In the wake of financial and economic crises, the European Union took unprecedented steps to build an institutional framework accompanying financial market governance. This chapter will outline the EU law techniques used to integrate Member States’ interests in the set-up and functioning of that framework. Following a brief overview and recapitulation of the ‘more Europe’ developments having taken shape in the wake of crisis, the chapter will proceed in summarising how Member States’ interests have been embedded directly within the post-crisis EU regulation framework. It will be submitted that two different and complementary kinds of ‘interest inclusion’ techniques can be distilled, more or less explicitly, within the newly created financial market supervision frameworks. The inclusion and presumed safeguarding of Member States’ interests by virtue of administrative law tools is not entirely unproblematic. The final section of the chapter highlights challenges associated with such interest-inclusion approach and questions whether the a modest way forward in an attempt better to legitimate the current interest inclusion techniques by the EU institutions.

The paper explores the interaction between different kinds of social agents in the funding and management of cult foundations for the dead in the late-classical and Hellenistic period. Textual and archaeological dossiers will be discussed in order to 1) investigate the occupation of sacred space in existing sanctuaries and other public spaces as well as the creation of new sacred places, specifically meant to host ritual practice for dead individuals or groups; 2) provide a comparative analysis of the patterns of establishment, funding and management of cult foundations pertaining to civic, royal, individual or groups' initiatives; 3) explore the forms of interaction between various agents involved, e.g. between civic and private initiative in funding and management. When possible, these considerations will also be integrated with an evaluation of the religious status attributed to the honoured persons, with particular attention to the semantic fields of heroization and deification. Thus an attempt will be made at tracking down possible general trends of religious administration beyond local particularities, and at schematizing these configurations in a model taking into account four factors: the social status of ritual agents and recipients; the religious status acknowledged to cult recipients; the methods of funding and management; the degree of monumentalization and social impact of the cult foundations.

Structural fire engineering has long relied on a prescriptive approach based on isolated member behavior under continuously heating standard fire. By definition, this approach does not allow comprehending the effects of interaction between members of a complete structure nor the effects of real fire exposure. Yet, such effects can have a significant influence on the response of real buildings to fire. Notably, when a structure has survived a fully developed fire, the cooling phase that inevitably follows generates effects that may endanger the structure stability. This has been attested by real structural collapses and poses a specific threat to firefighters. However, the behavior of structures under natural fire and the causes of failure during cooling are still not well understood. This research investigates the response of steel-framed structures to natural fires with the aim to analyze the possible collapse mechanisms during cooling. Numerical simulations by nonlinear finite element method are conducted for different fire scenarios and structural designs. The simulations model the thermo-mechanical behavior of the frames accounting for the interaction between members during the entire fire duration until burnout. Different collapse mechanisms during cooling are highlighted and discussed, including connection failure and progressive collapse under localized fire. In the latter case, collapse of members not directly affected by the fire occurs during the cooling phase. These mechanisms result from a complex combination of several factors, such as the recovery of thermal elongation, the recovery of stiffness, and the prior development of permanent strains in the heated members. The results show that steel-framed structures are subject to collapse during the cooling phase of natural fires. Therefore, natural fires with heating-cooling sequences represent a loading case that should be considered in structural fire analyses and could lead to specific design provisions to prevent the occurrence of collapse during cooling.

This paper aims at shedding light on a rather neglected corpus, the so-called ‘Reden und Rufe’. In this regard, I focus on the question of their identity as a literary genre. In seeking to define the identity of a literary genre, I first consider the structuralist approach of G. Genette and its possible applications to Ancient Egyptian texts (sections 1-2). In a second step, I apply his three criteria (modes, themes, and forms) to a workable sample of Reden und Rufe, in Old and Middle Kingdom private tombs, after having discussed the previous studies on the subject and the corpus dynamicity (section 3). I eventually offer a characterization of the Reden und Rufe, which appear to be subject to adaptations, either insertion in new kinds of ‘daily-life’ scenes or inception of a new literary genre, the harpist songs.

We report a data-set of CO2, CH4, and N2O concentrations in the surface waters of the Meuse river network in Belgium, obtained during four surveys covering 50 stations (summer 2013 and late winter 2013, 2014 and 2015), from yearly cycles in four rivers of variable size and catchment land cover, and from 111 groundwater samples. Surface waters of the Meuse river network were over-saturated in CO2, CH4, N2O with respect to atmospheric equilibrium, acting as sources of these greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, although the dissolved gases also showed marked seasonal and spatial variations. Seasonal variations were related to changes in freshwater discharge following the hydrological cycle, with highest concentrations of CO2, CH4, N2O during low water owing to a longer water residence time and lower currents (i.e. lower gas transfer velocities), both contributing to the accumulation of gases in the water column, combined with higher temperatures favourable to microbial processes. Inter-annual differences of discharge also led to differences in CH4 and N2O that were higher in years with prolonged low water periods. Spatial variations were mostly due to differences in land cover over the catchments, with systems dominated by agriculture (croplands and pastures) having higher CO2, CH4, N2O levels than forested systems. This seemed to be related to higher levels of dissolved and particulate organic matter, as well as dissolved inorganic nitrogen in agriculture dominated systems compared to forested ones. Groundwater had very low CH4 concentrations in the shallow and unconfined aquifers (mostly fractured limestones) of the Meuse basin, hence, should not contribute significantly to the high CH4 levels in surface riverine waters. Owing to high dissolved concentrations, groundwater could potentially transfer important quantities of CO2 and N2O to surface waters of the Meuse basin, although this hypothesis remains to be tested.

Zinc was coupled with titanium dioxide using different methods. SiO2 and Zn-SiO2 doped TiO2 films, on the one hand, and Zn doped TiO2 on the other hand, have been produced using controlled sol-gel processes by alcoholic, cogelation and aqueous ways. From these syntheses, films were deposited on soda lime glass. These samples were compared to ZnO samples but also to bilayer samples constituting one layer of TiO2 and one layer of ZnO. The physico-chemical properties of the films were characterized by grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction, profilometry and UV-Vis absorption analyses. The photocatalytic activity has been evaluated from the degradation of methylene blue under UV-A light, from the degradation of p-nitrophenol under visible light and from the degradation of H2O2 under halogen light (UV-A + visible light). Superhydrophilicity was evaluated from contact angle measurement after UV exposition and also from hysteresis effects. Finally, a haze measurement was performed to evaluate the impact of the coating on the aesthetic property of the coated glass. Aqueous films have better photocatalytic activity and superhydrophilicity than samples from alcoholic synthesis. The crystallization of the sample appears to be one key factor: alcoholic films required calcination to ensure the crystallization of TiO2, but the alkali migration from the glass support prevents this crystallisation, while aqueous synthesis promotes crystallized particles at low temperatures without alkali interference. It appears that the relative activity from one sample to another depends on the nature of the illumination and on the nature of the molecule to be degraded. Nevertheless, the sample with ZnO layer deposited on first TiO2 layer (ZnO 500 Alc/TiO2 100 AQ) composite is found to be the best sample, maintaining a high hydrophilicity similar to TiO2 and a good activity.

We present an implementation of a multifractal formalism based on the Sν spaces and show that it effectively gives the right Hölder spectrum in numerous cases. In particular, it allows to recover non-concave spectra, where other multifractal formalisms only lead to the concave hull of the spectra. [less ▲]
