Cet article examine l’évolution et la modulation des usages des « objets médiateurs » en design industriel depuis l’avènement des outils de CAO (Conception Assistée par Ordinateur). Ces outils ont longtemps été étudiés en regard des avantages et inconvénients que leur utilisation constituait pour le processus de conception, et toujours en comparaison des outils dits « traditionnels » (dessins à main levée, maquettes) [9 ; 5]. L’article suggère d’étudier plutôt ces outils, médiateurs de l’activité de conception, pour leur complémentarité qui apparaît parfois très en amont du processus de conception (dès la phase conceptuelle). Les bases théoriques qui structurent l’ensemble de l’intervention sont présentées et discutées à la lumière de cette suggestion tout comme les principaux résultats d’une intervention in situ, pour une objectivation des nouvelles pratiques « métier ».

Cette contribution appréhende les enjeux politiques de la mission du « ministère du Combat spirituel » (MCS), mouvement pentecôtiste évangélique créé par le couple Olangi-Wosho à Kinshasa en 1991.

By considering a least squares approximation of a given square integrable function f:[0,1]^n to R by a multilinear polynomial of a specified degree, we define an index which measures the overall interaction among variables of f. This definition extends the concept of Banzhaf interaction index introduced in cooperative game theory. Our approach is partly inspired from multilinear regression analysis, where interactions among the independent variables are taken into consideration. We show that this interaction index has appealing properties which naturally generalize the properties of the Banzhaf interaction index. In particular, we interpret this index as an expected value of the difference quotients of f or, under certain natural conditions on f, as an expected value of the derivatives of f. These interpretations show a strong analogy between the introduced interaction index and the overall importance index defined by Grabisch and Labreuche. Finally, we discuss a few applications of the interaction index. [less ▲]

In order to assess the hydromorphological quality of surface waters, stakeholders need river typologies accurate and functional enough to be a really efficient management tool. From a typological study based a broad set of hydromorphological field data, we have shown that some variables, like the unit stream power (), are particularly appropriate to describe the dynamics of a river. Initial results of repeated measurement in more than 80 sites revealed a regional differentiation based on critical values of stream power at bankfull discharge. The aim of this study is to present a unit stream power mapping for the whole network based on general equation  =  g Q S / w, with  the density of water, g the acceleration due to gravity, Q the discharge, S the slope and w the channel width). Slope is extracted from DEM. Bankfull discharge and width estimations are furnished by allometric equations using the watershed area. Different coefficients are used according to regional differentiations based on bedload size and watershed permeability. The statistical significance of all equations was tested by covariance analysis. A correction taking into account the used log-log scale, was also applied to the obtained allometric equations (Fergusson, 1988). Using a 30 x 30 meters DEM, GIS routines were developed. A first one automatically sectorizes the network and a second evaluates the unit streamspower in each location. We propose a 7-level classification in accordance with the associated morphological processes describe in the literature (from fixed meanders to step-pools system). The mapping unit starts at the Strahler second order. Our results not only support a regional typology, but moreover allow us to describe natural regions in function of river dynamics and to estimate the resistance of restoration works like vegetal techniques. It can also provide estimates of the excess stream power (the fraction of the actual stream power exceeding the power at which bedload particles start to move). (Fergusson, R.,I., 1988. River loads underestimated by rating curves, Water Resour. Res., 24(7), 1217–1219.) [less ▲]

Introduction: The study of normal structures of the sheep’s brain is very important to understand pathological changes caused by the bluetongue virus in the fetus’s brain at various stages of the gestation. Bluetongue is an arthropod-borne viral disease of domestic and wild ruminants. The serotype 8 is responsible for outbreaks in Northern Europe in 2006. This virus causes lesions in the brain of fetuses as hydrancephaly and porencephaly. The aim of this work is to improve knowledge of anatomy and histology of the central nervous system of the sheep. Methods: Seven heads of adult sheep and one from a fetus aged 4,5 months were used. All heads were first opened in the frontal area using bone’s saw and immerged in a formalin solution for 10 days. After a good fixation, the brains were extracted and sectioned. Transversal, frontal and sagittal sections were realized. The sections of two brains were stained with Berlin-blue and treated to be embedded in methylmetacrylate for gross morphology. The different parts of the 6 resting brains were then embedded in paraffin, cut and the histological sections were stained with haematoxylin/eosin, cresyl violet or by use of silver impregnation. Results: Gross morphological examination of the brains embedded in methylmetacrylate showed the detailed anatomy of the different parts. The staining with haematoxylin/eosin permitted to differentiate the grey matter, the different nucleus and the layers of cerebral and cerebellum cortex. The cresyl violet technique permitted to visualize the Nissl bodies and the silver impregnation revealed nerve fibers. In the fetus brain, blood vessels were very numerous in the brainstem, the cerebellum and the cerebrum. The grey matter was less organized and looser. Conclusion: This work establishes an anatomical and histological approach allowing future studies in ovine fetuses with and without brain lesions potentially caused by the bluetongue virus. [less ▲]

Grâce à l’analyse statistique discursive d’un corpus constitué du discours de 90 enfants, nous avons pu observer l’évolution de l’utilisation des pronoms personnels moi et je et mettre en évidence certaines variations d’utilisation en fonction de l’âge et de trois conditions d’enregistrement. Le protocole de recherche utilisé nous permet de laisser le sujet libre de s’exprimer. Aucun thème n’a été proposé aux enfants. « En recueillant paroles et textes libres, le chercheur accède à tout l’univers du sujet, riche de sa singularité individuelle et de son appartenance culturelle et sociale. » (Moscarola, 2001). Ce n’est pas le développement du langage qui est étudié mais bien le discours qui, selon nous, permet un accès au sens, aux structures psychiques de l’individu. L’analyse du discours nous permet d’étudier le développement de la conscience de soi grâce à une méthodologie simple et non contraignante pour les enfants. Cette recherche trouve son originalité dans le croisement des résultats de l’analyse statistique textuelle (Lexico3, Tropes) avec les théories du développement de la conscience de soi. Les résultats de ces analyses nous montrent que dès l’instant où le je apparaît, le moi auparavant utilisé seul en tant que sujet se transforme en complément du sujet-je. En tant que complément du sujet, il objective le sujet parlant, lui permettant une mise à distance. Le sujet peut donc se regarder agir, faire où être en tant qu’objet. La forme moi-je, également fréquente dans le discours de l’enfant, est pour nous, sans doute, la forme réflexive la plus claire de l’avènement de la conscience de soi se manifestant par le biais du discours narratif autobiographique. Plus tard dans le discours de l’enfant, le je va pouvoir exister seul. Notre hypothèse est qu’étant davantage conscient de lui-même, l’enfant n’aurait plus systématiquement recours à la projection de son moi pour prendre conscience de son existence en tant qu’être parmi les autres.

Nonlinear vibration absorbers are known as being frequency-robust but not amplitude-robust devices. This lack of amplitude robustness is due to the frequency-energy dependence of their related nonlinear oscillations. This feature makes the design of nonlinear vibration absorbers a particulary challenging problem. In this paper an innovative design procedure of a nonlinear vibration absorber is proposed so that a nonlinear mode of a nonlinear primary structure can be controlled in a frequency and amplitude robustness fashion.

Induced by climate change, intensity and frequency of droughts should be more important for the next century. How does water availability affect the physiology of woody plants at the species and stand scale? Carbon and water vapour fluxes measurements of a mixed forest (deciduous and coniferous) were performed for over ten years by the eddy covariance method in Belgian Ardennes (Aubinet et al, 2001) as a part of the CarboEurope project. Whereas carbon fluxes have been analyzed in detailed and good estimations of the Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE) and Gross Primary Production (GPP) were obtained, a thorough analysis of water vapour fluxes remains to be done. Improving analysis of water vapour fluxes and monitoring species transpiration will contribute to the estimation of the water use efficiency, WUE, at both the species and stand scale. The WUE well characterizes the vegetation productivity and ecosystem response to environmental factors. It also allows evaluating the sensitivity of temperate woody species to drought. The species concerned are beech (Fagus sylvatica L.), Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) and silver fir (Abies alba Mill.). Since summer 2009 we monitor and analyze each species water use by measuring sap flow with the thermal dissipation method (Granier, 1987). Results at the species level will then be upscaled and compared to stand water vapour fluxes measurements obtained by the eddy covariance methodology. Transpiration of each species will be analyzed in relation with their own phenological and ecophysiological attributes, ecosystem soil and atmospheric conditions, to clarify among others their behaviour in case of water deficit. Data are actually analysed, the presented results will concern the 2009, and a part of 2010 growing season. [less ▲]

A combination of numerical and experimental methods is used to compare the efficiency of two microstructures of Ti5553 titanium alloy in an industrial test case. The test case consists in two parts of sectors of aircraft engine stators linked together by an Inconel bolt and submitted to tensile loading. The efficiency of these microstructures is evaluated by using finite element (FE) models. The chosen FE models take into account elasto-visco-plastic material behaviors, contact with friction (bolt heads/flanges and flange/flange), and the initial bolt tightening. The parameters of the elasto-visco-plastic (EVP) material law are adjusted from experimental results extracted from tensile tests performed on Inconel, and Ti5553 alloys. Viscous properties are observed at different strain rates. The studied alloy is assumed to be plastically isotropic. In order to compare the fracture resistance of both microstructures, a micro-mechanical (damage based) rupture model ([4]) is used as a FE post-processing step. [less ▲]

The present work offers an approach to the relative orbital motion by using hypercomplex algebra. An extension to this notion is used for vectors, by introducing the hypercomplex vector in the same way as hypercomplex numbers are defined. The solution to the relative orbital motion is offered in all possible situations (it stands for any Keplerian reference or targeted trajectories). A unified view on the relative orbital motion is suggested, by generalizing the previous approaches. The solution is offered to the nonlinear model of the relative motion and it is expressed in a coordinate-free hypercomplex vectorial closed form. The key element of this approach is the hypercomplex eccentric anomaly, introduced via a Sundman-like vectorial regularization. [less ▲]

Study on environmental factors influencing the urea content of cow milk in Wallonia (Belgium). The urea content in tank milk is currently assessed in Wallonia (Belgium) for all milk producers by the Comité du lait. A statistical analysis was carried out on 5,675,758 data collected over the 2002-2008 period in order to study the variation in the urea content in milk from cows according to the months of the years and the agronomy areas. The data were analyzed with a linear model (proc GLM) including the fixed effects of the area, the month of sampling, the year and the interactions. The fat and proteins contents in milk were used as covariables. The average urea content in milk over the six years was 258 mg.l-1. A proportion of 19% of the contents were over 350 mg.l-1and 10% over 400 mg.l-1. The model explained 35% of the variation of the urea content. Within the model, the agronomy area was the most explicative component (44%). It was followed by the area-month interaction (18.6%), the protein content (17.8%) and the month (10.5%). The variation of the urea content in milk could be mainly explained by the differences in the diets offered to the lactating dairy cows according to the agronomy areas. The composition of the diets varies with the crops produced and therefore with the agronomy area. Higher urea contents were observed in areas with a lot of pastures (grazing areas) than in the arable areas. In the grazing areas, feedstuffs higher in protein than in energy are consumed by the cows: the excess of protein is probably the reason for the higher urea content. The feedstuffs produced in the arable areas are more various with more diversified and balanced diets. The season influenced also the urea content, a higher urea content being observed during the summer period as compared with the winter period. The changes could be explained by dietary differences between the indoor winter period and the grazing period in Summer. During the indoor period, the dairy cows are offered normally a complete diet which is more balanced than during the grazing period. [less ▲]

In a hybrid approach experimental model data are combined with results from 3D and 2D numerical modelling. The latter was conducted by two different models solving the depth-averaged shallow water equations. 3D computations are based on the REYNOLDS-averaged NAVIER-STOKES equations (RANS) using a volume of fluid approach to capture the free water surface. Measurements were performed on a scale model which was especially designed to reproduce the specific conditions of dike breaks. In various simulations it turned out that 2D shallow water models are able to reproduce steadystate flow patterns of dike-break induced flows and that there is a low sensitivity of the solution concerning turbulence modelling, bed and wall roughness. Nevertheless, final flow splits and breach discharges are systematically underestimated. This discrepancy seems to result from inherent modelling assumptions such as zero-vertical velocity and hydrostatic pressure distribution. Therefore, the complementary use of 3D RANS and 2D depth-averaged modelling frameworks for detailed predictions of dike-break induced flows is discussed in the present paper, based on BOUSSINESQ and pressure coefficients, which represent effects of non-uniform velocity profiles and non-hydrostatic pressure distribution over water depth, respectively. Values of these coefficients are inferred from 3D numerical results for the final steady state. [less ▲]

This paper analyses the quality of collaboration of two student teams in a longitudinal study of a collaborative distant architectural studio. Based on a simple method to assess several dimensions of this quality of collaboration, we compared the two groups at three stages of the design process. We also analysed how the quality of collaboration evolved over time and as a function of the design stage. We finally discuss the interests of the method and some insights to support a better understanding of mechanisms of collaboration. [less ▲]

Environmental concerns and growing computer resources have promoted the emergence of new simulation tools and especially Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A lot of academic studies have proved the interest of this approach. Unfortunately, for non-expert users, it is sometimes difficult to deal with turbulence modelling. Indeed, in this area, conclusions of previous studies are very fickle and sometimes contradictory. This paper aims to evaluate the impact of the turbulence modelling with different Reynolds-Average Navier-Stokes (RANS) techniques applied to airflows inside buildings. It appears that differences are often very small and completely insignificant at the design stage. However, when numerical resources requirements and computing time are considered, important differences appear in favour of the simplest model. [less ▲]

This study evaluated the contribution of implementation intentions over the constructs of the theory of planned behaviour in testing a confirmatory model explaining the relationships between antecedents of academic achievement for university students. It was found that the effects of intention to perform and its classic antecedents on exams performance were mediated by implementation intentions with a considerable increase of amount of explained variance above the contribution of the constructs of planned behaviour theory. This paper is organized as follows. We first introduce the construct of intention, particularly in the context of the well documented model of the theory of planned behaviour (TPB). The limitation of this model will be explained and a basic distinction it does not consider will be pointed to: forming an intention vs. implementing it. Then we present the Heckhausen and Gollwitzer's Action Phases Model (APM) and the construct of implementation intention. The results of experimental and correlational researches on the predictive power of this construct, especially in the educational domain, will be discussed. Thirdly, we propose an integrative model which fills the gap between TPB and performance by introducing implementation intentions from unwanted inner states. Fourthly, we give the results of an experimental research aiming in testing this model conducted in an educational settings and using a confirmatory design (Structural Equation Modelling). In the end, we insist on the implication of these results for students. [less ▲]

Hanoi province, Vietnam has much potential for agricultural development with its large consumer market for agricultural products, soil and water resources, natural climate, physical and social infrastructure. It is also one of provinces that has attracted a large number of investors. However, there are few agriculture investment projects in Hanoi in recent years. This paper presents the results of the structure interview of 200 managers of agricultural firms, co-operatives and farms in Hanoi province in 2008-2009. Even if these enterprises are pleased with their business performance and profitability, the investment climate could have negative effects obstructing investment incentives in agriculture. The study revealed eight key factors determining the investment climate in agriculture in Hanoi province, which include: land issue, provincial policies for agriculture, capital, physical infrastructure, administrative procedures, market, technology and labor issue. Land issues and provincial agricultural policies are the most important constraints; the second group are capital, physical infrastructure, governmental administration; and the third are market, technology and labor issues.

Due to their high social and biological significance, faces should be able to capture attention in a bottom-up fashion. Accordingly, a recent visual search study showed that the presence of an upright distractor face slows down the search for a butterfly target while the presence of a butterfly distractor does not affect the search for a target face (Langton et al., 2008). To further test whether upright faces automatically capture attention we recorded eye movements during a cued target search task. We show that when the search alternates between a face and a butterfly target (Experiment 1), faces are found faster and with less saccades than butterflies. The presence of the opposite distractor within the display (e.g. a face during a butterfly search) slows down the search but to a higher extent when the distractor is a face. Similarly, faces capture the eyes more frequently than butterflies. In a control experiment inverted face targets were also found more efficiently than inverted butterfly targets and captured the eyes more frequently than butterflies when presented as distractors (Experiment 2). However, when upright or inverted faces were always presented as irrelevant distractors (Experiment 3), we could not found any sign of disruption caused by their presence during a search for butterfly or flower targets. These results challenge the view that faces capture attention automatically. Rather, they suggest that faces only attract attention when their processing is relevant during the search task and that they can otherwise be ignored. [less ▲]

Le but de ce travail est de comparer l’extraction faite par chauffage classique (CC) avec celle réalisée sous micro-ondes (MO). Deux modes d’extraction ont été réalisés : - L’hydro-distillation par chauffage classique (extraction par entraînement à la vapeur d’un solvant) et, - L’hydro-distillation activée par micro-ondes. Les MO permettent un gain de temps considérable. Par exemple, dans le cas du lavandula dentata : on note une cinétique 3 fois plus rapide, de plus le rendement est nettement supérieur (1% contre 0,6% par chauffage classique). Dans le cas de la plante fraiche, l’extraction est faite en absence de solvant sous MO. Ceci présente un grand intérêt sur le plan économique et environnemental. De plus, la qualité de l’huile extraite présente généralement une meilleure pureté. L’extraction par MO constitue une technique en accord avec la chimie verte. Grâce à ce procédé, on pourra alors réduire d'environ 60 % les besoins en énergie, ce qui diminuera d'autant les émissions de gaz à effet de serre. [less ▲]

In this paper, we describe the expected performance of ALADDIN, a nulling interferometer project optimised for operation at Dome C. After reviewing the main atmospheric parameters pertaining to infrared interferometry on the high Antarctic plateau, we shortly describe the ALADDIN instrument and compute its estimated performance in terms of the smallest exozodiacal dust disc density that can be detected. Our estimations are based on a thorough end-to-end software simulator previously developed for the GENIE nulling interferometer project at VLTI. We then propose a possible mission scenario, where the southern target stars of future exo-Earth characterisation missions can be surveyed for the presence of bright exozodiacal discs (>50 zodi) within one winter-over at Concordia.
