The non linear behaviour of concrete is often simulated using local constitutive models based on the continuous damage mechanics theory. This approach however is not adequate for post-localisation studies with strain softening. It is well known that spurious mesh dependence appears in computations and cases of failure without energy dissipation. In order to improve computational performance second grade local models are chosen to include a meso scale in the continuous damage model. This approach differs from the nonlocal one in the sense that it is a local theory with higher order stresses depending only on the local cinematic history. 1D numerical computations with concrete specimens are presented. Using a random initialisation of the iterative solver of the equilibrium equation we search the existence of various solutions for the boundary value study and also to see if the second grade term regularise the problem giving results that are mesh insensitive and objective.

« ¿Bienvenidos a Miami ? ». Cuban American Politics from 1959 to 2004. Through a review of the main events that shaped Cuban migration to the United States, the article focuses on the transformation of Cuban Americans’ economic power into political power. After a period of internal struggle that sees the conservative stream overcoming the other political streams, from 1980 onwards, the community becomes active in the field of ethnic lobbying. Social control and cohesion in the community are two elements that are used to explain the success of the community (and its most famous advocacy group, the Cuban American National Foundation) in promoting a harsh American foreign policy towards Cuba. The author however argues that signs of dissensions have recently appeared due the different visions brought about by recently arrived migrants and the second generation Cuban American. The article concludes by replacing those dissensions into the context of emerging transnational practices in the community. « ¿Bienvenidos a Miami ? ». La política cubana americana de 1959 a 2004. Mediante el repaso a los principales sucesos que caracterizaron la emigración cubana hacia el Estado Norteamericano de Florida, el presente artículo se aproxima al origen de la transformación del poder económico en poder político de la comunidad cubanoamericana. A partir de 1980, despues de un periodo de luchas internas que llevó al conservadurismo al frente de la comunidad, ésta comienza su actividad en el campo del lobbying étnico. Cohesión y control social son la base del éxito de esta comunidad (y de sus célebre Fundación Nacional Cubano Americana) en la promoción de una rígida política exterior norteamericana hacia Cuba. El autor, no obstante, plantea la hipótesis de las primeras disensiones internas : la segunda generación de cubanoamericanos y la llegada de nuevos inmigrantes cubanos al territorio norteamericano han traído consigo una nueva perspectiva fuente de conflicto con la primera generación. Finalemente, el autor reflexiona sobre los efectos de dichas disensiones en el contexto de las emergentes actividades transnacionales de la communidad. [less ▲]

The behaviour of civil engineering structures subjected to wind forces is generally approached by means of finite element models. These numerical models are necessary since the shape of the structure as well as the representation of the applied forces are difficult to handle in closed forms. In stochastic dynamic analyses, the coherence of the applied forces – in this context coming from the wind flow – is represented by the off-diagonal terms in the power spectral density matrix. This matrix is obtained by assembling elementary matrices, each of them corresponding to a stochastically loaded finite element. Even though the unique rigorous approach is not so complicated, simplified formulations are generally used to set up these elementary matrices. These simplifications result in a bad estimation of the high frequency content of the applied forces. Comparing these approached power spectral density’s to the actual ones enables to determine numerical admittance functions which allow correcting the bad estimation of the forces. This paper presents several finite element formulations for the estimation of the applied forces and derives the corresponding expressions of the numerical admittance functions. [less ▲]

Cyrtina rigauxi Maillieux, 1909 is transferred to the genus Acutatheca Stainbrook, 1945 thus mentioned for the first time in the Frasnian of the Dinant Synclinorium and Roly "Massif" (Neuville Formation, Lower Palmatolepis rhenana Zone). Maillieux (1940, 1941) included Acutatheca rigauxi in Cyrtina demarlei Bouchard (nomen nudum) and C. heteroclita (Defrance, 1824). The specimens identified as Martiniopsis (Elivella) rigauxi by Maillieux (1940, 1941) [= Echinocoelia rigauxi sensu Vandercammen (1956)] do not belong to C. rigauxi Maillieux, 1909. They are redescribed as Dionacoelia secessus n. gen., n. sp., a species occurring with certainty in the Ermitage Member of the Moulin Lienaux Formation (Palmatolepis punctata Zone). [less ▲]

The brachiopods sampled from the Trois-Fontaines Formation in the Marenne quarry are mainly represented by two species: Spinatrypina (Spinatrypina) fontis n. sp. and Eifyris socia n. sp. Orthid, rhynchonellid, spiriferid and terebratulid brachiopods are also present but much rarer. Among them a new species, Bornhardtina equitis n. sp., is described, the others being only briefly discussed. [less ▲]
