In this article, we present a Building Information Modeler essential for creating, viewing and evaluating the performance of a modular building project, based on a digital model. First, we explain our approach, called "by components" and its central notion of "catalog", capable of supporting the virtualization of the construction system in the modeler. Secondly, we describe the software architecture established for this original modeller, based on a dual-purpose data model: representing the catalogs of components and allowing the encoding of a specific project within the software. Then, our article will introduce the products obtained, in terms of operating geometric and semantic information from the catalog components. In particular, it will show how, depending on the driving activity types, these productions can be generated under different operating formats. Finally, the article will introduce the limits of this Building Information Modeler and the future opportunities provided by its extensibility. [less ▲]

La vente à la criée a toujours existé et, dans certains cas, elle a pu prendre la forme de courts poèmes, comme on peut le constater grâce à des témoignages remontant au Moyen Âge espagnol. C’est cependant à partir de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle que la poésie commerciale prend une véritable ampleur, via des supports aussi divers que les journaux, les feuilles volantes, les vitrines des boutiques, les images à collectionner ou encore les cartes postales. Cet article ébauche une histoire de la poésie publicitaire en Espagne, apporte des données sur ses auteurs, tout en appréciant la morphologie variée de ces textes, qui répondent à des stratégies de marché bien plus variées que ce que l’on pourrait imaginer. À la lumière de ces poèmes seront reconsidérés les usages du vers dans l’Espagne de la Restauration. [less ▲]

Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disease with skin maniifestations resulting from a dysregulated immune response. Itching is one of the most bothersome psoriasis symptoms for patients and important factor contributing to disease severity. Apremilast , is an oral small-molecule phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitor, works intracellularly within immune cells to regulate the production of inflammatory médiators associated with the pathogenesis of psoriasis by increasing cyclic adenosine monophophate (cAMP) levels. Apremilast was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of adult patients with patients with active psoriatic arthritis and for patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. Apremilast has since been approved in multiple countries, including those in European Union,as well as Switzerland, Canada and Australia. LIBERATE (Evaluation in Placebo-Controlled Study of Oral Apremilast and Etanercept in Plaque Psoriasis; NCT01690299) is global phase 3b study evaluating the efficacity, safety, and tolerability of apremilast or etarnercept, compared with placebo, for the treatment of biologic-naive patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

In 1964-1974, the German artist Max Ernst created, with the help of two friends, a series of works (books, movie, paintings) related to the astronomer Wilhelm Tempel. Mixing actual texts by Tempel and artistic features, this series pays homage to the astronomer by recalling his life and discoveries. Moreover, the core of the project, the book Maximiliana or the Illegal Practice of Astronomy, actually depicts the way science works, making this artwork a most original tribute to a scientist.

Aphids cause serious damages to crops not only by tacking sap but also by transmitting numerous viruses. To develop biological control, the aphid alarm pheromone, namely E-β-farnesene (EβF), has been demonstrated to be efficient to repel aphids and as attract beneficials, making it a potential tool to control aphid pests. Considering aphids also as virus vectors, changes of their behaviour could also interfere with the virus acquisition and transmission process. Here, a combination of two aphid species and two potato virus models were selected to test the influence of EβF release on aphid and virus dispersion under laboratory conditions. EβF release was found to significantly decrease the population of M. persicae and M. euphorbiae around the infochemical releaser but simultaneously also increasing the dispersal of Potato Virus Y (PVY). At the opposite, no significant difference for Potato Leaf Roll Virus (PLRV) transmission efficiency was observed with similar aphid alarm pheromone releases for none of the aphid species. These results provide some support to carefully consider infochemical releasers not only for push – pull strategy and pest control but also to include viral disease in a the plant protection to aphids as they are also efficient virus vectors. Impact of aphid kinds and transmission mechanisms will be discussed according to the large variation found between persistent and non persistent potato viruses and interactions with aphids and related infochemicals.

Les services de renseignement qui agissent dans un cadre par nature secret peuvent induire une certaine méfiance chez le citoyen. Dans cette période troublée que nous traversons, le grand public se doit d’être informé sur le fonctionnement des services de renseignement belges et le contrôle de ces derniers. Pierre angulaire du système de contrôle, cet ouvrage cherche à apporter une analyse objective du travail réalisé par Comité R dans sa relation avec les acteurs politiques avant la sixième réforme de l’Etat. Ce livre cherche ainsi, sans prétention, à contribuer au développement de la culture du renseignement en Belgique ou, dans une certaine mesure, à lever le voile sur certains préjugés. [less ▲]

For hyperspectral imaging, diffraction gratings based spectrometers exhibit high spectral resolution and optical performance. Among those spectrometers, the Offner type (which consists of an entrance slit, two concave mirrors and convex grating) offers a lot of advantages. In this paper, we propose the design and modelization of a convex grating which covers a spectral band ranging from 0.7 μm to 5 μm with a minimum diffraction efficiency of 20% at 800 nm, 50% at 3000 nm and 25% at 5000 nm. For a so wide band, a grating with a single blaze cannot satisfy these requirements. We will therefore propose an approach of multi-blaze grating which is subdivided into different sections each with its own blaze angle. Meanwhile, we perform the diffraction efficiency prediction using the scalar and rigorous theories to prove the compliance of this design with the technical specifications. The rigorous theory will also allow us to study the polarization sensitivity of this grating and the calculation of the diffraction efficiency of a grating with a profile degraded by manufacturing errors to assess the impact on the diffraction efficiency and the sensitivity to polarization [less ▲]

This PhD thesis – composed of a series of five papers tied together by an introduction and conclusions – explores the functioning of an Incident Reporting System used in a high-risk organization. It aims at understanding how safety is actually constructed by and through this reporting system and what it actually does to the meaning of safety when it prescribes a set of sociotechnical practices. From a conceptual point of view, this PhD thesis departs from classical risk or vulnerability analyses which tend to measure factors in order to produce what are supposed to be “objective” results and “manageable” recommendations for decision makers. By relying on a constructivist understanding of vulnerability, this research explores and characterizes situations and events the consequences of which are ambiguous and the probabilities of which are uncertain. It thus broadens the scope of classical risk or vulnerability analyses and complements it with a qualitative and discourse-based attention to organizational, cultural and ethical questions. [less ▲]
