Bone tissue engineering is a highly studied topic in material science in the recent decades. Basic principles of chemistry and biology along with advanced material science techniques should be used in order to elucidate the parameters which may influence the bone tissue growth on artificial implants. Progress has been made to an advanced level but still there is room for improvements. Especially in case of large bone defects, finding a ‘universal’ replacement implant is difficult. Patient specific data have to be taken in to account to get a good osteointegration. Metal and ceramic implants are commonly tested in case of large bone defects, but a good mimic of natural bone is hard due to various reasons. However fine tuning these materials and combination of these materials are finding good results. Addition of polymer materials in such implants is a recent effective attempt. Different combinations of these materials along with functionalisation using bioactive molecules make the bone tissue engineering nearly perfect. This presentation will discuss about the recent trends in the materials used in bone tissue engineering. [less ▲]

This article focuses on the numerical modeling of nanoindentation tests performed on the hexagonal a phase of Ti-5553 alloy in order to identify its mechanical behavior. The main goal consists in determining the relative strength of the slip modes in the a phase of Ti-5553. This work was performed using an elastoviscoplastic crystal plasticity-based constitutive law. The difficulties in determining the slip systems that can be activated and their corresponding critical resolved shear stresses (CRSS) are discussed. Numerical predictions are compared to experimental nanoindentation curves. [less ▲]

In this study, the Single Point Incremental Forming process (SPIF) is applied on a specific aluminium alloy used in the aerospace industry since this technique and material combine a low specific weight, high strength and stiffness properties and high strain levels. To be able to optimize the process, a model and its material parameters are required. It was noticed that a simple isotropic hardening model was not sufficient to provide an accurate tool force prediction [1]. Therefore an elasto-plastic law with a mixed isotropic-kinematic hardening is investigated. The inverse method coupled with the Finite Element (FE) code: "Lagamine" [2] is used to fit the material data of this complex law. In order to validate the model and the material data, a Line test and a Cone test are used. [less ▲]

This work deals with the modeling of the material flow in Friction Stir Welding (FSW) processes using particle tracing method. For the computation of particle trajectories, three accurate and computationally efficient integration methods are implemented within a FE model for FSW process: the Backward Euler with Sub-stepping (BES), the 4-th order Runge-Kutta (RK4) and the Back and Forth Error Compensation and Correction (BFECC) methods. Firstly, their performance is compared by solving the Zalesak’s disk benchmark. Later, the developed methodology is applied to some FSW problems providing a quantitative 2D and 3D view of the material transport in the process area. The material flow pattern is compared to the experimental evidence. [less ▲]

This paper shows the identification of material parameters for a DC06 IF steel sheet of 0.8 mm by mechanical tests. The experimental equipment used consists of a tensile test machine, a bi-axial test machine able to perform plane-strain and simple shear tests separately or simultaneously and an optical strain gauge. Tensile, plane-strain and simple shear tests were performed at 0°, 45° and 90° from the sheet rolling direction in order to identify Hill 1948 and Hosford 1979 yield criteria. Two identification methods are used: one based on strain measurements (anistropy coefficients) and the other one based on stress measurements (plastic contours). The results confirm that mechanical tests applying other stress-states than tensile are required to obtain accurate material parameters identification. [less ▲]

Phenomenological yield criteria are generally described by many material parameters. A technique to identify these parameters is required to find the best fit to the results of the mechanical tests. The parameter identification by the classical simulated annealing technique is presented in this paper. This algorithm, based on Metropolis’ works [1,2], is a global optimization method that distinguishes between different local optima to reach the global optimum. The anisotropic model used in this study is the one proposed by [3]. To prove the efficiency of the proposed algorithm, the material parameters of Ti6Al4V titanium alloy are identified and compared with those obtained using different identification procedures and the same experimental data.

This article is concerned with the lack of effectiveness of contemporary critical theories in explaining the conditions for social change. These theories, I would argue, continue to rely on a narrow construction of social actors. Indeed from Lukács to Bourdieu or even Habermas, many significant intellectual developments have taken place which continue to be based on one key assumption: that individuals (workers, social actors, etc.) unconsciously reproduce the social structures of capitalism whilst being alienated by them. They accept the conditions enforced on them and no longer seek to rebel against a system which impoverishes not only their work and culture, but also their soul and their creativity. What is more: they ensure the reproduction of the system by seeking to engage in mass consumption at any cost, or by glorifying the dominant values. In this paper I would like to show that today, no new critical perspective has emerged out of this negative representation of the world. Indeed, critical works present ‘man’ living here and now as nothing more than a deeply bastardized being, corrupted, denatured, soiled by a civilizing process. What we have is in effect a social actor who, in Rousseau’s philosophical tradition, has been perverted by a civilizing process informed by modernity or capitalism. This view of social actors rests on a form of disgust towards the world. [less ▲]

by focusing on the concept of world propsed by Boltanski and his pragmatic perspective which in previous work has enabled me to cast a critical eye on new social resistance movements. For Boltanski, what matters is the potential for emancipation to be found in the everyday practices of social actors, directly engaged in the world. He assigns to the sociologist the role of discerning what practices have emancipatory potential because they resist dominant discourses, alter institutional, legitimate accounts of reality which can perhaps lead to social change. There is however a temptation in Boltanski’s work to return to an idealist perspective which shoehorns the emancipatory potential of the everyday practices of social actors into a conceptual and thus intellectual framework: le registre métacritique (ou métapragmatique) auquel seul le sociologue peut avoir accès. Ce registre est unable to give us new perspectives on what might concretely constitute emancipation. In other words, the danger is that even Boltanski’s work will not achieve critical renewal. En lieu et place d’une subjectivité ideale et transcendentale, Boltanski suggère de favoriser un point de vue transcendant sur les pratiques sociales, seul capable de véritablement comprendre la réalité et la façon dont elle nous aliène. Mais ce point de vue est tout aussi idéaliste. Bourdieu ou les théoriciens de Francfort, dans la tradition de l’idéalisme transcendantal kantienne, recherchent le sujet pur qui se cachent sous la conscience pratique des personnes. Boltanski identifie pour sa part un point de vue métapragmatique susceptible de juger les évènements auxquels sont confrontées les personnes de façon plus lucide et plus exhaustive que ces dernières, confinées à un simple point de vue pragmatique imédiat et sans recul. Ce faisant, il se contente de placer le jugement “vrai” au dessus de la conscience des personnes (posture transcendante) plutôt qu’en dessous (posture trenscendantale). Mais dans les deux cas ce jugement vrai apparaît comme une perfection extérieur inaccessible aux personnes en question, ici et maintenant. Therefore I will propose a way out of this impasse by refusing to evaluate emancipation against the test of a (re)turn to an ideal state (whether transcendental or transcendent), but instead embedded in the lived material existence of social actors. Because we cannot be certain where these actions will lead, as sociologists we must accept uncertainty and contingency comme nous l’enseigne Bruno Latour, cet autre auteur français qui se réclame également aujourd’hui du pragmatisme. Mais parce que ce dernier rejette complétement la possibilité de developper encore aujourd’hui une pensée critique, il rend impossible toute reflexion en terme d’émancipation. Or scruter l’emancipation potentielle que recellent ces pratiques est nécessaire si l’on veut évaluer which, amongst them, have the potential to yield social transformation. In sum, in what follows [less ▲]

Following the patrimonialization process of the Mediterranean diet, some gastronomies found themselves involved within a common framework of food traditions. Some regional practices, indicated as representative of national food cultures, were chosen to illustrate a shared heritage that historically took a shape around the Mediterranean sea. This heritage, still concretely performed, needed to be stated and preserved against the globalization of food practices. Institutional and political dynamics, occurring on a transnational level, triggered this process, which is nevertheless not detached from the communities involved. Common people played a fundamental role not only in promoting the patrimonialization process itself, but above all in concretely perpetuating some traditions and in spreading them in the contemporary world. In particular, some different cultural groups that found themselves living a common territory and social context thanks to migration, began dialoguing about their own food traditions, starting from some shared elements. As a consequence, some gastronomies interact through people’s practices and define in relation one to the other. This is the case, among others, of Moroccan and Italian cuisine. Throughout a doctoral research conducted within a group of Moroccan women living in the North of Italy, I collected an amount of ethnographic materials showing how social encounters developed through food. The influence of the patrimonialization process on these encounters made people try to find similarities among different traditional practices or to describe some ways of reinterpreting them in reason of the new context. My presentation will focus on these dynamics, thus proving that the Intangible Cultural Heritage is indeed grounded on materiality, that is, in this case, the concrete performance of food practices and their pragmatic effects on relations among humans.
