Architects express themselves graphically in order to communicate ideas both to clients and to themselves. In practice, they rely on a variety of representations such as free-hand drawings, 3D computer rendered images, and photomontages to convey their design intent. Research to date has demonstrated differences and commonalities in the ways in which expert designers and laymen perceive visual understanding. It is still unclear how architects themselves use different types of representations to express different intentions, and how accurately their expected audience perceives those intentions. The purpose of this research is to investigate how laymen interpret the initial design intent of an architect’s design, and what role different forms of representations play in this process of understanding a design. This paper describes a five-step process for developing a survey that was used to gather data from 686 laymen respondents. It was found that certain types of simpler representations presented in specific contexts are unexpectedly found to be a more efficient way to faithfully transmit an architectural intent. [less ▲]

This paper focuses on the interpolation of the kinematic fields describing the configuration of geometrically exact beams, namely, the position and rotation fields. Two kinematic representations are investigated: the classical approach that treats the displacement and rotation fields separately and the motion approach that treats those two fields as a unit. The latter approach is found to be more consistent with the kinematic description of beams. Then, two finite element interpolation strategies are presented and contrasted. The first interpolates the displacement and rotation fields separately, whereas the second interpolates both fields as a unit, in a manner consistent with the motion approach. The performance of both strategies is evaluated in light of the fundamental requirements for the convergence of the finite element method: the ability to represent rigid-body motions and constant strain states. It is shown that the traditional uncoupled interpolation scheme for the position field approximates that based on the motion approach and that the coupling induced by the interpolation of motion yields superior convergence rates for the representation of constant strain states. This property is known to lead to finite elements that are less prone to the locking phenomenon. [less ▲]

Cet article examine la place du comic strip au sein du roman graphique contemporain à travers l'analyse de Little Tommy Lost (2013) de l'auteur américain Cole Closser. La particularité de cette œuvre tient en ce qu'elle se propose comme un pastiche rigoureux de divers comic strips des années 1920 et 1930, allant jusqu'à se faire passer pour une collection d'anciens strips oubliés puis redécouverts. Little Tommy Lost creuse donc une vague "rétro-réflexive" qui interroge la façon dont la bande dessinée peut remédier ses propres identités culturelles. Il s'agira de cerner les enjeux stylistiques, sériels, narratifs et culturels d'une telle remédiation rétro-réflexive. [less ▲]

Background: Identifying older people affected by cancer who are more at risk of negative health outcomes is a major issue in health initiatives focusing on medical effectiveness. In this regard, psychological risk factors such as patients’ perception of their own aging and cancer could be used as indicators to improve customization of cancer care. We hypothesize that more negative self-perception of aging (SPA) and view of cancer could be linked to worse physical and mental health outcomes in cancer patients. Methods: 101 patients diagnosed with cancer (breast, gynecological, lung or hematological) were followed for one year. They were evaluated on four occasions (baseline, 3, 6 and 12 months after the baseline). Their SPA, view of cancer and health (physical and mental) were assessed at each time of evaluation. Results: Negative SPA and/or view of cancer at baseline are associated with negative evolution of patients’ physical and mental health. Moreover, when the evolution of SPA and cancer view were taken into account, these two stigmas are still linked with the evolution of mental health. In comparison, only a negative evolution of SPA was linked to worse physical health outcomes. Conclusions: Such results indicate that SPA and view of cancer could be used as markers of vulnerability in older people with cancer. [less ▲]

The notion that death represents a passing to an afterlife, where we are reunited with loved ones and live eternally in a utopian paradise, is common in the anecdotal reports of people who have encountered a “near-death experience” (NDE). These experiences are usually portrayed as being extremely pleasant including features such as a feeling of peacefulness, the vision of a dark tunnel leading to a brilliant light, the sensation of leaving the body, or the experience of a life review. NDEs are increasingly being reported as a clearly identifiable physiological and psychological reality of clinical and scientific significance. The definition and causes of the phenomenon as well as the identification of NDE experiencers are still matters of debate. The phenomenon has been thoroughly portrayed by the media, but the science of NDEs is rather recent and still lacking of rigorous experimental data and reproducible controlled experiments. It seems that the most appropriate theories to explain the phenomenon tend to integrate both psychological and neurobiological mechanisms. The paradoxical dissociation between the richness and intensity of the memory, probably occurring during a moment of brain dysfunction, offers a unique opportunity to better understand the neural correlates of consciousness. In this chapter, we will attempt to describe NDEs and the methods to identify them. We will also briefly discuss the NDE experiencers’ characteristics. We will then address the main current explicative models and the science of NDEs. [less ▲]

Au cœur de l'espace de la cour, le confesseur du Prince présente un profil singulier. La relation qu'il entretient avec son pénitent est unique : tenu à l'obéissance envers le souverain ou son représentant pour les aspects temporels, ce religieux a la faculté unique d'examiner, de conseiller et de juger la spiritualité du premier personnage de l'État. Attaché à la personne du Prince, les relations de cet ecclésiastique avec les autres courtisans ne peuvent être appréhendées au moyen d'une grille de lecture hiérarchisant les rapports sociaux : échappant à l'organisation laïque – mais pas protocolaire – de la cour et ne dépendant pas directement de la Chapelle royale, le confesseur bénéficie d'une autonomie relative. En outre, son pouvoir politique, en partie officiel grâce aux dignités et charges dont ce religieux est pourvu, est avant tout perçu comme une magistrature d'influence à la portée difficilement mesurable. Enfin, les obligations matérielles liées à l'appartenance de ce prélat à un ordre religieux achèvent de distinguer cet ecclésiastique des autres serviteurs princiers. Cette communication visera à distinguer les particularités de la charge de confesseur princier au sein de la société de cour. L'étude portera particulièrement sur la cour de Bruxelles durant la première moitié du xviie siècle. [less ▲]

In applications, such as biomedicine and systems/synthetic biology, technical limitations in actuation complicate implementation of time-varying control signals. In order to alleviate some of these limitations, it may be desirable to derive simple control policies, such as step functions with fixed magnitude and length (or temporal pulses). In this technical note, we further develop a recently proposed pulse-based solution to the convergence problem, i.e., minimizing the convergence time to the target exponentially stable equilibrium, for monotone systems. In particular, we extend this solution to monotone systems with parametric uncertainty. Our solutions also provide worst-case estimates on convergence times. Furthermore, we indicate how our tools can be used for a class of non-monotone systems, and more importantly how these tools can be extended to other control problems. We illustrate our approach on switching under parametric uncertainty and regulation around a saddle point problems in a genetic toggle switch system. [less ▲]

A two-level real-time voltage control scheme is proposed to keep voltages within specified limits in distribution grids using Distributed Generation Units (DGUs). It combines a local and a centralized control of their reactive powers. The local control provides fast response after a disturbance, reducing its impact and enhancing voltage quality. The centralized control uses measurements collected throughout the network to bring the voltages inside tighter limits and balance the various DGU contributions. To this purpose, it adjusts in a coordinated way their reactive power set-points, taking into account the local controls. This discrete control solves at each time step a multi-time-step constrained optimization inspired of Model Predictive Control. The method effectiveness is demonstrated on a 75-bus test system hosting 22 DGUs. [less ▲]

A coupled Electro-Thermo-Mechanical Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method is developed considering the non-linear interactions of electrical, thermal, and mechanical fields. In order to develop a stable discontinuous Galerkin formulation the governing equations are expressed in terms of energetically conjugated fields gradients and fluxes. Moreover, the DG method is formulated in finite deformations and finite fields variations. The multi-physics DG formulation is shown to satisfy the consistency condition, and the uniqueness and optimal convergence rate properties are derived under the assumption of small deformation. First the numerical properties are verified on a simple numerical example, and then the framework is applied to simulate the response of smart composite materials in which the shape memory effect of the matrix is triggered by the Joule effect.
