This paper will present different ways to minimize cost in shipbuilding industry. Amongst them we have the production simulation methods, the cost assessment methods and the optimization methods. Nowadays, cost assessment is a key task of an integrated ship design. The various methods to estimate the production cost differ with the known information (input data). The less information is detailed, the earlier a method can be used in the design process. The more information is used, the better we can assess the differences between design alternatives. The methods presented here and the “design for production” concept promise to increase the productivity trough the following points: a more accurate cost estimation, an improvement in the deadlines planning and the production schedule, a progress in distribution of the workload between the various production workshops, a better knowledge of the individual costs that will permit to reduce the global cost. In order to illustrate our work, we present in this paper three methods to decrease the global cost of a ship. [less ▲]

Thin metallic films are used as passband filters in space telescopes operating in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV). Because of their thinness, typically 100 to 200nm, they are very sensitive to static pressure differentials and to mechanic and acoustic vibrations. Therefore, they are difficult to manage in all phases of a space program, from manufacturing to vacuum testing to launch. A common solution to this problem is to reinforce them with fine mesh grids with pitches ranging from a few hundred micrometers to a few millimeters. Depending on their location in the optical path, the main effect of these periodic grids is either to diffract light or to cast penumbral shadows on the focal plane. In this paper, we analyze the formation of the shadow modulation patterns and derive design rules to minimize their amplitude. The minimization principle is illustrated by an application to a solar EUV telescope. [less ▲]

Inversion of time-lapse resistivity data allows obtaining ‘snapshots’ of changes occurring in monitored systems for applications such as aquifer storage, site remediation or tracer tests. Based on these snapshots, one can infer qualitative information on the location and morphology of changes occurring in the subsurface but also quantitative estimates on the degree of changes in certain property such as temperature or total dissolved solid content. Analysis of these changes can provide direct insight into flow and transport processes and controlling parameters. However, the reliability of the analysis is dependent on survey geometry, measurement schemes, data error, or regularization. Except regularization, survey design parameters may be optimized prior to the monitoring survey. Regularization, on the other hand, may be chosen depending on available information collected during the monitoring. Common approaches consider smoothing model changes both in space and/or time. We here propose to use two alternative regularization approaches which may be better suited to invert time-lapse data. The first approach is the minimum gradient support (MGS) regularization, which focus the changes in tomograms snapshots. MGS will limit the occurrences of changes in electrical resistivity but will also restrict the variations of these changes inside the different zones. The second approach is based on geostatistics and requires first to derive variogram parameters for the model changes. In this contribution, we demonstrate the benefits and limitations of these regularization approaches to time-lapse data on numerical benchmarks and three case studies. [less ▲]

The Katangan copper-cobalt deposits (Democratic Republic of Congo) are part of the Central African Copperbelt, one of the world’s greatest metallogenic province. The ore comes to the surface in a series of hills isolated in the miombo woodland. These unique ecosystems present high metals concentration levels where a specific vegetation develops. Flora comprises more than 600 species from which 30 are endemics. Due to the recent revival of mining activities in the region, copper plant communities of Katanga and their associated flora are now critically threatened. Tenke Fungurume Mining sarl (TFM), an important mining company operating in Katanga, has developed a Biological Diversity Action Plan (BDAP) to conserve copper-cobalt flora and mitigate potential species extinction risk. One of the most original BDAP tasks is an ecosystem reconstruction experiment that should preserve plant communities representative of the diversity found on the exploited hill and to provide the plant material for further post-exploitation restoration. From December 2007 to April 2009, full vegetation blocks were translocated with their soil mat on an adequate mineral substrate of 1500m². Since 2008, the artificial ecosystem is monitored every year. Three communities were successfully recreated. A total of 125 species were found in the ecosystem which represents half of the original species richness. Population size decreased for only 12 out of 32 surveyed species. This first experience shows that ecosystem reconstruction is successful and may be used as a strategy to conserve copper-cobalt plant communities in their habitat. [less ▲]

Many people believe that sexual orientation (homosexuality vs. heterosexuality) is determined by education and social constraints. There are, however, a large number of studies indicating that prenatal factors have an important influence on this critical feature of human sexuality. Sexual orientation is a sexually differentiated trait (over 90% of men are attracted to women and vice versa). In animals and men, many sexually differentiated characteristics are organized during early life by sex steroids, and one can wonder whether the same mechanism also affects human sexual orientation. Two types of evidence support this notion. First, multiple sexually differentiated behavioral, physiological, or even morphological traits are significantly different in homosexual and heterosexual populations. Because some of these traits are known to be organized by prenatal steroids, including testosterone, these differences suggest that homosexual subjects were, on average, exposed to atypical endocrine conditions during development. Second, clinical conditions associated with significant endocrine changes during embryonic life often result in an increased incidence of homosexuality. It seems therefore that the prenatal endocrine environment has a significant influence on human sexual orientation but a large fraction of the variance in this behavioral characteristic remains unexplained to date. Genetic differences affecting behavior either in a direct manner or by changing embryonic hormone secretion or action may also be involved. How these biological prenatal factors interact with postnatal social factors to determine life-long sexual orientation remains to be determined. [less ▲]

Ce ministère est replacé dans la perspective du « fait missionnaire » considéré comme « événement politique » et en ce sens il apparaît que la « mission » demeure un réservoir de représentations imaginaires, un modèle organisationnel, une filière de socialisation élitaire aussi bien que populaire, un acteur économique, un lieu de luttes sociales et matérielles.
