Many CAD tools already allow to create and manipulate directly ideas in a digital way. However, designers still use the pen and paper technique during the early design phase of their projects. Indeed, existing CAD tools con-straint the creative work. There is a need for a sponta-neous human computer interaction in design computing. In order to answer to this need, we develop an integrated aided design tool based on an Virtual Desktop. The de-signer sits in front of a classical desktop where s/he can create and manipulate drawings and generated models. The paper relates the observations made from an ex-periment about the use of the Virtual Desktop by a de-signer. That experiment demonstrates that the immersive aspect of our system interface modifies the relation exist-ing between the designer and his/her model and, this way, its generates a new type of augmented interaction.

Memory for times of past events depends on direct impressions of the temporal “distances” of the events in the past and the reconstruction of temporal “locations. Two studies shed light on the possible neurological basis of location-based processes. In an ERP study, adults performed tasks thought to bias subjects to use distance or location processes. Late frontal activity was specifically linked to location-based processes. In another study using the same tasks, aging was found to disrupt location-based processes more than distance-based processes. Age-related differences in the use of location-based processes were mediated by speed of processing and by working-memory capacities. [less ▲]

A 1D coupled physical-biogeochemical model has been built to study the pelagic food web of the Ligurian Sea (NW Mediterranean Sea). The physical model is the turbulent closure model (version 1D) developed at the GHER (University of Liège, Belgium). The ecosystem model contains nineteen state variables describing the carbon and nitrogen cycles of the pelagic food web. Silicate is considered as a potential limiting nutrient of diatoms’ growth. The aggregation model described in Kriest and Evans (2000) is used to evaluate the sinking rate of particulate detritus. The model is forced at the air-sea interface by the METEO France meteorological data. The DYFAMED time series data of year 2000 are used to calibrate and validate the biological model (Raick et al., 2005). By combining the numerical model and the available observations, data assimilation techniques are useful to improve the state estimation of the ocean. A Singular Fixed Extended Kalman filter (Pham et al., 1998) has been implemented in this way. Twin experiments are first performed to choose the suitable experimental protocol, which is then applied to perform real data assimilation experiments using DYFAMED data (Raick et al., submitted). To be coupled in a 3D environment, the ecosystem model is too complex. Our ongoing work is to perform a simplification, by studying simplified structures in comparison with the original ecosystem model. The advantage of deriving a simplified model from the complex one, is that we would be able to identify the most important processes of the Ligurian Sea ecosystem. [less ▲]

The optimal location of a facility is a rather complex task that was already studied many times. Several optimal location problems and solution exists, but only a few can be applied to the location of multimodal freight terminals. Among the possible approaches, if theoretical solutions can be found in the literature, the computational complexity of the proposed methods make them impossible to be applied to real world large geographical networks. Indeed, many of them are based on linear programming, for which the number of constraints drastically increases with the number of terminals to take into account. This paper identifies the possible existing theoretical exact solutions and the framework of a new approach, in which the initial set of potential terminals is computed by means of the results obtained by the assignment of the flows of commodities on the trans-European network [less ▲]

In this paper we study the concept of electric power system control, when the responsibility for controlling the entire system is shared by agents controlling their assigned areas. Within this framework, we suggest to study the dynamics created by the interactions of agents. In particular, we discuss the relation that exists between the information available to the different agents and their optimisation objective, and the performance of the overall power system. Simulations results, carried out on a 39-node power system voltage control problem, are provided and analyzed. They highlight, among others, the sub-optimal performance level attained by the system when the different agents exchange information about their area dynamics without sharing a common control objective.

Title Inside-out transobturator vaginal tape (TVT-O): One-year results of a prospective study Introduction and Objectives The aim of this study was to prospectively assess the efficacy of a new surgical technique, the inside-out transobturator vaginal tape (TVT-O), for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Study design, materials and methods From 03/2003 through 10/2003, a TVT-O tape was inserted in 83 consecutive patients with clinical evidence of SUI. Preoperative evaluation included complete history, physical examination, urodynamics, urine analysis, and cystoscopy. None of the patients presented the following exclusion criteria: post-void residual (PVR) >100 cc, detrusor overactivity or acontractility, pregnancy, neurological pathology, active urinary or vaginal infection, age >85 years, negative stress test, and maximum cystometric capacity <300 mL. Post-operative evaluation was carried out using symptom scoring and quality of life (QoL) questionnaires, visual analog scales, physical examination, uroflowmetry, and PVR measurement. Cure was defined as no leakage based on both symptom scale scoring and physical examination. Improvement was defined as ≥50% decrease in symptoms based on the questionnaire’s results. Results Mean age of the patients was 61 years. The TVT-O procedure was associated with pelvic organ prolapse cure in 15 patients (18%). Follow-up time was ≥12 months in all women (mean = 13.6); 3 patients were lost to follow-up. No significant blood loss (≥100 cc), vaginal wall, urethral, or bladder perforation was encountered. No hematoma, vaginal or urethral erosion, or neurological complication was observed. No patient complained of persistent pain. At the latest follow-up visit, max flow rate was ≥10 mL/sec and PVR was <100 cc in 90% and 94% patients, respectively. Two patients underwent an immediate tape release procedure while the tape was sectioned in 2 other patients for retention and/or urgency associated with obstruction. Sixty eight patients (85%) were cured of their SUI while 9 patients (11%) were improved. Urgency questionnaire’s results showed that 5 (5/46) patients developed de novo urgency. Twenty and 14 out of the 34 patients with preoperative urge symptoms reported either disappearance or no change of urgency, respectively. Obstruction symptoms appeared or worsened in 3 patients and were unchanged or decreased in all other patients. Analysis of the incontinence visual analog and QoL scale scores showed that the majority of patients reported disappearance of incontinence together with significant improvement of their QoL. Conclusions The one-year results of this study suggest that TVT-O is associated with a low incidence of peri- and post-operative complications and high objective and subjective SUI cure rates.

The shoot apical meristem (SAM) of Sinapis alba can be switched from vegetative to reproductive fate by exposure of 2-month old plants to a single long day (LD). Floral transition then occurs in good synchrony within a population, and a number of biochemical, cellular, and morphological changes have been described. Our aim is to integrate gene expression patterns into this timing. We report here the analysis of SaLFY, orthologous to the floral meristem identity gene LEAFY of Arabidopsis. Materials and Methods: Plants of Sinapis were grown in 8-h shorts days for two months before being induced to flower by one 22-h LD. Shoot apices were harvested 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 and 80h after start of the LD, and prepared for in situ hybridization (Melzer et al., 1999). Results and Conclusions: As expected, the expression of SaLFY was very strong in flower primordia. More surprisingly, SaLFY was expressed well before the initiation of flowers. First, a strong signal was detected in the tip of young leaf primordia of vegetative plants. Secondly, SaLFY was transiently expressed in the SAM of induced plants, from 32h after the start of the LD, when cell proliferation increased. The signal formed, in transverse sections, a discontinuous ring with activation where last leaves were to be initiated. Interestingly, this activation in the SAM matched in time and space early growth changes previously described during the transition to flowering, namely an increase of leaf primordia growth and an acceleration of last leaf initiation (Bernier, 1997), suggesting that SaLFY may have dual functions in fate specification during the floral transition of the SAM.

Using the fluid dynamic paradigm, we study acoustic solitons in a dusty plasma with two ion temperatures, using a polytropic equation of state. On the ion-acoustic timescale we consider a four-component plasma, with super-hot electrons and massive dust grains. We find existence regimes for both positive and negative potential solitons and double layers. For dust-acoustic solitons, we consider a three-component plasma, with no free electrons, and "super-hot" hot ions. This model supports both positive and negative potential solitons, unlike a dust-ion-electron plasma, that allows only negative solitons [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.

This work presents a general framework for constitutive viscoelastic models in the finite deformation regime. The approach is qualified as variational since the constitutive updates consist of a minimization problem within each load increment. The set of internal variables is strain-based and uses a multiplicative decomposition of strain in elastic and viscous components. Spectral decomposition is explored in order to accommodate, into analytically tractable expressions, a wide set of specific models. Moreover, it is shown that, through appropriate choices of the constitutive potentials, the proposed formulation is able to reproduce results obtained elsewhere in the literature. Finally, numerical examples are included to illustrate the characteristics of the present formulation. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

An abstract numeration system is a triple S = (L, Sigma, <) where (Z, <) is a totally ordered alphabet and L a regular language over Z; the associated numeration is defined as follows: by enumerating the words of the regular language L over Z with respect to the induced genealogical ordering, one obtains a one-to-one correspondence between N and L. Furthermore, when the language L is assumed to be exponential, real numbers can also be expanded. The aim of the present paper is to associate with S a self-replicating multiple tiling of athe space, under the following assumption: the adjacency matrix of the trimmed minimal automaton recognizing L is primitive with a dominant eigenvalue being a Pisot unit. This construction generalizes the classical constructions performed for Rauzy fractals associated with Pisot substitutions [16], and for central tiles associated with a Pisot beta-numeration [23].

We consider random matrix models for the thermodynamic competition between chiral symmetry breaking and diquark condensation in QCD at finite temperature and finite baryon density. The models produce mean field phase diagrams whose topology depends solely on the global symmetries of the theory. We discuss the block structure of the interactions that is imposed by chiral, spin, and color degrees of freedom and comment on the treatment of density and temperature effects. Extension of the coupling parameters to a larger class of theories allows us to investigate the robustness of the phase topology with respect to variations in the dynamics of the interactions. We briefly study the phase structure as a function of coupling parameters and the number of colors. [less ▲]

For an underground storage of nuclear waste, it is necessary to minimize the excavation damage zone (EDZ) that could be a higher permeability zone. This paper deals with the FE modelling of the EDZ extent during tunnelling. A Drucker – Prager law with cohesion strain softening is used. Results show a shear banding around the excavation. Its extent and the tunnel convergence are highly dependent on the hydraulic boundary condition within the tunnel (imposed pore pressure – suction or unilateral flow condition). [less ▲]

La recherche ‘Flexihealth’, portant sur 4961 travailleurs belges, vise à établir un lien entre les changements majeurs, la perception des modifications des conditions de travail qu’ils impliquent et le bien-être des travailleurs. Les résultats montrent que les changements vécus ont un impact négatif significatif non seulement sur les conditions de travail mais aussi sur le bien-être des travailleurs. Ce résultat doit toutefois être nuancé selon le type de changement vécu. En ce sens, le changement de supérieur et le changement de tâches sont davantage préjudiciables pour les travailleurs. L’âge et la catégorie professionnelle des travailleurs sont également des variables considérées pour nuancer ces résultats. Ainsi, les travailleurs âgés de 46 à 55 ans ainsi que les ouvriers constituent des groupes à risques. [less ▲]

In this paper, we compare five tree-based machine learning methods within a recent generic image classification framework based on random extraction and classification of subwindows. We evaluate them on three publicly available object recognition datasets (COIL-100, ETH-80, and ZuBuD). Our comparison shows that this general and conceptually simple framework yields good results when combined with ensemble of decision trees, especially when using Tree Boosting or Extra-Trees. The latter is also particularly attractive in terms of computational efficiency. [less ▲]

The state of Minas Gerais (Brazil) exhibits several major karst areas located in sandstone and quartzite terrains, that display a complex suite of underground and surface karstic forms. In the Espinhaço Ridge, central Minas Gerais, several caves, up to a few hundred metres long, occur in the surroundings of the town of Diamantina. Some of these caves, such as Salitre, represent swallow-holes and show dome pits. Other horizontal caves are characterized by corrosion forms generated into the phreatic zone. In some places, such as in the Rio Preto area, these phreatic forms have been overprinted by ceiling tubes, suggesting a polyphase karst evolution, prior to the draining of the cave. Relicts of passages, with circular cross section up to a metre in diametre, can be found amidst the residual tower-like surface landforms, which constitute a typical scenery in the landscape. Their dissection is due to a generalised karstification in the area, resulting in closed canyons, megakarrens and kamenitzas. In southern Minas Gerais, close to the Mantiqueira Ridge, the caves of the state park of Ibitipoca can extent 2 km in length. These caves are associated with a very large hanging geological syncline. Several of these caves contain active streams, that flow for hundreds of metres before disappearing in sand-choked passages. Keyhole cross sections characterize steeply descending passages in these caves, indicating a change from slow phreatic flow towards a faster vadose flow responsible for the vertical incision of the passage. Such change is probably related to base level lowering and/or to turn in the direction of the water flow. Several generations of wall-pockets, from a few centimetres to over a metre long, occur into the caves. These features are good indicators of the initial phase of speleogenesis, generating the initial conduits by their coalescence. This mechanism is also responsible for cut-off meanders. The main river in the area, which flows along the syncline axis, cuts through a rock barrier, generating a tunnel-like passage. This cave drains, through resurgences in its walls, part of the water that flows in other caves located in the flank of the syncline. The non-carbonate karst features observed in the state of Minas Gerais demonstrate the complex organisation of polyphase karst systems due to the linkage of underground and surface forms not previously connected. As in carbonate areas, these systems may play an important hydrological role. [less ▲]

This research developed at University of Liege aims to optimize the complete semi-continuous casting process at LBP Company, a producer of copper-nickel alloys (or cupro-nickels). The process consists in vertical casting of 7m long ingots. Some problems recurrently occur during casting process: formation of oscillations (wave length of about 500 mm), unsuitable concave cross-sections or internal cracks. In order to reduce the occurrence of such defects and to better understand their formation, we have been asked to develop a finite element model. The research focuses on two main topics: identification of material properties through laboratory tests and literature survey and the development of the numerical tool. The laboratory tests provide thermal and mechanical properties of the ingot and the mould, as well as heat transfer coefficients between the ingot and its surroundings (mould, air and water). These parameters are required for the numerical simulations of the process. In the second part of the research, numerical calculations have been performed using finite element method. Two types of 2D models have already been studied: horizontal slice and vertical slice. This first choice has been guided by the high coupling between thermal and mechanical aspects of the problem, leading to highly complex systems of equations and subsequent long CPU times. However, due to the limitations of such 2D models, a 3D formulation has then been considered and it is still in progress. [less ▲]

A series of HST STIS UV images of Saturn's aurora were obtained on 13 days in Jan. 2004 as the Cassini spacecraft measured the approaching solar wind properties. Clear general correlations have been found between the auroral power and a) Saturn's kilometric radiation, and b) the solar wind dynamic pressure, but not with the direction of the interplanetary magnetic field. While these general correlations are now well established, a closer examination of the data raises many interesting questions. Saturn's auroral emissions exhibit both local time and co-rotational properties, the auroral oval does not appear centered on the magnetic and rotational pole, the auroral emissions exhibit large and unexpected motions in latitude with time and/or planetary rotation, and the auroral oval does not appear continuous, but broken with longitude. This talk will present a more detailed look at Saturn's aurora from the HST images, with a comparison of auroral emission properties to those at the Earth and Jupiter. [less ▲]
