[more ▼]CoRoT and Kepler measurements reveal us that the amplitudes of solar-like oscillations detected in red giant stars scale from stars to stars in a characteristic way. This observed scaling relation is not yet fully understood but constitutes potentially a powerful diagnostic about mode physics. Quasi-adiabatic theoretical scaling relations in terms of mode amplitudes result in systematic and large differences with the measurements performed for red giant stars. The use of a non-adiabatic intensity-velocity relation derived from a non-adiabatic pulsation code significantly reduces the discrepancy with the CoRoT measurements. The origin of the remaining difference is still unknown. Departure from adiabatic eigenfunction is a very likely explanation that is investigated in the present work using a 3D hydrodynamical model of the surface layers of a representative red giant star.

[more ▼]Thanks to the CoRoT and Kepler spacecrafts, scaling relations (linking seismic indices and global stellar parameters) are becoming the cornerstone of ensemble asteroseismology. Among them, the relation between the cut-off frequency and the frequency of the maximum in the power spectrum of solar-like pulsators as well as the relation between mode lifetime and the effective temperature remain poorly understood. However, a solid theoretical background is essential to assess the accuracy of those relations and subsequently of the derived stellar parameters. We will thus present recent advances on the understanding of the underlying mechanisms governing those relations and show that the physics of mode lifetime (thus of mode damping) plays a major role.

[more ▼]The space missions CoRoT and Kepler provide high quality data that allow to test the transport of angular momentum in stars by the seismic determination of the internal rotation profile. Our aim is to test the validity of the seismic diagnostics for red giant rotation that are based on a perturbative method and to investigate the oscillation spectra when the validity does not hold. We use a non-perturbative approach implemented in the ACOR code [1] that accounts for the effect of rotation on pulsations, and solves the pulsations eigenproblem directly for dipolar oscillation modes. We find that the limit of the perturbation to first order can be expressed in terms of the core rotation and the period separation between consecutive dipolar modes. Above this limit, each family of modes with different azimuthal symmetry m, has to be considered separately. For rapidly rotating red giants, new seismic diagnostics can be found for rotation by exploiting the differences between the period spacings associated with each m-family of modes.

Tempête la plus dévastatrice depuis 1999, la forêt des Landes et ses pins maritimes paient un lourd tribut à ce phénomène extrême: 60% de la superficie est touchée, environ 40 millions de m3 de bois sont à terre, quatre fois la récolte annuelle. Il faudra attendre plusieurs mois avant que les aires de stockage par aspersion soient opérationnelles. Trop tard, le pin maritime montre déjà des signes de bleuissement de son bois, il est invendable sur les marchés à forte valeur ajoutée, là où l’esthétisme prime. Écarté des meilleurs débouchés, le lambris et le plancher, le manque à gagner est énorme.

[more ▼]Nonradial pulsations in Extreme Horizontal Branch stars (also known as hot B subdwarfs or sdB stars) offer strong opportunities to study through asteroseismology the structure and internal dynamics of stars in this intermediate stage of stellar evolution. Most sdB stars directly descend from former red giants and are expected to evolve straight into white dwarfs after core helium exhaustion. They thus represent the most direct link between these two stages. Their properties should therefore reflect both the outcome of the core evolution of red giant stars and the initial state for a fraction of the white dwarfs. We review the status of this field after a decade of efforts to exploit both p-mode and g-mode pulsating sdB stars as asteroseismic laboratories. From the discoveries of these two classes of pulsators in 1997 and 2003, respectively, up to the current epoch of data gathering of unprecedented quality from space, a lot of progress has been made in this area and prospects for future achievements look very promising.

[more ▼]We present a brief summary of what is currently known about white dwarf stars, with an emphasis on their evolutionary and internal properties. As is well known, white dwarfs represent the end products of stellar evolution for the vast majority of stars and, as such, bear the signatures of past events (such as mass loss, mixing phases, loss and redistribution of angular momentum, and thermonuclear burning) that are of essential importance in the evolution of stars in general. In addition, white dwarf stars represent ideal testbeds for our understanding of matter under extreme conditions, and work on their constitutive physics (neutrino production rates, conductive and radiative opacities, interior liquid/solid equations of state, partially ionized and partially degenerate envelope equations of state, diffusion coefficients, line broadening mechanisms) is still being actively pursued. Given a set of constitutive physics, cooling white dwarfs can be used advantageously as cosmochronometers. Moreover, the field has been blessed by the existence of four distinct families of pulsating white dwarfs, each mapping a different evolutionary phase, and this allows the application of the asteroseismological method to probe and test their internal structure and evolutionary state. We set the stage for the reviews that follow on cooling white dwarfs as cosmochronometers and physics laboratories, as well as on the properties of pulsating white dwarfs and the asteroseismological results that can be inferred.

[more ▼]Subdwarf B (sdB) stars are hot, compact, and evolved objects that form the very hot end of the horizontal branch, the so-called Extreme Horizontal Branch (EHB). Understanding the formation of sdB stars is one of the remaining challenges of stellar evo- lution theory. Several scenarios have been proposed to account for the existence of such objects, made of He-burning core surrounded by very thin H-rich envelope. They give quite different theoretical mass distributions for the resulting sdB stars. Detailed astero- seismic analyses, including mass estimates, of 15 pulsating hot B subdwarfs have been published since a decade. The masses have also been reliably determined by light curve modeling and spectroscopy for 7 sdB components of eclipsing and/or reflection effect binaries. These empirical mass distributions, although based on small-number statistics, can be compared with the expectations of stellar evolution theory. In particular, the two He white dwarfs merger scenario does not seem to be the dominant channel to form iso- lated sdB stars, while the post-red giant branch scenario is reinforced. This opens new questions on extreme mass loss of red giants to form EHB stars, possibly in connection with the recently discovered close substellar companions and planets orbiting sdB stars.

[more ▼]In response to wounding or herbivore attack, leaves and roots of higher plants release volatile organic compounds (VOCs). To date, VOCs analysis and plant−plant interaction studies have been mainly performed on aboveground plant tissues, leaving the roles played by root VOCs in plant−plant interaction unexplored. In this context, this project aims at setting up an original experimental device allowing both dynamic trapping of VOCs emitted by mechanically damaged H. distichon roots and the study of the roles played by root VOCs in intra and interspecific plant−plant interactions. The experimental device consists of Barley seedlings cultivated in closed PTFE reactors filled with wet sand. Before being analysed by gas chromatography−mass spectrometry, root VOCs are trapped via a dynamic system on Tenax cartridges using a charcoal-filtered and humidified air. Preliminary results show that 7 day-old wounded Barley roots emit C9 fatty acid derivatives (E-non-2-enal and nona-2,6-dienal) as major compounds, contrasting with aboveground plant tissues that mainly emit C6 alcohols, aldehydes, and their derivative esters. For plant−plant interaction studies, receiver plants are exposed to an airflow enriched with VOCs from root damaged Barley plants of the same age.

[more ▼]VOC (volatile organic compounds) include a wide set of molecules which are mostly emitted by the plants. Atmospheric scientists are strongly interested in these compounds because of their important role in the atmospheric chemistry and their final impact on air pollution and climate change. Evaluation of current and future VOC emissions is thus necessary and requires a comprehensive understanding of VOC production and exchange dynamics under a wide panel of climatic conditions and ecosystems. Forest and non pastured grasslands have been largely studied for the last decade. However, knowledge about VOC fluxes from croplands remains scarce. Our study focuses on the VOC exchanges between a maize field and the atmosphere. It is incorporated in a wider project that aims to study VOC fluxes from two croplands (maize and winter wheat) and a pastured grassland. VOC fluxes have been measured on a maize field during the whole growing season using a micrometeorological method (eddy covariance). While first results show half-hourly bidirectionnal exchanges among all the preselected compounds, in average methanol stands for the greatest emitted VOC, followed by green leaf volatiles, and acetic acid is the greatest taken up VOC. Small isoprene and monoterpenes fluxes are also observed. A diurnal pattern is found for all those VOC, with greater emission/uptake during the day, suggesting a flux dependence on environmental parameters. These environmental controls will be further investigated [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 143 (20 ULg) Lepton flavor violation and seesaw symmetriesAristizabal Sierra, Diego in Hyperfine Interactions (2013, February), 214When the standard model is extended with right-handed neutrinos the symmetries of the resulting Lagrangian are enlarged with a new global U(1)R Abelian factor.

[more ▼]When the standard model is extended with right-handed neutrinos the symmetries of the resulting Lagrangian are enlarged with a new global U(1)R Abelian factor. In the context of minimal seesaw models we analyze the implications of a slightly broken U(1)R symmetry on charged lepton flavor violating decays. We find, depending on the R-charge assignments, models where charged lepton flavor violating rates can be within measurable ranges. In particular, we show that in the resulting models due to the structure of the light neutrino mass matrix muon flavor violating decays are entirely determined by neutrino data (up to a normalization factor) and can be sizable in a wide right-handed neutrino mass range.

[more ▼]Based on the impairment of erythropoietin production after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), we previously reported in a phase-2 trial that recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) therapy was very efficient when started one month after transplantation. We also demonstrated that anemia after nonmyeloabalative (NM) HCT was less sensitive to rhEPO therapy than after conventional allogeneic HCT. This prompted us to confirm these findings in a prospective randomised trial. One hundred and thirty-one patients were randomised (1:1) between no treatment (arm 1) or erythropoietin (Neorecormon) at the dose of 500 U/kg/week (arm 2). Once the target Hb (13g/dL) has been attained, the dose of rhEPO was reduced by half, while it was withheld when Hb was = 14g/dL. Cohort A included 42 patients on day 28 after myeloablative HCT, cohort B 39 patients on day 28 after NMHCT, and cohort C 50 patients on day 0 of NMHCT. Primary endpoints included proportion of complete correctors (i.e. patients reaching Hb = 13g/dL) and median time to achieve Hb correction in each arm. The proportion of complete correctors before day 126 posttransplant was 0% in group 1A vs 52.4% in group 2A, 0% in group 1B vs 69.5% in group 2B and 19.1% in group 1C vs 70.2% in group 2C. Median time to achieve Hb = 13g/dL was not reached in group 1B vs 49 days in group 2B; 363 and 59 days in groups 1A and 1B respectively and 363 and 87 days in groups 3A and 3B respectively (figure 1). Hb evolution in each group is shown in figure 2. Seventyone patients (47/62 in control groups and 24/57 in treated groups, p=0.0003) required red blood cell transfusions. The difference was most pronounced in cohort B. There was no difference in rates of thrombo-embolic events or other complications between the two arms. In conclusion, this is the first trial to demonstrate that EPO therapy hastens erythroid recovery and decreases transfusion requirements when started one month after allogeneic HCT.

[more ▼]The saddle gall midge, Haplodiplosis marginata (von Roser, 1840) is a univoltine pest of cereals which occurs in Europe. The larvae feed on stems and attractive saddle-shaped depressions, driving to important yield losses when the galls are numerous. After 40 years without any reporting, large populations of H. marginata and important damage have been observed since 2010 in wheat crops in Belgium, especially in the Flemish Polders where clay soils and intensive farming of cereals favour heavy infestations. According to some research conducted in the 1960s during the last outbreak, oat (Avena sativa L.) is known to be one of the less favourable hosts to the saddle gall midge. Our study was performed in order to assess the host sensitivity of three oat varieties currently grown in Belgium: EVITA, EFFEKTIV and FREDDY. Therefore, oat varieties were sown on infested soil in two separate enclosures in a glasshouse. In the first enclosure, only the three oat varieties were grown; in the second one, these three oat varieties were grown together with two varieties of spring wheat: GRANNY and KWS CHAMSIN. Two parameters were measured: the percentage of leaves with laid eggs, and the number of galls per stem. The percentage of leaves with eggs showed that the infestation was significantly lower on oats when they were in presence of wheat. The egg infestation was also significantly higher on wheat than on oat, which means oat is a much less favourable host plant than spring wheat for egg laying. Oat varieties were significantly different from each other regarding the number of galls per stem, but with very little damage compared to wheat. The FREDDY variety even seemed to be completely resistant to saddle gall midge, as no galls were observed although there was a similar percentage of leaves with eggs for the three oat varieties. Cropping oat could thus contribute to reduce infestations of H. marginata.

[more ▼]In this paper we introduce and study a new property of infinite words which is invariant under the action of a morphism: We say an infinite word x, defined over a finite alphabet A, is self-shuffling if x admits factorizations: x=\prod_{i=1}^\infty U_iV_i=\prod_{i=1}^\infty U_i=\prod_{i=1}^\infty V_i with U_i,V_i \in \A^+. In other words, there exists a shuffle of x with itself which reproduces x. The morphic image of any self-shuffling word is again self-shuffling. We prove that many important and well studied words are self-shuffling: This includes the Thue-Morse word and all Sturmian words (except those of the form aC where a is a letter and C is a characteristic Sturmian word). We further establish a number of necessary conditions for a word to be self-shuffling, and show that certain other important words (including the paper-folding word and infinite Lyndon words) are not self-shuffling. In addition to its morphic invariance, which can be used to show that one word is not the morphic image of another, this new notion has other unexpected applications: For instance, as a consequence of our characterization of self-shuffling Sturmian words, we recover a number theoretic result, originally due to Yasutomi, which characterizes pure morphic Sturmian words in the orbit of the characteristic.

[more ▼]Risk factors for valvular regurgitations (VR) have been suspected in equids, but no extensive epidemiologic study has been performed in a large mixed equine population. Therefore, the aim of this study was to statistically test risk factors for VR in a large population of equids. Hospital records were reviewed for 3.499 equids, admitted at the internal medicine department of the Liege Equine Teaching Hospital between 1994 and 2011, aged ≥2 years, and which underwent thorough cardiac clinical evaluation. Of this population, 495 cases had ECG and echocardiography performed because of a clinical suspicion of cardiac disease. Chi-square test or logistic regressions (as appropriate) were used to test if breed, gender, age, body weight (BW), and co-existence of various cardiac diseases were risk factors for each VR. Moreover, the risk of development of congestive heart failure (CHF) was tested for each VR. Significance was set at p<0.05. Most of the studied animals were warmbloods, and observed prevalences were 4.4% for mitral regurgitation (MR), 2.1% for aortic regurgitation (AR), 1.7% for tricuspid regurgitation (TR), and 1.0% for pulmonary regurgitation (PR). Significant risk factors were male gender and increasing age for AR (OR=2.03, CI=1.07-4.94), and racehorses breed group and middle-age for TR (OR=4.36; CI=1.10-17.24). No effect of age or BW was demonstrated for MR. MR was the major valvular disease associated with atrial fibrillation (AF), ventricular tachyarrhythmia, PR and CHF. TR was also linked to AF, PR and CHF; but AR was not linked to CHF. In conclusion, several previously suspected risks factors for VR were confirmed statistically in this study and should be taken into account in health and athletic monitoring of horses presenting predisposing factors.

[more ▼]Additive manufacturing processes such as laser cladding (LC) or selective laser melting (SLM) appear very promising in view of an economic near-net-shape production – and also, in the case of LC, the restoration - of complex and (almost) fully dense parts from Ti alloys. Both techniques involve the melting of a metallic powder with a laser. In the SLM process, the metallic powder is deposited layer by layer in a powder bed and then molten locally according to the desired shape, whereas in LC, the metallic powder is directly projected onto a substrate through a nozzle coaxial with the laser beam. The present research aims at comparing Ti-6Al-4V samples processed by these two techniques with reference samples produced by electron beam melting (EBM), another well established additive manufacturing process (patented by Arcam AB Company) in which a powder bed is molten locally by means of an electron beam. In all three processes, the melt pool undergoes an ultrafast cooling and solidifies very rapidly once the beam has left the area, thus giving rise to strongly out-of-equilibrium microstructures. Yet, each one of these processes also has its own specificities e.g. in terms of scanning strategy and of working atmosphere (low vacuum vs. protective Ar flow). In the present work, the microstructures obtained by these three processes have been compared in details, with a particular attention for characteristics such as porosity, grain size, and the various phases present. Since epitaxial growth of the newly deposited layer on the material previously solidified has been shown [1, 2] to exert a strong influence on the microstructure and on the resulting mechanical properties, great care has been taken to study the microstructural anisotropy associated with each one of the three processes.

[more ▼]Bimetallic rolls used in the roughing stands of the Hot Strip Mill require mixed properties as a high wear resistance for the shell material and an enhanced toughness for the core material. The bimetallic roll studied in this paper is obtained from a vertical spin casting process followed by cooling and subsequent heat treatments. Failure of the compound roll sometimes occurs during the cooling stage of the casting route or later during the thermal treatments. It requires to deeply investigate the thermo mechanical metallurgical interactions generated during cooling and heat treatment in order to find the origin of cracks. For this purpose, a thermo metallurgic mechanical finite element model is used. However these numerical simulations require a high amount of mechanical, thermal and metallurgical parameters. In order to determinate these parameters, a study of available data for estimation of mechanical parameters was performed. Thermo physical parameters were obtained by DTA and DSC methods. Metallurgical characterization by inverse numerical method based on available CCT diagrams was performed to determine the TTT diagrams. First cooling numerical simulations are presented, allowing a rough estimate of residual stresses values and the identification of key parameters for predicting accurate residual stresses by sensitivity analysis.

[more ▼]CADY is a cell-penetrating peptide spontaneously making non-covalent complexes with short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) in water. Neither the structure of CADY nor that of the complexes is resolved. We have calculated and analyzed 3D models of CADY and of the non-covalent CADY–siRNA complexes in order to understand their formation and stabilization. Data from the ab initio calculations and molecular dynamics support that, in agreement with the experimental data, CADY is a polymorphic peptide partly helical. We calculated and compared several complexes with peptide/siRNA ratios of up to 40. The initial binding of CADYs is essentially due to the electrostatic interactions of the arginines with siRNA phosphates. Due to a repetitive arginine motif (XLWR(K)), CADYs can adopt multiple positions at the siRNA surface. Nevertheless, several complex properties are common: an average of 14 ± 1 CADYs is required to saturate a siRNA. The 40 CADYs/siRNA that is the optimal ratio for vector stability always corresponds to two layers of CADYs per siRNA and the peptide cage is stabilized by hydrophobic CADY–CADY contacts. The analysis demonstrates that the hydrophobicity, the positive charges and the polymorphism of CADY are mandatory to make stable the CADY–siRNA complexes.

[more ▼]A sharp increase in extreme heat and drought stress is projected in Belgium by the end of the 21st century, with the potential to signiﬁcantly reduce crops’ yields under current agricultural practices. This contribution uses an agro-hydrological model in order to assess the potential effects of climate evolution on crop development, yield, and water balance for the main agricultural productions in the Meuse catchment. Erosion risk is also evaluated. We show that grasslands and maize yield decrease and yield variability increases under climate change scenarios. The leaf area index study permits to put in emphasis the earlier start of the vegetation due to warmer climate. It appears that all the sensitive stages occur earlier in the season and that crops are negatively affected by summer drought stress. The better understanding of crops development under evolving climate allows us to propose some changes in agricultural practices and to assess their effectiveness. We evaluate different strategies of adaptation in agricultural practices in order to reduce the potential negative effects of climate change on grasslands and maize production. Adaptation strategies proposed are advanced sowing and harvesting date, introduction of a cover crop for maize and advance in the cutting dates for grasslands. In the particular case of the Vesdre catchment, shifting the growth period of maize permits to avoid the water-deﬁcit period and allow increased yield. This shift makes it possible to introduce a cover crop that will drastically reduce winter soil erosion. For grassland, the adjustment of the cutting dates favored the ﬁrst cut and the earlier start of the vegetation. The second cut is less proﬁtable due to summer drought stress. The vulnerability assessments focused on the main rotation encountered in the cultivated areas and in the difference in the cover type of these crops.

[more ▼]Water flow in the plant continuum is thought to be controlled by the leaf, xylem and the root radial conductances. Leaf conductance is widely recognized as the master control in the system as it can act as a switch in the water flow, even under high transpiration demand. The control of the stomatal aperture by the plant has been the object of numerous research projects since decades and different models have been developed to study stomatal regulation. The plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) produced in the leaves acts as an endogenous signal triggering stomatal closure, but is also thought to act as a long distance signal that is produced by roots experiencing water deficit. However, the relative contributions of leaf-supplied ABA, root-supplied ABA and xylem water potential in the regulation of water flow remains a matter of controversy. Using a novel functional structural plant model (PlaNet-Maize-ABA), we report here a first attempt to explicitly simulate ABA production, degradation, translocation in all plant organs and their effect on the transpiration flow.

It has the advantages of both spectral splitting and solar concentration by the combination of a blaze transmission diffraction grating and a flat cylindrical Fresnel lens. An optical optimization has been realized and two variations of configuration have been developed to improve tracking tolerance: first, a design completed by secondary reflective concentrators and second, a symmetrical configuration composed of two lenses. First numerical results are presented, highlighting the possibility to design a concentrator at about 10×, with an electrical output power about 290W/m² lens and less than 10% losses for tracking errors lower than ±0.9°.

[more ▼]The long-term survival of the Endangered bonobo (IUCN, 2012) will depend on well thought out conservation programmes that need to be built both upon the species’ ecological requirements and local socio-economics realities. Yet there is still a lot to find out, including information on the species geographical distribution. In 2005, the presence of a western population was confirmed in the forest-savannah mosaic in the south-western part of the Lake Tumba Landscape. With the exception of an early study carried out in Lukuru, the species is mainly known from lowland rainforest research sites in the Cuvette Centrale. The western forest-savannah mosaic is an ecotone with a marked seasonal pattern, a high variability of habitats and monthly variations in fruit production. All this leads to spatio-temporal variation of food availability. In order to increase studies and monitoring of this unique population, WWF initiated a habituation process of two groups of bonobos 6 years ago. The groups are now semi-habituated, making the collection of direct daily observations possible. Our objective is to describe the behavioural strategies developed by this population in order to cope with spatio-temporal variations of food availability. This will be approached by identifying daily activity, ranging and grouping patterns, in order to understand how they affect social structure. It should also allow us to define the use of savannahs. Our findings will help determine specific conservations measures for this endangered species.

Although on an apparent level mu FE has successfully been validated against experiments, local validations are sparse and limited by imaging resolution. At the tissue level heterogeneity of Young's modulus has been reported. Although non-uniform material distribution have been shown to only have a minor influence on the apparent material properties, its impact on local material behaviour is largely unknown. By combining image-guided failure assessment (IGFA) using synchrotron-based-micro-computed tomography, strain mapping and inverse mu FE modelling, we present an experimental and computational framework which will allow studying local effects of intratrabecular heterogeneity of the Young's modulus.

[more ▼]Despite their importance for many astrophysical processes, massive stars are still not fully understood. Massive binaries offer an attractive way to improve our knowledge of the fundamental properties of these objects. However, some secondary effects are known to generate variations in the spectra of massive binaries, rendering their analyses more difficult. We present here a new approach to the computation of synthetic spectra of massive binaries at different phases of their orbital cycle. Our model starts with the Roche potential modified by radiation pressure and accounts for the influence of the companion star on the shape and physical properties of the stellar surface. We further account for gravity darkening and reflection effects to compute the surface temperature. Once the local gravity and temperature are determined, we interpolate in a grid of NLTE plan-parallel atmosphere model spectra to obtain the local contribution to the spectrum at each surface points. Then we sum all the contributions, accounting for the Doppler shift, and limb-darkening to obtain the total spectrum. The computation is repeated for different orbital phases and can be compared to the observations to determine the best parameters. We illustrate our method through the example of the LZ Cep system (O9III + ON9.7V).

[more ▼]The recent UNESCO Recommendations on the historic hurban landscape insist on the opportunity to "shift from an emphasis on architectural monuments primarly" towards "a landscape approach" including "the broader urban context and its geographical setting", to understand historic urban landscape "as the result of a historic layerling, and to create new tools to adress this vision". Along this line of thought of thought, the proposed approach expands the traditional contents of architectural guides, providing keys to reconsider and evaluate the listed works' contribution to the evolution of their immediate surrounding, to the urban structure as a whole, up to the territorial scale. Moving from a design-oriented perspective and using the methods of urban morphology, the work consists mainly of set of original schemes, maps and drawings of Liège and its neighborhoods, as means to reveal the urban structure, its layerling over time, and the role of architectural heritage in clarifuing, enhancing, or even degrading the coherence of the urban artifact. Halfway between popular and scholarly literature, the forthcoming guides aim to become at both times "handbooks for city decoding" and blueprints for urban design. Providing tools lo read, comprehehen, and appreciate the part played by built heritage in a city's evolution and in the shaping of our daily environment helps to understand urban environments as a process bearing the overlapping influences of many experiments, partially implemented plans, competing visions and contradictory ideas. As a result, both the ordinary and specialized audience can possibly raise their awareness and perception of modernist architecture's legacy, but also learn how certain qualities were achieved and how certain local issues came about, acquiring relevant critical keys to take part as stakeholders or designers in the debate over the future city.

[more ▼]Due to the depletion of fossil fuels and the increase of greenhouse gas emissions, solutions are needed to replace petrol based products. As a consequence, the number of biobased products developed using agricultural feedstock is continuously increasing. This study focuses on the carbon footprint of bio-HDPE produced either from Brazilian sugar cane or Belgian sugar beet. The goal of this study is to compare the carbon footprint of bio-HDPE with the fossil one, taking into account the effect of land use change. Common boundaries of the agricultural systems comprise the cultivation step for both crops, i.e. sugar cane and sugar beet, with all associated energy and fertilizer consumptions, the transportation step from field to the industrial plant, the sugar crops transformation into hydrate bioethanol, the by-products valorisation, the dehydration and polymerization steps and the HDPE incineration as end of life issue. Fossil scenario includes the production of ethylene, its polymerization and its incineration. When comparing the entire life cycle of bio and fossil HDPE, the GHG emissions are lower for the biobased product which is the willing effect. This result is only valid if no Land Use Change (LUC) or Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) effect appears. To assess the environmental impact of the deforestation or of the transformation of a pasture into a field, the EC-Guidelines from the European Union were used in order to calculate the CO2 emissions depending on several parameters. For sugar cane, LUC consists in the transformation of pastures into fields in the region of Sao Paulo in Brazil. Three scenarios can be developed based on different agricultural practices for pasture and field (tillage and fertilizers inputs): the best, the worst and the average. The best case leads to a supplementary environmental gain. The worst and average achieve additional emissions. A payback time, considering the time needed to find again an environmental gain compared to the fossil counterpart, was calculated for the average scenario which is equal to 12 years. The ILUC effect for sugar cane is assumed to be deforestation due to the transformation of forest into pasture induced by the previous LUC effect. The rate of deforestation can vary between 16% or 100% depending on used statistics and leads to a payback time of respectively 26 and 101 years. For sugar beet, no LUC is considered. Indeed, no land expansion is available in Belgium due to small available areas. In the case of an increase of bioplastics production, Belgium should import sugar beet from neighboring countries which can induce ILUC. In this study, sugar beet is assumed to be provided by the Netherlands on pastures previously transformed into fields. The average scenario implies a payback time of 8 years. This study permits to highlight the importance of LUC and ILUC especially for energetic crops dedicated to replace fossil products. This effect can reverse expected results and induce long payback times.

[more ▼]To better understand the agricultural landscapes evolution becomes an essential preoccupation and, for this, it is needed to take into account the sediments deposition, in a distributed way. As it is not possible in practice to study all terrestrial surfaces in detail by instrumenting sectors to obtain data, models of prediction are valuable tools to control the current problems, to predict the future tendencies and to provide a scientific base to the political decisions. In our case, a landscape evolution model is needed, which aims at representing both erosion and sedimentation and dynamically adjusts the landscape to erosion and deposition by modifying the initial digital elevation model. The Landsoil model (Landscape design for Soil conservation under soil use and climate change), among others, could fulfil this objective. It has the advantage to take the soil variability into account. This model, designed for the analysis of agricultural landscape, is suitable for simulations from parcel to catchment scale, is spatially distributed and event-based. Observed quantitative data are essential (notably to calibrate the model) but still limited. Particularly, we lack observations spatially distributed on the watershed. For this purpose, we choose a watershed in Belgium (Wallonia) which is a 124 ha agricultural zone in the loamy region. Its slopes range from 0% to 9%. To test the predictions of the model, comparisons will be done with: - sediment measurements which are done with water samplings in four points on the site to compare the net erosion results; - sediment selective measurements (depth variation observed along graduated bares placed on site) to compare the erosion and deposition results; - very accurate DSM’s (6,76 cm pixel resolution X-Y) obtained by the drone (Gatewing X100) each winter. Besides planning what the landscape evolution should be, a revision of the soil map (drew in 1958) is organized to compare with the past situation and establish how the landscape moved in 50 years. The first results of the sediment measurements and of the pictures of the drone will be showed in the presentation.

[more ▼]La décision de la commission européenne de mettre fin en 2015 à la politique des quotas laitiers mise en place en 1984 va vraisemblablement bousculer le paysage laitier européen mais aussi mondial. Plus que jamais les grands pays producteurs (Etats-Unis, Canada, France, Allemagne, Pays-Bas, Irlande, Nouvelle-Zélande) vont dans ce contexte de libéralisation et de globalisation de « l’or blanc » se livrer une concurrence effrénée dans laquelle la majorité des producteurs n’auront que peu ou rien à dire. L’augmentation attendue de la production laitière mondiale (15 milliards de litres par an entre 2010 et 2020) résulte bien entendu de l’augmentation de la population mondiale (3,1 milliards entre 1970 et 2010 auxquels s’ajouteront 2 milliards de plus en 2050) mais également du fait que davantage de personnes en Extrême et Moyen-Orient, en Amérique du Sud et en Afrique du Nord consomment davantage de lait et de produits dérivés. L’enjeu pour la majorité des éleveurs européens ou non va être de réduire les coûts liés à la production laitière en (1) optimisant les ressources alimentaires, (2) en améliorant la santé mammaire, (3) en augmentant la longévité des vaches, (4) en réduisant la fréquence des maladies métaboliques, locomotrices ou infectieuses et (5) en améliorant la fécondité. L’amélioration de la fécondité passe définition oblige par la réduction de l’âge du premier vêlage et de l’intervalle entre vêlages. Par gestion, il faut entendre dans un premier temps la quantification du problème et dans un second l’identification des diverses hypothèses diagnostiques qui en sont responsables. Les facteurs de nature alimentaire, thérapeutique, pathologique ou de gestion susceptibles de modifier l'évolution normale de chaque femelle depuis sa naissance jusqu'au moment de sa réforme sont de nature diverse. Ils concernent l'individu ou le troupeau. Ils sont directement ou indirectement responsables de leur fertilité et/ou de leur fécondité. Leurs effets se manifestent de manière isolée ou synergique. Ils concernent aussi bien les animaux que ceux qui en ont la responsabilité sanitaire ou de gestion. Ils sont de nature anatomique, infectieuse, hormonale, thérapeutique ou zootechnique. Par gestion de la reproduction, il faut entendre une approche épidémiologique, globale de l’infécondité qui en intègre les aspects spécifiques sans négliger pour autant les autres aspects qui ne lui sont pas directement liés. Par gestion de la reproduction, on peut aussi comprendre sa gestion hormonale à savoir le recours à des protocoles thérapeutiques de synchronisation des inséminations et donc des vêlages. L’une et l’autre approche s’inscrive dans le contexte d’une identification systématique des animaux à risque au travers d’un suivi mensuel de reproduction. Ce suivi est la clé de voûte d’une gestion de la reproduction. Au travers d’une démarche hypothético-déductive, la présente communication se propose de - quantifier les performances de reproduction au travers des ses principaux paramètres de fécondité et de fertilité : cette première étape est indispensable pour identifier la présence ou non d’un problème d’infécondité, - passer en revue et de manière aussi synthétique que possible les diverses hypothèses et donc les facteurs de risque responsables d’infécondité - proposer des stratégies curatives ou préventives, anti-infectieuses ou hormonales voire zootechniques pour limiter les conséquences de l’infécondité.

[more ▼]Background: Measurement of CSF albumin aids diagnosis in human medicine but technical difficulties related to its low CSF concentration prohibit its routine use in veterinary medicine. High-resolution electrophoresis (HRE) has been described but often results in non-interpretable integration profiles preventing albumin determination. Fraction quantification using HRE may be more precise after concentration (cHRE) using a membrane microconcentrator technique but has not been evaluated in CSF with total protein levels below 20mg/dL. Immunoturbidimetry is routinely used for human CSF albumin measurement and was recently applied on canine samples with encouraging results. Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare HRE (including the use of a concentration step) and immunoturbidimetric assay for the measurement of albumin levels in normal canine CSF. Methods: 30 CSF specimens from 15 healthy dogs were evaluated. CSF total protein was measured by the pyrogallol red methoda and CSF albumin was determined by HREb (n=15), cHREc (n=30) and immunoturbidimetric assayd (n=30). Validation of the human immunoturbidimetric assay was performed using a purified canine albumin standarde. Results: Mean CSF total protein was 17.5 (range 7-39) mg/dL. HRE integration profiles were non-interpretable in all unconcentrated specimens. However, clear distinction of the major protein fractions was achieved for all cHRE specimens. CSF albumin levels were measureable in 29/30 specimens using immunoturbidimetry. Excellent correlation (Pearson r=0.92, p<0.001) was found between the two techniques. Conclusion: Immunoturbidimetry and cHRE may be used for routine measurement of CSF albumin.

[more ▼]Post-combustion CO2 capture in power plants is one of the most mature technologies for a short-term and large-scale decrease of CO2 emissions while simultaneously addressing the growing global energy demand. CO2 is chemically absorbed in an amine solvent that can be regenerated at higher temperature, producing a pure CO2 stream. However, the large impact of this technology on the power plant efficiency and the environmental penalty are the main drawbacks for large-scale implementation. In this work, an innovative approach combining process modeling and evaluation of the environmental penalty due to amine degradation is presented. Based on experimental results, the kinetics of solvent oxidative and thermal degradation is estimated and included in the process model developed in Aspen Plus. Using this model, the influence of operating parameters like the oxygen concentration in the flue gas or the solvent regeneration pressure is studied. This model is a first step for a multi-objective optimization of the CO2 capture process, assessing both energy and environmental penalties of this technology.
