[1] During transport, atmospheric aerosol particles experience nonlinear size-dependent deposition processes which affect their size distribution. This implies that the aerosol particle size distribution (PSD) should be well represented in three-dimensional transport models that simulate their transport and their radiative or biogeochemical impacts. In(More)
[1] Evaluating the impacts of atmospheric dust on marine ecosystems and climate requires the use of three-dimensional transport models including a size-resolved bins scheme to describe the evolution of the particle size distribution. Recently, Forêt et al. (2006) proposed an alternative size bins scheme to better account for the physical size-dependent(More)
This paper describes the pre-operational analysis and forecasting system developed during MACC (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate) and continued in the MACC-II (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate: Interim Implementation) European projects to provide air quality services for the European continent. This system is based on seven(More)
The study of railway tracks under high speed trains is one of the most important researches in the domain of transport. A reduced scale experiment with three sleepers is presented to study the dynamic behavior and the settlement of ballasted tracks. A large number of trains passing at high speeds are simulated by signals, applied with the help of hydraulic(More)
Despite the international agreement to reduce global warming to below 2 °C, the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions submitted for the COP21 would lead to a global temperature rise of about 3 °C. The relative consequences of such a one-degree additional warming have not yet been investigated for regional air quality. Here we found that a + 3 °C(More)
A three-dimensional phenomenological model is developed to describe the fatigue behaviour of concrete. The approach is based on the framework of continuum damage mechanics where the fatigue model is derived by means of Marigo’s formulation where the yield concept is replaced by a loadingunloading irreversibility concept allowing to account for damage(More)
In the present paper, the bending behavior of Cross Laminated Timber panels is investigated by means of the linear elastic exact solution from Pagano (1970, 1969). The resulting stresses are the input for a wood failure criterion, which can point out the first-crack load and the respective dominant failure mode. Heterogeneous layers are modeled as(More)
