Un studiu privind consolidarea cladirilor prin utilizarea amortizoarelor vascoase
A study on the strengthening of buildings by utilizing viscous dampers
Himan Mohammad Eisa
One of the methods that have been considered in recent years for the reinforcement of structures is the use of energy-absorbing systems. A variety of energy-absorbing systems have been developed and introduced, including liquid, viscous dampers. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of viscous dampers in absorbing forces caused by earthquakes and seismic improvement of structures, as well as the feasibility of increasing the floors of an existing structure by using these dampers. For this purpose, three different models with fixed plans and three different numbers of floors as five, nine, and thirteen have selected, and the possibility of increasing one floor to them by using viscous dampers has investigated. The results indicated that by adding a floor to the existing buildings, the stress ratio in some columns and also the relative displacement exceeds the allowable limit; however, viscous dampers can significantly decrease the stresses and displacements and can be used to expand the number of floors of an existing building.

Estimation of soil losses using RUSLE model and GIS tools: Case study of the Mellah catchment, Northeast of Algeria
Bouzeria Housseyn, Ghenim Abderrahmane Nekkache, Kanchoul Kamel, BouguerraHamza, TachiSalah Eddine,
Land and water are two most vital natural resources of the world and hence these resources must be conserved carefully to protect environment and maintain ecological balance. Estimation of soil erosion is one of the prerequisites for conservation and management of water resources and watersheds. The present study was carried out to predict soil erosion in the Mellah catchment, northeastern Algeria. Due to the importance of the water resources of this watershed and the lack of sedimentation data in this valley, a comprehensive methodology integrates Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) model, remote sensing and GIS techniques to determine the catchment soil erosion vulnerability. The elaborations of RUSLE factors in this study were based on multi-source data for the improvement of soil erosion estimation. The results indicated that the average soil loss is 10.21 t. ha-1.yr-1, with a total annual soil loss in the basin area of 5648.58 t. Around 90% of area was under very low erosion risk, and5% of area was considered as moderate erosion risk while 3% of area was considered as high to very high erosion risk. The climate change and rainfall fluctuations witnessed influenced the soil loss in this region. Thus, the high erosivity registered has consequent in the detachment of particles due to the soil texture types in this region. The conjunction of high erosivity, soil texture and high steep slopes in this region resulted in high potential soil erosion which could lead to the deterioration of water resources if not a mitigation measures and an immediate intervention are taken in the Mellah catchment.

Phreatic aquifer water upwelling: causes, consequences and remedies
Alia Basma ABBA, Asma ABBAS, Oum Elkheir BACHI, Sofiane SAGGAÏ
Ouargla has suffered a lot from water upwelling that has affected negatively human and environment. The present paper consists in presenting the quality of phreatic aquifer water, exposing the causes of water upwelling, consequences of the rise of water level over the surface ground and impacts of the mega project of fight against the water upwelling that has been realized between the end of 2006 and 2009.
Obtained results from the comparison between stats of phreatic aquifer before and after works have shown that there were a positive impacts in the Ouargla city center: downwelling of phreatic aquifer water, reduction in salt concentration and elimination of nitrate nitrogen.

Sistemele fotovoltaice au atras atentia in Romania in ultimii ani datorita beneficiilor multiple, precum implementarea intr-un timp scurt, independenta totală a energiei, protectia mediului si utilizarea unei surse de energie inepuizabile. Soarele este acea sursa de energie inepuizabila si se estimeaza ca radiatia solara va exista inca 4-5 miliarde de ani. Pentru implementarea unui sistem fotovoltaic, trebuie sa se ia in considerare conditiile metrorologice din zona in care se va implementa sistemul insa pentru a fi eficiente, panourile fotovoltaice trebuie instalate corespunzator. Lucrarea prezinta studiul realizat pentru a analiza impactul conditiilor meteorologice, precum radiatia solara directa, temperatura medie, viteza vantului si durata de stralucire a soarelui, asupra cantitatii de energie electrica generata de catre sistemul fotovoltaic.

Photovoltaic systems caught attention in Romania in recent years due to the multiple benefits, such as implementation in a short time, total energy independence, protection of the environment and use of an inexhaustible energy source. The sun is that inexhaustible source of energy, and it is estimated that solar radiation will exist for another 4-5 billion years. For the implementation of a photovoltaic system, the metrological conditions in the area where the system will be implemented must be taken into account, but in order to be efficient, the photovoltaic panels must be installed properly. The paper presents the study conducted to analyze the impact of weather conditions, such as direct solar radiation, average temperature, wind speed and duration of sunlight, on the amount of electricity generated by the photovoltaic system.
