We show that a remarkable compatibility exists between the results of a potential model with constituent quarks and the 1/Nc expansion mass formula for strange and nonstrange baryon resonances. Such compatibility brings support to the basic assumptions of relativistic quark models and sheds light on the physical content of the model-independent large Nc mass formula. Good agreement between both approaches is also found for heavy baryons, made of one heavy and two light quarks, in the ground state band. [less ▲]

Some structural and hydrodynamic properties of RCM-NCX-1116, a Ni-Cr metallic foam packing manufactured by Recemat International B.V (The Netherlands) are investigated using X-ray radiography and X-ray micro-tomography. Local values of porosity and pore diameters are measured on a foam sample 3D image obtained with a Skyscan-1172 high-resolution desk-top micro-CT system operated at 100 kV. Structural parameters computed on tomography images agree well with manufacturer data. Hydrodynamic tests are performed in a flat rectangular column packed with a sheet of metallic foam packing. Measurements are realized with a single-phase flow of liquid as well as with a counter-current flow of gas and liquid. Dynamic and static liquid holdup distributions and liquid radial spreading coefficient are measured on 2D radiographic images of the bed obtained with the high energy large scale ULG 420 kV scanner operated in the radiographic mode at 420 kV. Pressure drop measurements are successfully compared to experimental results reported in literature, as well as to the literature model predictions and to values computed using an in-house Lattice Boltzmann CFD simulation code.

El capítulo es la pormenorizada exposición de los datos de análisis y de contenido de una investigación en Terminología bilingüe (francés y español) aplicada al derecho. En dicha disciplina, el análisis nocional designa el método mediante el cual se investiga la adecuada relación entre los conceptos y sus denominaciones. Ahora bien, los conceptos de “fuerza irresistible” y de “miedo insuperable” dentro de la categoría de “Causas de justificación” (en derecho español) y el de “Contrainte (physique ou morale)” entre las “Causes d’exonération” (en derecho belga y francés) presentan un caso de relación interlingüística totalmente encubierta, a primera vista, bajo varias pantallas (desglose diferente entre las dos lenguas-derechos, influencia del latín y del derecho romano, etc.), que obstaculizan las claras soluciones finales. El proceso de acercamiento a una solución de adecuada puesta en equivalencia entre los términos de dos lenguas y entre las nociones de dos derechos será expuesto en detalle, mostrando las vías de descubrimiento de las adecuadas equivalencias nocionales o funcionales, salvando las apariencias engañosas de las denominaciones, gracias al llamado análisis nocional.

De la communication, souligner non les vertus, mais les vices ; examiner, au titre de ses pathologies - et plus spécialement de ses pathologies sociales -, non les biais dont elle peut faire l'objet, mais ceux à la source desquels il arrive qu'elle se trouve ; l'envisager, non comme facteur de prévention ou de résorption de ces pathologies, mais plutôt comme leur éventuel vecteur d'aggravation circulaire, voilà comment pourrait être résumé à grands traits le propos du dossier ouvert dans la présente livraison de Questions de communication. Programme exorbitant : quelques articles réunis pour la cause ne sauraient épuiser ni même baliser avec précision une problématique pouvant aller, de façon très reçue, des phénomènes d'addiction électronique et des syndromes de déréalisation ou d'isolement induits par les technologies du virtuel aux dispositifs de propagande et autres techniques de lissage des différends politiques ou sociaux. Programme qui n'en paraîtra pas moins incongru au regard des conceptions enchantées de la communication et de la doxa qui l'institue non seulement en principe actif de la vie sociale en général, mais encore en ressource de première nécessité et en valeur indiscutable.

We present numerical modeling of earthquake ground motion for various profiles across the Swiss Rhône Valley and characterize the seismic response in terms of spectral acceleration. First, we evaluate the relative amplification of 2D with respect to 1D response. Then, we show how the selected bedrock spectrum influences the response spectra of the valley sites. Particular attention is paid to how the internal sediment structure and the often weakly constrained Q-factor shape the seismic response. Results obtained for the different profiles are compared with reference spectra (Swiss building code and Eurocode 8) and for one profile with recorded data as well. From this comparison, we infer that the surficial layer strongly influences spectral acceleration values between 0.1 and 1 s. The total thickness of sediments significantly affects the seismic response at larger periods around the fundamental period of the studied valley sections between 1.8 and 3.6 s. [less ▲]

Located in the floodplain of the Mekong River and the Tonle Sap River, Batheay irrigation system and its reservoir directly receive floodwater from the Mekong. The Batheay reservoir formedby a ring dike functions as botha reservoir anda paddy field. In thewet season, the ring dike prevents floodwater fromentering the reservoir and rainy season rice is growninside the dike. After harvesting, the gateson the ring dike are openedto receive floodwater. The water is stored inside the dike for cultivating dry season rice outside the dike. In this paper, the irrigation system is studied as a model site for future development of the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake of Cambodia. Specifically, this paper is concerned with the study of water balance and analysis of the hydrologic components of the Batheay irrigation system, and the effectiveness of the ring dike system. The study found that floodwater of the Mekong River contributed about 74% to the total inflow to the Batheay reservoir. Contributions to the total water supply of reservoir water, floodwater remaining in the fields, and precipitation were 73, 12, and 15%, respectively. The efficiency of the systemwas found to be 92%. The dike system is expected to be a paradigm for the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake. [less ▲]

Summary Background The primary end-point in the management of asthma is to obtain optimal control. The aim of this study was to assess the relationships between the markers of airway inflammation (sputum eosinophilia and exhaled nitric oxide), bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) and asthma control. Methods One hundred and thirty-four patients were recruited from our asthma clinic between January 2004 and September 2005 [mean age: 42 years, mean forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV(1)): 86% predicted]. Eighty-six of them were treated by inhaled corticosteroids, 99 were atopic and 23 were current smokers. They all underwent detailed investigations including fractional-exhaled nitric oxide (FE(NO)) measurement, sputum induction and methacholine challenge when FEV(1) was >70% predicted, and filled in a validated asthma control questionnaire (ACQ6 Juniper). Results When dividing patients into the three groups according to their level of asthma control determined by ACQ [well-controlled asthma (ACQ score </=0.75), borderline (0.75<ACQ score <1.5) and uncontrolled asthma (ACQ score >/=1.5)], it appeared that uncontrolled asthmatics had a greater BHR to methacholine and sputum eosinophilia than controlled asthma (P<0.05, P<0.001, respectively). By contrast, we failed to show significant differences in the FE(NO) levels between the groups. With receiver-operating characteristic curves for differentiating uncontrolled (ACQ>/=1.5) from controlled and borderline (ACQ<1.5) asthma, sputum eosinophilia and methacholine responsiveness were found to be more accurate than FE(NO) (area under the curve: 0.72, 0.72 and 0.59, respectively). Conclusion In a broad spectrum of asthmatics encountered in clinical practice, sputum eosinophilia and methacholine bronchial hyperresponsiveness, but not FE(NO), are associated with uncontrolled asthma.
