The identification of kinetic parameters controlling the crosslinking of Diglycidyl ether of bisphenol/isophorone diamine reactive system was achieved via optimization program (Inverse method) based on Fourier transform near infrared spectroscopy results. The reactivity ratio (k2/k 1) was determined using a new method based on the variation of amine conversion ratio versus epoxy conversion ratio. Gelation and vitrification of the reactive system were also analyzed. Time, temperature, transformation diagram was established to assess the rotational molding of this reactive system. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Experimental investigations on flax and glass fabrics reinforced epoxy specimens, i.e. FFRE and GFRE, submitted to fatigue tests are presented in this paper. Samples having [0/90] 3S and [±45] 3S stacking sequences, with similar fibre volume fractions have been tested under tension-tension fatigue loading. The specific stress-number of cycles to failure (S-N) curves, show that for the [0/90] 3S specimens, FFRE have lower fatigue endurance than GFRE, but the [±45] 3S FFRE specimens offer better specific fatigue endurance than similar GFRE, in the studied life range (<2×10 6). Overall, the three-stage stiffness degradation is observed in all cases except for [0/90] 3S FFRE specimens, which present a stiffening phenomenon of around 2-3% which could be related to the straightening of the microfibrils. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

To reduce production costs and to improve performances of hot rolled products, an optimization of the production line is required. The rolling mill is one of the most influent steps on the internal quality of produced parts. In fact the process tends to reduce the size of defects during the strain. The production line composed by 24 stands has been implemented in a commercial simulation tool named FORGE®. First, a model has been developed and adjusted according to the industrial data. Then a parametric study was carried out in order to evaluate the influence of the process parameters on the internal quality of the rolled material. © (2015) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

In the upstream we place a piece of ring and rotate it with 83Hz, 166Hz, 333Hz,and 666H to find the effect of the periodic distortion.In the experiment this type of the perturbation will not allow since the mechanical failure of any parts of the equipment in the upstream will destroy the blade system. This type of study will be only possible by CFD. We use two pumps NS32 (ENSAM) and three blades pump (Tamagawa Univ). The benchmark computations were performed without perturbation parts, and confirm the computational results well agreement in head-flow rate. We obtained the pressure fluctuation growth rate that is representing the global instability of the turbo-system. The fluctuating torque components were 0.01Nm(5000rpm), 0.1Nm(10000rmp), 0.04Nm(20000rmp), 0.15Nm(40000rmp) respectively. Only for 10000rpm(166Hz) the output toque was random, and it implies that it creates unsteady flow by separations on the blades, and will reduce the pressure loss significantly.

This paper presents four new iterative decoders for two dimensional product block codes (2D-PBC) based on Genetic Algorithms. Each of these iterative decoders runs in parallel on a number of processors connected by a network. They have almost the same complexity as the conventional iterative decoder, but their performances are improved since at each iteration, they trap the better of extrinsic information computed by the elementary decoders running simultaneously on all processors. © 2014 IEEE.

The significant increase in the prices of conventional energy sources and the public awareness of the need to reduce global warming have encouraged many countries to develop new systems based on renewable energies. Combining renewable energy sources with storage units to form a multi source system can provide a more economic, and reliable supply of electricity in all load demand conditions compared to a single-use of such systems. The energy balance between production and consumption should be carefully conducted while choosing the storage method to ensure the availability of power on demand and improve the dynamic behavior of the hybrid system. This paper presents a study of a HRES composed of Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels and a wind turbine as primary energy sources and batteries as storage units and proposes a computer algorithm based on type-1 fuzzy logic to control the energy between production and consumption and ensure the availability of power on demand. © 2015 IEEE.

The extra cost of the measures taken to protect a building against seismic risk is higher concerning old buildings than new designed ones. But since more than 80% of buildings were designed before the new seismic codes, it is a huge heritage waiting to manage, with great priority. Sophisticated methodologies are emerging in Seismic Engineering, as the Performance Based Earthquake Engineering, PEER. We improved the decision analysis model, and we proposed a multidisciplinary approach dealing with different classes of buildings and different seismic regions to solve, without restriction, the particular case of France. It allows sharing the responsibility by all, in order to convince people to rehabilitate their structures by including them in the decision process.

This paper reports on the current development of a new Thompson-Lampard calculable capacitor at LNE. The goal is to determine the von Klitzing constant R K at a significant level of uncertainty of about one part in 10 8. The comparison with other accurate measurements of h/e2 serves as a relevant test of validity of the theory predicting R K = h/e 2, a decisive issue within the context of the new SI. Conversely, assuming that this relation is exact, the measurement of R K and thus that of the fine structure constant can be used for testing quantum electrodynamics theory. The mechanical structure of the new LNE calculable cross capacitor has been designed and a new set of electrodes has been fabricated. The assembling of the calculable capacitor is in progress.

This paper presents an embodiment design model of single-effect mechanical vapor compression (MVC) system. The main objective of this study is to define the specific power consumption and the specific heat transfer area of the MVC system, as a function of the need for freshwater. Mathematical models are established based on the functional analysis, the energy and mass balance equations as well as correlations of the thermophysical properties. The input parameters of model are the desired product flow rate, the brine/feed salinity and the feed seawater temperature. The design solutions are qualified using a quality index and they are defined by the temperature of brine and distillate streams as design variables. The overall design problem has been formulated as a Mixed Complementarity Problem (MCP) and solved with the PATH solver using the platform GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System). The results demonstrate the influence of the design variables on the system architecture and its electric power consumption which define the quality index. A large gap between the design variables reduces the heat transfer area, but increases the specific power consumption of the vapor compressor. This study confirms that the MVC desalination concept is suitable for low product capacity of freshwater. © 2015 IEEE.
