In a hybrid approach experimental model data are combined with results from 3D and 2D numerical modelling. The latter was conducted by two different models solving the depth-averaged shallow water equations. 3D computations are based on the REYNOLDS-averaged NAVIER-STOKES equations (RANS) using a volume of fluid approach to capture the free water surface. Measurements were performed on a scale model which was especially designed to reproduce the specific conditions of dike breaks. In various simulations it turned out that 2D shallow water models are able to reproduce steadystate flow patterns of dike-break induced flows and that there is a low sensitivity of the solution concerning turbulence modelling, bed and wall roughness. Nevertheless, final flow splits and breach discharges are systematically underestimated. This discrepancy seems to result from inherent modelling assumptions such as zero-vertical velocity and hydrostatic pressure distribution. Therefore, the complementary use of 3D RANS and 2D depth-averaged modelling frameworks for detailed predictions of dike-break induced flows is discussed in the present paper, based on BOUSSINESQ and pressure coefficients, which represent effects of non-uniform velocity profiles and non-hydrostatic pressure distribution over water depth, respectively. Values of these coefficients are inferred from 3D numerical results for the final steady state. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 51 (8 ULg)

BACKGROUND: Coagulopathies detected in horses with gastrointestinal problems seem to be associated with poor outcome. Plasma D-Dimer concentration is a sensitive test for assessing coagulopathies. HYPOTHESIS: Plasma D-Dimer concentration tested on admission is related to diagnosis and outcome in horses with colic. ANIMALS: Four hundred and ninety three horses referred for evaluation of abdominal pain. METHODS: Prospective observational clinical study. Horses were grouped according to diagnosis (medical and surgical intestinal obstructions, ischemic disorders with and without intestinal resection, enteritis, peritonitis), outcome (survivors, nonsurvivors), and number of coagulopathies (normal profile, 1 or 2 coagulopathies, subclinical disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC]). Blood samples were collected on admission and plasma D-Dimer concentration, clotting times (PT and aPTT), and antithrombin activity were determined. Positive likelihood ratios (LR+) were calculated for evaluation of D-Dimer cut-off values, which were later tested in a logistic regression model. RESULTS: Horses with enteritis or peritonitis had significantly (P<.001) higher plasma D-Dimer concentrations and more severe coagulopathies on admission than horses with other diagnoses. Nonsurvivors also had significantly (P<.001) higher plasma D-Dimer concentrations at presentation than did survivors, and those horses with subclinical DIC on presentation had an odds ratio (OR) 8.6 (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.3-22.5, P<.001) for nonsurvival. Finally, D-Dimer concentrations>4,000 ng/mL had a LR+ of 5.9 and an OR 8.8 (95% CI, 4.5-17.1, P<.001) for nonsurvival. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Plasma D-Dimer concentration measured on admission can be used to facilitate diagnosis and outcome prediction in horses with colic. A potential cut-off value for nonsurvival was found at approximately 4,000 ng/mL. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 8 (0 ULg)

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Acid-base disturbances are traditionally assessed using the Henderson-Hasselbach equation. The simplified strong ion approach describes more accurately the complex acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities present in endurance horses. OBJECTIVE: To describe acid-base and electrolytes changes in fit horses competing in a FEI*** 120 km endurance race and to compare the traditional vs. strong ion approaches. METHODS: Thirty horses were initially enrolled in the study. Venous blood samples were obtained before the race (n = 25), at the second (n = 29; 65.4 km) and third vet-gates (n = 23, 97.4 km) and upon race completion (n = 17). Blood gas analysis was performed to determine pH, PCO(2), PO(2), Na(+), K(+) and iCa(++), and calculate HCO(3)(-), base excess and tCO(2). Packed cell volume and total protein, globulin, albumin, lactate, phosphate, glucose and creatinine concentrations, as well as muscle enzymes activities, were also determined. Calculated variables included strong ion difference (SIDm), strong ion gap (SIG) and nonvolatile buffer concentration (A(tot)). A longitudinal linear model using the general estimating equation methodology was used for statistical analysis. RESULTS: Mild but significant increases in PCO(2), SIDm, lactate, plasma protein, globulins and A(tot), as well as a decrease in potassium concentrations were observed from the second vet-gate to race finish when compared to prerace values (P < 0.05). Using the strong ion approach, 67% samples showed acid-base disturbances vs. 70% when using the traditional method, but their interpretations only matched in 24% of measurements. CONCLUSIONS: A complex acid-base imbalance characterised by a mild strong ion alkalosis (hypochloraemia attenuated by hyperlactataemia), nonvolatile buffer acidosis and compensatory mild respiratory acidosis were present in most horses, although pH did not significantly change during a 120 km endurance race. The strong ion approach to interpretation of acid-base balance should be favoured over the traditional approach in endurance horses, given the frequent and complex alterations in PCO(2), SIDm and A(tot) during a race.

A model limited to motivation construct to explain the way from setting a vocational goal to its achievement cannot claim to give an account of how to overcome regulatory problems during goal striving. A model linking volition to motivation is needed. In particular, implementation intentions have been proved to be effective in helping the initiation of goal striving, shielding goal pursuit from unwelcome influences, and disengagement from not successful courses of action. It is proposed to extend the application of this volitional cognitive tool to career counselling. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 117 (19 ULg)
