Il Grande Incendio di Salonicco (1917) e la sua ricostruzione contribuirono a ridisegnare la geografia etno-confessionale lungo il nuovo confine greco-turco, ma anche alla transizione della città da “Gerusalemme dei Balcani” a “Capitale dei profughi”. Pochi decenni prima dell’incendio che avrebbe colpito nel corpo la comunità ebraica europea – l’Olocausto – quello di Salonicco concorse ad alimentare fenomeni migratori e progetti di ricostruzione in luoghi distanti : calcando le orme dei loro correligionari centreuropei, gli ebrei di Salonicco emigrarono verso l’Europa occidentale, le Americhe. Alcuni preferirono la Palestina.Dalla fine dell’Ottocento, le persecuzioni razziali in Europa – spesso accompagnate dall’incendio dei luoghi di culto – avevano provocato regolari ondate migratorie verso questa remota provincia dell’Impero ottomano, ora sotto Mandato britannico. A ciascuna di queste ondate corrispondevano altrettante campagne insediative accomunate dallo sforzo di diverse generazioni di agronomi, architetti e urbanisti nella definizione dei caratteri e delle forme del villaggio agricolo ebraico ; « topos » prioritario nella ricostruzione delle nuove identità individuali e collettive ebraiche.Nei primi anni Venti, il riassetto geopolitico del Mediterraneo orientale rappresenta l’occasione per l’Organizzazione sionista di guidare il « ritorno degli ebrei alla loro terra d’origine » e all’agricoltura. Nella Valle di Jesreel si mette in atto un ambizioso progetto di ricostruzione e diradicamento, fisico e culturale a un tempo : un giovane architetto e urbanista di origini tedesche – Richard Kauffmann (1887-1958) – progetta numerosi villaggi agricoli, una piccola agro-città (Afula) e lo sviluppo della Baia di Haifa. La sequenza di questi progetti prefigura un precoce esperimento di pianificazione regionale pre-statale dal quale emerge la prima espressione compiuta di un’idea dello Spazio-Nazione sionista : un sistema insediativo lineare fondato sull’agricoltura, gerarchicamente organizzato e funzionalmente integrato, in cui è possibile apprezzare il grado di necessità del progetto di architettura nel quadro di una strategia di ampio respiro che stabilisce rapporti originali con la natura, la storia e l’« impianto geografico » a scala nazionale.

A continuous solar simulator for measuring performance of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) systems is presented. The illumination system is based on a Xenon lamp, a homogenizer rod, shaping optics and a 30cm diameter collimator. The design optimises the reproduction of the characteristics of direct solar illumination: 32’ divergence, high spatial homogeneity, sun-like spectral distribution, with a maximum intensity of 250W/m². It accommodates pass-band and attenuation filters to tune the beam output. It operates in continuous mode, allowing to investigate CPV thermal aspects as well. The present paper addresses the concept design of the solar simulator and associated performance results. [less ▲]

Wheat is the most widely-grown food crop in the world and the most important cereal crop traded on international markets. An early prediction of its yield prior to harvest at regional, national and international scales can play a crucial role in global markets, policy and decision making. Many models for yield forecasting are available with varying levels of complexity and empiricism. The use of remote sensing technology for monitoring crop condition and predicting crop yields at regional scales have been studied extensively during these last decades. Earth observation data, owing to their synoptic, timely and repetitive coverage, have been recognized as a valuable tool for yield and production forecasting. At field level, studies on crop breeding showed that a close correlation exists between green leaf area during maturation and grain yield in wheat. Thus, the onset and rate of senescence appeared as important factors for determining grain yield of this crop. The aim of this research is to explore a simplified approach for wheat yield forecasting at the European NUTS-3 administrative level, based on metrics derived from the senescence phase of green area index (GAI) estimated from remote sensing data. This study takes advantage of considerable recent improvements in sensor technology and data availability through the opportunity of applying medium/coarse spatial resolution data for deriving crop specific GAI time series by selecting pixels whose ground-projected instantaneous field of view is constituted by a high cover fraction of winter wheat. This approach is tested on 2 crop growing season over a 300 by 300 km study site comprising Belgium and northern France within the framework of the GLOBAM (GLObal Agricultural Monitoring systems by integration of earth observation and modelling techniques) project. The validation of such an approach will involve the comparison with official wheat yield data at NUTS-3 level. [less ▲]

The papaer reports on laboratory results regarding bio leaching of metallic copper from cable-bearing scraps derived from recycling of end-of-life vehicles. The copper has been met in pure form as irregular shaped wires often coated with tin. The complex nature of the material renders both gravity and physicochemical separation unsuitable for efficient copper separation. Hence a bacterially assisted leaching with mixed consortium of mesophylic microorganisms has been tested for recevery of the remaining copper. Continuous adaptation of the cultures to the substrate has been envisaged in order to guarantee sufficient degree of ferric iron regeneration by bacteria during leaching. It has been established that under optimal leaching conditions such as acid consumption, pulp density, pH and temperature, it is possible to recover nearly 98 % of the copper in solution within acceptable leaching duration.

The present study aims to quantify nitrogen (N) excretions in dairy cows on a rotational grazing system with different types of fertilization (mineral N, slurry and compost) after 3 or 5 days in the paddock and during two different periods in June and September. Individual samples of faeces and urine were collected to assess N excretions from cows in the paddocks. The urea content in milk from the tank or from the individual cows was also measured. N intake was higher on day 3 compared to day 5 (465 vs 425 g d-1, P<0.001) and in September as compared to June (488 vs 425 g d-1, P<0.001) but was not influenced by the fertilization type. The amount of excreted urinary N was significantly higher in the mineral N group than in the two other groups (272 vs 226 g d-1; P<0.001). The N excretion in faeces and urines decreased with days (92 vs 84 g d-1, P<0.01; 256 vs 228 g d-1, P<0.001 respectively for days 3 and 5). Urinary N excretion was lower in June than in September (181 vs 302 g d-1, P<0.001) while the N excretion in the faeces was higher (96 vs 80 g d-1, P<0.01). [less ▲]

An aerodynamic study of the ULB-developed ducted rotor MAV using the results of full-scale wind tunnel tests allowed the determination of the platform’s positive speed envelope, power requirements and endurance characteristics for ISA sea level conditions. In this study, the power consumption appears to be majorly depending on the rotor rotational speed, while an increase in horizontal speed results in a duct operating more as a circular wing, also unveiling a power bucket as is the case with conventional helicopters. A positive influence of the ground proximity on the total thrust has been monitored. [less ▲]

Despite the major ecological importance of Posidonia oceanica seagrass meadows in the Mediterranean Sea, little attention has been given to community structuring forces by predators in this ecosystem. To better understand the mechanisms by which fishes affect amphipod community structure associated to P. oceanica beds, experimental manipulations of predation intensity (enclosure and exclusion cages) were set up in the Tavolara-Punta Coda Cavallo Marine Protected Area (Sardinia, NW Mediterranean). In totally protected area, where high abundance of predatory fishes is recorded, we have performed exclusion experiment. Total amphipod abundance increased at the end of the experiment, but diversity and specific composition were unaffected. At the species taxonomic level, significant increase in abundance between treatments appeared only for Caprella acanthifera. In partially protected area, where fish abundance is lower and amphipod abundance higher, individuals of the carnivorous fish Coris julis (Labridae) were enclosed in cages to provide an estimate of the potential for this species to impact on amphipod community. There was a small but measurable effect on amphipod abundance between enclosures and unmanipulated controls. A few dominant amphipod species responded to fish predation by significant decrease in abundance. These results suggest that fish predation may determine the relative abundances in the community of some amphipod species and to some degree, through an untested link with habitat complexity, determine the spatial distribution of amphipod abundance within P. oceanica beds. Moreover, patterns observed at the species level, suggest parallel complex interactions probably mainly related to ecological behaviour of amphipod species. [less ▲]

This paper addresses the problem of verifying programs for the relaxed memory models implemented in modern processors. Specifically, it considers the TSO (Total Store Order) relaxation, which corresponds to the use of store buffers. The proposed approach proceeds by using finite automata to symbolically represent the possible contents of the store buffers. Store, load and commit operations then correspond to operations on these finite automata. The advantage of this approach is that it operates on (potentially infinite) sets of buffer contents, rather than on individual buffer configurations. This provides a way to tame the explosion of the number of possible buffer configurations, while preserving the full generality of the analysis. It is thus possible to check even designs that exploit the relaxed memory model in unusual ways. An experimental implementation has been used to validate the feasibility of the approach. [less ▲]

In the future, virtual networks will be allocated, maintained and managed much like clouds offering flexibility, extensibility and elasticity with resources acquired for a limited time and even on a lease basis. Adaptive provisioning is required to maintain virtual network topologies, comply with established contracts, expand initial allocations on demand, release resources no longer useful, optimise resource utilisation and respond to anomalies, faults and evolving demands. In this paper, we elaborate on adaptive virtual resource provisioning to maintain virtual networks, allocated initially on demand, in response to a virtual network creation request. We propose a distributed fault-tolerant embedding algorithm, which relies on substrate node agents to cope with failures and severe performance degradation. This algorithm coupled with dynamic resource binding is integrated and evaluated within a medium-scale experimental infrastructure. [less ▲]

Within the entire complex procedure required to measure dioxins and related compounds in biological matrices, the extraction step is often seen as a well controlled step. Although maybe true for many human and food-related matrices, the situation is very different for animal feed and feed ingredients. Specific European guidelines (e.g. Commission Directive 2006/13/EC, Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009) exist for animal feed but only list general requirements for the various stages of the procedure. The liberty is left to laboratories to select, for example, the tools used for the extraction steps. This has the advantage to allow ‘in-house’ methods to be used, as long as they satisfy with all the requirements of the EU Regulation. In that context, it is foreseen that the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) will soon propose a standard for the determination of PCDD/Fs and PCBs in animal feed that would be the reference method to be used to solve potential issues in case of dispute over results reported from different laboratories. A major point of concern is that it has been reported earlier1 that most commonly accepted extraction procedure can conduct to significantly different results for the extraction of dioxins and related compounds in feed and feed additives such as mineral clays and various oxides. Several non-instrumental and instrumental automated approaches are available for extraction. Soxhlet extractors have long been the most used tools for non-instrumental extraction of solids. They have proven to be very efficient but some limitations encouraged the development of other approaches based on instrumental techniques. For feed extraction, pressurized liquid extraction (PLE) (also branded as accelerated solvent extraction ASE®) is the technique of choice for high sample throughput. This study reports on the investigation of the use of various solvent mixtures, extraction temperatures, and instruments (parallel PLE, sequential ASE®) for the extraction of 17 PCDD/Fs and 12 dioxin-like PCBs in mineral clay, bovine feed, fish meal, and in-house quality control animal compound feed.

Shipbuilding has been severely affected by the global economic crisis. Demand for new ships has collapsed world wide since summer 2008 causing an unprecedented levels of overcapacity in the global cargo ship fleets. The current crisis gives impulses for a radical think to adopt new designs to reduce the life cycle costs and to decrease the environmental impact. Leading shipping companies recognise that low life cycle cost and low emission save costs, open quality sensitive markets and will be the key driver to profitability in the future. The speaker will present some possible techniques to improve the link between design and production in order to boost the competitiveness of worldwide shipyards. Modularizations, ease of manufacturing, standardization, virtual reality, production simulation, product life cycle management, are some of these techniques illustrated in the presentation. The speaker will also draw the trends for the future years. [less ▲]

In industries like telecom, postal services or energy provision, universal service obligations (uniform price and universal coverage) are often imposed on one market participant. Universal service obligations are likely to alter firms' strategic behavior in such competitive markets. In this paper we show that, depending on the entrant's market coverage and the degree of product differentiation, the Nash equilibrium in prices involves either pure or mixed strategies. We show that the pure strategy market sharing equilibrium, as identified by Valletti et al. (2002) defines a lower bound on the level of equilibrium prices. [less ▲]

The paper presents a comparison between the nonlinear elastic and elastoplastic models for Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) behaviour of an unsaturated medium. A fully coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical formulation for an unsaturated soil is considered using net stress, suction as two state variables. In this formulation, all significant coupled interactions between the different components involved in an unsaturated porous medium subjected to heating have been taken into account. The coupling effects of temperature, moisture content and deformation of skeleton are included in the nonlinear elastic model, via the temperature-dependent state surfaces concept. After a brief description of the formulation, the basic principles of the elastoplastic model are described, which considers a temperature-dependent yield surface with an associated flow rule. Then, the strong ability of this model is shown by presenting the results of analyzing of an applicative example using this model, and compared with the nonlinear elastic model using the code è-Stock.

Observing Venus nightglow is a key tool to understand the composition and the dynamics of its atmosphere. Results deduced from observations can be implemented to produce a data model of Venus atmosphere. For instance, the Visible and Infra-Red Thermal Imaging Spectrometer (VIRTIS) instrument on board the Venus Express spacecraft is very useful to analyze the O2(a1Δ) nightglow at 1.27 µm in the Venus mesosphere. Nadir observations can be used to create a statistical map of the emission on Venus nightside. It appears that the maximum of the emission is located near the antisolar point. Limb observations also provide information on the altitude and on the shape of the emission layer. Combining nadir observations and vertically integrated limb observations improves the statistics of the emission map on Venus nightside. An associated limb profile can also be deduced for any point of the nightside. Given all these O2(a1Δ) intensity profiles, O2* density profiles can be calculated. O density profiles can also be calculated as long as CO2 density profiles are available. These can be retrieved either from the VTS3 model or from SPICAV stellar occultation measurements. Finally, three-dimensional maps of excited molecular and atomic oxygen densities can be generated. The oxygen density map shows significant differences from the VTS3 model predictions. [less ▲]

Osteoarthritis (OA) is an important cause of pain and disability in the ageing population. Angiogenesis and inflammation are closely integrated process in OA and may contribute to its pathogenesis, as well as, affect disease progression and pain. Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is a symptomatic slow acting drug for OA and there is strong evidence suggesting that CS may also be a structure disease modifying osteoarthritis drug. The mechanisms underlying these effects remain poorly understood. This work aimed to demonstrate the relation between inflammation and angiogenesis of synovium and to study the effect of CS on synovium angiogenesis. [less ▲]

The European Nitrate Directive (91/676/CEE) aims at moderating or preventing water pollution from nitrates released by agricultural practices. The Belgian Walloon region transposed it into law and initiated a Sustainable Nitrogen Management Program in 2002 (also called PGDA in French). The non-profit association NITRAWAL amongst others, is in charge of providing support to farmers to implement and respect this program. GRENeRA is one of the organizations designated for scientific studies. In this frame, GRENeRA and its partners implemented six lysimeters in agricultural open fields, operated under real conditions of industrial harvest crops, especially vegetables. The lysimeters are used as follow up tools to monitor and quantify the amount of nitrates leaching beyond the root zone towards underground water reserves. This study demonstrates that lysimeters are efficient and permit the collection of representative samples of seepage water. On a quality stand point, nitrate content combined with data related to agricultural practices, fertilisation rates applied and advised, climate, the defined environmental indicator (APL) provide a global approach to link agricultural practices and underground water protection from nitrate pollution. The lysimeters validate the reliability of the environmental indicator (APL) with the nitrate content in leaching water, which will not be uptaken by the next crop. Unfortunately, it is also demonstrated that even when the nitrogen management is respectful of the current legislation, the goal to comply with the targeted standards of water quality is not ensured. The lysimeter tool clearly show that the respect of seepage water quality standards issued from industrial agriculture does not have to be considered per crop but rather from an integrated and global perspective of the complete crop sequence and rotations, in respect with best agricultural practices, reasonable fertilisation rates, inset crops, etc., for each individual crop being part of the overall rotation. Some favourable and non favourable crop sequences with respect to nitrates content of underground water are summarized. Experiments are in progress on crop sequence evaluation and fertilisation levels and recommendations for Belgian Walloon industrial crops and their associated impacts on the leaching water quality and nitrate content collected by lysimeters.

A methodology based on the social participation through the use of resident diaries was applied to evaluate the odour annoyance in the surroundings of an industrial park in Belgium during one year. The studied area covers about 8 km2 and includes13 potential odour emitting facilities. A network of 44 residents was implied in the survey, from which 19 were particularly considered for a detailed analysis. The questionnaire aimed at providing twice-daily an odour strength rating on a 6-level scale together with an odour qualifier. The fact that the response rate corresponding to "no-odour" was high (79%) is particularly discussed. Some tests are proposed to check the plausibility of the responses, the consistency within clusters of residents and the individual performance of respondents to discriminate among odour ratings. The odour rose is presented as an attractive and visual tool, particularly suited in the case of multi-source areas, to map the different odour emissions, to point out the more worrying ones, some others creating less annoyance and possible new unpredicted ones. The resident diary method proves to be very interesting, especially in the case of an industrial area, provided that validation checks are performed to insure the data reliability. [less ▲]

Two alloys grades for work rolls used in the roughing stand of Hot Strip Mill (HSM) were compared. The first grade known as High Chromium Steel (HCS) is actually the alloy widely used for such an application, while the second one known as semi-High Speed Steel (semi-HSS) is the new grade developed to improve overall properties of the work roll in the roughing stands of the HSM. In the present work, the new semi-HSS grade is studied starting from 3 chemical compositions closed one to another, the variation in the alloying elements being intended to assess, on one hand the effect of a light increase of the carbon content, and on the other hand the influence of the addition of a strong MC carbide forming element. The comparison of HCS and semi-HSS grades involved many fields. Regarding the metallurgical aspect, such a comparison led to the enhancement of the solidification range, the crystallization behavior and the microstructure in the as-cast condition for both grades. Heat treatment behavior of both grades was also investigated and optimal parameters leading to the homogenization of the alloy composition within the deepness of the roll were found. Furthermore, hot corrosion behavior and performances of the work rolls in service were compared. Various techniques were used in order to characterize both grades, such as Differential Thermal Analysis (to determine phase transformations temperatures, the crystallization behavior and the interval of solidification), hardness measurements, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy associated with energy dispersive X ray spectroscopy (to determine the nature and the composition of phases, especially matrix and carbides). Finally micro-macro relations between the nature of the microstructure and the properties of HCS and semi-HSS rolls grades in service conditions could be established. [less ▲]
