In order to solve fast dynamic problems, an explicit method is the most adapted. But for slower dynamics, an implicit method is more stable. Typical industrial problems are governed by high frequency, e.g. impact, during short time intervals and slower dynamics, e.g. spring-back, during other time intervals. The optimal solution is then to have both implicit algorithm and explicit methods readily available in the same code and to be able to switch automatically from one to the other. Criteria that decide when to shift from a method to another have been developed here. Implicit balanced restarting conditions that annihilate numerical oscillations resulting for an explicit calculation are also proposed. [less ▲]

This paper presents an incremental-secant mean- field homogenization (MFH) procedure for composites made of elasto-plastic constituents exhibiting damage. During the damaging process of one phase, the proposed method can account for the resulting unloading of the other phase, ensuring an accurate prediction of the scheme. When strain softening of materials is involved, classical fi nite element formulations lose solution uniqueness and face the strain localization problem. To avoid this issue the model is formulated in a so-called implicit gradient-enhanced approach, with a view toward macro-scale simulations. The method is then used to predict the behavior of composites whose matrix phases exhibit strain softening, and is shown to be accurate compared to unit cell simulations and experimental results. Then the convergence of the method upon strain softening, with respect to the mesh size, is demonstrated on a notched composite ply. Finally, applications consisting in a stacking plate, successively without and with a hole, are given as illustrations of the possibility of the method to be used in a multiscale framework. [less ▲]

Dual-process theories of recognition posit that perceptual fluency contributes to both familiarity-based explicit recognition and perceptual priming. However, the priming-without-recognition dissociation, as observed through the intact mere exposure effect and impaired recognition in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), might indicate that familiarity and perceptual priming are functionally distinct. This study investigated whether the AD patients' processing strategies at testing may explain this priming-without-recognition dissociation. First, we replicated the priming-without-recognition effect in 16 patients who exhibited intact exposure effects despite null recognition. Second, we showed that, under identical conditions, inducing a holistic processing strategy during recognition testing increased AD patients' recognition--performance was similar for AD patients and healthy control participants. Furthermore, prompting analytic processing during both priming and recognition tasks decreased AD patients' performance in both tasks. These findings suggest that the extent to which AD patients use perceptual fluency in priming and recognition tasks is contingent on their processing approach. The choice of processing strategy may depend on how difficult patients perceive the task to be. [less ▲]

In Ancient Greek, an impolite order can be uttered by means of a negative interrogative in the future tense (οκ ρες ‘Won’t you talk?’). The aim of this paper is to understand to what extent this type of utterance is impolite, and to explain how such a conventional and indirect order can frequently take on an impolite meaning. For this purpose, data are taken from classical drama (Aristophanes’ and Euripides’ plays). Drawing on criteria put forward by recent work on impoliteness, this study provides an accurate description of uses in discourse, in order to establish that this conventional order is never used with a polite intention, but regularly as an impolite order. Impoliteness can be explained by the locutionary form which gives an orientation to the interpretation of the utterance: an indirect and conventional expression cannot be polite if the locutionary meaning is opposed to it.

Périodique scientifique - The authors take as starting point the success of the Corporate Social Responsibility “label”, in order to analyse such concept within the EU context. As the EU approach to CSR follows closely the path tracked by the UN, special attention will be given to the commitments undertaken by the European Commission in its 2011 Communication, which led to the recent adoption of EU-endorsed Guidelines on Business and Human Rights; such initiatives will also be examined against the Commission’s policy on fundamental rights. Some concrete examples drawn from parliamentary questions on matters related to CSR, will help illustrate the role of the European Parliament in shaping a EU position on such issues, as well as give some insights into the developments in the EU policy on CSR.

Coula edulis is a non-timber forest tree species that provides edible fruits for local people. However, its economical importance has never been quantified. The present study aimed to identify the fate of stocks of harvested C. edulis fruits in Gabonese villages, emphasizing the social impact and economic income generated by this activity. Our investigations revealed that C. edulis fruits are predominantly utilized for own subsistence, since trading proportion concerned less than 20% of collected fruits. The average income from trade during the harvest period (two months) varied from € 1.7 to € 3.3 per household, depending on the proximity of the market (local or urban). The economical potential of C. edulis fruits could be improved if a sustainable production strategy through domestication processes and agroforestry practices was developed. Such a strategy may also contribute to the increase of the local demand of C. edulis fruits, assuming that a better diffusion was also carried out. [less ▲]

S’il est unanimement admis que le traitement de l’hypertension artérielle améliore le pronostic cardiovasculaire des patients qui en sont atteints, force est de constater que la moitié des patients traités n’ont pas leur pression artérielle normalisée. Un des facteurs responsables de ce relatif échec est la mauvaise adhésion au traitement (non médicamenteux et pharmacologique). Ce problème d’observance est multifactoriel. Interviennent le patient, sa maladie, son traitement et l’environnement thérapeutique où la relation médecin-malade joue un grand rôle. Pour améliorer l’observance, comme d’ailleurs la persistance du traitement, il faut d’abord y penser. Le dialogue avec le patient sur l’observance doit être mené à chaque consultation. Une excellente relation médecin-patient, une éducation sur l’hypertension, ses risques et les moyens d’éviter les complications, le choix de schémas de traitement bien tolérés, simplifiés et introduits progressivement, la recherche et la limitation des effets secondaires générés, le partenariat de la famille et du pharmacien dans la prise en charge, la stimulation de l’automesure de la pression artérielle par le patient sont autant de pistes importantes pour améliorer ce paramètre. Ceci permettrait, à coup sûr, de réduire les complications cardiovasculaires liées à l’hypertension et le coût pour la société. [less ▲]
