The idea of taking into account environmental impact criteria in the process design becomes a necessity for both the industry and governments, due to increased binding regulations. Moreover, to address the issue of integrating sustainable processes, environmental impact must be weighed and balanced against other concerns, such as economic performance, product quality, and long-term sustainability. Therefore, this study introduces a methodology for environmental impact minimization and optimization of multiple conflicting criteria. A general eco-design method for biomass drying process is proposed. The main target is to develop an assessment computer-aided process engineering tool that compares environmental impacts of different operating conditions and fuel types to support decision-makers for an improved compliance to environmental criterion and sustainability. © 2016, Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

The formulation and structure of initial liquid emulsion have an impact on the efficiency of encapsulation (encapsulated oil quantity) in spray dried particles (dried emulsions) and must be adapted to spray drying. Two different protocols were tested varying the concentration of emulsifier (Tween® 20), conditions of homogenization and concentration of wall material (Maltodextrin and Agave Inulin). The concentration of emulsifier and wall material should allow avoiding micelle formation or coalescence. Results show that it was possible to produce stable emulsions with an oil droplet size around 2. μm containing 40% w/w of total dry matter (g/100. g emulsion) using maltodextrin as wall material and 3.5% Tween® 20 (3.5. g/100. g oil) or using Agave Inulin in emulsions with a total dry mater content of 50% w/w (50. g/100. g emulsion) with a minimal concentration of emulsifier (1.17. g/100. g oil). The spray drying of these emulsions produced fine powders (<22. μm) with a monodispersed size distribution and good oil encapsulation efficiency (>88%). © 2015.

3/4 open jet wind tunnels are subjected to undesired low frequency pressure and velocity fluctuations at distinct flow velocities. The aim of this paper is to present recent research done in the full scale automotive aero-acoustic facility of the S2A wind tunnel complex in order to characterise the physical mechanism causing the fluctuations, to clarify their impact on the aerodynamic measurements and to validate solutions that allow high quality aerodynamic and acoustic measurements over the entire velocity range of the wind tunnel. Four areas of significant oscillations have been detected in the full scale S2A wind tunnel for wind velocities between 10 and 60. m/s. Those fluctuations are due to successive lock-ins of the wind speed dependent shear layer instability of the jet, with acoustic resonant frequencies of the wind tunnel. Various solutions have been tested in order to assess their impact on the fluctuations and on the quality of the aerodynamic measurements. A less protruding solution than classical vortex generator has been validated. It is made of two rectangular flaps along the upper edge of the nozzle exit, with a small plunging angle. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

This work focuses on an experimental investigation of flow control of the wake of a 3D bluff body using micro-electro mechanical system (MEMS) pulsed microjets. Results show that a significant drag reduction (up to 10 %) is obtained with micro-jets located upstream the recirculation bubble created over the rear slant of the model. The energy balance obtained with MEMS is also much better than the one obtained with conventional magnetic valves, which makes MEMS technology highly attractive for future industrial applications on flow control. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012.

In this paper we introduce an adapted Constant Modulus Algorithm in order to identify the impulse response of an unknown propagation channel. This algorithm deals with the output of a fourth order moment estimation algorithm of received samples. This paper can be viewed as a follow up of a previous work devoted on blind channel estimation . It will be shown how results obtained in this previous work can be used as an initialization of the proposed adapted CMA, leading to a subsequent performances improvement. © 2015 University of Split, FESB.

This paper highlights steady and unsteady measurements and flow control results obtained on an Ahmed model with slant angle of 25° in wind tunnel. On this high-drag configuration characterized by a large separation bubble along with energetic streamwise vortices, time-averaged and time-dependent results without control are first presented. The influence of rear-end periodic forcing on the drag coefficient is then investigated using electrically operated magnetic valves in an open-loop control scheme. Four distinct configurations of flow control have been tested: rectangular pulsed jets aligned with the spanwise direction or in winglets configuration on the roof end and rectangular jets or a large open slot at the top of the rear slant. For each configuration, the influence of the forcing parameters (non-dimensional frequency, injected momentum) on the drag coefficient has been studied, along with their impact on the static pressure on both the rear slant and vertical base of the model. Depending on the type and location of pulsed jets actuation, the maximum drag reduction is obtained for increasing injected momentum or well-defined optimal pulsation frequencies. © Springer-Verlag 2011.

In the design process of interactive sound walk art installations, the composer must think his sound design in a real or a virtual space according to the listener's promenade. For a given piece, the sound designer leaves to the interactor a certain amount of freedom and to the system, according to its level of self-sufficiency, a certain amount of autonomy. This paper presents an analysis of this fundamental composition choice between determinism, emergence and interactivity. In the first part, this problem is stated as the position of an art piece in the D.I.S. (Designer/Interactor/System) triangle. We analyze from this point of view several interactive pieces. The second part concerns mainly the design process of The Listening Walker scripted version. This interactive sound walk relies on the technology and the design principle of video games. In the scripting style, the designer takes the point of view of the interactor, who becomes the narrator. We conclude by an introduction to the second version of the same piece written according to the emergent style. In this case the designer takes the point of view of Non Player Characters controlled by the system. Copyright: © 2014 First author et al.
