In many Western countries over the last 35 years, the quest for more scientific governance on <br />crucial technological issues led to a broadening of the political world’s sphere of competences. <br />Indeed, various countries decided that dealing with global, invisible, irreversible and irreparable <br />risks had to be handled by an appropriate tool of management of technological innovations. So the <br />usefulness to institutionalize parliamentary Technology Assessment (PTA) offices emerged. <br />Nowadays, PTA is an instrument particularly suitable to study the new shape of science and <br />society’s interface and it represents a remarkable attempt to reform the institutional settings of <br />innovation. <br />However, while the overall uncertainty surrounding science and technology has been used by public <br />actors like parliamentarians or ministers in the past to legitimize a first generation of PTAs, the <br />emergence of a second generation in the 1990’s – centred on the constructive, interactive or <br />participatory TA approches – emphazises the co-evolution of technology and society rather than the <br />former linear determinist rationale. In this context, the STS community of scholars is increasingly <br />called upon by the public authorities to provide a “professional service role” (RIP, 1994), that is to <br />say to take a step into action out of the border of their intellectual engagement. <br />Then, we suggest to compare two successive periods by looking at the institutional management of <br />two distinct-but-complementary technological issues: biotechnology and nanotechnology. The <br />former has been taken into account by public actors at a time when the second generation of PTAs <br />was not yet rooted in the political practices. Thus, the management of the public debate related to <br />biotechnology has been characterized by a lack of sensitive, fruitful and interactive communication <br />between the stakeholders involved in the TA process, while the first applications were already being <br />commercialized. On the other hand, the latter is currently being tackled at a moment when the social <br />shaping of technology is widely acknowledged as well as the STS community may be invited to <br />pass from observation to participation in the political sphere. Given the uncertainty and complexity <br />encircling nanotechnology as well as its huge potential in many interconnected disciplinary fields, <br />the need to avoid the pitfall of the biotechnology’s experience is commonly accepted. <br />We offer to take nanotechnology as one of the most challenging technological issue to look beyond <br />the biotechnology’s roadblock and to show in which proportion the same scenario is reasonably <br />thinkable today, in order to spotlight whether we have learnt from the past in considering what is <br />1 <br />sometimes called “a new industrial revolution”. <br />We will raise some research questions like: how different are current TA practices as compared to <br />former ones? Are there new regimes emerging? Given the current technological convergence, how <br />complicated would it be to deal with NBIC technologies if we missed the point with biotechnology <br />alone? How suitable is PTA to engage in such interdisciplinary issues? Are we assisting the <br />emergence of a third PTA generation around the growing role of the STS community? How does <br />this scientific community dialogue with the historians of science who analyzed the earlier industrial <br />revolutions? [less ▲]

La région liégeoise est passée à la postérité pour avoir été un des berceaux d'une mutation technique importante pour la production du fer: le développement du procédé indirect de réduction du minerai de fer, impliquant l'élaboration dans un haut-fourneau d'une fonte riche en carbone, qui doit ensuite être affinée pour obtenir du fer. Cependant la chronologie de la diffusion de ce nouveau procédé est à l'heure actuelle encore assez mal connue, les sources textuelles se montrant plutôt discrètes quant aux détails techniques. L'apport d'une étude technique d'échantillons de fer provenant de bâtiments médiévaux, bien datés par leur contexte architectural et couvrant la période du XIIIème au XVIIème siècles, est donc envisagée ici. Cette étude a en particulier permis de détecter la production de fer par la filière indirecte dès les années 1330, soit à une date légérement antérieure aux premières mentions dans les sources écrites (datées vers 1371).

Quelle place la philosophie doit-elle faire à la « question anthropologique » ou à la « question de l’homme » ? En dépit du succès incontestable de l’anthropologie philosophique dans le courant du vingtième siècle, cette question est peut-être, comme on sait, plus complexe qu’il n’y paraît. Les travaux de Daniel Giovannangeli, en retraçant les médiations que l’on connaît (Kant lu par Heidegger, lui-même lu par Sartre et relu par Foucault), ont largement mis en lumière cette complexité. Sur quoi repose-t-elle ? Pourquoi l’orientation sur l’homme semble-t-elle à la fois incontournable et trop réductrice ? Je me bornerai ici à avancer une hypothèse, vers laquelle convergent, me semble-t-il, les travaux de D. Giovannangeli, et que je formulerais pour ma part de la manière suivante : le traitement philosophique de la question anthropologique est indissociable d’un problème de fondation, la philosophie se caractérisant elle-même prioritairement par une dimension fondationnelle.

Background: Over several decades the use of antibiotics to treat infectious and bacterial diseases has been the main challenge. Ceftazidime (CAZ), belonging to the cephalosporin’s family, is known as empiric treatment for severe sepsis. Beside its antibiotic effect, CAZ has been shown to have other properties, making it unique. This study is aimed to investigate unexpected antioxidant properties of CAZ with special emphasis on the mechanism of action. Methods: Four in vitro and ex-vivo experimental models were designed 1) Assay of proteinases inhibitory activity of α2-macroglobulin (α2M) in the presence of trypsine (1.4µg) with or without 10-3 M CAZ, in 0.1 M Tris-HCl at pH 8.1. 2) Assessment of MPO-induced toxicity on endothelial cells or oxidant activities of stimulated phagocytes (PMNs) using 160 µM ferricytochrome C. 3) Effect of CAZ on two models of anoxia/reoxygenation from adherent and suspension alveolar cells (A549, 106 to 1010 cells/ml) using oxymetry coupled to EPR-spin trapping technique. 4) Cell-free systems to investigate: lipoperoxidation of linoleate induced by γ-irradiation, Fe2+/ascorbate system or ferryl species; Quenching of hydroxyl radical (·OH) and singlet oxygen (1O2)-scavenging activity from Mallet’s (H2O2/NaOCl) and Fenton’ reactions. Results: Ex-vivo assays show efficient protective effect of CAZ on plasmatic antiproteinases against oxidative stress; a dose-dependent inhibitory capacity on endothelial and A549 cells against MPO toxicity or excessive production of ROS during anoxia/reoxygenation. On cell-free systems, CAZ had unique 1O2–scavenging activity; and less effect on ferryl species. CAZ exerts its antioxidant effect by chelating activity. Conclusions: Overall results indicate that: 1) CAZ protects endothelial cells against MPO toxicity but also A549 cells towards the effect of anoxia/reoxygenation; 2) CAZ protects α2M and 3) acts as efficient inhibitor of lipid peroxidation of linoleate and hydroxyl radical and as singlet oxygen-scavengers. Antioxidant properties of CAZ might be relevant in clinical situations where excessive activation of leukocytes is known and in anoxia/reoxygenation model cause an increased production of ROS.

An automatic daily atmospheric circulation patterns classification was built using the geopotential heights of 850 hPa level from the ECMWF (re)analysis over the period 1958-2007. The classification is based on a similarity index between two 850hPa geopotential maps centred on Belgium, taking into account the slope difference between both daily geopotential surfaces as well as the absolute geopotential difference between both surfaces. Wildfire occurrences are analysed in April and September together with monthly frequencies and persistences of daily atmospheric circulation patterns types as well as with monthly variability of weather climate conditions.

Major earthquakes in urban areas have often been followed by significant conflagrations that have been difficult to control and have resulted in extensive damage to property. Earthquakes, then, increase the risk of loss of life if a fire occurs within a building. It is obvious therefore that a fire after an earthquake is a design scenario that should be properly addressed in any performance-based design, in locations where significant earthquakes can occur. In this paper both experimental and numerical results of undamaged and pre-damaged welded steel-concrete composite beam-to-column joints with concrete filled tubes are described as part of a European project aimed at developing fundamental data, design guidelines and prequalification of ductile and fire resistant composite beam-to-column joints. In detail, both the experimental program and the fire experimental results are presented and discussed in this paper together with thermal numerical simulations on frames and joints. Both the experimental activity and the numerical work demonstrated the adequacy of the seismic and joint fire design. [less ▲]

This study focuses on the prosecution of genocide-denial in Belgium and on the current deadlock of this political question. A political science approach is used to shed light on this issue which makes often the headlines. The study is based on the analysis of parliamentary documents and on several interviews with the key actors of this issue. This approach enables an analytic understanding of this question. The research topic is all the more meaningful because it concerns dialectics between the present and the past and it puts into questions the place of history in politics. [less ▲]

Dans le prolongement de la Directive Benelux d’avril 1996 (libre circulation des poissons migrateurs) et de la Directive Cadre sur l’Eau de l’Union Européenne (2000/60/CE), le rétablissement de la continuité piscicole dans nos cours d’eau fait partie des objectifs prioritaires de la Direction des Cours d’eau Non Navigables du Ministère de la Région Wallonne. Depuis 1997, différents acteurs, gestionnaires, sociétés de pêches et scientifiques abordent en profondeur cette problématique par l’exécution de différentes actions intégrées. Depuis environ 10 ans, un travail de terrain considérable est accompli pour le compte de la Région wallonne par la Fédération de Pêche Vesdre-Amblève (asbl) qui répertorie et géoréférence la totalité des obstacles physiques susceptibles de perturber la continuité piscicole dans les cours d’eau de Wallonie. En parallèle, le Laboratoire de Démographie des Poissons et d’Hydroécologie (LDPH) de l’Université de Liège étudie l’impact biologique de certains de ces obstacles sur les populations de poissons, principalement en utilisant la technique du radio-pistage. Ces recherches permettent de mieux connaître les phénomènes de mobilité et de migrations des poissons de nos cours d’eau ainsi que leurs capacités à franchir en remontée des obstacles typologiquement très différents. Ces travaux permettent d’identifier les sites critiques qui doivent prioritairement êtres équipés de dispositifs de franchissement efficaces. Le contrôle scientifique du fonctionnement des passes migratoires nouvellement construites démontre clairement leurs effets positifs sur la qualité écologique et piscicole de la rivière. De tels résultats justifient fortement de multiplier ce type d’action de restauration écologique (hydromorphologique) dans d’autres cours d’eau. Au cours de notre exposé, nous présenterons, avec des résultats concrets, un premier bilan des travaux déjà effectués et nous dégagerons les perspectives à moyen et long terme en matière de libre circulation des poissons dans les cours d’eau wallons, non seulement en remontée mais aussi en descente (ou dévalaison).

In the Mediterranean coastal zone, one the most important ecosystem is the Posidonia oceanica meadow. This seagrass is endemic of the Mediterranean Sea and plays many important ecological roles like oxygen production, nursery for numerous commercial species of fishes and protection of coastal zones by reducing the impact of waves. However, there is a severe lack of informations on small scale variations in its sediment compartment. In an attempt to understand spatial variations in the microbenthic loop (bacteria, organic matter, microphytobenthos and meiofauna) of this ecosystem, an experiment was led in Calvi Bay (Corsica, France), in March 2008, at 10 m depth. Twelve points were sampled randomly in a 125 x 125 cm grid, divided into twenty-five 25 x 25 cm squares, to assess and describe the spatial distribution and variations of different parameters of the sediment. Those parameters are granulometry, density of the P. oceanica meadow, nutrients concentration in pore water, bacteria (biomass, abundance, morphotypes), organic matter (biomass), microphytobenthos (biomass), roots and rhizomes (biomass) and meiofauna (biomass). Distribution maps were produced using the DIVA (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis) method. Our results prove that the sediment compartment is highly heterogeneous at small scale, especially for bacteria and in the first centimeter of sediment cores. Moreover, a correlation has been established between microphytobenhtos variations and phosphate concentration in pore water. For the first time, such small scale variations are depicted in a P. oceanica meadow, which underlines the importance to take them into account in sampling strategies. [less ▲]

The innermost Galilean moon Io is embedded in a dense plasma torus. It disturbs the flow of the corotating torus plasma and generates MHD waves. Especially the Alfv ́ n e mode, which carries electric currents along the magnetic field, is responsible for the famous Io footprint in the Jo- vian aurora. The Alfv ́ n waves are partly reflected at plasma e density gradients e.g. at the torus edges and form a compli- cated wave pattern. The footprint morphology in the Jovian aurora displays this pattern. Besides the main spot feature, a trailing wake extending over up to 100 degrees and occa- sionally occurring multiple spots indicating reflections have been identified. The intensity, the occurrence of multiple spots and the inter-spot distances have been found to vary strongly [1]. Io is moving up and down in the plasma torus confined to the centrifugal equator. It interacts with a dense plasma when located in the torus center and considerably thinner plasma at the torus flanks. The incoming plasma density controls the interaction strength and wave amplitude. This primar- ily leads to a relationship between the footprint brightness and Io’s centrifugal latitude [1]. However, it has also been shown that the reflection angle is strongly depending on the wave amplitude due to nonlinear effects [2]. This has an impact on the inter-spot distances. On the other hand this parameter is also directly affected when Io changes its posi- tion in the plasma torus. To deconvolve this system we present the results of our 3D MHD simulations showing the influence of Io’s centrifugal latitude and nonlinearities on the footprint morphology par- ticularly on the number of spots and inter-spot distances. We observe interference phenomena leading to locally en- hanced or reduced footprint brightness. We also discuss the recently observed leading spot feature [3]. [less ▲]

Jupiter's main auroral oval is associated with the ionosphere-magnetosphere coupling current system which is related to the breakdown of corotation in the middle magnetosphere. Its auroral footpath is usually represented as a smooth line closing around the pole. However, this simplistic view is misleading in many regards. We have constructed a new reference contour in the northern hemisphere (Figure 1), based on more than 1000 HST/UV images, which does not look like an oval and does not close around the pole. We use this reference contour to quantify the effects of temporal and local time variability of the magnetospheric plasma characteristics on the location of the main auroral emission. Beyond the orbit of Ganymede (15RJ), two key ingredients are expected to have a measurable influence on the instantaneous shape of the main emission contour: the azimuthal current flowing in the current sheet [1,2] and the corotation breakdown distance. The former affects the radial extent of the magnetic field lines, and the latter determines the radial location of the field aligned currents transmitting momentum from the planet to the lagging plasma. So far, models used to magnetically map the auroral main emission between the ionosphere and the equatorial plane assumed that these two parameters are constant and axisymmetric. However, in situ observations, mainly by Galileo, have revealed large local time asymmetries and temporal variations in the plasma flows and distribution. These variations have an impact on the azimuthal current and the distance at which the plasma angular velocity becomes significantly smaller than planetary rotation. We use a new magnetic field model [3], inherited from VIP4 and including a magnetic anomaly in the northern hemisphere, to simulate the effects of these asymmetries on the location of the main auroral emission, and interpret the large scattering of the corresponding HST data point.

The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) and the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) on board the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have been used to study the characteristics of Saturn’s FUV aurora, which is dominated by the Lyman and Werner bands of H2 and the H Lyman-α line. Images have been analyzed to determine the altitude of the emission above the limb and infer the characteristic energy of the auroral electrons. Our study shows that the peak of the emission is located 1000-1300 km above the limb, indicating that the precipitated electrons are mostly in the 0.1-1 keV energy range, that is significantly less than on Jupiter. Another source of information on the electron energy are the FUV spectra obtained with Voyager UVS (Sandel et al., 1982) and the HST-STIS (Gérard et al., 2004) and Cassini-UVIS spectrographs which only occasionally show a signature of absorption by hydrocarbons. Consequently, the emission is located above but close to the methane homopause. Finally, EUV spectra collected with the FUSE satellite (Gustin et al., 2008) provide information on the H2 column overlying the aurora through analysis of self-absorption and rotational temperature of the emitting layer from the intensity distribution among the H2 lines. If Moses et al. (2000)’s low latitude model is used to convert altitudes into pressure levels, H2 and hydrocarbon columns and temperature, discrepancies appear between the observed temperature, ultraviolet colour ratio and geometric altitude of the emission. One possibility is that the temperature near the homopause sharply increases at a pressure level higher than in the equatorial regions. [less ▲]

The Io UV footprint is an auroral feature observed close to the feet of the field lines passing through Io on both Jovian hemispheres. These light emissions are caused by the electromagnetic interaction between the satellite Io and the Jovian magnetosphere. For both the north and south poles, the Io footprint appears as a bright spot followed by a faint trailing tail and occasionally followed or preceded by secondary spots. The footprint morphology and the spots multiplicity have been found to vary with the location of Io in the plasma torus. [less ▲]

L’objectif de cette communication est l’étude de deux micro-écoulements différents au moyen d’un système de micro-PIV non inversé. Ces écoulements diffèrent entre eux par les aspects suivants: Le premier, un écoulement pulmonaire, est représentatif d’un flux stationnaire confiné. Le second, la formation de gouttelettes par un capillaire contrôlé par un cristal piézoélectrique, est représentatif d’un écoulement périodique à surface libre. La faisabilité de ce type de mesure est évaluée en mettant l’accent sur le fait que ces expérimentations ont été menées sur des micro-écoulements courbes tridimensionnels. [less ▲]

Since the discovery of Sharpless and Meldal, the copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) is more and more popular in the field of macromolecular engineering owing to its robustness, its high tolerance to a wide range of functional groups without any need of protecting groups and the absence of side-products. This reaction is known to be a very efficient “click” reaction as defined by Sharpless. The chemical modification of aliphatic polyesters remains, at the time being, a very difficult task to achieve because of the very limited number of efficient chemical reactions, which can be implemented in the absence of chain degradation. The main purpose of this contribution is to report on the most recent advances on the use of CuAAC to derivatize aliphatic polyesters (Scheme 1). Interestingly enough, it was recently shown that CuAAC carried out onto aliphatic polyesters attached with either azides or alkynes is very efficient under mild conditions, which limit undesirable degradation. Several functional groups were grafted onto aliphatic polyesters by CuAAC without using any protection/deprotection reactions. The CuAAC is also very efficient to prepare aliphatic polyesters with various architectures as highlighted by the synthesis of graft copolymers, star-shaped copolymers and networks. This “click” chemistry has been combined with other polymerization mechanism such as ATRP in order to extend further the range of available polymers. [less ▲]

During the past few years, a steadily increasing attention was paid to the synthesis of biodegradable and biocompatible aliphatic polyesters because of potential applications as biomaterials or as environmentally friendly thermoplastics. The first purpose of this work is to show that the modification of these aliphatic polyesters by pendant functional groups is an efficient tool to tailor the main properties, including biodegradation rate, bioadhesion, hydrophilicity, degree of crystallinity. The strategies implemented for the synthesis of aliphatic polyesters bearing pendant functional groups rely on the synthesis of g-substituted e-caprolactones followed by their ring-opening polymerization and on the chemical modification of duly functionalized aliphatic polyesters.The second part of the lecture will be dedicated to some recent examples dealing with the use of functional caprolactones to prepare various architectures such as star-shaped copolymers, graft copolymers, macrocycles and networks.

Nowadays, condensing technology is widely used in domestic heating. This paper presents a model that simulates the performance in steady-state regime of a domestic gas-fired condensing boiler. The model is similar to a conventional boiler model with a dry heat exchanger at which a wet heat exchanger is added to simulate the heat recovered by condensation. Experimental parameters are used to simulate the different components. The model has been applied to a 24 kW gas-fired condensing boiler test bench available in the laboratory. According to the experimental results (at full load), the model predicts correctly the thermal efficiency of the boiler. Indeed, calculated values are in good agreement with measured values.

Spray characterization, i. e. a velocity map of the liquid and gaseous phases and the sizing of the liquid droplet, remains of a great importance in different industrial applications such as in the automotive or pharmaceutical industries. Correlations capable to faster this characterization already exist. They allow the evaluation of the droplet Sauter Mean Diameter in a precise location of the spray using non-dimensional numbers involving physical and chemical properties of the liquid and the spray operative conditions. This paper concerns the possibility to include in the correlative laws also the effect of the liquid viscosity through the introduction of the Ohnesorge number (Oh). In order to achieve this goal an extensively experimentalcampaign is performed, by means of a Phase Doppler Interferometer, for size and velocity measurements in a full cone spray. Parameters as the hydraulic diameter of the nozzle, the operatingpressure and the liquid viscosity are varied in order to cover large range of Weber and Ohnesorge numbers. [less ▲]
