The kinetics of the photoreduction of four benzophenone derivatives by isopropyl alcohol was examined in acetonitrile, namely, tetra-meta-trifluoromethyl-, di-para-trifluoromethyl-, di-para-methoxy benzophenone, and, for comparison, the unsubstituted molecule itself. The basic spectroscopic (absorption and phosphorescence spectra) and photophysical (quantum(More)
In a context of global change, the inland navigation transport has gained interest with economic and 1 environmental benefits. The development of this means of conveyance requires the improvement of its 2 management rules to deal with the increase of navigation (schedules and frequency) and the potential 3 impact of global change. To achieve this aim, it is(More)
Navigation canals are used for transport purposes. In order to allow safe navigation the water level should be kept in a certain range around the Normal Navigation Level (NNL). The water level is disturbed by known and unknown inputs, like tributaries, municipal water flows, rain, etc. Some of these inputs can be used to control the water level. If the(More)
In recent years, inland navigation networks benefit from the innovation of the instrumentation and SCADA systems. These data acquisition and control systems lead to a reactive asset-management of inland navigation networks. However, sensors and actuators are subject to faults due to the strong effects of the environment, aging, etc. In this paper, a sensor(More)
Predictive control is one of the most commonly used control methods in a variety of application areas, including hydraulic processes such as water distribution canals for irrigation. This article presents the design and application of predictive control for the water discharge entering into an irrigation canal located in Spain. First, a discrete time linear(More)
This paper reports the initial steps in the development of WaterLab, an ambitious experimental facility for the testing of new cyber-physical technologies in drinking water distribution networks (DWDN). WaterLab's initial focus is on wireless control networks and on data-based, distributed anomaly detection over wireless sensor networks. The former can be(More)
Low-modulus biomedical beta titanium alloys often suffer from low strength which limits their use as load-bearing orthopaedic implants. In this study, twelve different Ti-Nb-Zr-Ta based alloys alloyed with Fe, Si and O additions were prepared by arc melting and hot forging. The lowest elastic modulus (65GPa) was achieved in the benchmark TNTZ alloy(More)
