This research deals with the validation of fluid dynamic models, used for simulating shoaling and breaking solitary waves on slopes, based on experiments performed at the Ecole Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Marseille's (ESIM) laboratory. A separate paper, also presented at this conference, reports on experiments. In a first part of this work, a fully nonlinear(More)
Laboratory experiments on cliff erosion were carried out in a monochromatic wave flume. Natural coarse sands are used to represent cliff erosion and bottom mor-phodynamics with a reasonable time scale. A bottom typology is established as a function of wave forcing, through the wave energy flux F and the surf similarity parameter ξ. The bottom types strongly(More)
Several pain scales are available for newborns, but the assessment of pain in these preverbal beings, who are in continuing neurological development, remains challenging for healthcare teams. Although neonates at the end of life are particularly vulnerable to pain and discomfort, no assessment tool has been validated in this specific population. The(More)
This document reviews the main data relating to the structural and functional organisation of olfactory perception in the premature newborn. The chemoreceptive systems (main olfactory, trigeminal, vomeronasal and terminal systems) develop in different chronological orders but quite at very early stage during ontogeny. The premature newborn, despite being(More)
La sensibilité olfactive du nouveau-né prématuré The olfactory sensitivity of the premature newborn Résumé Ce texte passe en revue les principales données relatives à l'organisation structurale et fonctionnelle de la perception olfactive chez l'enfant prématuré. Les systèmes chimiorécepteurs (olfactif principal, trigéminal, voméronasal et terminal) se(More)
UNLABELLED We report fives sporadic cases of hyperekplexia or startle disease characterized by a highly exaggerated startle reflex and tonic attacks. Affected neonates suffer from prolonged periods of stiffness and are at risk for sudden death from apnea. An early diagnosis is needed. Sudden loud sounds, unexpected tactile stimuli or percussion at the base(More)
