Les tumeurs stromales extra-gastro-intestinales (les EGIST) sont des tumeurs rares qui se dveloppent en dehors du tractus digestif. Bien que l'exrse curative est accepte comme un traitement de EGIST non invasive, la stratgie thrapeutique pour EGIST localement avances et/ou mtastatiques n'a pas encore t tablie. Nous rapportons un cas rare de tumeur stromale extra gastro intestinale (EGIST) localement avance et fistulise dans le grle qui a pu faire l'objet d'une rsection curative aprs traitement par l'imatinib, avec une bonne volution post opratoire. Le traitement propratoire avec le msylate d imatinib suivie par une exrse complte (R0) est une option thrapeutique ralisable pour gurir les EGIST invasives.

L'alimentation des enfants ayant une d?ficience neurologique

Les besoins en nergie sont difficiles dfinir au sein de cette population htrogne. De plus, on manque dinformation sur ce qui constitue la croissance normale chez ces enfants. Des facteurs non nutritionnels peuvent influer sur la croissance, mais des facteurs nutritionnels, tels quun apport calorique insuffisant, des pertes excessives dlments nutritifs et un mtabolisme nergtique anormal, contribuent galement au retard de croissance de ces enfants. La malnutrition est lie une importante morbidit, tandis que la radaptation nutritionnelle amliore ltat de sant global. Le soutien nutritionnel doit faire partie intgrante de la prise en charge des enfants ayant une dficience nutritionnelle et viser non seulement amliorer ltat nutritionnel, mais galement la qualit de vie des patients et de leur famille. Au moment denvisager une intervention nutritionnelle, il faut tenir compte du dysfonctionnement oromoteur, du reflux gastro-sophagien et de laspiration pulmonaire, et une quipe multidisciplinaire doit se concerter. Il faut reprer rapidement les enfants vulnrables des troubles nutritionnels et procder une valuation de leur tat nutritionnel au moins une fois par anne, et plus souvent chez les nourrissons et les jeunes enfants ou chez les enfants qui risquent de souffrir de malnutrition.

Minimisation de l'effet de la grille collectrice dans une photopile solaire haute concentration solaire  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Une fois la croissance cristalline et la jonction sont ralises, on collecte la puissance lectrique dlivre par la photopile au moyen des contacts mtalliques dposs sur deux faces. Sur la face arrire il n'y a pas de problmes particuliers puisque toute la surface peut tre utilise ; la face avant pose essentiellement deux problmes : Du point de vue optique, le taux de couverture doit tre faible car la surface cache par la mtallisation est inactive ; Du point de vue lectrique, le drainage des photoporteurs doit se faire avec le minimum de chutes de tension dans le semi-conducteur comme dans le mtal. L'objectif de notre travail est de minimiser l'effet de la grille de collecte d'une photopile solaire homojonction (Si n+p) d'une gomtrie circulaire (rayon a=4.9cm), ayant une mtallisation l'argent (?M=1.610-6 ?.cm) et une rsistance de contact ?C=10-5?.cm2. Nos calculs sont faits sous les conditions : AM1.5 et une concentration variant de 11000 soleils. Les diffrentes pertes causes par cette grille sont : - La puissance perdue par l'occultation de la grille (taux d'ombre), - Perte due au contact mtal/semi-conducteur, - Puissance dissipe dans la rsistance de couche entre barreaux, - Les pertes dans la mtallisation de la grille. Nous rsumons, dans cet article, les rsultats de notre modlisation par : ast Dans l'intervalle [1, 200 soleils] le rendement de conversion varie de 14.7% 18.1% pour un angle thta (= 1/2 angle entre deux doigts conscutifs de grille) variant de 0.116 rad 0.044 rad, ast Dans l'intervalle [ {200,1000 soleils} ] le rendement de conversion varie de 17.8% 16.98% qui correspond ainsi une variation de 0.041 rad 0.026 rad de l'angle thta.

Vehicle underbody fairing  

DOEpatents

A vehicle underbody fairing apparatus for reducing aerodynamic drag caused by a vehicle wheel assembly, by reducing the size of a recirculation zone formed under the vehicle body immediately downstream of the vehicle wheel assembly. The fairing body has a tapered aerodynamic surface that extends from a front end to a rear end of the fairing body with a substantially U-shaped cross-section that tapers in both height and width. Fasteners or other mounting devices secure the fairing body to an underside surface of the vehicle body, so that the front end is immediately downstream of the vehicle wheel assembly and a bottom section of the tapered aerodynamic surface rises towards the underside surface as it extends in a downstream direction.

Bargaining and fairness.  

PubMed

The idea that human morality might be the product of evolution is not popular. The reason is partly that the moral principles that actually govern our day-to-day behavior have been idealized in a way that makes a natural origin seem impossible. This paper puts the case for a more down-to-earth assessment of human morality by arguing that the evolution of our sense of fairness can be traced to the practicalities of food-sharing. When animals share food, they can be seen as enjoying the fruits of an implicit bargain to ensure each other against hunger. The implications of this observation are explored using the tools of game theory. The arguments lead to a structure for fair bargains that closely resembles the structure proposed by John Rawls, the leading moral philosopher of the last century. PMID:25024181

Tax Implementability of Fair Allocations

An allocation is tax implementable if there exists a tax schedule under which the allocation is realized as a result of agents' optimization. Tillmann (1984) and Bs and Tillmann (1985) showed that the class of fair allocations that

Nuclear Astrophysics at FAIR  

SciTech Connect

An overview about the future international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research -FAIR- is given, with especial emphasis on the astrophysical aspects of the NUSTAR (NUclear StrucTure, Astrophysics and Reactions) project. Many types of astrophysically relevant experiments will be performed at NUSTAR. A common tool in all of them will be the large acceptance superconducting in-flight fragment separator (Super-FRS). Rare isotopes of all elements up to Uranium will be produced and spatially separated, thus allowing for the study of very short-lived nuclei. At the low energy branch of the SuperFRS the DESPEC-setup will allow for precise {beta}-decay measurements, including neutron emission probabilities, and for the study of the nuclear structure of very exotic species. High precision Penning trap mass measurements will be carried out with the MATS setup installed at the low-energy branch. Large scale mass measurements will be performed using a complex of storage and cooler rings, the NESR and the CR. In summary, a vast amount of new data far off stability will become available. This will be particularly interesting for the study of explosive nucleosynthesis events, like the rapid neutron capture and the rapid proton capture processes. At the high-energy branch of the SuperFRS, the R{sup 3}B setup will provide access to a large variety of kinematically complete measurements at relativistic energies, such as heavy ion induced electromagnetic excitation, knockout and breakup reactions or light-ion (in)elastic scattering in inverse kinematics. This will enable e.g. to study Gamow-Teller strengths or to determine astrophysical S-factors on exotic nuclei.

[The role of economics in fair rationing].  

PubMed

For several years academic disciplines have discussed the potential conflict between scarcity of funding and fair health care. This review article shows the necessity of involving economic scientists in this discussion as well as their contribution to rationalisation, prioritisation and rationing of health care services. Thereby, it becomes clear that rationing and justice are not a contradiction per se. The interdisciplinary discussion in Germany needs less disciplinary egotism and more willingness to seek solutions and compromises. In this context the procedures followed in other countries can serve as examples. PMID:22915227

This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. We think that math nights, fairs, and competitions can motivate students by answering not only cognitive needs but also social needs of the middle school student. This resource guide offers math content for family nights as well as investigations and activities for math fairs, including project ideas. For those students interested in testing their skills, we have included national math competitions created for middle school students.

Une recension des ?crits concernant la r?alit? psychoaffective des femmes ayant une vulvodynie : Difficult?s rencontr?es et strat?gies d?velopp?es

HISTORIQUE : Au cours des trois dernires dcennies, une attention grandissante a t porte ltude du syndrome de vulvodynie, soit un inconfort vulvaire chronique inexpliqu, prouv en labsence de pathologie prcise. En plus davoir des rpercussions physiques, lexprience de la vulvodynie comporte une dimension psychosociale. OBJECTIF : Cet article vise faire une recension des crits sur la ralit psychoaffective des femmes qui prouvent une vulvodynie. MTHODE : Une recherche documentaire base sur une exploration systmatique de textes prsentant des rsultats de recherche et recenss dans les principales banques de donnes en sciences sociales, dont Dissertation Abstracts, Current Contents et PsycINFO, a t ralise. RSULTATS : Cette recension des crits rvle, malgr la prsence de certains rsultats divergents, que les femmes ayant une vulvodynie affrontent souvent des difficults identitaires et psychologiques, qui sont influences notamment par les normes sociales de sexualit et de fminit. Pour composer avec ces difficults, les femmes dveloppent diffrentes stratgies visant diminuer le stress occasionn par la douleur et amliorer leur bien-tre psychologique. CONCLUSION : Les difficults relationnelles et psychologiques vcues par les femmes ayant une vulvodynie ne dcoulent pas seulement de la douleur physique, mais aussi du sens quelles lui accordent, souvent influenc par les discours sociaux sur lhtrosexualit et la fminit. Il importe donc dintervenir auprs des femmes en tenant compte de linfluence du contexte social tout en poursuivant le dveloppement des connaissances sur les aspects psychosociaux de cette exprience.

Le contrle de commutations dans une cellule bidirectionnelle bicommandable  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A Power electronics static converter modulate the energy flowing between two different source types. This induce constraints in converter topology which need to be taken into account to drive the switches specially during the changeover between two switches belonging to the same cell. If the control logic is well known when using current or voltage bidirectionnal switches, we propose a method which fits to bidrivable, current and voltage bidirectionnal switches. Petri net are usefull tools to describe the switches themselves. Aplied to the cell description they permit us to generate a component logic drive in respect with energy constraints. Un convertisseur statique ralise une fonction de modulation de l'nergie transitant entre deux sources de nature diffrente. La ncessaire continuit nergtique induit des contraintes dans la topologie du convertisseur qui se rpercutent sur la commande des composants qui le constituent, notamment lors de la phase de commutation entre deux interrupteurs d'une mme cellule. Si les principes de commande sont bien connus pour les interrupteurs bidirectionnels en courant ou en tension, nous proposons dans cet article une mthode s'appliquant aux interrupteurs bicommandables et bidirectionnels la fois en courant et en tension. Les rseaux de Petri constituent d'abord un outil de description prcis des interrupteurs. Appliqus ensuite la description du fonctionnement d'une cellule de commutation, ils deviennent alors un outil de synthse conduisant l'laboration d'une logique de commande respectant les contraintes nergtiques dans tous les cas de figure.

Rponse Les infestations de poux de tte (Pediculus humanus capitis) sont frquentes, surtout chez les enfants dge scolaire. Pour minimiser la rsistance des poux, lutilisation des insecticides et la stigmatisation sociale, on devrait limiter le diagnostic et le traitement ceux qui ont des poux vivants sur le cuir chevelu.

Fairness and the development of inequality acceptance.  

PubMed

Fairness considerations fundamentally affect human behavior, but our understanding of the nature and development of people's fairness preferences is limited. The dictator game has been the standard experimental design for studying fairness preferences, but it only captures a situation where there is broad agreement that fairness requires equality. In real life, people often disagree on what is fair because they disagree on whether individual achievements, luck, and efficiency considerations of what maximizes total benefits can justify inequalities. We modified the dictator game to capture these features and studied how inequality acceptance develops in adolescence. We found that as children enter adolescence, they increasingly view inequalities reflecting differences in individual achievements, but not luck, as fair, whereas efficiency considerations mainly play a role in late adolescence.

Reverse Your Science Fair with Educational Partnerships  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Do your students roll their eyes and groan at the idea of another science fair? If so, try implementing a different twist on science fairs, where teachers can arrange for adults to present projects to students. This non-traditional fair solicits faculty members and graduate students from local institutions to present activities to middle school students. Strategies on forming a steering committee, selecting a location, and recruiting presenters are included.

To raise public acceptance of new energy policies, promoting the fairness of the outcomes and of the decision-making procedure has been suggested. Very few studies have examined the role of fairness in public acceptance of rebuilding nuclear power plants. Therefore, using a large mail survey, we investigated the public’s acceptance of the decision to rebuild nuclear power plants in Switzerland

Helicopter hub fairing and pylon interference drag  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A wind tunnel test was conducted to study the aerodynamics of helicopter hub and pylon fairings. The test was conducted in the 7-by 10 Foot Subsonic Wind Tunnel (Number 2) at Ames Research Center using a 1/5-scale XH-59A fuselage model. The primary focus of the test was on the rotor hub fairing and pylon mutual interference drag. Parametric studies of pylon and hub fairing geometry were also conducted. This report presents the major findings of the test as well as tabulated force and moment data, flow visualization photographs, and graphical presentations of the drag data. The test results indicate that substantial drag reduction can be attained through the use of a cambered hub fairing with circular arc upper surface and flat lower surface. Furthermore, a considerable portion of the overall drag reduction is attributed to the reduction in the hub-on-pylon interference drag. It is also observed that the lower surface curvature of the fairing has a strong influence on the hub fairing and on pylon interference drag. However, the drag reduction benefit that was obtained by using the cambered hub fairing with a flat lower surface was adversely affected by the clearance between the hub fairing and the pylon.

Le carcinome urothlial plasmocytode de la vessie : une entit histologique rare au pronostic sombre  

PubMed Central

Rsum Introduction : Le carcinome urothlial plasmocytode est une variante histologique rare du carcinome urothlial. Seule une centaine de cas ont t dcrits dans la littrature. Dans cette tude, nous faisons tat de deux nouvelles observations. En combinant nos rsultats ceux des diffrentes sries dcrites dans la littrature, nous tentons de dfinir les caractristiques cliniques et pathologiques ainsi que lapproche thrapeutique de cette pathologie. Observations : Deux nouveaux cas de carcinome urothlial plasmocytode ont t diagnostiqus et pris en charge dans notre tablissement. Les 2 patients taient des hommes de 76 ans en moyenne. Lhmaturie tait le principal symptme. Les deux patients ont subi une rsection transurtrale de la vessie. Le stade tumoral au moment du diagnostic tait avanc dans les deux cas (respectivement T3N0M0 et T3N1M0). Les deux patients ont t traits par cystoprostatectomie. Lanalyse histologique de la pice opratoire, complte par une tude immunohistochimique, a confirm le diagnostic de carcinome urothlial plasmocytode. Le premier patient est dcd un mois plus tard des suites dune embolie pulmonaire. Le deuxime patient est dcd au bout de deux mois aprs avoir reu deux cycles de chimiothrapie adjuvante. Les donnes recueillies sur les diffrentes sries dcrites dans la littrature vont dans le mme sens que nos donnes, savoir un stade avanc au moment du diagnostic et un pronostic sombre. Conclusion : Le carcinome urothlial plasmocytode est une variante histologique rare et agressive du carcinome urothlial. Le diagnostic se fait souvent un stade avanc, et le pronostic est peu encourageant. Le traitement repose le plus souvent sur une cystectomie, suivie dune chimiothrapie adjuvante base de cisplatine. Lintrt dune chimiothrapie no-adjuvante na pas encore t tabli.

Fair share on high performance computing systems : what does fair really mean?  

SciTech Connect

We report on a performance evaluation of a Fair Share system at the ASCI Blue Mountain supercomputer cluster. We study the impacts of share allocation under Fair Share on wait times and expansion factor. We also measure the Service Ratio, a typical figure of merit for Fair Share systems, with respect to a number of job parameters. We conclude that Fair Share does little to alter important performance metrics such as expansion factor. This leads to the question of what Fair Share means on cluster machines. The essential difference between Fair Share on a uni-processor and a cluster is that the workload on a cluster is not fungible in space or time. We find that cluster machines must be highly utilized and support checkpointing in order for Fair Share to function more closely to the spirit in which it was originally developed.

It's so hard to be fair.  

PubMed

When employees believe they are being treated fairly-when they feel heard, when they understand how and why important decisions are made, and when they believe they are respected-their companies will benefit. Research shows that practicing process fairness reduces legal costs from wrongful-termination suits, lowers employee turnover, helps generate support for new strategic initiatives, and fosters a culture that promotes innovation. What's more, it costs little financially to implement Yet few companies practice it consistently. Joel Brockner examines this paradox, exploring psychological and other reasons that cause managers to resist embracing process fairness. The fact that it's relatively inexpensive to implement, for instance, may be why some numbers-oriented executives undervalue it. Many managers believe that they practice process fairness, but 360-degree feedback tells another story. Some corporate policies actually undermine it--such as when the legal department won't let managers fully explain decisions for fear that disclosure could expose the firm to lawsuits. And, frequently, managers simply follow the all-too-human tendency to avoid uncomfortable situations. But the good news is that organizations can take concrete steps to promote greater process fairness. Many studies have shown that training programs make a big difference, and the author describes the most effective format. In addition, warning your managers that they may experience negative emotions when practicing fair process will help prepare them to cope with those feelings. Finally, role modeling fair process on the executive level will help spread the practice throughout the organization. The fact is, process fairness is the responsibility of all executives, at all levels and in all functions; it cannot be delegated to HR. The sooner managers realize that and work to make it a company norm, the better off the organization will be. PMID:16515160

Qualit des preuves Des professionnels de la sant expriments participant un colloque et un groupe de travail subsquent ont discut et convenu des rvisions aux lignes directrices de 2006 en se fondant sur une recherche documentaire exhaustive, la rtroaction obtenue des utilisateurs du guide de pratique et les expriences cliniques personnelles. La plupart des preuves disponibles dans ce domaine viennent de lopinion dexperts ou de dclarations consensuelles publies (niveau III). Message principal Les adultes ayant une DD ont des problmes de sant complexes, dont plusieurs diffrent de ceux de la population en gnral. De bons soins primaires permettent didentifier les problmes de sant particuliers dont souffrent les adultes ayant une DD pour amliorer leur qualit de vie et leur accs aux soins de sant et prvenir la morbidit et le dcs prmatur. Ces lignes directrices rsument les problmes de sant gnrale, physique, comportementale et mentale des adultes ayant une DD que devraient connatre les professionnels des soins primaires et prsentent des recommandations pour le dpistage et la prise en charge en se basant sur les connaissances actuelles que les cliniciens peuvent mettre en pratique. En raison de linteraction des facteurs biologiques, psychoaffectifs et sociaux qui contribuent la sant et au bien-tre des adultes ayant une DD, ces lignes directrices insistent sur la participation des aidants, ladaptation des interventions, au besoin, et la consultation auprs de divers professionnels de la sant quand ils sont accessibles. Elles mettent aussi en vidence la nature thique des soins. Les lignes directrices sont formules dans le contexte dun cadre thique qui tient compte des questions comme le consentement clair et lvaluation des bienfaits pour la sant par rapport aux risques de prjudice. Conclusion La mise en uvre des lignes directrices proposes ici amliorerait la sant des adultes ayant une DD et minimiserait les disparits sur les plans de la sant et des soins de sant entre les adultes ayant une DD et la population en gnral.

Play and the evolution of fairness: a game theory model.  

PubMed

Bekoff [J. Consci. Stud. 8 (2001) 81] argued that mammalian social play is a useful behavioral phenotype on which to concentrate in order to learn more about the evolution of fairness. Here, we build a game theoretical model designed to formalize some of the ideas laid out by Bekoff, and to examine whether 'fair' strategies can in fact be evolutionarily stable. The models we present examine fairness at two different developmental stages during an individual's ontogeny, and hence we create four strategies-fair at time 1/fair at time 2, not fair at time 1/not fair at time 2, fair at time 1/not fair at time 2, not fair at time 1/fair at time 2. Our results suggest that when considering species where fairness can be expressed during two different developmental stages, acting fairly should be more common than never acting fairly. In addition, when no one strategy was evolutionarily stable, we found that all four strategies we model can coexist at evolutionary equilibrium. Even in the absence of an overwhelming database from which to test our model, the general predictions we make have significant implications for the evolution of fairness. PMID:12505174

An Experimental Investigation of Helicopter Rotor Hub Fairing Drag Characteristics  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A study was done in the NASA 14- by 22-Foot Wind Tunnel at Langley Research Center on the parasite drag of different helicopter rotor hub fairings and pylons. Parametric studies of hub-fairing camber and diameter were conducted. The effect of hub fairing/pylon clearance on hub fairing/pylon mutual interference drag was examined in detail. Force and moment data are presented in tabular and graphical forms. The results indicate that hub fairings with a circular-arc upper surface and a flat lower surface yield maximum hub drag reduction; and clearance between the hub fairing and pylon induces high mutual-interference drag and diminishes the drag-reduction benefit obtained using a hub fairing with a flat lower surface. Test data show that symmetrical hub fairings with circular-arc surfaces generate 74 percent more interference drag than do cambered hub fairings with flat lower surfaces, at moderate negative angle of attack.

FAIR: a Horizon for Future Charming Physics  

SciTech Connect

The science goals underlying the future international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research--FAIR--[1] that is being realized in Darmstadt span a broad range of research activities on the structure of matter. One component of this facility is directed towards studies of hadronic matter at the sub-nuclear level with beams of antiprotons. These studies focus on two key aspects: confinement of quarks and the generation of the hadron masses. These goals will be pursued by performing precision measurements of charged and neutral decay products from antiproton-proton annihilation in the charmonium mass region. In this talk I present some of the issues connected to FAIR in which the groups in Cracow and Juelich are extending and intensifying our cooperation.

Evolution of responses to (un)fairness.  

PubMed

The human sense of fairness is an evolutionary puzzle. To study this, we can look to other species, in which this can be translated empirically into responses to reward distribution. Passive and active protest against receiving less than a partner for the same task is widespread in species that cooperate outside kinship and mating bonds. There is less evidence that nonhuman species seek to equalize outcomes to their own detriment, yet the latter has been documented in our closest relatives, the apes. This reaction probably reflects an attempt to forestall partner dissatisfaction with obtained outcomes and its negative impact on future cooperation. We hypothesize that it is the evolution of this response that allowed the development of a complete sense of fairness in humans, which aims not at equality for its own sake but for the sake of continued cooperation.

Medical education research: is participation fair?  

PubMed

Medical researchers and ethicists emphasise the importance of equity, fairness and justice in general medical research participation. No individual or group should be over-represented or under-represented in research-there should be fair participation. Thus far little thought has been given to fair participation in medical education research. There is no evidence based answer as to whether vulnerable groups are ever exploited in medical education research, or whether other individuals or groups are overlooked. However the heavy reliance on undergraduate learners as subjects for medical education research creates two key threats to the fairness of that research. First, there is a risk that undergraduate learners, as a potentially vulnerable population, may be exploited in research settings. Often the faculty carrying out medical education research will be the same faculty that are responsible for delivering medical education and assessing medical students' competencies. It is possible as a result that medical students might feel pressured to participate in research. Second, there is a risk that other important groups of learners may be inadequately represented. Much medical education research is carried out on undergraduates and relatively little on those who have been doing CPD for many years. Thus much of our research concentrates on only a small proportion of medical learning. The relatively small amount of research carried out on those doing continuing professional development (CPD) is probably because of the difficulties of recruiting and retaining this group of learners in research programmes. Both risks threaten the integrity and usefulness of the resulting research product. Unfair participation in medical education research programmes could have serious repercussions for learners at all levels. PMID:24846349

FAIR - Cosmic matter in the laboratory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

To explore cosmic matter in the laboratory - this fascinating research prospect becomes available in 2018 at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research, FAIR. The new facility is being constructed within the next five years adjacent to the existing accelerator complex of the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research at Darmstadt/Germany, expanding the research goals and technical possibilities substantially. This includes new insights into the dynamics of supernovae depending on the properties of short-lived neutron-rich nuclei which will be investigated with intense rare isotope beams. New insights will be provided into the interior of stars by exploring dense plasmas with intense heavy-ion beams combined with a high-performance laser - or into neutron star cores by probing the highest baryon densities in relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions at unprecedented collision rates. To the latter, the properties of hadrons play an important part which will be systematically studied by high precision hadron spectroscopy with antiproton beams at unmatched intensities. The worldwide unique accelerator and experimental facilities of FAIR will open the way for a broad spectrum of unprecedented fore-front research supplying a large variety of experiments in hadron, nuclear, atomic and plasma physics as well as biomedical and material science which will be briefly described in this article.

In this paper, even-order-difference fairing (EOD-fairing) of point-sequence curve (PS-curve) is analyzed using a discrete Fourier transform filter (DFT-filter). It is shown that EOD-fairing of a reflection-padded PS-curve is equivalent to DFT-filtering, and a DFT-filter corresponding to the EOD-fairing operation is derived. Based on the concept of filtering measure, a method of determining an \\

Proton microscopy at GSI and FAIR  

SciTech Connect

Proton radiography was invented in the 1990's at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) as a diagnostic to study dynamic material properties under extreme pressures, strain and strain rate. Since this time hundreds of dynamic proton radiography experiments have been performed at LANL and facilities have been commissioned at the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (ITEP) in Russia for similar applications in dynamic material studies. Recently an international collaboration was formed to develop a new proton radiography capability for the study of dynamic material properties at the Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR) located at Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung (GSI) in Darmstadt, Germany. This new Proton microscope for FAIR (PRIOR) will provide radiographic imaging of dynamic systems with unprecedented spatial, temporal and density resolution, resulting in a window for understanding dynamic material properties at new length scales. These dynamic experiments will be driven with many energy sources including heavy ions, high explosives and lasers. The design of the proton microscope and expected radiographic performance is presented.

The Compressed Baryonic Matter Experiment at FAIR  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment will explore the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter in the region of high net baryon densities. The experiment is being laid out for nuclear collision rates from 0.1 to 10 MHz to access a unique wide spectrum of probes, including rarest particles like hadrons containing charm quarks, or multi-strange hyperons. The physics programme will be performed with ion beams of energies up to 45 GeV/nucleon. Those will be delivered by the SIS-300 synchrotron at the completed FAIR accelerator complex. Parts of the research programme can already be addressed with the SIS-100 synchrotron at the start of FAIR operation in 2018. The initial energy range of up to 11 GeV/nucleon for heavy nuclei, 14 GeV/nucleon for light nuclei, and 29 GeV for protons, allows addressing the equation of state of compressed nuclear matter, the properties of hadrons in a dense medium, the production and propagation of charm near the production threshold, and exploring the third, strange dimension of the nuclide chart. In this article we summarize the CBM physics programme, the preparation of the detector, and give an outline of the recently begun construction of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research.

Centaur D-1A nose fairing jettison test  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An experimental investigation was conducted to verify the functional and structural capability of the Centaur D-1A nose fairing. A full-scale flight-type nose fairing was jettisoned at the Lewis Research Center Space Power Chamber at simulated altitude. Two complete jettisons of the nose fairing were performed, one without aft helper springs and one with aft helper springs. A ''static'' rotation test was also performed to verify capability of the helper springs and to allow clearance measurements between the nose fairing and spacecraft envelope mock-up at certain discrete nose fairing rotation angles. Nose fairing trajectories, structural deflections, clearances, and hinge forces during jettison are presented. Data from subsequent Centaur D-1A flights, relative to nose fairing jettisons, are compared with the experimental results.

Do infants have a sense of fairness?  

PubMed Central

Two experiments examined infants expectations about how an experimenter should distribute resources and rewards to others. In Experiment 1, 19-month-olds expected an experimenter to divide two items equally, as opposed to unequally, between two individuals. Infants held no particular expectation when the individuals were replaced with inanimate objects, or when the experimenter simply removed covers in front of the individuals to reveal the items (instead of distributing them). In Experiment 2, 21-month-olds expected an experimenter to give a reward to each of two individuals when both had worked to complete an assigned chore, but not when one of the individuals had done all the work while the other played. Infants held this expectation only when the experimenter could determine through visual inspection who had worked and who had not. Together, these results provide converging evidence that infants in the second year of life already possess context sensitive-expectations relevant to fairness. PMID:22258431

Ceramic Fairings for A Hypersonic Flight Experiment  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Fairings composed of Rigid Fibrous Insulations (RSI) were fabricated, instrumented, and coated using techniques that were recently developed at NASA Ames Research Center. These RSI components are part of a specific assembly of materials which were built onto a wing of a Pegasus flight vehicle. The assembly was designed to collect aerothermal data during a designated mission to deliver a satellite to earth orbit. The objective of the flight experiment is to validate the theory of boundary layer transition at flight speeds in excess of Mach 3. The actual flight experiment is scheduled to occur during the summer of 1998. Fabrication and installation methodologies will be discussed with a brief description of the wing glove assembly.

Privacy, Liveliness and Fairness for Reputation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In various Internet applications, reputation systems are typical means to collect experiences users make with each other. We present a reputation system that balances the security and privacy requirements of all users involed. Our system provides privacy in the form of information theoretic relationship anonymity w.r.t. users and the reputation provider. Furthermore, it preserves liveliness, i.e., all past ratings can influence the current reputation profile of a user. In addition, mutual ratings are forced to be simultaneous and self rating is prevented, which enforces fairness. What is more, without performing mock interactions - even if all users are colluding - users cannot forge ratings. As far as we know, this is the first protocol proposed that fulfills all these properties simultaneously.

Nuclear Few-Body Physics at FAIR  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The FAIR facility, to be constructed at the GSI site in Darmstadt, will be addressing a wealth of outstanding questions within the realm of subatomic, atomic and plasma physics through a combination of novel accelerators, storage rings and innovative experimental set-ups. One of the key installations is the fragment separator Super-FRS that will be able to deliver an unprecedented range of radioactive ion beams (RIBs) in the energy range of 0-1.5 GeV/u to the envisaged experiments collected within the NuSTAR collaboration. This will in particular permit new experimental investigations of nuclear few-body systems at extreme isospins, also reaching beyond the drip-lines, using the NuSTAR-R3B set-up. The outcome of pilot experiments on unbound systems are reported, as well as crucial detector upgrades.

Parallel job scheduling policies to improve fairness : a case study.  

SciTech Connect

Balancing fairness, user performance, and system performance is a critical concern when developing and installing parallel schedulers. Sandia uses a customized scheduler to manage many of their parallel machines. A primary function of the scheduler is to ensure that the machines have good utilization and that users are treated in a 'fair' manner. A separate compute process allocator (CPA) ensures that the jobs on the machines are not too fragmented in order to maximize throughput. Until recently, there has been no established technique to measure the fairness of parallel job schedulers. This paper introduces a 'hybrid' fairness metric that is similar to recently proposed metrics. The metric uses the Sandia version of a 'fairshare' queuing priority as the basis for fairness. The hybrid fairness metric is used to evaluate a Sandia workload. Using these results, multiple scheduling strategies are introduced to improve performance while satisfying user and system performance constraints.

Neural segregation of objective and contextual aspects of fairness.  

PubMed

Perception of fairness can influence outcomes in human exchange. However, an inherent subjectivity in attribution renders it difficult to manipulate fairness experimentally. Here using a modified ultimatum game, within a varying social context, we induced a bias in human subjects' acceptance of objectively identical offers. To explain this fairness-related behavior, we use a computational model to specify metrics for the objective and contextual aspects of fairness, testing for correlations between these model parameters and brain activity determined using functional magnetic resonance imaging. We show that objective social inequality, as defined by our model, is tracked in posterior insula cortex. Crucially, this inequality is integrated with social context in posterior and mid-insula, consistent with construction of a fairness motivation that flexibly adapted to the social environment. We suggest that the dual importance of objective and contextual aspects to fairness we highlight might explain seemingly inconsistent societal phenomena, including public attitudes to income disparities.

A Study of Fairness in Packet-Switching Networks

The use of channel scheduling to improve a measure of fairness in packet-switching networks is investigated. This fairness measure is based on mean end-to-end delays derived from Kleinrock's classical model. The network designer can incorporate any desired relative delay among user classes into this fairness measure. It is found that scheduling is helpful in reallocating delay among user classes and

Fair loss-tolerant quantum coin flipping  

SciTech Connect

Coin flipping is a cryptographic primitive in which two spatially separated players, who do not trust each other, wish to establish a common random bit. If we limit ourselves to classical communication, this task requires either assumptions on the computational power of the players or it requires them to send messages to each other with sufficient simultaneity to force their complete independence. Without such assumptions, all classical protocols are so that one dishonest player has complete control over the outcome. If we use quantum communication, on the other hand, protocols have been introduced that limit the maximal bias that dishonest players can produce. However, those protocols would be very difficult to implement in practice because they are susceptible to realistic losses on the quantum channel between the players or in their quantum memory and measurement apparatus. In this paper, we introduce a quantum protocol and we prove that it is completely impervious to loss. The protocol is fair in the sense that either player has the same probability of success in cheating attempts at biasing the outcome of the coin flip. We also give explicit and optimal cheating strategies for both players.

Physics Programme of PANDA at FAIR  

E-print Network

The standard model and Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) have undergone rigorous tests at distances much shorter than the size of a nucleon. Up to now, the predicted phenomena are reproduced rather well. However, at distances comparable to the size of a nucleon, new experimental results keep appearing which cannot be described consistently by effective theories based on QCD. The physics of strange and charmed quarks holds the potential to connect the two energy domains, interpolating between the limiting scales of QCD. This is the regime which will be explored using the future Antiproton Annihilations at Darmstadt (PANDA) experiment at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR). In this contribution some of the most relevant physics topics are detailed; and the reason why PANDA is the ideal detector to study them is given. Precision studies of hadron formation in the charmonium region will greatly advance our understanding of hadronic structure. It may reveal particles beyond the two and three-quark configuration, some of which are predicted to have exotic quantum numbers in that mass region. It will deepen the understanding of the charmonium spectrum, where unpredicted states have been found recently by the B-factories. To date the structure of the nucleon, in terms of parton distributions, has been mainly investigated using scattering experiments. Complementary information will be acquired measuring electro-magnetic final states at PANDA.

The role of authority power in explaining procedural fairness effects.  

PubMed

Building on fairness heuristic theory, fairness theory, and trust development models, we argue that unfairly enacted procedures decrease followers' trust in the authority particularly when authorities have high power over their followers. Moreover, we expected trust to mediate procedural fairness effects on followers' attitudes (authorities' legitimacy and charisma attributed to authorities) and organizational citizenship behavior. Procedural fairness effects on these variables, as mediated by trust, should therefore also be stronger when authority power is high. The results of a single- and multisource field study and a laboratory experiment supported these predictions. These studies support the role of authority power as a theoretically and practically relevant moderator of procedural fairness effects and show that its effectiveness is explained through trust in authorities.

More on benchmarks of fairness: response to Ballantyne.  

PubMed

This paper challenges the fitness of Angela Ballantyne's proposed theory of exploitation by situating her 'fair risk account' in an ongoing dialogue about the adequacy conditions for benchmarks of fairness. It identifies four adequacy conditions: (1) the ability to focus on level rather than type of benefit; (2) the ability to focus on micro-level rather than macro-level fairness; (3) the ability to prevent discrimination based on need; and (4) the ability to prescribe a certain distribution as superior to all others. While the fair risk account satisfies the first condition, this paper argues that it has difficulty satisfying the last three conditions. Ballantyne's proposal includes several new and promising features, but in order for the fair risk account to be useful in identifying and preventing exploitation, Ballantyne must either clarify and augment her theory or challenge the relevance of the adequacy conditions it fails to meet.

Fairness as partiality aversion: the development of procedural justice.  

PubMed

Adults and children dislike inequity-people being paid unequally for equal work. However, adults will allow inequity if the inequity is determined using an impartial procedure, indicating that they value procedural justice. It is unknown whether children value procedural justice when distributing resources. We investigated whether 5- to 8-year-old children would willingly create inequity between two recipients if they could do so using an impartial procedure. In Experiment 1, children preferred to use an impartial procedure (spinning a wheel that gave both recipients an equal chance to get a resource) over a partial procedure (spinning a wheel that gave one recipient a much better chance to get the resource). In Experiments 2 and 3, children preferred to use the same impartial procedure to assign a resource to one of two recipients, even over an option of keeping things equal by throwing the resource in the trash. Importantly, children preferred to throw the resource in the trash to uphold equality when the only other option was a partial procedure. Older children showed a stronger aversion to using partial procedures than younger children. These results suggest that children value procedural justice increasingly during middle childhood and that their fairness concerns may be more about avoiding partiality than inequity per se.

Does Fair Trade Help to Avoid Poverty Traps? The effect of Fair Trade on Producers' Income and Schooling Decisions  

Microsoft Academic Search

We evaluate the impact of fair trade (FT) affiliation on a sample of (treatment and control) producers from two different fair trade projects in a poorer and a relatively better off area of Peru. In both projects, we find that producer's income is significantly associated with years of affiliation after controlling for spillovers\\/externalities. Estimates on the determinants of schooling decisions

Biological assessment of Ariane 5 fairing  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

United Nations Space Treaties [United Nations, Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, 610 UNTS 205, resolution 2222(XXI) of December 1966., United Nations, Agreement Governing the Activities of States on the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, UN doc A/RES/34/68, resolution 38/68 of December 1979.] require the preservation of planets and of Earth from contamination. All nations part to these Treaties shall take measures to prevent forward and backward contamination during missions exploring our solar system. As observer for the United Nations Committee on Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, the COSPAR (Committee of Space Research) defines and handles the applicable policy and proposes recommendations to Space Agencies [COSPAR Planetary Protection Panel, Planetary Protection Policy accepted by the COSPAR Council and Bureau, 20 October 2002, amended 24 March 2005. http://www.cosparhq.org/scistr/PPPolicy.htm.]. The goal is to protect celestial bodies from terrestrial biological contamination as well as to protect the Earth environment from an eventual biohazard which may be carried by extraterrestrial samples or by space systems returning to Earth. According to the applicable specifications, including in our case the French requirements [CNES, System Safety. Planetary Protection Requirements. Normative referential CNES RNC-CNES-R-14, CNES Toulouse, ed. 4, 04 October 2002.], the prevention of forward contamination is accomplished by reducing the bioburden on space hardware to acceptable, prescribed levels, including in some instances system sterilization, assembling and integrating the appropriate spacecraft systems in cleanrooms of appropriate biological cleanliness, avoiding or controlling any recontamination risk, and limiting the probability impact of space systems. In order to prepare for future exploration missions [Debus, A., Planetary protection: organization requirements and needs for future planetary exploration missions, ESA conference publication SP-543, pp 103 114, 2003.], and in particular for missions to Mars requiring to control the spacecraft bioburden, a test program has been developed to evaluate the biological contamination under the fairing of the Ariane 5 launcher.

D-1A nose fairing separation fitting load test  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Structural testing of the D-1A Centaur nose fairing was completed to determine the loads imposed during flight on the latch bolts of the fairing separation system. This testing was conducted to supplement and/or verify the analytic techniques used in calculating bolt loads for the D-1A, and to gain insight into the general structural behavior of separation latch systems. It was shown that the assumed bolt load magnification due to prying action of the latch fittings on the bolt does occur, but is strongly dependent on fairing shell stiffness.

Ground test program for new Atlas payload fairings  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

To establish the competitiveness of the revitalized family of Atlas launch vehicles (I, II, IIA, and IIAS) a new series of payload fairings, an 11-foot and a 14-foot diameter version, were designed to accommodate the widest possible variety of satellites. Because these aluminum fairings are new designs, the plant at which they are produced is new, and launch customers are very anxious to fly their payloads, an ambitious and efficient test program is essential. Five major tests have been planned for completion within the span of one calendar year. One of these has been completed, with every indication that it was a success, one is currently under way, and two more are scheduled to start in the month of April. Through effective use of test assets, facilities, and personnel, all testing will be completed, allowing the fairing design to be completely characterized and then qualified through analysis prior to first launch of each of the fairings.

Evolution of Fairness in the Not Quite Ultimatum Game  

E-print Network

The Ultimatum Game (UG) is an economic game where two players decide how to split a certain amount of money. One player (proposer) makes only one offer to the other player (responder). If the responder accepts the offer, the money will be split between them accordingly, but if not, neither receives anything. Although making minimal offers and accepting any offers is the most rational choice in UG, human subjects tend to behave more fairly in experiments. Previous studies suggested that extra information such as reputation or empathy is needed for fairness to evolve in UG. Here we show that fairness can evolve without additional information if the game is probabilistic, which we call the Not Quite Ultimatum Game (NQUG). In NQUG, players make decisions probabilistically and may continue interactions when the offer is rejected. These simple extensions greatly promote evolution of fairness in both proposers' offers and responders' acceptance thresholds.

Electromagnetic Cavity Effects from Transmitters Inside a Launch Vehicle Fairing  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

This paper provides insight into the difficult analytical issue for launch vehicles and spacecraft that has applicability outside of the launch industry. Radiation from spacecraft or launch vehicle antennas located within enclosures in the launch vehicle generates an electromagnetic environment that is difficult to accurately predict. This paper discusses the test results of power levels produced by a transmitter within a representative scaled vehicle fairing model and provides preliminary modeling results at the low end of the frequency test range using a commercial tool. Initially, the walls of the fairing are aluminum and later, layered with materials to simulate acoustic blanketing structures that are typical in payload fairings. The effects of these blanketing materials on the power levels within the fairing are examined.

Both evolutionary and developmental research indicate that humans are adapted to respecting property rights, independently (and possibly orthogonally) of considerations of fairness. We offer evidence from psychological experiments suggesting that enforcing ones rights and respecting others possessions are basic cognitive mechanisms automatically activated and grounded in humans sensory-motor system. This may entail an independent motivation that is more profound than considerations of fairness and impartiality. PMID:23445601

Attack and improvements of fair quantum blind signature schemes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Blind signature schemes allow users to obtain the signature of a message while the signer learns neither the message nor the resulting signature. Therefore, blind signatures have been used to realize cryptographic protocols providing the anonymity of some participants, such as: secure electronic payment systems and electronic voting systems. A fair blind signature is a form of blind signature which the anonymity could be removed with the help of a trusted entity, when this is required for legal reasons. Recently, a fair quantum blind signature scheme was proposed and thought to be safe. In this paper, we first point out that there exists a new attack on fair quantum blind signature schemes. The attack shows that, if any sender has intercepted any valid signature, he (she) can counterfeit a valid signature for any message and can not be traced by the counterfeited blind signature. Then, we construct a fair quantum blind signature scheme by improved the existed one. The proposed fair quantum blind signature scheme can resist the preceding attack. Furthermore, we demonstrate the security of the proposed fair quantum blind signature scheme and compare it with the other one.

A New TCP Congestion Control Supporting RTT-Fairness  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper focuses on RTT-fairness of multiple TCP flows over the Internet, and proposes a new TCP congestion control named HRF (Hybrid RTT-Fair)-TCP. Today, it is a serious problem that the flows having smaller RTT utilize more bandwidth than others when multiple flows having different RTT values compete in the same network. This means that a user with longer RTT may not be able to obtain sufficient bandwidth by the current methods. This RTT fairness issue has been discussed in many TCP papers. An example is CR (Constant Rate) algorithm, which achieves RTT-fairness by multiplying the square of RTT value in its window increment phase against TCP-Reno. However, the method halves its windows size same as TCP-Reno when a packet loss is detected. This makes worse its efficiency in certain network cases. On the other hand, recent proposed TCP versions essentially require throughput efficiency and TCP-friendliness with TCP-Reno. Therefore, we try to keep these advantages in our TCP design in addition to RTT-fairness. In this paper, we make intuitive analytical models in which we separate resource utilization processes into two cases: utilization of bottleneck link capacity and that of buffer space at the bottleneck link router. These models take into account three characteristic algorithms (Reno, Constant Rate, Constant Increase) in window increment phase where a sender receives an acknowledgement successfully. Their validity is proved by both simulations and implementations. From these analyses, we propose HRF-TCP which switches two modes according to observed RTT values and achieves RTT fairness. Experiments are carried out to validate the proposed method. Finally, HRF-TCP outperforms conventional methods in RTT-fairness, efficiency and friendliness with TCP-Reno.

Reactions to others' mistakes: an empirical test of fairness theory.  

PubMed

Drawing on fairness theory (R. Folger & R. Cropanzano, 1998, 2001), the authors examined undergraduates' reactions to advisor mistakes made in an academic advisement scenario. The authors hypothesized that perceived fairness, blame, and behavioral intentions to address wrongdoing would be influenced by outcome severity and the nature of the mistake (knowledgeable mistakes vs. ignorant mistakes; errors of commission vs. errors of omission). Results partially supported the hypotheses. Participants perceived scenarios as less fair and expressed higher intent to address the wrongdoing when the consequences were high in severity and when a knowledgeable person made the mistake. Participants attributed significantly more blame to the advisor in the high severity outcome conditions. Counterfactual thoughts mediated the effects of target knowledge but not outcome severity. The authors discuss theoretical and practical implications. PMID:19943403

Infants Distinguish Antisocial Actions Directed towards Fair and Unfair Agents  

PubMed Central

Three experiments provide evidence of an incipient sense of fairness in preverbal infants. Ten-month-old infants were shown cartoon videos with two agents, the donors, who distributed resources to two identical recipients. One donor always distributed the goods equally, while the other performed unequal distributions by giving everything to one recipient. In the test phase, a third agent hit or took resources away from either the fair or the unfair donor. We found that infants looked longer when the antisocial actions were directed towards the unfair rather than the fair donor. These findings support the view that infants are able to evaluate agents based on their distributive actions and suggest that the foundations of human socio-moral competence are acquired independently of parental feedback and linguistic experience.

Unmanaged care: towards moral fairness in health care coverage.  

PubMed

Health insurers are generally guided by the principle of "actuarial fairness," according to which they distinguish among various risks on the basis of cost-related factors. Thus, insurers often limit or deny coverage for vision care, hearing aids, mental health care, and even AIDS treatment based on actuarial justifications. Furthermore, approximately forty-two million Americans have no health insurance at all, because most of these individuals cannot afford the cost of insurance. This Article argues that Americans have come to demand more than actuarial fairness from health insurers and are increasingly concerned by what I call "moral fairness." This is evidenced by the hundreds of laws that have been passed to constrain insurers' discretion with respect to particular coverage decisions. Legislative mandates are frequent, but seemingly haphazard, following no systematic methodology. This Article suggests an analytical framework that can be utilized to determine which interventions are appropriate and evaluates a variety of means by which moral fairness could be promoted in the arena of health care coverage.

Proportional Fair Scheduling for Multicast Services in Wireless Cellular Networks  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recently, there has been extensive research on resource allocation schemes for multicast services that would satisfy the requirements of multimedia traffic. Although several schemes have been proposed to improve the performance of individual multicast groups, it is not easy to achieve both throughput efficiency and user fairness. In this study, we propose a new multicast scheduling scheme for achieving proportional fair (PF) allocation in wireless cellular systems. The basic idea of PF is to schedule the user whose corresponding instantaneous channel quality is the highest relative to the average channel condition over a given time scale. We first extend the PF metric to the extent that the scheduler can reflect the user's varying channel gain, and fairness, not only in the unicast case, but also in multicast transmissions. A multicast PF scheme maximizes the summation of the logarithmic average rate of all multicasting users. Thus, it improves the fairness to mobile users when compared to max-rate allocation, because the logarithmic rate gives more weight to lower rate users, while achieving high throughput. Moreover, the proposed scheme is less complex than max-rate allocation.

Evolution of Fairness in the Not Quite Ultimatum Game  

PubMed Central

The Ultimatum Game (UG) is an economic game where two players (proposer and responder) decide how to split a certain amount of money. While traditional economic theories based on rational decision making predict that the proposer should make a minimal offer and the responder should accept it, human subjects tend to behave more fairly in UG. Previous studies suggested that extra information such as reputation, empathy, or spatial structure is needed for fairness to evolve in UG. Here we show that fairness can evolve without additional information if players make decisions probabilistically and may continue interactions when the offer is rejected, which we call the Not Quite Ultimatum Game (NQUG). Evolutionary simulations of NQUG showed that the probabilistic decision making contributes to the increase of proposers' offer amounts to avoid rejection, while the repetition of the game works to responders' advantage because they can wait until a good offer comes. These simple extensions greatly promote evolution of fairness in both proposers' offers and responders' acceptance thresholds. PMID:24869922

Une alternative au cobalt pour la synthese de nanotubes de carbone monoparoi par plasma inductif thermique  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Les nanotubes de carbone de type monoparoi (C-SWNT) sont une classe recente de nanomateriaux qui ont fait leur apparition en 1991. L'interet qu'on leur accorde provient des nombreuses proprietes d'avant-plan qu'ils possedent. Leur resistance mecanique serait des plus rigide, tout comme ils peuvent conduire l'electricite et la chaleur d'une maniere inegalee. Non moins, les C-SWNT promettent de devenir une nouvelle classe de plateforme moleculaire, en servant de site d'attache pour des groupements reactifs. Les promesses de ce type particulier de nanomateriau sont nombreuses, la question aujourd'hui est de comment les realiser. La technologie de synthese par plasma inductif thermique se situe avantageusement pour la qualite de ses produits, sa productivite et les faibles couts d'operation. Par contre, des recherches recentes ont permis de mettre en lumiere des risques d'expositions reliees a l'utilisation du cobalt, comme catalyseur de synthese; son elimination ou bien son remplacement est devenu une preoccupation importante. Quatre recettes alternatives ont ete mises a l'essai afin de trouver une alternative plus securitaire a la recette de base; un melange catalytique ternaire, compose de nickel, de cobalt et d'oxyde d'yttrium. La premiere consiste essentiellement a remplacer la proportion massique de cobalt par du nickel, qui etait deja present dans la recette de base. Les trois options suivantes contiennent de nouveaux catalyseurs, en remplacement au Co, qui sont apparus dans plusieurs recherches scientifiques au courant des dernieres annees: le dioxyde de zircone (ZrO2), dioxyde de manganese (MnO2) et le molybdene (Mo). La methode utilisee consiste a vaporiser la matiere premiere, sous forme solide, dans un reacteur plasma a haute frequence (3 MHz) a paroi refroidi. Apres le passage dans le plasma, le systeme traverse une section dite de "croissance", isolee thermiquement a l'aide de graphite, afin de maintenir une certaine plage de temperature favorable a la synthese de C-SWNT. Le produit final est par la suite recolte sur des filtres metalliques poreux, une fois le systeme mis a l'arret. Dans un premier temps, une analyse thermodynamique, calculee avec le logiciel Fact-Sage, a permis de mettre en lumiere l'etat des differentes produits et reactifs, tout au long de leur passage dans le systeme. Elle a permis de reveler la similitude de composition de la phase liquide du melange catalytique ternaire de base, avec celui du melange binaire, avec nickel et oxyde d'yttrium. Par la suite, une analyse du bilan d'energie, a l'aide d'un systeme d'acquisition de donnees, a permis de determiner que les conditions operatoires des cinq echantillons mis a l'essai etaient similaires. Au total, le produit final a ete caracterise a l'aide de six methodes de caracterisations differentes : l'analyse thermogravimetrique, la diffraction de rayons X, la microscopie electronique a balayage a haute resolution (HRSEM), la microscopie electronique a transmission (MET), la spectroscopie RAMAN, ainsi que la mesure de la surface specifique (BET). Les resultats de ces analyses ont permis de constater, de facon coherente, que le melange a base de molybdene etait celui qui produisait la moins bonne qualite de produit. Ensuite, en ordre croissant, s'en suivait du melange a base de MnO2 et de ZrO2. Le melange de reference, a base de cobalt, est au deuxieme rang en matiere de qualite. La palme revient au melange binaire, dont la proportion est double en nickel. Les resultats de ce travail de recherche permettent d'affirmer qu'il existe une alternative performante au cobalt pour effectuer la synthese de nanotubes de carbone monoparoi, par plasma inductif thermique. Cette alternative est l'utilisation d'un melange catalytique binaire a base de nickel et d'oxyde d'yttrium. Il est suggere que les performances plus faibles des recettes alternatives, moins performantes, pourraient etre expliquees par le profil thermique fixe du reacteur. Ceci pourrait favoriser certains melanges, au detriment des autres, qui possedent des proprietes thermodynamiqu

Instabilits "l'interface" entre deux fluides miscibles. mergence d'une tension de surface effective  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Instabilities can develop at the "interface" between two miscibles fluids which exihibit patterns very similar to those observed between immiscible fluids. For example, a layer of colored glycerine hanged-up below a glass plate and placed into a water tank, gives rise to organized patterns. Also, a thin layer of glycerine falling into water is unstable and gives falling columns with a regular distance between each other. These similarities between miscible and immiscible fluids lead to the existance of an "effective surface tension" between miscible fluids. This effective tension has a meaning for short times only, and should tend to zero with time. It can be explained by the strong concentration gradient at the "interface". Les instabilits qui peuvent se dvelopper "l'interface" entre deux fluides miscibles prsentent des structures qui sont trs proches morpholiquement de celles que l'on observe habituellement l'interface entre deux fluides non-miscibles. C'est ainsi qu'une couche de glycrine colore suspendue sous une plaque de verre et place dans un rservoir d'eau montre le dveloppement de structures organises. De mme, une fine nappe de glycrine s'coulant dans l'eau se dstabilise sous forme de colonnes tombantes rgulirement espaces. Ces analogies tendent aller dans le sens de l'existence d'une "tension de surface quivalente" entre fluides miscibles. Cette tension effective, qui n'a de sens qu'aux temps courts, et qui doit irrmdiablement tendre vers zro avec le temps, peut s'expliquer par l'existence de forts gradients de concentration "l'interface" entre les deux fluides miscibles.

Adaptive role switching promotes fairness in networked ultimatum game.  

PubMed

In recent years, mechanisms favoring fair split in the ultimatum game have attracted growing interests because of its practical implications for international bargains. In this game, two players are randomly assigned two different roles respectively to split an offer: the proposer suggests how to split and the responder decides whether or not to accept it. Only when both agree is the offer successfully split; otherwise both get nothing. It is of importance and interest to break the symmetry in role assignment especially when the game is repeatedly played in a heterogeneous population. Here we consider an adaptive role assignment: whenever the split fails, the two players switch their roles probabilistically. The results show that this simple feedback mechanism proves much more effective at promoting fairness than other alternatives (where, for example, the role assignment is based on the number of neighbors).

In recent years, mechanisms favoring fair split in the ultimatum game have attracted growing interests because of its practical implications for international bargains. In this game, two players are randomly assigned two different roles respectively to split an offer: the proposer suggests how to split and the responder decides whether or not to accept it. Only when both agree is the offer successfully split; otherwise both get nothing. It is of importance and interest to break the symmetry in role assignment especially when the game is repeatedly played in a heterogeneous population. Here we consider an adaptive role assignment: whenever the split fails, the two players switch their roles probabilistically. The results show that this simple feedback mechanism proves much more effective at promoting fairness than other alternatives (where, for example, the role assignment is based on the number of neighbors).

Fair and unfair punishers coexist in the Ultimatum Game  

PubMed Central

In the Ultimatum Game, a proposer suggests how to split a sum of money with a responder. If the responder rejects the proposal, both players get nothing. Rejection of unfair offers is regarded as a form of punishment implemented by fair-minded individuals, who are willing to impose the cooperation norm at a personal cost. However, recent research using other experimental frameworks has observed non-negligible levels of antisocial punishment by competitive, spiteful individuals, which can eventually undermine cooperation. Using two large-scale experiments, this note explores the nature of Ultimatum Game punishers by analyzing their behavior in a Dictator Game. In both studies, the coexistence of two entirely different sub-populations is confirmed: prosocial punishers on the one hand, who behave fairly as dictators, and spiteful (antisocial) punishers on the other, who are totally unfair. The finding has important implications regarding the evolution of cooperation and the behavioral underpinnings of stable social systems. PMID:25113502

Combining health promotion classroom lessons with health fair activities.  

PubMed

This article focuses on the important role of the school nurse in promoting healthy lifestyle choices through networking, resource identification, and working with community partners. "Everyone Is Healthy at Northeast" was a health promotion program designed and presented in two ways: classroom lessons and a health fair. There were interactive health promotion classroom lessons on topics such as proper hand washing, the effects of tobacco, and keeping one's heart healthy. These lessons were enhanced by community partners in delivering the healthy lifestyle message through a variety of teaching methods: music, interactive games, and hands-on visuals. The health promotion education program culminated in a schoolwide health fair that showcased the healthy lifestyle choice information at various stations. "Everyone Is Healthy at Northeast" was a success and promoted healthy lifestyle choices through creativity, collaboration, and support from the entire school community. PMID:14731105

Ascent Heating Thermal Analysis on Spacecraft Adaptor Fairings  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

When the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) is launched, the spacecraft adaptor (SA) fairings that cover the CEV service module (SM) are exposed to aero heating. Thermal analysis is performed to compute the fairing temperatures and to investigate whether the temperatures are within the material limits for nominal ascent aeroheating case. The ascent heating is analyzed by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and engineering codes at Marshall Space Flight Center. The aeroheating environment data used for this work is known as Thermal Environment 3 (TE3) heating data. One of the major concerns is with the SA fairings covering the CEV SM and the SM/crew launch vehicle (CLV) flange interface. The TE3 heating rate is a function of time, wall temperature, and the spatial locations. The implementation of the TE3 heating rate as boundary conditions in the thermal analysis becomes challenging. The ascent heating thermal analysis on SA fairings and SM/CLV flange interface are performed using two commercial software packages: Cullimore & Ring (C&R) Thermal Desktop (TD) 5.1 and MSC Patran 2007r1 b. TD is the pre-and post-processor for SINDA, which is a finite-difference-based solver. In TD, the geometry is built and meshed, the boundary conditions are defined, and then SINDA is used to compute temperatures. MSC Pthermal is a finite-element- based thermal solver. MSC Patran is the pre- and post-processor for Pthermal. Regarding the boundary conditions, the convection, contact resistance, and heat load can be imposed in different ways in both programs. These two software packages are used to build the thermal model for the same analysis to validate each other and show the differences in the modeling details.

Flow-Level Fair Queue Management Scheme Stabilizing Buffer Utilization  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Multimedia traffic on the Internet is rapidly increasing with the advent of broadband networks. However, the Best-Effort (BE) service used with Internet Protocol (IP) networking was never intended to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) for each user. Therefore, the realization of QoS guarantees has become a very important issue. Previously, we have proposed a queue management scheme, called Dual Metrics Fair Queuing (DMFQ), to improve fairness and to guarantee QoS. DMFQ improves fairness and throughput by considering the amount of instantaneous and historical network resources consumed per flow. In addition, DMFQ has characteristics of high speed and high scalability because it is hardware oriented. However, DMFQ may be unable to adapt to network fluctuations, given that it has static setup parameters. Moreover, DMFQ is unable to support a multiclass environment. In this paper, we propose a new buffer management scheme based on DMFQ that can adapt flexibly to network conditions and can provide classified services. The proposed scheme stabilizes buffer utilization within a fixed range by controlling the buffer threshold, which affects the calculated packet discard probability. Moreover, by applying the proposed scheme to Differentiated Services (DiffServ), we achieve prioritized buffer management.

Une porte optique intensificatrice picoseconde a gain eleve: Caracterisation et application potentielle en imagerie de petits objets places dans des milieux diffusants  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Dans cette etude, nous avons developpe un amplificateur a colorant possedant ces deux caracteristiques. Le colorant choisi, l'iodure de 3,3'-dimethyloxatricarbocyanine (methyl-DOTCI), possede un epaulement dans la bande d'absorption a 620 nm ce qui convient bien a notre pompe femtoseconde. De plus, son maximum de fluorescence est a 720 nm ce qui est particulierement interessant dans le cas des etudes avec des tissus biologiques humains. En effet, la fenetre dite "therapeutique" se situe dans les longueurs d'onde rouge et proche infrarouge. Le phenomene d'amplification, qui se produit dans des conditions experimentales precises, est en fait une emission stimulee du colorant qui est largement favorisee par rapport a sa fluorescence naturelle (emission spontanee). L'arrivee du signal incident, dont la longueur d'onde correspond au saut energetique entre l'etat fondamental et l'etat excite ou se trouvent les molecules, provoque une avalanche coherente de celles-ci vers l'etat fondamental generant ainsi l'emission stimulee. Une des conditions necessaires pour l'obtention d'un gain eleve est que la duree de l'impulsion de pompe soit inferieure au temps de relaxation des molecules ainsi qu'inferieure au temps requis pour effectuer un trajet dans la cellule de colorant. Ceci nous a permis d'amplifier un signal incident par un facteur entre 103 et 104. De plus, ce gain eleve n'est observe qu'a l'interieur d'une fenetre temporelle d'environ 10 picosecondes. Nous avons integre cet amplificateur a notre montage de transillumination afin d'acquerir des images d'un patron de lignes opaques immerge dans un milieu diffusant liquide. Des images de lignes ayant une resolution spatiale de 200 mum ont ete obtenues. La cible etait placee au centre d'un melange contenant des proportions variables de lait et d'eau. Deux longueurs de trajet optique dans la solution ont ete utilisees: 30 et 50 mm. Pour determiner les proprietes optiques de notre milieu diffusant, nous avons mis au point une technique de caracterisation basee sur la distribution radiale des photons transmis a travers le milieu. Deux parametres de transport, les coefficients de diffusion effectif (mus') et d'absorption (mu a), caracterisent la forme et l'amplitude du profil radial. Le fit des courbes experimentales a des courbes simulees nous a permis d'extraire ces coefficients. Les courbes simulees ont ete realisees grace a une simulation Monte Carlo qui incorpore les conditions experimentales de notre montage de caracterisation. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)

Effets tardifs d'une irradiation corporelle totale sur le mtabolisme intraneuronal de la dopamine et de la srotonine  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Whole-body irradiation leads to delayed cognitive dysfunction which could result from perturbations of neurotransmission, specially the dopaminergic and the serotoninergic one. The aim of this study was to determine the concentrations of dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT) and their metabolites in three cerebral areas of rats, one month after (neutron-gamma) irradiation at 3.38Gy. An increase of DA, 5-HT, and their catabolites was observed. These effects are weak but observed in older rats. Au cours des mois suivant une irradiation corporell totale peuvent se manifester des troubles comportementaux qui pourraient tre la consquence d'altrations de la neuraotransmission, plus particulirement de la transmission dopaminergique ou srotoninergique. Nous avons recherch les variations des taux de dopamine (DA), de srotonine (5-HT) et de leurs mtabolites dans 3structures crbrales 1 mois aprs une irradiation (neutron-gamma) la dose de 3,38Gy. Les rsultats prliminaires mettent en vidence une augmentation des taux de DA, de 5-HT et de leurs catabolites ; ces effets sont plus discrets mais similaires ceux observs chez des animaux plus gs.
