Surface-charged nanofibers were prepared by electrospinning technique (ESP). For this purpose, a copolymer bearing carboxylic acid functions was added to a poly(D,L-lactide) solution just before ESP process. In a basic medium, negative charges were therefore revealed on fiber surface. By deposition of positively charged particles or polyelectrolytes, surface properties of the fibers could be tailor-made for a specific application. This versatile method can, for example, be applied to the preparation of new biomedical scaffolds. [less ▲]

Particle packing on meso-level has a significant influence on workability of fresh concrete and also on the mechanical and durability properties of the matured material. It was demonstrated earlier that shape exerts but a marginal influence on the elastic properties of concrete provided being packed to the same density, which is not necessarily the case with different types of aggregate. Hence, elastic properties of concrete can be treated as approximately structure-insensitive parameters. However, fracture behaviour can be expected structure-sensitive. This is supported by the present study based on discrete element method (DEM) simulated three-phase concrete, namely aggregate, matrix and interfacial transition zones (ITZs). Fracture properties are assessed with the aid of a finite element method (FEM) based on the damage materials model. Effects on tensile strength due to grain shape and packing density are investigated. Shape differences are shown to have only modest influence. Significant effects are exerted by packing density and physical-mechanical properties of the phases, whereby the ITZ takes up a major position. [less ▲]

Hypertension is a common treatable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Even when identified and treated, most patients with hypertension do not reach the blood pressure goal and they often need in fact three antihypertensive agents to achieve blood pressure control. Although various combinations of two therapies are currently available for the treatment of hypertension, development of more powerful therapies with 3 molecules is necessary to control more hypertensive patients. Amlodipine/Olmesartan/hydrochlorothiazide (Sevikar/HCT°) is a new triple combination of antihypertensive agents that lower blood pressure via calcium channel blockade, angiotensin receptor blockade and diuretic action. Its potent triple mechanism of action is also likely to attenuate compound-specific adverse events, such as amlodipine-related peripheral oedema or sartan-induced hyperkalemia. Moreover, by reducing the number of pills to be taken every day, the compliance should be better. Currently available data show that such a combination is very powerful and well-tolerated allowing more patients with all grades of hypertension (especially those with the most severe forms) to reach the blood pressure target. The contraindications are those of each compound. [less ▲]

This work is part of the research for appropriate methods for sustainable management of the sandy soils of the province of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo), in order to ensure and guarantee the adequate food security. It consists of a scientic research of the use of composts produced from household organic waste in improving the quality of sandy soils to the province of Kinshasa. The general objective pursued in this work is to evaluate the impact of four repeated applications of organic matter from bio-waste compost on chemical and biochemical parameters dynamics in acid sandy soils and their productivity. A pilot composting on a small scale has been installed for the production of composts from municipal solid waste and characterization of composts obtained has revealed the agronomic potential that presents this material. The diagnosis of the condition agropedological soils revealed that soils of the three study sites are sandy classified as rubics arenoferrasols (dystrics), have excellent physical conditions for drainage, air circulation and root penetration possess variables charges colloids, show an acid reaction, low organic matter and low nutrient minerals contents. In addition, their water and nutrients retentions capacity are very limited, and are the main soil constraints to agricultural productivity of these soils. After four growing seasons in real environments, the study of the reaction with the soil organic amendments (20, 40, 60 t.ha-1 MB) gave satisfactory results. The provision of continuous additions of organic composts significantly increased the values of pH, TOC, CEC, SB eff and reduced the rate of exchangeable Al saturation in the three sites. With the highest dose T3 (60 t.ha-1 MB), the pH increased at least 0.8 units and the carbon content multiplied by 2.5 to 3 on the three sites. CEC values increased from 3.3 to 5.02 cmol(+)mg.kg-1 and the toxic aluminum saturation decreased more effective than 90%. Regarding biochemical parameters (microbial carbon & nitrogen, RB, RIS, APA, Unt, Ut), compost treatments induced a significant improvement in function and doses applied throughout the experiment. These contributions have induced microbial activity which contributed to the increase in soil nutrients (N, P, ...) by microbiological activities. The availability of nutrients and fourniture of carbon by the composts explain these increases. In addition, yields on different test plants (Glycine max L. Merr, Arachis hypogaea L. and Hibiscus sabbariffa L.) were positively influenced by the treatments of organic composts household wastes. Compared with mineral fertilizers, their fertilizing potential is not negligible. According to the results observed, doses ≥ 40 t.ha MB-1 should be to keep and maintain an acceptable level of fertility and yields potentiel of crops. But low doses were more efficient than high doses of agronomic point of view. Doses ≤ 20 t.ha-1 MB are recommended in annual crop and regular. Phosphorus was found to be the most limiting element to agricultural production of soil sites studied whatever of the types of amendments and cultures used. Finally, the study indicates that for reasons of efficiency, availability and funds increased production may be obtained through synergy between the composts used in small quantities and fertilizer mineral supplements.

Wind tunnels are experimental installations that create an airflow going past a test object. In a controlled and safe environment, they can recreate real-life situations, like an aircraft flying at 30,000ft and 950km/h or a storm blasting a bridge deck. In this way the aerodynamic forces acting on structures can be measured, the flow-field around them can be visualised and fundamental research on aerodynamics can be carried out. Wind tunnels have been invaluable tools to aircraft, automobile and civil engineering designers for over 100 years. However, a significant number of wind tunnels have been decommissioned over the last 20 years, both in Europe and in the United States. Some of these closures have made the news, for instance the decommissioning of the NASA Ames facilities. There are many reasons for this phenomenon and a significant number of possible implications.
