Tailor's results on machining optimization always assume that the power of the machine tool is not a limitation. However, this not necessarily true, specially in the case of rough machining, where Taylorian optima are out of the power range of the machine. In this paper, an algorithm is proposed, where the machine capacity is the first consideration. The obtained result is then corrected in view of the tool life. [less ▲]

This clinical case underlines the importance of a multidisciplinary approach, prosthetic and orthodontic, for the achievement of an oral rehabilitation treatment plan. Preliminary orthodontic treatment has significantly improved, the position of some natural teeth, which can serve or not as a prosthetic abutment. This has produced a direct prosthetic benefit by limiting tissue reduction for preparation and by giving a better biomechanical and functional context to the restoration.Thus, after an orthodontic treatment step, lasting a year and a half, using both removable appliance and fixed appliance, prosthetic rehabilitation was possible. This included a fixed prosthesis and a removable prosthesis that gave a very satisfying an esthetic result and good masticatory function. [less ▲]

Most newts experience both terrestrial and aquatic environments during their adult life. A large number of studies explored the feeding habits in the aquatic habitat while very few focused on the terrestrial component and none compared the two systems within a single population. The aim of this study was to find out which foraging tactic is the most successful in terms of energy intake. To this end, I analysed the feeding habits of metamorphosed juveniles in the Alpine newt inhabiting a Greek alpine lake and its surrounding lands. The diet reflected the range of prey available in the two habitats, but invertebrates, which fell on the water surface, were also ingested by aquatic newts. These two lifestyles had different energy outcomes because the highest number of terrestrial invertebrates taken in the terrestrial habitat than in the aquatic one provided higher energy gains to terrestrial juveniles. However, different mortality rates between habitats (highest probability of freezing risk on high-elevated lands than in deep waters) and an expected lower energy intake on land when air temperature is low could explain the persistence of the aquatic foraging tactic in the population.

Facility location problems aim at optimally locating facilities like plants, warehouses, convenience stores, shopping malls etc. They can have different objectives such as maximizing the profit gained from the customers or minimizing the costs of locating facilities and serving the customers. In this thesis, we mainly focus on competitive facility location problems which constitute a special family. In a competitive facility location problem, a firm or franchise is concerned with installing new facilities to serve customers in a market where existing facilities with known locations and attractiveness levels compete for increasing their market share and profit. We can classify these problems into two groups: those with non-reactive competition and those with reactive competition. Three different types of competitive facility location models are proposed in order to determine the locations and attractiveness levels of the new facilities to maximize the profit in this thesis. The first one belongs to the former class, where the last two models fall into the latter one. We formulate the first one as a mixed-integer nonlinear programming problem and propose three methods for its solution: a Lagrangean heuristic, a branch-and-bound method with Lagrangean relaxation, and a branch-and-bound method with nonlinear programming relaxation. The computational results obtained on a set of problem instances show that the branch-and-bound method using nonlinear programming relaxation is the most efficient and accurate solution method in order to solve the proposed problem. We consider next an extension of this model by relaxing the assumption that the competitor in the market does not react to the opening of new facilities. In other words, the competitor can react by adjusting the attractiveness levels of its existing facilities with the objective of maximizing its own profit. To this end, a bilevel mixed-integer nonlinear programming model is formulated. We transform this bilevel model into an equivalent one-level mixed-integer nonlinear program and solve it by a global optimization method. For this problem, we also consider a scenario in which the new entrant firm ignores the reaction of the competitor. The experimental results indicate that anticipating the competitor's reaction by including this into his optimization problem increases the profit of the new entrant firm, whereas the competitor's profit is decreased. The last competitive facility location model relaxes the limitation about the competitor's reaction: now the competitor can also open new facilities, close existing ones and/or adjust their attractiveness. This also formulates a bilevel mixed-integer nonlinear programming problem which we try to solve by combining tabu search with global optimization algorithms. We develop three different tabu search methods and the computational results on a set of problem instances for comparing the performance of the solution methods show that the third tabu search method is the most accurate one, while the second tabu search method is the most efficient solution procedure. Finally, we consider a different facility location problem which takes the customer preferences into account. The facilities are not necessarily identical and customers visit different types of facilities according to some given probability distribution and the maximum distance which they are willing to travel. We formulate a binary linear programming problem and solve it by three procedures that include a Lagrangean heuristic whose solution is improved further using a local search method. Based on the experimental results carried out on a set of problem instances the third solution method is the most efficient one. However, a statistical analysis on the quality of the solutions states that there is no significant difference between the three solution procedures. [less ▲]

The OptiMIR project aims to improve the sustainability of the dairy sector by providing milk producers with new tools enabling them to manage the cow’s fertility, feeding, health, pollutants, and milk quality. Data provided by milk recording organizations and recorded in different environments will be pooled and used to identify the links between animal status and milk composition changes. The entire MIR milk spectrum will be used as indicator of the cows’ status in order to 1) reduce production costs 2) give an access to high added value market and 3) reduce the environmental impact. OptiMIR is a 5 years project involving 5 research units, 11 milk recording organizations from Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, and United Kingdom. The project is co-financed by INTERREG IVB program. [less ▲]

Les essais ont été menés sur un projet de quatre ans et ont testé cinq cultures légumières pour optimiser la fertilisation azotée sous irrigation avec des eaux usées. Le site expérimental était localisé dans le périmètre irrigué développé autour de l’usine de production de légumes surgelés, Hesbaye Frost. Dépendant de la rotation effectuée par le fermier, dont une partie du champ était sous expérimentation, quatre cultures légumières ont été testées (épinard, haricot, carotte et fève) ainsi qu’une céréale (froment d’hiver). Suite à la mise en place des essais et aux conditions climatiques, les cultures d’épinard en 1999 et de froment en 2000 n’ont pas testé le facteur irrigation. Les facteurs d’expérimentation étaient trois niveaux de fertilisation azotée différents par rapport à un témoin ne recevant pas d’azote minéral complémentaire et un apport ou non d’eaux usées par irrigation. L’impact de ces facteurs a été mesuré sur les rendements et les reliquats azotés dans le sol après culture. Pour les trois cultures légumières de haricot, carotte et fève qui ont pu être irriguées, les rendements ont toujours été statistiquement supérieurs lorsqu’il y avait un apport d’eau complémentaire par irrigation avec les eaux usées. Le facteur fumure a favorablement amélioré les rendements de l’épinard et du haricot, ainsi que le taux de protéines des céréales. Par contre, les parcelles de carotte et de fève qui n’avaient reçu aucune fumure azotée pendant respectivement trois et quatre années consécutives et qui n’ont pas reçu de fertilisation pour leur culture, n’ont pas donné des rendements statistiquement inférieurs. Le facteur fumure, quel que soit le niveau de fertilisation, n’a pas donné des rendements différents pour ces deux cultures. Les reliquats azotés dans le sol après récolte sont restés acceptables et normaux tant que la fertilisation recommandée n’était pas dépassée ; la fertilisation maximale testée, outrepassant les conseils de fumure raisonnée, a systématiquement laissé des reliquats en azote minéral dans le sol en quantité néfaste pour l’environnement. Ces résidus azotés principalement localisés dans les horizons supérieurs pouvaient être considérés comme récupérables par une culture intermédiaire piège à nitrate (CIPAN), pour autant que cette dernière soit installée dès la fin de l’été, l’automne étant considéré comme trop tardif pour avoir une influence sur la récupération de l’azote. Quel que soit le niveau de fertilisation, les reliquats azotés étaient importants pour la culture de fève par un phénomène de minéralisation en surface, dus aux conditions climatiques et à la charge en azote minéral apporté par les eaux usées utilisées pour l’irrigation. Les reliquats azotés en conditions de non-irrigation sont significativement plus importants que sous irrigation. L’irrigation permet une meilleure solubilisation de l’azote, ce qui facilite son assimilation par la culture en place et réduit les quantités résiduelles dans le sol après récolte. [less ▲]

De nos jours, décider comment remplir des conteneurs avec des colis est une activité courante aussi bien dans le domaine du transport routier qu’aérien. Ce type de question est apparentée aux problèmes de Bin-Packing(BPP) en recherche opérationnelle. En termes économiques, ces opérations doivent mener à une solution qui satisfait de nombreuses contraintes physiques, être réalisées rapidement et de sorte à maximiser certains critères. Typiquement, on tentera de charger un maximum de colis dans un minimum de conteneurs pour réduire les coûts. [less ▲]

The European Pharmacopoeia describes a liquid chromatography (LC) method for the quantification of sulindac, using a quaternary mobile phase including chloroform and with a rather long run time. In the present study, a new method using a short sub-2μm column, which can be used on a classical HPLC system, was developed. The new LC conditions (without chloroform) were optimised by means of a new methodology based on design of experiments in order to obtain an optimal separation. Four factors were studied: the duration of the initial isocratic step, the percentage of organic modifier at the beginning of the gradient, the percentage of organic modifier at the end of the gradient and the gradient time. The optimal condition allows the separation of sulindac and of its 3 related impurities in six minutes instead of 18 min. Finally, the method was successfully validated using an accuracy profile approach in order to demonstrate its ability to accurately quantify these compounds. [less ▲]
