A health promotion process has been launched within a large Belgian university hospital. This presentation outlines the organisational background of the whole process and the rationale underlining the choice of the methodologies used to survey the health needs of the health care workers and to define priorities. In order to elicit effective participation from the staff members, several questions have to be addressed in the transitional phase between problem situations assessment and ergonomic intervention : which channels use to disseminate the information about the survey results, what role for the top rnanagernent of the hospital and for the ergonomic experts, which support methodologies should be provided for initiating the change process?

Landscape infrastructures are numerous. They can be hedgerows, woodlands or wildflower strips. They are known to provide ecosystem services such as reducing soil erosion and nutrient leaching or support biodiversity conservation. They may also help to biologically control pests. But conclusions of research papers are not unanimous about the positive effect of wildflower strips to control pests in fields. The cause may be the type of flower mixes sown in fields. In this context, the concept of functional diversity may be useful to constitute flower mixes that better enhance biological control. [less ▲]

The aluminium alkoxide mediated ring-opening polymerization of (di)lactones offers a great versatility to the point where the main situations covered by the definition of living and controlled polymerizations can be illustrated. Furthermore, substitution of a coordination-insertion mechanism for the traditional anionic polymerization of these monomers results in species of lower reactivity and in a kinetic control of the polyaddition reaction. This control, combined with the use of Al alkoxides of different structures and functionalities, has opened the way to the macromolecular design of a family of biocompatible and biodegradable polyesters, e.g., controlled synthesis of telechelic polymers, block and graft copolymers, and polymers of various molecular architectures. These polymers can be used as such, or as building parts of more sophisticated polymeric assemblies. [less ▲]

Patient-specific finite element (FE) modelling is gaining more and more attention over the years because of its potential to improve clinical treatment and surgical outcomes. Thanks to patient-specific modelling, the design of individualised implants and prostheses, surgical pre-operative planning and simulation, and the computation of stresses and strains in a patient's organ for diagnostic purposes will become a reality in the future. This work investigates two of the most challenging tasks of patient-specific modelling: the creation of image-based finite element meshes and the development of a low-order locking-free tetrahedral element. First, a general meshing strategy for tetrahedral mesh generation from segmented 3D images is proposed. The originality of the approach is the addition of surface reconstruction algorithm to the traditional image-to-mesh pipeline. The main advantages for this are: the generation of smooth boundaries, robustness to segmentation noise, a user-defined mesh resolution and a good fidelity of the mesh boundaries with respect to the underlying image. Also, the proposed meshing strategy is capable of generating meshes of heterogeneous structures, containing several interconnected types of tissues. Applications demonstrate that the interfaces between distinct material regions are topologically correct, i.e. the connections are edge-on-edge and node-on-node. Specific mesh decimation and mesh smoothing algorithms were designed for this multi-material tetrahedral mesh generator. In a last chapter, patient-specific hexahedral meshes are created by combining the proposed surface reconstruction algorithm with a classical voxel-conversion algorithm. Second, a low-order tetrahedral element for the solution of solid mechanics problems involving nearly incompressible materials is developed. The formulation is based on F-bar methodologies and nodal-based formulations. As in nodal based formulations, nodal Jacobians are defined. These nodal quantities are then averaged over the element to define a modified elemental Jacobian, which is used to define a modified deformation gradient, F-bar, for the element. Both 2D triangular and 3D tetrahedral are proposed and they can be used for both implicit and explicit analysis. The exact stiffness terms for the tangent stiffness matrix are derived so that a quadratic convergence rate in ensured for the Newton-Raphson equilibrium iterations. Most importantly, the new element can be used regardless the material model. Benchmarking 2D and 3D numerical tests using several constitutive models indicate a substantial removing of both the volumetric and the shear locking tendency of the standard linear triangle and tetrahedron, as well as an accurate distribution of strain, stress and pressure fields. The potential of the resulting image - to - FE model procedure is demonstrated in the last part of this work, through patient-specific finite element analyses of actual biomechanical research topics.

Microorganisms living in extreme conditions have now been isolated from all type of extreme environments and numerous extremozymes originating from these organisms have been described and characterized. Indeed, most of their potential resides in their enzymes. As stated by Huston in 2008 : “As environmental concerns arise, biological tools are increasingly replacing harsh chemical and physical means of processing materials and they even harbor promise for creating cost-effective sustainable energy sources. It is imperative that we continue investigating ways in which natural products can offer economical alternatives to traditional industrial processes”. In this context the search for valuable extremophiles and their integration in industrial processes will, without any doubt, fulfill these objectives in extending the use of microorganisms and of their products to unexpected transformations. Extensive investigations on extremophiles were therefore carried out for the reason that the large diversity of these organisms allowed to think that it is probably possible to find within them the appropriate isolate that produces the best possible product for a specific application. Of course these organisms have to be unravelled and their peculiarities sometimes render the culture conditions inappropriate. The recent emergence of the metagenomic approach has, however, modified the context and has now rendered possible the investigation of the world of non cultivable microorganisms. Indeed, recent advances of the metagenomic highlighted the underestimated gene diversity contained in environmental samples. In order to isolate new valuable cold adapted proteins, Antarctica soil metagenomic libraries were constructed and screened for various activities. Screenings were performed in industrially derived conditions, when feasible, and allowed the isolation of several new lipases/esterases, proteases, amylases, xylanases, … Hence, thorough characterization of the new enzymes is required prior their integration into industrial processes. We will discuss case-studies on three enzymes primarily isolated for the agro-food industry and displaying particular features. [less ▲]
