Substructured and layered thin sheets can be found in a variety of structural, e.g. structured panels, as well as high-tech applications. A typical example is flexible electronics, e.g. flexible displays, where layers of different materials and interconnects are stacked to provide the necessary functionality. The resulting complex three dimensional geometry of the structured thin sheets in this type of applications prohibits the use of classical layer-wise composite shell theory. For these problems, a computational homogenization technique for thin structured sheets is proposed in this work, based on the computational homogenization concepts previously developed for the first- and second-order continua.

Stress intensity factors (SIFs) computation techniques based on J-integral methods [1] are widely used in finite element codes. However, the Displacement Extrapolation Method (DEM) [2] is an alternative way to compute them. The idea is to process an extrapolation based on the relative displacement of the crack face nodes. This method is generally less accurate than integral methods, but it requires much less computational resources. The method is well documented and is implemented in some finite element software. The X-FEM introduced in [3] is suited for crack problems. However, the literature on DEM in the X-FEM case seems to be non-existent in the present time. This paper tries to fill this lack in the literature by describing a new method using X-FEM. The approach followed here is only developed for Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics. Note that the finite element software Code_Aster [4] already computes SIFs with DEM in X-FEM, but in a slightly different way. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a mosquito-borne viral zoonosis caused by a phlebovirus and transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. Humans can also be infected through direct contact with blood (aerosols) or tissues (placenta, stillborn) of infected animals. Although severe clinical cases can be observed, infection with RVF virus (RVFV) in humans is, in most cases, asymptomatic or causes a febrile illness without serious symptoms. In small ruminants RVFV mainly causes abortion and neonatal death. The distribution of RVFV has been well documented in many African countries, particularly in the north (Egypt, Sudan), east (Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia), west (Senegal, Mauritania) and south (South Africa), but also in the Indian Ocean (Madagascar, Mayotte) and the Arabian Peninsula. In contrast, the prevalence of RVFV has rarely been investigated in central African countries. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We therefore conducted a large serological survey of rural populations in Gabon, involving 4,323 individuals from 212 randomly selected villages (10.3% of all Gabonese villages). RVFV-specific IgG was found in a total of 145 individuals (3.3%) suggesting the wide circulation of Rift Valley fever virus in Gabon. The seroprevalence was significantly higher in the lakes region than in forest and savannas zones, with respective rates of 8.3%, 2.9% and 2.2%. In the lakes region, RVFV-specific IgG was significantly more prevalent in males than in females (respectively 12.8% and 3.8%) and the seroprevalence increased gradually with age in males but not in females. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Although RVFV was suggested to circulate at a relatively high level in Gabon, no outbreaks or even isolated cases have been documented in the country. The higher prevalence in the lakes region is likely to be driven by specific ecologic conditions favorable to certain mosquito vector species. Males may be more at risk of infection than females because they spend more time farming and hunting outside the villages, where they may be more exposed to mosquito bites and infected animals. Further investigations are needed to determine the putative sylvan cycle of RVFV, including the mosquito species and the reservoir role of wild animals in the viral maintenance cycle. [less ▲]

Promoting permanent adhesion between so dissimilar materials as polymers and metals is a very challenging target and a severe brake to the implementation of many potential applications. However, synthetic polymers can now be chemisorbed onto a variety of conducting surfaces by cathodic electrografting of acrylic monomers. The first part of this review will focus on the fundamental aspects of this emerging technology, thus from the historical discovery to experimental and theoretical developments, with the purpose to better comprehend the electrografting phenomenon. Once firmly established, this concept has been exploited in order to make polymeric coatings with specific functionality chemisorbed onto more diversified substrates in more convenient liquid media. This remarkable progress that largely relies on advanced controlled polymerization processes will be the topic of the second part of the review, with a special emphasis on the more recent development of smart coatings, particularly stimuli responsive coatings very well-suited to nanotechnologies.

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are principal participants in tumor development. In addition to serve as a useful biochemical marker, MMP expression may also provide a target for the diagnostic in vivo imaging of tumors, using a radiolabeled inhibitor. This study investigates the use of membrane type 1 (MT1)-MMP as target for in vivo tumor diagnosis. Specific binding of the endogenous tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) to MT1-MMP has been previously described. In this study, biodistribution and imaging experiments were performed on MT1-MMP-overexpressing (S.1.5) and control (C.IV.3) tumor-inoculated mice using [(123)I]-recombinant human TIMP-2 (rhTIMP-2) as radioligand and [(123)I]-rhTIMP-1 as control. The expression profile was controlled in vitro and on tumor extracts. rhTIMP-2 as well as rhTIMP-1 were labeled using the Iodogen method and characterized. Biodistribution of [(123)I]-rhTIMP-2 showed a tumor uptake of 2.87% +/- 1.58% ID/g at 3 hours postinjection in S.1.5. Tumor values of [(123)I]-rhTIMP-1 and [(123)I]-rhTIMP-2 evaluated in S.1.5 and C.IV.3, respectively, were significantly lower. Planar imaging revealed significant uptake of [(123)I]-rhTIMP-2 in S.1.5 compared with contralateral background areas. This could not be observed in C.IV.3 and with [(123)I]-rhTIMP-1 in S.1.5. All tumors were well established (200-800 mg). These results suggest that rhTIMP-2 holds potential for development of radiotracers for in vivo imaging in overexpressing MT1-MMP but not in similar tumors that do not express this protease.
