In order to determine the fluid exchanges at the galleries wall during the excavation, drying tests of soils samples are achieved in a convective micro drying rig. The results of the drying tests permit to evaluate a mass transfer coefficient between the porous medium and the atmosphere. The influence of the drying temperature is studied. [less ▲]

A new hydraulic boundary condition modelling the hydraulic transfers between porous medium and ambient atmosphere occurring during gallery excavations is described. It combines two modes of water exchanges in partial saturation: seepage and evaporation flows. Numerical simulations of a gallery excavation in dilatant geomaterial are carried out in isothermal conditions. The results show the influence of hydric boundary condition on the convergence of the gallery and the importance of the determination of vapour transfer coeffi-cient between atmosphere and porous medium.

During long-term storage of radioactive waste, steel containers will be corroded. This process leads to hydrogen production. A boundary value problem has been proposed to study the numerical modelling of the gas migration and its coupling with the mechanical strains and stresses, under isothermal conditions. Biphasic fluid transfer model (considering water, vapour, gaseous hydrogen and dissolved hydrogen) is defined. A 2D axisymmetric case with simplified geometry close to waste disposal in clay is modelled. Fluid transport problem is first resolved. Then, coupled mechanics and fluid transfers are modelled to determine the coupling effects. [less ▲]

The secreted phosphatidylserine-binding protein milk fat globule epidermal growth factor 8 (Mfge8) mediates engulfment of apoptotic germinal center B cells by tingible-body macrophages (TBMphis). Impairment of this process can contribute to autoimmunity. We show that Mfge8 is identical to the mouse follicular dendritic cell (FDC) marker FDC-M1. In bone-marrow chimeras between wild-type and Mfge8(-/-) mice, all splenic Mfge8 was derived from FDCs rather than TBMphis. However, Mfge8(-/-) TBMphis acquired and displayed Mfge8 only when embedded in Mfge8(+/+) stroma, or when situated in lymph nodes draining exogenous recombinant Mfge8. These findings indicate a licensing role for FDCs in TBMphi-mediated removal of excess B cells. Lymphotoxin-deficient mice lacked FDCs and splenic Mfge8, and suffer from autoimmunity similar to Mfge8(-/-) mice. Hence, FDCs facilitate TBMphi-mediated corpse removal, and their malfunction may be involved in autoimmunity. [less ▲]

In this paper, we consider an interconnected power system, where the different Transmission System Operators (TSOs) have agreed to transferring some of their competences to a Centralised Control Center (CCC). In such a context, a recurrent difficulty for the CCC is to define decision-making strategies which are fair enough to every TSO of the interconnected system. We address this multiobjective problem when the objective of every TSO can be represented by a real-valued function. We propose an algorithm to elect the solution that leads to the minimisation of the distance with the utopian minimum after having normalised the different objectives. We analyse the fairness of this solution in the sense of economics. We illustrate the approach with the IEEE 118 bus system partitioned in 3 areas having as local objective the minimisation of active power losses, the maximisation of reactive power reserves, or a combination of both criteria.

L'intensification des élevages et la recherche de hautes performances zootechniques a eu notamment pour conséquence la mise en évidence d'un nombre restreint de races sur lesquelles tous les efforts de sélection se sont concentrées. Indirectement, de nombreuses races locales, pourtant bien adaptées à leur milieu spécifique, se sont vues de plus en plus marginalisées, au point même de se voir menacées de disparition. Pour lutter contre cet aspect négatif des progrès de l'élevage, des mesures ont été prises par l'Europe afin d'aider au maintien d'un patrimoine génétique potentiellement intéressant pour l'avenir.

Dysfunction of the proximal tubule (PT) is associated with variable degrees of solute wasting and low-molecular-weight proteinuria. We measured metabolic consequences and adaptation mechanisms in a model of inherited PT disorders using PT cells of ClC-5-deficient (Clcn5Y/-) mice, a well-established model of Dent's disease. Compared to cells taken from control mice, those from the mutant mice had increased expression of markers of proliferation (Ki67, proliferative cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), and cyclin E) and oxidative scavengers (superoxide dismutase I and thioredoxin). Transcriptome and protein analyses showed fourfold induction of type III carbonic anhydrase in a kidney-specific manner in the knockout mice located in scattered PT cells. Kidney-specific carbonic anhydrase type III (CAIII) upregulation was confirmed in other mice lacking the multiligand receptor megalin and in a patient with Dent's disease due to an inactivating CLCN5 mutation. The type III enzyme was specifically detected in the urine of mice lacking ClC-5 or megalin, patients with Dent's disease, and in PT cell lines exposed to oxidative stress. Our study shows that lack of PT ClC-5 in mice and men is associated with CAIII induction, increased cell proliferation, and oxidative stress. [less ▲]

We call register a set of markers (keywords or idiomatic expressions) allowing to spot social phenomena in textual material. The use of registers is common in qualitative sociology. Among various software functionalities dedicated to textual analysis, registers remains underdeveloped. Through their experiences, first users of the Cassandre qualitative analysis free software illustrate how registers are build and which difficulties are raised. [less ▲]
