Très flexibles et particulièrement bien adaptées à la production de petites séries, les techniques additives suscitent un intérêt croissant, notamment pour la mise en oeuvre de matériaux métalliques. Par-delà la diversité des techniques que ce terme recouvre (laser beam melting, electron beam melting, laser cladding…) et par-delà la variété des alliages qu’elles permettent de mettre en oeuvre, quelques caractéristiques récurrentes se dessinent: 1) La nature fortement directionnelle des procédés additifs, lié au fait que la pièce est fabriquée “couche par couche” 2) Des cycles de chauffe et de refroidissement ultra-rapides, en fonction des déplacements du/des faisceau(x) La présente communication s’attache à illustrer ces deux caractéristiques essentielles des techniques additives au moyen d’exemples touchant aux principaux alliages métalliques (aciers, alliages d’aluminium ou de titane…), et à en dégager les risques et les opportunités qu’offrent les techniques additives du point vue du contrôle et de l’optimisation des microstructures et des propriétés d’usage qui en découlent… [less ▲]

Mitral valve dysfunction is a relatively common heart disease which typically requires mechanical valve replacement, with consequent high social and economic costs. More specifically, ischemic mitral insufficiency following myocardial infarction has a dynamic behavior that can lead to failure in its detection in certain patients, creating a situation with increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Improving the tracking and the control of valvular pathologies is therefore crucial, as it offers significant opportunities to improve care, costs and prognosis for patients with this disease. To study heart and cardiac valve dysfunction, cardiologists need information about detailed pressure and flow dynamics around and through the valves, atria and ventricles. However, non-invasive information about pressure is currently limited to indices at specific times and invasive catheterization data, which is more traumatic for the patient, is not usually routinely available. One alternative to this involves mathematical modeling of the cardiovascular system which offers a non-invasive and inexpensive way of studying cardiac and circulatory dynamics. This is particularly beneficial where detailed, continuous measurements may not be practicable. This study consisted of the development of a multi-scale closed-loop model of the cardiovascular system that accounted for progressive mitral valve aperture area over the entire cardiac cycle. This multi-scale model, which included detailed mitral valve and left atrium models, was tested over a range of physiological situations and clinical data. The goal was to validate the model’s ability to reproduce clinically measured physiological and pathophysiological behavior in a manner that would enable a model to be made patient-specific using available data. The resulting model was designed to be made patient-specific, and thus capture and reproduce the patient’s unique hemodynamic state on both global and local scales. In particular, it was shown to provide significant information about the patient’s mitral valve dynamics and the detailed flow dynamics and pressure around it. These data are not currently available without extensive, invasive measurements, and this therefore represents a significant step forward in model-based sensing and diagnosis. It is hoped that the model and methods developed in this study will be a powerful tool in assisting medical teams in investigating, tracking, diagnosing and controlling the cardiovascular system. More specifically, the mitral valve, as well as other similar valves, could be directly monitored to improve the diagnosis, costs and prognosis of valvular dysfunction. Furthermore, the overall results justify detailed in vivo animal experiments to thoroughly validate these models and methods in advance of clinical trials. [less ▲]

We present a new parameterisation that relates surface mass balance (SMB: the sum of surface accumulation and surface ablation) to changes in surface elevation of the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) for the MAR (Modèle Atmosphérique Régional: Fettweis, 2007) regional climate model. The motivation is to dynamically adjust SMB as the GrIS evolves, allowing us to force ice sheet models with SMB simulated by MAR while incorporating the SMB–elevation feedback, without the substantial technical challenges of coupling ice sheet and climate models. This also allows us to assess the effect of elevation feedback uncertainty on the GrIS contribution to sea level, using multiple global climate and ice sheet models, without the need for additional, expensive MAR simulations. We estimate this relationship separately below and above the equilibrium line altitude (ELA, separating negative and positive SMB) and for regions north and south of 77° N, from a set of MAR simulations in which we alter the ice sheet surface elevation. These give four "SMB lapse rates", gradients that relate SMB changes to elevation changes. We assess uncertainties within a Bayesian framework, estimating probability distributions for each gradient from which we present best estimates and credibility intervals (CI) that bound 95% of the probability. Below the ELA our gradient estimates are mostly positive, because SMB usually increases with elevation: 0.56 (95% CI: −0.22 to 1.33) kg m−3 a−1 for the north, and 1.91 (1.03 to 2.61) kg m−3 a−1 for the south. Above the ELA, the gradients are much smaller in magnitude: 0.09 (−0.03 to 0.23) kg m−3 a−1 in the north, and 0.07 (−0.07 to 0.59) kg m−3 a−1 in the south, because SMB can either increase or decrease in response to increased elevation.

Cet atelier se compose de deux parties. Dans la première, Christophe Lejeune propose une typologie (en six familles) permettant d'appréhender la diversité les logiciels d'analyse de textes disponibles. Il explicite les apports de chaque famille, ses limites et son ancrage méthodologique particulier (en analyse de contenu, de discours ou par théorisation ancrée). La deuxième partie se concentre sur une seule de ces familles : les logiciels d'étiquetage réflexif (comme NVivo, Atlas.ti ou WeftQDA). Isabelle Duvernoy (INRA, UMR 1248 Agir) présente son expérience avec un de ces logiciels (notamment en termes de préparation du matériau, de codage et de rédaction de mémos). Christophe Lejeune illustre, quant à lui, l'usage des schématisations, les modalités de travail collaboratif et les requêtes textuelles. Ces témoignages permettront d'ouvrir une discussion à propos des atouts de ces outils ainsi que des pièges à éviter. [less ▲]

In recent decades, art historians have used the notion of program in order to characterize the structuring of an artistic ensemble by a thought or a common idea which may be of political, aesthetic or religious order. The three west portals of Amiens Cathedral lend themselves particularly well to a programmatic reflection because they are homogeneous in their chronology, their implementation and their style. The question is even more relevant in Amiens where the statues appear to be distributed and organized in a particularly harmonious and planned way. Once structural, stylistic and iconographic filiations with earlier buildings taken into account (Notre Dame de Paris, in particular), it should important to highlight some of the Amiens peculiarities. I place this research in line with Cécile Voyer’s remark which states that differences and variations convey precious information on the image makers’ intentions. My idea is to query some iconographic or formal particularities in echo with a figure linclosely associated with the construction process and with the theological-historical context. I am thinking, in particular, of the Council of Lateran IV convoked in November 1215, that is to say ten year before the building of the West portals supposedly started, which was attended by Evrard de Fouilloy, Bishop of Amiens, who is responsible for the reconstruction of the Cathedral from 1218. The eminence of the Dean Jean Halgrin of Abbeville, regent in Theology at the University of Paris and contemporary of the early stages of the reconstruction, invites us to wonder about his possible participation in the design of the overall Amiens.

Historiquement, les sciences sociales ont développé différentes techniques pour analyser le matériau langagier. Les recherches sur les média ont inventé l'analyse de contenu pour mesurer la propagande dans les journaux. L'analyse de discours a équipé les sciences du langage. Pour exploiter leurs entretiens, les sociologues se sont dotés de l'analyse par théorisation ancrée. Plusieurs décennies après leur élaboration, ces techniques sont mobilisées indépendamment de leur origine disciplinaire, du type de matériau et de la question de recherche. Cette autonomisation méthodologique peut séduire. Elle entretient cependant une certaine confusion entre technique et méthode. Partant d'illustrations concrètes, Christophe Lejeune plaide pour un recours raisonné aux techniques, qui n'entrave ni la rigueur, ni la réflexivité, ni l'inventivité méthodologique. [less ▲]
