  1. Instabilities and growing waves: power absorbed or generated by the various excited modes in a plasma; Instabilites et ondes croissantes: puissance absorbee - ou engendree - par les differents modes excites dans un plasma

    The character, stable or unstable, of a medium can be deduced from the behavior of an ideal model of a semi-infinite medium which is subjected to an excitation only at the boundary. A new analytic method is used to solve this problem. The results obtained show a connection between the character of the medium and certain properties of the dispersion equation, and agree with those derived from other methods. Then, the energy exchange between a medium and a source of excitation is investigated. In order to include the case of growing waves associated with convective instabilities, this problem is treated in the context of the wave packet theory. We find that - even in the absence of collisions - there still is a power exchange. Thus a connexion can be established with the kinematic theories of growing waves and the modes generating power can be found. Moreover, the power absorbed by spatial dispersion is found to be identical with that due to Landau's effect for long waves. This confirms the kinematic character of the latter and bridges a gap between macroscopic and microscopic theories.

    The energy exchange between a plasma and a source of excitation J(r)sin(w{sub 0}t) is investigated. In order to include the case of growing waves associated with connective instabilities, this problem is treated in the context of the wave-packet theory, by writing the field as a double integral in two complex planes. the paths of the integration are defined after a separation into two classes of the root k(w) of the dispersion equation. We find that - at even in the absence of collisions - there is still a power exchange exchange, due to the spatial dispersion. Thus a connexion can be established with the kinematic theories of growing waves [1][2] and the modes generating power can be found. Moreover, the power dissipated by spatial dispersion is found to be critical with that due to Landau's effect for long waves. This confirms the kinematic character of the latter and bridges a gap between macroscopic and microscopic theories. (author) [French] On etudie les echanges d'energie entre un plasma et une source d'excitation J(r)sin(w{sub 0}t). Pour inclure le cas des ondes croissantes associees aux instabilites convectives, on traite ce probleme dans le cadre de la theorie du paquet d'ondes en definissant le champ par une integrale double dans deux plans complexes; les parcours d'integration sont precises apres avoir separe en deux classes les racines k(w) de l'equation de dispersion. On trouve que meme en l'absence de collisions, la puissance echangee n'est pas nulle, a cause de la dispersion spatiale. Ceci permet d'etablir une connexion avec les theories cinematiques des ondes croissantes [1][2], tout en precisant quels sont les modes generateurs d'energie. Par ailleurs, la puissance dissipee par dispersion spatiale se revele identique a la dissipation par effet Landau pour les grandes ondes, ce qui confirme le caractere cinematique de ce dernier et fait la jonction entre les theories microscopique et macroscopique.

  4. Onde elettromagnetiche

    Toraldo di Francia, Giuliano

    1988-01-01

    Prefazione: "L'opera "Onde Elettromagnetiche" di Giuliano Toraldo di Francia vide la luce per i tipi della Casa Editrice Zanichelli nel lontano 1953. Tradotta ben presto in inglese e in giapponese, ha incontrato il favore di varie generazioni di studenti universitari e un apprezzamento dei docenti che non sembra ancora estinto. Ma è evidente che in trentacinque anni tante cose, troppe cose sono avvenute in quel campo di studio, per poter pensare che oggi il vecchio libro non presenti cospicue lacune. Ed è proprio a colmare tali lacune che ci siamo dedicati nell'elaborare il presente volume, pur conservando quasi tutto il materiale che aveva dato buona prova nel suo progenitore. La mole è inevitabilmente raddoppiata; eppure siamo ben lungi dall'avere esaurito un dominio così vasto, né ci eravamo proposti di farlo. Quello che presentiamo è il frutto di una scelta ragionata. Abbiamo ritenuto opportuno ampliare la parte sulle onde piane (con l'introduzione dei parametri di Stokes, e dei concetti di velocit�...

  5. The Energetic Neutral Atoms of the "Croissant" Heliosphere with Jets

    Kornbleuth, M. Z.; Opher, M.; Michael, A.

    2017-12-01

    Opher et al. (2015) suggests the heliosphere may have two jets in the tail-ward direction driven to the north and south. This new model, the "Croissant Heliosphere", is in contrast to the classically accepted view of a comet-like tail. We investigate the effect of the heliosphere with jets model on energetic neutral atom (ENA) maps. Regardless of the existence of a split tail, other models show heliosheath plasma confined by the toroidal magnetic field in a "slinky" structure, similar to astrophysical jets bent by the interstellar medium. Therefore, the confinement of the plasma should appear in the ENA maps. ENA maps from the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) have recently shown two high latitude lobes with excess ENA flux at higher energies in the tail of the heliosphere. These lobes could be a signature of the two jet structure of the heliosphere, while some have argued they are cause by the fast/slow solar wind profile. Here we present the ENA maps of the "Croissant Heliosphere" using initially a uniform solar wind. We incorporate pick-up ions (PUIs) into our model based on the kinetic modeling of Malama et al. (2006). We include the extinction of PUIs in the heliosheath and describe a locally created PUI population resulting from this extinction process. Additionally, we include the angular dependence of the PUIs based on the work of Vasyliunas & Siscoe (1976). With our model, we find that, in the presence of a uniform solar wind, the "heliosphere with jets" model is able to qualitatively reproduce the lobe structure of the tail seen in IBEX measurements. Turbulence also manifests itself within the lobes of the simulated ENA maps on the order of years. Finally we will present ENA maps using a time-dependent model of the heliosphere with the inclusion of solar cycle.

    Molti dei fenomeni in cui s'imbatte quotidianamente possono essere interpretati in modo semplice alla luce di quello che è uno dei concetti unificanti della fisica, il concetto di onda: dalle onde acustiche che si propagano nell'aria a quelle luminose, dalle onde radio alle onde meccaniche dei cristalli di quarzo impiegati per controllare la frequenza dei radiotrasmettitori, dalle onde sismiche alle onde di probabilità studiate dalla meccanica quantistica, fino alle onde del linguaggio comune, quelle che muovono la superficie dell'acqua.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo aborda a evolução da Geografia enquanto pensamento científico, analisando seu objeto de estudo e suas categorias de análise durante todo o percurso da criação desse saber. Observa primeiramente a formação da Geografia Clássica, que teve seus princípios já instituídos na Antiguidade com Ptolomeu e Estrabão, desdobrando-se no período Iluminista com Ritter e Humboldt que fornecerão uma nova temporalidade a essa ciência. Atinge seu ápice na Modernidade Industrial com a racionalidade de Kant, onde Ratzel e La Blache utilizarão o determinismo e o possibilismo para constituir um discurso científico para a Geografia. Finaliza apontando a nova compreensão do mundo, conhecida como pós-modernismo por David Harvey (1992 ou por Milton Santos (1996 como Globalização, que junto a outros geógrafos e pesquisadores, indicam caminhos de análise dessa ciência na compreensão do seu objeto de estudo.

  17. Improvements in the electromechanical conversion of energy using shock waves; Contribution a la conversion d'energie electromecanique par onde de choc

    Landure, Yves

    1971-10-21

    This report concerns the electrical mechanical conversion. In this study it was obtained by the depolarization of a ferroelectric ceramic. We are particularly interested by the high electrical horse-power. Shock wave which produces depolarization is created by a gun powder. The speed of the projectile is measured and the pressures generated in the ceramic is determined graphically. The energy freed is released on a linear resistive load. We were able to prove by different parameters how to obtain the maximum electrical energy. On a resistive load of 26 ohms, it was freed 0,91 J/cm{sup 3} in less than 0,5 μs corresponding to an electrical horse-power superior to 2 MW/cm{sup 3}. (author) [French] Ce rapport concerne la conversion d'energie electro-mecanique. Dans cette etude elle est obtenue par la depolarisation d'une ceramique ferro-electrique.

La vitesse du projectile est mesuree et la pression engendree dans la ceramique est determinee graphiquement. L'energie liberee est recueillie sur une impedance de charge lineaire. On a pu mettre en evidence differents parametres permettant d'obtenir l'energie electrique maximale. Sur une charge resistive de 26 ohms, il a ete libere 0,91 j/cm{sup 3} en moins de 0,5 μs, soit une puissance superieure a 2 MW/cm{sup 3}. (auteur)

    The power of a homogeneous reactor can be determined if the fission rate at one point is known, and also the flux chart throughout the whole volume of fuel. By applying this method to Proserpine, the following operations have been carried out: 1) determination of the fission rate at a point by means of a miniature zirconium fission chamber, with absolute counting of the plutonium deposit in a low-geometry {alpha} chamber; 2)establishment of a flux chart by activation of gold bands, without contamination of gold by plutonium.

    In the first part of this research thesis, the author reports the development of a linear electron accelerator with a presentation of charged waveguides which are their main components. He also proposes a recall of the charged waveguide theory, an overview of some experimental guides, a description of the calculation method, and reports the actual realisation of the accelerator waveguide. The apparatus is precisely described, and results obtained during tests are presented. The second part of the thesis addresses the study of millimetre wavelength waves. It reports the study of the electron movement in a sinusoidal inverter, and in a helical inverter (a solenoid in which the electron has a helical trajectory). Then, the author proposes a detailed presentation of electron radiation theory: fundamental wavelength, total radiated power, angular and spectral distribution of radiation. The author finally reports a comparison between radiations obtained with different devices [French] La premiere partie de ce memoire traite precisement de l'etude et de la construction de notre accelerateur lineaire d'electrons, le chapitre I etant consacre aux fluides d'ondes charges, qui en constituent l'element essentiel.

    There are still many problems in the field of measurement and control of neutron flux. The present studies in connexion with high flux reactors contribute to the solution of these problems which concern specialists in reactor control. The present state of this investigation and the results of different studies carried out in France by the C A and the EDF are pointed out: A - In the nuclear instrumentation field, work is at present devoted to the technologies used to develop detectors and cables, which have to work at high temperature and in a high {gamma} background; fast electronic techniques are applied to fission counters to measure low neutron fluxes in a high {gamma} background (10 Rh). B - In the control and safety field, there is a real need for studies on the behaviour of reactors in the subcritical state. This increases the margin of security during restarts when poison effects must be overcome The perturbations due to control rod movements necessitate a new organisation of power level safety and control assemblies, in connexion with thermal or activation measurements. Two methods of fast start-up are described. They are related to the fission rate measurement as a function of time. This is done either continuously by a constant and high reactivity change, or step by step. The application of automatic techniques to detector motion seems to give the answer to control and safety in normal start-up. C - The scope of these studies covers the methods used for the control of E.D.F. 3, which are described. (authors) [French] La mesure et le controle du flux neutronique dans les piles de puissance posent encore de nombreux problemes. Les etudes actuellement entreprises dans le domaine des piles a haut flux, doivent apporter une contribution importante a la solution de ces problemes qui interessent les specialistes du controle des piles de puissance.

    After recalling the entry of nuclear energy into energy production in France, the paper emphasizes the evolution of techniques applied in the designing of French nuclear power plants and describes the means employed for reducing costs per kWh of EDF2 and EDF3 compared with EDF1: the electric power per ton of uranium varies from 493 kW/t for EDF1 to 970 kW/t for EDF3. For this purpose the thermal power and electric power of units are changed respectively from 290 MWt for EDF1 to 1200 or 1600 MWt for EDF3 and from 28 to 250 MW. The results are obtained by an improvement in neutronic characteristics, developments in nuclear fuel technology, and simplification of the system of charging the reactor, whose means of maintenance are increased; the EDF2 heat-exchangers have been so designed as to increase the unit power of the elements, which will attain 9 MWt, as against 3 for EDF1. For EDF3 an advance project forecasts a thermodynamic layout with only one pressure stage. The paper ends with a description of the burst-slug detection systems, and an appendix gives a detailed comparative table of EDF1, EDF2 and EDF3 plant characteristics.

C'est dans ce but que les puissances thermiques et la puissance unitaire des groupes turbo-alternateurs passent respectivement de 290 MWt pour EDF1 a 1200 ou 1600 MWt pour EDF3 et de 82 a 250 MW.

    A power channel, which is to be used on Melusine, the 2 MW pool-type reactor built at Grenoble Nuclear Center, is described. It will be used for measuring of {sup 16}N activity of water after passage through the reactor core. The experimental system as well as the measuring instruments are described. Solutions to problems likely to arise are given. The experimental results show that this power measurement is free from neutron flux local deformations, from control rods position, and from experiments. The power indicated is to {+-}2% the same as the thermodynamic power. Since May 1962, this power channel is used as a reference for the operation of the reactor. It is also provided for on the Siloe 10 MW reactor. (author) [French] L'objet de ce rapport est la description d'une nouvelle chaine de puissance pour la pile piscine 'Melusine' de 2 MW du Centre d'etudes Nucleaires de Grenoble. Il s'agit de la mesure de l'activite en azote 16 de l'eau apres son passage dans le coeur du reacteur. Le dispositif experimental ainsi que les appareils de mesure y sont decrits. Les reponses aux differents problemes poses sont donnees. Les resultats experimentaux montrent que cette mesure de puissance est independante des deformations locales de flux de neutrons, de la position des barres de controle et des manipulations. La puissance indiquee par cette chaine est a 2 % pres identique a la puissance thermodynamique. Depuis mai 1962, elle est utilisee comme reference pour le pilotage de la pile.

  8. Techniques d'inspection par ondes guidees ultrasonores d'assemblages brases dans des reacteurs aeronautiques =

    Comot, Pierre

    L'industrie aeronautique, cherche a etudier la possibilite d'utiliser de maniere structurelle des joints brases, dans une optique de reduction de poids et de cout. Le developpement d'une methode d'evaluation rapide, fiable et peu couteuse pour evaluer l'integrite structurelle des joints apparait donc indispensable. La resistance mecanique d'un joint brase dependant principalement de la quantite de phase fragile dans sa microstructure. Les ondes guidees ultrasonores permettent de detecter ce type de phase lorsqu'elles sont couplees a une mesure spatio-temporelle. De plus la nature de ce type d'ondes permet l'inspection de joints ayant des formes complexes. Ce memoire se concentre donc sur le developpement d'une technique basee sur l'utilisation d'ondes guidees ultrasonores pour l'inspection de joints brases a recouvrement d'Inconel 625 avec comme metal d'apport du BNi-2. Dans un premiers temps un modele elements finis du joint a ete utilise pour simuler la propagation des ultrasons et optimiser les parametres d'inspection, la simulation a permis egalement de demontrer la faisabilite de la technique pour la detection de la quantite de phase fragile dans ce type de joints. Les parametres optimises sont la forme de signal d'excitation, sa frequence centrale et la direction d'excitation. Les simulations ont montre que l'energie de l'onde ultrasonore transmise a travers le joint aussi bien que celle reflechie, toutes deux extraites des courbes de dispersion, etaient proportionnelles a la quantite de phase fragile presente dans le joint et donc cette methode permet d'identifier la presence ou non d'une phase fragile dans ce type de joint. Ensuite des experimentations ont ete menees sur trois echantillons typiques presentant differentes quantites de phase fragile dans le joint, pour obtenir ce type d'echantillons differents temps de brasage ont ete utilises (1, 60 et 180 min). Pour cela un banc d'essai automatise a ete developpe permettant d'effectuer une analyse similaire

    Medial canthus is a common area of skin cancer prevalence. Defects in this region represent a challenging reconstructive task. The nasal version of keystone perforator island flap (KPIF) has proven its versatility. The aim of the present study was to expand its utilization in the neighbor medial canthus area. A modified croissant-like KPIF (CKPIF) was used resolving inner convexity-related problems. The presence of procerus in the glabella area, bridging a surface from nasalis up to the frontalis, changed the traditional dissecting flap technique. Thus, the authors introduce the bridge principle, which consists of the indirect transfer of the flap to the defect site through a muscular "bridge" (the procerus). The authors report their experience in medial canthal reconstruction combining a modified KPIF with a new dissecting "principle." From November 2016 to July 2017, a series of patients presenting soft tissue defects of various dimensions in the medial canthus, secondary to tumor extirpation, sustained reconstruction with a CKPIF dissected with the bridge principle. A total of 15 patients were treated with this new technique. Their mean age was 75.3 years. The mean size of the defect was 2.08 cm (length) × 1.5 cm (width). All flaps survived without any sign of venous congestion. A transient epiphora presented in 4 patients (4/15 or 26.6%), which was subsided 2 months later. A new approach following a novel paradigm was introduced to resolve an old problem. Initial outcomes are encouraging. However, longer series are needed to extract definitive and safer conclusion.

    Nous sommes habitués à observer la lumière des étoiles pour comprendre l’Univers. Ce n’est pourtant pas la radiation la plus présente dans l’Univers mais c’est celle que nous avons d’abord identifiée car nos yeux sont des « détecteurs de lumière ». Or l’Univers est mu par la gravité, non par la lumière. C’est donc la radiation associée, appelée onde gravitationnelle, qui est de première importance pour comprendre le fonctionnement de l’Univers. La détection des ondes gravitationnelles annoncée le 11 février 2016, par le détecteur américain Ligo, a fait l'effet d'une bombe dans les médias. Ce livre, rédigé par un acteur important de cette physique de pointe, nous décrit cet étrange univers gravitationnel qui s'ouvre à nous.

    To measure wave lengths in an ionized medium, the cross-correlation product of the signal collected by a fixed probe and that collected by a movable one exploring the medium, is carried out by an interferometer. In order to determine the various modes, we have made a device which computes the Fourier transform of the signal. The influence of the phase at the origin, of the damping of the signal and of the finite explored length has been studied in order to make a numerical calculation of the Fourier transform.

    This report describes a method for determining by {gamma} spectrometry the burn up and the specific power of fuel elements irradiated in power reactors. The energy spectrum of {gamma} rays emitted by fission products is measured by means of a simple equipment using a sodium iodide detector and a multichannel analyzer. In order to extract from the spectrum a quantity proportional to the burn up, it is necessary to: - isolate an activity specific of one emitter,- give the same importance to fissions in uranium and plutonium - take into account the radioactive decay during and after irradiation. One hundred fuel elements were studied and burn up values obtained by {gamma} spectrometry are compared to results given by chemical analyses. Preliminary measurements show that the accuracy of the results is greatly increased by the use of a germanium detector, due to its good resolution. (authors) [French] Ce rapport expose une methode de determination par spectrometrie {gamma} du taux d'irradiation et de la puissance specifique des elements combustibles irradies dans les reacteurs de puissance. Une installation simple utilisant un detecteur d'iodure de sodium et un selecteur multicanaux mesure le spectre en energie du rayonnement {gamma} emis par les produits de fission. Afin d'extraire du spectre une quantite proportionnelle au taux de combustion, il faut: - isoler une activite specifique a un emetteur, - donner la meme importance aux fissions survenues dans l'uranium et le plutonium, - prendre en compte la decroissance radioactive pendant et apres l'irradiation. Les mesures ont porte sur une centaine d'elements combustibles et les taux de combustion obtenus par spectrometrie {gamma} sont compares aux resultats des analyses chimiques. Des mesures preliminaires montrent que l'utilisation d'un detecteur de germanium augmente considerablement la precision des resultats, en raison de son excellente resolution. (auteurs)

  18. Symetrie en energie des spectres de l'onde de densite de charge dans le 2-hydrogene seleniure de niobium

    Behmand, Behnaz

    Les mecanismes qui menent a la supraconductivite dans les supraconducteurs a haute temperature critique sont encore aujourd'hui mal compris contrairement a ceux dans les supraconducteurs conventionnels. Dans les hauts-Tc, certaines modulations de la densite d'etats electroniques coexistant avec la phase supraconductrice ont ete observees, ce qui engendre des questionnements sur leur role dans la supraconductivite. En fait, plusieurs types de modulation de la densite d'etats electroniques existent, comme par exemple l'onde de densite de charge et l'onde de densite de paires. Ces deux modulations, d'origines differentes et mesurables avec la technique de spectroscopie par effet tunnel, peuvent etre differenciees avec une etude de leur symetrie. Ce memoire consistera donc a presenter l'etude de la symetrie de l'onde de densite de charge dans le 2H-NbSe2 qui est presente dans la phase supraconductrice a 300 mK. Par contre, certaines difficultes liees au principe de mesure, soit l'effet de normalisation, nuisent a l'identification de cette symetrie. La methode, pour contourner ce probleme sera alors l'element clef de ce travail.

The variations of the integral of conductivity of sintered 96 per cent theoretical dense UO{sub 2} has been established until 2300 deg. C; these variations are coherent with those previously measured out-of-pile. The released fission gases have been recovered at different times during the irradiation: the kinetics of release of stable gases is such that, in the experimental conditions (T{sub surface} = 610 deg. C, {integral}{sub T{sub s}}{sup T{sub c}} kdT = 34.7 W cm{sup -1}) the fraction of released gases is still widely increasing after 12 days of irradiation. Numerous observations have been made on concentrations of rare gases locally present in the irradiated fuel.

    The apparatus studied is a digital calculating assembly which makes it possible to prepare and to present numerically the period and power of a nuclear reactor during operation, from start-up to nominal power. The pulses from a fission chamber are analyzed continuously, using real time. A small number of elements is required because of the systematic use of a calculation technique comprising the determination of a base 2 logarithm by a linear approximation. The accuracy obtained for the period is of the order of 14%; the response time of the order of the calculated period value. An approximate value of the power (30%) is given at each calculation cycle together with the power thresholds required for the control. (author) [French] L'appareil etudie est un ensemble de calcul digital permettant d'elaborer et d'afficher numeriquement la periode et la puissance, d'un reacteur nucleaire lors de son fonctionnement depuis le demarrage jusqu'a la puissance nominale.

Grace a l'utilisation systematique d'une technique de calcul, la determination d'un logarithme a base 2 par approximation lineaire, un nombre reduit d'elements est utilise. La precision obtenue sur la periode est de l'ordre de 14 pour cent, le temps de reponse de l'ordre de la valeur de la periode calculee. Un ordre de grandeur de la puissance (30 pour cent) est donne a chaque cycle de calcul ainsi que des seuils de puissance necessaires au controle. (auteur)

    clearly located it is in the f-k domain, the more efficient the filter is. The method is very cost-effective in CPU time. The KLT or SVD filter requires flattening the wave that is to be extracted, which must additionally be of greater amplitude. Filtering is carried out without any edge effect and the wave amplitude variations are preserved. It serves to separate the normal incidence wave from the other waves and the noise. The SMF filter (spectral matrix is expensive in CPU time It makes the hypothesis that the wave is locally stable and does not require the data to be flattened. It can be used to separate very close neighboring waves without resorting to restrictive a priori hypotheses. It gives a measurement of time delays and also provides a measurement of variations in amplitude and phase spectra during propagation. This measurement is much better than the one supplied by the Wiener method, since it operates on all the traces. Additionally, it is used to separate data into a signal space and a noise space. The parametric method is the most expensive as regards time. It is simple to implement and requires no flattening or preparation of data. It extracts the waves according to chosen parameters, especially time delays. It is particularly recommended in offset vertical seismic profiling where the slowness of upgoing waves is unknown. It is robust with respect to some input parameters if the noise is low in comparison to the signal that is to be extracted. Many applications to field data have illustrated the effectiveness of these wave separation techniques. However, application to a new type of data often requires performance to be monitored to choose the best method.

    Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma-related guilt are risk factors for suicidal ideation (SI) in veterans. Components of trauma-related guilt were examined as serial mediators of the relationship between PTSD and SI. In a sample of 53 OEF/OIF/OND combat veterans, PTSD had an indirect effect on SI through a serial mediation chain of guilt cognitions, distress, and global guilt, suggesting that trauma-related guilt via cognitions, distress, and global guilt is a pathway from PTSD to SI. Attention should be given to assessing and addressing trauma-related guilt in veterans experiencing PTSD to prevent SI. © 2016 The American Association of Suicidology.

The self compensated power method which is applied by means of a very sensitive control system, gives a direct value of the different heat capacity between the sample and a dummy of it. The detection threshold is about {+-} 100 micro-watts to {+-} 250 micro-watts. Applications: - Generally measurements of enthalpy changes of massive or powdered samples. - Measurement of Wigner energy after low temperature irradiation (77 deg.

This device is described but the complexity of the physical processes involved makes computer simulation necessary before proposing a simplified model. The existent M2V code has been useful to simulate the behaviour of a vircator but the representation of some phenomena such as hot points, the interaction of waves with particles lacks reliability. A new code CODEX has been written, it can solve Maxwell equations on a double mesh system by a finite difference method. The electric and magnetic fields are directly computed from the scalar and vectorial potentials. This new code has been satisfactorily tested on 3 configurations: the bursting of an electron beam in vacuum, the evolution of electromagnetic fields in diode and the propagation of waves in a wave tube. CODEX has been able to simulate the behaviour of a vircator, the frequency and power are well predicted and some contributions to the problem of origin of microwave production have been made. It seems that the virtual cathode is not directly involved in the microwave production. (A.C.) 139 refs.

Design and evaluation of laser diodes with distributed bragg reflectors and diffracted waves amplifiers bound to their association into a powerful coherent source; Conception et Evaluation de Diodes Laser a Reflecteurs de Bragg Distribues et d`amplificateurs a onde Diffractee et vue de leur Association en une Source Coherente de Puissance

    This work is concerned with the evaluation of AlGaAs/GaAs MOPAs (Master Oscillator Power Amplifier) based on the association of a distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) quantum well laser diode with an optical power amplifier. For any given structure and incident wave, the software SIMLAS allows to describe the behaviour of a travelling wave amplifier and to obtain its working characteristics including the output power, the amplified spontaneous emission and the quality of the output beam. This model takes into account the nonlinear interaction between the wave, the injected carriers distribution and the complex index of the structure. The application of the software to a flared non-guided amplified shows that the output power associated with a good beam quality is limited to a range less than one watt. Then a new design is proposed to greatly improve this performance. The modelling software of the DBR laser takes into account wave propagation in a second-order grating structure and the gain and absorption properties in the quantum well. Thus, the output optical power, efficiency, threshold current and model discrimination of the device can be predicted. The model has been used to establish the definition of design criteria in order to promote edge emission relative to surface emission. Finally the fabrication of each device is established. Special attention is paid to the design of the grating region. The fabrication process is validated by the prototypes performance. (author) refs.

    L'évolution d'un choc de forte amplitude induit par une impulsion laser dans une cible solide est décrite à l'aide d'un modèle hydrodynamique, précisant un modèle antérieur par la prise en compte du déplacement de la surface avant de la cible sous l'effet de la pression d'ablation. Ce modèle est également utilisé pour étudier l'influence du profil initial de pression sur l'amortissement de l'onde de choc au cours de sa propagation.

  13. Wave Separation. Part One: Principle and Methods La séparation d'ondes. Première partie : Principes et méthodes

    Mari J. L.

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available This article is a practical review of the different wave separation methods used in seismic. A wave is described by its propagation vector and its wavelet. The first part of the article shows how the propagation vector can be used to define both the type of propagation (plane or nonplane wave and the characteristics of the medium (dispersive or faulted medium. Wave separation and wave-type identification can then be dealt with by studying the scalar product between two waves or between a wave and a reference model. The main filtering methods are described, in particular : f-k filtering, tau-p filtering, Karhunen-Loeve filtering and spectral matrix filtering. The efficiency of the different methods is assessed with synthetic data. The problem of extracting a wave from noise is also discussed and illustrated with a field example. The second part will be devoted to wave separation per se. The different methods described in the first part are applied to real data, in particular borehole survey seismic data. Special attention is given to the use of specific, less well-known methods such as spectral matrix filtering with adapted or constrained models. Cet article est une revue pratique des différentes méthodes de séparation d'ondes utilisées en sismique. Une onde est décrite par son vecteur de propagation et par son ondelette.

    Full Text Available O luminol é um teste presuntivo para detecção de manchas de sangue, muito sensível, efetivo e seletivo. O objetivo deste trabalho é avaliar a eficácia do luminol na detecção de sangue após o entintamento das paredes em um local onde ocorreu um homicídio. Os peritos se dirigiram para a casa do suspeito e com o uso de uma espátula metálica retiraram parte do revestimento da parede do quarto e após nova aplicação do luminol observaram a mancha branco-azulada, intensa e de duração típica de sangue latente. Os fragmentos retirados da parede foram enviados para o laboratório de DNA que confirmou tratar-se de sangue da vítima. A aplicação dessa técnica no caso em questão encontrando manchas de sangue sob a pintura ajudou a perícia a traçar a dinâmica do evento, ficando mais clara a posição da vítima quando foi alvejada com tiros pelo seu agressor além de ligar aquele local à vítima. O luminol não é capaz de detectar sangue que está sob a tinta da parede. A deteção do sangue latente somente ocorre quando a camada de tinta é retirada.

    The thermal and hydrodynamic phenomena occurring during a power excursion were studied in an out-of-pile loop with a water cooled channel at low pressure (1 to 4 atm. abs. ). Circular and rectangular test sections with electrically heated walls of two different thermal diffusivity materials(aluminium and stainless steel) were used. The rectangular test sections were 600 mm long, 35 mm wide and had a 2, 9 mm gap; they simulate two half plates of the M.T.R. fuel element. Natural or forced convection are possible in the test section; the water height above it can be varied from 2.8 to 8 meters and the maximum allowed pressure at its outlet is 4 atm. abs.The heating source is a series of lead batteries which is able to generate, for short periods of time, 85 volts and 25000 amperes; linear, square or exponential power rise versus time can be realized. A 14 channels tape recorder (0-10 000 Hz bandwidth; is used for the measurements of temperature (8/100 mm diameter thermocouple), pressure ('Statham' pressure transducers) and void fraction (X rays). More than 500 tests have been carried out. The influence of the initial water temperature, flow rate, pressure, water height on the water ejections, pressure variations and void fraction in the test section were studied. Tests with energies up to 3000 W/cm in 50 milliseconds were attempted. The energy above which the instabilities appear was determined.

    Full Text Available Ce travail comporte deux parties. La première partie concerne la théorie de la propagation des ondes acoustiques dans les milieux poreux saturés. Une revue des différentes méthodes existantes est faite et un développement critique de la théorie de Biot est exposé en détail. On examine en particulier les différents résultats auxquels cette théorie conduit et on regarde, dans quelles conditions et sur quels problèmes géophysiques, les phénomènes physiques mis en évidence peuvent jouer de manière notable. Dans la deuxième partie, on présente une vérification expérimentale due à Plona (1980 de la théorie de Biot. Après une introduction qualitative de l'expérience mise en place, on expose les résultats obtenus pour un grand nombre de matériaux de porosités différentes. La notion de tortuosité d'un milieu poreux est introduite théoriquement et discutée expérimentalement. This article is in two parts. The first part has to do with the theory of acoustic wave propagation in saturated porous media. Different existing methods are reviewed, and Biot's theory is critically developed in detail. In particular, the different results to which this theory leads are examined, and the conditions and geophysical problems on which the physical phenomena involved may have an appreciable effect are considered. The second part is devoted to the experimental check made by Plona (1980 of Biot's theory. After a qualitative introduction of the experimental procedure, the results obtained for many materials of different porosities are described. The concept of the tortuosity of a porous medium is introduced theoretically and discussed experimentally.

  1. Shock wave air dissociation and ionization; Dissociation et ionisation de l'air par une onde de choc

    Thouvenin, J. [Commissariat a l' energie atomique et aux energies alternatives - CEA (France)

    1959-07-01

    The composition and internal energy of air are computed for a range of temperature from 3 500 up to 11500 deg. K and a range of density from 4 up to 12 times normal density. In another connection, the increase of internal energy of air by a shock wave traveling through it is evaluated in terms of the same parameters. By adjusting both expressions of energy, a relation between the temperature T and the ratio of molecular volumes V{sub 0}/V ahead and behind the shock front is obtained. The others physical variables, pressure, front velocity, material velocity, degree of ionization, can be then computed if either of parameters T or V{sub 0}/V is known. Conversely, measurement of any one physical variable makes it possible to get values of all the others. Present calculations show the oxygen to be completely dissociated by strong shock waves (velocities above 7000 m/s), the nitrogen by a rate of 50 % higher, and the concentration of free electrons to be over 0,1 %. Reprint of a paper published in 'Le journal de physique et le radium', Tome 19, July 1958, p. 639-648 [French] La composition de l'air et la valeur de son energie interne sont calculees pour des temperatures allant de 3 500 a 11 500 deg. K et des densites de 4 a 12 fois superieures a la densite normale. D'autre part, on determine, en fonction des memes parametres, l'augmentation d'energie interne de l'air due au passage d'une onde de choc. En egalant les deux expressions de l'energie, on obtient une relation entre la temperature T et le rapport des volumes moleculaires V{sub 0}/ V devant et derriere le front de choc. Les valeurs des autres grandeurs physiques, pression, vitesse du front, vitesse d'ecoulement, taux d'ionisation dans le front, sont alors determinees si l'on connait l'un des parametres T ou V{sub 0}/ V. Inversement, la mesure de l'une quelconque de ces grandeurs physiques permet de fixer la valeur de toutes les autres. Le calcul montre que pour des chocs intenses (vitesses superieures a 7000 m

    'intensite d'emission correspond a 99.9 pc de la lumiere totale emise. Une etude a haute resolution demontre que seules les branches P lasent. Les maxima d'intensite correspondent aux 3 tetes de bande des branches P(Ω = 2), P(Ω = 1) et P(Ω = 0). La duree de l'impulsion laser est mesuree de deux manieres differentes, dans les deux cas la valeur mesuree est de 1 ns. La mesure de l'energie est realisee a l'aide de trois methodes differentes: la mesure photoelectrique, la microcalorimetrie et l'actinometrie chimique de Parker. Ces trois methodes donnent une valeur moyenne de l'ordre de 0,4 mJ (avec une tension de charge de 27 kV et pression d'azote d'environ 70 torr); dans de telles conditions la puissance crete delivree a chaque impulsion est de 400 kW. Pour montrer que ce laser est adapte a l'excitation et a l'etude de fluorescences de courtes durees de vie, nous l'avons utilise pour mesurer la duree de vie apparente de fluorescence de HFA (Hexafluoroacetone) a differentes pressions et pour plusieurs longueurs d'onde d'observation. Ce travail confirme les resultats de Ware: la duree de vie est independante, aux erreurs experimentales pres, de la pression de HFA sur un domaine de 20 a 400 torr et a une valeur moyenne de 87 ± 2 ns) (proche de la valeur donnee par WARE: 84 ± 2 ns). Les mesures ont ete effectuees a plusieurs longueurs d'onde d'observation (bande passante: Δλ = 6 nm); nous avons aussi verifie que la duree de vie etait la meme sur toute la bande d'emission dans ce domaine de pression. Cependant a basse pression (≤10 torr) avec un nouveau dispositif experimental, nous avons remarque que la duree de vie apparente de fluorescence commence a decroitre avec la pression pour certaines longueurs d'onde d'observation et passe de 80 ns a 70 torr a 56 ns a 0,5 torr; nos resultats, sont en accord avec le mecanisme photochimique propose par Ware.

  3. Scattering of electromagnetic waves by an non-uniform cylindrical plasma; Diffusion coherente d'une onde electromagnetique par un cylindre de plasma inhomogene

    1967-07-01

    The problem of the scattering of plane electromagnetic waves from a non-uniform, cylindrically symmetrical plasma is solved analytically, by a self-consistent field method, for a wave with the electric field parallel to the cylinder axis. Numerical results for the diffracted field are plotted for interesting ranges of the parameters involved: diameter, density on the axis, radial profile of the density, and collision frequencies. The case where the incident field is cylindric (waves surfaces parallel to the cylinder axis) is examined - this permits to connect theoretical calculations and experimental diffraction patterns, and also to explain the diffraction effects observed in a classical microwave interferometry experiment. These results, and the possibility of measuring exactly the diffracted field (showed by experiments with dielectric and metallic rods) lead to a new plasma diagnostic method, based on the diffraction, which has no theoretical limitations and it usable when the classical free-space wave methods are not (plasma diameter lower than 10 wave lengths). The feasibility of this method is tested with a plasma at atmospheric pressure and a 2 mm incident wavelength. The plasma is obtained by the laminar flow of a plasma torch, with a working gas (He or Ar) seeded by potassium (density continuously variable between 10{sup 11} and 10{sup 15} e/cm{sup 3}. Some diffraction patterns by this plasma and for various incident waves, are also given and explained with theoretical calculations.

    Full Text Available Le but premier de cette étude est de montrer la faisabilité du frittage direct en cavité micro-ondes monomode de deux biomatériaux céramiques : l'hydroxyapatite et le phosphate tri-calcique. Ainsi, cette étude montre que ce procédé a permis d'obtenir, en des temps très courts, inférieurs à 20 minutes, des échantillons denses présentant des microstructures fines. Les caractérisations mécaniques sur les échantillons frittés par micro-ondes ont révélé des valeurs de module d'élasticité et de dureté supérieures à celles généralement obtenues sur des échantillons frittés de manière conventionnelle. Ces résultats sont discutés en fonction de la microstructure obtenue et des différents paramètres expérimentaux : granulométrie des poudres, température de frittage, temps d'irradiation micro-ondes. The main purpose of this study consists in investigating the direct microwaves sintering in a single mode cavity of two bioceramics: hydroxyapatite and tri-calcium phosphate. Thus, dense samples presenting fine microstructures are successfully obtained in less than 20 minutes of irradiation. The resulting mechanical characterizations on microwaves sintered samples evidence higher Young's modulus and hardness values than those usually reported on conventionally sintered samples. Those results are discussed according to the microstructures observed and the experimental parameters such as powders granulometries, sintering temperatures, microwaves irradiation times.

    1989-12-21

    We present the study and the realization of a passively mode-locked dye laser producing pulses shorter than 100 femto-seconds (10{sup -13} s). In a ring cavity with an amplifier medium (Rhodamine 60) and a saturable absorber (DODCI), a sequence of four prisms controls the group velocity dispersion and allows the generation of very short pulses. Then we have studied the production of femtosecond pulses at other wavelengths directly from the femtosecond dye laser. For the first rime, 60 fs pulses at 685 nm and pulses shorter than 50 fs between 775 nm and 800 nm have been produced by passive mode locking. These near infrared pulses have been used to study the absorption saturation kinetics in semiconductors multiple quantum wells GaAs/GaAlAs. We have observed a singular behavior of the laser operating at 685 nm and analyzed the produced pulses in terms of optical solitons. To perform time resolved spectroscopy with shortest pulses, we have studied a pulse compressor and a multipass amplifier to increase the pulses energy. Pulses of 20 fs and 10 micro-joules (peak power: 0.5 GW) have been obtained at low repetition rate (10 Hz) and pulses of 16 fs and 0.6 micro-joules pulses have been generated at high repetition rate (11 kHz) using a copper vapor laser. These pulses have been used to study the absorption saturation kinetics of an organic dye (the Malachite Green).

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available The power management of a hybrid system composed of a fuel cell, a battery and a DC/DC power converter is developed. A decoupled control strategy is proposed, aimed at balancing the power flow between the stack and the battery and avoiding electrochemical damage due to low oxygen concentration in the fuel cell cathode. The controller is composed of two components. The first controller regulates the compressor, and as a consequence the oxygen supplied to the cathode, via a classic Proportional-Integral controller. The second controller optimally manages the current demanded by the fuel cell and battery via a linear-quadratic control strategy acting on the converter. An Extended Kalman Filter is also designed in order to estimate the battery State of Charge. The closed-loop performance was tested in simulation using a 310th-order system model. Ce papier illustre une stratégie de gestion de puissance pour un système hybride composé d’une pile à combustible, d’une batterie et d’un convertisseur DC/DC. Dans le but d’équilibrer les flux de puissance entre la pile à combustible et la batterie et d’éviter les dégâts causés par une dépression d’oxygène dans le cathode de la pile, un contrôleur découplé est proposé. Ce contrôleur se compose de deux parties. La première, un régulateur proportionnel-intégral, commande le compresseur et, par conséquent, le flux d’oxygène fourni au cathode. La deuxième, un régulateur linéaire-quadratique, gère le courant demandé par la pile à combustible et la batterie. Pour estimer l’état de charge de la batterie, un filtre de Kalman étendu a aussi été conçu. Les performances de la stratégie ont été analysées en simulation avec un modèle de batterie du 310e ordre.

  9. Maslov Shear-Waveforms in Highly Anisotropic Shales and Implications for Shear-Wave Splitting Analyses Formes d'onde transversales de Maslov dans les argiles fortement anisotropes et implications dans les analyses de biréfringence des ondes transversales

    énéralement anisotropes. Dans le présent article, nous calculons les formes d'onde sismiques pour des argiles fortement anisotropes en employant la théorie asymptotique de Maslov (MAT. Cette théorie est une extension de la théorie classique des rayons qui fournit des formes d'onde valides dans les zones des caustiques (repliement du front d'onde, là où les amplitudes de la théorie des rayons sont instables. La théorie asymptotique des rayons (ART est basée sur le rayon géométrique ou rayon de Fermat qui relie la source au récepteur. Par contre, la solution de Maslov intègre les données sur des rayons contigüs qui ne sont pas des rayons de Fermat. Les rayons, les temps de propagation, les amplitudes et les sismogrammes synthétiques sont présentés pour trois argiles fortement anisotropes en utilisant un modèle 1D très simple composé d'une argile anisotrope sus-jacente à une argile isotrope. Les formes d'onde ART ne réussissent pas à rendre compte des effets de formes d'onde complexes dues à la triplication. En comparaison, les formes d'onde MAT prévoient les amplitudes régulières aux sommets du front d'onde et les signaux diffractés à partir de ces sommets. Une solution de Maslov qui intègre les contributions des rayons sur une composante unique de lenteur se détériorera si les rayons se focalisent en 3D (sur un point plutôt que le long d'une ligne. Une des argiles testées exhibe cette caustique, et l'intégration sur deux composantes de lenteur est nécessaire pour éliminer la singularisation en amplitude. Nous examinons enfin les effets des triplications du front d'onde sur les rotations de Alford qui sont utilisées pour évaluer la biréfringence des ondes transversales. Dans de tels cas, la rotation trouve avec succés la polarisation de l'onde transversale rapide, mais elle peut s'avérer peu fiable pour l'estimation de l'écart de temps d'arrivée entre les deux ondes transversales.

    Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are common among US veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND). We postulated that these injuries may modulate pain processing in these individuals and affect their subjective pain levels. Cross-sectional. 310 deployed service members of OEF/OIF/OND without a lifetime history of moderate or severe TBI were included in this study. All participants completed a comprehensive evaluation for Blast Exposure, mTBI, PTSD, and Pain Levels. The Boston Assessment of TBI-Lifetime Version (BAT-L) was used to assess blast exposure and potential brain injury during military service. The Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) characterized presence and severity of PTSD. The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) was used to assess pain intensity over the previous month before the interview, with higher scores indicative of worse pain. Statistical analysis was performed by ANOVA and results were adjusted for co-morbidities, clinical characteristics and demographic data. In comparison to control participants (veterans without mTBI or current PTSD), veterans with both current PTSD and mTBI reported the highest pain intensity levels, followed by veterans with PTSD only (P Pain levels in veterans with mTBI only were comparable to control participants. Comorbid PTSD and mTBI is associated with increased self-reported pain intensity. mTBI alone was not associated with increased pain.

    Full Text Available Nous développons un système, dénommé SISMONAUTE, d'aide aux géophysiciens pour l'étude de la propagation des ondes dans un modèle postulé de sous-sol. Le système suit les fronts d'onde dans une série d'instantanés 2D produits par un simulateur numérique. De plus, il rétablit l'historique de l'onde, c'est-à-dire la séquence des réflexions, transmissions et diffractions qui représente des transformations qualitatives de l'onde. Cet historique est essentiel pour la comparaison des sismogrammes simulés et observés. Nous utilisons pour interpréter les données de simulation un système dirigé par les connaissances qui applique le raisonnement causal pour prédire, à chaque stade, de nouveaux fronts d'onde. Ces fronts prédits permettent une détection guidée des fronts d'onde sur les instantanés. We are developing a system, called SISMONAUTE, that supports a geophysicist in studying the propagation of waves in a postulated model of the subsoil. The system tracks the wave fronts in a sequence of 2D-snapshots produced by a numerical simulator. Furthermore, it recovers the history of a wave, i. e. the sequence of reflections, transmissions, and diffractions which represents qualitative changes of the wave. This history is essential for comparing simulated and observed seismograms. We use a knowledge-driven approach to interpret the simulated data. Using causal reasoning, the system predicts new wave fronts in each step. These predicted fronts enable a guided detection of wave fronts in the snapshots.

L'onde progressive est excitee a une frequence 2,4 MHz par un autogenerateur triphase d'une puissance d'environ 50 MW avec une duree d'impulsion comprise entre 250 et 350 {mu}s. Les pressions initiales etaient comprises entre 0,1 et 0,001 Tort, et le champ magnetique de haute frequence a la surface du plasma atteignait de 500 a '600 Oe. Dans ces conditions, les phenomenes essentiels qui determinent l'interaction sont lies aux effets non lineaires et avant tout a l'apparition d'une composante petmanente du courant longitudinal qui a atteint des valeurs de plusieurs milliers d'amperes. Au centre de la chambre, dans la zone des champs faibles, la conductivite du plasma etait de l'ordre de 3 a 4*10{sup 14} esu, ce qui pour un degre d'ionisation proche de 100% correspond a une temperature des electrons de 8 a 12 eV. Dans la zone des champs forts (zone de la couche ou se produit l'effet pelliculaite), la conductivite diminue d'un ordre de grandeur, ce qui produit une augmentation brutale de la puissance de haute frequence utilisable. Les auteurs ont decouvert aupres du courant longitudinal dans le plasma un champ magnetique longitudinal quasi stationnaire, forme par des courants transversaux. Ce champ a une structure complexe et il est possible qu'il soit conditionne, comme le montre la theorie de l'approximation, par un effet toroidal.

    This report gives the results of radiation measurements carried out on the first C.E.A. swimming-pool pile, Melusine. The purpose of these measurements, which were carried out during the starting-up period and the first ascents to 1 MW power, is to check the radiation intensity levels near the pile and from this to verify the safety calculation methods used. In addition certain special measurements, such as those performed in and above the water of the swimming-pool, in the channels and outside them etc..., should make it possible eventually to define the conditions under which the pile may be used for special jobs with less protection. In the first part of the report are given the results of radiation measurements carried out during runs at low power plateaux not exceeding 500 W: in particular measurements at variable water levels in the water of the swimming-pool and on the axis of the open channels. The results given in the second part deal with radiation measurements performed in various parts of the premises, studies on the activation of the plugs in the experimental channels and of the materials in the forward compartment, and also of the radioactivity of the swimming-pool water and the air used to cool the channels. (author) [French] Le present rapport a pour but de donner les resultats des mesures de rayonnement effectuees aupres de la premiere pile piscine du C.E.A.: la pile Melusine. Le but de ces mesures, effectuees pendant la periode de demarrage et les premieres montees a la puissance de 1 MW, est de controler les niveaux d'intensite de rayonnement aupres de la pile et par la de juger des methodes de calculs de protection utilisees. D'autre part, certaines mesures plus particulieres, telles que celles effectuees dans l'eau et au-dessus de l'eau de la piscine, dans les canaux et a l'exterieur de ceux-ci, etc..., doivent permettre de definir ulterieurement les conditions d'utilisation de la pile pour des fonctionnements particuliers avec des protections

    The problem of the application of micro-wave techniques to the study of plasma properties is considered in this report. In section I, the author summarizes a few fundamental laws concerning the theory of waves in an ionised medium as well as measurable effects of transverse and longitudinal propagation. Section II is a rapid review of the experimental methods and of the various measurements which may be effected in very high frequency plasmas. Only recent experimental work carried out since the last U. R.S.I. Assembly is considered. Section III is devoted to micro-wave techniques developed during this period in the laboratories of the Applied Physics Service. These techniques deal with longitudinal propagation and in particular with the propagation along a right mode. Section IV is a general view of similar studies undertaken in European Research Centres working on plasma physics or controlled fusion. Section V is a contribution concerning three particular topics from the Juelich and Max Planck Institute laboratories.

  18. Departure from Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium in argon plasmas sustained in a Torche à Injection Axiale sur Guide d'Ondes

    2015-01-01

    Plasma torches are suitable plasma sources for a wide range of applications. The capability of these discharges to produce processes like sample excitation or decomposition of molecules inside them depends on the density of the plasma species and their energies (temperatures). The relation between these parameters determines the specific state of thermodynamic equilibrium in the discharge. Thus, the understanding of plasma possibilities for application purposes is related to the knowledge of the plasma thermodynamic equilibrium degree. In this paper a discussion about the equilibrium state for Ar plasmas generated by using a Torche à Injection Axiale sur Guide d'Ondes, TIAGO device, is presented. Emission spectroscopy techniques were used to measure gas temperature and electron density at the exit of the nozzle torch and along the dart. Boltzmann-plots as well as b p parameters were calculated to characterize the type and degree of departure from partial Local Saha Equilibrium (pLSE). This study indicates that the closer situation to Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (LTE) of the plasma corresponds to larger Ar flows which highlights the importance of the nitrogen (atmosphere surrounding the plasma) in the kinetics of Ar-TIAGO discharges. - Highlights: • Discharges sustained in Ar using a TIAGO Torch show a significant departure from Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium. • Nitrogen entrance from surrounding air highly influences Thermodynamic Equilibrium. • Departure from LTE has been studied by means of Boltzmann plots and b p parameters. • The discharge is ionizing at the nozzle exit plasma, while along the dart it becomes recombining

This method, including at the beginning a delocalization of electrons over all the molecular system, two methods which clear out bonding and anti-bonding interactions have been studied and programmed: a) overlap population analysis, b) localisation of molecular orbitals. These methods have been carried out in the case of organic compounds and free radicals.

    Using the Vlasov equation we calculate and discuss non-linear coupling equations between three electronic plasma waves (Langmuir waves) which propagate in a cylindrical plasma column confined by a strong magnetic field. We study, in the experimental device EOS, along the magnetic field, the disintegration of a Langmuir wave excited in the plasma column by means of an antenna. Space structure measurements for various waves show that the resonance conditions (selection rules) are satisfied. The measured disintegration threshold is in agreement with the theoretical value within 30 per cent and shows that this non linear mechanism appears when the oscillating density to the mean density ratio is about 10{sup -3} to 10{sup -2}. The variation of the spatial growth rate as a function of the amplitude of the disintegrated wave shows that the resulting waves are correlated in groups of three along the magnetic field even though the disintegrating spectrum appears in a wide frequency band.

    In the framework of research carried out on a CO{sub 2}-cooled power reactor moderated by heavy water, the so-called 'pressure vessel' solution involves the total integration of the core, of the primary circuit (exchanges and blowers) and of the fuel handling machine inside a single, strong, sealed vessel made of pre-stressed concrete. A vertical design has been chosen: the handling 'attic' is placed above the core, the exchanges being underneath. This solution makes it possible to standardize the type of reactor which is moderated by heavy-water or graphite and cooled by a downward stream of carbon dioxide gas; it has certain advantages and disadvantages with respect to the pressure tube solution and these are considered in detail in this report. Extrapolation presents in particular.problems due specifically to the heavy water (for example its cooling,its purification, the balancing of the pressures of the heavy water and of the gas, the assembling of the internal structures, the height of the attic, etc. (authors) [French] Dans le cadre des etudes d'un reacteur de puissance modere a l'eau lourde et refroidi-au gaz carbonique, la solution dite 'en caisson' consiste en une integration totale du coeur, du circuit primaire (echangeurs et soufflantes) et du dispositif de manutention du combustible a l'interieur d'un meme caisson etanche et resistant en beton precontraint.

The measurements relate to the absorbed dose rates in the premises, the water activation and the atmospheric contamination. The influence of the heat layer of water movements and the water rate in the core chimney on the absorbed dose rate at the footbridge level overhanging the pile core has been studied. The modifications to the protection devices that have been proposed after the measurements and the effect of these modifications on the results of the measures are given then. The regeneration process of a water purification chain has been examined from the radiation protection point of view. It has been possible to make some twenty radionuclides obvious in the produced effluents and to determine the volume activity of these effluents for each radionuclide. The whole of results show that in a general way, the irradiation levels are low during the usual reactor functioning.

    In the framework of research carried out on a CO{sub 2}-cooled power reactor moderated by heavy water, the so-called 'pressure vessel' solution involves the total integration of the core, of the primary circuit (exchanges and blowers) and of the fuel handling machine inside a single, strong, sealed vessel made of pre-stressed concrete. A vertical design has been chosen: the handling 'attic' is placed above the core, the exchanges being underneath. This solution makes it possible to standardize the type of reactor which is moderated by heavy-water or graphite and cooled by a downward stream of carbon dioxide gas; it has certain advantages and disadvantages with respect to the pressure tube solution and these are considered in detail in this report. Extrapolation presents in particular.problems due specifically to the heavy water (for example its cooling,its purification, the balancing of the pressures of the heavy water and of the gas, the assembling of the internal structures, the height of the attic, etc. (authors) [French] Dans le cadre des etudes d'un reacteur de puissance modere a l'eau lourde et refroidi-au gaz carbonique, la solution dite 'en caisson' consiste en une integration totale du coeur, du circuit primaire (echangeurs et soufflantes) et du dispositif de manutention du combustible a l'interieur d'un meme caisson etanche et resistant en beton precontraint. La disposition envisagee est verticale; le grenier de manutention est dispose au-dessus du coeur, les echangeurs en dessous. Cette solution, qui permet d'uniformiser les types de reacteurs moderes a l'eau lourde ou au graphite et refroidis par une circulation descendante de gaz carbonique presente, par rapport a la solution a tube de force, des avantages et des inconvenients qui sont analyses dans cette etude.

    2010-04-01

    Cet article constitue une contribution originale et importante à la compréhension à la fois théorique et expérimentale des métamatériaux en micro-ondes et en infrarouge. Nous avons réalisé et caractérisé sur silicium des nano-structures metallo-diélectriques, briques de base des métamatériaux infrarouge et optique. Des caractérisations optiques exhaustives ont été réalisées pour la première fois sur ces structures en amplitude et en phase par interférométrie. Des topologies plus simples de métamatériaux d’un point de vue technologique et des performances optiques ont été introduites, et leur potentiel démontré dans la réalisation de fonctions aussi complexes que la réfraction négative, le couplage de mode plasmoniques, les nano senseurs pour la biologie et l’invisibilité électromagnétique en infrarouge. Les transformations d’espace, et le nouveau paradigme qu’elles offrent à l’optique, rendant possible une ingénierie de l’espace pour les photons ainsi que leur implémentation par métamatériaux ont été présentés par la première démonstration expérimentale d’une cape d’invisibilité non magnétique.

    The outline of a method is presented for calculating the characteristics of a shock wave produced by an underground nuclear explosion (pressure, wave velocity, velocity of the medium, energy left in the medium by the shock, etc.). By means of an application to a granitic medium and of a comparison with results obtained during French nuclear explosions, it has been possible to show the good agreement existing between the calculations and the experimental results. The advantages of such a method for studying the industrial applications of underground nuclear explosions are stressed.

    Experimental results of pion-nucleon elastic scattering below 1.6 GeV (total cross sections, angular distributions of elastic scattering and recoil nucleon polarizations) have been described by a partial wave analysis. This analysis has been developed, one energy at a time, with a method of least squares fits. A single solution is extracted by continuity with energy of the different solutions. Resonating behaviour has been clearly established for several partial waves. In addition to these important effects some phase shifts show rapid variations with energy. Present experimental situation does not permit to say whether these variations are due to experimental biases or to physical effects. (author) [French] Les resultats experimentaux de la diffusion elastique meson {pi} - nucleon au-dessous de 1.6 GeV (sections efficaces totales, distributions angulaires de diffusion elastique et de polarisation du nucleon de recul) sont decrits a l'aide d'une analyse en ondes partielles. Cette analyse est developpee energie par energie au moyen d'une methode d'ajustement en moindres carres. Un critere empirique de continuite des solutions en fonction de l'energie a permis d'isoler une solution unique. Des resonances sont clairement etablies pour plusieurs ondes partielles, ainsi que certains petits effets moins caracteristiques. Pour ceux-ci, la situation experimentale presente ne permet pas d'affirmer s'ils sont dus a des effets physiques ou a des biais experimentaux. (auteur)

    The design of a two-halves zero-energy fast reactor is briefly described, particular emphasis being placed on those features which determine the practicability and precision of reactor physics measurements. The advantages and disadvantages of the design are discussed with reference to the two years' operating experience of the reactor. The following topics are dealt with: the experimental convenience of the lay-out and of the two halves design; the size and precision of the fuel pieces and the accuracy of location of the fuel elements; the effects of edge irregularities and heterogeneity of structure on the accuracy with which the critical mass of an 'ideal' equivalent assembly is determined; reproducibility of the critical condition after dismantling the assembly, or separating the two halves; variation of reactivity with separation of the halves, including effects of asymmetric loading; sensitivity of various counters, neutron source strength, use of an accelerator neutron source; speed of response of safety circuits and consequent restrictions on rate of assembly of the two halves; additional precautions necessary in using plutonium fuel; and notes on the accuracy of measurement of reactivity and on the practical limitations affecting various other reactor physics measurements.

    In a high flux pile the presence of local absorbers makes the power difficult to measure. In any case thermodynamic measurements are sometimes not very accurate. Another possible method could be the measurement of the cooling fluid activity. This has been tried on the heavy water circuit of EL3. In the first part of this report we give some qualitative indications of the various activities present in the heavy water in circulation. After this, the activity of the element chosen has been calculated. Finally, the results obtained from EL3 are given. (author) [French] Dans une pile a haut flux, la presence d'absorbeurs localises rend la mesure de la puissance difficile. Les mesures thermodynamiques sont par ailleurs parfois peu precises.

Dans une premiere partie, nous donnons quelques indications qualitatives sur les diverses activites presentes dans l'eau lourde en circulation.

Cette etude a ete completee par une evaluation de l'importance de l'effet Doppler sur un grand nombre de reacteurs de ce type. Les auteurs demontrent qu'il est fort peu probable qu'une fusion se produise, du fait que la conjonction des circonstances qui pourraient la provoquer est difficilement realisable. L'expose du mecanisme de fusion est suivi de l'analyse des resultats de calculs couples neutronique-hydrodynamiqu e relatifs a deux reacteurs de puissance zero. On a choisi pour cette etude un coeur de 1200 l, qui correspond a un reacteur relativement grand a coeur normal. L'etude a egalement porte sur un coeur plus petit ayant un coefficient cavitaire plus important, qui pourrait presenter un plus grand danger. Chaque systeme a eu un comportement en fonction du temps tout a fait different. Si un accident grave survient dans un reacteur de puissance zero, les atomes de {sup 235}U, isoles dans les plaques d'uranium enrichi, s'echauffen t tres rapidement tandis que le reste du coeur demeure pratiquement froid; il y a ainsi formation d'un gaz du {sup 235}U qui donne lieu a la pression de rupture. Les auteurs expliquent l'adaptation qu'ils ont faite du code AX-I de neutronique-hydrodynamiqu e pour l'appliquer a un gaz de Van der Waals. Une autre modification importante de l'equation d'etat utilisee dans ce code consiste a employer une equation du type Mie-Grueneisen, derivee de la theorie de l'etat solide. Cette modification permet d'evaluer de facon plus satis- faisante le terme de pression pour les coeurs de composition variable.

    -organized criticality. The next step is to employ these techniques to model, monitor, and predict the effects of changing conditions on the deformation of the rockmass. On pourrait avancer que l'anisotropie dans la biréfringence des ondes transversales n'a pas répondu à ses promesses initiales, à savoir ouvrir une nouvelle voie dans la compréhension des phénomènes de fissures et de contraintes dans la croûte terrestre. Dans cet article sont présentés deux développements révélés récemment, qui paraissent raviver ces premiers espoirs et apportent des opportunités nouvelles pour le contrôle, la modélisation et même la prévision des déformations (avant fracture dans les roches microfracturées et saturées de fluides. Ainsi, un modèle de poroélasticité (APE développé récemment concerne l'évolution sous contraintes des roches microfracturées et saturées en fluide et reproduit une large gamme de phénomènes, qui seraient autrement inexpliqués ou dissociés, et semble être une bonne approximation au premier ordre de l'évolution des roches microfracturées et saturées en fluide. Puisque les paramètres qui contrôlent à petite échelle la déformation (avant fracture contrôlent aussi la biréfringence des ondes transversales, il apparaît que l'évolution des roches microfracturées et saturées peut être aussi directement contrôlée par cette biréfringence et que la réponse à des changements futurs peut être prédite par l'APE. Le bon usage de la modélisation de l'APE et des observations de la biréfringence des ondes transversales implique que la plupart des roches soient proches d'un stade de fracturation critique associé à une percolation limite, situation où la résistance aux contraintes transversales disparaît et où les fractures transversales peuvent se propager. Ceci corrobore une autre hypothèse concernant la mise en situation critique spontanée des roches in situ. La conséquence de cette identification est que la physique à petite

    ) using a procedure similar to the physical theory of diffraction (PTD). The refined KA provides an improvement of the prediction in the near field of a rigid scatterer. The initial (non refined) KA model is then extended to deal with the scattering from a finite impedance target. The obtained model, the so-called 'general' KA model, is a satisfactory solution for the application to telemetry. Finally, the coupling of the stochastic propagation model and the general KA diffraction model has allowed us to build a complete simulation tool for the telemetry in an inhomogeneous medium. (author) [French] Cette etude s'inscrit dans le cadre du developpement d'outils de simulation de la telemetrie qui est une technique possible pour la surveillance et le controle periodique des reacteurs nucleaires a neutrons rapides refroidis par du sodium liquide (RNR-Na). De maniere generale, la telemetrie consiste a positionner au sein du reacteur un transducteur qui genere un faisceau ultrasonore. Ce faisceau se propage a travers un milieu inhomogene et aleatoire car le sodium liquide est le siege de fluctuations de temperature qui impliquent une variation de la celerite des ondes ultrasonores, ce qui modifie la propagation du faisceau. Ce dernier interagit ensuite avec une structure immergee dans le reacteur. La mesure du temps de vol de l'echo recu par le meme transducteur permet de determiner la position precise de la structure. La simulation complete de la telemetrie necessite donc la modelisation a la fois de la propagation d'une onde acoustique en milieu inhomogene aleatoire et de l'interaction de cette onde avec des cibles de formes variees; c'est l'objectif de ce travail.

    Mari J. L.

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available Classiquement, la technique de filtrage utilisant la matrice spectrale proposée par Mermoz ne permet une séparation automatique des ondes au sens des indicatrices sismiques que dans certains cas particuliers, à savoir lorsque les ondes à séparer sont naturellement alignées sur les vecteurs propres de la matrice spectrale. Dans les autres cas, nous montrons que l'introduction d'information a priori sur la vitesse apparente de quelques ondes et une limitation de la durée temporelle de ces dernières permettent d'estimer leurs vecteurs d'ondes. L'utilisation de ces vecteurs et une technique de projection au sens des moindres carrés conduit à une extraction optimale de ces ondes, sans dégrader les autres ondes. La technique de filtrage proposée a été appliquée sur des données sismiques de type PSV (profil sismique vertical déporté. Le PSV a été enregistré dans un puits entre les cotes 1050 m et 1755 m; la source est déportée de 654 m par rapport à la tête de puits. L'outil utilisé est un géophone de puits à trois composantes. Le puits traverse une structure géologique complexe. Le traitement réalisé a mis en évidence des réflexions sismiques d'ondes de compression et de cisaillement, associées à des marqueurs fortement pentés (10 à 25°. Après estimation des champs de vitesse et des pendages à l'aide d'abaques, la migration en profondeur des horizons temps pointés a permis d'obtenir un modèle structural faillé. Detailed structural analysis can be achieved by using 3-component vertical seismic profiling method which gives structural information at several hundred meters from the wellhead. The use of an offset VSP on the Auzance structure has led to obtain a structural model composed by faulted dipping reflectors. This is due to the robust nature of the wave separation method which is based on the spectral matrix and uses an a priori information. This method preserves the true amplitude and the local apparent

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available L'utilisation d'outils acoustiques à émetteurs-récepteurs multiples et enregistrement numérique permet de faire une microsismique de puits en utilisant des techniques de traitement dérivées du traitement sismique. Comme les enregistrements acoustiques sont composés de différents types d'ondes (ondes de volume réfractées ou réfléchies et ondes d'interface, une étape importante du traitement acoustique est la séparation des ondes. Cet article montre que la séparation des ondes peut être optimisée en fonction du choix du type de collection des enregistrements acoustiques et de la performance des algorithmes utilisés, dépendante du nombre de traces par collection. Les différents types de collection sont la collection émetteur ou récepteur commun et la collection à déport constant. Trois exemples de traitement de diagraphie acoustique sont présentés. Le premier exemple montre que les interférences des ondes qui conduisent à des anomalies sur l'estimation des logs acoustiques tels que le log de lenteur (Delta t sont réduites après une bonne séparation des ondes. Le deuxième exemple est un exemple d'imagerie en puits vertical. Le traitement par filtrage de Wiener sur une section à déport constant permet de différencier les modes réfractés et d'interface des diffractions profondes (environ 4 m créées par la présence d'intercalations dolomitiques en milieu argileux. Le troisième exemple est un exemple d'imagerie en puits horizontal. Le traitement est réalisé sur une collection point de tir commun.

    Young's double-slit experiment realized with particles sent one at a time through an interferometer is at the heart of quantum mechanics. The striking feature is that the phenomenon of interference, interpreted as a wave following simultaneously two paths, is incompatible with our common sense representation of a particle following one route or the other but not both. The work described in this book is dedicated to the study of wave-particle duality for a single photon emitted by the triggered photoluminescence of a single NV color center in a diamond nanocrystal. We first present the realization of a single-photon interference experiment using a Fresnel's biprism, in a scheme equivalent to the standard Young's double-slit textbook experiment. We then discuss the complementarity between interference and which-path information in this two-path interferometer. We finally describe the experimental realization of Wheeler's delayed-choice gedanken experiment, which is a fascinating and subtle illustration of wave-particle duality. In such experiment, the choice either to observe interference fringes, obviously associated to a wave-like behavior, or to know which path of the interferometer has been followed, according to a particle-like behavior, is made whereas the photon has already entered into the interferometer. Furthermore, the choice is made by a quantum random number generator and is relativistically separated from the entering of the photon into the interferometer. The results of that experiment show once again that no classical physical reality can be attributed to the photon independent of the measurement apparatus, as stated by the complementarity principle. La théorie quantique nécessite de renoncer à certaines images classiques héritées du sens commun. Elle stipule en particulier une description duale de la lumière et de la matière, présentant simultanément les propriétés d'une onde et d'une particule et conduisant ainsi à des repr

La primera caracteriza su estructura como una narrativa transmedia, un formato resultante de la cultura de la convergencia, la que emerge en nuestro tiempo con la masificación de contenidos y medios de comunicación que nos circundan. Ello hace que los diversos textos existentes necesiten de la actuación del televidente para tejerlos y, así, crear nuevos significados. Además, algunos elementos presentes en la serie se muestran correlacionados a temas abordados por la postmodernidad; de esa forma, se propone demostrar cómo la narrativa presentada reproduce situaciones de la realidad en su ficción, lo que proporciona una identificación del sujeto postmoderno con la serie.

    Reactivity effects of voids in a reactor core is of particular importance in boiling-water reactors. Non-uniform distributions of voids make it desirable to know and understand the spatial dependence of the void reactivity effect. An experimental study of void effects under physically clean conditions has been undertaken in NORA. Shrouds surrounding each individual fuel stringer define annular regions which are voided by introduction of air under pressure. For single-rod experiments reactivity effects are so small that it is preferable to oscillate the void volume periodically and analyse the corresponding modulation of power to obtain reactivity equivalents. Multiple-rod experiments are done statically. The experimental technique is described together with examples of its use to measure single-rod void effects, voided rod interactions, and full-voided core effects. (author) [French] L'effet cavitaire revet une importance particuliere dans les reacteurs a eau bouillante. Etant donne que les cavites ne sont pas uniformement reparties, il est souhaitable de connaitre et de comprendre les variations de l'effet cavitaire dans l'espace.

Dans les regions tubulaires comprises entre les barres de combustible et leurs enveloppes, on cree des cavites par injection d'air comprime. Dans les experiences portant sur une seule barre, l'effet est si faible qu'il vaut mieux faire varier periodiquement le volume cavitaire et analyser la modulation de puissance correspondante pour mesurer la reactivite equivalente.

    This paper deals with the use of pre-stressed concrete for the G2 and G3 reactors at Marcoule and for the EDF3 reactor now under construction at Chinon. The first two reactors have been operating at power since 1959 and 1960 respectively. Messrs. Conte and Dambrine discuss the problems that arose during construction of the vessels for G2 and G3 and also deal with the experience gained in operation - experience which suggests that they are extremely safe- Work on the EDF3 vessel, begun at Chinon in the second half of 1961, is still under way and should be finished towards the end of 1963. Mr. Gaussot discusses the reasons for choosing this type of vessel, the results of calculations and mock-up tests, and the problems presented by the construction itself. A number of studies have been devoted to the future prospects of prestressed concrete structures for reactors. It would seem that working pressures could be increased, if desired, and, in any case, that dimensions could be considerably enlarged, thus offering the chance of integral-type solutions.

Les resultats de ces experiences ont ete utilises pour determiner les laplaciens de reacteurs de production que l'on se proposait de construire, mais ils ont servi egalement a ameliorer les connaissances dans le domaine de la physique de ces systemes. On s'est rendu compte tres rapidement qu'en raison des dimensions des assemblages et de leur manque de sensibilite aux petites perturbations localisees du systeme, l'experience exponentielle n'a qu'une utilite limitee. On a donc envisage de mettre au point des experiences integrales avec un reacteur de maniere a reduire au minimum la quantite de matieres necessaires pour se procurer des donnees valables. A cet effet, on a construit une installation critique perfectionnee a plusieurs regions, qu'on a appelee 'reacteur d'etude des constantes physiques' (RECP), dont on s'est servi pour determiner les constantes physiques de plusieurs reacteurs de puissance. On s'en est servi aussi couramment pour mesurer des sections efficaces et determiner des parametres differentiels et integraux de la physique des reacteurs pour divers types de milieux multiplicateurs. Apres la construction de RECP, on a encore employe les experiences exponentielles, bien que RECP ait largement comble les espoirs qui avaient ete places en lui.

    It was found that, for solids and more particularly for metals, in huge fields of shock pressure, the wave velocity is a linear function of the material velocity. A theoretical calculation allows to demonstrate this linear law and to calculate its parameters which are compared to experimental data.

    Radiotracer techniques have been applied to the study of lubrication and wear in large diesel engines on a scale not before considered practical, with perfect safety and with unique technological results. Both lubricating-oil consumption and cylinderliner wear have been evaluated as a function of operating conditions on diesel engines in the 1000 HP range. Techniques were developed for tapping 200 gal (US) of lubricating oil with 60 mc of zinc-65 and determining oil consumption by sampling exhaust gas during operation under a variety of conditions. Measurement of the rate of lubeoil consumption could be made in 10 min rather than the 24 to 48 h previously required. Irradiation techniques were developed for neutron activation of the lower cylinder portion of a 48-in long, 8-in diam. cylinder liner. Suitable thermal-neutron shielding allowed production of 300-d manganese-54 which resulted in extending the useful life of the liner for wear studies by a factor of six to eight over that of a comparable liner thermally activated to produce iron-59. The fact that studies with such large quantities of radioactive material can be carried out in standard research facilities in the diesel engine field opens an entirely new area to tracer applications. Selective activation and judicious use of thermalneutron shielding increases the versatility of the tracer technique in localizing measurement to areas of interest, reducing the total quantity of radioactive material required in wear studies of large parts, and facilitating simultaneous wear-measurement on engine parts of identical chemical composition.

We have now designed ion sources for highly focused ion beam devices, ion beam machining ion guns, or thin film deposition machines. We will mainly present new capabilities opened by the use of a multi-beam system for thin film deposition based on sputtering by medium energy ion beams. With the new concept of multi-beam sputtering (MBS), it is possible to open new possibilities concerning the ion beam sputtering (IBS) technology, especially for large size deposition of high uniformity thin films. By the use of multi-spots of evaporation, each one corresponding to an independent tuning of an individual COMIC ion source, it will be very easy to co-evaporate different components.

On a pu ainsi, dans un plasma d'hydrogene cree dans une decharge a cathode chaude, etudier le mecanisme de l'interaction entre les ondes et les particules dans deux cas: - dans le premier cas, les conditions necessaires pour l'application de la theorie quasi lineaire sont sensiblement verifiees. On a pu dans ce cas suivre avec precision le developpement de l'instabilite et la deformation de la fonction de distribution qui en resulte. On a montre que dans ce cas le mecanisme decrit par la theorie quasi lineaire etait qualitativement et quantitativement verifie; - dans le second cas, l'interaction entre les ondes et les electrons est beaucoup plus forte que celle qui est decrite par la theorie quasi lineaire et se traduit en particulier par une ionisation assez importante du gaz neutre. On a pu montrer cependant que dans ce cas encore le mecanisme decrit par la theorie quasi lineaire reste qualitativement valable. (auteur)

    The effect of a circularly polarized wave on a cylindrical plasma in a axial magnetostatic field and a radial space-charge field proportional to r is studied. Single particle motion is considered. The electrostatic field produces a shift in the cyclotron resonance frequency and,in case of high charge density, a radial movement of the off-resonance particles. In these conditions a radio-frequency-particle resonance is also possible called 'drift-resonance'. The drift resonance can be produced, with whistler mode, and may be employed in ion acceleration. Afterwards parametrical resonances produced by space-charge field oscillations and collisional limits of theory are studied. Cases in which ion acceleration is possible are considered on the basis of a quantitative analysis of results. (author) [French] On etudie l'effet d'une onde polarisee circulairement sur un plasma cylindrique place dans un champ magnetique axial constant, en supposant etre en presence d'un, champ de charge d'espace radial proportionnel a r. L'etude est faite du point de vue de la particule individuelle. Le champ electrostatique deplace la frequence de resonance cyclotron et, dans le cas de forte densite, donne lieu a un mouvement radial des particules qui ne sont pas en resonance. Dans ces champs, il peut aussi se produire une resonance qu'on a appele 'de derive', entre un R.F. et la particule. Cette resonance peut se produire avec le mode siffleur et peut etre utilisee pour l'acceleration des ions. On considere ensuite les resonances parametriques, qui se manifestent lorsque le champ de charge d'espace oscille, et les limites a la theorie posees par les collisions. Une discussion quantitative des resultats fait ressortir les cas dans lesquels on peut accelerer les ions. (auteur)

The laboratory EPM-Matformag is committed to produce such materials according to three different methods (zone melting, solidification controlled by a magnetic field, crystal growth from a seed). The results obtained show that it is possible by such methods to elaborate a material with high performances at the centimeter scale and to produce it in series. The availability of such materials allows the measure of physical properties on a large scale and the testing of prototypes for cryo-electrotechnical applications (magnetic bearing, flywheel, coupling device, current lead...). Les applications industrielles des matériaux supraconducteurs massifs YBa_2Cu_3O_7 impliquent de contrôler la croissance de larges monodomaines orientés dans des échantillons de grande taille (plusieurs centimètres). Le laboratoire EPM-Matformag s'est appliqué à produire de tels matériaux selon trois techniques différentes (fusion de zone, solidification contrôlée sous champ magnétique, croissance cristalline à partir d'un germe). Les résultats obtenus montrent qu'il est possible par de telles techniques d'obtenir un matériau performant à l'échelle des centimètres et de le produire en série. La disponibilité de tels matériaux permet de mesurer des propriétés physiques à grande échelle et de tester des prototypes d'applications cryo-électrotechniques (palier magnétique, volant d'inertie, coupleur, amenée de courant, limiteur de courant...).

    construit une machine a miroirs puisee pour etudier la stabilite d'un plasma d'energie relativement faible. Le plasma de 70 eV, forme dans un canon, est canalise ven le miroir par un champ de guidage octopolaire lineaire. La duree du champ du miroir est egale au temps de transit du plasma. Les auteurs ont mesure des densites d'electrons de 10{sup 13} cm{sup -3} dans le plan central du miroir. Ils ont observe deux modes distincts de fonctionnement qui ne dependent que des conditions regnant dans le champ de guidage. Dans le premier mode, le plasma dans le miroir ne semble pas presenter d'instabilite en cannelures, la plus grande partie du plasma d'echappe le long de l'axe', on observe une diffusion radiale anormale lente, il se produit une emission de micro-ondes dont les frequences sont des harmoniques de la frequence cyclotronique des electrons dans l'intervalle entre n = 1 et n = 19 au moins. L'emission de micro-ondes n'est pas compatible avec la branche electronique de l'instabilite de Harris. Les auteurs attribuent la stabilite de ce mode a la fixation des lignes de force par le plasma froid diffusant de la region du champ de guidage. Ils ont observe des densites d'electrons superieurs a 10{sup 11} cm{sup 3} pendant 200 {mu}s dans la region situee entre le miroir et le champ de guidage. La presence d'un cylindre de symetrie axiale dans le champ de guidage a pour effet de diminuer cette densite. Des mesures faites dans cette region fournissent des densites inferieures a 10u cm{sup 3}apres 40 {mu}s. Le plasma qui en resulte, piege dans le miroir, presente des instabilites en cannelures, des pertes de plasma radiales, une emission de micro-ondes irreguliere intense, ainsi qu'une decroissance de densite rapide. Les auteurs ont identifie la cannelure m = 1, dont ils ont suivi la phase dans l'angle 4{pi}. La vitesse de phase possede la meme direction que la derive electronique sous l'influence de B.

    Full Text Available Considerada ponto de convergência entre uma medicina mais mística e uma medicina mais objetiva, a Anatomia e a dissecação traçam uma trajetória sócio-histórica de proximidade com a profissão médica, constituindo parte da racionalidade profissional, justificando-se sua constância nos currículos médicos pela imprescindibilidade de conhecer o corpo-máquina humano para a plena execução das atividades profissionais. Esta dissertação visa caracterizar a Anatomia Humana como disciplina no contexto da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo no período de cátedra de Renato Locchi (19371955. Propõe-se a distinguir as características iniciais da constituição da Anatomia Humana enquanto disciplina nesta instituição; determinar seu espaço de legitimidade curricular; estabelecer seus elementos constitutivos diante da documentação analisada; e discutir possíveis permanências e rupturas na disciplina empreendida por Renato Locchi. Utilizamos como base as teorias da construção sócio-histórica das disciplinas escolares, notadamente as discussões de André Chervel e Ivor Goodson, de onde elencamos os elementos constitutivos de uma disciplina, categorias que utilizamos como base para a análise da documentação resgatada nos acervos do Museu de Anatomia Humana "Alfonso Bovero" do ICB/USP, do Museu Histórico "Carlos da Silva Lacaz" e da Assessoria Técnica Acadêmica, ambos da FMUSP. Tendo como base a análise de fontes primárias, traçamos uma disciplina com forte retórica legitimadora empreendida por Renato Locchi, que distingue o espaço-tempo da cadeira em duas vertentes: a anatomia como campo de pesquisa e a anatomia escolar, esta composta por seleções históricas mediadas pela primeira.

Les resultats obtenus a basse temperature, completes par des donnees sur les caracteristiques magnetiques, ont permis d'evaluer les diverses constantes d'echange dans MnF{sub 2} avec une certaine precision. En utilisant ces constantes, l'auteur a employe le formalisme de l'onde de spin pour substances antiferromagnetiques, decrit par Oguchi, pour prevoir theoriquement comment varie la dispersion de l'onde de spin en fonction de la temperature. Aucun des parametres mis enjeu n'est superflu, et les courbes theoriques de dispersion peuvent etre comparees aux resultats experimentaux pour des temperatures plus elevees en vue de verifier la theorie de l'onde de spin. L'auteur a evalue numeriquement les energies d'onde de spin et integre sur la zone de Brillouin, evitant ainsi tout developpement en serie selon la temperature. Ils a tenu compte des interactions dynamiques entre paires d'ondes de spin, mais il a neglige les effets cinematiques. Les energies d'onde de spin ont fait l'objet d'une renormalisation. C'est la un facteur important pour T/T{sub N} Greater-Than-Or-Equal-To Vulgar-Fraction-One-Half . La concordance entre la theorie et les resultats experimentaux demeure, en fait, remarquable jusqu'a des temperatures correspondant a environ 90% du point de NeeL II serait dangereux d'extrapoler ces resultats en vue de les utiliser pour des systemes a spin plus faible, car les effets cinematiques joueraient probablement un role beaucoup plus important dans ces cas. En ce qui concerne MnF{sub 2}, ou S= 5/2, une evaluation grossiere laisse supposer que les effets cinematiques seront peu importants jusqu'a M/M{sub O}-20%, ce qui ne se produit que dans les limites d'un degre environ du point de Neel, L'auteur discute brievement les consequences que peut avoir un terme d'echange biquadratique dans MnF{sub 2}; il conclut que, si cet echange existe, il est tres

  14. Methode unifiee de simulation et de conception des convertisseurs de puissance

    Fortin Blanchette, Handy

    High frequency power converters are now master piece in emerging new renewable energy applications such as hybrid vehicules. These new technologies merge the power of electrical machine with the thermal motor power. The power converters used to control those electrical machines are embeded technologies with high efficiency conversion and a high reliability. More than ground vehicule applications, embeded power converters are now present in aeronautic and aerospace domains. In this sense, high reliability and high efficiency are now important characteristics that are not only suitable but needed. In spite of this progression, power converters development remains today a complex science. Even if advanced complex techniques are now available to increase the converter stability, there are no systemic rules to design the converter physical assembly. Very often, an artistic approach is used to place the components inside the converter in the more convenient places. This lack of rigor about EMI problems is not so surprising because this kind of analysis is costly and risky. In general, to solve this type of problems, one designs a second and a third printed circuit generation which is not necessarily a quick and systematic approach. To overcome these difficulties, the main goal of this thesis is to provide simple and improved tools for power converter circuit designers. The key point are to solve EMI and reliability problems at the earlier design stage and not during the prototyping phase. Many solutions are exposed in this text about the magnetic field orientation, leakage inductances identification, power semiconductors modeling and electromagnetic modeling of power converters. The exactness of these methods is proved by using it to develop a matrix converter. The printed circuits are designed to orient properly the magnetic field enabling to introduce low power sensing circuits directly inside the converter. This application is one of the numerous possibilities offered by the techniques presented in this document. Keywords: power converters, modeling, electromagnetic interferences.

  16. Dielectric isolation for power integrated circuits; Isolation dielectrique enterree pour les circuits integres de puissance

    Zerrouk, D.

    1997-07-18

    Considerable efforts have been recently directed towards integrating onto the same chip, sense or protection elements that is low voltage analog and/or digital control circuitry together with high voltage/high current devices. Most of these so called `smart power` devices use either self isolation, junction isolation or Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) to integrate low voltage elements with vertical power devices. Dielectric isolation is superior to the other isolation techniques such as self isolation or junction isolation. Thesis work consists of the study of the feasibility of a dielectric technology based on the melting and the solidification in a Rapid Thermal Processing furnace (RTP), of thick polysilicon films deposited on oxide. The purpose of this technique is to obtain substrate with localized SOI structures for smart power applications. SOI technology offers significant potential advantages, such as non-occurrence of latch-up in CMOS structures, high packaging density, low parasitic capacitance and the possibility of 3D structures. In addition, SOI technology using thick silicon films (10-100 {mu}m) offers special advantages for high voltage integrated circuits. Several techniques have been developed to form SOI films. Zone melting recrystallization is one of the most promising for localized SOI. The SOI structures have first been analyzed in term of extended defects. N-channel MOSFET`s transistors have also been fabricated in the SOI substrates and electrically characterized (threshold voltages, off-state leakage current, mobilities,...). The SOI transistors exhibit good characteristics, although inferior to witness transistors. The recrystallized silicon films are therefore found to be suitable for the fabrication of SOI devices.

    1. Calculation. Knowing the incident current of thermal neutrons, the sources of fast neutrons inside the plate are deduced. The fast flux leaving the plate is then determined. Isotropically, 0.57 fast neutrons come out for each incident thermal neutron. 2. Experiments. The incident thermal flux is measured by means of manganese detectors on reaching the plate, and estimated from the flux leaving the graphite. The fast flux coming out is measured with dose-rate films. The absorption of the fast flux in the swimming-pool water is measured. 3. Results. The uranium plate is equivalent to a disc placed at its surface emitting isotropically 3.8 x 10{sup 7} fast neutrons per cm{sup 2}/s, when Zoe operates at 100 kW. This result is valid to about 10 per cent. (author) [French] 1.Calcul. Connaissant le courant de neutrons thermiques incident, on deduit les sources de rapides a l'interieur de la plaque.

    The study that we propose concerns the automatic design of static converters and especially of Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). The aim is the development of a tool bringing an assistance in the analysis of the specifications, the choice and design of the structure that best match the application. To realize the design of these UPS, a new approach is presented. Specifications are described in terms of input and output performances (voltage, current, ...). These data are analyzed by using design rules and methods which allows designing the input filter, the output filter, the inverter, the rectifier, etc. In practice, these rules and methods are implemented on a micro computer by use of an “expert system generator” SMECI. We present and justify the modular structure that has been installed, as well as its functioning. L'étude que nous proposons concerne la conception automatique des convertisseurs statiques et en particulier des Alimentations Sans Interruption (ASI). Le but recherché est la mise au point d'un outil apportant une aide à l'analyse du cahier des charges, au choix et au dimensionnement des structures les mieux adaptées. Pour réaliser la conception de ces ASI, une nouvelle approche est présentée. Les spécifications sont décrites par les performances recherchées au niveau des courants et des tensions à l'entrée et à la sortie. Ces données sont analysées par l'emploi de méthodes et de règles de conception permettant ainsi de dimensionner le filtre d'entrée, le filtre de sortie, l'onduleur, le redresseur, etc. Au plan pratique, ces règles et méthodes sont implantées à l'aide du “générateur de système expert” SMECI. Nous présentons et justifions la structure modulaire qui a été mise en place, ainsi que son fonctionnement.

    Quel est le point commun entre l'invention de la roue, Pompéi, le krach boursier de 1987, Harry Potter et Internet? Pourquoi ne devrait-on jamais lire un journal ni courir pour attraper un train? Que peuvent nous apprendre les amants de Catherine de Russie sur les probabilités? Pourquoi les prévisionnistes sont-ils pratiquement tous des arnaqueurs? Ce livre révèle tout des Cygnes Noirs, ces événements aléatoires, hautement improbables, qui jalonnent notre vie: ils ont un impact énorme, sont presque impossibles à prévoir, et pourtant, a posteriori, nous essayons toujours de leur trouver une explication rationnelle. Dans cet ouvrage éclairant, plein d'esprit d'impertinence et bien souvent prophétique, Taleb nous exhorte à ne pas tenir compte des propos de certains « experts », et nous montre comment cesser de tout prévoir ou comment tirer parti de l'incertitude.

    The objective of the proposed method is a better knowledge of the spatial energy distribution (SED) supplied by multimodal cavities. The principe of the method consists of observing the laser beam intensity at different locations of a section. After recording beam with a CCD camera, the information is treated in view to recompose the sources SED. The knowledge of the later and the fondamental equations allows us to calculate the propagation characteristics. The obtained results are compared with those coming from Badawi's method and a good agreement was found. So we thunk that the method is valid. L'étude proposée vise une meilleure connaissance de la répartition spatiale de l'énergie (RSE) d'un faisceau laser, que ce qui est classiquement présenté. Le principe consiste à observer l'intensité du faisceau laser en différents points d'une section située à une position bien déterminée de sa propagation. Pour ce faire, il convient d'enregistrer le faisceau à l'aide d'une caméra matricielle CCD. Un traitement de l'information permet alors de reconstituer la RSE de la source. Connaissant cette RSE il est possible, à partir des équations fondamentales, de calculer les caractéristiques de propagation du faisceau considéré. Les valeurs obtenues sont proches de celles dues à la méthode de Badawi et permettent de penser que la méthode est valide.

    Full Text Available Background: The purpose of this study was to assess the arterial stiffness (AS in black africans patients with systemic scleroderma. Patients and Methodology: A prospective cross-sectional hospital survey has been performed over a 6-month period, including 55 black african individuals, aged over 16 years and consenting, consisting of 29 patients with systemic scleroderma and 26 hospitalized controls. The finger-toe pulse wave velocity (ft-PWV was recorded by popmetre® and comparaison between the 2 groups has been performed with statistical analysis. Results: The mean ft-PWV was 9,56 m/s ± 3,09 in the patient group and 7,71 m/s ± 2,63 in control group. The ft-PWV was significantly higher in patients with scleroderma compared to controls (p<0.0145. The study of the relationship between AS and independent variables in multivariate analysis demonstrated that having scleroderma increase by 1.81 times the value of the ft-PWV after adjustment for age and systolic blood pressure. Discussion: To our knowledge, this is the first assessment of the AS in black african patients with scleroderma. It shows that ft-PWV was significantly higher in patients with scleroderma compared to controls. Also, this high AS was imputable to the scleroderma. Conclusion: In Africa, the measurement of the AS by popmetre® could be a simple, rapid, non invasive and pratical early detection and follow-up of cardio-vascular involvments in the course of scleroderma.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do artigo foi identificar a magnitude e a situação de alguns direitos humanos, conforme expressos na United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS, de crianças e adolescentes portadores de HIV/Aids, afetados não-órfãos e órfãos por Aids, com base em pesquisa sobre o tema na literatura científica nacional e internacional. Os principais achados não permitiram indicar com segurança quantos seriam as crianças e os adolescentes portadores do HIV e afetados não-órfãos. Há informações sobre o número de portadores de Aids e de órfãos. Estas estimativas, sejam elas oriundas do sistema de vigilância, modelos matemáticos ou inquéritos, são discutidas em suas limitações e possibilidades. Apesar da literatura ainda ser relativamente pequena, há indícios de comprometimento de vários direitos como saúde, educação, moradia, alimentação, não discriminação, integridade física e mental. Verificou-se que o Brasil ainda precisa avançar para responder às necessidades adicionais dos órfãos e outras crianças vulneráveis. A resposta brasileira, até o momento, é limitada à assistência médica para crianças e adolescentes portadores do HIV/Aids, ao combate à transmissão vertical do HIV e ao financiamento da instalação e manutenção de casas de apoio (abrigos pelo Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente para infectados afetados, órfãos ou não. Essas medidas são insuficientes para garantir um ambiente de apoio para órfãos, crianças e adolescentes infectados ou afetados pelo HIV/Aids. Propõem-se formas do Brasil criar e aprimorar bases de dados para responder a esses desafios.

  8. Contribution to coherent atom optics - Design of multiple wave devices; Contribution a l'optique des ondes atomiques coherentes - Conception de dispositifs multi-ondes

    Impens, F

    2008-03-15

    The theoretical work presented in this manuscript addresses two complementary issues in coherent atom optics. The first part addresses the perspectives offered by coherent atomic sources through the design of two experiment involving the levitation of a cold atomic sample in a periodic series of light pulses, and for which coherent atomic clouds are particularly well-suited. These systems appear as multiple wave atom interferometers. A striking feature of these experiments is that a unique system performs both the sample trapping and interrogation. To obtain a transverse confinement, a novel atomic lens is proposed, relying on the interaction between an atomic wave with a spherical light wave. The sensitivity of the sample trapping towards the gravitational acceleration and towards the pulse frequencies is exploited to perform the desired measurement. These devices constitute atomic wave resonators in momentum space, which is a novel concept in atom optics. A second part develops new theoretical tools - most of which inspired from optics - well-suited to describe the propagation of coherent atomic sources. A phase-space approach of the propagation, relying on the evolution of moments, is developed and applied to study the low-energy dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates. The ABCD method of propagation for atomic waves is extended beyond the linear regime to account perturbatively for mean-field atomic interactions in the atom-optical aberration-less approximation. A treatment of the atom laser extraction enabling one to describe aberrations in the atomic beam, developed in collaboration with the Atom Optics group at the Institute of Optics, is exposed. Last, a quality factor suitable for the characterization of diluted matter waves in a general propagation regime has been proposed. (author)

  9. Development of a method for studying non-linear phenomena in plasma; Mise au point d'une methode d'etude des phenomenes non lineaires dans un plasma

    gaz d'electrons est a la base des meilleures methodes de mesure des frequences de collisions electroniques dans l'ionosphere. Dans les plasmas de laboratoire l'apparition de ces phenomenes est liee a un champ critique de valeur elevee. Tout en n'utilisant qu'une source electromagnetique de puissance relativement faible, nous avons mis au point une methode hyperfrequence simple qui permet de mettre ces phenomenes en evidence, de les mesurer et d'en donner une interpretation elementaire. Une onde electromagnetique, fournie par un klystron de 1 W de puissance, interagit avec une decharge HF (25 MHz) dans le volume d'une cavite TE{sub 111}. Le tube contenant la decharge et l'axe de la cavite cylindrique sont colineaires a un champ magnetique pouvant atteindre une valeur telle que la frequence de l'onde soit egale a la frequence gyromagnetique des electrons. La courbe de resonance de la cavite, qui depend de la densite electronique et de la frequence des collisions, devient d'autant plus dissymetrique que la puissance absorbee est grande et que la frequence gyromagnetique des electrons est voisine de la frequence de l'onde incidente. L'etude de la resonance permet de calculer les coefficients de proportionnalite qui relient les variations de la densite et de la frequence de collisions a la puissance absorbee. Les experiences ont ete faites en faisant varier separement: la puissance UHF incidente, la densite electronique initiale, la pression du gaz neutre ambiant, ainsi que le champ magnetique axial. La variation de la densite electronique en fonction du champ magnetique pour une puissance UHF forte, montre une resonance de forme dissymetrique avec quelquefois un pic aigu, au voisinage de {omega}{sub H}. L'application eventuelle des proprietes mises en evidence a la realisation de dispositifs pratiques est envisagee. (auteur)

  13. Premorbid IQ Predicts Postconcussive Symptoms in OEF/OIF/OND Veterans with mTBI.

    Extant literature has demonstrated that symptoms of postconcussive syndrome (PCS) persist well beyond the expected 3-month post-injury recovery period in a minority of individuals with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Suboptimal performance on validity measures and pre- and post-injury psychosocial stressors - rather than actual mTBI or current cognitive functioning - have been identified as predictors of chronic PCS. Whether premorbid IQ has any influence on chronic PCS has been understudied, in the context of established psychogenic etiologies. The sample included 31 veterans, who underwent mTBI neuropsychological evaluations six or more months post-injury in a VA outpatient neuropsychology clinic. A two-step multiple linear regression was conducted to examine the effects on the outcome variable, PCS (Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory), of the following predictors: cognitive functioning (Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status; Attention, Immediate Memory, and Delayed Memory Indices), performance validity, depression (Beck Depression Inventory-Second Edition), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD Checklist, Civilian Version), quality of sleep (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index), pain (Brief Pain Inventory), education, and Premorbid IQ (Wechsler Test of Adult Reading). The overall regression model containing all nine predictor variables was statistically significant. Depression (p IQ (p IQ and greater endorsed symptoms of depression were associated with higher PCS scores. In Step 2 of the multiple linear regression, the WTAR explained an additional 6.7% of the variance in PCS after controlling for psychosocial stressors and current cognitive ability. The findings support premorbid IQ as a unique and relevant predictor of chronic PCS, with significance variance accounted for beyond education, cognitive functioning, and psychosocial variables. Given the predictive relationship between premorbid IQ and PCS, adapting postconcussive interventions to meet the specific needs of individuals with varying levels of intellect may be important in minimizing ongoing symptomatology.

    2004-07-01

    The E and P-SERV-US-SS performs drilling and completion of offshore oil and gas wells in the Campos Basin. Its responsibility is the supply of employees, platforms, drilling and completion tools and equipment. According to the Brazilian Law, the risk degree is 4. PETROBRAS established annual goals for the Lost Time Injury Frequency-LTIF indicator. For 2010, the goal is 0,5. In the last decade, the efforts of PETROBRAS for the reduction of accidents began to be better planned. The certifications in Health, Safety, Environment and Affairs, bring to workforce a new consciousness about the risks in the work places. Since 2002, PETROBRAS has guided its efforts to reduction of accidents, focusing human being valorization. The Behavior Audits started the process of change of attitudes and people's behavior. In USSS department, they were initiated in 2003, with the managers and supervisors involvement. The participation and the examples of the leaderships in the training of the workforce about risk perception are suitable as the beginning of a program aiming at permanent deviation, incidents and accidents reduction. Reducing deviations, we will reduce the accidents. (author)

    Full Text Available Este trabalho apresenta resultados de dois projetos, um de pesquisa e outro de extensão universitária, que se co-relacionam. Objetivaram conhecer os contextos de apropriação espaço-temporal de lugar e a implicação para a formação de seres cidadãos. Os sujeitos são crianças moradoras de uma região periférica de Florianópolis, em Santa Catarina. Utilizaram-se nos dois projetos métodos variados de investigação e intervenção. Entre eles, imersão em campo, observação livre e participante, entrevistas, passeios dirigidos, atividades lúdicas, desenhos e fotografias. Os recursos metodológicos comprovadamente demonstraram ser um importante modo de apreensão da realidade, já que alcançaram percepções e significações dos sujeitos. As fontes teóricas que fundamentaram a intervenção e a análise foram primordialmente originárias da Psicologia Ambiental. Os dados foram analisados qualitativamente. Os resultados demonstram que esses sujeitos têm identidade com a sua comunidade, porém, em relação aos outros lugares da cidade, verificou-se o fenômeno de “guetificação” e, conseqüentemente, desconhecem a cidade além dos limites de seu bairro. Viu-se como essa limitação dos e nos espaços da cidade reflete-se na constituição de sujeitos-cidadãos.

  18. Realidade virtual e robótica em cirurgia: aonde chegamos e para onde vamos?

    James Skinovsky

    Full Text Available Minimally Invasive Surgery, Telesurgery, Robotics and Virtual Reality represent the technological frontiers that have revolutionized operating practices nowadays. These new technologies aim at improving the quality of assistance offered to patients; thus, they demand from the medical staff more effective measures as far as scientific research, training and expenditure of time and financial resources are concerned. In the past, surgeons have led several medical revolutions, such as the use of antiseptic surgical methods by Semelweiss, the use of anesthesia by Warren, antibiotic therapy, the transplants and the onset of the minimally invasive surgery by Mouret and Perissat. The objective of this article is to present the outreach of this new technology which comprises minimal access, computing, robotics and teletransmission. We have concluded that the new technologies developed in the medical field in the last decades, will offer new options and challenges for the treatment of the surgical patient, leading the scientific knowledge to a new era, the one of the virtual environment.

  1. Economy. The Japanese shock wave; Economie - L'onde de choc japonaise

    Lecompte-Boinet, G.; Dupin, L.; Chandes, C.; Gateaud, P.; Guez, L.; Maillard, C.

    2011-03-15

    Several articles analyse and comment the consequences of the earthquake which occurred in Japan, not only for the Japanese industry and economy, but also for the French ones. In Japan, the most impacted sectors are the energy, the semiconductor and the automotive industries. Renewable energies and gas will at least temporarily replace nuclear energy. Other countries will be impacted, notably China and its automotive industry due to a lack of components. There will also be a lack of electronic components because Japan represents, directly or indirectly, about 40 per cent of world production in this field. In some regions of Japan, the whole production system is in danger because of the supply chain organisation. Other sectors are concerned for differing reasons: raw materials, aeronautic construction, luxury and cosmetics. An article evokes initiatives of French company chairmen, personnel and trade unions to help Japan and the Japanese. An article describes the development of robots and unmanned vehicles by French companies, which are able to intervene in radioactive environments. Another consequence is the inspection of the French and European nuclear plants in order to see whether they can withstand extreme risks. An article stresses that several French industrial sites are exposed to natural risks (earthquake, floods). Finally, Daniel Cohn-Bendit stresses that, after Fukushima, the unlikely is not impossible any longer

  8. Technological competition, increasing efficiency and lock-in in power generation of photovoltaic origin; Competition technologique, rendements croissants et lock-in dans la production d'electricite d'origine solaire photovoltaique

    Taillant, P.

    2001-10-01

    In this study, the evolutionistic model of technological competition of B. Arthur is used to analyze the phenomena of increasing efficiency of adoption and the technological lock-in situation in the sector of photovoltaic cells for power generation. The processes of path dependence and random historical factors, like the public orders, can lead to a situation where the dominating technology is not necessary the most efficient. In the case of solar photovoltaic, the dominating 'crystalline silicon' technology is the one that has today the best energy efficiency. However, taking into account the evolution of its experience curve which shows a beginning of exhausting of the learning effects, the perspectives of cost reduction seem to be limited despite a sustained demand and intense R and D activities. On the other hand, the thin film technology, with lower efficiencies, would gain in competitiveness thanks to the automation of manufacturing processes. In these circumstances, the technological public policies have to maintain a diversity in the choice of possible technologies in order to allow the promising, but less attractive today, technologies to develop in the future.

    The raise of the nuclear physics came with heavy mathematical developments. The analogical installations became especially useful for precise calculations of parameters which depend the running of a reactor. They permit between other to study of kinetic problems and especially ''cybernetics'' of nuclear reactors. It doesn't make a doubt that their use will become widespread, not only in the calculations laboratories, in services for servo-mechanisms study, but also in the control panels of the reactors themselves. (M.B.) [French] L'essor de la physique nucleaire s'est accompagne de lourds developpements mathematiques. Les montages analogiques sont devenus particulierement utiles pour les calculs precis des parametres dont depend le fonctionnement d'un reacteur. Elles permettent entre autre l'etude des problemes cinetiques et surtout ''cybernetiques'' des reacteurs nucleaires. Il ne fait pas de doute que leur usage se generalisera, non seulement dans les laboratoires de calculs, les services d'etudes de servomecanismes, mais aussi pres des tableaux de commande des reacteurs eux-memes.

  10. Technological file for high energy storage power capacitors; Filiere technologique pour condensateurs de puissance a haute energie stockee

    Michalczyk, P.

    1996-03-28

    The `Megajoule` project driven by the Commissariat a l`Energie atomique, needs the storage of an 450 MJ energy in a capacitor bank. Each unitary 78 kJ capacitor must be build in a safe technology. The life time of such a capacitor is materialized by a loss of capacitance for a given number of discharge and not by a short circuit which can damage a part of the installation. The answer to the specifications use the combination of two existing technologies. Impregnated film foil capacitors; dry metallized polymer film capacitors. The energy induced by internal dielectric failures is limited by self-healing; the right arrangement of influential parameters, which are the resistivity of the metallization and the drawing of the segmentation is necessary to achieve this phenomenon. Appropriate manufacturing process, space factor, impregnation and thermal treatments are required to optimise the dielectric strength of the capacitors. The first test results valid this developed technology and our conclusions suggest some ways to improve the volume energy. (author) 13 refs.

  12. HF power couplers for pulsed superconducting cavity resonators; Coupleurs de puissance HF pour cavites supraconductrices en mode pulse

    Recent years have seen an impressive improvement in the accelerating gradients obtained in superconducting cavities. Consequently, such cavities have become attractive candidates for large superconducting linear accelerator projects such as the European XFEL and the International Linear Collider (ILC). As a result, there is a strong interest in reducing RF conditioning time and improving the performance of the input power couplers for these cavities. The so-called TTF-III input power coupler, adopted for the XFEL superconducting RF cavities are complex components. In order to better understand the behavior of this component we have performed a series of experiments on a number of such couplers. Initially, we developed a fully automated RF high power test stand for coupler conditioning procedure. Following this, we performed a series of coupler conditioning tests. This has allowed the study of the coupler behavior during processing. A number of experiments were carried out to evaluate the in-situ baking effect on the conditioning time. Some of the conditioned couplers were sent to DESY in order to be tested on 9-cells TESLA cavities under cryogenic conditions. These tests have shown that the couplers in no way limit the cavity performance, even up to gradients of 35 MV/m. The main objective of our coupler studies was the reduction of their conditioning time, which represents one of the most important criteria in the choice of coupler for high energy linacs. Excellent progress in reducing the conditioning time has been demonstrated by making appropriate modifications to the conditioning procedure. Furthermore, special attention was paid to electron generation processes in the couplers, via multipacting. Simulations of this process were made on both the TTF-III coupler and on a new coupler prototype, TTF-V. Experiments aimed at suppressing multipacting were also successfully achieved by using a DC bias on the inner conductor of the co-axial coupler. (author)

    Shales are the most common sedimentary rocks in hydrocarbon environments often forming the source rock and trapping rock for a reservoir. Due to the platy nature of the constituent grains, shales are commonly anisotropic. In this paper we calculate seismic waveforms for highly anisotropic shales using Maslow asymptotic theory (MAT). This theory is an extension of classical ray theory which provides valid waveforms in regions of caustics (wavefront folding) where ray theory amplitudes are unstable. Asymptotic ray theory (ART) is based on the Fermat or geometrical ray which connects the source and receiver. In contrast, the Maslov solution integrates the contributions from neighbouring non-Fermat rays. Ray-paths, travel-times, amplitudes and synthetic seismograms are presented for three highly anisotropic shales using a very simple 1D model comprised of an anisotropic shale overlying an isotropic shale. The ART waveforms fail to account for complex waveform effects due to triplications. In comparison, the MAT waveforms predict nonsingular amplitudes at wavefront cusps and it predicts the diffracted signals from these cusps. A Maslov solution which integrates ray contributions over a single slowness component will break down when rays focus in 3D (at a point rather than along a line). One of the tested shales shows such a point caustic and integration over 2 slowness components is required to remove the amplitude singularity. Finally, we examine the effects of wavefront triplications on Alford rotations which are used to estimate shear-wave splitting. In such cases, the rotation successfully finds the fast shear-wave polarization, but it can be unreliable in its estimate of the time separation. (authors) 21 refs.

    2017-03-01

    In the rugged terrain of the GOPE locality, there are visible marks of regelation and frost processes, gully and fluvial erosion, slow slope movements and anthropogenic activities. Intensity of recent morphogenetic processes with its maximum in spring corresponds to combination of seasonal changes of air and soil temperature and at the same time to increased water content in the rock massif and in the weathered mantle. The suitable geodynamic location of scientific observatories on the Pecný ridge, stable from engineering-geological and geomorphological point of view, and in its near neighbourhood is menaced by increasing intensity of anthropogenic activities in the landscape.

  3. Quantitative multi-waves migration in elastic anisotropic media; Migration quantitative multi-ondes en milieu elastique anisotrope

    Borgne, H.

    2004-12-01

    Seismic imaging is an important tool for ail exploration. From the filtered seismic traces and a subsurface velocity model, migration allows to localize the reflectors and to estimate physical properties of these interfaces. The subsurface is split up into a reference medium, corresponding to the low spatial frequencies (a smooth medium), and a perturbation medium, corresponding to the high spatial frequencies. The propagation of elastic waves in the medium of reference is modelled by the ray theory. The association of this theory with a principle of diffraction or reflection allows to take into account the high spatial frequencies: the Kirchhoff approach represents so the medium of perturbations with continuous surfaces, characterized by reflection coefficients. The target of the quantitative migration is to reconstruct this reflection coefficient, notably its behaviour according to the incidence angle. These information will open the way to seismic characterization of the reservoir domain, with. a stratigraphic inversion for instance. In order to improve the qualitative and quantitative migration results, one of the current challenges is to take into account the anisotropy of the subsurface. Taking into account rocks anisotropy in the imaging process of seismic data requires two improvements from the isotropic case. The first one roughly concerns the modelling aspect: an anisotropic propagator should be used to avoid a mis-positioning or bad focusing of the imaged reflectors. The second correction concerns the migration aspect: as anisotropy affects the reflectivity of subsurface, a specific anisotropic imaging formula should be applied in the migration kernel, in order to recover the correct A V A behavior of the subsurface reflectors, If the first correction is DOW made in most so-called anisotropic imaging algorithms, the second one is currently ignored. The first part of my work concerns theoretical aspects. 1 study first the preservation of amplitudes in the modelling of waves propagation in anisotropic media. With the approximations of ray theory, 1 develop an expression of the geometrical spreading, the amplitude, and their reciprocity relations. I set up imaging formulas in order to reconstruct the reflection coefficients of the subsurface in elastic anisotropic media. In a first time, 1 salve the direct problem, by expressing the integral relation between the scattered wave field recorded by the receivers and the subsurface reflection coefficients. In a second time, 1 apply an elastic anisotropic quantitative migration method, based on the properties of the inverse Radon transforms (Beylkin's approach), in order to express the reflection coefficient in 2D, 2.5D and 3D media. 1 implemented these formulas in a new preserved amplitude migration algorithm, where the images are sorted by angle classes. At last, 1 apply these theoretical results to synthetic and real datasets. 1 show that migration is able to reconstruct the correct A V A behavior of anisotropic reflection coefficients if hath. modifications are achieved. Then, 1 degrade the process, by keeping an anisotropic ray tracing but using the classical isotropic imaging formula. F'or this commonly used configuration, 1 evaluate the error that can be expected in the A V A response of the migrated reflection coefficient. Methodological applications show the sensibility of the migration results to the velocity model smoothing and to an error on the anisotropic axis. (author)

    The discontinuities in the flow fields (both tangential and shocks) are considered and the equations for the quantities conserved across them are written. The post-shock flow variables are expressed by the Mach number of the incident supersonic flow and its deflection angle operated by rigid wall. Normal and oblique shocks are considered and graphs and polar diagrams are introduced. Then the reflections of a shock wave operated by a rigid wall and by the boundary between a jet and a stagnating gas are analyzed. Finally, the interactions between two distinct shock waves are considered. [Italiano] Vengono considerate le discontinuita` (tangenziali e shocks) nei campi di flusso e sono scritte le equazioni per le quantita` che si conservano attraverso di esse. Le variabili del flusso oltre lo shock sono espresse in funzione del numero di Mach del flusso supersonico incidente e dell`angolo di deflessione di questo operato da una parete rigida. I casi di shock normale, obliquo e distaccato sono considerati e sono introdotti grafici vari e rappresentazioni polari. Sono quindi considerate le riflessioni di un fronte di shock da una parete rigida e dalla frontiera tra un gas in moto ed uno stagnante. Sono infine considerate le diverse interazioni tra due shock distinti.

    Filali, Bilai

    Graphene, as an advanced carbon nano-structure, has attracted a deluge of interest of scholars recently because of it's outstanding mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. There are several different ways to synthesis graphene in practical ways, such as Mechanical Exfoliation, Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), and Anodic Arc discharge. In this thesis a method of graphene synthesis in plasma will be discussed, in which this synthesis method is supported by the erosion of the anode material. This graphene synthesis method is one of the most practical methods which can provide high production rate. High purity of graphene flakes have been synthesized with an anodic arc method under certain pressure (about 500 torr). Raman spectrometer, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) have been utilized for characterization of the synthesis products. Arc produced graphene and commercially available graphene was compared by those machine and the difference lies in the number of layers, the thicknesses of each layer and the shape of the structure itself. Temperature dependence of the synthesis procedure has been studied. It has been found that the graphene can be produced on a copper foil substrate under temperatures near the melting point of copper. However, with a decrease in substrate temperature yields a transformation of the synthesized graphene into amorphous carbon. Glow discharge was utilized to functionalize grapheme. SEM and EDS observation indicated increases of oxygen content in the graphene after its exposure to glow discharge.

    Buchleitner, A

    1993-12-15

    We develop a theoretical formalism which provides a powerful tool for the detailed numerical analysis of the interaction of three-dimensional hydrogen atoms with an intense radiation field. The application of this approach to the microwave ionization of Rydberg states of hydrogen provides the most realistic numerical experiments ever made in this area. A thorough analysis of ionization signals and thresholds, of level dynamics and of the phase space projections of associated wave functions is provided for a one-dimensional model of the atom. The comparison to the ionization of three-dimensional atoms confirms the validity of the one-dimensional model for extended initial states and, hence, dynamical localization theory, as far as the ionization threshold is concerned. Three classes of three-dimensional initial states with distinct symmetries are identified and they appear to be more or less adapted to the symmetries of the eigenstates of the microwave problem. 'Scarred' wavefunctions of the three-dimensional hydrogen atom exposed to microwave field are shown. Finally, the dynamics of a circular state in a microwave and in an intense laser field are compared. (author)

  14. Stabilite thermique de filtres optiques interferentiels quart d'onde et a gradient d'indice pour l'astronomie

    de Denus-Baillargeon, Marie-Maude

    Light coming from far-away astronomical objects carries a variety of information ranging from chemical composition to distance and kinematics. Amongst these astronomical bodies, galaxies are widely studied objects: they are slowly rotating entities made of gas, stars and dark matter, and their properties are broadly distributed. Rotation velocities of galaxies yield very important information, namely the mass enclosed in the rotation radius, and thus the respective distribution of luminous and dark matter. To determine the rotation velocity, the Doppler effect is a convenient tool. As an emission or absorption line shifts from its reference position, it is possible to calculate the approaching or receding velocity. The maximal rotation velocity difference between the approaching and receding sides is at most a few hundreds of km/s, which translates in a few nm shift from the rest wavelength at most, thus calling for very precise spectral information.Due to their distance, the objects observed with astronomical instrumentation are very faint. Optical instruments for astronomy thus require high throughput optical film systems, particularly those based on notch/bandpass filters with low/high in-band transmission and high/low out-of-band blocking power. This calls for very high film uniformity and high precision of film monitoring and process control. Such filters must also survive extreme environmental conditions ranging from fresh and humid climate to cryogenic temperatures.In the present work, we describe all steps leading from filter design to filter fabrication, process monitoring, and characterization. In particular, we focus on the comparison of the performance of graded-index (rugate) filters and quarter-wave stack narrowband filters deposited by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition and dual ion beam sputtering using SiO 2 , TiO 2 and Ta 2 O 5.Optical and mechanical properties of the individual films have been evaluated and are consistent with those found in the litterature reporting on the same tech niques. Namely, we find values of compressive stress of 160 and 410 MPa for layers of Ta 2 O 5 and SiO 2 deposited by DIBS and of 150 and 60 MPa for PECVD- deposited SiO 2 /TiO 2 mixtures rich in SiO 2 and TiO 2 respectively. Young's modulus of 109, 73, 55 and 94 GPa and refraction index of 2,13, 1,49, 1,59 and 2,09 have also been measured for those same materials. Properties of materials mixtures behave qualitatively as the ones reported in references on the subject.Attention is paid to the effect of temperature on the variation of the central wavelength and bandpass width. The results are discussed in terms of film material and filter design. We report variations of ~ =0,04°C for multilayers DIBS-produced filters and -0,0041/°C and 0,19°C for PECVD-deposited quarter- wave stacks and rugate filters respectively. These results match the predictions made by Takashashi's formulae. The bandwidth varies as well with temperature, and the extent of the variation seems related to the number of cavities in the filter. Further work is still needed in order to clearly establish the relation between the number of cavities and the bandpass' narrowing/widening with temperature.

    2007-12-15

    In this work we performed experiments of emission and absorption spectroscopy of laser produced plasmas, to provide well characterized spectral data which permit to benchmark atomic physics codes. More precisely, we produced xenon and krypton plasmas in NLTE (non local thermodynamic equilibrium) conditions and studied their emission spectra. In a second experiment, we characterized the absorption spectra of zinc sulfide and aluminium plasmas in LTE (local thermodynamic equilibrium) conditions.The first two chapters give an outline of the theory involved in the study of the emission and absorption plasma spectroscopy. Chapter 1 describes the different atomic processes occurring in a plasma. The LTE and the NLTE statistics ruling the equilibrium of the atomic processes are presented. Then, we give a brief description of the different codes of plasma atomic physics used in the analysis of our experimental data, namely HULLAC, SCO and TRANSPEC/AVERROES. In Chapter 2 the macroscopic theory of the radiation transport through a plasma is given. We describe also the self-similar model of Basko and the view factor approach, which permits us to calculate the heating conditions of the absorption foils achieved in the interior of the spherical gold cavity. Chapter 3 gives a description of the instruments used for realizing the two experiments, as well as the technical characteristics of the LULI2000 laser facility used to perform the experiments. Chapter 4 presents the experiment realized to characterize the emission spectra of the xenon and krypton plasmas in NLTE, as well the analysis of the experimental data with TRANSPEC/AVERROES. Finally, the experiment for measuring the absorption spectrum of the ZnS plasma mixture and the analysis of the experimental data with the code SCO are given in Chapter 5.

    This study presents a comparison of architectures and strategies of energy management dedicated to VAWT turbines such as Savonius. A Maximum Power Point Tracking must be implemented in order to optimize the energetic behavior. A torque or a speed control, or an indirect control of the DC bus current is possible. In the fact that the wind turbine characteristic is unknown, an operational research based on fuzzy logic is proposed. Aiming to minimize the cost of the static conversion structure, simple structures (diode bridge inverter, associated with DC-DC chopper) are analyzed and compared with a system based on a PWM Voltage Source Inverter. A test bench has been realized in the meantime as a system simulation. Comparisons of the provided energy are made for different wind speeds allowing to evaluate the performance of each structure and of the control strategies. (author)

    During an experiment on the zero power heavy water reactor with natural uranium fuel in the Boris Kidric Institute of Nuclear Sciences, the reactor escaped control. Six staff members in the immediate surrounding of the bare assembly were exposed to high neutron and ionising irradiation. Other two employees who were at some bigger distance were exposed to doses higher than permitted. This paper deals with the circumstances that caused the accident, status of the dosimetry, control and alarm systems. Individual exposure doses were estimated according to the calculated neutron flux values obtained from measuring the activities of personal belongings made of gold and copper as well as radioactive phosphorous from urine.

  3. Semiconductor device models for circuit simulation power electronics; Modeles de composants semiconducteurs pour la simulation des circuits en electronique de puissance

    Berraies, M.O.

    1998-09-10

    In this thesis, an alternative strategy based on a regional approach to modeling and a new partition of the model library in the simulation is proposed. The main objective is to substitute for the usual concept of `one device, on model` that of an adaptable assembly of a limited number of submodels associated with well-identified regions of semiconductor structures. In other words, the library will only contain the primitive building-blocks of the power device models. This strategy guarantees the compatibility of the various semiconductor models in terms of physical concepts, validity domain, accuracy, homogeneity of parameter identification procedures, similarly of implementation in the simulator. This approach has been applied to PIN diodes and IGBTs for experimental validation. The next step consisted on the simulation of circuit involving several interacting devices. A simple IGBT/PIN diode chopper cell has been chosen. The results obtained compare well with experiment. This demonstrates the consistency of the proposed approach. (author) 43 refs.

C’est cette « tension » entre cet ensemble de références touristiques « à voir » et le souci de montrer la ville dans sa pluralité que nous analysons. Ces éléments nourrissent la réflexion actuelle sur les formes polarisées du tourisme à Paris et l’importance de la production de référents urbains plus contemporains que promeut la municipalité.Tour guides are mediators between tourists and spaces. As they embody a physical presence helping tourists and informing them about the city, they also act as prescribers, laying down what is supposed to be seen and to be done. If their recommendations depend on the tourists they travel with, they always mean to produce a discourse on the city. Paris’ museums and heritage have long since been two cornerstones of her enduring appeal. Confronted with this phenomenon, which tends to standardize the way of visiting a city, tour guides try to free their guidelines of symbolic references. This contribution focuses on the tension between must-see tourist references and the desire to show the city in all its diversity. These elements participate in feeding the current, public-authority-driven, reflection on polarized forms of tourism in Paris and on the importance of producing more contemporary urban references.

    Full Text Available In a field where analyses can rarely keep pace with the events, a book needs more than factual information to stand the test of time. In this particular case, what has made this book a standard reading in Romanian academic field and is now launched on an international market is neither relevant data (although the book abounds in spectacular facts, nor the impressive list of recent bibliography. It is the particular quality of what over the years has grown into a powerful, unapologetic and balanced perspective over contemporary developments in the field of global economy and politics.

    With increasing drive towards higher level of integration, lower cost, and longer battery life in wireless applications, there is a need for efficient monolithic DC-DC power converters. This tutorial paper summarizes the topology tradeoffs that are involved in the implementation of monolithic distributed power management in the future generations of SoCs for portable wireless applications. These circuits have a broad range of requirements including high power density, high energy efficiency, low noise, small size, and low cost. The advantages and disadvantages of each of the competing topologies, namely low-dropout linear, switched capacitor, and switched-mode DC-DC converters are examined in light of these requirements.

  12. Uncertainties on decay heat power due to fission product data uncertainties; Incertitudes sur la puissance residuelle dues aux incertitudes sur les donnees de produits de fission

    Rebah, J

    1998-08-01

    Following a reactor shutdown, after the fission process has completely faded out, a significant quantity of energy known as 'decay heat' continues to be generated in the core. The knowledge with a good precision of the decay heat released in a fuel after reactor shutdown is necessary for: residual heat removal for normal operation or emergency shutdown condition, the design of cooling systems and spent fuel handling. By the summation calculations method, the decay heat is equal to the sum of the energies released by individual fission products. Under taking into account all nuclides that contribute significantly to the total decay heat, the results from summation method are comparable with the measured ones. Without the complete covariance information of nuclear data, the published uncertainty analyses of fission products decay heat summation calculation give underestimated errors through the variance/covariance analysis in consideration of correlation between the basic nuclear data, we calculate in this work the uncertainties on the decay heat associated with the summation calculations. Contribution to the total error of decay heat comes from uncertainties in three terms: fission yields, half-lives and average beta and gamma decay energy. (author)

  13. Hybrid electric vehicle thermal management and study of the power electronics cooling; Gestion thermique du vehicule hybride et etude du refroidissement de l'electronique de puissance

    Rouaud, C.

    2004-07-01

    For decreasing the engine's consumption and pollutant emissions, automobile makers are developing hybrid electric vehicles incorporating an electric motor and power electronics leading to new under-hood thermal constraints. This is why we first present the tests results of a new common cooling circuit for all the vehicle components. With the aim of developing new energy management strategies between the components, we have chosen the nodal method to simulate the thermal behaviour of the engine, the electric motor, the power electronics and the cooling circuit. The second part of this thesis deals with a thermal-hydraulic analysis of several power electronics cooling methods, which has led us to choose the multiple jet impingement cooling. Several tests have been made for characterising the performances of this technique and enabled us to establish an optimal configuration. The last part shows the thermal simulation results run with the help of an innovative reduction method of thermal models applied to the power electronics. This technique allowed us to have a low cost of time simulation and will permit, in the future, the real-time control of the hybrid electric vehicle components. (author)

  14. Application de la methode de la reponse frequentielle a l'arret "SSFR", sur une machine synchrone a poles saillants de grande puissance

    Belqorchi, Abdelghafour

    Forty years after Watson and Manchur conducted the Stand-Still Frequency Response (SSFR) test on a large turbogenerator, the applicability of this technic on a powerful salient pole synchronous generator has yet to be confirmed. The scientific literature on the subject is rare and very few have attempted to compare SSFR parameter results with those deduced by classical tests. The validity of SSFR on large salient pole machines has still to be proven. The present work aims in participating to fill this knowledge gap. It can be used to build a database of measurements highly needed to draw the validity of the technic. Also, the author hopes to demonstrate the potential of SSFR model to represent the machine, not only in cases of weak disturbances but also strong ones such as instantaneous three-phase short-circuit faults. The difficulties raised by previous searchers are: The lack of accuracy in very low frequency measurements; The difficulty in rotor positioning, according to d and q axes, in case of salient pole machines; The measurement current level influence on magnetizing inductances, in axes-d and; The rotation impact on damper circuits for some rotors design. Aware of the above difficulties, the author conducted an SSFR test on a large salient pole machine (285 MVA). The generator under test has laminated non isolated rotor and an integral slot number. The damper windings in adjacent poles are connected together, via the polar core and the rotor rim. Finally, the damping circuit is unaffected by rotation. To improve the measurement accuracy, in very low frequencies, the most precise frequency response analyser available on the market was used. Besides, the frequency responses of the signals conditioning modules (i.e., isolation, amplification...) were accounted for to correct the four measured SSFR transfer functions. Immunization against noise and use of instrumentation in their optimum range, were other technics rigorously applied. Magnetizing inductances, being influenced by the measurement current magnitude, the latter was maintained constant in the range 1mHz-20Hz. Other problems such as the rotation impact on damper circuits or the difficulty of rotor positioning are eliminated or attenuated by the intrinsic characteristics of the machine. Regarding the data analysis, the Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) method was used to determine the third and second order equivalent circuit from SSFR measurements. In d-axis, the approaches of adjustment to two and three transfer functions (Ld(s), sG(s) and Lafo(s)) were explored. The second order model, derived from (Ld( s) and G(s)), was used to deduce the machine standard parameters. The latter were compared with the values given by the manufacturer and by conventional on-site tests: Instantaneous three-phase short-circuit, Dalton-Cameron and the d-axis transient time constant at open stator (T'do). The comparison showed the good accuracy of SSFR values. Subsequently, a machine model was built in EMTP-RV based on SSFR standard parameters. The model was able to reproduce stator and rotor currents measured during instantaneous three-phase short-circuit test. Some adjustments, to SSFR parameters, were needed to reproduce stator voltage and rotor current acquired during load rejection d-axis test. It is worthwhile noting that the load rejection d-axis test, recently added to IEEE 115-2009 annex, must be modified to take into account the saturation and excitation impedance impact on deduced parameters. Regarding this issue, some suggestions are proposed by the author. The obtained SSFR results, contribute to raise confidence on SSFR application on large salient pole machines. In addition, it shows the aptitude of the SSFR model to represent the machine in both cases of weak and strong disturbances, at least on machines similar the one studied. Index Terms: Salient pole, frequency response, SSFR, equivalent circuit, operational inductance.

    The reactor core control aims at mastering 2 important parameters that are relevant for reactor availability and safety. First, the reactivity that sets the power output and secondly, the power map in order to handle hot spots. In PWR-type reactors, physical events such as moderator or fuel temperature changes, xenon concentration, that are important for both parameters, evolve during load changes but also during power plateaus and are dependent on burn-up. In this article temperature effect and xenon poisoning are analysed and their impact are assessed along an irradiation campaign through a core neutronic simulation and data from instrumentation. Xenon oscillations are particularly well illustrated. The counter-reactions of the means used for reactor controlling: soluble boron and control rods, are also analysed. (A.C.)

  19. Waves and particles in the Fermi accelerator model. Numerical simulation; Ondes et particules dans le modele de l`accelerateur de Fermi. Simulation numerique

    Meplan, O

    1996-01-01

    This thesis is devoted to a numerical study of the quantum dynamics of the Fermi accelerator which is classically chaotic: it is particle in a one dimensional box with a oscillating wall. First, we study the classical dynamics: we show that the time of impact of the particle with the moving wall and its energy in the wall frame are conjugated variables and that Poincare surface of sections in these variables are more understandable than the usual stroboscopic sections. Then, the quantum dynamics of this systems is studied by the means of two numerical methods. The first one is a generalization of the KKR method in the space-time; it is enough to solve an integral equation on the boundary of a space-time billiard. The second method is faster and is based on successive free propagations and kicks of potential. This allows us to obtain Floquet states which we can on one hand, compare to the classical dynamics with the help of Husimi distributions and on the other hand, study as a function of parameters of the system. This study leads us to nice illustrations of phenomenons such as spatial localizations of a wave packet in a vibrating well or tunnel effects. In the adiabatic situation, we give a formula for quasi-energies which exhibits a phase term independent of states. In this regime, there exist some particular situations where the quasi-energy spectrum presents a total quasi-degeneracy. Then, the wave packet energy can increase significantly. This phenomenon is quite surprising for smooth motion of the wall. The third part deals with the evolution of a classical wave in the Fermi accelerator. Using generalized KKR method, we show a surprising phenomenon: in most of situations (so long as the wall motion is periodic), a wave is localized exponentially in the well and its energy increases in a geometric way.

  20. Estimation de l'equivalent en eau de la neige en milieu subarctique du Quebec par teledetection micro-ondes passives

    Vachon, Francois

    The snow cover (extent, depth and water equivalent) is an important factor in assessing the water balance of a territory. In a context of deregulation of electricity, better knowledge of the quantity of water resulting from snowmelt that will be available for hydroelectric power generation has become a major challenge for the managers of Hydro-Quebec's generating plant. In fact, the snow on the ground represents nearly one third of Hydro-Quebec's annual energy reserve and the proportion is even higher for northern watersheds. Snowcover knowledge would therefore help optimize the management of energy stocks. The issue is especially important when one considers that better management of water resources can lead to substantial economic benefits. The Research Institute of Hydro-Quebec (IREQ), our research partner, is currently attempting to optimize the streamfiow forecasts made by its hydrological models by improving the quality of the inputs. These include a parameter known as the snow water equivalent (SWE) which characterizes the properties of the snow cover. At the present time, SWE data is obtained from in situ measurements, which are both sporadic and scattered, and does not allow the temporal and spatial variability of SWE to be characterized adequately for the needs of hydrological models. This research project proposes to provide the Quebec utility's hydrological models with distributed SWE information about its northern watersheds. The targeted accuracy is 15% for the proposed period of analysis covering the winter months of January, February and March of 2001 to 2006. The methodology is based on the HUT snow emission model and uses the passive microwave remote sensing data acquired by the SSM/I sensor. Monitoring of the temporal and spatial variations in SWE is done by inversion of the model and benefits from the assimilation of in situ data to characterize the state of snow cover during the season. Experimental results show that the assimilation technique of in situ data (density and depth) can reproduce the temporal variations in SWE with a RMSE error of 15.9% (R2=0.76). The analysis of land cover within the SSMI pixels can reduce this error to 14.6% ( R2=0.66) for SWE values below 300 mm. Moreover, the results show that the fluctuations of SWE values are driven by changes in snow depths. Indeed, the use of a constant value for the density of snow is feasible and makes it possible to get as good if not better results. These results will allow IREQ to assess the suitability of using snow cover information provided by the remote sensing data in its forecasting models. This improvement in SWE characterization will meet the needs of IREQ for its work on optimization of the quality of hydrological simulations. The originality and relevance of this work are based primarily on the type of method used to quantify SWE and the site where it is applied. The proposed method focuses on the inversion of the HUT model from passive remote sensing data and assimilates in situ data. Moreover, this approach allows high SWE values (> 300 mm) to be quantified, which was impossible with previous methods. These high SWE values are encountered in areas with large amounts of snow such as northern Quebec.

    The density profile of fusion plasmas can be investigated by the reflectometry diagnostic. The measurement principle is based on the radar techniques which calculate the phase shift of a millimeter wave propagating into the plasma and reflected at a cut-off layer. We have tried to describe the density fluctuation effects upon detected signal to understand the disturbing mechanisms which prevent, sometime, the measurement of the phase. First, we have tried to understand the mechanisms and the origin of the turbulence which is responsible for phase disturbance. We point out the role of collisionality {nu}{sup *} and plasma radiation (with the Hugill normalised parameter H) which control the instability. We also demonstrate that the phase delay of the probing wave is very sensitive to the plasma MHD phenomena and is less affected by the micro-turbulence. The second part of this work is the development and the use of a new heterodyne reflectometer. This new diagnostic uses O-mode beam polarisation and works on the 26-36 GHz frequency range. It launches simultaneously into the plasma two frequencies separated by 320 MHz and we can study them separately or with the amplitude modulation technique. It possesses a better sensitivity than the previous homodyne reflectometer and a higher frequency agility. Its heterodyne detection allows us to separate phase and amplitude informations from the detected signal. (author) 93 refs.

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available O trabalho descreve aspectos da realidade dos Centros Integrados de Educação Pública - Cieps -, da rede estadual do Rio de Janeiro, baseando-se em pesquisa, realizada em 2001, com 50 diretores. Estabelece comparações com a época em que essas escolas foram implantadas sob a forma de programa especial de governo, levando em conta o funcionamento em horário integral, as dificuldades de gestão, as atividades oferecidas, a quantidade de alunos por escola, a utilização e conservação dos espaços. Conclui que a variedade dos níveis de ensino abarcados e a convivência de diferentes regimes horários num mesmo estabelecimento demonstram a vocação ainda pouco definida de tais escolas. A opinião dos gestores sobre o trabalho desenvolvido nos Cieps que mantiveram o horário integral mostra que eles o consideram, muitas vezes, assistencialista, embora essa definição seja vaga e muito variada. Após mais de 15 anos de existência, a tendente municipalização do ensino fundamental e a pressão por vagas no ensino médio parecem ser os maiores entraves para a manutenção dessas escolas segundo seu projeto original.Based on research done by 50 principals of Integrated Centers for Public Education, the Cieps, of the Rio de Janeiro state educational system, this article describes aspects of reality in schools in the year 2001. Comparisons are made with the time when they were implemented as a special government program, taking into consideration their functioning on a full time basis, their management difficulties, the activities offered, the number of students per school and the utilization and conservation of the facilities. It concludes that the variety in levels of teaching which they encompass and the concurrence of different time schedules in a single establishment demonstrate that the purpose of these schools is still poorly defined. The managers' opinions about the work developed in the Cieps which maintained a full time schedule reveal that they, quite often, consider them to be paternalistic, although this definition is vague and varied widely. After more than 15 years of existence, the trend to municipalizing primary education and the pressure for high school vacancies appear to be the greatest obstacles to maintaining these schools in accordance with their original concept.

  5. Study of an ultrasonic generation by the electromagnetic waves; Etude de la generation d'ultrasons par des ondes electromagnetiques

    Juillard, J

    2000-07-01

    The main subject of this work is the development of a bulk-wave EMAT (Electro-Magnetic Acoustic Transducer) semi-analytical model. At first, we consider the general theory behind this type of transduction, especially in the case of P-Waves; this is followed by an experimental study which points out the need of modelling for the design of EMAT probes. Under certain hypotheses, this modelling can be reduced to three separate models: one model giving the eddy currents, another one the permanent magnetic field and one for the acoustic field generated by a surface density of forces. For each of these phenomena, 3-D semi-analytical models are built: they are based on a decomposition of the source terms into elementary sources. The final solutions are obtained through a convolution of the elementary solutions and of the sources. The implementation of these models is then given, as well as some applications to the field of EC and of EMAT. (author)

  9. Experimental study of turbulence on Tore Supra by plasma micro-waves interaction; Etude experimentale de la turbulence sur Tore Supra par interaction plasma micro-ondes

    Colas, L

    1996-09-23

    Internal small-scale magnetic turbulence is a serious candidate to explain the anomalous heat transport in tokamaks. This turbulence is badly known in the gradient region of large machines. In this work internal magnetic fluctuations are measured on Tore Supra with an original diagnostic : Cross Polarization Scattering (CPS). This experimental tool relies on the Eigenmode change of a probing polarised microwave beam scattered by magnetic fluctuations, close to a cut-off layer for the incident wave. In this work, the diagnostic is first qualified to assess its sensitivity to magnetic fluctuations, and the spatial localisation for its measurements. The magnetic fluctuation behaviour is then analysed over a wide range of plasma current, density and additional power, and interpreted with a simple 1-D scattering model. A scan of the plasma density or magnetic field is used to move the CPS measurement location from r/a = 0.3 to r/a = 0.75. A fluctuation radial profile is obtained by two means. In L-mode discharges, the relation between magnetic fluctuations, temperature profiles and local heat diffusivities is investigated. With all measurements, it is also possible to look for a local parameter correlated to the turbulence in a large domain of plasma conditions. The fluctuation-induced local heat diffusivity expected from the measured fluctuations is estimated using the non-collisional quasi-linear formula: X{sup mag}{sub e} = {pi}qRV{sub te}({delta}B / B){sup 2}. Both the absolute values and the parametric dependence of calculated X{sup mag}{sub e} are close to the electron thermal diffusivities Xe determined by transport analysis. In particular, a threshold is evidenced in the dependence of fluctuation-induced heat fluxes on local {nabla}T{sub e}, which is analogous to the critical gradient for measured heat fluxes. The experimental setup is also sensitive to the Thomson scattering of the probing wave by density fluctuations. Its measurements are analysed as the fluctuations of the amplitude and the phase of an interferometer, thanks to a simple modelling of the plasma poloidal motion. Thus one than measure from the spectra shapes statistical quantities of the plasma movement. (author)

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The aim is to propose a parallel between a geometric figure and the dramatic work of Jean-Luc Lagarce to elucidate the essence of his writing technique and understanding the proposed dramaturgical challenge. If the comparison between the divergent spherical wave and the author’s playwriting is compelling, it may perhaps serve as a method of textual analysis with yet a method with yet unknown playwrights and see if the circularity can be seen as a contemporary trend. We will observe how a central dramatic event will cause a series of growing dramatic earthquakes interrelated by a complex language and an inter-character specific space.

    This work is focussed on an important and recent development in present day Controlled Nuclear Fusion Research and Tokamaks. The aim is to optimise the energy confinement for a certain magnetic configuration by adapting the radial distribution of the current. Of particular interest are feedback control scenarios with stationary modifications of the current profile using current, driven by Lower Hybrid waves. A new feedback control system has been developed for Tore Supra and has made a large number of new operation scenarios possible. In one of the experiments described here, there is no energy exchange between the poloidal field system and the plasma, the current is controlled by the power of the Lower Hybrid waves while the launched wave spectrum is used to optimise the current profile shape and the energy confinement.

Initially we'll discuss risk-adventure in the context of the literature on risk and the regulation of adventure tourism in Brazil. Based on a case study of a tourism office offering leisure activities in nature, it proceeds with an analysis of how client safety is guaranteed in the network of relationships involving tourism market, insurance industry and State regulation. It concludes with brief considerations about the distribution of damages and responsibilities between tourism operators, insurance agents, clients and the State, with emphasis on potential changes in the scenario presently configured.

  14. Effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (microwaves) on mammalian pregnancy; Effets sur la gestation des mammiferes de l'exposition aux champs electromagnetiques (micro-ondes)

    2006-06-15

    Women soldiers account now for nearly 10 % of the NATO forces. Some studies have alleged that exposure to microwaves may result in pregnancy mishaps. We have tried to assess what was the risk. A lot of studies were conducted on non mammalian species: birds, sea urchins, worms and insects. Extrapolation to the mammals is subject to caution due to the protective effect of intrauterine development. We reviewed the literature dealing only with mammals. Even if some discrepancy persists, it seems that the presence or the absence of thermic effect is essential in order to estimate the risk. Reduced birth weight and increased rate of miscarriage were the most common findings when the exposure reached a thermic effect. In the majority of the studies, non thermic exposure had no impact on pregnancy outcome. (authors)

  15. Sensitivity and inversion of full seismic waveforms in stratified porous medium; Sensibilite et inversion de formes d'ondes completes en milieu poreux stratifie

    Barros, L. de

    2007-12-15

    Characterization of porous media parameters, and particularly the porosity, permeability and fluid properties are very useful in many applications (hydrologic, natural hazards or oil industry). The aim of my research is to evaluate the possibility to determine these properties from the full seismic wave fields. First, I am interested in the useful parameters and the specific properties of the seismic waves in the poro-elastic theory, often called Biot (1956) theory. I then compute seismic waves propagation in fluid saturated stratified porous media with a reflectivity method coupled with the discrete wavenumber integration method. I first used this modeling to study the possibilities to determine the carbon dioxide concentration and localization thanks to the reflected P-waves in the case of the deep geological storage of Sleipner (North Sea). The sensitivity of the seismic response to the poro-elastic parameters are then generalized by the analytical computation of the Frechet derivatives which are expressed in terms of the Green's functions of the unperturbed medium. The numerical tests show that the porosity and the consolidation are the main parameters to invert. The sensitivity operators are then introduced in a inversion algorithm based on iterative modeling of the full waveform. The classical algorithm of generalized least-square inverse problem is solved by the quasi-Newton technique (Tarantola, 1984). The inversion of synthetic data show that we can invert for the porosity and the fluid and solid parameters (densities and mechanical modulus, or volume rate of fluid and mineral) can be correctly rebuilt if the other parameters are well known. However, the strong seismic coupling of the porous parameters leads to difficulties to invert simultaneously for several parameters. One way to get round these difficulties is to use additional information and invert for one single parameter for the fluid properties (saturating rate) or for the lithology. An other way is to realize differential inversion, to estimate the model variations. Finally, I apply this algorithm on real data recorded on a Mediterranean coastal site. I can reconstruct a lithological model if I use additional information from drilling measure. (author)

  1. Modal approach for the full simulation of nondestructive tests by elastic guided waves; Approche modale pour la simulation globale de controles non-destructifs par ondes elastiques guidees

    Jezzine, K

    2006-11-15

    Tools for simulating nondestructive tests by elastic guided waves are developed. Two overall formulations based on modal formalism and reciprocity are derived depending on whether transmission and reception are separated or not. They relate phenomena of guided wave radiation by a transducer, their propagation, their scattering by a non-uniformity of the guide or a defect and their reception. Receiver electrical output is expressed as a product of terms relating to each phenomenon that can be computed separately. Their computation uses developments based on the semi-analytical finite elements method, dealing with guides of arbitrary cross-section and cracks normal to the guide axis. Simulation tools are used to study means for selecting a single mode using a transducer positioned on the guide section, such a selection making easier the interpretation of the results of testing by guided waves. Two methods of mode selection are proposed, based on the use of two specific frequencies (which existence depends on guide geometry and mode symmetry). Mimicking the normal stress distribution of the mode at one of these two frequencies or the other makes it possible to radiate solely or predominantly the mode chosen. Examinations are simulated in configurations using a single or two separated transducers positioned on the section of various guide geometries and cracks of various shapes. The interest and performances of the two methods of mode selection are studied in these configurations. (author)

    Vezard, D

    1994-12-20

    This thesis presents a study concerning cyclotronic waves in a plasma. It starts with an illustration of the elementary interaction between electromagnetic waves and matter.It shows that electrons from tokamak absorbs waves at cyclotronic frequency. Cyclotronic waves are studied by solving the dispersion relation in plasma; it concerns polarisation, absorption, dispersion, extinction. Then, classical theories are reminded in order to speak about decoupled electrons and their interactions. Absorption and emission properties of cyclotronic waves by electrons from a queue are described. After that, cyclotronic waves propagation is studied taking into account resonance. The last part of this thesis is dedicated to the electronic distribution function that is made by a wave spectra at a inferior hybrid frequency. (TEC). 129 refs., 75 figs.

  6. Mecanismes physiques et fondements theoriques de la recuperation d'energie micro-ondes ambiante pour les dispositifs sans fil a faible consommation

    Petzl Lorenz, Carlos Henrique

    Powering low consumption and low duty cycle devices and circuits using Ambient Microwave Energy Harvesting (AMEH) has been the subject of several investigations in recent years. The interest for this research topic has been promoted mainly by various and new applications driven mainly by the Internet of things, Building Automation and new developments in devices for the Body Area Networks. A common characteristic among several of these applications is the need for a wireless source which does not require regular maintenance, and has a small size and low weight. Batteries are often too cumbersome and require a maintenance plan to recharge or replace them, which is not always possible. A new source of energy is thus necessary. Ambient energy harvesting is proposed as an alternative source of power to these low power consumption devices and circuits. This M.A.Sc. work is developed to explore the microwave ambient energy harvesting using diode rectifier circuits. A mathematical model is first developed to explain the mechanisms that contribute to the process of recovery of microwave energy in the range of power found in the ambient microwave energy harvesting applications. An evaluation of this model is made using simulation results and then measurements results from three prototypes developed under this M.A.Sc. program. The results show an excellent agreement between the three methods. The developed model includes losses in the parasitic components of the non-linear element used for the rectification of energy as well as the impedance matching network insertion losses. Based on this model, two possible ways of improving the efficiency of ambient microwave power rectifiers at the power levels found in the AMEH are explored. In this work, it is considered that the AMEH takes place within the range of powers with a peak value of -30 dBm, however at average power levels well below this threshold. First, a cooperative hybrid circuit of ambient energy harvesting is presented where collected microwave and mechanical energies are converted in a cooperative manner through a single nonlinear component. Theory, simulations and measurements show that the total power recovered by the proposed scheme can provide up to twice the efficiency of a circuit combining the output of two independent harvesters. Then, a work demonstrating for the first time that the limitations of a Schottky diode harvester can be overcome by using backward tunnel diodes is presented. It is shown that the limitation reached by the Schottky diodes half a century ago can be overcome thanks to a higher current responsivity obtained through tunneling transport. The measured power recovery efficiency was equal to 18.2% when a -30 dBm signal at 2.4 GHz was applied to the input of the microwave energy harvesting circuit. The efficiency of conversion for a similar circuit using Schottky diodes, which is presented in the first chapter together with the mathematical model, does not exceed 11% at the same input power level and similar frequency. On the date of publication of the articles presented in this thesis, the highest published microwave power conversion efficiency was close to 5% for input power levels equal to -30 dBm and frequency close to 2 GHz. Finally, an application of microwave power transfer is presented. A rectenna operating at 94 GHz is built and measured, an energy conversion efficiency equal to 37.7% was obtained for an input power equal to 3 dBm. This rectenna is proposed as an alternative power source for microrobots, which may not use batteries due to their small size and light weight.

  10. Monitoring of the current profile by using cyclotronic electron waves in tokamaks; Controle du profil de courant par ondes cyclotroniques electroniques dans les tokamaks

    Dumont, R

    2001-08-01

    The subject of this thesis is the study of the cyclotronic electron wave as a monitoring tool of the current profile. The first chapter is dedicated to basic notions concerning tokamak plasmas and current generation. The second chapter is centered on the use of fast electrons to generate current and on its modelling. The propagation and absorption of the cyclotronic electron wave require a specific polarization state whose characteristics must be carefully chosen according to some parameters of the discharge, the chapter 3 deals with this topic. The absorption of a wave in a plasma depends greatly on the velocity distribution of the particles that make up the plasma and this distribution is constantly modified by the energy of the wave, so this phenomenon is non-linear and its physical description is difficult. In a case of a fusion plasma, a sophisticated approximation called quasi-linear theory can be applied with some restrictions that are presented in chapter 4. Chapters 5 and 6 are dedicated to kinetics scenarios involving the low hybrid wave and the cyclotronic electron wave inside the plasma. Some experiments dedicated to the study of the cyclotronic electron wave have been performed in Tore-supra (France) and FTU (Italy) tokamaks, they are presented in the last chapter. (A.C.)

  11. Kinematics of the quasi-p wave in anisotropic media. Application to tomography; Cinematique de l'onde quasi p en milieux anisotropes. Application a la tomographie

    Mensch, Th.

    2000-01-12

    The seismic anisotropy causes in the Earth are known. The anisotropy characterization can provide valuable informations on the structure, lithology or eventual deformation processes in geological media. The orthorhombic symmetry allows a more complete description and representation of the anisotropy than the transversely isotropy symmetry usually assumed. Moreover this symmetry is potentially common in sedimentary basins, and particularly in fractured reservoir. In anisotropic media of arbitrary symmetry (triclinic), there is no simple analytic expressions on the phase slowness surface. The weak anisotropy assumption, often reasonable in geological media, makes perturbation techniques relevant. An approximate first order analytical expression of the qP-wave slowness surface is obtained. Using an adequate parameterization, the forward problem is solved by the ray theory. The Hamiltonian formulation introduces by a simple way ray equations in anisotropic media. The rays, travel time and its Fruchet derivatives expressions, valid to first order, are given for orthorhombic inhomogeneous media. Perturbation method applied to the ray theory allows the development of fast ray tracing in these media. Synthetic examples illustrate the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed approach. A tomographic method is developed. The travel time are inverted by minimizing, in term of least-square, the misfit between the observed and calculated travel times. The solution is approached iteratively by using a singular value decomposition algorithm. The inversion stability is assured by introducing a priori constraints. Synthetics examples show the need of an acquisition geometry well conceived to take account of anisotropy. (author)

    Full Text Available O objetivo do artigo foi identificar a magnitude e a situação de alguns direitos humanos, conforme expressos na United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS, de crianças e adolescentes portadores de HIV/Aids, afetados não-órfãos e órfãos por Aids, com base em pesquisa sobre o tema na literatura científica nacional e internacional. Os principais achados não permitiram indicar com segurança quantos seriam as crianças e os adolescentes portadores do HIV e afetados não-órfãos. Há informações sobre o número de portadores de Aids e de órfãos. Estas estimativas, sejam elas oriundas do sistema de vigilância, modelos matemáticos ou inquéritos, são discutidas em suas limitações e possibilidades. Apesar da literatura ainda ser relativamente pequena, há indícios de comprometimento de vários direitos como saúde, educação, moradia, alimentação, não discriminação, integridade física e mental. Verificou-se que o Brasil ainda precisa avançar para responder às necessidades adicionais dos órfãos e outras crianças vulneráveis. A resposta brasileira, até o momento, é limitada à assistência médica para crianças e adolescentes portadores do HIV/Aids, ao combate à transmissão vertical do HIV e ao financiamento da instalação e manutenção de casas de apoio (abrigos pelo Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente para infectados afetados, órfãos ou não. Essas medidas são insuficientes para garantir um ambiente de apoio para órfãos, crianças e adolescentes infectados ou afetados pelo HIV/Aids. Propõem-se formas do Brasil criar e aprimorar bases de dados para responder a esses desafios.This study aimed at identifying human rights' status and situation, as expressed in the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS, of children and adolescents living with HIV/AIDS, non-orphans and orphans affected by AIDS, based on local and international literature review. The main study findings did not allow to accurately estimating those children and adolescents living with HIV and non-orphans affected by HIV/AIDS but data was available on those living with AIDS and orphans. The limitations and possibilities of these estimates obtained from surveillance systems, mathematical models and surveys are discussed. Though studies in literature are still quite scarce, there is indication of compromise of several rights such as health, education, housing, nutrition, nondiscrimination, and physical and mental integrity. Brazil still needs to advance to meet further needs of those orphaned and vulnerable children. Its response so far has been limited to providing health care to those children and adolescents living with HIV/AIDS, preventing mother-to-child HIV transmission and financing the implementation and maintenance of support homes (shelters according to Child and Adolescent Bill of Rights for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, either orphans or not. These actions are not enough to ensure a supportive environment for children and adolescents orphaned, infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. It is proposed ways for Brazil to develop and improve databases to respond to these challenges.

  15. Modelling, development and optimization of integrated power LDMOS transistor. Performance limits in terms of energy; Modelisation, conception et optimisation de composant de puissance lateral DMOS integre. Etude des limites de performance en energie

    Farenc, D.

    1997-12-16

    Technologies for Smart Power Integrated Circuits combine into a single chip Bipolar and CMOS transistors, plus power with lateral or vertical DMOS transistors. Complexity which has been increasing dramatically since the mid-80`s has allowed to integrate, into a single monolithic solution, entire systems. This thesis deals with the modelling, conception and test of the power integrated LDMOS transistor. The power LDMOS transistor is used as a switching device. It is characterized by two parameters which are the Specific On-resistance R{sub sp} and the breakdown voltage BV{sub DSS}. The LDMOS transistor developed for the new Smart Power technology exhibits a Specific On-resistance of 200 m{Omega}{sup *}mm{sup 2} and a breakdown voltage of 60 V. This device is dedicated to automotive applications. A reduction of the power device which is achieved with a low Specific On-resistance puts forward new issues such as the maximum Energy capability. When the power device is switched-off on an inductive load, a certain amount of energy is dissipated; if it is beyond a certain limit, the device is destroyed. Our goal is to determine the energy limits which are associated with our new Power integrated LDMOS transistor. (author) 28 refs.

  16. Study of a power coupler for superconducting RF cavities used in high intensity proton accelerator; Etude et developpement d'un coupleur de puissance pour les cavites supraconductrices destinees aux accelerateurs de protons de haute intensite

    Souli, M

    2007-07-15

    The coaxial power coupler needed for superconducting RF cavities used in the high energy section of the EUROTRANS driver should transmit 150 kW (CW operation) RF power to the protons beam. The calculated RF and dielectric losses in the power coupler (inner and outer conductor, RF window) are relatively high. Consequently, it is necessary to design very carefully the cooling circuits in order to remove the generated heat and to ensure stable and reliable operating conditions for the coupler cavity system. After calculating all type of losses in the power coupler, we have designed and validated the inner conductor cooling circuit using numerical simulations results. We have also designed and optimized the outer conductor cooling circuit by establishing its hydraulic and thermal characteristics. Next, an experiment dedicated to study the thermal interaction between the power coupler and the cavity was successfully performed at CRYOHLAB test facility. The critical heat load Qc for which a strong degradation of the cavity RF performance was measured leading to Q{sub c} in the range 3 W-5 W. The measured heat load will be considered as an upper limit of the residual heat flux at the outer conductor cold extremity. A dedicated test facility was developed and successfully operated for measuring the performance of the outer conductor heat exchanger using supercritical helium as coolant. The test cell used reproduces the realistic thermal boundary conditions of the power coupler mounted on the cavity in the cryo-module. The first experimental results have confirmed the excellent performance of the tested heat exchanger. The maximum residual heat flux measured was 60 mW for a 127 W thermal load. As the RF losses in the coupler are proportional to the incident RF power, we can deduce that the outer conductor heat exchanger performance is continued up to 800 kW RF power. Heat exchanger thermal conductance has been identified using a 2D axisymmetric thermal model by comparing experimental and computed temperatures. Finally, a last part of our work has been dedicated to a preliminary study of thermohydraulic behaviour of supercritical helium observed during the experiment. Then we have established a stability diagram based on dimensionless parameters. This diagram shows a good agreement between our data and those of previous similar experiments. (author)

    Construction of Melusine was started in January 1957, It first diverged on July 1, 1958. It operated at: 1 MW from March 1959; 1.4 MW from April 1960; 2 MW from September 1961; 4 MW from December 1965. Various modifications have been made since the reactor was built. They concern: - the addition of a hot cell. - the effluents: 2 reservoirs of 15 m{sup 3} for liquid waste have been installed. The resin regeneration equipment has been completely modified. - the building: offices have been added - experimental zones have been set up in the hall - the electrical supply. - the cooling and purification circuits (installation of a second exchanger, replacement of the primary pumps, creation of a hot layer, etc... ). - the fuel elements (at the moment of the MTR type enriched to 90 per cent). - the swimming-pool (which has been partially equipped with a stainless steel coating). - the core (placing of 'stools', of a diving-board, etc...). - the ventilation: the hall has been de-pressurized during normal working in the event of an accident, the hall can be isolated and a safety circuit can be started up. A chimney has been installed. - the hall (which has been strengthened and sealed more effectively). - the control electronics (modification of the principle, and which are now entirely transistorized). So many changes have been made that the reactor now bears only a slight resemblance to the initial model. It has appeared necessary to make a brief review of these improvements in order to be able to judge more effectively the installations present safety characteristics; these latter are furthermore fairly well known as a result of the experiments carried out not only by the Thermal Transfer Service in Grenoble but also at Cadarache (Cabri) and Toulon (the work of Mr. PASCOUET). (authors) [French] MELUSINE a ete construite a partir de janvier 1957. Sa premiere divergence a eu lieu le 1er juillet 1958. Elle a fonctionne a: 1 MW a partir de mars 1959; 1,4 MW a partir d'avril 1960; 2 MW A partir de septembre 1961; 4 MW a partir de decembre 1965. Diverses modifications ont ete apportees depuis la construction. Elles concernent: - L'adjonction d'une cellule chaude. - Les effluents: 2 cuves de 15 m{sup 3} pour effluents liquides ont ete mises en place.

Une cheminee a ete installee. - Le hall (qui a ete renforce et dont l'etancheite a ete amelioree). - L'electronique de controle (modifiee dans son principe et maintenant entierement transistorisee). L'ensemble a si profondement evolue que le reacteur n'a plus que de lointains rapports avec la realisation initiale. Il a paru necessaire de faire une breve synthese de ces ameliorations afin de mieux permettre de juger des caracteristiques de surete actuelles de l'installation, caracteristiques du reste beaucoup mieux connues du fait des experiences realisees tant a GRENOBLE au Service des Transferts Thermiques qu'a CADARACHE (Cabri) et TOULON (travaux de M.

  18. Study of a criticality accident involving fuel rods and water outside a power reactor; Etude d'un accident de criticite mettant en presence des crayons combustibles et de l'eau hors reacteur de puissance

    Beloeil, L

    2000-05-30

    It is possible to imagine highly unlikely but numerous accidental situations where fuel rods come into contact with water under conditions close to atmospheric values. This work is devoted to modelling and simulation of first instants of the power excursion that may result from such configurations. We show that void effect is a preponderant feedback for most severe accidents. The formation of a vapour film around the rods is put forward and confirmed with the help of experimental transients using electrical heating. We propose then a vapour/liquid flow model able to reproduce void fraction evolution. The vapour film is treated as a compressible medium. Conservation balance equations are solved on a moving mesh with a two-dimensional scheme and boundary conditions taking notice of interfacial phenomena and axial escape possibility. Movements of the liquid phase are modelled through a non-stationary integral equation and a dissipative term suited to the particular geometry of this flow. The penetration of energy into the liquid is also calculated. Thus, the coupling of aerodynamic and hydrodynamic modules gives results in excellent agreement with experiments. Next, neutronic phenomena into the fuel pellet, their feedback effects and the distribution of power through the rod are numerically translated. For each developed module, validation tests are provided. Then, it is possible to simulate the first seconds of the whole criticality accident. Even if this calculation tool is only a way of study as a first approach, performed simulations are proving coherent with reported data on recorded accidents. (author)

  1. Study of a superconducting spoke-type cavity and of its associated power coupler; Etude d'une cavite acceleratrice supraconductrice de type spoke et de son coupleur de puissance associe

    Mielot, Ch

    2004-12-01

    This work deals with the study of a spoke-type cavity and its associated power coupler. The results of this study are used in the framework of the high power proton linear accelerator of the experimental accelerator-driven system project (XADS). The cavity (F=352 MHz, {beta}=0.35) was tested at 4 K and 2 K. The results at 4 K gave good margins toward XADS requirements that increase the reliability of a spoke based driver. At 2 K the accelerating field reached is the highest in the world for spoke cavities: 16 MV/M. The position and diameter of the coupling have been optimized in order to decrease the HF losses and avoid multi-factor risk. In order to decrease HF losses (taking into account the 20 kW power fed into the cavity) the electric coupling mode has been chosen. Different types of ceramic windows have been studied in order to make this critical point of the coupler reliable: coaxial disk with or without chokes or empty coaxial cylinder. The optimization process focused on the reflected power, the losses in the ceramic and the surface electric field. The risk with chokes has been modeled and studied with the propagation lines theory. A systematic study of the different windows has been done regarding the geometrical parameters. The disk without chokes seems to be a good solution for our application. The power source will be a solid state amplifier (for reliability and modularity reasons). An all over coaxial coupler can be designed and will be fabricated and tested soon. (author)

    Bochirol, L; Bonjour, E

    1967-07-01

    The principle of a differential calorimeter is briefly described. The apparatus allows a direct and continuous determination of the differential heat-capacity between a sample and a reference, in the range 20 to 600 deg. K approximately. Some examples concerning measurements at low temperatures of reversible or non reversible thermal effects are given. They show the possibilities of the apparatus and are connected with: - detection and measurements of thermal effects associated to structural transformations in elastomers at low temperatures, - measurements of Wigner energy released after neutron irradiations at 77 deg. K for: recrystallized pyro-graphites; high purity iron, aluminium. [French] On decrit brievement le principe d'un calorimetre differentiel qui permet la determination directe et continue de la difference de chaleur specifique apparente entre un echantillon et une reference, dans une gamme de temperatures s'etendant de 20 a 600 deg.

Ils montrent les possibilites de l'appareillage et concernent: - la detection et la mesure d'effets thermiques associes a des transformations structurales dans des elastomeres a basse temperature, - la mesure du degagement d'energie Wigner apres des irradiations neutroniques a 77 deg.

  3. Design of an experiment to measure the decay heat of an irradiated PWR fuel: MERCI experiment; Conception d'une experience de mesure de la puissance residuelle d'un combustible irradie: l'experience MERCI

    Bourganel, St

    2002-11-01

    After a reactor shutdown, a significant quantity of energy known as 'decay heat' continues to be generated from the irradiated fuel. This heat source is due to the disintegration energy of fission products and actinides. Decay heat determination of an irradiated fuel is of the utmost importance for safety analysis as the design cooling systems, spent fuel transport, or handling. Furthermore, the uncertainty on decay heat has a straight economic impact. The unloading fuel spent time is an example. The purpose of MERCI experiment (irradiated fuel decay heat measurement) consists in qualifying computer codes, particularly the DARWIN code system developed by the CEA in relation to industrial organizations, as EDF, FRAMATOME and COGEMA. To achieve this goal, a UOX fuel is irradiated in the vicinity of the OSIRIS research reactor, and then the decay heat is measured by using a calorimeter. The objective is to reduce the decay heat uncertainties from 8% to 3 or 4% at short cooling times. A full simulation on computer of the MERCI experiment has been achieved: fuel irradiation analysis is performed using transport code TRIPOLI4 and evolution code DARWIN/PEPIN2, and heat transfer with CASTEM2000 code. The results obtained are used for the design of this experiment. Moreover, we propose a calibration procedure decreasing the influence of uncertainty measurements and an interpretation method of the experimental results and evaluation of associated uncertainties.

    A plasma is defined as a partially or completely ionized gas. Even though, they are very present in the visible universe, natural plasmas are rare on Earth. However, they are a major interest for industries and research institutes (surface treatment, spatial propulsion). Nevertheless, the understanding of plasma behavior is complicated because of the numerous physical fields involved. Moreover, theses plasmas can be magnetized, i.e., a magnetic field, external or induced, affects significantl...

    Mineral oil is the most commonly used insulating liquid in power transformers due to its low price and its good properties. However, the performances of this oil start to be limited with respect to the new requirements. Two ways are considered to solve this problem: find substitution liquids or improve the properties of mineral oil. We are interested by the second solution. Our work consists in mixing mineral oil with others types of insulating liquids for transformers, and finding the best o...

    1997-12-31

    After having chosen between different cooling solutions for a given power electronics component, the dimensioning of a two-phase forced convection loop is described. The power electronics component is a 12 x 12 mm silicon pellet which can dissipate up to 400 W/cm{sup 2} heat fluxes. In a first step, the minimum size of channels is determined according to fluid characteristics, pressure drop and critical fluxes. In a second step, the coupled dimensioning of both the evaporator and the condenser is determined for different values of pipes diameter and mass flow rates. (J.S.) 8 refs.

  8. On control strategies for power optimization and regulation of variable speed wind turbines; Sur les strategies de commande pour l'optimisation et la regulation de puissance des eoliennes a vitesse variable

    Boukhezzar, B

    2006-02-15

    The research work is dealing with variable speed wind turbines modelling and control design, in order to achieve the objectives of maximizing the extracted energy from the wind, below the rated power area in the one hand and in the other hand regulating the electric power production, above the rated power area, while reducing mechanical transient loads. For this purpose, we have studied various control strategies from linear to nonlinear based. some of the controllers that we have developed, herein appear for the first time in the relevant domain, the remaining others are an adaptation of well know controllers to the adopted wind turbine models. as matter of fact, we have derived two wind turbine models as well as a wind speed estimator. Indeed, the estimator allows obtaining the effective wind speed which cannot be measured, since the wind profile around the rotor is variable in time and space. As results, it has been shown that single input control by means of pitch angle or generator control cannot succeed to simultaneously drive the electric power output regulation and the rotor speed reference tracking. So then, our idea is to combine nonlinear dynamic state feedback torque control and pitch linear based control which turns out to be the best strategy. In addition, the validation of the controllers performance, using a high turbulence wind speed profile, has been performed through wind turbine simulators provided by nrel (national renewable energy laboratory, golden, co), has confirmed the theoretical results and has led to quite satisfactory conclusions in terms of energy capture optimization, power regulation and disturbances strong rejection as well.

  9. Global design of a reversible air/water heat pump with variable power for the residential sector; Conception globale d'une pompe a chaleur air/eau inversable a puissance variable pour le secteur residentiel

    Flach-Malaspina, N.

    2004-10-15

    Variable power is one of the means to improve the seasonal energy efficiency of heat pump space heating systems. The dual compressors technology is energetically efficient and is available in Europe. The main results of this work are: 1 - the identification of the origin of cycling losses in heating and cooling mode of existing mono-compressor air/water systems. The standby consumption of the heat pump is the only element which can efficiently contribute to reduce the energy losses at partial load. 2 - The quantification of the energy gains by adapting the dual compressors technology to a prototype of reference heat pump. 3 - A dynamic model of calculation of the seasonal coefficient of performance has been developed. 4 - The optimization of compressors operation and of the unfreezing system has permitted to increase the seasonal coefficient of performance from 14.7% to 18.6% with respect to the outdoor temperature. To carry out this study, design, experimental and modeling works have been done. The design of a heat pump fitted with two compressors has required the development of a new partial load testing bench. The several experimental and standardized tests have permitted to characterize an existing heat pump and a dual compressor heat pump whatever the operation mode and the outdoor climate. The dynamical model obtained has permitted to optimize the energy efficiency of the system thanks to a better management of the unfreezing system and to a proper regulation of the compressors. Some ways of improvement concern the dimensioning of compressors and the management of exchangers flow rates for an additional improvement of seasonal coefficients of performance. (J.S.)

    Berriane, R.

    1997-05-05

    The development of MOS thyristor technological processes for integration of the switching function for high voltage power applications in industrial supply networks, is studied. A MOS-gated optically triggered thyristor is presented, which includes a MOS gated thyristor constituting the power element and a photodiode for optical control detection; protection and control are obtained respectively by a Zener diode and a depletion MOSFET transistor. In order to verify the switching function, a model is proposed and a high voltage planar aluminium gate process technology, compatible with various bipolar and MOSFET devices associations have been developed and optimized. In the framework of industrial supply networks, the integration of a thermal protection element has been investigated. The dual thyristor function application has been also studied, composed of a spontaneously fired, controlled turn off MOS-thyristor association. The early developments of a MOS thyristor polysilicon gate process technology is then presented

    Menanteau, L.

    2004-10-15

    This works concerns the development of a virtual proto-typing tool for electro-thermo-mechanical simulation of power converters. The programming of this code, written in an object-oriented language, includes a dual Schur Domain Decomposition Method. The solving of problems including floating sub-domains can be performed in steady-state whereas man can couple implicit and explicit integration schemes. These integration schemes can have different time steps. Moreover, the code includes parts of programme which permit the parallelization of calculus and so the optimisation of the times of resolution. The benchmarks which are presented validate the method and show its substantial gains in time of calculus. The last part of this work concerns the study of an industrial benchmark concerning the power converters used in railway transport: it concerns the electro-thermal simulation of a semiconductor chip in steady state and in transient. This sample allows to compare different strategies of tearing in sub-domains and to couple different time steps on the same structure. (author)

  18. Comparative study of energy conversion system dedicated to a small wind turbine; Etude comparative de chaines de conversion d'energie dediees a une eolienne de petite puissance

    Mirecki, A

    2005-07-01

    This study presents a comparison of architectures and strategies of energy management dedicated to VAWT turbines such as Savonius. A Maximum Power Point Tracking must be implemented in order to optimize the energetic behavior. A torque or a speed control, or an indirect control of the DC bus current is possible. In the fact that the wind turbine characteristic is unknown, an operational research based on fuzzy logic is proposed. Aiming to minimize the cost of the static conversion structure, simple structures (diode bridge inverter, associated with DC-DC chopper) are analyzed and compared with a system based on a PWM Voltage Source Inverter. A test bench has been realized in the meantime as a system simulation. Comparisons of the provided energy are made for different wind speeds allowing to evaluate the performance of each structure and of the control strategies. (author)

  1. Low-power heat pump systems combining two organic Rankine cycles; Applications de pompe a chaleur. A l'exemple des systemes ORC-ORC de petite puissance

    Demierre, J.

    2009-07-01

    In this basic article that includes many diagrams and equations illustrating a research project conducted at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland the author describes the first part of his thesis. A new concept of thermally driven heat pump (TDHP) is presented, which could be a real alternative to today's heating systems in buildings that are mainly based on less efficient fuel-fired boilers. Nowadays, the heat pump market is dominated by two kinds of systems: the electrically driven vapor compression heat pumps, which are the most widely used in residential heating applications, and the thermally driven heat pumps that are usually based on a sorption process. In this research project, the investigated TDHP - designated by ORC-ORC - is based on the coupling of a vapor compression heat pump cycle and an organic Rankine cycle (ORC). The studied concept uses a single stage centrifugal compressor directly coupled to a single stage radial inflow turbine. The shaft is rotating on gas bearings, which allows the system to be oil-free. Like most of the other TDHP's, this system has the advantage to work with a variety of fuels or heat sources like wood pellets, natural gas, solar heat, geothermal heat or waste heat. The concept studied in this work is a gas fired system for space heating and domestic hot water production in small residential buildings (power range: 20 kW). A systematic approach has been used to theoretically evaluate, in terms of energy efficiency, the potential of ORC-ORC systems. The method is based on the optimization which allows identifying the best configurations at each design step with respect to the designer choices. This approach is divided into three steps. In the first step, a model of the complete system has been developed based on a process integration approach. This step allows to quickly determine whether the system is potentially attractive or not, for given conditions, before going deeper into the design process. The results show that, in general, it is advantageous for the ORC evaporation to be supercritical. In the second step, based on the process integration results and heuristic rules, a suitable system heat exchanger network has been generated and modeled. The predicted values of the coefficient of performance (COP) at design conditions, for the various situations, are in the range 1.30 and 2.19. In a last step, the off-design characteristics of the compressor-turbine unit are considered, in order to evaluate the COP as well as the heating capacity range that can be covered with a specific compressor-turbine unit design (rotational speed up to 171,000 rotations per minute). For this purpose, a model of the compressor-turbine unit has been developed. The author concludes that the proposed concept seems to be feasible using currently available technology.

  2. Design of an experiment to measure the decay heat of an irradiated PWR fuel: MERCI experiment; Conception d'une experience de mesure de la puissance residuelle d'un combustible irradie: l'experience MERCI

    Bourganel, St

    2002-11-01

    After a reactor shutdown, a significant quantity of energy known as 'decay heat' continues to be generated from the irradiated fuel. This heat source is due to the disintegration energy of fission products and actinides. Decay heat determination of an irradiated fuel is of the utmost importance for safety analysis as the design cooling systems, spent fuel transport, or handling. Furthermore, the uncertainty on decay heat has a straight economic impact. The unloading fuel spent time is an example. The purpose of MERCI experiment (irradiated fuel decay heat measurement) consists in qualifying computer codes, particularly the DARWIN code system developed by the CEA in relation to industrial organizations, as EDF, FRAMATOME and COGEMA. To achieve this goal, a UOX fuel is irradiated in the vicinity of the OSIRIS research reactor, and then the decay heat is measured by using a calorimeter. The objective is to reduce the decay heat uncertainties from 8% to 3 or 4% at short cooling times. A full simulation on computer of the MERCI experiment has been achieved: fuel irradiation analysis is performed using transport code TRIPOLI4 and evolution code DARWIN/PEPIN2, and heat transfer with CASTEM2000 code. The results obtained are used for the design of this experiment. Moreover, we propose a calibration procedure decreasing the influence of uncertainty measurements and an interpretation method of the experimental results and evaluation of associated uncertainties.

    Lipkin, H.

    1954-03-15

    The author reports the use of the Nordheim formula in the case of Zoe (a pile located in Chatillon), while considering the case bars in natural uranium (instead of UO{sub 2}), and while taking the effect of geometry on photo-neutron production into account. The Nordheim formula is calculated for two different experimental values of the constants of delayed neutrons. The author discusses the difference between the results obtained for reactivity with these new conditions and with the older ones. He reports the calculation of the geometrical factor.

Nous montrons que les signaux peuvent être automatiquement séparés sans connaissance a priori sur leurs vitesses apparentes, en fonction du produit scalaire (calculé dans le domaine fréquentiel et de l'amplitude relative des signaux. Nous montrons des exemples d'application sur des données de sismique de puits. Le filtrage matriciel est effectué dans le domaine fréquentiel en utilisant la matrice spectrale construite à l'aide des intercorrélations des différents enregistrements constituant les données à traiter. Les méthodes d'estimation de la matrice spectrale sont des méthodes de moyenne : moyenne en fréquence (méthode du périodogramme lissé et/ou moyenne en distance (lissage réalisé le long des diagonales de la matrice spectrale. Le lissage en fréquence est obtenu par l'intermédiaire d'une fonction de pondération (par exemple fenêtre de Hanning élevée à une puissance donnée appliquée à chaque corrélation. Les moyennes sont utilisées pour décorréler les signaux et de ce fait favoriser la séparation. Une fois correctement estimée, la matrice spectrale est diagonalisée sur toutes les fréquences du spectre moyenné, et décomposée selon ses vecteurs propres qui sont orthogonaux entre eux et normalisés. Chaque vecteur propre a une valeur propre associée qui représente la répartition d'énergie en fonction de la fréquence du modèle lié au vecteur propre. Le filtrage est réalisé par projection des données sur les différents vecteurs propres issus de la matrice spectrale. Il est à noter cependant que la séparation des différents signaux (projection sur vecteur propre n'est réalisée en terme d'indicatrice sismique que si les événements sismiques sont naturellement orthogonaux et alignés sur les vecteurs propres.

  5. Les superpolynomes symetriques dans les problemes a plusieurs corps de la mecanique quantique supersymetrique

    Desrosiers, Patrick

    S'inspirant de la supersymetrie, on construit dans cette these une nouvelle generalisation de la theorie des fonctions symetriques. Une theorie physique est supersymetrique si: (1) elle contient des bosons (particules de spin entier) et des fermions (particules de spin demi-entier); (2) elle reste inchangee suite a une transformation des bosons en fermions et vice versa. Les fonctions symetriques dans le superespace (superfonctions symetriques) incorporent a la fois des variables commutatives (bosoniques) et anticommutatives (fermioniques). Ces dernieres engendrent une algebre de Grassmann. Une superfonction symetrique est invariante sous l'echange simultane des variables bosoniques et fermioniques (action diagonale du groupe symetrique); elle se caracterise par une superpartition, i.e., une juxtaposition appropriee de partitions usuelles d'entiers non negatifs. On utilise deux approches dans l'elaboration de la theorie des superfonctions symetriques: l'une provient de la combinatoire et l'autre, de la physique. Suivant la premiere approche, on obtient l'extension des elements standards de la theorie des fonctions symetriques fonctions monomiales, fonctions symetriques elementaires, fonctions completement symetriques, series de puissances, fonctions generatrices et formules de Cauchy. On demontre egalement qu'il existe une extension naturelle, a un parametre, du produit scalaire combinatoire defini par l'orthogonalite des series de puissances dans le superespace. La seconde approche consiste a resoudre des problemes a N corps de la mecanique quantique supersymetrique. On etudie les extensions supersymetriques des modeles Calogero-Moser-Sutherland (CMS), lesquels decrivent l'evolution de particules dont le potentiel d'inter action est proportionnel a l'inverse du carre de la distance separant les particules. Deux modeles supersymetriques CMS sont resolus: trigonometrique (sur un cercle) et rationnel (sur une ligne) avec confinement harmonique. Leurs fonctions d'ondes

  7. Trace Pair Filtering for Separation of Upgoing and Downgoing Waves in Vsp (Vertical Seismic Profile) Filtrage à deux canaux pour la séparation des ondes montantes et descendantes en PSV (Profil Sismique Vertical)

    Glangeaud F.; Durand P.; Mari J. L.; Coppens F.

    2006-01-01

    Most multichannel algorithms used for separation of upgoing and downgoing waves in VSPs assume depth-stationarity of the signal on all the traces used in the separation filter. However, if the depth-window of the filters becomes too large (100-200 m) signal stationarity cannot be assumed. On the other hand, stationarity is a physically reasonable assumption for two neighbouring probe locations (5-20 m). A comparison is made of three algorithms used for the separation of upgoing and downgoing ...

    Fast electrons are one of the basic ingredients of plasma operations in many existing thermonuclear fusion research devices. However, the understanding of fast electrons dynamics during creation and sustainment of the superthermal electrons tail is far for being satisfactory. For this reason, the Electron Cyclotron Transmission (ECT) diagnostic was implemented on Tore Supra tokamak. It consists on a microwave transmission system installed on a vertical chord crossing the plasma center and working in the frequency range 77-109 GHz. Variations of the wave amplitude during the propagation across the plasma may be due to refraction and resonant absorption. For the ECT, the most common manifestation of refraction is a reduction of the received power density with respect to the signal detected in vacuum, due to the spreading and deflection of the wave beam. Wave absorption is observed in the vicinity of the electron cyclotron harmonics and may be due both to thermal plasma and to superthermal electron tails. It has a characteristic frequency dependence due to the relativistic mass variation in the wave-electron resonance condition. This thesis presents the first measurements of: the extraordinary mode optical depth at the third harmonics, the electron temperature from the width of a cyclotron absorption line and the relaxation times of the electron distribution during lower hybrid current drive from the ordinary mode spectral superthermal absorption line at the first harmonic.

    Positron emission tomography (PET) is a rapidly evolving imaging modality that has gained widespread acceptance in oncology, with several radionuclides applicable to thyroid cancer. Thyroid cancer patients have been studied most commonly using {sup 18}F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET, with perhaps the greatest utility being the potential localization of tumor in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) patients who are radioiodine whole body scan (WBS) negative and thyroglobulin (Tg) positive. Also of value is the identification of patients unlikely to benefit from additional {sup 131}I therapy and identification of patients at highest risk of disease-specific mortality, which may prompt more aggressive therapy or enrollment in clinical trials. Emerging data suggest that PET/CT fusion studies provide increased accuracy and modify the treatment plan in a significant number of DTC cases when compared to PET images alone. However, studies documenting improvements in survival and tumor recurrence attributable to FDG-PET imaging in thyroid cancer patients are lacking. Specific case examples of thyroid cancer patients who appear to have benefited from FDG-PET imaging do exist, while less data are available in the setting of anaplastic or medullary thyroid carcinoma. This article reviews the utility and limitations of FDG-PET in DTC management, and offers practical recommendations. (author)

  11. Mixed spectral finite elements and perfectly matched layers for elastic waves in time domain; Elements finis mixtes spectraux et couches absorbantes parfaitement adaptees pour la propagation d'ondes elastiques en regime transitoire

    Fauqueux, S.

    2003-02-01

    We consider the propagation of elastic waves in unbounded domains. A new formulation of the linear elasticity system as an H (div) - L{sup 2} system enables us to use the 'mixed spectral finite element method', This new method is based on the definition of new spaces of approximation and the use of mass-lumping. It leads to an explicit scheme with reduced storage and provides the same solution as the spectral finite element method. Then, we model unbounded domains by using Perfectly Matched Layers. Instabilities in the PML in the case of particular 2D elastic media are pointed out and investigated. The numerical method is validated and tested in the case of acoustic and elastic realistic models. A plane wave analysis gives results about numerical dispersion and shows that meshes adapted to the physical and geometrical properties of the media are more accurate than the others. Then, an extension of the method to fluid-solid coupling is introduced for 2D seismic propagation. (author)

    Full Text Available Este artigo trata de uma análise sobre os motivos que levaram o Brasil a sediar a Copa do Mundo de futebol de 1950, bem como a forma com que a imprensa brasileira abordou essas motivações. Por meio de um discurso que procurava atribuir aspectos positivos à nossa nacionalidade, tais como capacidade de realização, de organização e de trabalho, procurava-se oferecer um contraponto a um certo senso comum que via o brasileiro como um ser de pouca operosidade, que deixaria “tudo para amanhã”. Ao mesmo tempo, procurava-se passar para o exterior uma imagem de um país desenvolvido e civilizado, plenamente integrado aos padrões de modernidade.

  13. Wave Propagation in the Effective Model of Alternating Porous and Impermeable Solid Layers Propagation des ondes dans un modèle effectif constitué de couches solides alternativement poreuses et imperméables

    Molotkov L.

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available Elastic properties of finely layered media are of great interest for seismic exploration. Theoretical models give a dependence of overall properties on constituent parameters. On the one hand they help geophysicists to estimate possible ranges of anisotropy and on the other hand they provide a basis for interpretation of measured anisotropic parameters in terms of microstructure. Last forty years such models with elastic constituents have been extensively used. Recently they have been updated for describing fractured rocks (Hsu and Schoenberg, 1993. In this case thin, and soft elastic layer models fracture. However reservoir rocks are porous and permeable. Porosity and permeability are taken into account by well-known Biot model. Finely layered porous sequences have some distinctive properties which are the topic of modern research (Schoenberg, 1996. Therefore it is important to update developed concepts to porous medium. Bakulin and Molotkov (1998, 1997 who generalized Backus averaging on poroelastic medium have done first step. Here we pay attention to one special case when there is only one preferential direction of fluid flow in porous rock. This may be caused by presence of impermeable barriers or lenses, which are modeled as set of solid layers intersecting porous medium. Such model corresponds to highly hydraulically anisotropic rock, which has very strong anisotropy of pore space structure and permeability. Les propriétés élastiques des milieux finement stratifiés présentent un grand intérêt pour l'exploration sismique. Les modèles théoriques donnent les propriétés générales en fonction des paramètres des constituants. D'une part, ils aident les géophysiciens à évaluer les gammes d'anisotropie possibles, et d'autre part, ils offrent une base pour l'interprétation des paramètres d'anisotropie mesurés en termes de microstructure. De tels modèles, élastiques, ont été largement utilisés ces quarante dernières années. Ils ont été récemment remis à jour pour la description des roches fracturées (Hsu et Schoenberg, 1993. Dans ce cas, il s'agit de modèles stratifiés élastiques à fractures. Toutefois, les roches-réservoirs sont poreuses et perméables. La porosité et la perméabilité sont prises en compte dans le modèle bien connu de Biot. Les séquences poreuses finement stratifiées ont certaines propriétés distinctes qui font l'objet de recherches actuelles (Schoenberg, 1996. Il est donc devenu important de remettre à jour les concepts développés sur les milieux poreux. Bakulin et Molotkov (1998, 1997 ont effectué la première étape en généralisant aux milieux poroélastiques la technique d'homogénéisation de Backus. Nous nous concentrons ici sur un cas particulier où il n'y a qu'une direction préférentielle de l'écoulement du fluide dans les roches poreuses. Ceci peut être provoqué par la présence de barrières imperméables ou de formes lenticulaires, qui sont modélisées comme un ensemble de couches solides croisant des milieux poreux. Un tel modèle correspond à des roches fortement anisotropes vis-à-vis des propriétés hydrauliques, et présente une très forte anisotropie de structure de son espace poreux.

  14. Estudos dos agrupamentos vegetativos relacionados com as áreas onde foram efetuadas as pesquisas sôbre a febre amarela silvestre no Município de Passos, Estado de Minas Gerais

    1947-09-01

    Full Text Available The work reported here was carried-out on the invitation of Dr. Henry Kumm, Director of the Rockefeller Foundation, and by appointment from Dr. Henrique Aragão, Director of the Instituto Oswaldo Cruz. It was done during the investigation of sylvan yellow fever, in June 1947, with a view to establishing the phyto-ecological conditions of the county of Passos. The pe¬riod was, however, too short for definite conclusions to be reached. Thanks are due to Dr. O. R. Causey, Chief of Research on Yellow Fever for transpor¬tation and other help. THE REGIONAL VEGETATION. Aerial photographs of the county of Passos shoto that it is covered by three great types of vegetation: Rain Forest, Secondary Pasture Land and Scrub.1 Detailed investigation, however, brings out the fact that these correspond to different seres; furthermore, each type presents not only the specific, characteristics of the biological form dominant for the climate, but also are at various stages, which express HABITATS differing from those of the normal sere. The phytogeographic survey of the region shows that most of it is now covered by secondary pasture land (disclimax in which Melinis minutiflora, v. "fat grass" (fig. 1, predominates. The mosaic of Rain Forest and of small patches of Scrub reveals the effects of human intervention (BARRETO, H. L. de Mello 1; consequently, all the formations have to be regarded as secon¬dary, though some of them probably include relicts of the primitive climax (WARMING, E. 2. On close examination, the Scrub cannot be considered as the climax, because of the following facts: 1. In the zone of Rain-Forest stretches of forest are present in very varied topographic conditions and the reconstitution of the associations show that man has destroyed an ecological unit (fig. 2. 2. In the zone of Scrub the characteristic patches are small. The banks of rivers and brooks, the valleys and ravine and whatever the soil has retained some humidity, is being invaded fry Rain Forest, which seems to be growing under optimum conditions. The Scrub is thus limited to small belts on the calcareous mountains and on sandy soils with alcaline depths (pH abo¬ve 7 which do not retain enough moisture for the Rain Forest that is progres¬sively restricting the area occupied by Scrub. In view of the topographic and present climatic conditions the Rain Forest must consequently be regarded as the regional climax. The presence of ecologically contradictory elements and associations shows that the real problem is that of the fluctuations of the climate of Passos or even of Minas Geraes during the quaternary and recent periods (DAN-SEREAU, P. : 3, a subject on which little is known and which is tied to the evolution of the climate of Brazil (OLIVEIRA, E. : 4 . The transformation of Scrub into Rain Forest has been - observed by the author before, in other parts of Brazil (VELOSO, PL P.: 5 . It seems probable that the Rio Grande has also greatly influenced the change of the regional vegetation, by invading areas of Scrub and dislocating the limit of the Pluvial climate towards the Canastra Range, though there are remnants of Scrub (postclimax transfor¬med into secondary open country (disclimax, fig. 5 by human devastation and the setting of fire to the land. VEGETATION GROUPS OF THE PLUVIAL TYPE. The map of the region also shows that at the present time the small patches of forest (whether devasted or intact occupy the least accessible places, such as valleys, peaks and abrupt slopes (fig. 2. Even these are now being destroyed, so that in the near future this forested region will be en¬tirely reduced to poor pasture land unless energetic measures of conservation are undertaken in time. The Special Service for Prophylaxis against Yellow Fever installed two of their four Stations for the Capture of Mosquitos in this area, one of them at Batatal and the other at Cachoeira, which have separate formations each of them composed of several associations. Other vegetation formations were also analysed, from the synecological point of view, so as to ascertain of which degree of succession their associations belong. These phytosociological sur¬veys give an idea of the principal characteristics of each station. BATATAL FORMATION. The abrupt nature of the valley has rendered this location inappropriate for agricultural purposes since colonial times. The relict of the primitive forest climax saved by this circumstance has expanded gradually to zones whose paedologic conditions favour the eatablishment of mesophilous species. The aerial photograph shows two small stretches of forest, one apparently primi¬tive, the other composed of associations belonging to the subclimax of the subsere. CACHOEIRA FORMATION. Aerial photographs show that this station is crossed by a small river, which divides it into two separate parts. The first, which presents ecological conditions similar, though not identical to those of Batatal, is favoured by topography and apparently remains primitive forest. Though the topography of the other, on the whole, favours the establishment of groups belonging to the normal sere of the climax, is has been partly devastated recently and the aspect of the associations has been completely modified. It was is this part that the four posts for the capturing of mosquitos were set up. The first forest is favoured by deposition of organic matter, washed out from the nearby devasted areas by torrential rains, and thus provides, an appropriate HABITAT for the climax species with certain hygrophilous trends of the ecological quasiclimax type. This association seems to have reached a biological equilibrium, as the dominates. Gallesia gorarema and Cariniana legalis (fig. 10, present an optimum vitality with a vigorous habit and a normal evolutionary cycle. The Cariniantum legalis Gallesiosum equilibrium, corresponds however, to a provisory association, because if the moving of soil by torrential rains should cease it would become possible…

    Full Text Available Les mécanismes qui régissent l'atténuation sont très complexes et encore mal compris actuellement. Certains mécanismes ont pu être éliminés comme le phénomène de frottement grain à grain du fait des amplitudes de déformation usuelles en sismique. Il. semble que les mécanismes responsables soient différents dans le cas de roches sèches (aux conditions de laboratoire et dans le cas de roches plus ou moins saturées. Dans le cas de roches sèchesl'atténuation semble provenir à la fois d'un hystérésis microcapillaire et d'une rupture des liaisons hydrogènes entre les hydroxyles de la surface et les molécules d'eau. Dans le cas de roches saturées, les candidats les plus probables au phénomène d'atténuation sont les mécanismes de Biot et de squirt flow . Le mécanisme de Biot est la possibilité d'avoir des mouvements différentiels globaux (ou plutôt moyennés à l'échelle de l'échantillon entre la matière solide et le fluide. Le squirt flowconsiste en un phénomène de relaxation visqueuse dont l'excitateur est extérieur : le liquide à l'intérieur de la cavité poreuse jaillit sous l'effet d'une pression de pore locale. The mechanisms governing attenuation are highly complex and still poorly understood at present. Some mechanisms have been eliminated, such as the grain-to-grain friction, due to the usual deformation amplitudes in seismic exploration. The mechanisms responsible for attenuation seem to be different for dry rocks (under laboratory conditions and more or less saturated rocks. For dryrocks, attenuation seems to come from both a microcapillary hysteresis and a break of the hydrogen bonds between the surface hydroxyls and water molecules. For saturated rocks, the most probable causes of attenuation are Biot mechanisms and squirt flow. The Biot mechanism Is the possibility of having overall differential movements (or rather averaged ones on the scale of the sample between the solid matrix and the fluid. Squirt flow consists of a viscous relaxation phenomenon with an external exciter, causing the liquid inside the porous cavity to squirt under the effect of local pore pressure.

    The thesis concerns the development and implementation of numerical methods for solving the time-dependent Schroedinger equation. We first considered the case of electron-hydrogen scattering. The originality of our method is the use of a non-uniform radial grid defined by a Schwarz interpolation based on a Coulomb reference function. This grid allows many hydrogen bound states and associated matrix elements of various operators to be reproduced to machine accuracy. The wave function is propagated in time using a Split-Operator method. The efficiency of our method allows the wave function to be propagated out to large distances for all partial waves. We obtain excitation and ionization cross sections in excellent agreement with the best experimental and theoretical data. We subsequently adapted the method and the program package to study reactive atom-dihydrogen scattering. The wave packet is described using product Jacobi coordinates on a regular grid of radial coordinates combined with a basis of Legendre polynomials for the angular part (partial wave S). The wave function is analysed using a time-to-energy Fourier transform, which provides results over the energy range covered by the initial wave packet in one calculation. The method was first tested on the quasi-direct (F,H2) reaction and then applied to the indirect (C(1D),H2)reaction. The state-to-state reaction probabilities are in good agreement with those obtained by a time-independent approach. In particular, the strongly resonant structure of the (C(1D),H2) reaction probabilities is well reproduced. (author)

  20. Contribution to a torsional wave guide for the measurement of compressible fluids; Contribution a la theorie d'un guide a onde de torsion pour la mesure de niveau de liquides compressibles

    Goubel-Lenoel, A

    1999-10-01

    In order to provide complementary means for measurement of water levels in pressurized vessels of nuclear reactors, the possibilities of an immersed torsional wave sensor are being looked into. It has already been modeled, considering an incompressible fluid. Yet, because the fluid can turn into a two-phase fluid, we have investigated how to extend the existing model. As a first step, we have taken into account the compressibility of the surrounding fluid. We focus on a cylindrical waveguide with an elliptic cross-section. Its transverse dimensions are small compared with its length and the wavelengths in the fluid. We start with the elasticity equations for the waveguide. Then, from the exact expression of the pressure exerted by the fluid on the waveguide boundary, a long wavelength approximation is obtained. We end by applying Hamilton's principle of energy conservation, which leads to an approximate equation governing the fluid-loaded waveguide motion, and to an expression of the apparent phase velocity of the torsional wave in the immersed waveguide. Finally, fluid level measurement is possible. Some simulations are made, highlighting the influence of the compressibility. (author)

  1. Theoretical and experimental study of a modular accelerating structure of travelling waves sections for high gradient tests (MECCANO); Etude theorique et experimentale d`une structure acceleratrice a ondes progressives demontable pour des tests fort gradient (Structure dite ``MECCANO``)

    Chanudet, M

    1996-06-04

    A modular system, MECCANO, has been developed at the Laboratoire de l`Accelerateur Lineaire d`Orsay to study the physical and technical phenomena of high electric fields in travelling waves structures in the context of future linear colliders which can reach TeV energies. The behaviour of the electric field inside the section MECCANO is considered from the theoretical point of view with numerical simulations and analytical representations and from the experimental side with low and high power measurements. An infinite and uniform structure is classically described by series of RLC resonant circuits. The basic RF properties of the fundamental mode are given. For a finite section, the matching of a forward or backward travelling wave of any phase advance per cell is also represented by means of RLC circuits. The variations of the reflection and transmission properties of the structure with frequency and a new procedure to match couplers have been modelled and experimentally verified. The electromagnetic behaviour of each cavity and of the whole structure have been studied, the fundamental and first high order modes have been simulated by 2D or 3D codes and measured at low power. The matching of the phase, the amplitude and the reflection level of the accelerator is described. This procedure is found to be extremely delicate due to the abrupt changes in the geometry of the cavities. The structure has been tested at fields superior to 150 MV/m. The behaviour of some materials and surface layers subject to high gradients are presented. (author) 46 refs.

  2. De onde vem o endividamento feminino?: construção e validação de um modelo PLS-PM Where does the women debt come from?: construction and validation of a PLS-PM model

    Full Text Available O consumo exacerbado pode levar muitos indivíduos a contraírem dívidas comprometendo uma parcela significativa de suas rendas e, em muitos casos, acabando por ser tornarem inadimplentes. A inadimplência trás consigo efeitos muitas vezes arrasadores tanto do ponto de vista macroeconômico, aumentando o risco das operações e produtos financeiros, como do ponto de vista do indivíduo, ao afetar suas relações sociais, seu estado psicológico e sua vida familiar. Por outro lado, a maior participação da mulher no mercado de trabalho trouxe uma maior independência financeira e consequentente maior poder na decisão de consumo e ao mesmo tempo, maiores responsabilidades sobre o gerenciamento financeiro e nas decisões de endividamento. Neste sentido, este estudo centrou-se na identificação e análise dos fatores que afetam na propensão ao endividamento, nas mulheres da Mesorregião Centro Ocidental Rio-grandense. Assim, este trabalho propõe um modelo estrutural para explorar as relações entre os fatores determinantes da propensão ao endividamento junto às mulheres da referida Mesorregião, considerando variáveis que compõem os construtos de STATUS SOCIAL, PREOCUPAÇÃO, ESTABILIDADE, PRAZER, PODER, ORÇAMENTO, ILUSÃO e MATERIALISMO. Para isso, foram aplicados 2.500 questionários espalhados estatisticamente entre os 31 municípios que compõem esta Mesorregião. Os dados foram analisados através da metodologia Partial Least Squares - Path Modeling (PLS-PM. Sumariamente, os resultados sugerem que o construto ENDIVIDAMENTO está associado aos construtos STATUS, PREOCUPAÇÃO e MATERIALISMO, corroborando com as teorias das Finanças Comportamentais, ao sugerir que as decisões que envolvem endividamento vão além da simples relação consumo e renda, ou seja, existem outras variáveis comportamentais que são importantes na hora do indivíduo contrair dívidas, tais como, o significado que o indivíduo atribui ao dinheiro e o nível de materialismo.The exacerbate consumption may lead many individuals to contract debts which commite a significant portion of their income and, in many cases, eventually taking into default. The default often brings with it devastating effects in both macroeconomic point of view, increasing the risk of operations and financial products, such as from the individual standpoint, affecting his social, psychological state and family life. Moreover, the bigger women participation in labor market brought greater financial independence and empowerment in decision and consequently larger power of consumption decision and at the same time, more responsibility on financial management and borrowing decisions. Thus, this study focused on the identification and analysis of factors which affect the indebtedness propensity, among women in the Rio Grande do Sul western-central mesoregion. This study proposes a structural model to determine the relationships among the women indebtedness propensity determinants of that mesoregion, considering variables which compose the constructs of SOCIAL STATUS, CONCERN, STABILITY, PLEASURE, POWER, BUDGET, ILLUSION and MATERIALISM. For this, were applied 2,500 questionnaires statistically scattered among the 31 cities which compose the mesoregion. Data were analyzed by Partial Least Squares -Path Modeling (PLS-PM methodology. In summary, the results suggest that the construct INDEBTEDNESS is associated with SOCIAL STATUS, CONCERN and MATERIALISM, corroborating with the Behavioral Finance theories, suggesting that decisions involving borrowing go beyond the simple consumption and income relationship, i.e., there are other behavioral variables which are important in the time that individual contract debts, such as the meaning that the individual attaches to money and the materialism level.

  3. Study of electronic heat transport in plasma through diagnosis based on modulated electron cyclotron heating; Etudes de transport de la chaleur electronique par injection modulee d'ondes a la frequence cyclotronique electronique

    In order to make nuclear fusion energetically profitable, it is crucial to heat and confine the plasma efficiently. Studying the behavior of the heat diffusion coefficient is a key issue in this matter. The use of modulated electron cyclotron heating as a diagnostic has suggested the existence of a transport barrier under certain plasma conditions. We have determined the solution to the heat transport equation, for several heat diffusion coefficient profiles. By comparing the analytical solutions with experimental data; we are able to study the heat diffusion coefficient profile. Thus, in certain experiments, we can confirm that the heat diffusion coefficient switches from low to high values at the radius where the electron cyclotron heat deposition is made. (authors)

  7. Para onde nos guia a mão invisível? Considerações sobre os paradoxos do modelo econômico hegemônico e sobre os limites ecológicos do desenvolvimento

    Carolina Lopes Araujo

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available A dinâmica do crescimento econômico contínuo vigente no capitalismo financeiro tem se mostrado incompatível com os limites planetários. A humanidade se encontra em um impasse ético, econômico e tecnológico. O modelo de produção e consumo vigente se mostra insuficiente para assegurar condições de vida digna para toda a humanidade no presente e aponta para uma deterioração dessas condições em um futuro próximo. Este artigo realiza uma revisão bibliográfica de trabalhos clássicos na teoria do desenvolvimento sustentável e, por meio da abordagem crítica da economia capitalista, coloca em xeque o conceito hegemônico do progresso e aponta a insuficiência do paradigma do crescimento para assegurar o desenvolvimento sustentável. Mesclando e conjugando as ideias dos principais autores dessas áreas, o artigo conclui que a sustentabilidade do desenvolvimento requer condicionantes que, ao longo do tempo, se tornam mais difíceis de serem alcançados. A dinâmica atual do sistema econômico leva a desgastes ambientais com efeitos cada vez mais severos, que serão sentidos especialmente a partir de 2030, podendo chegar a um colapso antes de 2100, comprometendo a capacidade de sobrevivência humana no planeta. A sustentabilidade, a suficiência e a equidade do desenvolvimento exigem uma mudança estrutural no paradigma de produção e de consumo. Para tanto, se fazem necessários mecanismos sociais, institucionais e informacionais, além da adequação e da coordenação dos avanços tecnológicos.

    Where the most Adapted Remain: Stingless Bees Community (Hymenoptera: Apidae, Meliponini in Urban Areas of the City of Uba, Minas Gerais, Brazil Abstract. The urbanization has caused the fragmentation of various natural environments, taking to loss of many ecological processes in which includes pollination, realized mainly by bees, in special Meliponini species, which has drastically reduced their populations due to loss of habitat for urban expansion. The aim of this study was to survey the species of stingless bees in urban areas of the municipality of Ubá - MG, Brazil, relate the richness and abundance of species found with the percentage of occupation of the structural variables of the urban landscape and relate the presence of the species obtained with these variables. Were found 28 nests belonging to four species, Tetragonisca angustula (Latreille, Trigona spinipes (Fabricius, Nannotrigona testaceicornis (Lepeletier and Friesella schrottkyi (Friese. There was no significant relationship between richness and abundance of Meliponini and structural variables of vegetation, possibly due to low values in the number of nests and species obtained. Only T. spinipes showed related to the presence of vegetation. The results show that the Meliponini community is composed by generalist species able to use artificial cavities and ornamental plants as an alternative source of resources, common in urban areas. The results obtained in this study is a warning to current conditions of the plant remaining in urban areas in the city of Ubá, besides may also be used as support in taking-decision on projects for the conservation and recovery of degraded areas, focusing on bees and their importance to the sustainability of these ecosystems.

    The use of reinforced plastics (PR) in the petroleum industry is very incipient when compared to conventional materials such as steel, for example. PR are already being used in floorings and handrails, but still there is not studies about the behavior of these materials when they come into contact with oil. In this context, this work aims to obtain a composite using a matrix of polyester resin, and the fiberglass (E Glass) as material of reinforcement. After the obtention of the composite, proof bodies will be made for the determination of the mechanical properties related to the traction and bending. Some of these proof bodies will be immersed in oil for a period of 120 days. At the end of this period, they will be tested. Thus, the traction and bending of the proof bodies which was immersed will be compared to the other ones, seeking to verify the influence of this immersion on the mechanical properties of the material.

  11. Non-inductive plasmas studies by injection of electron cyclotron waves in the Tore Supra tokamak; Etudes des plasmas non-inductifs par injection d'ondes a la frequence cyclotronique electronique dans le tokamak Tore Supra

    Turco, F

    2008-06-15

    In this work we addressed the issue of the phenomena typical of the non-inductive discharges in the Tore Supra tokamak, probed by means of localised perturbations of the current density profile, performed by electron cyclotron (EC) waves. In order to correctly utilize the current density profile, reconstructed by means of the CRONOS code we performed a sensitivity study on the code results. Concerning the MHD regimes we have shown that a dynamic evolution of the safety factor q which tends to shrink its profile appears to be the cause of the triggering of such regimes. From the operational point of view, deposing the EC current, generated in the same direction of the plasma current, outside the q{sub min} position results hazardous because it causes a rise in q{sub 0} and consequently the shrinking of the q profile which triggers the MHD regimes. On the contrary, the EC counter-current scans show that a very central deposition ({rho}(ECCD) < 0.1) lead almost certainly to an MHD regime, while a more external countercurrent generation has generally the quality of creating internal transport barriers (ITBs). The phenomenon of non-linear temperature oscillations (the O-regime) has also been addressed, to provide an analytical description as well as from the experimental point of view, concerning the triggering and canceling of the oscillating phases. By constructing a non-linear predator-prey system with noise, solved on two regions of space coupled by a diffusion term, we could reproduce the experimental temperature oscillations: this study allowed us to confirm that the oscillatory phenomenon is the manifestation of a Lotka-Volterra like coupling between j and T{sub e}. The experimental analysis led to the identification of the mechanism at the origin of the triggering and canceling of the O-regime in presence of a perturbation in a specific shape of magnetic shear perturbation. These results have been reproduced by the simulations preformed with the integrated modelling code CRONOS. Finally, observations based on an extended database allowed us to document the existence of a tight relation between q{sub 0} passing through low order rational values and the formation of an ITB.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste estudo é analisar as matérias sobre esteróides anabolizantes androgênicos (EAA e doping, publicadas em uma revista especializada em artes marciais, a Tatame, entre os anos 1996 e 2010. Utilizou-se metodologia qualitativa, a partir do referencial fornecido pelas Ciências Sociais e suas interfaces com o campo da Saúde Coletiva. A análise e discussão dos discursos acerca do uso de EAA e doping foram organizados em quatro etapas: na primeira, ocorreu uma leitura abrangente do material jornalístico; na segunda etapa, foram examinadas as matérias, focalizando os títulos, subtítulos e conteúdos. Na terceira, verificou-se o meio circundante dos boxes, capas, contracapas e espaços publicitários da revista. A quarta etapa privilegiou a perspectiva dos lutadores sobre a utilização de EAA e/ou doping, veiculadas tanto nas matérias em que estes usos são o foco central, quanto em reportagens em que estes não são a temática principal. Os resultados indicam um descompasso entre os conteúdos veiculados na imprensa, que, de um lado, condenam o uso de EAA e doping, e de outro, divulgam uma série de estímulos para o desenvolvimento da musculosidade. Desta forma, os conteúdos acabam por corroborar a ideia de uma estreita associação entre musculosidade e um tipo de masculinidade tradicional ancorado na positivação da força e na invencibilidade.This study aims to analyze the materials on anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS and doping, published in a magazine specializing in martial arts, Tatame, between the years 1996 and 2010. We used qualitative methodology, from the benchmark provided by the Social Sciences and its interfaces with Public Health. The analysis and discussion of the discourses about the use of AAS and doping were organized into four phases: first, there was a comprehensive reading of journalistic material; in the second, the subjects were examined, focusing on titles, subtitles and content. In the third, it was the surroundings of boxes, covers, back covers and magazine advertising space. The fourth stage favored the perspective of fighters on the use of EAA and / or doping, conveyed both in matters where these uses are the central focus, as in stories in which they are not the main theme. The results indicate a mismatch between the content conveyed in the press, which, on one hand, condemns the use of AAS and doping, and the other, discloses a series of stimuli for the development of muscularity. Thus, the contents eventually support the idea of close association between muscularity and a kind of traditional masculinity positivization anchored in the strength and invincibility.

  17. Applying of the array transducers' technology for surface acoustic waves materials characterization in the transient regime; Application de la technologie multi-elements a la caracterisation des materiaux par ondes acoustiques de surface en regime impulsionnel

    Frenet, D

    2000-07-01

    In this document we present a theoretical and experimental study which has been led to design a surface acoustic wave device for local characterisation (relatively to the wavelength) of isotropic or anisotropic materials. The device is based on a phased-array transducer of conical shape we have specifically designed for this purpose. It operates in the impulsive mode, in the frequency range of 1-5 MHz. In order to deduce mechanical properties of the material, it is possible to measure the surface wave characteristics (velocity, attenuation,...). Different methods for measuring the wave velocity have been developed taking advantage of from the phased-array technology. The originality of theses methods relies on the fact that the measures are performed without moving the transducer. Consequently, the device requires no additional mechanical system and it is quite compact. In addition, this shortens the characterisation process duration comparatively to the usually available methods (e. g. the V(z) technique). In the theoretical section of this study, a versatile model allowing to simulate in the time harmonic regime as well as in the transient regime, the transmitted field, the field reflected on isotropic or anisotropic planar samples and the output voltage for transducers of arbitrary shapes has been developed. The model has been applied to the phased-array conical transducer as well as to more classical transducers such as planar (rectangular) or focusing (spherically or cylindrically shaped) transducers. It predicts not only the geometrical contributions of the reflected field and signal but also the leaky contributions related to the surface acoustic waves. (author)

In the second category, upper airway infections, day care center attendance, presence of siblings/family size, passive smoking, breastfeeding and use of pacifiers were included. Afterwards, the risk factors were classified in accordance with levels of evidence. CONCLUSIONS: The risk factors established for recurrent acute otitis media and capable of being modified were the use of pacifiers and care in daycare centers. The probable risk factors were privation of mother's milk, presence of siblings, craniofacial abnormalities, passive smoking and presence of adenoids. No modifiable factor was classified as unlikely. Among those that need further study are allergy, gastroesophageal reflux and passive smoking during gestation.

    The scaling up of plasma processes in the low pressure range remains a question to be solved for their rise at the industrial level. One solution is the uniform distribution of elementary plasma sources where the plasma is produced via electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) coupling. These elementary plasma sources are made up of a cylindrical permanent magnet (magnetic dipole) set at the end of a coaxial microwave line. Although of simple concept, the optimisation of these dipolar plasma sources is in fact a complex problem. It requires the knowledge, on one hand, of the configurations of static magnetic fields and microwave electric fields, and, on the other hand, of the mechanisms of plasma production in the region of high intensity magnetic field (ECR condition), and of plasma diffusion. Therefore, the experimental characterisation of the operating ranges and plasma parameters has been performed by Langmuir probes and optical emission spectroscopy on different configurations of dipolar sources. At the same time, in a first analytical approach, calculations have been made on simple magnetic field configurations, motion and trajectory of electrons in these magnetic fields, and the acceleration of electrons by ECR coupling. Then, the results have been used for the validation of the numerical modelling of the electron trajectories by using a hybrid PIC (particle-in-cell) / MC (Monte Carlo) method. The experimental study has evidenced large operating domains, between 15 and 200 W of microwave power, and from 0.5 to 15 mtorr argon pressure. The analysis of plasma parameters has shown that the region of ECR coupling is localised near the equatorial plane of the magnet and dependent on magnet geometry. These characterizations, applied to a cylindrical reactor using 48 sources, have shown that densities between 10{sup 11} and 10{sup 12} cm{sup -3} could be achieved in the central part of the volume at a few mtorr argon pressures. The modelling of electron trajectories near the magnet has also shown a better radial confinement with magnets exhibiting high length over diameter ratios. (author)

In addition, the numerical study corroborates the results of the experimental study, i.e. an ECR coupling region close to the equatorial plane of the magnet and not near the end of the coaxial microwave line. Finally, these results have been successfully applied to plasma assisted sputtering of targets allowing, in particular, their uniform erosion. (author)

    Only optical fiber is able to meet capacity and heterogeneity requirements of the future home network. Plastic or silica multimode fiber would be preferred for lower system costs. Two main multiformat architectures have been identified, based on an active or a passive star. Silica multimode fiber is suitable for an active star but plastic fiber could also be eligible, with its very low cost. Unfortunately, its bandwidth is far too limited.

  4. Development of numerical methods to calculate the propagation and the absorption of the hybrid wave in tokamaks; Developpement des methodes numeriques pour la resolution de la propagation et de l`absorption de l`onde hybride dans les tokamaks

    Sebelin, E

    1997-12-15

    Full-wave calculations based on trial functions are carried out for solving the lower hybrid current drive problem in tokamaks. A variational method is developed and provides an efficient system to describe in a global manner both the propagation and the absorption of the electromagnetic waves in plasmas. The calculation is fully carried out in the case of circular and concentric flux surfaces. The existence and uniqueness of the solution of the wave propagation equation is mathematically proved. The first realistic simulations are performed for the high aspect ratio tokamak TRIAM-1M. It is checked that the main features of the lower-hybrid wave dynamics are well described numerically.

    After a summary of available data, both theoretical and experimental, concerning the spectral content of seismic movements, a description is given of the experiments carried out during the French nuclear explosions in the Sahara, and of the results obtained on the volume waves. A comparison is then made with certain American results. A new method is described for studying the amplitude spectra; it has made it possible to show that the amount of low frequencies in the spectrum increases with the power of the explosion, and decreases with the distance to the zero point and with the filtering effect of the weathered zone. A calculation is then made of the low cut-off ground filter, this giving a better representation of the initial seismic phenomenon. (authors) [French] Apres avoir resume les connaissances disponibles, aussi bien theoriques qu'experimentales, sur le contenu spectral des mouvements seismiques, on decrit les experiences effectuees a l'occasion des explosions nucleaires francaises du Sahara et les resultats obtenus sur les ondes de volume. Puis on les compare avec certains resultats americains. On decrit une nouvelle methode d'etude des spectres d'amplitudes qui montre que le spectre est d'autant plus riche en basses frequences que la puissance de l'explosion est grande, que la distance au point zero est faible et qu'il est moins filtre par la zone alteree superficielle. Puis on calcule le filtre terrain coupe-bas qui permet de donner une representation plus fidele du phenomene seismique initial. (auteurs)

Dans le domaine optique, le premier 'LASER' est realise par MAIMAN en 1960. L'atome actif etait le chrome au sein d'une matrice d'alumine (rubis). le monocristal fluorescent etait place entre deux reflecteurs charges de maintenir dans le mileu une inversion provoquee de population jusqu'a atteindre les conditions d'emission. L'effet laser a permis de realiser beaucoup de generateurs de raies (plusieurs centaines) couvrant la gamme optique avec les mileux tant gazeux que liquides ou solides. Parmi ceux ci, le neodyme presente une transition entre les niveaux 4 F{sub 3/2} et 4 I{sub 11/2} qui a permis la realisation de lasers de tres grande puissance. Ce travail etudie les conditions de formation d'une impulsion declenchee et de son amplification dans le verre dope au neodyme. Des mesures precises des divers rendements interessants dans ces processus nous ont permis de connaitre la valeur de l'inversion de population realisee dans le milieu et d'etudier le detail de l'emission stimulee.

  8. Matrix effects on the crystallization behaviour of butter and roll-in shortening in laminated bakery products.

    Mattice, Kristin D; Marangoni, Alejandro G

    2017-06-01

    Two hydrogenated roll-in shortenings (A & B), one non-hydrogenated roll-in shortening and butter were used to prepare croissants. The impact of the laminated dough matrix on fat crystallization was then investigated using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance (p-NMR) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The fat contained within a croissant matrix has never before been analyzed using these techniques. In each case, XRD revealed that the polymorphism of a roll-in fat will be different when baked within the dough matrix than when simply heated and cooled on its own. Both hydrogenated roll-in shortenings and butter experienced only minor changes, largely retaining their β' polymorphs, but the non-hydrogenated shortening experienced significant conversion from β' to the β form. However, this conversion did not take place immediately upon cooling, but after approximately 24h of storage time. The fat contained within the croissants exhibited a significantly lower SFC than the same fats in bulk. Further, DSC results demonstrated that a greater temperature was required to completely melt all of the fat in a croissant than the same fat in bulk, observed visually as broader peaks in the melting endotherms. Analysis of croissant firmness over storage time, measured as the maximum force required to cut a croissant was used as an indication of potential sensory consequences. Results suggested that only croissants prepared with non-hydrogenated shortening experienced significant changes in firmness over one week of storage. These results indicate that there is an interaction between the shortenings and the ingredients of the croissant matrix, and given the differences observed between roll-in fats used, the extent of interaction is potentially influenced by the composition of the roll-in fat itself.

A crystal chemistry approach for high-power ytterbium doped solid-state lasers: diffusion-bonded crystals and new crystalline hosts; Relations structures-proprietes dans les lasers solides de puissance a l'ytterbium: elaboration et caracterisation de nouveaux materiaux et de cristaux composites soudes par diffusion

    This work deals with ytterbium based crystals for high-power laser applications. In particular, we focus our interest in reducing crystal heating and its consequences during laser operation following two different ways. First, we review the specific properties of ytterbium doped solid-state lasers in order to define a figure-of-merit which gives the evaluation of laser performances, thermo-mechanical and thermo-optical properties. Bearing in mind this analysis, we propose a set of theoretical tools, based on the crystallographic structure of the crystal and its chemical composition, to predict thermo-mechanical and optical potentials. This approach, used for the seek of new Yb{sup 3+}-doped materials for high-power laser applications, shows that simple oxides containing rare-earths are favorable. Therefore, the spectroscopic properties of six new materials Yb{sup 3+}:GdVO{sub 4}, Yb{sup 3+}:GdAlO{sub 3}, Yb{sup 3+}:Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3}, Yb{sup 3+}:Sc{sub 2}SiO{sub 5}, Yb{sup 3+}:CaSc{sub 2}O{sub 4} and Yb{sup 3+}:SrSc{sub 2}O{sub 4} are described. The second aspect developed in this work deals with thermal properties enhancement of already well characterized laser materials. Two different ways are explored: a) elaboration by diffusion bonding of end-caps lasers with undoped crystals (composite crystals). Thus, different composites were obtained and a fairly lowering of thermal lensing effect was observed during laser operation. b) strengthening of crystalline structures by ionic substitution of one of its constituents. We demonstrate how crystal growth ability can be improved by a cationic substitution in the case of Yb{sup 3+}:BOYS, a largely-tunable laser material which is of great interest for femtosecond pulses generation.

    In the framework of the development of a neutral beam injection system for ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), the electrostatic acceleration of negative ion H/D beams up to an energy of 1 MeV has been studied. With the support of 3-D beam trajectory calculations, the limitations of the multi-aperture multi-grid acceleration concept, ITER reference concept, ar shown and the relevance of a new concept, called SINGAP, is demonstrated. In a SINGAP accelerator, beamlets are pre-accelerated with a classical triode multi-apertures system up to {approx} 50 keV. The pre-accelerated beamlets are then merged into a single beam and post-accelerated at high energy through a large SINGle APerture using one SINgle GAP. The optics of one pre-accelerated beamlet has been studied on the INCA triode accelerator at the Ecole Polytechnique. A diagnostic has been developed to measure the emittance of the pre-accelerated beamlet. A diagnostic has been developed to measure the emittance of the pre-accelerated beamlet. Values of {approx} 0.03{pi}.mrad.cm for the effective normalized emittance and {approx} 12 mrad for the minimal beam divergence have been found (Hbeams). Besides, the effects of co-extracted electrons and pressure in the transport region on the beam optics are shown and experiment is compared to beam numerical simulation. On the Cadarache 1 MeV, 100 mA, D- SINGAP accelerator, beams of 1 s pulse were produced at a level of 900 keV (without observing breakdowns between electrodes). SINGAP optics has been investigated using an infrared calorimetric beam profile diagnostic (2-D) and a neutral beam profile diagnostic (1-D). The control of the beam optics is very satisfying: a divergence of {approx} 10 mrad has been measured, and 3-D simulations and experimentation are in good agreement. (author) 117 refs.

    In modern hybrid or monolithic integrated power circuits, electrothermal effects can no longer be ignored. A methodology is proposed in order to simulate electrothermal effects in power circuits, with a significant reduction of the computation time while taking into account electrical and thermal time constants which are usually widely different. A supervising program, written in Fortran, uses system call sequences and manages an interactive dialog between a fast thermal simulator and a general electrical simulator. This explicit coupling process between two specific simulators requires a multi-task operating system. The developed software allows for the prediction of the electrothermal power dissipation drift in the active areas of components, and the prediction of thermally-induced coupling effects between adjacent components. An application to the study of hard switching circuits working under variable operating conditions is presented

    This document presents a study of the electrical and energetic behaviour of super-capacitors under conditions similar to industrial applications' ones. For that, a test bench has been developed in our laboratory in order to characterize a super-capacitors' module (112 F-48 V) composed of 24 elements of 2700 F/2,3 V. The goal of this work was firstly to evaluate the precision of the existing model about the electrical and energetic characteristics and secondly to improve this precision. For that, two models representing the energetic and electrical behaviour of these components are developed. These models are obtained by a simple identification of the data measured during the cycling tests using frequency and temporal approaches. Numerous electrical and thermal data are obtained during the cycling test of the module. These data are used to observe the evolution of the equivalent capacity and resistance of several super-capacitor elements of the tested module according to the temperature. For the first 200.000 cycles, the ageing process of super-capacitors and the variation of the module parameters during all the life of this tested module are presented. This study allowed to obtain information about the degradation (R, rs and C) according to the number of cycles carried out. Finally, the tests of cycling done without balancing device (except the impedance of the measurement system) allow to observe a natural dispersion of the voltage according to the position of the components in the module.

    This thesis deals with a new switching process which integrates the semiconductor protection directly in the switching principle, in order to generate new static converters. It consists of a self-controlled transition which proceeds on a non-zero current or voltage level. 2 It can be associated with controlled or naturally switching processes making it possible to go from two to five change of state types of a switching cell. So, new elementary operation rules of a switching cell emerge. Considering the great number of possible switches, a synthesis methodology of cells with a source reversibility, whose switches are identical, is presented making it possible to reveal various solutions, of which two seem particularly interesting: the self-breaking inverter and rectifier cells, both using the self-breaking thyristor-dual. This last is used as study support of the self-breaking principle. Then, the manuscript concentrates on the study of converters, associations of elementary cells, revealing in particular the DC-current transformer and the reversible three-phase self-breaking rectifier. This last had been developed as an industrial prototype. Lastly, starting from the concept of a wind chain, our assembly has been compared with what is presently done as network converters, revealing lesser losses as well as a higher energetic efficiency.

    In order to study the power transients effects on PWR fuel rod clad, ramp tests in a pressurized water loop, are carried out at OSIRIS reactor. The present thesis deals with the on-line control of the device, during power ramp and conditioning irradiation. Based on a convolution-type resolution of the kinetics equations, a dynamic compensation of the Silver self-powered neutron detector was developed. With this method, the uncertainty of the ramp end-point is lower than 1%, thus it is very suited for monitoring both transient, as well as steady state conditions. Furthermore, a thermohydraulic model of the irradiation device is described: heat transfer equations, including gamma heating in materials, are solved to obtain temperatures and thermal fluxes of steady states. Results from the model and temperature measurements of the coolant are used together for fuel power determination, in real time. The clad external temperature profile is also calculated and displayed, to improve the irradiation monitoring. (author), 51 refs., 12 annexes, 66 figs.

  1. Prospects for the Use of Plutonium in Reactors; Prospective d'Utilisation du Plutonium dans les Reacteurs

    The introduction, at an increasing rate, of power reactors using slightly enriched uranium will inevitably lead to the production of considerable quantities of plutonium over the next decade. Fast reactors will not be capable of absorbing this material before 1980. The question thus arises of whether one should store the plutonium far future use in fast reactors, recycle it in existing thermal reactors, or try to sell it. The problem has been studied for an electric power generating system that does not foresee selling the plutonium produced by its reactors and does not buy plutonium outside, which enables a good approximation to be made and eliminates the major unknown quantity represented by the future market price of plutonium. Assuming within this system a programme that provides for the construction of power reactors of a given type and capacity at specific dates, the utilization of the plutonium produced can be optimized by linear programming techniques so as to minimize the discounted total cost of the power generated over a given period. A later stage consists in optimizing, by various techniques, not only the utilization but also the production of plutonium by appropriate selection of the power reactor types to be constructed. (author) [French] L'implantation, a un rythme croissant, de centrales nucleaires a uranium legerement enrichi entrainera la production ineluctable d'une quantite importante de plutonium au cours de la prochaine decennie.

  2. Electromagnetic Gauge Study of Laser-Induced Shock Waves in Aluminium Alloys

    Peyre, P.; Fabbro, R.

    1995-12-01

    The laser-shock behaviour of three industrial aluminum alloys has been analyzed with an Electromagnetic Gauge Method (EMV) for measuring the velocity of the back free surface of thin foils submitted to plane laser irradiation. Surface pressure, shock decay in depth and Hugoniot Elastic Limits (HEL) of the materials were investigated with increasing thicknesses of foils to be shocked. First, surface peak pressures values as a function of laser power density gave a good agreement with conventional piezoelectric quartz measurements. Therefore, comparison of experimental results with computer simulations, using a 1D hydrodynamic Lagrangian finite difference code, were also in good accordance. Lastly, HEL values were compared with static and dynamic compressive tests in order to estimate the effects of a very large range of strain rates (10^{-3} s^{-1} to 10^6 s^{-1}) on the mechanical properties of the alloys. Cet article fait la synthèse d'une étude récente sur la caractérisation du comportement sous choc-laser de trois alliages d'aluminium largement utilisés dans l'industrie à travers la méthode dite de la jauge électromagnétique. Cette méthode permet de mesurer les vitesses matérielles induites en face arrière de plaques d'épaisseurs variables par un impact laser. La mise en vitesse de plaques nous a permis, premièrement, de vérifier la validité des pressions d'impact superficielles obtenues en les comparant avec des résultats antérieurs obtenus par des mesures sur capteurs quartz. Sur des plaques d'épaisseurs croissantes, nous avons caractérisé l'atténuation des ondes de choc en profondeur dans les alliages étudiés et mesuré les limites d'élasticité sous choc (pressions d'Hugoniot) des alliages. Les résultats ont été comparés avec succès à des simulations numériques grâce à un code de calcul monodimensionnel Lagrangien. Enfin, les valeurs des pressions d'Hugoniot mesurées ont permis de tracer l'évolution des contraintes d

    nombre croissant de conférences et d'articles portant sur l'analyse en ondelettes durant ces dix dernières années témoigne de l'intérêt de cette technique (Proceedings 1992. En effet, la transformée en ondelettes a été appliquée dans de nombreux domaines scientifiques tels que le traitement des signaux sismiques (P. Goupillaud et al. , 1985; J. M. Combes et al. , 1989, l'acoustique (0. Rioul, M. Veterli, 1991, le codage d'image et de signal (S. Mallat, 1989, l'étude de processus stochastiques ou l'analyse fractale (M. Basseville, A.

En effet, nous obtenons des résolutions fréquentielles et temporelles différentes selon la position de la cellule étudiée dans le plan Temps-Fréquence (fig. 2. Les études en hautes fréquences permettront d'avoir une très bonne résolution temporelle alors qu'une analyse en basses fréquences favorisera une bonne mesure fréquentielle.

    The human became able to stay in the space for a long term. This is very important to step forward to the first step for Mars emigration. The long-term stay in the space has a big great stress. The space foods are important to keep a body and mind from those stress. The maintenance of the function of the astronaut of immunity and a meal for the hormone to keep the balance are necessary. As for both the space foods and the disaster meal, room-temperature preservation is possible for a long term. However, the taste is important to even disaster food. The person is repeated if not delicious and cannot eat disaster foods. The sensuality test result about the taste of the disaster food is important.

The bean-jam bun is very familiar bread for a Japanese. Because a lot of dietary fibers were good for health as for the buran croissant, an evaluation was high. We think that it is similar in the space foods. It is necessary to think about a universal meal in the space foods. We think that it is necessary to prepare the food which a person of the whole world likes.

    A polyolefin surface becomes wettable when treated by micro-wave plasma or low-dose nitrogen ion implantation. A short time argon plasma treatment is sufficient to obtain polarizable peroxides on a polyolefin. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy analyses, paramagnetic electronic resonance analyses, peroxides decomposition, wettability measurements and infrared active spectra analyses have shown that oxidized structures obtained from different treatment techniques play an important role in the interpretation of surface chemical properties of the polymer. Micro-wave plasma treatment, and in particular argon plasma treatment, yields more polarizable groups than ion implantation and is interesting for grafting. Hardness and elasticity modulus, measured by nano-indentation on a polyolefin, increase with an appropriate ion implantation dose. A 1.4 x 10{sup 17} ions.cm{sup -2} dose can multiply by 15 the hardness of high molecular weight polyethylene, and by 7 the elasticity modulus for a 30 nm depth. The viscous-plastic to quasi-elastic transition is shown. The thickness of the modified layer is over 300 nm. The study of friction between a metal sphere and a polyethylene cupula shows that ion implantation in the polymer creates a reticulated hard and elastic layer which improves its mechanical properties and reduces the erosion rate. Surface treatments on polymers used as biomaterials allow to adapt the surface properties to specific applications. 107 refs., 66 figs., 19 tabs., 4 annexes.

    The propagation of an alkaline wave through a clay rock has been investigated- The wave is generated by a cementitious matrix through the Callovo-Oxfordian argillite of the Meuse Haute-Marne Laboratory (-480 m depth). The argillite itself is composed of quartz, micas, calcite and an interstratified l/S. In order to characterise the interactions between the alkaline fluid and the argillaceous medium, dynamic column experiments have been carried out. The originality of the investigation methodology consists in exploiting the data generated from the breakthrough curves as well as from the characterisation of the solids extracted from the columns. Two types of processes having totally different reaction times have hence been thoroughly studied: - Fast surface adsorption and condensation reactions: On the one hand cation adsorption reactions by site ionisation have been characterised. They are responsible of the buffering effect of the clays. On the other hand an original reaction of calcium compound condensation in the interlayer space of the swelling clays has been revealed. These processes have been modelled and their simulations with the IMPACT calculation code showed that the models elaborated were very satisfying. - Strongly kinetically limited dissolution/precipitation reactions: The main primary phases dissolved are quartz and interstratified l/S. The precipitation of secondary phases are mainly C(A)SH and zeolites. After the injection of an alkaline fluid for 6 months at 60 deg C, the argillite is strongly amorphized but only 20 to 30% of the quartz and the interstratified I/S are dissolved. Therefore, dissolution kinetics of the primary phases and the solubility products of the main secondary phases have been determined. (author)

    Philippe, F

    2001-12-15

    This work aims at measuring the equation of state of porous plastic materials in the view of their use in inertial confinement fusion. We have experimentally determined the shock polar curve of TMPTA (C{sub 15}H{sub 20}O{sub 6}) by the use of the impedance matching technique. This technique is based on the simultaneous measurement of the shock velocities in the 2 materials composing the target. The shock polar curve has been drawn for pressures ranging from 10 kbar to 3 Mbar and densities from 20 mg/cm{sup 3} to 1.1 g/cm{sup 3}. The use of a slit sweep camera to assess the propagation of the shock wave through the target has limited the accuracy of the technique to 10%. Experimental results match well data provided by the Sesame tables that are broadly used by hydrodynamic codes. Nevertheless the statistical distribution of experimental points seems to show a lower compressibility of the foam that might be attributed to a slight pre-heating process or to the effect of the foam micro-structure on the shock wave propagation. In order to improve the accuracy of the method, an attempt was made to use an active doppler interferometric diagnostic to measure shock wave velocities. It has been showed that the shock wave front in the foam is reflecting enough to make this method relevant if we can overcome the difficulty of a high luminous background. Despite that, we have succeeded in measuring with high accuracy, a point of the shock polar curve for 800 mg/cm{sup 3} dense TMPTA. (A.C.)

    The density profile of the fusion plasmas can be investigated by the reflectometry diagnostics. The measurement principle is based on the radar techniques which calculate the phase shift of a millimeter wave propagating into the plasma and reflected at a cut-off layer. However, this propagation is perturbed by the plasma turbulence. These phenomena affect the phase delay measurement by not well understood a process. In this work we have tried to find the mechanisms and origin of the turbulence which is responsible for the phase disturbance. We point out the role of collisionality and plasma radiation in controlling the instability and also, demonstrate that the phase delay of the probing wave is very sensitive to the plasma MHD phenomena and is less affected by the micro-turbulence. The second part of this work is the development and the use of a new heterodyne reflectometer. The principal characteristics are given. Its heterodyne detection allows the separation of phase and amplitude information from the detected signal and then to study their contribution to the mechanism of signal perturbation. The use of this reflectometer allows us to point out the following points: - a high dynamic availability, required by the large amplitude drops, often greater than 30 db; - fast sweep operation requirement to `freeze` the plasma turbulence; - multiple reflection effects which modulate the amplitude and phase of the probing wave if they are not suppressed by filtering the detected signal; - very good localisation of the measurement (of the order of millimeter). The heterodyne reflectometer developed during this work offers several advantages of different distinct reflectometry techniques (fast sweep, absolute and differential phase measurements, heterodyne detection). It could be developed to work over higher frequency range so as to measure density profile over larger radial extension with very high performances. (author) 93 refs., 101 figs., 8 tabs. 3 ills.

  11. La propagande cachée sur les ondes de la BBC pendant la Seconde Guerre Mondiale : vers une héroïsation nationale Hidden propaganda and national hero-making on the BBC Home Service during the Second World War

    Cécile Vallée

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available With the aim of maintaining morale on the Home Front, as well as getting the British population to trust in final victory, the British government put in place a hidden control of the BBC, which was regularly instructed as to what broadcast form propaganda should take on the Home Service. These secret, regular and precise guidelines were to result in the projection of an ultra-positive image of Great Britain and of the British at war. The systematic hero-making propaganda was to become gradually better organised, more subtle, and therefore more efficient as the years went by thanks to the expertise of BBC staff. Countless programmes were broadcast, which stressed the heroic virtues of British soldiers, of the Navy and of the R.A.F, or reminded the listeners of past heroes, the glorious history of Great Britain being systematically commemorated, thus exalting national pride daily. To the constant cult of the heroes of the Home Front (particularly of women corresponded an equally constant denigration of the Nazi enemy. Although there was no recourse to lies, the way both the military and the Home Front were presented was undoubtedly of a propaganda nature. Indeed, the aim was to win the hearts and minds of the British population by playing on two chords: on the one hand, turning the enemy into an evil beast, minimising defeats and difficulties, and, on the other hand, systematically extolling the power and glory of Great Britain and the innate qualities of the British.

  13. Study of lower hybrid wave propagation and absorption in a tokamak plasma using hard X-Ray tomography; Etude de la propagation et de l'absorption de l'onde hybride dans un plasma de tokamak par tomographie X haute energie

    Imbeaux, F

    1999-09-22

    Control of the current density profile is a critical issue in view to obtain high fusion performances in tokamak plasmas? It is therefore important to be able to control the power deposition profile of the lower hybrid wave, which has the highest current drive efficiency among all other non-inductive additional methods. Propagation and absorption of this wave are investigated in the Tore Supra tokamak using a new hard x-ray tomographic system and a new ray-tracing/Fokker-Planck code. These tools are described in detail and allow to analyse the lower hybrid power deposition profile dependence as a function of various plasma parameters (density, magnetic field, current) and of the injected wave spectrum. A good agreement between the code and the measurements found when the central electron temperature is greater than about 3 keV, that is in regimes where the wave undergoes only a few reflections before being absorbed. The simulations are then used to interpret the experimental trends. The lower hybrid power deposition profile is in nearly all discharges localised at a normalised minor radius of 0.2-0.3, and is weakly sensitive to variations of plasma parameters. It is hence difficult to perform an efficient control of the current profile generated by the lower hybrid wave in Tore Supra. This goal may nevertheless be reached by using an original method, which uses an auxiliary lower hybrid wave injected by a vertical port of the torus. This method is investigated by means of the simulation code. (author)

    Full Text Available Coastal areas and their associated ecosystems are under pressure by human uses and activities, leading to major changes in these environments. Those changes have led to loss of ecosystem services and benefits affecting populations that depend directly or indirectly on these services. Thus, the integrated coastal management should work towards maintenance and improvement of human well-being, preventing coastal environment impacts with operating and strategic instruments. One of these instruments might be the Municipal Urban Plan, which should absorb the principles of urban planning conservation or, in some cases, recover environmental functions of the systems supporting services and benefits. According to the management plan for Carijós Protected Area, the surrounding areas of salt marsh, mangroves and coastal vegetation play an important role as a buffer zone to the impacts of urbanization. Therefore, it is important to compare the current proposal of occupation for this area according to the Florianópolis’ urban plan, to the use restrictions provided by the environmental legislation. It is also important to quantify potential ecosystem and its associated service losses resulting from the zoning proposed by the urban plan. This work was based on a survey of vegetation, waterways and occupation, and the legal restrictions applied. The results were compared to the Florianópolis’ urban plan. Ecosystems and its ecosystem services were analyzed regarding the possibly of impacts due to the implementation of the plan, using map and image overlap. Based on the results it is concluded that the urban plan is at odds with the environmental legislation, as well as the laws involving prevention of natural disasters. From the analysis of ecosystem services related to the various environments potentially affected by the urban plan a catastrophic scenario can be predicted, not only to the biodiversity, but also to the social welfare.

The study and the realization of radiation detectors made from polycrystalline diamond films grown by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition technique; Etude et realisation de detecteurs de rayonnements a base de films de diamant polycristallin elabores par depot chimique en phase vapeur assiste par plasma micro-onde

    Jany, Ch

    1998-10-29

    The aim of this work was to develop radiation detectors made from polycrystalline diamond films grown by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition technique. The influence of surface treatments, contact technology and diamond growth parameters on the diamond detectors characteristics was investigated in order to optimise the detector response to alpha particles. The first part of the study focused on the electrical behaviour of as-deposited diamond surface, showing a p type conduction and its influence on the leakage current of the device. A surface preparation process was established in order to reduce the leakage current of the device by surface dehydrogenation using an oxidising step. Several methods to form and treat electrical contacts were also investigated showing that the collection efficiency of the device decreases after contact annealing. In the second part, we reported the influence of the diamond deposition parameters on the characteristics of the detectors. The increase of the deposition temperature and/or methane concentration was shown to lead {eta} to decrease. In contrast, {eta} was found to increase with the micro-wave power. The evolution of the diamond detector characteristics results from the variation in sp{sup 2} phases incorporation and in the crystallography quality of the films. These defects increase the leakage current and reduce the carrier mobility and lifetime. Measurements carried out on detectors with different thicknesses showed that the physical properties varies along the growth direction, improving with the film thickness. Finally, the addition of nitrogen (> 10 ppm) in the gas mixture during diamond deposition was found to strongly reduce the collection efficiency of the detectors. To conclude the study, we fabricated and characterised diamond devices which were used for thermal neutron detection and for the intensity and shape measurement of VUV and soft X-ray pulses.

Determination of electromagnetic modes in oversized corrugated waveguides on the electron cyclotron resonance heating installation at the tokamak Tore Supra; Determination de modes electromagnetiques de guides d'ondes corrugues surdimensionnes sur l'installation de chauffage des electrons de tokamak Tore Supra

    Courtois, L

    2001-03-09

    Electron cyclotron resonance heating (ECRH) in the Tore Supra tokamak constitutes an important step in the research aimed at obtaining thermonuclear fusion reactions. Electron heating is achieved by transmitting an electromagnetic wave from the oscillators (gyrotrons) to the plasma via the fundamental mode, propagating in oversized corrugated waveguides. Maximizing the proportion of the gyrotron power coupled to the fundamental waveguide mode is essential for the good functioning of the transmission line and for maximizing the effect on the plasma. This thesis gives all necessary tools for finding the proportion of the fundamental mode and all other modes present in passive components and at the output of the gyrotron as installed in the Tore Supra ECRH plant. This characterisation is based on obtaining amplitude and phase diagrams of the electric field on a plane transverse to the propagation axis. The most difficult part of obtaining these diagrams is measuring the phase which, despite the very short wavelength, is measured directly at low power levels. At high power levels the phase is numerically reconstructed from amplitude measurements for gyrotron characterisation. A complete theoretical study of the phase reconstruction code is given including its validation with theoretical diagrams. This study allows the realisation of a modal characterisation unit electromagnetic for measurement of radiated beams and usable in each part of the ECRH installation. At the end, the complete modal characterisation is given at low level for a mode converter and also at high level for the first series gyrotron installed at TORE SUPRA. (author)

Ultrasonic waves scattering through dissimilar welds: application to characterisation of spurious echoes detected during inspection; Etude de la diffusion des ondes ultrasonores dans les soudures austeno-ferritiques: application a la caracterisation des echos de lignes observes lors du controle des soudures bimetalliques

    Ahmed, F

    Ultrasonic testing of bimetallic welds can show the presence of structural echoes. In pulse echo mode inspections at oblique incidence, these echoes are detected close to the back-wall (surface opposite to the control). These echoes have a specific shape: the amplitude is distributed along lines parallel to the weld sides. Such echoes can disturb the inspection: they can be misinterpreted as provided by a defect, or they can mask a possible defect. The aim of this thesis is to explain this phenomenon with an interpretation based on the anisotropic property of the weld. In such a structure, specific mode conversions in the lasts welding pass arise. Mode converted waves can reflect normally on the back-wall and therefore back propagate to the transducer along the same wave path as the forward propagation. Some generalities of ultrasonic testing of bimetallic welds are given in a preliminary chapter. In the first chapter, various experiments showed that these structural echoes do not result from beam deflection in the weld and that this phenomenon occurs in the last millimeters under the back-wall. According to these results, an interpretation for these echoes based on the anisotropic and the inhomogeneous structure of the weld is given in the last welding pass, oblique compression waves may be converted into normal shear waves. The second chapter presented a theoretical analysis of these mode conversions phenomenon between two metallurgical structures with different dendrite orientations. The analysis of the welding passes metallography and a bibliographic study summarizes on the relevancy to use a orthotropic symmetry to describe the metallurgical structure of the material under test. The third chapter deals with experimental studies to confirm this hypothesis. Detection of shear waves in the last welding passes near the back-wall mock-up using a specific sensor, able to discriminate the polarisation wave at the reception, validate the mode conversion hypothesis. The last chapter aims to model the ultrasonic wave propagation conditions in the weld in the neighbourhood of different welding passes. This model represents aparametric study dealing with the refraction of 0 deg shear waves (phase and energy velocity normal to the back-wall) from longitudinal waves according to the dendrite orientation. Therefore, these results and the parametric study allow to establish the optimal configuration testing to avoid these structural echoes. (author)

    The Clean Technology Fund (CTF) was set up in 2008 to provide funding, especially subsidies, on an industrial scale for projects that experiment with, deploy or transfer low-carbon technology, which can potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly in the long run. The CTF helps multilateral development banks providing the funds needed, and giving a boost to experiments with low-carbon techniques, while waiting for the conclusion of the negotiations conducted by the United Nations on climate change. The World Bank manages this temporary fund. The article presents the use of CTF as a catalyzer to lower costs, to create a viable market and to attract important financing for the development of concentrating solar plants in Middle East and North-Africa countries

    The test procedures are described which have been developed in the Reactor Fuel Element Laboratories as part of the Reactor Group's development programme on fuel pins for a number of reactor systems. The sheaths of these pins are tubes in the range 5 mm- 15 mm diam; the materials are stainless steels and zirconium alloys. (a) Flaw detection in tubes is described. Ultrasonic inspection using two immersed probes. The tubes are traversed helically at high speeds through a stationary tank. Flaw signals are monitored and recorded. Spark-machined slots on the surfaces of tubes are used as references in setting up the system and in checking its stability. Eddy-current inspection is also employed in some cases. Two tests are described: an encircling coil system with rapid throughput, and a surface coil with helical scan. Phase selection and filtering of the output from a bridge circuit is used, at frequencies between 30 and 60 kHz. (b) Dimensional inspection of tubes and pellets is also discussed. Various mechanical, pneumatic, nuclear and electronic methods of measuring the tube dimensions are compared and the arrangements to prevent the scratching of the tubes are described. Techniques for measuring pellet diameter and circumferences are explained and it is suggested that with thin-walled tubes a more realistic approach to the pellet/gap problems can be obtained by comparing circumferences. With the development of efficient tube-traversing equipment it has been possible to combine the above development technique to form a completely integrated tube-testing facility operated by semi-skilled labour. The laboratory's requirement for precise information of tube sizes has been met by the automatic recording of measurements, eliminating a time-consuming and somewhat inaccurate method of manual recording of the results. For flaw detection in fuel pins, the techniques already mentioned can in general be applied to examine the sheaths of fuel pins, i.e. after fuel has been loaded and the ends closed. In addition, the integrity of end closures is established, by radiography. Multiple exposures are commonly made to examine the whole of circumferential weld adequately. The disposition of the fuel can also be recorded accurately by using a panoramic technique. The use of colour radiography is also discussed. Pins are normally tested for leakage after filling with helium, using a mass-spectrometer leak detector. Pins not filled with helium may be tested using a ''back-pressurizing'' technique. Conventional ''probing'' and ''sniffing'' methods are used when it is desirable to locate the sites of leaks. The bubble test in liquids is also used, as a cheap and simple test. The use of krypton-85 as a tracer gas is discussed. (author) [French] Les auteurs decrivent les methodes d'essai que les laboratoires charges des elements combustibles ont elaborees dans le cadre du programme etabli par le en vue de mettre au point des aiguilles de combustible pour diverses filieres de reacteurs. Ces aiguilles sont contenues dans des gaines de 5 a 15 mm de diametre, les materiaux utilises etant des aciers inoxydables et des alliages de zirconium, a) Detection de defauts dans les gaines. Examen par ultrasons a l'aide de deux traducteurs immerges. Les tubes sont animes d'un mouvement helicoidal rapide dans un reservoir fixe. Chaque signal de defaut est verifie et enregistre. Pour regler le dispositif et verifier sa stabilite, on utilise comme temoins des fentes'pratiquees a l'arc a la surface des tubes. Dans certains cas, on a egalement recours au controle par courants de Foucault. Les auteurs decrivent deux procedes: l'un, a debit rapide, est fonde sur un systeme de bobines encerclant le tube; l'autre, a exploration heliccfldale, utilise une bobine se deplacant le long du tube. Les signaux fournis par un circuit a pont sont selectionnes selon la phase et filtres, pour des frequences de 30 a 60 kHz. b) Controle des dimensions de tubes et de pastilles. Diverses methodes mecaniques, pneumatiques, nucleaires et electriques permettant de mesurer les dimensions des tubes font l'objet d'une etude comparative. On decrit les mesures qui sont prises pour ne pas rayer la surface des tubes. Les auteurs exposent les procedes employes pour mesurer le diametre et la circonference des pastilles; pour les tubes a paroi mince, les problemes que pose le rapport entre le volume des pastilles et celui des vides pourraient etre traites de facon plus realiste en comparant les circonferences. La mise au point d'un appareil efficace de rotation des tubes a permis de combiner les methodes decrites ci-dessus et de construire un dispositif d'essai entierement integre dont l'utilisation ne necessite pas un personnel hautement qualifie. Pour que le Laboratoire puisse obtenir rapidement des renseignements precis sur les dimensions des tubes, on procede a l'enregistrement automatique des mesures; on a ainsi supprime l'operation, lente et quelque peu inexacte, d'enregistrement a la main. En ce qui concerne la detection des defauts dans les aiguilles de combustible, les methodes exposees sous le point a) peuvent, en regle generale, servir a examiner les gaines d'aiguilles de combustible apres le chargement du combustible et l'obturation des extremites. En plus, l'etat des bouchons terminaux est verifie par radiographie. On fait normalement des expositions multiples pour examiner convenablement toute la peripherie des soudures. On peut egalement determiner avec precision la repartition du combustible par radiographie panoramique. Le recours a la radiographie en couleurs est egalement etudie. L'etancheite des aiguilles est verifiee apres remplissage d'helium au moyen d'un detecteur de fuites a spectrometre de masse. Les aiguilles ne contenant pas d'helium peuvent etre controlees par immersion dans un milieu sous pression. Pour localiser les fuites, on peut appliquer, le cas echeant, des methodes d'investigation classiques. On utilise aussi le procede simple et peu couteux qui consiste a plonger la piece dans un liquide et a observer la formation de bulles. Enfin, les auteurs discutent l'emploi du krypton-85 comme radioindicateur. (author) [Spanish] Los procedimientos de ensayo que se exponen han sido establecidos en el Laboratorio de combustibles nucleares, como parte del programa del Grupo correspondiente, relativo a varillas de combustible para reactores de distintos tipos. La vainas de esas varillas consisten en tubos de acero inoxidable o aleaciones de circonio de 5 a 15 mm de diametro. a) Se describe la localizacion de fallas o grietas en los tubos. Inspeccion ultrasonica con dos sondas sumergidas. Los tubos se someten a un barrido helicoidal a gran velocidad en un tanque estacionario, con lo cual se observan y registran las senales que denotan la existencia de fallas. Para calibrar el sistema y comprobar su estabilidad, se usan como referencias unas ranuras practicadas por chisporroteo. En ciertos casos se recurre tambien a la inspeccion mediante corrientes de Foucault. Los dos metodos que se describen emplean un sistema de bobina anular de pasaje rapido y una bobina superficial con exploracion helicoidal. Para la seleccion de fases y filtrado de la senal de salida se una un circuito de puente, con frecuencias comprendidas entre 30 y 60 kHz. b) Se discute ademas la inspeccion de las dimensiones de tubos y pastillas. Se hace un estudio comparativo de diversos metodos mecanicos, neumaticos, nucleares y electronicos de medicion de las dimensiones de los tubos, y se explican las precauciones que han de adoptarse para impedir que estos se rayen. Se describen tecnicas para medir el diametro y la longitud de la circunferencia de las pastillas y se recomienda la comparacion de las circunferencias, en el caso de tubos delgados, como metodo mas ajustado a la realidad para el estudio de los problemas que plantea la existencia de huecos entre las paredes del tubo y las pastillas. El perfeccionamiento de equipo para el desplazamiento transversal de tubos ha permitido, mediante una combinacion de tecnicas, instalar un dispositivo de ensayo que puede ser manejado por personal semiespeciali- zado. Las necesidades del Laboratorio en cuanto a datos de precision sobre las dimensiones de los tubos pueden satisfacerse con un sistema automatico que registra los datos y permite prescindir del metodo laborioso y algo inexacto de anotacion manual de los resultados. En el caso de la localizacion de fallas en las varillas de combustible, el metodo expuesto en el parrafo a) puede utilizarse en general para examinar los tubos de revestimiento despues de haber efectuado la carga del combustible y de haber cerrado los extremos del tubo; ademas, la integridad del cierre se comprueba radiograficamente. Para verificar adecuadamente el estado de una soldadura circular, se toman varias radiografias. Utilizando una tecnica panoramica puede tambien registrarse con exactitud la disposicion del combustible. Se estudia ademas la posibilidad de utilizar la radiografia cromatica. La deteccion de escapes en las varillas de combustible suele realizarse utilizando un espectrometro de masas despues de haber procedido al rellenado con helio. Si este no es posible, puede aplicarse un procedimiento de contrapresion. Para localizar los escapes se utilizan los metodos ordinarios de sondeo o 'rastreo'. Un procedimiento sencillo y poco oneroso aplicable cuando se trata de lfquidos, es el de burbujeo. Se estudia la posibilidad de utilizar el kripton-85. como gas indicador.

    enseignements qui ont ete fournis, aux points de vue technique et economique, par l'etude, la construction et l'exploitation des premieres centrales nucleaires, et qui peuvent etre particulierement utiles pour l'implantation de nouvelles centrales de ce genre dans l'avenir, notamment eu egard aux conditions qui regnent en Italie. La technologie actuelle des reacteurs et les progres qu'elle continue de faire revelent une tendance marquee vers la reduction du cout, non seulement des cycles de combustible, mais aussi des elements de la centrale. Cette evolution se trouve d'ailleurs favorisee par la tendance croissante a construire des centrales plus grandes et par le fait que l'etude du developpement du reseau electrique semble indiquer que, sur le plan economique, il y a plus d' avantage ainstaller des centrales nucleaires plus puissantes que d'augmenter la puissance des centrales classiques. Se fondant sur l'experience acquise concernant l'etu de, la construction et l'essai des divers types de centrales existantes, l'auteur donne un apercu des principaux facteurs dont il convient de tenir compte lors de l'etablissement des programmes futurs. Il insiste sur le probleme de l'isolement, vu les incidences favorables que peut avoir sur le choix du site de la centrale la mise au point d'ecrans de protection tres surs, qui puissent etre construits sans augmentation sensible du prix de revient, en tirant notamment parti, pour resoudre certains aspects de ce probleme, des conditions particulieres qui se trouvent reunies en Italie. Quant a l'experience du fonctionnement de certaines centrales d'un modele eprouve, l'auteur examine dans quelle mesure ces installations peuvent etre construites sans difficulte et satisfaire la demande du reseau; il se refere ici egalement au role croissant qu'il est prevu d'attribuer a l'energie d'origine nucleaire en Italie. Enfin, l'auteur souligne a quel point le rassemblement et l'interpretation des donnees relatives aux trois centrales, qui doivent

  18. Les difficultés de la filière brésilienne face à la nouvelle organisation mondiale du négoce des pierres de couleur As dificuldades da cadeia produtiva brasileira diante da nova organização do mercado mundial de gemas de cor The Brazilian commodity chain difficulties facing the new world trade organization of colored gemstones

    Aurélien Reys

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available Les filières des pierres de couleur, à l’image de la plupart des ressources naturelles exploitées, ont longtemps représenté un négoce hiérarchisé largement dominé par les principales puissances occidentales. Leur organisation serait à présent en pleine restructuration notamment sous l’influence croissante d’acteurs originaires d’Asie. La nouvelle division des tâches et la multipolarisation du commerce ne profiteraient toutefois pas à la majorité des pays extracteurs qui connaitraient toujours d’importantes difficultés à jouer un rôle autre que celui strictement en lien avec les activités d’extraction. Le Brésil, considéré comme l’une des plus grandes réserves de pierres de couleur au monde, n’aurait semble-t-il pas réussi à tirer profit de cette réorganisation du commerce. En effet, bien qu’il réussisse à l’inverse de nombreux autres pays extracteurs à tailler une partie des pierres extraites, les gemmes à l’état brut continuent de constituer une grande part de ses exportations. Cette situation se traduirait depuis quelques années par une stagnation de ses bénéfices, d’autant plus que les acteurs locaux doivent désormais faire face à de nouvelles sources de concurrence, en provenance d’Afrique de l’Est pour les activités d’extraction et de Chine pour celles de taille et de commerce. Néanmoins, l’élévation du niveau de vie des populations à l’échelle mondiale permet d’envisager à long terme une croissance positive de ce type de négoce. La cartographie mondiale du commerce des gemmes est dès lors certainement loin d’être aboutie, laissant encore une certaine marge de manœuvre pour des pays comme le Brésil, ce dernier pouvant de plus compter sur une classe moyenne nationale en pleine croissance qui pourrait à terme constituer une nouvelle source de demande.As diferentes cadeias produtivas mundiais de gemas de cor, assim como a exploração da maioria das riquezas

    oxyde de polypropylène -oxyde de polyéthylène nonylphénol avec longueur de chaîne EO variable et une série composée d'un copolymère à bloc ABA d'oxyde de polypropylène- oxyde de polyéthylène avec longueur de chaîne EO variable. Les isothermes d'adsorption de suspensions d'argile dilué ont montré une plus grande teneur en polymère de plus faible masse moléculaire (en µmol/m² dans chaque série. La quantité adsorbée augmente dans la proportion de NPE > PEO > PE. Les mesures de taux de rupture et contrainte de la rupture oscillatoire et de la rupture stabilisée des suspensions d'argile concentrée (3 à 6%/v facilitent l'interprétation des interactions de particule. Le seuil d'écoulement, la viscosité plastique et le module élastique ont montré un maximum pour une couverture superficielle de 50% environ par les polymères NPE, suivi d'une diminution provoquée par la stabilisation de la suspension. Dans le cas des polymères PE, ces paramètres ont diminué de manière continue au fur et à mesure du recouvrement de la particule d'argile. L'étalonnage du module élastique avec une teneur d'argile croissante permet de calculer l'exposant n à partir de la loi de puissance G' = kon qui donne une description qualitative du degré de dispersion des différents polymères. Les résultats préliminaires de l'effet de la température et de la pression sur les suspensions de bentonite et polymère sont également présentés.

Nous avons tout d’abord passé rapidement en revue les phénomènes El Niño/Oscillation du Sud et dipôle de l’Atlantique en fonction de leur impact au Brésil et surtout dans la partie septentrionale du Nordeste du Brésil. Les anomalies de précipitations sont surtout provoquées par les variations de la SST dans les océans Atlantique tropical et Pacifique équatorial. On montre la réponse de l’atmosphère tropicale pour les circulations méridionales (Hadley et zonales (Walker, qui s’affaiblissent anormalement les années sèches, alors que les déplacements verticaux s’accélèrent les années humides. Hors des latitudes tropicales, des phénomènes de blocage, associés à des trains d’ondes de Rossby dans le Pacifique changent la puissance et la trajectoire des jet-stream dans les deux hémisphères, modifiant également la trajectoire et l’intensité des systèmes de fronts froids et provoquent des pluies torrentielles et des inondations dans le Sud-est et le Sud du Brésil. Se ha realizado una breve revisión de los fenómenos El Niño Oscilación del Sur y el Dipolo Atlántico con relación a sus impactos en Brasil, especialmente en la parte noreste del Noreste de Brasil (NEB.

    The time evolution of coherent rotational wave packets associated to a diatomic molecule or to a deformed nucleus has been studied. Assuming a rigid body dynamics the J(J+1) law leads to a mechanism of cloning: the way function is divided into wave packets identical to the initial one at specific time. Applications are studied for a nuclear wave packed formed by Coulomb excitation. Exact boundary conditions at finite distance for the solution of the time-dependent Schroedinger equation are derived. A numerical scheme based on Crank-Nicholson method is proposed to illustrate its applicability in several examples. (authors) 3 refs.

  12. Overview of some theories in which the nurse-patient interaction is the heart of care Un sobrevuelo por algunas teorías donde la interacción enfermera-paciente es el núcleo del cuidado Uma revisão geral sobre algumas teorias onde a interação enfermeira-paciente é o núcleo do cuidado

    Full Text Available This paper reveals through three theories, the importance of interaction between nurse and patient as being the heart of nursing care. Nursing has been influenced by different perspectives: particular deterministic, interactive-integrating and unitary-transformative. In the same sense, care presents different conceptualizations. Peplau introduced the theory of interpersonal relationships as a therapeutic interpersonal process comprising three phases: orientation, work (sub-phases: identification and exploitation and termination. King's conceptual model comprises the personal, inter-personal and social systems; from there, he derived his goal achievement theory. He defines nursing care as an action, reaction and interaction process. Travelbee proposes the person – person relationship model established after four phases: original encounter, identity emergency, empathy and sympathy which end up in the rapport or establishment of the relationship. After the overview on these theories, it can be stated that nursing bases its professional practice on a nurse – patient relationship being the nurse the therapeutic instrument and the interactions take place to achieve a goal or transaction. They have in common the concept of communication as a reciprocal process that takes place in encounter or encounter disappointment situations through which thoughts, feelings and attitudes are communicated and subjectivities are shared, which shows us care as a humanitarian task that facilitates the growth of each in-dividual in a process that differs in each case in particular.Este escrito devela a través de tres teorías cómo la interacción enfermera-paciente es el núcleo central del cuidado en enfermería.

    The propagation of an alkaline wave through a clay rock has been investigated- The wave is generated by a cementitious matrix through the Callovo-Oxfordian argillite of the Meuse Haute-Marne Laboratory (-480 m depth). The argillite itself is composed of quartz, micas, calcite and an interstratified l/S. In order to characterise the interactions between the alkaline fluid and the argillaceous medium, dynamic column experiments have been carried out. The originality of the investigation methodology consists in exploiting the data generated from the breakthrough curves as well as from the characterisation of the solids extracted from the columns. Two types of processes having totally different reaction times have hence been thoroughly studied: - Fast surface adsorption and condensation reactions: On the one hand cation adsorption reactions by site ionisation have been characterised. They are responsible of the buffering effect of the clays. On the other hand an original reaction of calcium compound condensation in the interlayer space of the swelling clays has been revealed. These processes have been modelled and their simulations with the IMPACT calculation code showed that the models elaborated were very satisfying. - Strongly kinetically limited dissolution/precipitation reactions: The main primary phases dissolved are quartz and interstratified l/S. The precipitation of secondary phases are mainly C(A)SH and zeolites. After the injection of an alkaline fluid for 6 months at 60 deg C, the argillite is strongly amorphized but only 20 to 30% of the quartz and the interstratified I/S are dissolved. Therefore, dissolution kinetics of the primary phases and the solubility products of the main secondary phases have been determined. (author)

    de la construction (erection des batiments et installation du materiel) et s'est terminee au debut du fonctionnement en puissance (production nette de courant electrique appreciable). Les essais avaient pour but: a) de verifier les performances du materiel ainsi installe; b) de mesurer les valeurs initiales des coefficients d'etat critique et de reactivite; c) de determiner les parametres de physique dies reacteurs et les performances de l'installation a differents niveaux de puissance progressivement croissants. L 'experience acquise peut etre decrite sous six rubriques distinctes mais apparentees: 1. calendrier; 2. couts; 3. besoins en personnel; 4, methodes; 5. performances du materiel (y compris le mauvais fonctionnement); 6. performances reelles de la filiere par rapport aux previsions. Les effectifs moyens pour chaque installation, y compris les ouvriers, les operateurs, les cadres superieurs, le personnel technique d'appui et les stagiaires sont d 'environ 50 personnes pour l'ERR, 115 pour l'HNPF, et 60 pour le PNPF. Des listes detaillees d'essais a effectuer avant fonctionnement ont ete preparees pour chaque piece et partie constitutive importante. Autant que possible on a procede a tous les essais avant de charger le reacteur et de mettre en route l'ensemble de l'installation. Les demandes d'autorisations (correspondant aux demandes de permis pour les installations qui n'appartiennent pas a la CEA-EU) ont ete instruites pendant presque toute la periode des essais apres construction. Le temps necessaire pour les essais apres construction de chacune de ces centrales a ete nettement plus long que prevu. Les essais ont mis en evidence de nombreux defauts ou vices de construction des pieces, constates ou supposes, qui ont necessite des essais et des analyses supplementaires. Dans certains cas, il a fallu reparer ou modifier des pieces pour porter remede a des defauts de fabrication ou des erreurs techniques. Les principaux defauts releves ont ete les suivants

  16. Gelatinized wheat starch influences crystallization behaviour and structure of roll-in shortenings in laminated bakery products.

    Mattice, Kristin D; Marangoni, Alejandro G

    2018-03-15

    One hydrogenated and one non-hydrogenated shortening were baked with isolated components of a croissant matrix, including crystalline wheat starch, gelatinized wheat starch, gluten, and formed gluten network. The impact of the matrix components on fat crystallization was analyzed for polymorphism using powder X-ray diffraction, solid fat content by pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance and thermal behaviour by differential scanning calorimetry. When compared to results obtained from croissants prepared with the respective shortenings, samples containing gelatinized wheat starch displayed notably similar results: polymorphic conversion, from the β' to β form over storage, and visually broader peaks in the melting endotherms indicating a greater temperature was required to completely melt all of the fat. All other component mixtures behaved similar to the respective fats in bulk. The measured rate of crystallization was greater in samples containing gelatinized wheat starch, indicating that the gelatinized starch could act as a nucleation site to speed crystallization.

    Bakery products are highly consumed by children and adults and as cereal-derived foods are considered a fundamental part of a balanced diet, but they are usually high in sugar and saturated and trans fat and low in fibre. This study aimed to develop four different bakery products (cookies, croissants, Spanish muffins and Spanish sponge cake) with healthier properties, such as lower fat and sugar content, healthy fatty acid profile and higher fibre content. Margarine and sunflower oil were replaced with high oleic sunflower oil, and inulin was also added. After the modifications, a significant reduction of fat content and kilocalories in all cases, an increment of monounsaturated fat and a decrease in saturated fatty acids in three products were observed. The sensory analysis resulted similar results in both recipes for cookies and lower acceptability in sponge cake, croissants and muffins. Purchase intention only decreased in sponge cake.

(1) Number of passages through 15 different parts of the hospital staircases. (2) Number and ratio of normal-salt and reduced-salt soup purchased. (3) Number and ratio of butter croissants and lean croissants purchased. (4) Number and ratio of diet margarine and butter purchased. Elevator signs increased the mean 24-h number of stair passages per measurement site (baseline: 992 ± 479 on week days and 208 ± 116 on weekend days) by 11.2% (95% CI 8.7% to 13.7%). This effect was maintained at least 2 weeks after the point-of-decision prompts were removed. Point-of-purchase prompts promoting low-salt soup and lean croissants did not result in altered purchase behaviour. The ratio between the purchase of margarine and butter was changed sevenfold (pmaking healthy choices easier than unhealthy ones. Educational prompts at points-of-decision moderately increase stair climbing, but do not affect healthy food choices. Clinicaltrials.gov identifier number: NCT01574040.

  6. Twitter, Journalism and Affective Labour

    Eugenia Siapera

    2015-03-01

    project for unleashing the power involved in this aspect of journalism. La hausse des aspects en réseau du journalisme dans le contexte des médias sociaux tels que Twitter, et de l’importance accrue accordée à la construction et à l’entretien d’une communauté ainsi qu’à la réciprocité, souligne la nécessité de prendre en compte la partie affective du travail journalistique. Cette notion fait référence aux aspects du travail journalistique liés à la création de réseaux et communautés, à l’interaction avec les lecteurs et à la formation de liaisons entre les journalistes et ceux-ci. Nous soutenons qu’une analyse du travail affectif des journalistes sur Twitter est nécessaire pour comprendre le potentiel et les ambiguïtés de cette partie de leur travail. Basé sur un ensemble d’entretiens avec des journalistes utilisant Twitter, cet article a trouvé trois principaux répertoires de travail affectif : le répertoire des relations organiques, qui souligne l’importance croissante de l’authenticité comme moyen d’établir une certaine crédibilité sur Twitter ; le répertoire temporel ; et le répertoire de la responsabilité. L’importance du travail affectif du journalisme se trouve dans sa productivité biopolitique. Le développement d’une relation organique avec les followers, l’émergence de liens plus forts entre les groupes noyaux qui deviennent alors des communautés, l’extension des soins et de l’aide au réseau, sont autant de preuves de l’importance de cette productivité biopolitique et montrent la construction d’un rôle sociopolitique nouveau et potentiellement plus radical pour le journalisme. Cependant, ce potentiel est ambigu dans la mesure où ces éléments contiennent des tensions et des ambiguïtés non résolues. Il s’agit notamment des échanges de soi, et la marchandisation associée ; de la reformulation du temps, en particulier sa dimension diachronique, comme accumulation de capital social

    2013-01-01

    La communication ultra large bande (UWB) a attiré une énorme quantité de recherches ces dernières années, surtout après la présentation du masque spectral de US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Les impulsions ultra-courtes permettent de très hauts débits de faible puissance tout en éliminant les interférences avec les systèmes existants à bande étroite. La faible puissance, cependant, limite la portée de propagation des radios UWB à quelques mètres pour la transmission sans fil à l’in...

    Calorimetric methods may be used to measure gamma fluxes greater than 10{sup 6} r/h near the cores of swimming pool reactors. The theory, design, and properties of isothermal calorimeters are discussed, and experimental results obtained with two types are presented. Measurement of energy deposition in materials and the long term integration of energy depositions are other uses of these devices. Results of measurements on heat deposition in steel and water are given. Fluxes were also measured. (authors) [French] Une premiere partie traite de la theorie des calorimetres isothermes mis en oeuvre au C.K.N. Grenoble. La puissance deposee dans le calorimetre par les flux de rayonnement echauffe celui-ci. L'echauffement est mesure a l'aide d'un thermocouple. On montre que l'on a ainsi une mesure absolue de cette puissance. Une deuxieme partie traite de l'etude experimentale de: deux types d'appareils utilises: leur construction, les resultats experimentaux, leurs utilisations. Trois de celles-ci sont particulierement interessantes: - la mesure des hauts flux gamma, - la mesure du depot d'energie dans les materiaux, - l'integration pendant une longue duree des depots d'energie (un modele de calorimetre a fonctionne a ce jour 2 500 heures et a integre 9 x 10 puissance 10 rads gamma et 6 x 10 puissance 18 neutrons rapides). La troisieme partie est consacree a l'etude des qualites de l'appareil: robustesse, fidelite, precision, sensibilite, gamme de mesure. Enfin dans la derniere partie sont decrites deux applications de la methode calorimetrique a la mesure du depot d'energie dans un acier special et dans l'eau. (auteurs)

    Full Text Available Background. Aprepitant is a P/neurokinin-1 receptor antagonist approved for the prevention of CINV in moderate emetic risk chemotherapy. We explored its effectiveness in patients with leukemia receiving cytarabine-based chemotherapy. Methods. Patients were randomized to ondansetron (OND 8 mg IV 30 minutes before cytarabine followed by 24 mg IV continuous infusion daily until 6–12 hours after the last dose of chemotherapy alone or with aprepitant (APREP oral 125 mg 6–12 hrs before chemotherapy and 80 mg daily until 1 day after the last dose of chemotherapy. Results. Forty-nine patients were enrolled in each arm; 42 in OND and 41 in OND + APREP arm were evaluable for efficacy. The ORR with OND + APREP was 80% compared to 67% with OND alone (P=0.11. On days 6 and 7, higher proportion of patients treated with OND + APREP were free from nausea (74%, 74% versus 68%, 67%; P=0.27 and 0.18, resp.. Requirement of rescue medications on days 2 and 3 was fewer in OND + APREP arm 7% and 5% compared to 21% and 16% in the OND arm, respectively (P=0.06 and P=0.07. Conclusions. There was a trend for overall improvement in emesis with ondansetron plus aprepitant. The potential benefit of this approach with specific chemotherapy combinations remains to be determined.

    Visible and UV lasers are currently investigated for many applications as data storage, medicine, etc. Intracavity frequency doubling appears as a good solution. Thus, the non-linear family Ca{sub 4}REO(BO{sub 3}){sub 3} (RE = rare earth, RECOB) has shown a considerable interest to produce compact visible laser. In addition, it is possible to tune the compositions of RECOB by partial substitutions in order to achieve non-critical phase matching (NCPM). In the present work, various cationic substitutions have been studied in solid solutions as Gd{sub 1-x}Y{sub x}COB, Gd{sub 1-x}La{sub x}COB, Gd{sub 1-x}Sc{sub x}COB (for the first time), Re{sub 1-x}Bi{sub x}COB (REe = Gd or Y) and (Ca{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}){sub 4}GdO(BO{sub 3}){sub 3} in order to investigate their crystal growth and adjust the NCPM wavelength by composition. The wavelength range is related to neodymium doped laser materials emitting on the 4F3/2-4I9/2 transition, for example Nd:YAP (YAlO{sub 3}) at 930 nm, Nd:YAG (Y{sub 3}Al{sub 5}O{sub 12}) at 946 nm or Nd:ASL (Sr{sub 1-x}Nd{sub y}La{sub x-y}Mg{sub x}Al{sub 11-x}O{sub 19}) at 900 nm. We have also demonstrated that the compositions for NCPM can be determined from the refractive index of both lattices M{sub 1-x}M'{sub x}COB (M, M' RE) with x = 0 or 1, using the Clausius-Mosotti relation. Two new blue laser systems, constituted of a laser crystal and a non-linear crystal optimized for type-I NCPM second harmonic generation, were achieved: a 946 nm Nd:YAG laser with Gd{sub 0.87}Y{sub 0.13}COB and a 900 nm Nd:ASL laser with Gd{sub 0.56}Y{sub 0.44}COB. Moreover, we have performed for the first time a CW laser action at 900 nm with Nd:ASL. (author)

    à combustible et construit à des fins de démonstration, sert de base à l’étude de l’effet de la taille de la pile (kW et de la batterie (kW, kWh sur la consommation d’hydrogène du véhicule. Trois cycles de vitesse définissent les conditions spécifiques de conduite du véhicule : le NEDC pour les véhicules de faible puissance, le CSC et le cycle JE05. L’ECMS (Equivalent Consumption Minimization Strategy est utilisée pour déterminer les consignes pour la pile à combustible et la batterie. Cette stratégie de commande permet d’atteindre une consommation proche du minimum global, obtenu par la programmation dynamique (DP. Le problème de dimensionnement peut être résolu en utilisant la programmation dynamique et l’ECMS a l’avantage, par rapport à la programmation dynamique, de pouvoir être mise en oeuvre en temps réel. Pour le véhicule et matériels considérés, les trois cycles de conduite permettent d’obtenir les puissances nominales optimales pour la pile à combustible à savoir environ trois fois la puissance moyenne demandée par le conducteur. Cela montre que le dimensionnement de la pile à combustible pour la puissance moyenne ou maximale, n’est pas nécessairement optimale vis-à-vis de la sobriété en carburant. La batterie est dimensionnée pour fournir la différence entre la puissance nominale de la pile à combustible et le pic de puissance dans la demande totale en puissance électrique. Le dimensionnement de la batterie est dominée par ses capacités de tenue en puissance. Par conséquent, un taux plus haut entre kW et kWh cause une diminution du poids de la batterie qui à son tour conduit à une consommation d’hydrogène plus basse. La capacité de stockage d’énergie de la batterie ne devient un problème que pour les taux de C-ratio supérieurs à 30. Par rapport à un prolongateur d’autonomie (RE où la taille de la pile est comparable à la puissance moyenne et où la pile est exploitée sur un niveau

    Full Text Available Historicamente, as cidades constituíram elemento espacial vital tanto para o desenvolvimento do capitalismo mercantil como para o industrial via formação de mercados nacionais. É aí também que se conforma o capital financeiro, cuja lógica é a dominante no ambiente globalizado, no qual, cada vez mais, estreitam-se as relações entre os mercados, envolvendo aqueles de economias emergentes. Nestas, algumas cidades ganham protagonismo e importância estratégica, incorporando funções que ultrapassam as fronteiras dos países onde se inserem. Toma-se neste artigo três cidades desses países – Mumbai, São Paulo e Joanesburgo – e examina-se a composição e o comportamento dos principais índices das Bolsas de Valores nelas sediadas. Estas instituições, por sua dimensão multiescalar, permitem compreender a lógica, a direção e a intensidade da inserção dos investimentos do país na economia global. O estudo revelou não apenas o peso das commodities correlacionando os três índices como também uma distribuição regionalizada dos investimentos, referida a cada uma das Bolsas.Historiquement, les villes ont joué un rôle décisif dans le développement du capitalisme mercantile aussi bien que dans celui du capitalisme industriel, à travers la formation des marchés nationaux. L’émergence du capitalisme financier, dont la logique domine le monde globalisé, met ce rôle encore une fois en évidence. Dans ce contexte où les rapports entre les marchés nationaux se sont multipliés et ont incorporé les économies émergentes, certaines métropoles sont devenues des pôles de puissance et d’importance stratégique dont l’influence dépasse largement les frontières de leurs pays respectifs. Le présent article examine la composition et le comportement des principaux indices boursiers dans trois villes: Mumbai, São Paulo et Johannesburg.

  10. Etudes optiques de nouveaux materiaux laser: Des orthosilicates dopes a l'ytterbium: Le yttrium (lutetium,scandium) pentoxide de silicium

    Denoyer, Aurelie

    La decouverte et l'elaboration de nouveaux materiaux laser solides suscitent beaucoup d'interet parmi la communaute scientifique. En particulier les lasers dans la gamme de frequence du micron debouchent sur beaucoup d'applications, en telecommunication, en medecine, dans le domaine militaire, pour la, decoupe des metaux (lasers de puissance), en optique non lineaire (doublage de frequence, bistabilite optique). Le plus couramment utilise actuellement est le Nd:YAG dans cette famille de laser, mais des remplacants plus performants sont toujours recherches. Les lasers a base d'Yb3+ possedent beaucoup d'avantages compares aux lasers Nd3+ du fait de leur structure electronique simple et de leur deterioration moins rapide. Parmi les matrices cristallines pouvant accueillir l'ytterbium, les orthosilicates Yb:Y 2SiO5, Yb:Lu2SiO5 et Yb:Sc2SiO 5 se positionnent tres bien, du fait de leur bonne conductivite thermique et du fort eclatement de leur champ cristallin necessaire a l'elaboration de lasers quasi-3 niveaux. De plus l'etude fine et systematique des proprietes microscopiques de nouveaux materiaux s'avere toujours tres interessante du point de vue de la recherche fondamentale, c'est ainsi que de nouveaux modeles sont concus (par exemple pour le champ cristallin) ou que de nouvelles proprietes inhabituelles sont decouvertes, menant a de nouvelles applications. Ainsi d'autres materiaux dopes a l'ytterbium sont connus pour leurs proprietes de couplage electron-phonon, de couplage magnetique, d'emission cooperative ou encore de bistabilite optique, mais ces proprietes n'ont encore jamais ete mises en evidence dans Yb:Y 2SiO5, Yb:Lu2SiO5 et Yb:Sc2SiO 5. Ainsi, cette these a pour but l'etude des proprietes optiques et des interactions microscopiques dans Yb:Y2SiO 5, Yb:Lu2SiO5 et Yb:Sc2SiO5. Nous utilisons principalement les techniques d'absorption IR et de spectroscopie Raman pour determiner les excitations du champ cristallin et les modes de vibration dans le materiau

    Europeans consume large quantities of bakery products, although these are known as one of the food categories that potentially leads to postprandial symptoms (such as fullness and bloating). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of sourdough baked goods on gastric emptying and gastrointestinal fermentation and symptoms in healthy people. In a double-blind, randomized crossover study, 2 sourdough croissants (SCs) or 2 brewer's yeast croissants (BCs) were served as single meals to 17 healthy adults [9 women; age range: 18-40 y; body mass index range (in kg/m2): 18-24]. Gastric volume (GV) was evaluated by magnetic resonance to calculate gastric-emptying rate in the 3-h interval after croissant ingestion. A hydrogen breath test was performed to measure hydrogen production after SC and BC ingestion. Palatability and postprandial gastrointestinal symptoms (discomfort, nausea, fullness, and bloating) over a 4-h period after the meal were evaluated. The area under the curve (AUC) was used to evaluate the overall effects on all variables tested. The total GV AUC was reduced by 11% during the 3 h after the consumption of SCs compared with BCs (P = 0.02). Hydrogen production during the 4-h interval after ingestion of SCs was 30% lower than after BCs (P = 0.03). SCs were rated as being >2 times as palatable as BCs (P bakery products could promote better postprandial gastrointestinal function in healthy adults and be more acceptable than those prepared with brewer's yeast. This trial was registered at www.clinicaltrials.gov as NCT03207516.

    2002-06-01

    Full Text Available Créées par et pour le tourisme, certaines stations anciennes tendent à sortir du tourisme. La diversification de leurs fonctions liée à la mobilité croissante de la société affecte et perturbe parfois la fonction touristique. Un nouvel espace est produit qui résulte de la transformation des espaces autrefois appropriés par le tourisme, avec d'autres logiques, en filiation ou en rupture avec le tourisme. Le cas de la Baule est pris pour exemple de ces mutations.

Les premiers “utilisateurs” sont prévus au printemps 2006 avec couverture de l'IR jusqu'aux X durs pour des études variées notamment dans le domaine de la matière condensée. - La LIL (ligne d'intégration laser) du LMJ fonctionne avec 4 faisceaux (de 30 kJ à 351 nm) et un ensemble de diagnostics plasma est en cours de validation (énergie, imagerie X, spectrométrie X). Un souci d'ouverture collaborative (France et étranger) est affiché. - LASERIX (LIXAM, LOA) a pour but de doter les scientifiques français d'un laser émettant en “quasi-routine” de l'émission laser X à 6 tirs/mn basée sur différents schémas collisionnels et donc différentes longueurs d'ondes, et mettant en oeuvre un laser saphir-titane ultra bref de 40 J pour la génération plasma. - Le projet Arc en Ciel (CEA, LOA) se penche sur la possibilité de mise en oeuvre d'une source de “4^ogénération”. Ces sources se veulent à la fois brillantes, cohérentes, dans la gamme des 100 femtosecondes, ce qui conduit à tourner le dos aux anneaux de stockage pour se focaliser sur la combinaison accélérateur linéaire/onduleur, complétée par un laser saphir-titane (génération d'harmoniques UV/X dans des gaz). - Une avancée particulièrement intéressante a été récemment réalisée, notamment au LOA, par injection d'un laser X (plasma) par un faisceau X de bonne qualité (polarisation, divergence, temps, contraste...) issu de la génération d'harmoniques élevées par une chaîne saphir-titane femto. - On notera aussi les avancées réalisées dans le domaine des sources incohérentes de forte intensité dans le domaine des X par interaction optimisée de l'interaction laser de puissance-agrégats (GPS-Paris 6 et 7, CEA Saclay), ainsi que par techniques X-pinch à fils à foyer de 10 microns (LPTP-École Polytechnique). - La génération d'harmoniques d'ordres élevés à partir de chaînes laser amplifiées a continué à faire l

  2. Un Compresseur de Paquets d'Electrons Fortement Chargés au CERN

    1996-01-01

    Le banc de test du "Compact Linear Collider" (CLIC) au CERN, doit mettre en évidence la possibilité de transporter des faisceaux hautement chargés (20 nC) à travers des structures décélératrices à 30 GHz pour la création de puissance RF. Cette puissance RF servant à alimenter dans le schéma final les cavités de l'accélérateur principal. Afin d'optimiser cette création de puissance, un compresseur de paquets d'électrons a été installé dans la ligne de test. Ce compresseur permet de réduire la longueur des paquets d'électrons après création et accélération dans le canon. Les paquets compressés sont ensuite accélérés par une cavité à fort gradient (50 MV/m) et transportés jusqu'à une cavité à 30 GHz. Des mesures de longueurs de paquets comprimés ont montré que des longueurs de 0,6 mm (rms) étaient obtenues à l'entrée de la cavité à 30 GHz pour des charges de 10 nC. La compression de paquets de charges comprises entre 2 et 17 nC a été mesurée. Des mesures d'émittances...

    The first French plutonium-making reactors G1, G2 and G3 built at Marcoule research center are linked to a power plant. The G1 electrical output does not offset the energy needed for operating this reactor. On the contrary, reactors G2 and G3 will each generate a net power of 25 to 30 MW, which will go into the EDF grid. This power is relatively small, but the information obtained from operation is great and will be helpful for starting up the power reactor EDF1, EDF2 and EDF3. The paper describes how, previous to any starting-up operation, the tests performed, especially those concerned with the power plant and the pressure vessel, have helped to bring the commissioning date closer.

    During the running of a reactor which uses water as a neutron moderator, a bluish light is seen to appear inside the liquid. A detailed study of this radiation, undertaken on the Fontenay-aux-Roses pile, has shown that the spectrum is identical with that which characterises the light produced by the Cerenkov effect. The light intensity as a function of the pile power grows exponentially as a function of time when the pile diverges, with a lifetime equal to that of the rise in power. An examination of the various particles present in the pile has led to the conclusion that only electrons with an energy greater than 260 keV con produce the Cerenkov light. The light source thus produced is about 2.10{sup 6} photons/cm{sup 2} of water, when the pile power equals 1 watt. (author) [French] Lors du fonctionnement d'un reacteur utilisant l'eau comme moderateur de neutrons, on constate l'apparition d'une lumiere bleutee au sein du liquide.

L'intensite lumineuse en fonction de Ia puissance de la pile, lors d'une divergence croit exponentiellement en fonction du temps avec une periode egale a celle de la montee en puissance. L'examen des diverses particules presentes dans la pile a permis de conclure que seuls les electrons ayant une energie superieure a 260 keV peuvent produire la lumiere Cerenkov. La source lumineuse ainsi constituee est d'environ 2.10{sup 6} photons/cm{sup 2} d'eau, lorsque la puissance de la pile est egale a 1 watt. (auteur)

    The instrument described here allows the direct and almost immediate measurement, with a precision of the order of 1 per cent, of the time taken by a reactor to double its power. The method of measurement consists of noting the instants when the power of the reactor passes the levels P{sub 1} and P{sub 2} such that P{sub 2} = 2 P{sub 1}, and of measuring the time lapse between these two instants. The instrument picks out, in the course of one rise in power, several levels, P{sub 1}, P{sub 2}, P{sub 3}... etc, chosen in such a manner as to give several successive measurements of the doubling time. It is also capable of making these same measurements when the reactor is working below the critical level. (author) [French] L'appareil decrit ici permet la mesure directe et quasi immediate du temps de doublement de la puissance d'un reacteur avec une precision de l'ordre de 1 pour cent.

    We studied the variations of power and reactivity of a reactor when we raise in a continuous way the starting plates. During the subcritical regime (negative reactivity), the power is determined by reactivity and by the intensity of the sources of photo neutrons, produced during the previous work of the reactor. When, during the rise of the plates, the reactor, pass by the critical regime (zero reactivity), one notes that the reached power is independent of the initial reactivity. During the sur-critical regime (positive reactivity), the elevation of temperature of the uranium bars slows down the growth of reactivity due to the movements of the plates. The power stretches then toward a value that depends only on the regime of cooling of the reactor and the excess of the available reactivity. This survey permits to choose such a rise speed, that reactivity remains constantly lower to a value beyond which the piloting of the reactor becomes difficult. This result is not more valid, if the intensity of the sources is insufficient, what takes place during the first divergences and after a stop of long length. (author) [French] On etudie les variations de puissance et de reactivite d'un reacteur quand on leve d'une facon continue les plaques de demarrage. Pendant le regime subcritique (reactivite negative), la puissance est determinee par la reactivite et par l'intensite des sources de photoneutrons, produites pendant la marche anterieure du reacteur. Quand, au cours de la montee des plaques, le reacteur passe par le regime critique (reactivite nulle), on constate que la puissance atteinte est independante de la reactivite initiale. Pendant le regime surcritique (reactivite positive), l'elevation de temperature des barres d'uranium ralentit l'accroissement de reactivite due aux mouvements des plaques. La puissance tend alors vers une valeur qui ne depend plus que du regime de refroidissement du reacteur et de l'exces de la reactivite disponible. Cette etude permet de

    Ce travail consiste à modéliser les différentes composantes d’une centrale solaire de moyenne puissance. Cette centrale ce compose : d’un panneau solaire, d’un régulateur actif de tension, d’un système de stockage avec batterie et d’un onduleur a commande de modulation de largeur d’impulsion (MLI). Nous avons constaté que les performances d’un générateur photovoltaïque sont fortement influencées par les conditions climatiques, particulièrement l’irradiation solaire...
