Despite prophylactic measures, mainly including vaccination programs and management measures, respiratory disease remains the major cause of economic losses in the bovine species. Choice of treatment is currently mainly based on the clinicians' personal experience. A theoretical method has been proposed earlier to classify this syndrome into four grades of severity : Grade 1, subclinical disease (no treatment); Grade 2, compensated clinical disease (antibiotics only); Grade 3, noncompensated clinical disease (antibiotics + anti inflammatory drugs); and Grade 4, irreversible clinical disease (no treatment). In order to realize this theoretical classification under field conditions, three techniques, each one evaluating the oxygen transport chain at a différent level, have been studied and validated, i.e. pulse oximetry, lactate dosage and the lobeline test. Afterwards, measurements were performed on calves suffering from acute respiratory disease and a preliminary classification was established. This novel approach could orientate and economize therapeutic strategies in bovine respiratory disease. [less ▲]

The aim of this current study was to perform a preliminary clinical assessment of efficacy and safety of a biodegradable gentamicin-loaded monoolein gel. An open single dose, one treatment study including 19 patients with chronic osteomyelitis caused by a microorganism sensitive to gentamicin was conducted. After surgical curettage of the infected bone, the dead space was filled in with the gentamicin-loaded monoolein gel. To prevent post-operative septicaemia, a systemic antibiotherapy was prescribed for 3 days following the operation. Clinical, biological and radiological follow-up was performed to assess the efficacy and the safety of the treatment. After a follow-up period ranging from 2 to 12 months, all 19 patients included in the study felt well. Eighteen patients recovered from chronic osteomyelitis without adverse events. The wound of one patient whose bone was exposed did not scar over after 10 months. However, it was no longer infected. In conclusion, gentamicin-loaded monoolein gel was efficacious in treating chronic osteomyelitis without side-effects. [less ▲]

Due to the paucity of suitable habitat, hippos are very rare in the Congo Bassin. Compared to East-African populations, Central African populations of hippos have been less studied. Information found in the literature regarding the animal’s basic ecology is limited. This study focuses on the description of the diet of an isolated hippo population in Loango National Park (Gabon), comparing faecal analysis with a reference collection ofherbaceous species from the savannas. The effectiveness of using faecal analysis versus using the floristic description of hippos’ pastures was demonstrated. The most frequent herbaceous species identified in faeces samples were Paspalum vaginatum, Axonopus compressus, Stenotaphrum secundatum (Poaceae) and Desmodium triflorum (Fabaceae). The voluntary consumption of a dicotyledonous species (Desmodium triflorum) is novel for this species. [less ▲]

This report deals with the preliminary design of a twin-cylinder engine. The goal of the work is not to make the detailed design of the engine but to draw the main characteristics of each kind of engine and to investigate which configuration of twin-cylinder engine matches in the best way to given requirements. A simple model is developed from the motion equations of the rotating and oscillating parts of piston engine. This model allows calculating the values of the inertia forces and moments for each angular position of the crankshaft. Different configurations of single-cylinder and twin-cylinder engines (including in-line or boxer, in-phase or out-of-phase motion of the piston) are considered. All of these configurations are characterized by their own set of forces and moments. As the free forces and moments are responsible for engine vibrations and thus vibrations of the vehicle and its passengers, a set of balancing solutions (modification of the crankshaft, addition of first or second order balance shafts) is considered to reduce these loads. This is the balancing of the engine. Great reductions of forces and moments can be obtained with more or less complex solutions. From a design point of view, the next step is to determine what level of vibration is acceptable and which solutions permit to reach this level. A model of a classical four-cylinder engine is made in order to serve as a reference for the comparison of the different configurations of twin-cylinder engine. In addition to the inertia forces, the combustion of the fuel inside the cylinder produces also forces and moments in the engine. To estimate the total forces and moments created by the engine, the gas pressure force is calculated for each configuration of the engine. The last step of this preliminary design consists in investigating the influence of design parameters that can impact the balancing of the engine. A sensitivity analysis is made with different design parameters of the engine (i.e. the mass of the piston, the mass and length of the connecting rod…) This analysis permits to know, depending of the configuration of the engine, which characteristics will require a greater attention during the design phases.

Most of HEV are built using existing engines. These engines have been developed for conventional car and are not especially tailored for HEV. The objectives of this work are to establish general requirements placed on an ICE for a HEV application, to draw the main characteristics of the engine and to find the best configuration of twin-cylinder ICE to motorize an HEV. The twin-cylinder engine offer interesting perspectives in the field of HEV thanks to its small size, low weight and low cost. [less ▲]
