A conforming displacement model for plate bending was presented earlier. It is of intyerest to have also an equilibrium moàdel available in order to generate both upper and lower bounds to plate deflections. The theory of the triangular equilibriium model, which is presented here, takes advantage of oblique coordinates. Il allows to cover transvers loading modes. Because the numerical investigations required adaptibility of the model to a stiffness computer-program, only the elaboration of the stiffness matrix was aimed at. The element can nevertheless be recognised as the Southwell analogue of the plane stress model with quadratic displacement field. As such it can be handled efficiently by a force program. Numerical results show the monotonic convergence of deflections from above for the equilibrium model and from below for the conforming model. The convergence rate, in terms of generalized coordinates, is compâred with that of other plate bending elements. [less ▲]

Multi-Modal freight models are traditionally built following the well known “four steps model” in which generation, distribution, modal-split and assignment are seen as separated modules. An alternative approach, now implemented in some software, is to represent the multi-modal network by means of a “mono-modal” one, in which each particular transport operation (loading or unloading operation, transhipments ...) is represented by a dedicated “virtual link”, that represents a specific operation in the transportation chain. This approach, promoted by several authors, often referenced to as “super networks” or “virtual networks”, is proven to give interesting results, but has the drawback to generate much larger networks than the pure geographic representation of the studied area. It has also some kind of “hidden trap”, linked to transport distances, that will be presented in this paper and that can only be solved using appropriate assignment techniques. This paper presents some results obtained on a large multi-modal network, using different equilibrium assignment algorithms, in order to test their ability to give an appropriate solution to the “distance trap”. It however concludes that the implementation of classical equilibrium assignment techniques leads to solutions that are barely different from the one obtained by a simple all-or-nothing assignment, opening the way to alternative multi-flow solutions.

BACKGROUND: Equine atypical myopathy (AM) is a toxic rhabdomyolysis associated with ingestion of hypoglycin A, derived typically in Europe, from Acer pseudoplatanus tree. Despite the wide distribution of this tree species in the UK, the number of cases reported annually varies, and there has been an apparent increase in prevalence in recent years. Although AM was first recognised in the UK, epidemiological studies have never been conducted focused solely on this country. OBJECTIVES: To describe the spatiotemporal distribution, presentation, treatment and outcome of AM cases reported in the UK. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series. METHODS: British AM cases reported to the atypical myopathy alert website, between 2011 and 2015 were included (n = 224). Data were obtained via standardised epidemiological questionnaires from owners and veterinarians. Factors associated with survival were assessed using logistic regression. RESULTS: Most cases reported were from England (87.9%). Survival was 38.6% (n = 73/189). Clinical factors associated with reduced odds of survival included, hypothermia (odds ratio (OR) 0.18; CI 0.06-0.57; p = 0.01), bladder distension (OR 0.11; CI 0.02-0.59; p = 0.01), tachycardia (OR 0.97; CI 0.94-0.99; p = 0.04) and serum creatine kinase activity >100,000 IU/L (OR 0.17; CI 0.04-0.68; p = 0.01) in the univariable analysis as well as recumbency. The latter was the only sign retained in multivariable analysis (OR = 0.19; CI 0.06-0.62; p = 0.006). Administration of vitamins during the disease was associated with survival (OR 3.75; CI 1.21-11.57; p = 0.02). MAIN LIMITATIONS: Reporting cases to the atypical myopathy alert group is voluntary; therefore, under-reporting will result in underestimation of AM cases; furthermore, direct owner-reporting could have introduced misdiagnosis bias. CONCLUSION: Some areas of the UK reported AM cases more commonly. Clinical signs such as recumbency, rectal temperature, distended bladder and serum CK activity might be useful prognostic indicators though should be considered in the context of the clinical picture. Treatment with vitamins increases survival. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Atypical myopathy (AM) is an acute rhabdomyolysis syndrome that occurs at irregular intervals in grazing equines. An increasing number of outbreaks have been reported in recent years, including some from countries where the disease has not previously been diagnosed. In this review, clinical and other details of outbreaks of AM are analysed to better define its epidemiological profile. Potential aetiologies are discussed, the short clinical course of AM is described and the main biochemical and pathological findings are considered. Recommendations for medical management are suggested, based on a review of clinical reports. Biochemical and histopathological findings have been integrated in order to characterise the physiopathology of AM. There is an ongoing requirement to record new cases of this syndrome, ideally through an epidemiological network. [less ▲]

Equine gammaherpesviruses (cEHV) have been widely studied over the past 45 years and many isolates have been characterised. Despite this, the diagnosis of cEHV infection remains difficult to establish as its clinical manifestations lack specificity, ranging from mild respiratory signs in a small number of animals to outbreaks in large groups of young horses. This review focuses on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and diagnosis of equine herpesvirus (EHV)-2 and -5 infections, as well as on the genetic variation of these viruses. Study of these variations has resulted in hypotheses relating to viral re-infection and re-activation. Interestingly, the viruses were found to contain genetic sequences identical to those of eukaryotic cells which are considered central to the development of viral latency through interfering with host immune and inflammatory responses. Future molecular biological studies will further elucidate the virulence mechanisms of these equine pathogens [less ▲]
