Two transmitter masses (2 and 6% of the fish's mass) were selected to examine the interference of tags with the behaviour of Sarpa salpa using a computerized video tracking system based on digital imaging techniques. The study demonstrated that light transmitters had no effect on the behavioural variables studied, and a substantial bias in behaviour is introduced if heavier (6%) tags are used.

In the world of kinetic energy non-lethal weapons (KENLW), the 40mm sponge grenade is a modern projectile that is widely being used. Indeed, it presents different advantages: firstly, thanks to its 40mm diameter, it can be fired with a classic cost-effective grenade launcher. Secondly, its big diameter makes it very unlikely to penetrate the human body, even for impact energy above 100J. Thirdly, it’s a quite accurate projectile for long distance non-lethal impacts, typically between 20m and 50m. These considerations explain why many ammunition manufacturers tend to develop their own 40mm sponge grenade. The 40mm sponge grenade is usually composed of a hard plastic body, with a deformable nose made in foam rubber. The deformation of the nose allows the projectile to absorb energy at impact, making it less lethal for a given velocity than an equivalent stiff projectile. The muzzle velocity is usually between 70m/s and 110m/s, and the mass between 30g and 40g. The muzzle kinetic energy is usually between 120J and 170J. The main issue in the study of this kind of projectiles is its ability to deform at impact. On the one hand, it makes measurements of the impact phenomena more complicated than for a stiff projectile. On the other hand, most of the published studies about KENLW deal with stiff projectiles, and their conclusions may not be applicable for deformable projectiles. Another problem is the wide variety of existing sponge grenades. As the way the projectile deform during the impact can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, we can expect that the impact phenomena and its induced lethality can also vary, even for the same level of energy. The objective of this study is to assess the impact of different sponge grenades with force sensors and a high-speed camera. The 2 main goals are the following: • Different sponge grenades are shot at different velocities on a stiff surface equipped with a force sensor. The force and deformation occurring during the impact are measured for each projectile and then compared. • A relationship between force and deformation during the impact is established, and then compared at different velocities, for different sponge grenades.

Purpose of the study : The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of 3D and 2D vision on performance of novice subjects using da Vinci robotic system. Methods : 224 nurses without any surgical experience were divided into two groups and executed a motor task with the robotic system in 2D for one group and with the robotic system in 3D for the other group. Time to perform the task was recorded. Results : Our data showed significant better time performance in 3D view (24.67 +/- 11.2) than in 2D view (40.26 +/- 17.49, P < 0.001). Conclusions : Our findings emphasized the advantage of 3D vision over 2D view in performing surgical task, encouraging the development of efficient and less expensive 3D systems in order to improve the accuracy of surgical gesture, the resident training and the operating time.

Lignocellulosic substrates constitute a promising alternative resource for the sustainable production of energy (biofuels), biobased products and organic compounds. In the past, the extraction and the valorization of cellulose (into fermentescible glucose) constituted the central axis of lignocellulosic biorefinery processes. Degraded hemicelluloses and lignins were however recovered as side-products with no possibilities of high-added value applications. Within the context of an integrated biorefinery, and for economic reasons, the recovery and the non-energetic transformation of lignins have opened recently new horizons. Lignin is a cross-linked phenolic polymer and is considered as a potential alternative to petrochemical polymers or as a source of antioxidants for cosmetics and food industry, resins, chelating agent... As the final application of lignin is dependent of both extraction process and type of lignocellulosic sources, the development of fast and efficient physicochemical characterization methods is thus a prerequisite to optimize extraction processing conditions. In this study, beech wood particles (Fagus sylvatica L.) collected in the region of Gaume (Belgium) were delignified at atmospheric pressure by a mixture of formic acid/acetic acid/water. The effect of cooking time and temperature was evaluated on delignification and on chemical structure of lignins obtained by precipitation from the black liquor after treatments. To study the delignification, a central composite design and response surface methodology were used for the optimization of two treatments parameters, i.e. time (between 1h30 and 4h30) and temperature (from 87 to 107°C). These two variables were optimized for delignification yield, pulp yield, concentration of degradation products (furfural and hydroxymethylfurfural) and for the amount of residual linkages between lignin constitutive units. On the basis of our results, higher delignification yields were obtained when cooking time and temperature increased. However, for high cooking times and temperatures, pulp yield decreased because hemicelluloses and cellulose were hydrolyzed and the production of furfural and hydroxymethylfurfural was augmented. The structural and physico-chemical features of extracted lignins were investigated with different analytical tools, namely infrared spectrometry, thermogravimetric analysis, size-exclusion chromatography, mono-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR 1H and NMR 13C) and bidimensional NMR (heteronuclear HSQC experiments). The characterization of lignins indicated the occurrence of a repolymerization phenomenon when both cooking time and temperature increased. Indeed, HSQC NMR spectra presented oxidized syringyl units. Otherwise, thermogravimetric analysis and HSQC analysis showed the presence of hemicelluloses in lignin samples from soft treatments (1h30, 87°C). Some linkages between lignin and hemicelluloses were not cleaved under these experimental conditions. [less ▲]

A new Earth system model of intermediate complexity, LOVECLIM, has been developed in order to study long-term future climate changes. It includes an interactive Greenland and Antarctic ice sheet model (AGISM) as well as an oceanic carbon cycle model (LOCH). Those climatic components can have a great impact on future climate. The few studies in recent literature assessing the impact of polar ice sheets on future climate draw very different conclusions, which shows the need for developing such a model. A set of numerical experiments have been performed in order to study the possible perturbations of climate induced by human activities over the next millennia. A particular attention is given to the Greenland ice sheet. In most of the projections, the Greenland ice sheet undergoes a continuous reduction in volume, leading to an almost total disappearance in the most pessimistic scenarios. The impact of the Greenland deglaciation on climate has therefore been assessed through a sensitivity experiment using the scenario SRES A2. The removal of the Greenland ice sheet is responsible for a regional amplification of the global warming inducing a total melt of Arctic sea ice in summer. The freshwater flux from Greenland generates large salinity anomalies in the North Atlantic Ocean that reduce the rate of North Atlantic Deep Water formation, slowing down slightly the oceanic thermohaline circulation.
