des eaux (projet LIFE Pays Tiers COPEAU 2007- 10). Les données ainsi collectées pourraient être utilement exploitées au travers de l’utilisation de modèles de gestion des ressources en eau. Le modèle PEGASE développé par l’Aquapôle, permet d’établir la relation pression / impact entre les différentes charges de pollution et la qualité de l’eau dans tout le réseau des rivières modélisées associées au bassin versant concerné, et constitue ainsi un puissant outil de gestion des cours d’eau et de leurs bassins versants. Il permet notamment de simuler le transport des polluants et différents scénarios de gestion (planification de l’épuration et de l’assainissement, réduction des pressions, mise aux normes des rejets,…) et d’en déterminer les impacts (gain de qualité) sur l’écosystème. Ce modèle est déjà largement utilisé dans plusieurs pays européens (Belgique, France, Pays-Bas, Allemagne, Luxembourg). La présente étude intitulée « étude de faisabilité d’une méthodologie de modélisation à l’échelle globale du bassin versant de la Medjerda (Tunisie) » a été réalisée entre juin 2008 et décembre 2009 au travers du partenariat entre l’Aquapôle et l’ANPE et ce, avec l’appui de Wallonie Bruxelles International (commission mixte 2008). L’étude dresse un bilan des données disponibles et analyse leur pertinence eu égard de ce qui est requis pour permettre la bonne application du modèle PEGASE à l’ensemble du bassin versant tunisien de la Medjerda. Il s’agit de données géographiques (MNT, réseau hydrographique, limites administratives, occupation des sols etc.), météorologiques (insolation, température, débits), de rejets (domestiques, industriels, STEP, cheptel) et de mesure de qualité. L’étude dresse également un bilan des problématiques spécifiques dont il faudra nécessairement tenir compte dans l’adaptation du modèle au contexte local. Celles-ci concernent principalement la présence de 9 grands barrages implantés le long de la Mejerda et de ses affluents, la forte anthropisation du débit liée notamment aux lâchés de barrages, le caractère intermittent de certains affluents en fonction des périodes de l’année, la présence de prélèvements très importants notamment pour l’irrigation et enfin, des problèmes de crues et d’érosion. En conclusion, l’analyse des échantillons de données transmises par l’ANPE et des problématiques spécifiques aux régions du Nord de la Tunisie montre que le modèle PEGASE est tout à fait applicable au bassin de la Medjerda, moyennant certaines adaptions spécifiques. Cet outil de gestion a toute sa raison d’être dans ce pays où la préservation des ressources en eau constitue un enjeu vital pour les générations actuelles et futures. [less ▲]
