The present article describes the existing methods and recommendations for the evaluation of temperature profiles in steel beams and joints covered by a concrete slab. Then, modifications and improvements to the existing methods are proposed in order to predict more accurately temperatures at the level of the top flange of the beam by accounting for heat fluxes between the steel elements and the concrete slab. The two methods presented in this article differ by the degree of simplicity, the field of applicability and the accuracy of the predicted results. Comparisons with numerical simulations performed in the finite element program SAFIR have been described for the validation of these new methods. It is assumed in these numerical models that the contact between the steel profile and the concrete slab is perfect. The “original” Lumped Capacity Method gives globally good predictions of temperature in steel and composite beams and joints but does not integrate heat fl uxes between the steel elements and the concrete slab. This leads to an over-estimation of temperature in the steel elements during the heating phase and to an under-estimation of temperature during the cooling phase. In order to take these fluxes into consideration in the evaluation of the top flange temperature, it is suggested in the first proposed method to integrate a part of the concrete slab into the heated surface or volume considered in the Lumped Capacitance Method. The Composite Section Method correctly predicts temperature at the level of the top flange under ISO fire or during the heating phase of parametrical fire curves but a delay is observed between these analytical results and those obtained from numerical simulations performed in SAFIR software. In a second method, called Heat Exchange Method, it is proposed to calculate separately the heat fluxes between, on one side, the top flange and, on the other side, the gases of the compartment, the rest of the steel section and the concrete slab. The temperatures given by this latter method are in very good agreement with those obtained from FE models. The use of this method is really less fastidious than the use of FE models, especially for joints, but is limited to a certain type of fire curves (parametrical fire curves defined in the Annex A of the EN 1991-1-2). Finally, a bilinear temperature profi le has been proposed to interpolate the analytically-calculated temperatures at the level of the top and bottom flanges on the total height. This procedure is simple and shows a good agreement with the numerical results in 2-D beam sections and 3-D joint zones during the heating and cooling phases of parametric fire curves. [less ▲]

La planification du tracé du réseau routier est une étape importante en exploitation forestière tropicale mais de nombreuses contraintes y sont associées en vue d’une gestion durable des ressources forestières. La FAO a notamment édité un code d’Exploitation à Faible Impact (EFI) reprenant un ensemble de normes dont l’une des principales est la limitation des pentes maximales des routes principales (12 %) et secondaires (30 %). Cependant, à l’heure actuelle, la mise en place des routes est un travail long et fastidieux résultant de la combinaison d’une reconnaissance de terrain et d’un tracé manuel sur des cartes topographiques souvent imprécises et présentant de nombreuse erreurs. Comme alternative à la réalisation de cette opération, nous avons testé les possibilités d’utilisation des Modèles Numériques de Surface (MNS) tels qu’ASTER et SRTM. Malgré leur résolution relativement grossière (respectivement 30 et 90 m). Ces MNS offrent des informations sur le relief pour la quasi-totalité des terres émergées. Nous avons montré qu’une approche de calcul de pente directionnel permettait une relativement bonne approximation de ces dernières. De plus, les différentes analyses réalisées montrent que SRTM surpasse ASTER à tous les niveaux. L’optimisation du réseau routier à l’aide de MNS est donc une opération potentiellement intéressante.

In the prospect of the Cassia tora leaves meal recovering as a protein ingredient source for diets of Senegal indigenous chickens, a study was carried out to determine their nutrient utilisation and nutritional value. Twenty adult Senegal indigenous chickens were housed in metabolic cages and allotted in four groups of five birds each. The groups were corresponding to four dietary treatments (CT0, CT5, CT10 and CT15) containing respectively 0, 5, <br />10 and 15% of cassia leaves meal in substitution of groundnut cake meal. The cassia leaves are relatively rich in protein (27.4% DM), crude fibre (16.8% DM), NDF (25.7% DM) and ash (15.2% DM), particularly in calcium (3.1%) and potassium (1.3% DM). It contained 3.8% DM, 36.8% DM and 2050.47kcal/kg DM of ether extract, nitrogen-free extract and metabolizable <br />energy, respectively. Except for fat, the inclusion of Cassia tora leaves meal in the indigenous poultry diets until 15% has no significant adverse effect on nutrient and energy utilization, feed intake, average daily weight gain and feed conversion of the Senegal indigenous poultry. It significantly improved the crude fibre and ash utilization from 5% dietary treatment (CT5). [less ▲]

In the context of exoplanet detection, a large majority of the 400 detected exoplanets have been found by indirect methods. Today, progress in the field of high contrast imaging has allowed direct images of several exoplanetary systems to be taken (cf. HR 8799, Fomalhaut). In the near future, several new instruments are going to dramatically improve our sensitivity to exoplanet detection. Among these, SPHERE ( Spectro Polarimetric High contrast Exoplanet REsearch ) at the VLT, MIRI ( Mid Infra-Red Instrument) onboard JWST and the ELT will be equipped with coronagraphs to reveal faint objects in the vicinity of nearby stars. We made use of the Lyon group (COND) evolutionary models of young (sub-) stellar objects and exoplanets to compare the sensitivity of these different instruments using their estimated coronagraphic profiles. From this comparison, we present a catalogue of targets which are particularilly well suited for the different instruments. [less ▲]

The tandem catalysis of ring-closing metathesis/atom transfer radical reactions was investigated with the homobimetallic ruthenium-indenylidene complex [(p-cymene)Ru(mu-Cl)(3)RuCl(3-phenyl-1-indenylidene)(PCy3)] (1) to generate active species in situ. The two catalytic processes were first carried out independently in a case study before the whole sequence was optimized and applied to the synthesis of several polyhalogenated bicyclic gamma-lactams and lactones from alpha,omega-diene substrates bearing trihaloacetamide or trichloroacetate functionalities. The individual steps were carefully monitored by H-1 and P-31 NMR spectroscopies in order to understand the intimate details of the catalytic cycles. Polyhalogenated substrates and the ethylene released upon metathesis induced the clean transformation of catalyst precursor 1 into the Ru(II)-Ru(III) mixed-valence compound [(p-cymene) Ru(mu-Cl)(3)RuCl2(PCy3)], which was found to be an efficient promoter for atom transfer radical reactions under the adopted experimental conditions.

This paper reports the results of an experimental investigation of the performance of two types of magnetic screens assembled from YBa2Cu3O7-d (YBCO) coated conductors. Since effective screening of the axial DC magnetic field requires the unimpeded flow of an azimuthal persistent current, we demonstrate a configuration of a screening shell made out of standard YBCO coated conductor capable to accomplish that. The screen allows the persistent current to flow in the predominantly azimuthal direction at a temperature of 77 K. The persistent screen, incorporating a single layer of superconducting film, can attenuate an external magnetic field of up to 5 mT by more than an order of magnitude. For comparison purposes, another type of screen which incorporates low critical temperature quasi-persistent joints was also built. The shielding technique we describe here appears to be especially promising for the realization of large scale high-Tc superconducting screens. [less ▲]

Acetaldehyde, the first metabolite of ethanol, has been suggested to be involved in many behavioral effects of ethanol. However, very few studies have been published on the role of acetaldehyde in the amnesic and ataxic effects of ethanol. The aim of the present studies was to compare the profiles of ethanol and acetaldehyde in several behavioral tests, measuring motor coordination, learning and memory in mice. Female Swiss mice were injected intraperitoneally with ethanol (0-3g/kg) and acetaldehyde (100-300mg/kg). The effects of these substances on a series of representative behaviors were investigated. The amnesic effects were tested with an object recognition task and a one-trial passive avoidance test. Additionally, the rectal temperatures were used to evaluate the hypothermic effects of the two substances. Finally, motor coordination was assessed using the accelerating rotarod test. The results showed that acetaldehyde, like ethanol, altered memory as shown by a reduced performance in the passive avoidance test and the object recognition task. In addition, acetaldehyde at doses between 100 and 300 mg/kg induced significant hypothermic effects, but that was of shorter duration than ethanol-induced hypothermia. Finally, significant ataxic effects of both acetaldehyde and ethanol were observed in the accelerating rotarod test. Overall, the results of the present study clearly show that acetaldehyde, like ethanol, has amnesic, hypothermic and ataxic properties in mice at least at relatively high concentrations. [less ▲]
