An experimental study aimed at re-flotation of laid down tailings from Kipushi (DRC) to bring sulphide concentrate suitable for further processing by hydrometallurgical means has been realized. The results from a bioleaching route chosen to accomplish the later task by use of moderate thermophilic and mesophilic microorganisms are reported. It has been found that due to the complexity of the treated material, the leaching pattern of the two principal metals of interest, copper and zinc vary. Whilst the copper bearing minerals have been leached relatively fast by direct mechanism, the leaching kinetics for the zinc minerals has been moderate involving predominantly an indirect mechanism. The effects of pH and temperature variations and ferrous ions addition upon the extent of copper and zinc dissolution have been examined. The presence of ferrous ions has been found beneficial for the leaching of sphalerite, however the concomitant formation of jarosite precipitates has led to copper leaching hindrance. Similarly, the rapid zinc solubilisation has been counterbalanced by decrease in rate of copper dissolution. [less ▲]

In this paper, we report progress towards a 3D finite element model for the magnetization of a high-temperature superconductor (HTS): we suggest a method that takes into account a power law conductivity and demagnetization effects, while neglecting the effects associated with currents that are not perpendicular to the local magnetic induction. We consider samples that are subjected to a uniform magnetic field varying linearly with time. Their magnetization is calculated by means of a weak formulation in the magnetostatic approximation of the Maxwell equations (A–φ formulation). An implicit method is used for the temporal resolution (backward Euler scheme) and is solved with the open source solver GetDP. Fixed point iterations are used to deal with the power law conductivity of HTS. The finite element formulation is validated for an HTS tube with large n value by comparing with results obtained with other well-established methods. We show that carrying out the calculations with a single time-step (as opposed to many small time-steps) produces results with excellent accuracy in a drastically reduced simulation time. The numerical method is extended to the study of the trapped magnetization of cylinders that are drilled with different arrays of columnar holes arranged parallel to the cylinder axis. [less ▲]

Through the well-known drama of soldiers shot as a warning to others, "Paths of Glory" seemed an angry denunciation of the French army, in spite of Kubrick’s statement that his real aim was any form of militarism. Issued in 1958, the film was not distributed in France, then in the midst of the Algerian conflict. Through pressures, demonstrations and threats, some Frenchmen and French sympathizers tried – in vain – to extend the ban to Liege and Brussels screens. They provoked in turn vigorous reactions, which extended far outside the traditional antimilitarist circles. French-speaking Belgium, invoking freedom of expression, refused to be treated as a French cultural or political protectorate. [less ▲]

About 9,500 new breast cancers are diagnosed in Belgium every year. Improvement of our knowledge of altered molecular events leading to the proliferation of tumor cells has resulted in the development of targeted therapies in subgroups of cancers. One of the first validation of targeted therapy is the anti-HER-2 monoclonal antibody trastuzumab (Herceptin) in patients with overexpression of human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2) occurring in 20 to 25% of invasive breast carcinoma. Trastuzumab binds the extracellular juxtamembrane domain and is only active in tumor with HER2 gene amplification detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The results from randomized trials have rapidly lead to the approvement of the drug in the metastatic and then in the adjuvant setting. Another targeted therapy, also approved in the treatment of breast cancer, is the monoclonal antibody bevacizumab with an anti-VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) activity. We will review the benefit of these targeted therapies in breast cancer and their role in the treatment of breast cancer. [less ▲]

Cet article étudie l’œuvre multimédia de Bruno Latour "Paris Ville invisible", une œuvre qui permet de réfléchir sur une nouvelle manière de pratiquer la théorie sociologique à travers différents types d’images et d’écritures : panoramas, photographies aériennes, plans de la ville, textes écrits, etc. Cette œuvre a comme but de construire, à partir de la « procession » d’images des parcours de la Ville Lumière, une théorie sociologique où le mot théorie ne signifie pas « modèle » ou « contemplation », mais récupère son sens étymologique de « processions d’ambassadeurs allant consulter les oracles ». "Paris Ville Invisible" ne construit pas seulement la biogéographie d’une ville, ni se borne à proposer une nouvelle théorie du social, mais exemplifie, à travers le support multimédia, des nouvelles pratiques du faire scientifique.

Recent events such as natural catastrophes or terrorism attacks have highlighted the necessity to ensure the structural integrity of buildings under exceptional events. Design requirements are proposed in some codes but are generally not satisfactory. In particular, it is not demonstrated that, even if these requirements are respected, a structure subjected to an exceptional event will really behave properly. A European RFCS project called “Robust structures by joint ductility” has been set up in 2004, for three years, with the aim to provide requirements and practical guidelines so as to ensure the structural integrity of steel and composite structures under exceptional events through an appropriate robustness. The investigations performed at the University of Liège, as part of this European project, are mainly dedicated to the exceptional event “loss of a column in a steel or steel-concrete composite building frame”; the main objective is to develop a simplified analytical procedure to predict the frame response further to a column loss. The development of this simplified procedure is detailed in two complementary PhD theses: the thesis of Demonceau J.-F. and the thesis of Luu N.N.H. Present paper describes experimental and analytical studies carried out in [Demonceau, 2008]. In particular, a simplified analytical procedure for the prediction of the global frame response when significant membrane forces develop further to a column loss will be described; it allows: (i) to predict the development of the catenary action in a frame with joints subjected to combined bending moment and tension loads and (ii) to compute the requested rotation capacity at the joint level according to the loads applied on the frame.

As more and more (principally free) Linux PC-distributions (commonly called “distro’s”) are appearing on the Internet, a lack is observed for handhelds’ Linux distributions, especially for Pocket PC’s (C). This article summarizes the most important (and recent) points about this fact, and tries to cover the whole subject with not-too-technical details, giving a basical overview about the different O.S. which are available for handhelds devices.
