Entre 1978 et 2013, Günter Grass a réuni ses traducteurs autour de chacun de ses romans pour qu’ils puissent discuter avec lui et entre eux des problèmes de traduction. L’expérience fascine, mais elle pose aussi de nombreuses questions. A partir de correspondances, de protocoles et d’enregistrements conservés aux archives et de comparaisons entre l’original de Günter Grass et plusieurs traductions, il a été possible non seulement de retracer le processus, mais aussi d’en évaluer le résultat, pour ainsi mieux cerner les enjeux multiples liés à ces séminaires de traducteurs. A côté de leur finalité avouée (l’amélioration de la qualité des traductions), ils participent à un système de contrôle plus large et contribuent à légitimer les traductions et à en faire la publicité, mais ils ont aussi pour effet de créer une dynamique entre les traducteurs et de leur donner davantage de visibilité.

This paper aims to analyze if the BRICS New Development Bank (BDB) can be understood as a shift in the international governance and financial structure as a genuine tool of development assistance from rising powers or as a tool to forseak strategic national interests. This paper focuses on China; Is the establishment of the BRICS New Development Bank a tool for China to propose an alternative to the Western hegemony? The discussion is based on Robert Cox’s neo-gramscian theory to analyze the BDB’s material capabilities, institutions and ideas. [less ▲]

In this paper, we propose a conceptual data model that could be the basis for future implementations of databases and digital corpuses of Ancient Egyptian texts that fully integrate the material dimensions of writing. The types of metadata that can be used for documenting the elements and relationships of this model are discussed and the resources (URIs) available for its online implementation (in the perspective of the ‘linked open data’ movement) are examined.

Le carré-moyen non-pondéré U comme indice de détection (unweighted mean square statistics) (Wright & Stone, 1979) et sa version standardisée ZU (Wright, 1980) sont parmi les indices de détection de patrons de réponse inappropriés paramétriques les plus connus. On retrouve l’un et/ou l’autre de ces indices dans des logiciels commerciaux ou gratuits tels que RUMM2030, FACETS ou la librairie R eRm en plus d’en faire mention dans les articles les plus cités sur le sujet (Karabatsos, 2003; Meijer et Sijtsma, 2001). Durant les dernières décennies, quelques voix se sont élevées afin de sensibiliser les utilisateurs aux problèmes que présentent U et ZU (Karabatsos, 2000; Smith, 1991). Ils semblent, en effet, présenter des scores extrêmes qui rendraient leur utilisation inadéquate dans certaines situations. Cette présentation aura comme objectif d’étudier les limites des indices U et ZU. Nous utiliserons une étude de simulation et différents modèles de réponses à l’item dichotomiques afin de soutenir notre propos. Les auteurs de l’étude concluront leur présentation en discutant de l’importance de manipuler ces indices avec précaution. [less ▲]

Agricultural spray characteristics determine the efficiency of a pesticide application because size and velocity affect droplet trajectory and impact behavior. At present, the relevance of different characterization techniques remains controversial since discrepancies may be significant between measurements performed in different laboratories. A digital image acquisition technique and analysis algorithm is proposed for droplet size and velocimetry measurements as an alternative to well-established techniques such as the Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer (PDPA) or laser diffraction spectrometry (LDS). The algorithm requires double exposed shadow images acquired in a back-lighted arrangement with a Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) camera and a pulsed light emitting diode (LED). Spatial illumination heterogeneities are corrected by subtracting from each image a mean background acquired on several images without any particle. The algorithm accuracy is ensured by the rejection of out-of-focus particles using a focus parameter depending on gradient intensity at the particle edges. Thresholds for focus particle selection were determined by studying the evolution of the focus parameter and the error on particle size measurements from images containing droplets with uniform size at various distance of the object plane. Selected droplets were identified on both pairs of images to determine their size and velocity. Droplet size distributions were corrected to account for the uneven sampling probability caused by the volumetric method. Droplet size distributions of a set of reference nozzle/pressure combinations defined in the ISO/DIS 25358 were measured. The image technique was able to distinguish each of the reference sprays well. Comparison with PDPA measurements showed that the imaging technique tends to measure an equivalent Dv50, a lower Dv10 and a higher Dv90 leading therefore to a higher relative span factor. Velocity measurements showed good agreement between both techniques except for one nozzle/pressure combination. [less ▲]

Belgium has fifteen structures included in the list of large dams of the International Committee on Large Dams. Six are managed by Engie Company, the other nine are owned by the Walloon regional public authority. The Belgian legislator has never enacted specific rules for large dams. However, managers have always been concerned with this issue. They developed procedures and methods that were subject to exchanges of experience with their counterparts, in particular through the Belgian Committee on Large Dams. In this ongoing research of security, the impact of multiple failure scenarios (dam break, quick emptying …) on the people and the environment downstream of dams is a particular focal point. An impact study has been conducted for the main plants. This study is based on a deterministic numerical method. The methodology, the assumptions regarding the failure mode or emptying and the lessons learned from the analyses are presented. These results are an important step in the assessment and the management of risks. Indeed, regulations were recently enacted for the management and the coordination of any activity likely to seriously impact public safety during crisis periods. These rules apply therefore for large dams. In this context, managers have established an emergency plan for each structure. This paper provides a broad overview on the issues of the evaluation and the management of dysfunction risks of Belgian dams, as well as on approaches and collaborations initiated between the private managers and public authority.

The European system for fire testing and classification of loadbearing building elements lacks consistency because the two standards that have to be applied prescribe different criteria for assessing the loadbearing performance. This article analyzes the implications of the present conflict between the standard for testing and the standard for classification. The prescribed criteria for loadbearing performance are related to the exceedance of deflection and rate of deflection thresholds. A database of 46 fire resistance tests performed at the University of Liege is collected that contains the time at which these thresholds are reached in fire tests with different typologies of elements (walls, floors, columns and beams). Then, the loadbearing performance (and hence the fire resistance rating) can be derived according to the two standards. The evolutions of deflection and rate of deflection during the tests are also analyzed to gain a better understanding of the adequacy of the standards. The selection of one or the other standard affects the time at which “failure” is deemed to occur in fire tests. Statistically speaking, the difference in terms of failure time that results from using one or the other standard has a 25% probability to exceed 10%. In certain cases, this results in a difference in fire resistance rating; this was observed for 3 of the analyzed tests. The apparent contradiction in two codes in application has potential practical implications and therefore needs to be solved. The article suggests some guidelines for defining homogenized and consistent criteria. [less ▲]
