ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography
In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).
This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.

Rankine cycle based waste heat recovery system applied to heavy duty vehicles: topological optimization and model based control - Grelet, Vincent
standards force the original engine manufacturers to search for innovative solutions in order
to reduce oil consumption. As an important part of the energy contained in the primary
carrier (the fuel) is lost to the ambient through heat, it seems convenient to recover a part
of this thermal energy and to turn it into fuel consumption reduction. Thermodynamic bottoming
cycle such as the Rankine cycle could be used to meet this objective. Its popular
use throughout the world for electricity generation makes it a natural candidate for on-board
implementation in vehicles. However, a certain number of hurdles are still present before the
system can be efficiently applied...
