Cet article a pour objectif d’ébaucher la construction d’une théorie du détournement de jeux vidéo par les joueurs en passant, non pas par une perspective sociologique ou anthropologique, mais par l’analyse formelle des œuvres dérivées. Pour ce faire, le présent travail prend pour objet une pratique spécifique de détournement, la réalisation de machinimas, et l’aborde à travers un corpus illustratif de vidéos ayant pour point commun d’être issues des jeux Halo. L’analyse détaillée de quatre exemples prototypiques permettra de démontrer, d’une part, l’intime continuité qui existe entre la production de détournements et la pratique même du jeu (continuité qui rend donc artificielle toute tentative de démarcation stricte) et, d’autre part, la nature duelle du détournement de jeux vidéo (due à l’existence de deux aspects à détourner : le game et le play). La mise en parallèle de ces réflexions aboutira, enfin, dans la formalisation d’un modèle cartographiant les multiples formes de détournements. [less ▲]

In this paper, we present a new simulation tool for process engineers. During process design phases, several aspects of machining have to be taken into account. Classical CAD/CAM suites still lack some crucial issues. The goal of the developed tool is to predict the geometric errors of machined surfaces. For classical applications of the automotive domain, form errors are mainly due to the machined part and clamping system flexibility. They are modeled thanks to the FE method. The major peculiarity of the adopted model is to apply numerous load cases. To achieve a low computational coast, we have combined the SAMCEF superelement feature and a specific code to solve the reduced system. This original scheme allows solving efficiently large industrial applications. [less ▲]

The paper presents a simulation tool designed to predict form errors of part surfaces obtained by face milling and turning processes. For these operations, the form error is often due to the flexibility of the workpiece and its supports. The finite element method is adopted to model the part geometry and to compute its deformations. Numerous load cases are required to obtain the form error so that classical resolution methods prove to be inefficient (CPU time, memory and disk space). The paper mainly focuses on the special computation scheme adopted in order to improve the resolution of such an atypical problem. [less ▲]

The synthesis of a series of poly(ethylene oxide)-b-polystyrene copolymers with different block lengths was performed by radical addition fragmentation chain transfer. These amphiphilic copolymers were tested as stabilizers for water-in-oil medium internal phase emulsion (MIPE) templating polymerization and the formation of polyMIPEs with controlled morphology. Aside from the structure of the emulsion stabilizer, several parameters susceptible to influence the size of the cavities and the interconnectivity of the porous monoliths were probed including the choice of the comonomers, treatment of the emulsion by ultrasound, the use of controlled radical polymerization method for the network formation as well as interfacial initiation. Interconnected cellular monoliths were produced. The polymerization of the ultrasonicated water-in-ethylhexylacrylate/divinylbenzene MIPE notably led to near-mesoporous open-cell material. Mechanical properties and specific surface areas of the polyMIPEs were also investigated and discussed. [less ▲]

Introduction: Technological innovations, new regulations, increasing costs of drug productions and new demands are only few key drivers of a projected alternation in the pharmaceutical industry and its underlying business model. Despite significant articles in the press, there is little medical and economic evidence on the rationale driving the transformation from the traditional Research & Development (R&D) model to new alternative business models, such as Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A). The purpose of this review is to understand the macro-economic factors responsible for the revolution of the pharmaceutical business model, by understanding the needs, desires, new behavioral patterns, but also challenges within the industry. Considering these changes will be the key to possessing a competitive advantage over the market players. Areas covered: Existing literature on new macro-economic factors changing the pharmaceutical landscape has been reviewed to present a clear image of the current market environment. Expert commentary: Literature and media sources show that pharmaceutical companies are facing an architectural alteration in their business model, with more M&A deals and collaborations headlining the papers. Although Q1 2016 did show a major slowdown in M&A deals by volume since 2013 (with deal cancellations of Pfizer and Allergan, or the downfall of Valeant) pharmaceutical analysts remain confident that this shortfall was a consequence of the equity market volatility. It seems likely that the shift to an M&A model will become apparent during the remainder of 2016, with deal announcements such as Abbott Laboratories, AbbVie and Sanofi worth USD 45billion [1] showing the appetite of big pharma companies to shift from the fully vertical integrated business model to more horizontal business models.

This paper presents a computationally-effective macro element for predicting the complete shear response of RC deep beams. The element stems from a three-parameter kinematic theory (3PKT) for the shear strength and deformation capacity of deep beams under double curvature. The macro element consists of two rotational springs and one transverse spring to simulate the nonlinear flexural and shear behaviour of deep shear spans. The element is applied to two deep beams tested to shear failure under three-point bending. The results are used to study the effect of unsymmetrical shear failures on the pre- and post-peak behaviour of nominally symmetrical members. It is found that the post-peak response is sensitive to the unloading path of the shear resisting mechanisms as well as to the global roughness of the critical diagonal cracks. Based on these analyses, modifications to the constitutive relationships of the shear mechanisms are proposed, and the macro element is applied to a continuous deep beam. It is shown that the model adequately captures the complete behaviour of the beam, including the redistribution of forces following the shear failure in the critical shear span. [less ▲]

This paper presents a computationally-effective macro element capable of predicting the complete shear response of RC deep beams in analogy with beam elements for slender beams. The element stems from a three-parameter kinematic theory (3PKT) for the shear strength and deformation capacity of deep beams subjected to double curvature. The macro element is composed of two rotational springs and one transverse spring to simulate the nonlinear flexural and shear behaviour of the shear span. The element has two nodes (end sections) with two DOFs per node, which enables it to be easily connected to other elements of the same or different types to model structures with deep beams. The numerical implementation of the element is based on the secant stiffness approach which provides robust convergence properties. Validation studies are performed by using thirteen tests from the literature showing excellent results for the complete shear response. The obtained peak load experimental-to-predicted ratios have an average of 1.10 with a coefficient of variation of 14.2%, while these values for the mid-span deflection are 1.16 and 17.0%. [less ▲]

Cet article présente une approche macro-cinématique permettant de décrire les schémas de déformation avec fissures diagonales des poutres-voile continues. On montre comment une poutre continue formée de deux travées symétriques et supportant deux charges concentrées égales peut être modélisée à partir de seulement deux degrés de liberté. Ce modèle cinématique est combiné avec une théorie cinématique à trois paramètres (3PKT) qui permet de calculer la résistance au cisaillement de poutres-voile, les réactions d’appuis à la ruine et la capacité de déformation de poutres-voile continues. Cette approche a été appliquée à quatorze essais de cisaillement issus de la littérature avec différentes hauteurs de section, différents arrangement de l’armaturage longitudinal et différentes quantités d’armaturage de cisaillement. Les résultats montrent que cette approche macro-cinématique basée sur deux degrés de liberté reproduit correctement les tendances observées dans la capacité ultime au cisaillement des spécimens.

Confronted with increasing problems of financing in health care, some question the relevance of certain interventions of high technicality. Today, the limiting factor for practitioners is not any longer situated at the technical and technological level (the survival of macro replantations is assured in 85-90%) but moves slowly and surely towards the economic level. It is true that medicine has a price and that if a technique is expensive, it should at least be justified at the human level and superior to other less expensive therapeutic options which are available. In this article, we will first focus on the long-term outcome of patients and also on the functional benefit which brings them replantation compared to patients who underwent a regularization of their stump and possibly a reconstruction enabling them to be correctly fitted with a prosthesis.
