Over the years, the simulation of manufacturing processes has introduced several numerical challenges for researchers in computational mechanics. In particular, the numerical modeling of sheet metal blanking process involves different numerical issues that must be carefully treated: a large and highly localized deformation in the shearing zone prior to fracture, complex contact interactions between the tools and the metallic sheet and finally, the ductile failure phenomenon. Despite that this process is one of the most widely used cutting techniques for mass production, the process parameters are normally set by empirical evidence due to the physical complexity resulting from the extreme amount of shearing involved. In addition, the strain-rate dependent behavior of the material must be taken into account due to high punch velocities encountered in practice. Thus, an accurate numerical tool is extremely desirable to optimize the setting parameters of this technique and will lead to a better understanding of the process. [less ▲]

Agricultural practices have a strong impact on soil bacterial and fungal community composition. Furthermore, microbial community composition can change with the stage of plant development. We are interested in exploring these effects in relation to changes induced by agriculture (conventional and reduced tillage) and plant stage (germination and flowering) in soil conditions. Here, instead of examining this impact at a high taxonomic level such as phylum and/or class, thus missing potentially relevant information from lower levels, we propose an original method: exploiting the available sequence information at the lowest taxonomic level attainable for each operational taxonomic unit. Results show that some microbial communities were impacted only by the tillage practice , while others were impacted only by the stage of plant. Changes in microbial community composition could be due to the soil conditions induced by the soil practice and the stage of plant. [less ▲]

Une convention de cessions d'actions est conclue entre diverses parties. Pour faciliter l'exécution de cette convention, diverses missions sont confiées à une partie, qui n'est ni le vendeur, ni l'acheteur, mais le dépositaire de certaines des actions qui font l'objet de l'opération. Le contrat lui impose notamment de transférer au vendeur la moitié d'un montant dont l'acheteur pourrait être ultérieurement redevable sur base d'une clause d'ajustement de prix. Vendeur et acheteur accordent également au tiers un mandat irrévocable pour effectuer certaines opérations. Cette partie est-elle liée par la clause d'arbitrage que contient la convention de cession d'actions? Voilà en substance la question à laquelle devait répondre le tribunal arbitral dans la sentence commentée. [less ▲]

This study investigates the meteorological variation in revealed preference travel data. The main objective of this study is to investigate the impact of weather conditions on daily activity participation (trip motives) and daily modal choices in the Netherlands. To this end, data from the Dutch National Travel Household Survey of 2008 were matched to hourly weather data provided by the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute and were complemented with thermal indices to indicate the level of thermal comfort and additional variables to indicate the seasonality of the weather conditions. Two multinomial logit–generalised estimation equations (MNL-GEE) models were constructed, one to assess the impact of weather conditions on trip motives and one to assess the effect of weather conditions on modal choice. The modelling results indicate that, depending on the travel attribute of concern, other factors might play a role. Nonetheless, the thermal component, as well as the aesthetical component and the physical component of weather play a significant role. Moreover, the parameter estimates indicate significant differences in the impact of weather conditions when different time scales are considered (e.g. daily versus hourly based). The fact that snow does not play any role at all was unexpected. This finding can be explained by the relatively low occurrence of this weather type in the study area. It is important to consider the effects of weather in travel demand modelling frameworks because this will help to achieve higher accuracy and more realistic traffic forecasts. These will in turn allow policy makers to make better long-term and short-term decisions to achieve various political goals, such as progress towards a sustainable transportation system. Further research in this respect should emphasise the role of weather conditions and activityscheduling attributes. [less ▲]

Depuis une vingtaine d’années, la littérature scientifique remettant en cause la démocratie représentative n’a cessé de proliférer : crise de la représentation, crise de la citoyenneté, corruption et aliénation du régime constitutionnel pluraliste, … Cette situation traduit-elle une mise à mal de la légitimité démocratique, une crise de la démocratie ou constitue-t-elle plutôt une remise en cause de ses dynamiques et procédures sans pour autant s’opposer à ses fondements, une volonté de transformer nos démocraties? Pour répondre à cette question, nous proposons de nous concentrer sur trois éléments distincts mais étroitement liés au sein de nos démocraties européennes au 21e siècle: le lien représentant-représenté (la représentation), la reconnaissance des libertés individuelles vis-à-vis de l’organisation collective de la société (les individus) et l’action du pouvoir étatique (l’Etat).

La Passion de sainte Salsa, jeune chrétienne de Tipasa martyrisée pour avoir décapité une statue du dieu Draco, est restée longtemps dans l’oubli. Cette passion “épique” ou plutôt “romanesque”, datée ici des premières décennies du Ve siècle, offre pourtant un témoignage exceptionnel sur le niveau culturel de la Maurétanie Césarienne à la veille ou au moment de l’invasion vandale. L’hagiographe, doté d’un talent rare, pratique une prose d’art, maniériste et poétique, caractérisée par le mélange des genres tardif et par le “style de joaillerie”. On trouvera dans ce volume une nouvelle édition critique du texte avec une traduction annotée et une série d’articles qui étudient les restes archéologiques du culte de Salsa à Tipasa et abordent tous les aspects littéraires de l’œuvre en la comparant notamment aux Passions contemporaines de Marciana et de Fabius, qui ont souvent été attribuées au même auteur.

ABSTRACT Objective: This part II article about the ‘words of prevention’ presents in a terminological way the content of ten current concepts used in the prevention domain which are closely linked to quaternary prevention: (1) overinformation, (2) overdiagnosis, (3) medically unexplained symptoms, (4) overmedicalisation, (5) incidentaloma, (6) overscreening, (7) overtreatment, (8) shared decision making, (9) deprescribing, and (10) disease mongering. Methods: with the support of the laboratory team of the University of Rouen, France, which is dedicated to medical terminology and semantic relationships, it was possible to utilize a graphic user interface (called DBGUI) allowing the construction of links for each of chosen terms, and making automatic links to MeSH, if any. Those concepts are analyzed in their environment in current literature, as well as in their MeSH counterparts, if any, and related semantic online terminologies. Results and Discussion: The rules in terminological development aspire to cover the whole field of a concept and in the meantime, it helps to avoid the noise due to proxy and not exactly related issues. This refers to exhaustivity and specificity in information retrieval. Our finds show that referring to MeSH only in information retrieval in General Practice/Family medicine can induce much noise and poor adequacy to the subject investigated. Conclusion: Gathering concepts in specially prepared terminologies for further development of ontologies is a necessity to enter in the semantic web area and the era of distributed data. [less ▲]

ABSTRACT Objective: This part I article explores the different meanings of relevant keywords for General Practice/Family Medicine (GP/FM) in the prevention domain. The aim is to contribute to information process in GP/FM by keeping in line with the main terms used in health care organization. Methods: Important keywords for GP/FM in the prevention domain were selected. Then, a search was carried out on the main sources in GP/FM databases, as well as in Medical Subject Heading and major terminological databases available online. Results and Discussion: There is discrepancy between the conceptual contents of major prevention models amongst the usual bibliographic sources of knowledge in GP/FM in particular and medicine in general. Conclusion: For GP/FM, distribution of preventive activities is now firmly established on a new constructivist model, privileging the doctor-patient relationships and introducing a cybernetic thinking on the health care activities with a special commitment to ethics and the positive duty of beneficence.
