The design problem consists in maximizing the pull-in voltage using topology optimization method, which is formulated as an optimal material distribution. In addition to the classical volume constraint, different structural constraints could be taken into consideration. Sensitivity analysis is one of the key issues of the optimization process and is performed with the formulation of eigenvalue topology optimization problems. Here the paper investigates topology optimization of strongly coupled electromechanical systems. To avoid important modifications of the electric field by the optimization process, this first study considers a non design electrode and use topology optimization to design an optimal suspension structure. Solution procedure of the optimization problem is based on CONLIN optimizer using a sequential convex programming. This method that has proved its efficiency in many structural problems (sizing, shape) is here tailored to strongly coupled multiphysics design problems under consideration. The choice of appropriate explicit convex approximations schemes for multiphysic problems is investigated. The proposed method is illustrated and validated on microbeam optimization applications.

The presence of limit cycle oscillations within the flight envelopes of existing aircraft is well documented. Future air vehicle designs are also likely to encounter limit cycle oscillations under certain loading conditions. These steady-state constant amplitude oscillations are detrimental to mission effectiveness and lead to increased fatigue of aircraft structures. Previous efforts to suppress limit cycle oscillations have focused primarily on active control methods. These efforts have been effective but require significant measurement and control resources. In this study the investigators test a passive method for suppressing limit cycle behavior. A nonlinear energy sink, based on the principle of nonlinear energy pumping, is shown to be effective for increasing the stability threshold of a nonlinear two degree of freedom aeroelastic system.

Cet article porte sur l’efficacité politique d’une série photographique qui problématise des questions socioculturelles contemporaines telles l’immigration, l’exploitation et l’éthique du travail. L’image photographique devient une ressource dans les mains des acteurs sociaux et fait fonction de diagnostic des tensions du contemporain. La photographie permet de «reconnaître à travers» (c’est-à-dire « diagnostiquer ») et de formuler des jugements. Le potentiel sémantique du diagnostic engendré par cette série et la force illocutoire des jugements qui y sont inscrits fonctionnent comme une sorte d’« argumentation par images ». L’analyse de cette série photographique, réalisée par le photographe et théoricien Allan Sekula, nous a amené à nous interroger sur la relation entre image, corpus, genres d’afférence et statuts (documentaire et artistique).

Genetic inactivation of ClC-5, a voltage-gated chloride channel prominently expressed in the kidney, leads to proteinuria because of defective apical endocytosis in proximal tubular cells. Because thyroid hormone secretion depends on apical endocytosis of thyroglobulin (Tg), we investigated whether ClC-5 is expressed in the thyroid and affects its function, using Clcn5-deficient knockout (KO) mice. We found that ClC-5 is highly expressed in wild-type mouse thyroid ( approximately 40% of mRNA kidney level). The protein was immunolocalized at the apical pole of thyrocytes. In Percoll gradients, ClC-5 overlapped with plasma membrane and early endosome markers, but best codistributed with the late endosomal marker, Rab7. ClC-5 KO mice were euthyroid (normal T4 and TSH serum levels) but developed a goiter with parallel iodine and Tg accumulation (i.e. normal Tg iodination level). When comparing ClC-5 KO with wild-type mice, thyroid 125I uptake after 1 h was doubled, incorporation into Tg was decreased by approximately 2-fold, so that trichloroacetic acid-soluble 125I increased approximately 4-fold. Enhanced 125I- efflux upon perchlorate and presence of 125I-Tg as autoradiographic rings at follicle periphery demonstrated delayed iodide organification. Endocytic trafficking of 125I-Tg toward lysosomes was not inhibited. Expression of pendrin, an I-/Cl- exchanger involved in apical iodide efflux, was selectively decreased by 60% in KO mice at mRNA and protein levels. Thus, ClC-5 is well expressed in the thyroid but is not critical for apical endocytosis, contrary to the kidney. Instead, the goiter associated with ClC-5 KO results from impaired rate of apical iodide efflux by down-regulation of pendrin expression. [less ▲]

Les pouvoirs adjudicateurs désirant avoir une consommation responsable, favorable au développement durable, hésitent souvent à insérer des considérations "autres que strictement économiques" dans leurs procédures d'achat et donc à valoriser les spécificités des entreprises d'économie sociale. Mais d'où vient cette hésitation? L'argument généralement avancé est le fait que l'insertion de considérations autres que strictement économiques va à l'encontre de la logique de marché imposée par la législation nationale, le droit communautaire ou encore l'Accord sur les marchés publics. L'exercice leur apparait dès lors difficile et périlleux. Qu'en est-il de l'état du droit aujourd'hui? [less ▲]
