Suite à un appel d’offre lancé par le contrat de rivière « Haute-Sûre », dans le cadre de l’initiative communautaire INTERREG IV Grande Région et du projet « PACTE Haute-Sûre », le CEBEDEAU a réalisé en collaboration avec l'Aquapôle la mise en œuvre et le suivi d’un réseau de mesure transfrontalier de la qualité physico-chimique des cours d’eau du bassin de la Haute-Sûre belgo luxembourgeoise. Pour ce faire, la mission a été découpée en 3 grandes phases : 1) choix des points de mesure devant faire partie du réseau, des éléments à analyser ; 2) collecte et analyses des échantillons ; 3) traitement des données : inclusion dans une base de données, évaluation de la qualité des eaux, interprétation des résultats et fourniture d’éléments permettant l’évaluation du risque de non atteinte du bon état [less ▲]

De nombreux processus biochimiques impliquent une interaction entre la membrane plasmique et une molécule agissant sur celle-ci. Les peptides antimicrobiens constituent un bel exemple pour les molécules actives sur la membrane. Notre but est de comprendre les interactions de ces peptides avec la membrane plasmique de leurs cellules cibles. En raison de la complexité de la membrane rendant difficile la compréhension de ces processus, nous avons recours à des systèmes plus simples appelée modèles membranaires. Les modèles membranaires sont donc analysés en absence et en présence des peptides antimicrobiens par différentes techniques spectroscopiques afin d’obtenir des informations à l’échelle moléculaire. La présentation revisite ces techniques d’analyse en mettant en évidence leurs potentialités [less ▲]

Planning today is a field in reconstruction where new ways of thinking and making the city are experienced. It is trying to deal with the increasing fragmentation of space and society that is challenging its efficacy - even its relevance. In this chapter, by relying on Actor-Network Theory's concepts and case studies of Beirut's suburbs, we observe and analyze new practices, tools and efforts made to charter new ways for gathering resources and organizing collective action. In these case studies, we can see that in a fragmented city and on a local level, urban development initiatives are not necessarily chaotic juxtapositions of autonomous projects. Local networks including different kinds of actors may well be in action. These local networks represent laboratories experimenting governance arrangements, urban planning tools and territory building strategies by using at-hand resources and know-how. We call this planning approach Bricolage Planning. [less ▲]

Behavioural bioloigists find it difficult to explain the evolution of cooperation among non kin from a strict natural selection point of view. Rather than questionning the paradigm itself, even though it only involves a part of the theroy of evolution, they add variables to the theory as, for example, the fact that cheaters will be found out and punished. By contrast, on the basis of the studies of cooperation among primates, and in terms of the resonses of monkeys in the tests to which they are subjected, I stress how difficult it is to study cooperation among primates outiside the social and emotional context which, in turn, it serves to define. Finally, I prpose that primatology should be open to social science approaches, so that it considers monkeys and apes as actors in interactions rather than as organisms simply carrying out strategis which have been inscribed in them by evolution.

During the last few years, several piano key weirs (PKWs) have been built in France by Electricité de France (EDF). Thanks to the reduced footprint and high release capacities of this new type of weir, making it particularly suited for concrete dams rehabilitation, lots of other projects in varied countries are under construction or study. The prototype use of PKW requires knowledge about its structural behaviour, hydraulic capacities as well as integration into dams’ environment. This paper aims at presenting numerical and physical modelling works performed at the University of Liege to address the last two points. In particular, large scale physical modelling and parametric scale models enabled to understand the hydraulic behaviour of the structure and to highlight its main geometric parameters as well as their best variation interval depending on various criteria related to the weir design (discharge efficiency, cost…). A 1D numerical model has also been developed based on these experimental investigations. It enables to predict in a few minutes, with 10% accuracy, the discharge capacity of a given PKW geometry on its usual operation head range. This model, available as a freeware on http://www.pk-weirs.ulg.ac.be, constitutes a key tool for the first design of such weirs. Finally, the scale model studies of major projects such as Raviège dam (France) for EDF and Ouldjet Mellegue Project (Algeria) for Coyne et Bellier – Tractebel Engineering enable to confront theoretical predictions with experimental results and to address the problem of PKW integration on dam crests.

We present the results of about a decade of efforts toward building an empirical mass distribution for hot B subdwarf stars on the basis of asteroseismology. So far, our group has published detailed analyses pertaining to 16 pulsating B subdwarfs, including estimates of the masses of these pulsators. Given that measurements of the masses of B subdwarfs through more classical methods (such as full orbital solutions in binary stars) have remained far and few, asteroseismology has proven a tool of choice in this endeavor. On the basis of a first sample of 15 pulsators, we find a relatively sharp mass distribution with a mean mass of 0.470 M⊙, a median value of 0.470 M⊙, and a narrow range 0.441−0.499 M⊙ containing some 68.3% of the stars. We augmented our sample with the addition of seven stars (components of eclipsing binaries) with masses reliably established through light curve modeling and spectroscopy. The new distribution is very similar to the former one with a mean mass of 0.470 M⊙, a median value of 0.471 M⊙, and a slightly wider range 0.439−0.501 M⊙ containing some 68.3% of the stars. Although still based on small-number statistics, our derived empirical mass distribution compares qualitatively very well with the expectations of stellar evolution theory. [less ▲]

Background This study aimed at assessing factors associated to the duration of sickness absence after a back injury in the Belgian working population, with a special emphasis on cultural factors. Methods The data were retrieved from the Belgian Fund for Work Accidents database over a three-year period (2001-2003). The population source involved all Belgian workers under a job contract in the private sector registered as compensated cases for an accident that occurred at the workplace (n=558276). From that database, all back injury cases involving a complete data set and registered during the first 6 months of each year (n= 11262) were selected and eight factors (gender, age, seniority in the current job, job category, accident regional location, enterprise size, sector of activity and accident circumstances) were analyzed in relation to the outcome variable, sick leave duration recorded as ordered time intervals between 0 day and 183-366 days. Results Sick leave duration was strongly associated in a multivariate model to age (>= 40 years: OR=2.18), blue collar job (1.55), work in building industry (1.32) and enterprise size (>100 : 0.85), and to a less extent to seniority (>10y: 0.88), and circumstance of accident (falls: 1.26). Injuries occurring in the French-speaking part of the country were associated to a longer sick leave (1.07; p=0.034). Conclusions This study shows that besides well-known risk factors, subtle cultural language-linked factors and/or regional differences in economic climate may significantly influence the length of disability period after a back injury.
