Le Syndrome de Désadaptation PsychoMotrice (SDPM) représente une entité clinique typiquement gériatrique. Il regroupe des troubles posturaux tels que la rétropulsion du corps, des troubles de la marche peu spécifiques, des signes neurologiques comme une akinésie axiale et une hypertonie, ainsi que des troubles psychocomportementaux proches de ceux retrouvés dans la dépression. Son diagnostic repose tant sur la clinique que sur les données iconographiques. Ce syndrome cause des chutes qui occasionnent un sentiment d’insécurité chez la personne âgée. Celle-ci se dévalorise, risque de se replier sur elle-même et de perdre son autonomie et tout contact social. Dans cet article, nous évoquerons brièvement la physiopathologie, tenterons de rappeler les outils diagnostiques et proposerons une prise en charge des patients souffrant de ce syndrome. [less ▲]

The additional energy spread due to sample porosity was implemented in the SIMNRA simulation code, version 6.60 and higher. Deviations of the path length and energy loss distributions from the ones expected from a Poisson distribution of the number of traversed pores are taken into account. These deviations are due to the interaction of pores at higher pore concentrations by overlap or blocking. The skewnesses of the energy distributions are approximated by two-piece normal distributions with identical first three moments. Propagation of porosity-induced energy spread in thick layers is taken into account. Calculated results are compared to experimental data obtained with thin TiO2 mesoporous films measured by Rutherford backscattering (RBS),transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and atmospheric poroellipsometry.

Model parameterization through adjustment to field data is a crucial step in the modeling and the understanding of the drainage network response to tectonic or climatic perturbations. Using as a test case a data set of 18 knickpoints that materialize the migration of a 0.7-Ma-old erosion wave in the Ourthe catchment of northern Ardennes (western Europe), we explore the impact of various data fitting on the calibration of the stream power model of river incision, from which a simple knickpoint celerity equation is derived. Our results show that statistical least squares adjustments (or misfit functions) based either on the streamwise distances between observed and modeled knickpoint positions at time t or on differences between observed and modeled time at the actual knickpoint locations yield significantly different values for the m and K parameters of the model. As there is no physical reason to prefer one of these approaches, an intermediate least-rectangles adjustment might at first glance appear as the best compromise. However, the statistics of the analysis of 200 sets of synthetic knickpoints generated in the Ourthe catchment indicate that the timebased adjustment is the most capable of getting close to the true parameter values. Moreover, this fitting method leads in all cases to an m value lower than that obtained from the classical distance adjustment (for example, 0.75 against 0.86 for the real case of the Ourthe catchment), corresponding to an increase in the non-linear character of the dependence of knickpoint celerity on discharge [less ▲]

Introduction Un acide gras (AG) est un acide carboxylique avec une longue chaine aliphatique, qui peut être saturé ou insaturé. Récemment, le rôle des AG, particulièrement, celui des oméga-3 et oméga-6, a émergé comme facteur de risque cardiovasculaire dans la littérature. Le but de ce travail était de comparer les taux d’AG mesurés dans une population saine avec ceux obtenus chez des patients admis aux urgences pour un infarctus du myocarde. Matériels et méthodes Cinquante quatre sujets sains (33±11ans, 31 femmes) ont été sélectionnés comme population de référence. Ces derniers ont été sélectionnés selon leur mode de vie (alimentation, tabac, etc). En parallèle, nous avons dosé les AG chez 33 patients (55±9 ans, 12 femmes) admis dans le service d’urgence de notre institution pour infarctus aigu du myocarde (AMI). Le sang était prélevé sur EDTA. Avant l’analyse, les échantillons étaient lavés et transméthylés. Le dosage des AG était réalisé par chromatographie gazeuse couplée à un détecteur à ionisation de flamme (GCFID). Après le dosage, nous avons réalisés une comparaison des taux, sommes et rapport entre les différents AG ainsi que l’index oméga-3 (somme de l’acide eicosapentaénoïque et docosahexaénoïque) obtenus dans les 2 groupes. Résultats. Des valeurs de référence ont été obtenues pour notre population de référence via le logiciel de statistique MedCalc. Dans le groupe AMI, les taux d’oméga-6 étaient significativement plus élevés (p<0.05) pour C18:2n6 (Figure 1) et C18:3n6 (Figure 2)comparés aux résultats obtenus dans la population de référence. Par contre les taux d’oméga-3 étaient significativement plus bas (p<0.01) par rapport aux sujets de référence pour le C22 :6n3 (Figure 3). L’index oméga-3 montrait une valeur plus basse et le rapport oméga-6/oméga-3 était plus élevé dans le groupe AMI comparé aux sujets de référence. Conclusion Le dosage des AG est un nouvel outil que le laboratoire peut proposer aux cliniciens afin de stratifier les patients présentant le plus de risque cardiovasculaire avant ou après un infarctus du myocarde. Ces patients pourraient ainsi être supplémenté en acides gras oméga-3 afin d’éviter les récidives d’infarctus du myocarde ou de diminuer la formation de la plaque d’athérosclérose avant le premier accident.

Finite element (FE) models accurately compute the mechanical response of bone and bone-like materials when the models include their detailed microstructure. In order to simulate non-linear behavior, which currently is only feasible at the expense of extremely high computational costs, coarser models can be used if the local morphology has been linked to the apparent mechanical behavior. The aim of this paper is to implement and validate such a constitutive law. This law is able to capture the non-linear structural behavior of bone-like materials through the use of fabric tensors. It also allows for irreversible strains using an elastoplastic material model incorporating hardening. These features are expressed in a constitutive law based on the anisotropic continuum damage theory coupled with isotropic elastoplasticity in a finite strains framework. This material model was implemented into Metafor, a non-linear FE software. The implementation was validated against experimental data of cylindrical samples subjected to compression. Three materials with bone-like microstructure were tested : aluminum foams of variable density (ERG, Oakland, CA), PLA (polylactic acid) foam (CERM, University of Liège) and cancellous bone tissue of a deer antler (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Liège).

Improvements on the Liége cyclotron have yielded an energy resolution comparable to that of classic electrostatic accelerators. The latest upgrades of the High-Energy High-Resolution beam line (HE-HR) are presented which consist of the addition of both a new extraction nozzle for non-invasive in-air measurements and a new particle-detection setup developed to take full advantage of the increased probed thickness with depth sensitive analytical methods. The suitability of the new setup and the advantages provided by the larger flexibility in choosing both the proper particle with an extended energy available will be illustrated by discussing latest results of studies recently led on Roman gilding techniques on cultural heritage artifacts by means of “High-Energy” alpha backscattering spectrometry combined with PIXE.

Rapport de recherches final présentant les résultats du projet de recherches SAFE (2009-2012). Le projet de recherches SAFE portait sur l'évaluation énergétique des quartiers périurbains existants dans le but d'en améliorer l'efficience énergétique par le développement de nouveaux modes de conception et de planification des tissus périurbains. L'objectif concret de ce projet de recherche est d'offrir un outil informatique interactif, accessible sur le web (www.safe-energie.be), qui permette d'évaluer l'efficience énergétique des lotissements wallons existants et de comparer différentes stratégies de renouvellement périurbain. Cet outil est destiné à l'ensemble des acteurs du processus de conception, réalisation et rénovation du milieu urbain. L'outil informatique développé estl'aboutissement d'une recherche de pointe basée sur la modélisation énergétique de quartiers périurbains à l'aide de simulations du microclimat urbain (logiciel de CFD, etc), de simulations dynamiques des consommations énergétiques des bâtiments pendant leur utilisation et de simulations énergétiques des fragments urbains sur l'ensemble de leur cycle de vie (intégrant l'évaluation énergétique des bâtiments, du transport et des réseaux d'énergie).

Aims: The X-ray emission of massive stars has been studied when these objects are in their main-sequence phase, as well as in their Wolf-Rayet phase. However, the X-ray properties of the transitional Luminous Blue Variable (LBV) phase remain unknown. Methods: Using a dedicated but limited XMM survey as well as archival XMM and Chandra observations, we performed the first X-ray survey of LBVs: about half of the known LBVs or candidate LBVs are studied. Results: Apart from the well known X-ray sources eta Car and Cyg OB2 #12, four additional LBVs are detected in this survey, though some doubt remains on the association with the X-ray source for two of these. For the other LBVs, upper limits on the flux were derived, down to $\log[L_{\rm X}/L_{\rm BOL}]-9.4$ for PCyg. This variety in the strength of the X-ray emission is discussed, with particular emphasis on the potential influence of binarity. [less ▲]

In the areas of design, especially in architectural design, collaboration has become an important challenge. The specialization of skills increase, work teams are more and more extensive and the geographic distance between them increases too. The economic and ecological stakes related to remote collaboration are an evidence. This context involves the need to support most efficiently possible remote working meetings. We present the Distributed Collaborative Digital Studio (DSDC), a tool designed to recreate, in distant situations, the context of copresence meetings. This shared environment is created in the “invisible computer” approach. The idea is that the tool should disappear from user’s consciousness. Indeed, creative design activities require some fluidity in their process. Therefore, any involuntary interruption created by the system can potentially brake creativity. In this perspective, we investigate specifically the “invisibility” of our environment. To do this, we propose a framework for the operationalization of the concept and a methodology to test the system invisibility. This methodology was applied through a case study consisting of a corpus of 12 hours of remote collaborative design sessions with the DSDC. We highlight the learning effects while using our system, conclude on its effectiveness and discuss our methodology. [less ▲]
