The aim of this article is to distinguish the principal changes which have affected Belgian industry since 1970 - changes in structure, on one hand, and in localisation, on the other. When examining the available data, four main facts seem to emerge : the distinct fall in employment in most branches, the difficulties in maintaining the fields most threatened by foreign competition, the problems in developing regions where declining industries are concentrated and the very dear impact of industrial zones in new localisations.

La présente étude réalisée dans le bassin versant de l'Abiergué à Yaoundé (Cameroun) a permis de mettre en exergue les lacunes liées aux services d'accès à l'eau potable et à l'assainissement dans le processus d'urbanisation galopante et non planifiée d'une ville ou d'un pays en développement. Les ménages ont recours au réseau conventionnel (40,3 %), puits (37,1 %), sources (10,1 %), bornes fontaines (9,2 %) et forages (2,4 %) pour couvrir leurs besoins en eau. L'évacuation des excrétas se fait au travers des latrines à fond perdu (58,7 %), latrines à canon (7,7 %), latrines améliorées (5,5 %) et wc modernes avec fosse (24,1 %). Les déchets solides sont évacués suivant divers canaux : bacs publics (49,1 %), enlèvement direct par le concessionnaire (20,2 %), terrains vagues (13,8 %), fosses (6,3 %), rigoles (5,5 %) et service de précollecte (1,7 %). Il incombe en premier aux pouvoirs publics aidés par les acteurs non institutionnels d'y apporter des solutions malgré les pesanteurs d'ordre social, économique et foncier. [less ▲]

In this work, multi-scale methods with strain softening are developed in the contexts of damage modeling for composite laminates and of buckling analyses in cellular materials. First, an anisotropic gradient–enhanced continuum damage model is embedded in a mean–field homogenization (MFH) process for elasto-plastic composites. The homogenization procedure is based on the newly developed incremental secant mean-field homogenization formulation, for which the residual stress and strain states reached in the phases upon a fictitious elastic unloading are considered as starting point to apply the secant method. The mean stress fields in the phases are then computed using isotropic secant tensors, which are naturally used to define the Linear Comparison–Composite The resulting multi– scale model is then applied to study the damage process at the meso–scale of laminates, and in particular the damaging of plies in a composite stack. By using the gradient–enhanced continuum damage model, the problem of losing uniqueness upon strain softening is avoided. Second, an efficient multi–scale finite element framework capturing the buckling instabilities in cellular materials is developed. As a classical multi–scale computational homogenization scheme loses accuracy with the apparition of the macroscopic localizations resulting from the micro–buckling, the second order multi–scale computational homogenization scheme is considered. This second–order computational framework is enhanced with the following novelties so that it can be used for cellular materials. At the microscopic scale, the periodic boundary condition is used because of its efficiency. As the meshes generated from cellular materials exhibit a large void part on the boundaries and are not conforming in general, the classical enforcement based on the matching nodes cannot be applied. A new method based on the polynomial interpolation2 without the requirement of the matching mesh condition on opposite boundaries of the representative volume element (RVE) is developed. Next, in order to solve the underlying macroscopic Mindlin strain gradient continuum of this second–order scheme by the displacement–based finite element framework, the treatment of high order terms is based on the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method to weakly impose the C1-continuity. Finally, as the instability phenomena are considered at both scales of the cellular materials, the path following technique is adopted to solve both the macroscopic and microscopic problems.

Materials used in the aerospace industry, as composite or foamed materials are multiscale in nature. To predict the macroscopic behaviour of structures made of such materials, the micro-scopic responses should also be computed within a nested scheme. This is particularly true when non-linear behaviours are modelled, or when the failure and post failure analyses are sought.

The present work is devoted to an observational multiwavelength study of the non-thermal emission of O-type stars. The non-thermal radio emission is believed to be synchrotron radiation, therefore requiring the existence of a magnetic field as well as of a population of relativistic electrons. The physical circumstances responsible for the acceleration of electrons up to relativistic velocities are not yet completely elucidated, but such an acceleration most probably occurs through the first order Fermi mechanism in the presence of hydrodynamic shocks, also called the Diffusive Shock Acceleration (DSA) mechanism. In the context of massive stars, the shocks responsible for this acceleration process may be intrinsic to their stellar winds, or arise from the collision between stellar winds in binary systems. In addition, the existence of non-thermal emission processes such as inverse Compton scattering suggests the possibility to detect a high-energy counterpart to the non-thermal emission observed in the radio domain. The objectives of this work are to (1) study the impact of the multiplicity on the non-thermal emission, (2) investigate the issue of the non-thermal emission of massive stars in the high-energy domain, and (3) discuss the possibility to constrain physical quantities such as the magnetic field strength through the study of these non-thermal emission processes. We investigate in detail several non-thermal emitting O-type stars, namely HD168112, HD167971, Cyg OB2 #8A, Cyg OB2 #9, and HD15558. For most of these targets, high quality XMM-Newton data are used in order to study their X-ray properties. In most case, the question of the multiplicity is also addressed through optical studies performed on the basis of data obtained with ground-based telescopes. The most intensive study is carried out on the Cyg OB2 region, for which we also obtained and analysed INTEGRAL data, in order to investigate the possible relation between the massive stars in Cyg OB2 and the unidentified EGRET source 3EG J2033+4118. In addition, high quality XMM-Newton data of the close massive binary HD159176 are also studied. Even though this latter target does not belong to the category of non-thermal radio emitters, its study unexpectedly turns out to be crucial in the context of this campaign as it might be the first O + O system likely to be classified as an n! on-thermal X-ray emitter. Considering our observational results, along with results from radio observations mainly coordinated by colleagues from the Royal Observatory of Belgium, we propose a general qualitative schematic view of the non-thermal emission from massive stars. First, it seems that the multiplicity plays a crucial role in the non-thermal emission processes. Second, we have found that the simultaneous detection of non-thermal radiation in the radio and X-ray (below 10.0 keV) domains is unlikely. Non-thermal radio emitters are indeed most probably binaries with periods longer than a few weeks, whilst only close binaries with periods of at most a few days may be non-thermal emitters in the soft X-ray domain. However, such a simultaneous detection is possible if the very hard X-rays or soft gamma-rays are considered, i.e. in a domain where the thermal emission from the colliding winds does not overwhelm the non-thermal emission. Moreover, it appears that the existence of non-thermal X-ray emitters without a non-thermal radio counterpart should be envisaged. Finally, the simultaneous detection of radio and high-energy non-thermal emissions is likely to lead to an indirect method to estimate the local magnetic field strength in the colliding-wind region of massive binaries.

Les dispositifs de mutualisation de main-d’œuvre occupent chaque jour un nombre croissant de travailleurs, en France comme dans les pays voisins : Belgique, Allemagne, Pays-Bas, Autriche, Danemark, etc. Au-delà de la multiplicité des termes mobilisés pour désigner ces dispositifs et de la diversité de leurs modalités organisationnelles et institutionnelles, tous reposent sur un même principe de partage de travailleurs entre plusieurs partenaires. Leur adoption par un nombre sans cesse croissant d’entreprises fait état des nouveaux besoins des employeurs et des travailleurs en matière de flexibilité et de sécurité. Elle traduit également l’ingéniosité des acteurs locaux du marché du travail pour répondre à ces nouveaux besoins. Elle fait émerger enfin un certain nombre de problématiques relative à la coordination et à la régulation de ces nouvelles pratiques, ainsi qu’en termes de gestion des ressources humaines. [less ▲]

Certaines espèces de pucerons et de fourmis entretiennent une relation bénéfique aux deux espèces que l'on nomme mutualisme. Le miellat produit par les pucerons est le ciment de cette relation. Alors que bon nombre d'ennemis naturels de pucerons se servent des odeurs de ces derniers pour localiser leur proie, aucune étude ne s'est actuellement intéressée à la potentialité des fourmis exploratrices à utiliser également les sémiochimiques de pucerons pour localiser ces derniers et établir ou non une relation de mutualisme. Cette étude avait donc pour objectif d'identifier et quantifier les odeurs émises par les pucerons et d'observer si celles-ci influencent le comportement de recherche de nourriture des fourmis exploratrices. Une analyse par SPME (Solid Phase Micro-extraction) a permis de mettre en évidence une différence en composition des odeurs pour du miellat provenant de deux espèces de pucerons, l'une étant myrmécophile (Aphis fabae) et l'autre non (Acyrthosiphon pisum). Les molécules volatiles du miellat d'A. fabae ont également été semi-quantifiées à l'aide de la thermodésorption. Les molécules volatiles principales de ce miellat sont le 3-méthyl-1-butanol, le 2-méthyl-1-butanol, le benzèneéthanol et le 3-méthylbutanal. La seconde partie de cette étude a permis de démontrer que les fourmis perçoivent les odeurs provenant des pucerons et plus particulièrement les odeurs de leur miellat. Des tests olfactométriques réalisés en milieu ouvert ont démontré que les fourmis s'orientent vers une plante infestée de pucerons. Ensuite, des études en milieu fermé ont démontré l'effet attractant du miellat envers les fourmis exploratrices. Celles-ci utilisent donc les sémiochimiques d'origine aphidienne pour s'orienter et rechercher une source de nourriture. Nous avons aussi observé que l'E-β-farnésène (EBF), phéromone d'alarme des pucerons, pouvait également jouer un rôle dans ce comportement de recherche. Enfin, nous avons démontré la capacité des fourmis exploratrices à discriminer une population de A. fabae d'une population de A. pisum sur base des odeurs émises par celles-ci. [less ▲]
