  • Détection des impacts toxiques dans l'environnement : du terrain à la règlementation présente les développements méthodologiques et les enjeux règlementaires de l'écotoxicologie appliquée aux domaines de la surveillance environnementale, du diagnostic et de l'évaluation des risques pour les écosystèmes. Des cas particuliers d'application permettent de montrer l'intérêt et les limites de ces mesures biologiques, en complément des analyses physicochimiques.

    Cet ouvrage développe plus particulièrement les avancées scientifiques et techniques pour le développement et l'utilisation d'espèces modèles (bio-indicateurs) et d'indicateurs écotoxicologiques (biomarqueurs et bio-essais) pour chacun des milieux aquatique, aérien et terrestre. L'objectif est d'évaluer l'exposition chimique réelle des organismes et les effets biologiques dans différents habitats.

    L'expérience acquise à travers l'utilisation de l'écotoxicologie « de terrain » pour la caractérisation de l'innocuité des milieux (eau, air, sol) démontre que c'est désormais un outil de diagnostic et d'aide à la décision, dépassant le stade de la recherche, pleinement utilisable par la règlementation.

  • La série Fiabilité des systèmes multiphysiques s'intéresse aux avancées de la recherche et de l'industrie appliquées aux domaines de l'optimisation, de la fiabilité et de la prise en compte des incertitudes des systèmes. Ce couplage est à la base de la compétitivité des entreprises dans les secteurs de l'automobile, de l'aéronautique, du génie civil ou de la défense.

    Avec les évolutions technologiques, informatiques et organisationnelles, les équipements industriels deviennent plus complexes et automatisés. Cette complexité est à l'origine de nombreux incidents, défaillances ou dégâts sur les biens, l'environnement et les personnes et nécessite la mise en place d'une stratégie de maintenance efficiente, notamment au niveau du pronostic.

    Le processus de traçabilité et de capitalisation des données est un élément clé dans la perspective de l'évolution de la maintenance vers des stratégies prédictives. Ainsi, on dispose d'informations pertinentes et de connaissances appropriées permettant de prendre des décisions éclairées préalables à la mise en place d'une politique stratégique de maintenance prédictive.

    Cet ouvrage traite des stratégies de maintenance prédictive d'équipements industriels. Il fait suite au premier volume dédié aux premiers modules du cycle PHM et expose les modules relatifs à l'aide à la décision, la traçabilité de l'information et la capitalisation des connaissances.

  • Les triangulations puis les maillages sont au coeur de nombreux problèmes relatifs à des disciplines scientifiques variées, ici, les simulations numériques.

    Dans le volume 1, on a posé les bases théoriques relatives aux triangulations, aux fonctions de forme des éléments finis et à leurs interprétations en tant que carreaux géométriques. Ceci a rendu possible la construction d'outils permettant la modélisation géométrique d'objets quelconques.

    Dans le volume 2, ces éléments sont utilisés pour aborder les problèmes de maillage dans leurs différentes déclinaisons. On fait le lien entre contrôle d'erreur a posteriori et métrique. Les méthodes de maillage sont alors revisitées au travers de ces métriques qui montrent leurs capacités à traiter les problèmes de construction et d'adaptation de maillage, y compris dans le cas de maillage d'ordre élevé et de grande taille amenant à regarder les questions de parallélisation. Des exemples de nature industrielle montrent la pertinence des approches proposées.

  • Le réseau devient embarqué dans notre vie quotidienne grâce à des composants de plus en plus petits, peu coûteux, puissants, rapides et de plus en plus connectés entre eux.

  • Le biodisponible, notion naturelle et pratique, différencie ce qui est utile dans les aliments et ce qui est dangereux dans les contaminants.

    Cet ouvrage examine ce que retiennent les organismes des environnements, ou plus spécifiquement des exposomes auxquels ils sont soumis tout au long de leur vie. L'intérêt est de découvrir si l'analyse de leur contamination interne nous renseigne de façon fiable sur la biodisponibilité des contaminants. Il explore également les avantages et limites des alternatives techniques censées reproduire artificiellement la biodisponibilité.

    Biodisponibles offre un état des connaissances au carrefour de plusieurs disciplines qui ouvre sans cesse de nouveaux fronts de sciences. Ainsi, il expose la complexité de même que l'importance du rôle de la nature et de nos environnements dans les interactions entre organismes et contaminants.

  • Les développements actuels dans le domaine des énergies renouvelables, ainsi que la tendance à l'autoproduction et à l'autoconsommation d'énergie, ont suscité un intérêt accru pour les moyens de stockage de l'énergie électrique, devenus un élément clé du développement durable.

    En mettant particulièrement l'accent sur leur gestion et leur valorisation, cet ouvrage analyse le potentiel offert par le stockage de l'électricité dans le cadre des bâtiments, îlots de bâtiments et quartiers intégrés dans un large réseau électrique intelligent (ou smart grid) ou formant un microréseau électrique intelligent (ou micro grid). Il montre les nombreux services que le stockage peut apporter et examine les facteurs socio-économiques importants liés à l'émergence de bâtiments intelligents et de réseaux intelligents. Enfin, il présente les outils méthodologiques nécessaires à la mise en place d'un système de gestion de l'énergie de ces technologies de stockage, illustrés par des exemples concrets et pédagogiques.

  • Les humanités numériques constituent un champ mouvant incluant recherche, enseignement, études et pratiques. L'objectif est ici de comprendre les implications et les opportunités du numérique comme un média, un objet d'étude, voire un véritable écosystème.

    Les sciences humaines et sociales (SHS) semblent aujourd'hui bouleversées, tant au plan épistémologique que méthodologique, par les outils numériques qui permettent d'analyser des données à la fois hétérogènes et volumineuses. Quant aux sciences de l'information et de la communication (SIC), elles analysent, grâce à leur réflexion critique sur la genèse du numérique, l'impact de ce dernier sur le processus de production des données et de leur interprétation. Les questions récurrentes posées par les SHS demeurent centrales pour saisir la complexité infocommunicationnelle et dépasser une approche strictement computationnelle.

    Cet ouvrage regroupe l'ensemble des communications de la conférence internationale H2PTM'19 : de l'hypertexte aux humanités numériques.

  • Les événements hydrométéorologiques extrêmes se multiplient sous l'effet des dérèglements climatiques. Il est aujourd'hui nécessaire de mieux anticiper les interactions problématiques entre dynamiques physiques et sociales afin d'en minorer leurs conséquences.

    Cet ouvrage collectif, fruit du travail d'une équipe interdisciplinaire, vise à explorer les dynamiques sociales et hydrologiques pour comprendre les mécanismes qui mènent soit à des catastrophes, soit à des événements d'impacts limités, et ainsi de mieux s'y préparer.

    Centré sur les crues rapides qui affectent particulièrement le bassin méditerranéen, cet ouvrage contribue à mieux caractériser les nombreuses dimensions de ces événements, de leur prévision à leurs conséquences en termes d'exposition humaine, de développement territorial et de mobilité sociale.

    Alors que le premier volume explore la question des échelles d'analyse sociohydrologique de l'exposition des mobilités sociales aux crues rapides, ce volume traite de la question des rythmes d'exposition et d'adaptation à de tels phénomènes.

  • Anglais Zonotopes

    Collectif

    This title focuses on two significant problems in the field of automatic control, in particular state estimation and robust Model Predictive Control under input and state constraints, bounded disturbances and measurement noises. The authors build upon previous results concerning zonotopic set-membership state estimation and output feedback tube-based Model Predictive Control. Various existing zonotopic set-membership estimation methods are investigated and their advantages and drawbacks are discussed, making this book suitable both for researchers working in automatic control and industrial partners interested in applying the proposed techniques to real systems.
    The authors proceed to focus on a new method based on the minimization of the P-radius of a zonotope, in order to obtain a good trade-off between the complexity and the accuracy of the estimation. They propose a P-radius based set-membership estimation method to compute a zonotope containing the real states of a system, which are consistent with the disturbances and measurement noise. The problem of output feedback control using a zonotopic set-membership estimation is also explored. Among the approaches from existing literature on the subject, the implementation of robust predictive techniques based on tubes of trajectories is developed.

  • Due to the consequences of globa l warming and significant greenhouse gas emissions, several ideas have been studied to reduce these emissions or to suggest solut ions for pollutant remov al. The most promising ideas are reduced consumption, waste recovery and waste treatment by biological systems. In this latter category, studies have demonstrated that the use of microalgae is a very promising solution for the biofixation of carbon dioxide. In fact, these micro-organisms are able to offset high levels of CO2 thanks to photosynthesis. Microalgae are also used in various fields (food industry, fertilizers, biofuel, etc.). To obtain a n optimal C O2 sequestration us ing micr oal gae, their cul tivatio n has to be c arried ou t in a f avorable e nvironment, corresponding to optimal operating conditions (temperature, nutrients, pH, light, etc.). Therefore, microalgae are grown in an enclosure, i.e. photobioreactors, which notably operate in continuous mode. This type of closed reactor notably enables us to reduce culture contamination, to improve CO2 transfer and to better control the cultivation system. This last point involves the regulation of concentrations (biomass, substrate or by-product) in addition to conventional regulations (pH, temperature).
    To do this, we have to establish a model of the system and to identify its parameters; to put in place estimators in order to rebuild variables that are not measured online (software sensor); and finally to implement a control law, in order to maintain the system in optimal conditions despite modeling errors and environmental disturbances that can have an influence on the system (pH variations, temperature, light, biofilm appearance, etc.).

  • This book explores how the technical upheavals of the 21st century have changed the structures and architecture of the creation, sharing and regulation of knowledge. From the new economic and technical models of production and dissemination of knowledge, the book deals with all new forms of valorisation. It also explains how the legislative deficit in the world and in Europe, around digital is being filled by new initiatives, such as the law for a Digital Republic, in France. It is therefore a book that provides a valuable follow-up to the book "The New Challenges of Knowledge", of which it constitutes the continuation and operational deepening.

  • This book deals with the management and valuation of energy storage in electric power grids, highlighting the interest of storage systems in grid applications and developing management methodologies based on artificial intelligence tools. The authors highlight the importance of storing electrical energy, in the context of sustainable development, in "smart cities" and "smart transportation", and discuss multiple services that storing electrical energy can bring. Methodological tools are provided to build an energy management system storage following a generic approach. These tools are based on causal formalisms, artificial intelligence and explicit optimization techniques and are presented throughout the book in connection with concrete case studies.

  • This book presents new guidelines for the control of cracking in massive reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Understanding this behavior during construction allows engineers to ensure properties such as durability, reliability, and water- and air-tightness throughout a structure's lifetime. Based on the findings of the French national CEOS.fr project, the authors extend existing engineering standards and codes to advance the measurement and prediction of cracking patterns. Various behaviors of concrete under load are explored within the chapters of the book.  These include cracking of ties, beams and in walls, and the simulation and evaluation of cracking, shrinkage and creep. The authors propose new engineering rules for crack width and space assessment of cracking patterns, and provide recommendations for measurement devices and protocols. Intended as a reference for design and civil engineers working on construction projects, as well as to aid further work in the research community, applied examples are provided at the end of each chapter in the form of expanded measurement methods, calculations and commentary on models.

  • This book presents a new fracturing technique that should be considered as a potential alternative, or a companion technique, to hydraulic fracturing of tight gas reservoirs and low permeability rock masses. As opposed to hydraulic fracturing which generates a few numbers of large cracks, electro-hydraulic fracturing induces diffuse micro-cracking and fragmentation of rocks. Laboratory tests demonstrate that increases of permeability by two orders of magnitude can be reached, without major cracking in tested specimens. This book discusses the principles of this new technique, reports experiments which have been developed is order to prove the concept and finally describes the numerical model from which the potentialities of this technique in representative reservoir conditions can be assessed.

  • This book deals with air-ground aeronautical communications. The main goal is to give the reader a survey of the currently deployed, emerging and future communications systems dedicated to digital data communications between the aircraft and the ground, namely the data link. Those communication systems show specific properties relatively to those commonly used for terrestrial communications. In this book, the system architectures are more specifically considered from the access to the application layers as radio and physical functionalities have already been addressed in detail in others books. The first part is an introduction to aeronautical communications, their specific concepts, properties, requirements and terminology. The second part presents the currently used systems for air ground communications in continental and oceanic area. The third part enlightens the reader on the emerging and future communication systems and some leading research projects focused on this scope. Finally, before the conclusion, the fourth part gives several main challenges and research directions currently under investigation.

  • This book addresses the multiple technical aspects of the distribution of synchronization in new generation telecommunication networks, focusing in particular on synchronous Ethernet and IEEE1588 technologies. Many packet network engineers struggle with understanding the challenges that precise synchronization distribution can impose on networks. The usual "why", "when" and particularly "how" can cause problems for many engineers. In parallel to this, some other markets have identical synchronization requirements, but with their own design requirements, generating further questions. This book attempts to respond to the different questions by providing background technical information. Invaluable information on state of-the-art packet network synchronization and timing architectures is provided, as well as an unbiased view on the synchronization technologies that have been internationally standardized over recent years, with the aim of providing the average reader (who is not skilled in the art) with a better understanding of this topic. The book focuses specifically on synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588 PTP-based technologies, both key developments in the world of synchronization over the last 10 years. The authors address the needs of engineers and technical managers who are struggling with the subject of synchronization and provide an engineering reference for those that need to consider synchronization in NGN. The market applications that are driving the development of packet network synchronization and timing architectures are also discussed. This book provides a wide audience with everything they need to know when researching, implementing, buying and deploying packet synchronization architectures in telecommunication networks.

  • Energy and environmental issues have caused a marked increase in electricity production from renewable energy sources since the beginning of the 21st Century. The concept of sustainable development and concern for future generations challenge us every day to produce new technologies for energy production, and new patterns of use for these energies. Their rapid emergence can make the understanding and therefore the perception of these new technologies difficult. This book aims to contribute to a better understanding of the new electricity generation technologies by addressing a diverse audience. It presents the issues, sources and means of conversion into electricity using a general approach and develops scientific concepts to understand their main technical characteristics.
    Systems of electricity generation from renewable energy resources of small to medium powers are presented. The basic electrical concepts necessary for understanding the operating characteristics of these energy converters are introduced, and the constraints and problems of integration in the electrical networks of those means of production are discussed. Several exercises are provided to the reader for evaluation purposes. Contents 1. Decentralized Electricity Production from Renewable Energy, Benoît Robyns.

Through the principles of various proposed algorithms (with additional references) this book allows the reader to explore various methods of implementation such as metaheuristics, local search and populationbased methods. It examines multi-objective and stochastic optimization, as well as methods and tools for computer-aided decision-making and simulation for decision-making.

  • The main properties that make carbon nanotubes (CNTs) a promising technology for many future applications are: extremely high strength, low mass density, linear elastic behavior, almost perfect geometrical structure, and nanometer scale structure. Also, CNTs can conduct electricity better than copper and transmit heat better than diamonds. Therefore, they are bound to find a wide, and possibly revolutionary use in all fields of engineering.
    The interest in CNTs and their potential use in a wide range of commercial applications; such as nanoelectronics, quantum wire interconnects, field emission devices, composites, chemical sensors, biosensors, detectors, etc.; have rapidly increased in the last two decades. However, the performance of any CNT-based nanostructure is dependent on the mechanical properties of constituent CNTs. Therefore, it is crucial to know the mechanical behavior of individual CNTs such as their vibration frequencies, buckling loads, and deformations under different loadings.
    This title is dedicated to the vibration, buckling and impact behavior of CNTs, along with theory for carbon nanosensors, like the Bubnov-Galerkin and the Petrov-Galerkin methods, the Bresse-Timoshenko and the Donnell shell theory.

  • Enterprises and organizations of any kind embedded in today's economic environment are deeply dependent on their ability to take part in collaborations. Consequently, it is strongly required for them to get actively involved for their own benefit in emerging, potentially opportunistic collaborative enterprise networks. The concept of "interoperability" has been defined by INTEROP-VLab as "The ability of an enterprise system or application to interact with others at a low cost in a flexible approach". Consequently, interoperability of organizations appears as a major issue to succeed in building on the fly emerging enterprise networks. The International Conference on Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications (I-ESA 2014) was held under the motto "interoperability for agility, resilience and plasticity of collaborations" on March 26-28, 2014 and organized by the Ecole des Mines d'Albi-Carmaux, France on behalf of the European Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability (INTEROP-VLab). On March 24-25, co-located with the conference eight workshops and one doctoral symposium were held in four tracks complementing the program of the I-ESA'14 conference. The workshops and the doctoral symposium address areas of greatest current activity focusing on active discussions among the leading researchers in the area of Enterprise Interoperability. This part of the conference helps the community to operate effectively, building co-operative and supportive international links as well as providing new knowledge of on-going research to practitioners. The workshops and doctoral symposium aimed at exploiting new issues, challenges and solutions for Enterprise Interoperability (EI) and associated domains of innovation such as Smart Industry, Internet-Of-Things, Factories of the Future, EI Applications and Standardisation. These proceedings include the short papers from the I-ESA'14 workshops and the doctoral symposium. The book is split up into 9 sections, one for each workshop and one for the doctoral symposium. All sections were organized following four tracks: (1) EI and Future Internet / Factory of the Future; (2) EI Application Domains and IT; (3) EI Standards; (4) EI Doctoral Symposium. For each section, a workshop report is provided summarizing the content and the issues discussed during the sessions. The goal of the first track was to offer a discussion opportunity on interoperability issues regarding the use of Internet of Things on manufacturing environment (Workshops 1 and 3) on one hand, and regarding the potential of innovation derived from the use of digital methods, architectures and services such as Smart Networks (Workshops 2 and 4) on the other hand.   The second track focused on particular application domains that are looking for innovative solutions to support their strong collaborative needs. Thus, the track developed one workshop on the use of EI solution for Future City-Logistics (Workshop 5) and one on the use of EI solutions for Crisis / Disaster Management (Workshop 6).  The third track studied the recent developments in EI standardization. Two workshops were dedicated to this issue. The first one has proposed to focus on the management of standardization (Workshop 8) and the second one has chosen to work on the new knowledge on standardization developments in the manufacturing service domain (Workshop 9). The last track, the doctoral symposium presented research results from selected dissertations. The session discussed EI knowledge issues, notably in terms of gathering through social networks or Internet of Things and of exploitation through innovative decision support systems.
